    Thanks Dresden
    Sorry to bother you with my problems but I removed Silven's mods and installed the 4TPY version of your overhaul mod but now army and agents movements are back to 100% :/

    Is it normal that I can't edit my posts?

    @Dzib Until you have 25 posts I don't think you can edit. For movement, the starting armies on the first turn might have normal movement for that turn. The starting agents will always have 100% movement, only new agents will have the reduced movement.

    I can work on changing that. The reason is that starting movement is determined in the startpos file and agents check that stat to see their movement if they are there at game start. If they are recruited after, they check the db files.

    Dresden, I think if u set multiple turn unit recruitment than ai wont recruit this unit at all. It was checked by other modders (this dude from dificult ludlum or sth) at patch 3 i think. Unless u found a way to make ai do it. Pehaps u could make big army limit like 50 at start for ur big empires and make AI recruit full stacks. I wonder if that will be an answer for AI retardation in keeping big empires 2gether.

    I haven't had any testers reporting AI not recruiting, but I do understand what you are saying. They may choose to move rather than recruit. I think that they are recruiting properly over time, though. I will have to do some testing to make sure.

    Thank you Dresden for all the hard work you've put into all of your mods. Since I've started using them, I can't imagine playing without them.
    I love all of the changes in your hardcore mod, but I personally dislike the experience increase for generals. I enjoy the gameplay when I'm able to level them up really high during their lifetimes, especially when I'm using TTT (which is also fabulous, thank you!), and I personally feel that Increasing the experience required for them defeats that purpose. If I wanted to change the experience required back to vanilla values for myself, where should I look to do that? Thanks!

    @Crappy Use PFM to open the mod pack. Go to the table db/character_experience_skill_tiers_tables. Change the numbers you see next to general.

    Also, I think if TTT loads first it should override the exp changes.

    Hey Dresden! Thanks for the tip. I found the tables and was able to change the values back

    You mentioned loading TTT first as another possible way of doing things - is it possible to rearrange the load order if I am using the steam workshop? Do I have to go back to Mitch's mod manager if I want to customize the load order?

    Thanks for everything!

    I have heard that the Rome Mod Manager loads in alphabetical order based on the .pack file name. It could be wrong, but if you change the various mod file names to Axx, then that mod should load first.

    Hi,

    Well i'm a noob in modding so i have some noobs questions ...

    1) Does your mod change the startpos ?
    2) Is he compatible with "Ars gratia Artis" ?

  18. #18

    Default Re: Dresden's Hēgemonía Hardcore Overhaul Mod v1.2 (patch 7 beta + Meaningful Resources)

    Yes it changes the startpos.

    I think Ars Gratia Artis also changes the startpos and edits some similar tables. For now it is probably not compatible. However, I may be looking into a way to release a compatible version in the future.

    Hey Dresden, thank you for all the hard work you've put into the Hegemonia overhaul mod. The game has become practically unplayable for me without it. Truly amazing work.

    Apparently there is a conflict between your Hegemonia Hardcore Overhaul Mod and Ars Gratia Artis by Selea (link: http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...ated-15-11-13). I can start up Rome 2 with each mod individually, but the moment I have them both checked in the mod manager, Rome 2 begins to crash on start up. According to Mitch's Mod manager, the only conflicts between the 2 mods are in the starpos.esf, db\land_units_tables\land_units, and db\main_units_tables\main_units.

    Both mods do great things for Rome 2, and I know there are other people experiencing similar issues with incompatibilities between these 2 mods. (Angus young for example, above me, I'm betting) I'd greatly appreciate it if you could somehow communicate with each other and create a version that was compatible between the two.

    Between this mod, and TTT, you've truly changed how I play Rome 2 for the better. Thanks for all the hard work, and I hope that it's somehow possible to make these 2 mods compatible with relatively little difficulty!

    Oh, haha! I didn't see you respond while I was writing that. I'm glad to see you are already thinking about doing a compatible version. Many thanks, and it would be greatly appreciated!
