    They are first mentioned during the reign of Artaxerxes II, IIRC.

    I don't know - we'll really have to see how that looks with our units
    (Same goes with ChivalryTW: I tried RSII environments, and it's ugly as hell in that mod. RS 1.6 feels a lot more "dark", and that might be what we need)

    On the skinner part: why not? Everyone's welcome

    Can't add more unit if there weren't more historically...


    ...but lucky you, there were
    We're adding quite a few new AOR units + revised faction rosters.

    Could not you add some newer horse skins with lances?

    Anusiya Asabari should either have a lance or a sagaris as their secondary weapon.


    Also, both persians and medians should have a unit of lancers, armed either with bow and lance, or lance and axe.

    interesting. the first documented use of scythed chariots occured during the Lichchavi campaign of the Magadhan Emperor Ajatashatru who reigned from 491 BC to 461 BC.

    Looks great, but could you tell me, will you be changing building trees in EDB? And when you talk about 'revised unit rosters', how much difference does that mean--new skins/stats for old units or totally new units (I'm not referring to the currently nonplayable factions, but major factions like Persia)?

    I am curious because I am working on a sub-mod which builds on ROP as it is on current release--just wondering how much will be changed to bring it up to date with 3.0.

    Let us just say RoPIII is not a patch; the submod would have to be completely redone.
    UI will be different, tech trees will be different, rosters will have revised and new units, etc, etc.

    So 3.0 will almost be an entirely new mod?

    I seee... well that sucks for me, although it sounds good for ROP. Maybe I will just wait for ROP3 to be released before continuing my work.

    Yes, but then again not in the way of RSII. Somewhere in between

    a late campaign, with Persia already as an empire and at war with Athens and Sparta...start date is 490 BC right where the main campaign leaves off. I am using BI.exe so factions can re emerge and horde and the AI will use naval invasions a lot...with a bunch of scripted revolts in the empire to make things more difficult... among other things. mostly for people who want to play Greco-Persian Wars, I am trying to balance it so it is difficult for every faction.. not easy.

    Sounds like Persian Invasion... Except your mod will probably work better than theirs did. But scripted revolts? That sounds a bit much. I mean what's the point in bothering to manage settlements properly if some of them are guaranteed to revolt for the sake of it?

    I noticed in the last build that if you are zoomed in during a battle and you pass over cavalry the warriors simply disappear/reappear when they reach a certain point at the edge of the screen. Is there something being done to rectify this? I would like to add my congrats to the team for doing something I can't and allowing us all to enjoy the fruits of the labour. cheers!
    No, it's the opposite. You've become the troller by bringing it up and trolling me.

    I'd not got as far as calling anyone a troll; I just hope you understand my (and the other people's) point
