Hello b0Gia Seleukido,
I am plugging away at this.
No ETA yet though. But shall post news here.
Resef has stopped work on CATW.
So I am now working alone on a mod based on the map.
I call it ALK (A Large Kosmos)
Current status is...
"playable but not complete"
I have not uploaded it and shall not unless I get lots of interest.
Prior to joining up with Resef/CATW I was working alone.
The mod was for my personal pleasure, I did not intend public release.
The linkup with Resef/CATW meant my map could be used, but compromises on factions and units were necessary.
Now I am alone again I am using my factions and units, which are still under development.
I have done some refinements to the provinces.
And working on some faction refinement.
Eventually I hope to be able to adapt or use the CATW units.
But for now it is mostly vanilla units, adapted and given new values.
I am also mulling converting the whole mod to Alex2.
With the capability to outdo Alexander by conquering all of India and all of the west.
I am also mulling asking for help with it on this forum.
Anyway, the current version is mod-foldered, 3GB, and runs off the rtw_alex.exe.
It uses lots of 'placeholder' graphics so parts are not pretty.
But I have prioritized as follows;
Essentially yes but that hides some complexity.
Resef has stopped work on CATW and is gonna work on EB2.
I have continued work on my own mod which uses the map. And will probably also join Resef on EB2.
My mod is at a crossroads.
I am contemplating 3 things for it.
1. Switching the base to MTW2
2. Switching it to the period of Alexander. ie 335bc not 275bc
3. Increasing the map coverage.
I now think I can do this without losing geographic detail in the west.
The problem as always is the 199 region limit. But I now have some ideas to handle that.
But they would work best if it was based on MTW2 not RTW-Alex.
FYI the map has seen some minor changes, mostly in regions.
A map is never finished! :-)
An Alexander mod based on MTW2 going from Ireland to China to Sumatra to East-Africa is looking most likely now.
I may start building it on RTW-Alex with which I am familiar.
Rather than trying to port and build simultaneously.
And I shall likely need help with units for China.
If I was gonna do Philip II would probably reduce map coverage area to allow more space for Greece.
It is released here already.
