Thread: All capture/victory points removed

  1. #1

    Icon7 All capture/victory points removed

    This little mod removes any and all capture/victory points from the game. Yes, it's true. No matter where you fight it's to death, defeat or victory. I've tried coastal town battles, and major city sieges. Both play out beautifully. The AI even deploys better, and defends better in big city sieges, without having to consider the victory point. It's the file: zw_remove_vp.7z

    Since some wanted capture points untouched, there is a version that just removes victory points and keeps capture points and it is called: zw_remove_vp_keep_cp.7z


    By demand I've made one that should only remove those in open battles, though I can't be 100% sure it doesn't affect some of the others but I am fairly certain it should not. This file is: zw_remove_vp_ob_only.7z


    These files are in 'movie' format, so you just use 7zip to unpack straight to your ..Steam\steamapps\common\Total War Rome II\data\ directory and off you go.

    Anyone may use this in their mod as long as it is here on TWCenter, and of course it would be nice if you made a nod in this direction if you do. This mod is compatible with any other mod that does not alter capture/victory points.

    Have fun, and conquer all!

    Temporary Sendspace link, for those having issues with download. It has all files packed in the same 7zip, only use one. I recommend trying the TWCenter link until it works though, as Sendspace is kind of messy. Anyway, here.

    cool. Could you also make one that only removes the capture points on open battles?

    Why? This one works as it should. At it's just 972 bytes packed so no matter the bandwidth it'll be done in a flash

    nice, next step could be the "capture the flag" in open field
    Edit: same for me, my browser don't seems to recognize the file.

    It's a little iffy which files are just for those, but I can make one that's my best guess. And see if that works. I have only encountered this type of battle one time, so I am not sure how to go hunting for one.

    Can't download, your link carries me to a blank page. Doing "save as" tries to save .gif image. But Besides that It looks as if you put in a lot of work, thanks.

    That's because of the TWCenter server being overloaded, like when you get the 500-error and have to reload the page until it works. I can put a copy on Sendspace, temporarily, as well.

    Interesting. I wonder how this might affect combined land/sea battles.

    edit: it's hard to DL it from here. Perhaps make a mediafire link?

    I've tried six coastal battles, two of them had over one stack coming from the sea and they all landed. Of course, this can be one issue with no capture point but if you back up your own forces with navy you eliminate this as you can take out the AI that doesn't land if that happens.

    I guess you can exploit this if an AI only attack with land based armies, and you just keep a boat out to sea and let the timer run out but those that want to play fairly will land their troops and if you want to cheat there's loads of other ways to do it. This mod is for those that want to slug it out.


    @DramaBell

    Try the temp-link, to Sendspace. I tried all links, and all of them do work. The TWCenter links needs to be tried again and again until they work.

    Thanks! (downloading)

    I don't want to see all these stupid capture/victory points. Thanks to mods improving the Total War: Rome II experience, it would've been a nightmare without some mod support

    Let us know how it goes. Is it compatible with other mods?

    I'm very curious to see how the AI fights without these things. No more suicidal AI-runbyers! Nice!
