    yeah, I started a campaign too, just to see how it works.
    Seems fine for now, let me know what you think

    Here it is the 99% definitive version of TESTUDO_HUGE_1.5
    It's more playable than previous versions.
    I'll need a couple of days more to do the T/S/M/L packs and quick test them to check values (mostly for culture)

    - it includes a custom PIGS version and RPGu (15 factions playable, load the pack you'll find inside TESTUDO_1.5_pick_faction). It is highly recommended to use RPGu units.
    - strat movement is set to -20 (-30 % compared to DeI). You can change it using one of the packs inside TURTLE_1.5_Parts (recommended: from -25 to -10)
    - use the official 12 tpy mod, TESTUDO_HUGE has quite some values set for 12 tpy
    - don't use any other mod (apart from graphical, UIs, official battle, the one lowering units' rows)
    - better to play it at normal difficulty (hard for battles if you wish)
    - lower taxes during early turns, even remove them if necessary, and disband most of your units, you won't need them and the AI will attack you rarely. Build your economy first and then choose your target (if you're playing Rome, go for Etruria very quickly).

    Great! Keep it up buddy
    What about research times? not sure if you have tweaked them as well.

    Sure, construction, technology, reforms, kittens... it's all set to play a more realistic 12 tpy, same for the AI

    Did you double the vanilla DEI required research points?

    Nothing is simply doubled, I did custom curves, should be something more than doubled but I'm not sure, it's quite some time I did that and just do some little tweaks after tests.

    My funny aim is to do the more complex/micromanaged/slow paced mod ever for a TW game (well, we'll see ofc).
    Road is still long though.
    I think my plans will cover 6/12 months from now (well, if I keep doing this ofc).

    Thanks for the update Jake.
    I have not played for a while, would this be the correct load order?

    @1Testudo 1.5 Rome
    @2Testudo 1.5 Huge
    @3TPY 12
    @Dei pt1
    @Dei pt2
    "don't use any other mod" So no cultural tensio and de ai arbitriis?

    Good job, Jake! I'm really curious about your testudo approach, so I'll definitely give it a try at some point!

    yes, loading order is correct, check @ number into my packs, the more they have the more above they have to be.
    A custom cultural version is already inside.
    De Ai Arbitris has to be updated, it's not compatible with latest dei version as it is. Part of his values are already inside latest DeI.

    TESTUDO 1.5
    IS OUT!


    Since the site is still "down" and won't let you edit posts, I'll put here the packs.
    You'll have to wait for full description until site issue is solved.
    I will upload some other packs to customize other features too.

    - TESTUDO_1.5_ ALREADY CONTAINS CUSTOM VERSIONS OF PIGS AND RPGu
    - DON'T USE ANY OTHER SUBMOD. JUST GRAPHICAL OR KAM'S OFFICIAL'S ONES REGARDING UNIT ROWS

    sorry, forgot to say: play at NORMAL difficulty (at least your first campaign)

    TESTUDO 1.5.1
    IS OUT !



    It seems the site is still having issues and doesn't let you edit big posts like my OP
    I'm uploading 1.5.1 here without descriptions which I'll add when possible

    @@@ DOWNLOAD TESTUDO AND TURTLE_PARTS 1.5.1
    - don't use any other mod besides graphical or battle ones
    - custom PIGS and RPGu alredy included
    - load the standard 12 tpy mod for related packs
    - use one of the "pick your faction packs" (IT'S NECESSARY!), 30 factions to choose from
    - use one of the TURTLE PARTS if you want to change some features (better to wait for a full description, I'll do when site will run fine and let me edit OP)
    - TURTLE PARTS are pack you can use to adapt your T/S/M/L/H main pack with specific T/S/M/L/H features (they should be quite self explanatory by reading the title)
    - Besides Cultural Tensio, Environment and Custom Scripts you can use other TURTLE Packs with DeI

    Well done, Jake!

    It appears to me that all the posts can be edited now, but especially for the bigger ones, it takes much longer to load. Or that's at least how it works for me.
