  1. Sticky: Re: Total War Saga: TROY announced! (trailer, screens & campaign map video)

    Thanks, Welsh. A kind person told me that I was mistaken, Mr Katsikes is an illustrator rather than a modder. Even so, I think the point remains.

    Re: Is there anything left of The Left?

    I answered this point already. Conservatives - and, in this case, a far-right party - sometimes use some socialist policities when they're popular or useful, this doesn't make them socialists....
  3. Sticky: Re: Total War Saga: TROY announced! (trailer, screens & campaign map video)

    I wonder where Mr Katsikes got the idea for his horned armour from. While I understand that people get angry if someone's work has been used without their consent and without credit, I suggest that...

    Re: Is there anything left of The Left?

    It's typical of Communist and fascist regimes to murder socialist opponents - and the Nazis weren't Communists.

    The ethnic nationalism of the NSDAP - their scapegoating of a minority, their 'stab...

    Re: [Submod] Female Generals

    You wrote that women became queens for 'extreme' reasons - I imagine you're right that this happened. As I understand it, Boudicca became queen because her husband died and she had only daughters, to...

    Obviously you've posted this in the StartPos Mods area, so perhaps you prefer playing as minor factions such as Morocco using Empire Total Factions (rather than other mods). You could, as others...

    Re: Is there anything left of The Left?

    We do seem to be at a stage where we've made our arguments, neither of us is convinced by the other's points and we're repeating ourselves.

    Re: Tamriel Belongs to the Nords! (TESTW 2.0)

    Great start! It's cool that you can recruit the Companions in Whiterun, as you said. It sounds satisfying to take rebel strongholds and keep them, rather than having rebels re-spawn (as would happen...

    This sounds like an exciting campaign. I agree that navies are sometimes vital in the older games. Fleets can be useful in Napoleon and Shogun II, because of the ability to get trade...

    Both socialist and conservative parties are normally democratic - it's the extremes who aren't. Adding 'democratic' in front of socialism, but not conservativism, implies that socialism isn't...
