    In \data\text\ - you need to delete the corresponding .strings.bin file to get the game to regenerate the text afterwards.

    You can disable all that unit info text in the eb2.cfg (?) file. Put "show_tooltips = 0". I do play without unit info, green arrows and banners, it looks confusing at first but great after you get used to it.

    The equilibrium is definitely shifted in favour of those you term traditional naval factions. With good reason, they maintained large fleets of warships at great expense to create their dominance of the Mediterranean, which is the primary naval theatre in the game. Pirates were never more than a nuisance against proper fleets, it was only when those fleets were disrupted by the activities of the Romans against their sponsors that piracy spiralled out of control.

    Not all shipbuilding is created equal, nor is every faction able to get the same value from it. The advantage of a Pontomora fleet is that they are relatively cheap and easily acquired, there is no universal formula that means every fleet type is of equal cost:power.
    Like I said before, I welcome the change brought by this new dynamic since in previous versions the pirate ships could do some serious damage do to the auto-resolve mechanics.

    In terms of the pontomora fleet, formula or no formula, hard to believe that 25 ships have almost the same upkeep than 100 "Raiding ships", but I have faith in the process.

    That's by design - pirates should be dangerous in numbers only - and sometimes large stacks of them do spawn. Raiding Fleets should be up to the task of dispersing them.

    We don't really have a formula for fleets like we do for the land units, or even a shorthand like the "upkeep = 3/16th recruitment" rule.

    Some players that have played the new ver, where do you feel like is the most change in the gameplay or feel to the mod?

    My main concern about the fleets is that it may be more cost/effective to use many raiding fleets together than build the more expensive ones, that's me through my campaign and doing some calculations (price and upkeep/attack and defense). I think an idea could be to make raiding fleets more maneouvrable (more movement points?), war fleets the most cost/effective and royal fleets the most powerful.

    Unfortunately, there aren't many toggles you can apply with fleets. They all have the same number of movement points, carrying capacity and so on.

    Fielding only Raiding Fleets (and Liburnes Fleets) is exactly what most powers did as Roman naval influence (or rather the vaccuum they created by defeating all the great maritime powers on land) grew. By the time Rome conquered Greece in the last 2nd century BC, trieres and liburnoi were the most common types of warship.

    War Fleets and especially Royal Fleets are incredibly powerful, will dominate any other types in their locality. The latter were more a statement of ostentation and grandeur, than a practical application of military power. Thus the race to build super-galleys, culminating in the totally impractical "thirty" which never left the Nile. However they were also incredibly expensive, and Raiding Fleets would put down pirates just as effectively (in reality, they were even better at it than fleets comprising larger vessels).

    War Fleets are the most cost-effective if you have real naval conflict. They will do a lot of damage to Raiding Fleets they encounter, so if the faction you are warring with has them, you can't just swarm them with Raiding Fleets.

    Works partially - one can still guess morale and stamina levels by looking at the smiley face and heart symbol. I will just have to discipline myself to not look.
    I recommend a pugio rather than a spear, because in close quarters combat, a dagger will serve you better than a spear.

    I also play without unit info, banners and green arrows. I managed to disable the banners and green arrows, but the option for disabling the unit info isn't there... I swear it was there in 2.3...

    You have to add it yourself like in the link I mentioned.

    I managed to do it by turning it off in the main medieval 2 preference file... weird... I always did those modifications in the individual mod preference files.
    Anyways, it worked - thanks!

    Looks like FM's who are in a battle don't get credit for participating (they stay "Green" even after being in a few battles) - this was working in 2.3. Can anyone else confirm that it's broken? Or maybe it's just auto-resolve battles don't count?

    EDIT: Maybe I was wrong. I did have my FM get the "Blooded" trait after commanding a battle that I didn't autoresolve.

    They should get AuxiliaryGeneral levels, but I don't know if autoresolve will trigger it.

    The turns are much faster, economy seems better balanced, there are a lot of interesting new traits around and battles look a bit harder (through that's probably just an impression).

    I'm enjoying that fact prec has returned and the Celts can finally take advantage of their high charge atks.

    As the Boii though, should I really accept Felsina's request for aid?

    Aside from your army being possibly small, hoe do you even get to Felsina in time?

    I'm glad the turns are apparently faster - there's been a huge amount of effort put into optimising the script to that effect.
