    Default Released! End of Days. (Download here)


    Halie Satanus and Makanyane
    are proud to announce the release of
    End of Days
    A modification for BI 1.6

    Chronicling the rise of the Satanic nation of Magog, End of Days will transport you into an alternative history of darkness and evil. There are seven playable factions including; the Kingdom of Albion, the Nation of Islam, Francia, Germanicae, the Shambhala (Buddhist warrior monks), Hispania and the Satanae. The action starts in 666ad as the Dark Lords begin to gather their forces to bring darkness to the world and pave the way for the Anti-Christ.




    End of Days is a full conversion mod for BI 1.6 contained within its own mod-folder - so vanilla BI and any other mod-folder only mods remain playable.

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

    The eight main factions, pagan rebels and mercenaries all have complete sets of new units and all units have sprites. Graphical interface, map and texts are re-worked to give you an altogether 'darker' feel!.



    The campaign map is loosely based on vanilla but has extra territories at strategic points and an extension to the east to provide a base for the Shambhala. Their are five religions, Christianity, Islam, Satanic, Buddhist & Pagan; the AI now automatically converts captured settlements to the correct religion for the occupying faction
    (and so do you, so prepare for a little religious unrest!).

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

    There are almost no rebel ships so factions have much more freedom to attack by sea, this means we can almost guarantee that you will have full stack enemies landing on your shores!. From experience during play testing the mod we have found that with the reduced number of factions the AI performs much better than in vanilla games. Expect the unexpected!!.




    *************************************
    DOWNLOAD LINKS
    Now available from The Mod Database.
    Version 1.01
    Version 1.01 on Megaupload:
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PWBC4K76

    End of Days v1.0
    FileFront
    New DL link at filemonster

    Patch v1.01: (patch is not included in v1.0 download) see here for details
    FileFront
    Patch on filemonster

    See also this post for attached file to give sprites for rebel factions - NB: this is non-critical and optional addition, will be included in future patch.


    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS, SUMMARY: (please also read the EOD READ ME.txt in download)

    Modification must be installed over an unmodified copy of the Rome - Total War, Barbarian Invasion expansion patched to version 1.6. Please see additional instructions here if you already have another mod-folder mod installed.

    TO INSTALL: You MUST make a COPY of the entire BI folder within the Rome - Total War directory, do this using the copy and paste commands, so you end up with a folder named 'bi' and a folder named 'Copy of bi'

    Re-name the folder called 'Copy of bi' to 'eod' (without the quotation marks)
    Drag the eod folder into the bi folder so the file path to it is now:
    Rome - Total War/bi/eod

    Launch the installer and browse to direct it to the Rome - Total War directory where you have just carried out these operations. Path in installer should look like:
    C:\program files\activision\Rome - Total War
    or your equivalent (do not include \bi in the file path), run installer.

    Download the file for patch v1.01 and launch installer for that, install to same directory you used above.

    To play game make new shortcut to BI.exe and add space-mod:bi/eod space-show_err to the target line, so your target line looks similar to:
    "C:\program files\activision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-BI.exe" -mod:bi/eod -show_err

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

    PLAYING INSTRUCTIONS:

    IT'S MEANT TO BE EASY AT THE BEGINNING !!!

    Please do not be put off and think game will remain easy - it won't. Factions are initially widely spaced and the rebels relatively docile, this allows the player some years of expansion before the large battles commence. Use this time wisely to enhance your economy and military might, you'll need both later.

    Recommended settings for game are difficulty levels of 'Possessed' for both campaign and battle settings, unless you're feeling brave and fancy 'Pandemonium' - also use large unit size (set in video options - advanced)

    Ha, atm. i'm testing out every new mod i can get notice of and whenever i have a bit time, and yours seems as well a nice unique idea .

    Have downloaded from upload.to, and it performs good in my case, and i didn't know this server before, good thing.
    Btw., Filefront performs not at all for me, as well in our new 0.90 Chiv-download, it works only for a few quite good, it seems, at this time with new mod-uploads it has significant problems (all my older uploaded files there on Filefront perform a very good download though, must be the frequence on the new link(s) :hmmm: ) .

    Shouldn't be the next step of development a unique fantasy map? Maybe the idea of a parallel world of the timeframe you focus on? Just with the traces of the historical reality you have put in already with your world of a fantasy-early-medieval-darkness, what you've provided, but just a bit more expression with the map as well as basement for the actual campaign-design? Well, only my 2 cents without playing as yet ... see forward to this project.

    That site does seem to be pretty good.

    Well Makanyane is moving on to a home project and I'm taking a long break from modding, (i think), so no plans for at least a few months, then if the mod is doing well maybe we'll talk about taking it in another direction, Hmm maybe Vampyres vs FATW elves!! Or maybe just some kind of Vampyre total war.. Who knows....

    Downloading now. Looks magnificent. I give it A+ on appearance and presentation
    If someone told me to write a book on morality, it would have a hundred pages and ninety-nine of them would be blank. On the last page I would write, "I recognize only one duty and that is to love." And as far as everything else is concerned, I say no.

    Just in time. I was trying to decide today what mod to reinstall as I just finished a short campaign on RTR. Now I don't need to play something over. I can play something that may be a one of the greatest inovations in the total war community. Hope you don't prove me wrong on the last statement. I have been waiting a long time with the rest of twc for this release. THANKS for all your hard work Halie Satanus, Makanyane and the rest of your crew for keeping RTW alive.
