Re: Refuse Orders in Anarchy Mod

Re: Refuse Orders in Anarchy Mod

I think you've identified the heart of the issue. The social structure and military structure of these societies differed greatly. Why the soldiers were fighting and what they were fighting for also varied greatly. But how much of a difference did it really make on the battlefield? The Superior vs ...

Re: Aggregate Mod

I'm not sure technically how to make a global mod exactly, or if that is a separate type of mod, but given that the TT mod mostly involves content changes, and the aggregate mod is all script changes in the bsf files, it might be pretty straightforward to combine them, the one caveat being the squa...

Re: FOGE's last update and Units

Alright, after looking at the files a bit more, I can see that the new DLC Campaign has different unit rosters assigned to the factions inside the FACTIONS.CSV file ! I should have looked more carefully. So if I want to keep the new Hellenic Inf for the new DLC and revert to the old Hellenic Inf for...

FOGE's last update and Units

As I understand it, when I look at the DATA files after the new DLC update, new units were added to the UNITS.CSV and i can't find a "UNITS.CSV" file that is specifiquely tied to the new DLC 550BCE campagin. So if there is only one UNITS.CSV for both time periods, it means that the units roster is s...

Re: Aggregate Mod

I have a question : Is this Aggregate Mod supposed to be a global mod, or is it supposedly gonna work divided in different modules (custom battles, campaign, multiplayer...) ? It would be awesome if it could work as a Global mod, in order to be able to use other « content mods » such as the Table To...

Re: How would I change what units are converted to when importing a Field of Glory II battle?

Well actually, I do plan to mod more things in my custom scenario this summer after I graduate from college ! I’d like to rework some of the Diadochi’s units and add new unique units to the Dacians, the Illyrians, the Thracians, and some Hellenic factions in order to make the FOG 2 exported battles ...

Re: How would I change what units are converted to when importing a Field of Glory II battle?

It’s quite easy to do actually ! What I did is that I created a new scenario (modding the main game is not advised, the better thing to do is to create a new scenario and to play around with the files there) You can see how to do it there : http://archonwiki.slitherine.com/index.php/Empires_Modding ...

Re: Should pikemen be exempt from anarchy rules in the mod?

About anarchy charges, just a thought I had today : Could it be possible to make apply anarchy charges to all « shock » type units (aka FOG1 anarchy prone units, including Roman legionaries) plus a few others (Falxmen, zealots, etc...), but in a « two way » system ? Let me explain : currently, you g...

Re: Anarchy charges poll . . .

As far as Ancient Rome is concerned, one quick example that I remember : the battle of Thapsus in 46 BC. Caesar lost control of the veterans of one of his most experienced legions, and they charged without order while Caesar was riding down the line trying to convince his men to hold their position...

Re: Anarchy charges poll . . .

I see a lot of comments of certain troop being excluded from anarchy. Why? Legions, pike and hoplites certainly could be prone to “unauthorized” charges, as history shows. Legit question: your memory is obviously far better than mine...can you point us to any of these engagements where legions, pik...

Re: Command and Control mod (was Tournament mode) . . .

And what about people who only play single player like I do ? This mod is very interesting to me. Not testing such modifications that aren’t mandatory for all players just to avoid the MP players to be “tempted” to use different rules is something that would look a bit silly to me and other SP playe...

Re: Anarchy charges poll . . .

This mod would be absolutely fantastic, it would be my dream mod ! I like anything that brings the game closer to realism, I only play SP (for now) using both FOG2 campaigns and exported FOGE battles, a mod using these new rules would bring the immersion to a whole new level

If you really did want to incorporate the Macedonian Pike and Ligurians changes into the Global mod, all you would have to do is copy the Squads.csv file from the new TT Mod v1.5.28 and paste it into your Global TT Mod folder, overwriting the old Squads.csv file. Thank you ! I didn't even think abo...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires - Persia 550 - 330 BCE is coming soon

I am glad the game is being improved (even with a new separate time-span campaign). Can you continue the new campaign into the existing campaign up to 190AD? I would have preferred improving the current campaign by moving the starting year from 310BC to 550BC, like PDX did with their DLCs. Will any...
