    Default RTR Project: Imperial Campaign v0.5 Released!




    Hello and welcome to the newest installment of Rome Total Realism on the RTW engine. Even though we are far from being finished, we thought that we would release our first full version out for you all to have some fresh RTR fun! This version is considered a BETA so a lot will be changed, so do not worry about what is in and what is not in. Just play, and have fun while we continue development. Even though it is a BETA, each function of the game is fully working so it will not feel like most BETAs. We wouldn't release this if it was missing a key component!

    About Us

    The RTR Project is made up of a group of modders and enthusiasts who love Greco-Roman history and also enjoy playing and modding Rome Total War. We are a brand new team, made up of people from around the world with different skills and abilities. We seek the common goal in making the game more historical and realistic. We are growing in number just about every day and our hope is to re-establish a Rome Total Realism community while working on this project. Our hope is that Rome Total Realism developers and players, of past versions and this version can come together and effectively do great things with this mod! Also we hope fans will be able to experience a very in-depth mod in regards to both history and game play.


    Features

    In our first version the player will notice a lot more visual changes to the game than anything. We wanted to get most of the visuals implemented before we went into the game mechanics and started working there. Every unit has been re-skinned, and just about every faction has new faction symbols and banners. There is a new very in depth campaign map with new textures and models giving it life. RS2 Environments combined with custom lighting make each battle feel as if it was real. Every unit has had their stats adjusted realistically to make battles more historical and last longer. Also, you will notice little mini mods that compliment the big features. There are no new units and no new factions in this version but it doesn't feel like it when you are playing due to the map and the way units have been distributed. Do not worry, there will be plenty more to come, this is just the tip of the iceberg. We hope you enjoy it!

    That would just be perfect. Vanilla music it's pretty good, but we need our own touch (your touch, more precisely).

    In RTW we try to unite the Romans. In Rome 2 we try to divide them. What do we really want from them?

    This mod looks promising

    Hm, can you tell us which link you downloaded from and post each step you took to install the mod, that way it will give us a good idea if you either missed something or something happened when the mod was uploaded.

    Did you delete the map.rwm and map_heights.hgt files? Because that's exactly what happens when you don't.
