Thread: STARTPOS.ESF Search

    Default STARTPOS.ESF Search

    Just to say that S2TW editor opens Rome II startpos.esf. It seems that some known modifications work here as well like adding money and such. For PFM see here: http:

    What I've changed so far:

    * Added starting money
    * Unshroud the map
    * Replenish armies/fleets instantly (disasters that decrease armies last for many turns without the ability to react).

    Good to know, we dont have to go back to the hex editing those were the days, ugh. Unfortunately I cant touch Rome2 until 10 hrs from now(Work). Abit surprised they havent created all the subfolders for mods yet.

    The problem is that the menu for copy, paste, delete is not there. Unless if S2TW editor works... differently (never modded S2TW seriously). Anyway I added some cash in my campaign and I revealed the map (through startpos). However unshrouded map last only for one turn and has to be added again (scripting files probably in packs are not accessed at the moment).

    Plague that decrease armies last for many turns without having anything to do about that except waiting (related technologies that will improve buildings take even longer). So I replenished armies by editing a save (startpos).

    Is there a way to change the techs researched on the tech tree either with the startpos
    or a save game file? For example, making the tech tree fully researched at turn 1 for the civ you are playing as? This would be a nice way to play with the later techs/units now without having to hit next turn 100 times.

    Hello, is there a way to edit the Kings Purse in Rome 2? I found this thread super helpful and was wondering if this was possible. Thanks!
