    Default CATW 04


    Classical Age Total War v.04


    CATW is back !

    Recently i was taken by a bit of nostalgia as i wanted catw to work properly on steam (catw 1.0 works with the DVD-version).
    Old catw units were asked for, and RTW is now available on tablet/ipad, so in November i embarked on the project of having a "light" version of catw with these old units, based on vanilla RTW, BI and Alex models and catw skins, but with also a fully working campaign on steam.
    So, after some tweaking up and the help of Redfox zeus checker, here it is, an intermediate version of catw, logically called catw04 as it follows catw03, a version never released before !

    This is Mundus Magnus map set up in 280 bc and you can start with any faction (but the former Senate and Scipii, waiting to be converted respectively as the Mauryans and Sabaeans to take advantage of the map).

    And of course you can play the Epirots and Pyrrhus himself freshly arrived in Magna Grecia (Southern Italy) with his mighty army to face Rome and try to rewrite history.

    You can play either with RTW/BI and Alex (readme below)

    Download it from there: http://www.ancient-battles.com/catw/download/catw04.zip

    And merry christmas...

    *****************************************************************************************************************

    CATW 04 (Last edited December 2016)
    Based on the custom-battle only vanilla catw 03 (2007)
    The latter consisted in reskinning all units, renaming these, adding new units based on vanilla RTW, BI and Alex models.


    This is the modfoldered "lightweight catw".
    All skins are small in size like the original game, 3d models are based on vanilla ones and stay simple.
    Music is vanilla
    Vegetation is vanilla
    Ideal to play on a laptop or tablet.


    List of Changes on 04 (from mid-november to early december):
    -Reskin some units
    -New horses
    -New UI (interfaces)
    -New icons
    -New loading screens
    -New unit names
    -New units descriptions, all translated
    -Added about 60 new units
    -Added Mundus Magnus Map

    Changes on Mundus Magnus campaign:
    -Change date to -280 BC
    -Changed all campaign factions descriptions
    -United Roman faction (SPQR) based on Julii
    -Gauls changed to Aedui, one settlement
    -Spain changed to Celtiberians, two settlements
    -Scythians moved to two new locations (Taurica and Scythia), Sarmatians now out
    -Germans changed to Suebi, moved to Scandia alone
    -Add slave army (Gauls), Bolgios in Dardania (North Macedon)
    -New Epirot faction (former brutii)
    -Bigger army in Syracuse
    -More diverse starting rosters for all nations
    -New slave cities are given larger and more diverse armies
    ****************
    Changes on 03/12/2016
    -Added 140 historical battles from december 2013 Patch 1.1.6. May be buggy as EDU/DMB files are from catw 1.0.
    -Added 200+ custom battle locations based on Mundus Magnus


    ==================================================================

    By default: Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Rome Total War Gold\RomeTW.exe" -nm -show_err -mod:catw -movie_cam
    Start in: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Rome Total War Gold"
    3-You can also use the associated icon

    @Antelopev2 Thanks, coders i think. Next step needs to have the Mauryans and Sabaeans playable and give them a true roster (mostly for the Sabaeans, which is quite foggy atm). So researches in the latter field would be welcome.

    Whenever I press for battle it crashes or when I select a campaign. Btw what are those 48 BC campaigns, from which I got also another one CTD.

    I doubt you play catw04 because there is no 48BC campaign
    catw04 is a standalone mod, and has nothing to do with the 2015 2.0 version...
    Indeed the latter is pretty unplayable on steam right now.
    The folder is called catw04. The worst you can have is a KTM with custom battles on Alex.exe but that's it

    Ok you are right! My fault. Congratulation for the mod, as far as I see a great work is done!

    Great news, I've always longed to try out your mod, but it wouldn't run on Steam. But now...

    Thx guys !
    Modding at little dosage, it's mostly coding.
    The goal is to fill catw 04 little by little with catw 2.0 features until the campaigns are fully working on steam and the latest units/features.
    There will be so catw05 and catw06 following that first attempt. All versions are here: http://ancient-battles.com/about-cla...-total-war.php

    Stay tune !

    Thanks nom,
    Yes it's modfoldered. Will not influence any other mods in data.
    I never tested this one with the DVD. Both are so old they are broken (another programmed obsolescence example)
    So you'll tell, but there are no reasons why it won't work.
