    2022 PREVIEWS
    It has been a while since I last posted updates here on the state of development, but don't worry, the mod is still being worked on and I can share some previews on what will come on the first major update in 2022

    AITOLIAN LEAGUE

    If you are fan of the Aitolian League, then you have reasons to be excited. The unit roster of the Aitolian League will be updated. The Pikemen will be removed, however 3 new units will join the ranks of the League! Elite Aitolian Cavalry (melee Cav), Thureophoroi Guard (Spear Inf) and Aitolian Swordsmen (Melee Inf). Note that the Thureophoroi Guard and the Aitolian Swordsmen will be available after the Thureos Reform, which the Aitolian League will be able to research faster!

    Additionally, the Aitolians will receive a new, faction-unique monument chain, commemorating their historical victory over the invading Gauls.

    NEW MECHANIC FOR THE CONTENDERS

    The "Big 4", aka Demetrios, Pyrrhos, Lysimachos and Ptolemaios will get a new mechanic in the next update. It will allow them to move their capital to Pella if they manage to capture it.

    REWORKED CAMPAIGN MAP

    In the default Wrath of Sparta map, some province layouts make no sense. Why is Andros a part of Euboia? Or why do you need to control the island of Melos to get the full control over Argolis? The next update will rework the province layouts, making them more historical and more reasonable from a geographic point of view. This will also allow cities like Andros and Lysimacheia get their historic walls on the campaign map!

    RHODOS

    Rhodos is set to join the playable factions list in Demetrios Poliorketes! Rhodos will wield a strong and powerful navy, including fire ships! Rhodos will also have access to a little unique event, celebrating Rhodos' patron, Helios.

    That is all for this preview, make sure to leave feedback/suggestions either in the comments here, or on the discord server!

    The Winter Update for Demetrios will be released (hopefully) in the coming weeks, and now I am able to share some details with you

    CENTRAL GREECE

    In order to make Central Greece more accurate and detailed, two new factions will be introduced on the campaign map, the Phokians and the Opountian Lokrians. Additionally, a handful new emerging factions will be introduced: Ozolian Lokris spawning at Naupaktos, the Maleians, spawning at Lamia, Pherai spawning at Pherai and Andros spawning at, well Andros

    ATHENIAN ELECTIONS


    Athens will get a significant new mechanic in the next update. Every year elections will be held which can starkly shake up the influence in the Assembly, as well as give nationwide effects regarding corruption, public order etc. In order to win, there will be a series of events where you must invest in your faction in order to try to win. The elections will have 5 different outcomes, depending on what choices you made.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 






    Furthermore, while still allied with Demetrios (being a vassal mechanically counts as being an ally) or while not having researched a new technology, an additional event will generate, representing the Macedonian Opposition, stirring up some trouble

    SPARTA

    Sparta will also receive some attention in the next update. Included are a new government effect bundle to represent the Diarchy that Sparta had, as well as a new event, the Festivals of Karneia. The festivals of Karneia were celebrated in honour of Apollon. During these festivals, the Spartans ceased military operations, which will also be represented in the mod. Your armies will get immobilized for 2 turns after the event generates, which will do every August

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 





    Not to be done with unique events, Demetrios will receive one of his own; the Demetrieian Games. Historically they were held in the Nesiotic League (as well as in Euboia) in his honour. When you play as Demetrios and you are allied with the Nesiotic League this unique event will generate.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 




    FURTHER CHANGES

    The Aitolians will also get two unique events to represent the two Assemblies they held each year, the Thermika and the Panaitolika. The Thermika will be focused on civil/politics while the Panaitolika will focus on military matters, as historically the Panaitolika were arranged in such a way as to coincide with the raising of the army after winter. Also a civil war faction will be added for the Aitolians.

    Philetairos' betrayal will be a new mechanic for Pergamon in the next update. So when you play as Philetairos and betray Lysimachos, Lysimachos will not sit idle but instead dispatch troops to quickly retake Pergamon, so be prepared for a fight over the treasury!

    That's all for this content dump regarding the development of Demetrios Poliorketes, make sure to leave your feedback and if you want, join the Discord for more communcation and insight!
