Thread: Download -Hellenika- version 1.2

  1. #1

    Default Download -Hellenika- version 1.2

    SUMMARY

    Hellenika is a total overhaul of the Wrath of Sparta campaign. It combines stunning and historical visuals with campaign mechanics never seen before. Nearly every aspect of the vanilla game has been redone for both Greeks and Persians with astonishing detail. Thanks to a dedicated team this mod has been created with the purpose to give you an immersive and completely fresh-new gaming experience.


    OUR AIM

    This mod has been created with 2 targets in mind.
    1 ) The absolute devotion to historic authenticity. We did not use any “what if scenarios” or fantasy units and whenever we faced a design dilemma between making the game follow historical facts or being “game play friendly” or “mainstream” we chose the path of history. Every gameplay or visual decision was taken after confirmation in historical textbooks and each one’s personal research .
    2 ) “Force” the player to use his strategic skills and bombard him with dilemmas. In every decision there are pros and cons and hopefully this is an element to increase replay ability.


    WHAT NEW ΤΗΙS MOD BRINGS

    In an overview let us present you some of the mod’s features

    - Authentic unit looks
    - Unique recruitment system
    - Manpower system with actual troop numbers
    - Social system
    - Political system
    - Terrain affecting troops' performance
    - Unique regions
    - Diplomatic overhaul
    - Agents reworked
    - Entirely new technologies for each faction
    - Historical Characters
    - Gods and Omens system
    - Unique edicts
    - Campaign Ai rework
    - Reinforcements system
    - New siege philosophy
    - New hoplitic animations
    - Dozens of scripts simulating the impact of victories and defeats in the course of war

    And many, many more!


    WARNING

    Since this mod is in fact a completely new game you cannot jump right into it and play.If you do, you will simply diminish the enjoyment you could otherwise draw from your campaign. So it is strongly advised to spend few minutes to
    read the manual
    and this short guide
    Not compatible with any other mod. Use only on its own


    We all humbly thank our contributors and helpers

    DOWNLOAD

    IMPORTANT TIP
    To play Hellenika you need to revert to patch 17.

    1) right click on total war game in the library
    2) select properties
    3) go to beta's tab
    4) from the drop down menu choose patch 17
    5) no code needed

    Steam links:
    Part 1
    Part 2
    Part 3
    ALL 3 PARTS NEEDED TO PLAY

    Official Submods
    - Custom Battles Unlock (Remember to de-activate this one when playing a campaign!)
    - Greek music mod (Highly recommended while playing Greeks)
    - A trick to bypass some rare crashes (IMPORTANT read the spoiler below for directions of usage. Also link inside)
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    In Hellenika we have created a system in order Historic characters come into play with their original historic uniforms and equipment and at the exact dates. In order to achieve this we needed to make those characters spawn into certain map coordinates. Unfortunately if those coordinates are occupyied by another agent or force this conflict can cause a crash. These crashes are usually rather rare but if they appear then they may happen during Ai turn and make you unable to proceed with your campaign. If you experience such an issue using this submod will stop those characters from spawning and will allow you to continue your game.
    Since those historic characters increase the immersion factor of the game we advice to use this submod only if at some point you face some sort of crash in Hellenika campaign. Player is adviced that if such a crash happens to enable this submod, pass the turn in which he faced the crash and then again disable it in order to re enable characters from appearing. Alternatively you may keep this submod always on. In this case you will stop every crash from happening but you will loose famous characters like Alkibiadis, Epaminondas, Agisilaos and many other famous Spartan Kings with their original shield emblems and uniforms.

    STEAM LINK
    NON STEAM LINK
    (Non Steam Link may not work properly with internet explorer. Chrome and Modzila work fine till now)

    Non Steam links:
    Part 1 (NEW- Version 1.2)
    Part 2 (NEW) (Vs 1.2)
    TO PLAY YOU NEED ONLY ONE OF TWO TYPES OF PART1 (new OR old) AND PART2


    Patch 20 beta:
    Part 1
    (You should delete the previous part 1 of Hellenika and replace it with this one. Parts 2 and 3 are the same. If you use the steam version, you should deactivate part 1 and download and activate this one instead. Parts 2 and 3 should remain activated. Some bugs exists so, it remains a beta until stated otherwise.)

    CHANGE LOG OF NEWEST VERSION

    - Strengthened the casualties system (now your starting troops pool will be depleted more often, especially in late games ,so plan ahead and develop your reserve troops)
    - increased a bit the stats for Sparta and other elite units like some Boiotian or Athenian
    - considerably nerfed Ai's bonuses to morale because in some cases they were multiplying to very OP numbers
    - Added the Argive truce script. When you are not playing as Argos it will remain neutral until 420 BC as in history (very important for the Spartan campaign)
    - increased the recruitment time of some special units
    - reduced the siege time for some capitals
    - removed the boiling oil ability of gates
    - added the planned expedition for Akarnania when you play as Sparta
    - fixed a small bug in Calias peace

    Congratulations for finally rowing this great polyremes of creativity into port for the whole game polis to behold! You have been out on the uncertain modding seas long enough. Poseidon himself must have aided your steering so that you never got lost.

    Gonna jump right in as soon as there's a non-steam link. I don't have a pirated copy of the game, I just tend to have fewer problems that way.

    Today was a rather big day for us with some micromanagement.. I will try to post those links tomorrow or the day after at least since we need some minor tweakings like add them all into one or 2 files (campaign and graphiCS) instead of the 3 parts we have on steam..
