Thread: Yarkis Field Battles for Minor Settlements Mod (REMOVED!)

  1. #1

    Icon6 Yarkis Field Battles for Minor Settlements Mod (REMOVED!)

    Yarkis Field Battles for Minor Settlements Mod

    REMOVED MOD: With patch 3 beta CA set the percentage chance of a field battle from 0 to 50%. This is a reasonable value, and therefore the mod is no longer needed! It is also no longer compatible with patch 3, and I recommend that you remove it from your data directory! Thank you for choosing my mod and I wish you a nice journey!


    CA already put it in: The option to play field battles instead of siege battles when a minor settlement is attacked. This mod enables this option which hopefully some day will be part of the game options menue of RTW 2. The mod only works with settlements withoutports. Makes sense, otherwise fleets could not take part in the battles.


    CONTENT

    -Every time a minor settlement is attacked there is a chance for a field battle instead of a settlement battle.
    -Comes in 4 flavors: 25, 50, 75, and 100 percent chance of a field battle (use only ONE pack!).

    COMPATIBILITY

    Not compatiple with mods that change campaign_variables_tables.

    INSTALLATION

    Just drop ONE of the packs into your ...\Steam\SteamApps\common\total war rome II\data directory. The pack is a movie files and does not need to be enabled. To deinstall just remove/delete the pack file.

    Very nice. Do these field battles have capture points?

    Using 100% chance, I attack Appolonia as Sparta, still owned by Epirus, and got a settlement battle. There was a garrisoning general if it makes a difference.

    Any other mods installed that change the campaign_variables file?

    I am using your extended battle mod, and Radious Economy and Research mod.

    No idea if that is compatible. Also it could be that the mod only works with non-port towns.

    Weird, why can't the defender CHOOSE whether they want a field battle? That makes the most sense.

    Maybe CA was unsure of how the public would react and after the initial reaction they went with unfortified cities. Which I prefer over fortified and land battles. I dont want a normal land battle when I ATTACK a city.

    Until the AI learns how to defend an unfortified city at least somewhat competently, I'll take the land battle.

    I keep getting my ass kicked in siege battles.

    Nice idea but I agree that it would make more sense for the defender to have the option of a field battle rather than being forced into one

    Agreed. But that will require the AI to make informed decisions, so it will be more difficult to do I think. I will take this for now. Thanks Yarkin.

    I don't which tables Radious has changed. If his mod uses the table stated in my readme, then either my or his changes might not work.

    Much needed! Thank you so much. Unwalled settlement battles are pretty much just siege battles without walls. CA's aim to reduce siege battles kind of failed in this regard. We still have very few field battles.

    Am I only the one who can't make this mod to work? I've tried either 100% one, and 75% and no change.... Do I have to do something else after copy the file in the data folder? Maybe rename it?Please HELP Thanks.B.

    Mmm, ok it works, but only on a NEW campaign...
    It doesn't have effect on a started campaign doesn't it?

    It works perfectly on an ongoing campaign. The reason why it is probably not working for some of you is because it does NOT work on minor COASTAL settlements. It only works with inland settlements.
