    Hi, I plan to create a mod that will (at least in the beginning) make certain factions playable in custom battles.

    My goals:
    • Playable Dorians (Cleodaeus), Knossos (Idomeneus), Mysia (Telephus) and Pylos (Nestor) in custom battles.
    • New factions will have unique units and heroes (faction leaders). At the moment the plan is to create 12 unique units + unique faction leader. The rest of the roster will be shared with other factions - like Pylos will use some basic Greek units shared from other Greek factions.
    • Use/edit existing assets to create distinct visual style for each faction.


    Possible future goals:
    • Factions expansion - playable Athens (Menestheus), Meliboea (Philoctetes) and Ilion Imbrasos (Troilos)
    • Make them playable in the campaign.

    The first phase of the mod has been released on Steam - check the first post for the link.

    I am waiting for Epic to approve the mod on the Epic Store. I will update the first post when it is done.

    EDIT: Epic link is ready.

    I have updated the mod with Ilion Imbrasos (Troilos) faction. Both on Epic and on Steam. It might take a few hours for it to be approved on Epic.

    Thanks, it has been quite a modding journey!

    This is not the end of playable factions as in the next update I want to build foundations of another faction (starting with custom battles). I have edited the post.

    Great mode!

    I have the Epic Store version but I cannot find the mod that keeps the vanilla colours of the campaign map.

    Can you please upload that mod somewhere else besides Steam?

    Thanks Nikron!

    I don't recall creating such mod (changing colors of the campaign map). Can you link the mod here?

    Ah, no problem. I guess with colors you probably meant Agony, right?
