    Which mod has the most focus of the map on Greece... specifically the Peloponnese. I'm looking for a mod with numerous cities in the Peloponnese not just like two. Any in mind??? Are there any with like 5 or 6

    Roma Surrectum has about 6 or 7 cities in Greece, but it does way more than just that....

    Yeah I already worked through RoP lol... I'm pretty sure I'm gonna try out RS but I was just making sure there weren't any other mods out there with a big focus on the Greek Peninsula in the map and as I said before the Peloponnese. Not focused on the Greeks themselves neccesarily. So RS has 6 or 7??? How many in the Peloponnese???

    6 I think. Argos, Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Olympia and Messene. If you also count Delphi, then 7.

    ok so i first started playing EB, and i loved it, but the ctds and long loads got tiring ( haven't tried 1.1 yet) and im playing rs 1.5,
    can i get some suggestions on which one to play
    i'm NOT a roman player, and thats what makes rs a bit boring, because it feels like the romans are the only people with a good roster of different units.
    neways i just want to know what you guys think is better based on-
    game play
    realism
    fun!
    and skins
    Thanks for the help

    RS has got plenty of different units. Look at it this way, I shall just explain from the Greeks point of view:
    In Vanilla, the only type of city hoplite you had was Spartans.
    In RS, there are Athenian, Spartan, Corinthian, Cretan, Pergamian, Rhodian, Tarentum, Sicilian and Syracusan hoplites.
    In Vanilla, they only had Greek medium cavalry and militia cavalry.
    In RS, they now have Companions as well.

    No, RS is very much wide ranged, though it is called Roma Surrectum. It makes all the other factions better as well, not just Rome.

    RS does improve all factions, the problem I find is most of the Greek cultured factions, excepting the Bosphorans and the Seleucids, have an extremely boring, uniform roster. Its better than vanilla's, obvously, but doesn't compare to some other mods Greeks.

    Most have one phalanx capable unit (named hoplite, wrong), and some actual hoplites, a jav cav unit, and then 3 melee cav units (medium, heavy, and companions). Some also have 1 unique unit or two like Pergamum Heavy Infantry, or Syracusian Marines. There's just not wnough variety, although the city hoplites do help, if just a bit (they're all essentally the same). The only other variety of Greek roster is a few phalanx capable units and no hoplites other than city and militia, the opposite of the other Greek roster. I love the mod, but I can't bring myself to play Macedon, GCS, Pergamum, Epirus and Syracuse because of this.

    If you want Greek depth and closer to vanilla, go XGM. RS has an amzing Roman faction, plus anything not Greek (eastern, barbarians) is great too.

    I might have to try xgm then, i like all the city hoplites in rs, but theres no way i can retrain them when i move them more than 3-4 citys away

    Play one of the unique Greek factions -- you'll be able to recruit city-specific hoplite units from across the Greek world. The Bosporan Kingdom, Syracuse and Pergamon each have totally unique campaigns...

    But XGM is also excellent. The map is a much smaller scale, but the unit rosters are top-notch for the Greeks.

    Ugh, the old vanilla city models. So ugly when compared to the Promotheus ones....

    Hi,

    Which mod has the best battle AI for RTW? I look for tough and exciting battles, where the AI does not cheat and does not fight like a zombie. I am not so interested in skins and graphics and such, perhaps some map improvements and unit balance tweaking. Also, the campaign theme doesn't matter, it can be a total conversion for whatever era. But first of all, the battle AI: which mod has the best?
