    Default Pyrrhic Victory

    Phyrric Victory Mod for RTW1.2 by Epirote.

    Pyrrhic Victory is a mosaic of mods ,skins and files.
    As a base I had my favorite map Mundus Magnus and my favorite mod Extended Greek Mod .
    And I enriched it with lots of new skins form various sources.
    I changed lots of buildings, unique troops, hidden resources, tga, tga.dds, cas........and a lot of other things with my few knowledges.
    All the new material was composed according to my own ideas and historic knowledges.
    I have permission from ngr about the use of Mundus Magnus.
    Also permission of XGM mod by DimeBagHo.
    But some skins I lost track of their authors.
    I hope somehow I get the permission of all skins so I won`t face any copyrights problems and what follows with that.
    If you are one of the authors of the skins, or you know them, please contact me so anyone can enjoy it.

    Last edit.
    Some authors I communicated , gave permission.
    Thanks to Laca about the Numidian Skins.
    Thanks to meh_cd about the Hellenic skins.
    Thanks to webbird for the Gallic skin
    I send the mod for evaluation to TW center but it seems I got it wrong and it was released for download.

    DOWNLOAD HERE

    Feel free to report anything going wrong with game or suggest new ideas.

    Sounds (and looks) cool.

    One question, why is it called "Pyrrhic Victory"?

    It is based on Mundus Magnus so will have a map looking like this.
    Some screenshots to show you Mundus Magnus in case you haven`t played it.

    Yeap you are right.
    English is a language I use only in TW Center.
    And I need someone to correct or write a more proper description for the new units.
    I am a one man team. :laughing:

    I had problems with Thrace while making the mod.
    The correct word is Thracean
    But in RTW it is Thracian
    So there was lot of confusion when I had to work with thracean skins , files....
    In the end I chose the RTW description to make it look more compatible.
    I wasn`t in the mood to change all the original files.
    But I might do it one of this days.
    Ok it is fixed now as Chosen Thracian Falxmen. :sweatingb

    But there are lot of small errors.
    For example some units might look a bit overpowered, or some might be a little expensive,....
    But these errors are a matter of less 1 min to be fixed.

    Could you post a list of the Macedonian units that will be used in this patch/mod?

    I must say that I am seeing units here for the first time!
    Excellent job in putting all together, unfortunately some rivalries between some mods don’t allow to join the best models and skins.

    I have also a private mod, a mod based on RTR 5.4, with a heavy change of the Iberian Peninsula, and of the recruitment system (I have almost reached the limit of models - 250 – and I have already deleted all the peasants (male and female), pigs, dogs, arcani, screeching women, cheat elephants, druids…). The general idea is that all factions can recruit almost all units, but only in regional bases. This means that the Parthians can recruit Numidians in Numidia and Iberians in the Iberian Peninsula.

    But I almost gave up of recognizing some of the authors of the skins, models, cards… probably I will never realise my mod…

    But, like Gaius Drakan I would like to ask you to e-mail me some of this stuff.
    Or, if the file is too big, upload it.

    Just to mention that you also need the Europa Barbarorum team's permission to use the Mundus Magnus map in a mod that you're going to distribute (as opposed to private use) as stipulated here.

    If you have their permission that that's fine.

    The PyrrhicVictory.rar is 16.9mb .
    The skins ,the map ..... are all included in the PyrrhicVictory.rar file.
    You only need RTW1.2 and nothing else.
    But I almost gave up of recognizing some of the authors of the skins, models, cards… probably I will never realise my mod…
    Did you get a negative answer or you didn`t even found them?

    And how do get in touch with them??
    I was told by ngr to send email to Khelvan and I did send him 2 emails.
    But no answer.
    Can you give me a nickname or email of EB Team members?

    How recently did you send the PM? khelvan's been away for the last week or so, I believe.

    In terms of other team members, your best bets on the TWC forums are Wulf (doing the previews), eadingas, Teleklos Archelaou, QwertyMIDX - they're all pretty frequent visitors to the TWC EB forum.
