  1. Re: What game engine could support a mod of this grandeur!?

    I think the next stop should be either M&B2 (though that'd be quite a change in the mod) or one of Paradox games, for example Crusader Kings 2. Depending on the amount of people able to do models and...

    Baktria makes for a really fun long campaign, with the distances involved and lack of ability to reinforce through fleet you really get delayed a lot. Everything is more strategic than with Greeks...

    Re: How do you manage the Cursus Honorum?

    It's not difficult at all. It's too annoying and bothersome. Especially now that you've removed the Rome's fort and young FMs must idle in the wild for endless turns and no reason whatsoever. You...

    Re: How do you manage the Cursus Honorum?

    I don't. I avoid playing Romans ever since this horribly designed micro-management heavy trait system was added to cripple their gameplay.

  7. Re: Iran is too flat - where are the Zagros mountains?

    It's an ancient game with a lot of core issues that were never addressed by the studio, they never patched it, as at the time they were busy making the massive flop and the worst game in their...
  8. Re: Iran is too flat - where are the Zagros mountains?

    I rest my case too. I play EB2 instead of BC or TA because here I have normal battlefields.
  9. Re: Iran is too flat - where are the Zagros mountains?

    It doesn't need anything. Battles are unplayable with high slopes (unless you enjoy exploiting AI charging up an 80 degree slope?), so the topography should be seriously toned down and kept as flat...

    It screws up the kind of blitz I do early on, that allows me to turtle afterwards until Romans and Ptolemies grow up to become a challenge.

    Turning Pergamon into Moria sorta screws up any KH campaign too, as they can no longer reform their government, being unable to take that third polis.
