  1. Re: Please help me understand the state of my campaign (especially Auxilaries, Economy, Intrigue)

    Did you read this short guide for economy development https://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?800656-Province-Management-amp-Economy-Guide? Good advice in my opinion.

    Generally I would not...

    Re: Some suggestions about roman faction

    Proposal No. 3 should possibly not need modelling if an existing barefoot man skin model could be used? Recently I changed the variantmeshdefinitions for some Oscan units, like from Samnites, Lukani...

    Sticky: Re: [Feedback] Questions, Critiques and Requests for 1.2

    That's interesting. I never ever fought on the British Isles in DeI, so never faced such troops. But Scotland (and Ireland) in later (late antiquity and medieval) times weren't especially famous for...

    To answer it myself: I had to separately extract the English loc file and overwrite the normal loc file of ID with it.

    So far so good. However the small number of soldiers in the units (160 on...
  17. Sticky: Re: Total War Saga: TROY announced! (trailer, screens & campaign map video)

    Waiting for more info is a cunning approach, I think. It really depends wether they want to simulate the mixed time reality of the Iliad or 13th/12th c. BC Bronze Age warfare.

    If you could not win with the Romans who have rather good heavy units, wealth and recruitment potential, it would be strange. In Europa Barbarorum and DeI I mostly played as a Hellenic power and it...
