    Default [The Elder Scrolls - Unofficial Patch 1.42] The Great War II - NEW FOURTH ERA MAP!

    The Great War II



    We will be using my newest Unofficial Patch 1.42.
    A small DLC, including Fourth Era map from TES TW 2.0 is needed to donwload as well

    DLC Installation:
    - 0) Install TES Unofficial Patch 1.42 via this simple
    FULL LINK. Only extract into your /steamapps/Medieval II Total War/mods.
    - 1) You can download Fourth Era Map DLC through this link. Extract it into your /steamapps/Medieval II Total War/mods/The_Elder_Scrolls. It will ask you to overwrite, hit yes. If it doesnt, you are extracting it into a wrong folder

    Check out
    The Elder Scrolls Hotseat Guide!



    Important information for those playing in other older TES Hotseats
    (such as Rise of The Queen or Black Drake, etc)
    - Irrelevant for those playing only in this hotseat or The Great War II

    Unfortunately, it turns out that this hotseat (and The Great War II) is not save compatible with the older hotseats. However, I have an easy solution for that.
    - Download the
    Original map.
    - Put both "Original map" and "Fourth Era DLC" into your /mods/The_Elder_Scrolls.
    - Each time you will need to switch the files, just right click on one of the two files, then click on 7-zip and choose unpack/extract here. Again, it will ask you to overwrite

    Alternatively, if you dont like this, you can just have two permanent big TES folder, one with the old map, and one with the new map, and just switch the names of the folder. "The_Elder_Scrolls" must always be called that folder, that you want to be using in the moment

    The Rules
    - Time limits will be strictly followed.
    - Time to play your turn is 24h. The Admin may ocasionally grant a 24h extension ONLY if you ask for it. If you dont, and are late without any communcation, you will be skipped. You will get a sub only if you there is some communication between the admin and you before you are late, you can also appoint a subber. If you are skipped, you can still play before the next player in turn plays his turn. However, time limit for him starts in the point you get skipped.

    - No exploits/bugs allowed.
    Posting defeats, making walls of units on map to disallow enemy agents to move and stomping/killing agents with units, surrounding armies/navies to deny retreat, intentionally spreading a plague with agents/units, stepping on a merchant to remove him from a trade resource, exploiting AI factions ( for example demanding/accepting money or settlements from AI factions), and more.
    - Suiciding your faction is not allowed, and may result into your removal from the HS.

    - List of known bugs:

    1) The naval fort bug: No using ships to bypass a fort's or a settlement's Zone of Control.

    2) Ambush fort bug: No luring men in ambush position into ZoC of forts\settlement's as such robbing them of their movement points.

    3) Siege reinforcement bug: when the army is adjacent to a fort or a settlements that has been put under siege it cannot reinforce armies adjacent to him which he should have been able to reinforce on normal occasions. Attacking an army which the siege reinforcements bug applies to is not allowed
    Navy inside ports attacked bug: no using this bug to attack ships which are inside ports.

    4) Yoyo armies\forts bug: no attacking an army which the bug has been used on multiple times. You can see when this bug occurs, as the enemy army enters the fort and then leaves it.

    5) Attacking ships inside the port - Attacking ships that are inside ports is not allowed.

    6) Recruitment pool fill up - Quing up units in the recruitment sloots to increase artifically units/agents maximum number you can recruit in one settlement.

    - Armies that are defeated in battle by a player that comes after them in the turn list may not move the following turn. This is to make it fair for people who are defeated by players that come before them in the turn list.Armies standing in a settlement when defeated are excluded from this rule.
    Heroic victories against players are not be allowed. However, occasionally it happens player cant get any other type of victory then heroic victory. In such cases heroic victories may be allowed, but only if the odds are higher for the attacker than 1:1.

    I'll take Daggerfall or the Mede Empire if no one more "experienced" wants to play it.

    Feels like I should join this one as one of the winners of the first TGW but being forced onto a side is never really my thing haha, will have to think about it.

    Is there a reason Aexodus is marked down for the faction I chose?

    Perfectly understandable. We're both absolutely insufferable.
