    Default [RELEASE] PAX ROMANA - Main Thread & Download



    STEAM LINK


    HForHavoc Playthrough

    The Eras of Rome team is back with our next mod called Pax Romana. This is based off of my original PR mod but this mod is to be far more than my original vision. The mod moves the Roman Empire into its time of crisis. The year is 260 A.D. and the Empire is split, divided by the Gallic Empire of Postumus in the west, the Macrian rebellion under Macrianus and his sons and the semi-autonomous city of Palmyra led by Odaenathus in the East. The frontiers are beset by German, Steppe, and Persian enemies. Rome, having been humiliated in the East by the capture of Valerian by the Persians, must have her vengeance. However, Gallienus is left in a precarious position. You must reverse the fortunes of the waning Empire and return her to her former glory! Roma Victrix!

    Requires parts 1, 2, and 3 to play. The music pack is optional.

    Roman Playable Factions:
    Imperium Romanum (Roman Empire)
    Imperium Galliarum (Gallic Empire)
    Imperium Macrianorum (Macrian Empire)
    Imperium Palmyrenum (Palmyran Empire)

    Eastern Playable Factions:
    Eranshahr (Sassanid Empire)
    Mets Hayk (Armenia)
    Basileion tou Bosporou (Bosporan Kingdom)

    Germanic Playable Factions:
    Marcomanni
    Quadi
    Franci
    Alemanni
    Gothi

    Steppe Playable Factions:
    Iazyges
    Roxolani

    Celtic Playable Faction:
    Picts

    African Playble Faction:
    Imperium Aksum (Empire of Aksum)

    MOD FEATURES:
    -4 turns per year
    -Unit sizes increased, Roman units have increased upkeep to represent to help simulate the inflation of the later Empire
    -Complete sets of new equipment (helmets, shields, etc.) modeled after 3rd century equipment, as well as relevant models from other fantastic mods
    -Many new units for all factions (except Picts at the moment), most based on solid historical knowledge, some based on best interpretation of what is known
    -Roman tech tree reworked in order to better represent the changing Empire, as well as some new tech for Germans and Eastern factions
    -New buildings for the Roman factions (including a historical one), some for the Eastern factions as well.
    -Proper historical figures added (Gallienus, Postumus, Diocletian, etc.)
    -Population mechanic added as well as the People's Trust mod, both relevant issues in the late Empire (i.e. manpower, and loyalty/betrayal factor that plagued later emperors)
    -New music from epic movies to hopefully immerse the player more fully, including Gladiator and the Eagle
    -New menu and loading screen backgrounds, as well as new quotes during loading.
    -Roman garrison system changed, now requiring the player to build garrison forts in order to defend towns without standing armies; normal military buildings no longer provide them; this will simulate the Empire's struggle to defend its frontier
    -Roman army will be able to upgrade from the pre-Diocletian army (legions, auxilia, etc.) to the post-Diocletian army (comitatenses, ripenses, etc.) via tech.
    -changed starting legions to proper ones (II Parthica, V Macedonica, I Minervia, etc) as well as their date of formation (197 AD, 43 BC, and 82 AD respectively).

    I've done my best to recreate the 3rd century accurately. I've had to use a combination of new equipment from various sources so the quality is mismatched at times, along with some vanilla. If anyone sees any glaring inaccuracies with units, please do let me know. I want to create the most historically accurate mod as possible.

    Not compatible with any mods that mod startpos or script.

    Credits:
    Dresden and Ahiga for many models from CRoC as well as their advice and help
    Magnar for his population mod, as well as his advice and help
    Prime for his People's Trust mod
    Heinrich von Preuben for his building ideas and creation
    Andrew for his tireless efforts to create the new units
    Thunderbolt and The_Germans for new shield patterns
    Asterion, Hloeric, and dontfearme22 for helmets
    Noif for his faction banners
    Alaric for armor
    Regnator for his transport mod

    Glad to see you've finally released your mod Emperor Caesar. Proud of you my friend! I'm gonna give it a go right now. By the way I like the fact that you included that soundtrack mod for it, there's quite a few good tracks from The Eagle!

    Hmm... No coop campaign? :\

    Edit: This is odd but it seems to be under Imperator Augustus for Multiplayer Campaign.

    I suppose I haven't touched the multiplayer as of yet but it is based of the Augustus campaign.

    Thanks; no, I don't use Gem, I work on the screens beacuse for me it's like a hobby, but the point here it's that Emperor Caesar has given us the best Roman units ever seen in a TW game!
    The III century Romans had the best looking armours and equipment ever seen in the whole Roman history, and now, finally we can play in the absolute beauty of that tragic and glorious century!
    Actually I don't find the words to explain how much I'm grateful to the author of this gem, but I'm sure Pallas Athena is watching over him and is inspirning his work and protecting his steps!

    Ave ac gratiae, Emperor Caesar Optimus Maximus!

    You are too kind Diocle! It's all out of love for Rome and history though and I hope everyone enjoys the time period as much as I do.

    OMG, SBH Himself!

    Well, I'm playing a coop with Gallienus (what better than a guy named Gallienus, to play a Mod based on Gallienus?), I left him the role of the Valerian's son of course, and I'm impersoning Postumus (for the occasion, I adopted a mindset between Marine Le Pen and De Gaulle, I find it pretty historically accurate for the character and the Gallic political landscape of those years ..), we are both at war with the infamous Macrinus and I don't remember the actual political stance of Palmyra .. meanwhile the Germans are planning a great conspiracy beyond the Rhine river, and the Picts are lurking around the Antonine Wall .. in any case the Mod is simply moving and it's like a dream, I would like very much seeing you, my nobilissimus friend, on board with us, reenacting the dark and glorious years of The Great Crisis.

    This is another pic coming from a battle between a loyalist legionary Vexillatio coming from Sirmium and a riding force of Macrinian (is it right "Macrinian"?) traitors, more or less near Adrianople ..

    How did I not notice this?!?!?!?!
    Downloading now, will provide feedback when it's done
    Also glad I can decide not to do the "Make the Roman Army Lose Again" techs and keep my legions haha

    EDIT: Looking great so far, however I suspect the recruitment system isn't working as intended. I can recruit "Orientalis" and "Occidentalis" units no matter where I am (I assume these are supposed to represent East and West of the Empire) and playing as Imperium Romanum can recruit Palestinian Clubmen in southern France. Their presence there is about 1700 years too early haha

    EDIT the second: I'm also liking the new garrison mechanic, however if possible some settlements, especially those along the frontiers with the barbarians, should have garrison buildings set up and ready to go from the start. This isn't so much for my benefit, but for the AI. It doesn't seem to realize it's large settlements have no one inside, leaving them open to attack. I was able to make significant headway into the Gallic Empire's holdings before I even found forces standing against me at all. Of course, once I did find those forces, they turned out to be exceedingly dangerous. But I was able to more or less steal most of the Rhine frontier from them before they could react. A similar situation occurred in Greece and Thrace, although the Iazyges have made that more difficult, with a general and two units of cav stealing provinces from behind my lines...
    Also, I have thought of a mechanic you could implement. Basically, after you do Diocletian's reforms (if you choose to do so, unlike me haha) it could provide garrison forces to all settlements, representing the Late Roman reorganization of the military placing more emphasis on defensive deployments. Just a thought.

    Some of my favourite quotes:
