    Re: What more would you want to add to EBII?

    It's possible to some degree via scripts. De Bello Mundi has one.

    Re: Georgian Cavalry in Tsardoms: Total War

    The Georgians were definitely not the best cavalry in the world, probably fairly dismal compared to many of their neighbors. Forget the terrain of Georgia, just consider who they were surrounded by.
  4. Re: Tsardoms Total War - Campaign Feedback, Bugs and Reports

    You can't dock ships in Ragusa. It's possible to go into the military forces screen to remove the ships but you can't bring them into port.

    God is both omniscient and omnipotent. He's not limited in the number of people he can save. We cannot be saved on Earth if that's what you're asking.
  8. Re: Strategic Map Gameplay - compared to SSHIP

    SSHIP needs a lot of work to get to the level of complexity and historicity that EB2 has achieved. Part of it is just a limitation of the timeframe. Aside from the (emergent) Mongols, most factions...
  9. Re: Playing as Romani: How do you handle the massive influx of all those FM in the early game?

    My biggest problem is that I want to houserule using only one general per army and the Imperium system makes that a much riskier strategy. I haven't thought of a good and realistic work-around.
