    Default Lanjane's Barbarian Empires

    Hello TWCenter!

    I'm happy to announce the upcoming release for my mod for Rome-Total War Alexander, called Barbarian Empires.

    It's a modfoldered standalone mod fully translated to English.This mod has a long history, starting as a mere submod for popular russian mod Macedon Expansion back in 2011. For long enough, it was my personal "home mod" which I polished and improved for myself, but finally I decided to share it with the community of TWC.

    It's main focus was to expand vanilla game, add richer details and custom content while keeping original design and art style, like if CA suddenly released a free-LC. As my skill on making unit cards gradually improved, I updated almost all units even including vanilla ones, as well as added a lot of vanilla-compatible campaigns and maps.
    All factions unit rosters were spiced up with new late-game units, and battlemap balance was tuned to a degree for smooth and enjoyable gameplay.

    Main features of the mod include:

    • 13 campaigns with different setups and presets, from popular ones like MM, Europa270BC, RTG and RTWE to rare regional ones like Britannia, Sicilia and my own Hannibal campaign
    • 60 historical battles from different sources, mostly edited by me and adjusted with new units of the mod
    • more than 450 units with lots of regional and auxiliary troops
    • more than 1000 new skins and more than 100 new unit models in addition to vanilla game
    • hundreds of handicrafted unit cards in polished vanilla style, examples here: http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...Rome-Total-War
    • BI buildings for campaign and battlemap, as well as new stratmap buildings including some from RTRProject
    • new stratmap settlement models
    • RSII environment for battlefields
    • new custom ancillaries
    • and more!

    Real awesome! I'm also intrigued to see what changes will be made as the mod progresses, especially concerning CAI and generally making the game harder than vanilla. I'm also not a fan of CA's Roman skins, I hope those get replaced. Either way, the presence of multiple mini-campaigns makes me quiver with joy.

    Hi panther123!
    Not sure as this version is pretty much polished and unit limit is almost reached.
