  1. Parthian Women Unit Mod Version 1 (Two New Units, Skins, and Cards)

    Hello All

    I have just completed a new mod that adds two female units to the Parthian roster for Total War: Rome 2. They are available for the main campaign and custom battles, and also appear in...
  2. The ByzantineBasileus Unit Mod (New units, Skins, Unit Cards!)

    I have just updated the ByzantineBasileus Unit Mod to Version 5!

    What it does is add 4 new units to Parthia, 4 to Pontus, 4 to Armenia, 3 to Galatia and 3 to Carthage. Most are reasonably accurate...
  3. You want Mods? I have Mods! Whole lotsa mods!

    So I have been quite busy releasing mods one after the other, so I thought a thread for them all would be a good idea.

    First of all, my old Parthian Unit Mod has been heavily altered, and is now...
  4. Re: Parthian (and Armenian) Unit Mod - Version 7 (New units, updated skins, modified unit cards and stats, additional units for Armenia)

    New update!
  5. Re: A few word about the Byzantine Empire

    Yup, it was the unusual nature of the name that first sparked my interest!
  6. Re: Ethnic identity of the 6th century Bulgars: Iranian or Turkic?

    Apparently the majority of the inhabitants are indigenous, meaning the people who are there are the direct genetic ancestors of the people who have always lived in the area. Only 13% or so of people...
  7. Re: Germanocentrism in Attila Total War

    Well, Lithuanian preserves a lot of terms that have counter-parts in others, so it is less Indo-European and more a remnant of Proto-Indo-European.
  8. Re: Germanocentrism in Attila Total War

    Slavic has been categorized as part of its own language family separate from Indo-Iranian, but it is interesting to not that Lithuanian apparently preserved a lot of Indo-European expressions:

  9. Re: Good sources for armies from late-Tang early-Song, Goryeo, and pre-Gempei Japan

    I have read three of those titles, save for Farris, and can say that they are good quality texts about the subject matter.

    I can also support the mention of the Osprey titles, as they are good...
  10. Re: Good sources for armies from late-Tang early-Song, Goryeo, and pre-Gempei Japan

    I have read three of those titles, save for Farris, and can emphasize they are good quality.

    I can also support the mention of the Osprey titles, as they are good visual sources.

    For Korea,...
  11. Re: A few word about the Byzantine Empire

    www.google.com

    I agree with you, but I grew up with the term Byzantium. The word "Byzantine" actually got me studying that civilization and was thus partly responsible for me completing an Honours...
  12. Re: A few word about the Byzantine Empire

    When looking at identity, there are two things to examine:

    What the population considers themselves

    Is there any connection between that population and earlier cultures.

    For example, can we...
  13. Re: Germanocentrism in Attila Total War

    This is actually one of the reasons I have no interest in Attila right now. In Rome 2 you have Greek factions, but also Iberian, Celtic, Eastern, Carthaginian, Nomadic. There were different cultures,...
  14. Re: Parthian Unit Mod - NEW Version 3

    Once I get my post-count up I will be able to edit my posts. Once that happens I will format and add screenshots. Until then you can see the units on my steam-page. Thank you for the advice!
  15. Re: The Achaemenid Warriors In Greece (WIP)

    Do you think the takabara was a fairly light skirmishing shield? Because based on the carvings from the Sarcophagus, the fact that they are mixing it up in battle indicates a more solid, wooden...
  16. Re: Parthian Unit Mod - NEW Version 3

    Holy Crap, I made the front page! Thank you!
  17. Re: The Kardakes infantry of Late Achaemenid Persia

    Holy crap, I never thought of that!

    The British Archer Mod

    Hello Everyone!

    I have just finished my second mod. It adds three bow units to the Iceni roster. Here is the description:

    Briton Bowmen: This unit is a copy of Celtic Bowmen, and is identical...
  19. Re: The Kardakes infantry of Late Achaemenid Persia

    It is worth noting that large wicker shields remained in use in the Middle-East for centuries after the Achaemenids. They found specimens dating to the Sassanian period at Dura Europos. The longevity...
  20. Re: The Achaemenid Warriors In Greece (WIP)

    Dude, absolutely awesome! Have you read Shadows in the Desert by Kavaeh Farrokh?

    Darius III, I think by the time of the Peloponesian War the Persians had stopped using Sparabara. There are no...

    No AI armies in Custom Battle

    Hello

    I just downloaded DEI and I was intending to get used to the new battle mechanics by engaging in a few custom battles, however the AI is not selecting any armies. Is this a bug, and can it...

    Sticky: Re: Feedback/critiques thread

    Hello there.

    I think you got the Takabara perfect in terms of their use of shield and bow, but there are some inconsistencies and historical inaccuracies:

    The unit is too cheap considering how...
  24. Re: [Release] Sebidee's Pontic Roster Expansion

    Hello, I just thought I would give some feedback about this mod.

    Cappadocian Noble Cavalry has the same armour statistic as Cappadocian Cavalry, but the Cappadocian Noble Cavalry in the game are...
  25. Re: [Ideas] Roman unit suggestion thread

    One thing I would not change is the range of generals available to Rome. Their sword-infantry is already overpowered to the point where a Evocati Cohort + Hastati army is an automatic "I win" button...
  26. Love your Mods, but a small error I noticed

    Just downloaded all the unit packs, and they rock.

    However, there is one small thing that annoys me:

    You have the Persian Spearmen/Archer unit labelled as Takabara. They were actually called...
