    Re: [AWARD]Bran Mac Born for Opifex

    What counts as "exceptional" modding work? I've used Bran's AI mods for Empire Total War and I've often recommended them. I'm impressed with the differences he has achieved in AI behaviour on both...

    You're welcome. I don't think I've seen a unit recruitment order mod, so I can't tell you where it is, unfortunately. I hope you'll find it.

    Re: Arverni Rise and found the Kingdom

    This is an interesting start for your Arverni campaign. I was surprised that you sent your army west towards the Vivisci and Volace, rather than east towards the Aedui, as the Arverni start at war...
  7. Re: The best moment/situation when to convert an enemy faction into a satrapy/client state

    Yes, I sometimes do that.

    I agree, that your client state getting into a war with another faction you have treaties with can be a problem. (I believe this is less of a problem with satrapies...

    Grenadier, I'm sorry for not commenting before. This mod simply adjusts the penalty to diplomacy between the player's faction and other factions, when the player acquires regions. I don't know...

    Hi Derc, I don't think you deserve hate and I don't think you want to take away anyone's fun, quite the opposite (I enjoy your brilliant AAR).

  17. Re: Did you ever defend a city succesfully from an enemy army that outnumbered you just with the garrison troops?

    I agree, arrow towers can be really useful when you're defending. Do you find defensive artillery on the walls to be useful? Because of their limited arc of fire, I can usually only hit the enemy...
