    Default Persian Invasion Complete Edition Released


    version 1.0

    Persian Invasion is a modification for Rome - Total War 1.5 that begins in 490BC

    The vast Persian Empire celebrates a golden age of prosperity, and looms over the smaller states that surround it. The king of Persia, Darius the Great, is a tolerant leader, but he has not forgotten what happened in Ionia, and may yet seek revenge for Greek treachery...

    Persian Invasion comes complete with many new unit models, skins, and other textures. Plus complete unit info cards, expertly constructed by Lanjane:

    Persian Invasion also features two fully playable campaigns, based around a vast campaign map.

    The first focuses on Greek Hegemony, allowing you to play as any one of seven Greek City-States in a quest for dominance over all of Greece and beyond. Although you begin the campaign in a shaky alliance with your Greek neighbors, due to the Persian threat, it is only a matter of time before all hell breaks loose in a fierce fight for control.


    A Hegemony campaign is begun, playing as Athens:

    The second campaign better simulates the main focal point of this modification; that being the Greco-Persian Wars. In this campaign the seven Greek City-States are fully united in defiance of the Persians, allowing you to muster soldiers from all the cities right from the start.


    King Leonidas of Sparta leads an allied army of Greeks out to protect the mainland:

    Not only can you play as Greeks and the mighty Persian Empire, but in both campaigns you can play as any of the following factions...

    And last, but not least, the Kingdom of Macedonia. This is also a major highlight of the modification, because it is the only faction that can experience a military reform. This allows you to transform the small Macedonian state into a powerhouse, perhaps one that could even challenge the great Persian Empire!

    Reforms occur, transforming the army into a professional military force:

    Good job! I was having fun playing the BETA this week and to my surprise the full version is now out. I've been meaning to ask, what is that neat main menu music that plays in the background?

    There are two that play in the menu, I think. Both of them are from the original game. The first is the music that plays when you win the campaign as an eastern faction (called Arabic Victory), and the second is the eastern campaign intro music (Eastern Intro).

    Ah, figures it would be Jeff Van Dycke. I never finished an eastern campaign that I recall so that's probably why I don't remember. On another note, what the heck happened to the nice main menu background!? It's back to the red silhouette thing from vanilla.

    Oh shart, my mistake - I forgot to add in the readme that you need to also add -nm in the shortcut line.

    Ah, what a relief, I thought maybe you scrapped it as an "improvement". Good work though, and it just got better. Can't wait to start a serious campaign.. might do that tonight actually. Are you still working on the Orcs and Humans mod? And will Narnia be released anytime soon?

    Cool, I look forward to hearing about your campaign.

    I haven't done much with Orcs & Humans lately since I was working with PI and some other projects. Jubal is focusing a little more on Warhammer at the moment, but Narnia will soon follow.

    Hello, im new to the forums but ive been playing mods for a long time now, especially this one i downloaded it a while back but it diddnt seem to be finished. One problem i had which i have found agian is that when you start a greek hegemony campaign you have a faction heir but hes not in the family tree, therefore when my faction leader dies it says i have been wiped out.
    i assume its for every faction because in the beta version factions were being wiped out but they werent at war with anyone.
    Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    More often than not you will be presented with the option to adopt someone into your family, which you should do.
    Thanks for the input though, this and other things will be fixed with a patch before long.

    Looks like a great, original theme RTW mod, excellent map. I am downloading now and definitely will find time to go to battles. Until then a cookie for the responsible one.

    What is that of a wounded soldier sitting? If a soldier is not killed he will sit in the ground and "surrender"? That looks pretty cool ^_^ And it has blood effects? Damn, I need to clear some Hard Drive on my PC to reinstall RTW and get this mod!

    Why won't this mod and the "Rise of Persia" team join together? Even though the eras are different (not too far apart though) Imagine the epicness. Meh, I can dream I guess.


    -My ultimate Total War gaming dream is that eventually TW mods will cover every important era from 1800 B.C. to 1870 A.D.

    That shot was a bit of camera trickery on my part, turned out pretty cool though. Also the blood effects were added later.

    Because there are a lot of them.
