Re: Fiction Book Recommendations

I would recommend "Pride of Carthage" by David Durham. He also has a book about the Spartacus rebellion.

Re: Unit names - Carry over on campaign and battle map?

The unit names in Empires will be shown when you do a tactical battle in FOG2. You won't be able to edit them either in Empires or FOG2 though. In Empires you can rename your stacks of units (armies / fleets) and can choose on the fly if you want Anglicized names or more flavorful names for them. F...

Error Message Starting Game

The first time I tried to start the game after installing the 1.5.3 patch. The file does look damaged.

Re: Rationale for no turn limit in Epic Battles?

The designers can add a turn limit by editing the scenario.bsf for the battle. Here is a list of some things you can do with the SCENARIO.BSF file: 1) Scripted AI orders: you can write more complicated AI orders than the Editor can do. 2) Reduce visibility, for the whole or part of the scenario. 3) ...

Re: Any chance of a DLC covering the period before 680 BC?

I like the DLC that have been released, but I've always had some interest in the warfare of the period before that covered in the game. Is there a chance that we might see a DLC for pre-680 BC armies? I realize that there would be a lot more conjecture for warfare of, say, the Hittites and the Akka...

Re: Legions Triumphant will be out on March, 8th!

For myself I would like to see the biblical armies first (Assyrians, Egyptians, Hittites, Babylonians etc.) before moving forward through the post 500AD armies. Me too. "Swifter than Eagles" never made the cut in FOG I, so I'm guessing it isn't at the top of their list for FOG II, so maybe some tal...

Re: Alexander beats Darius, ..duh

In fact, the numbers of the Persian armies are hugely inflated, as we have only the Greek point of view. Delbruck estimated the Persian army of Xerxes in 30.000 I think a good rule of thumb when dealing with ancient sources in Greek vs Non-Greek battles, is to divide the Non-Greek total by 10. I'm ...

From the other side of the hill, I would recommend "Pride of Carthage" by David Anthony Durham.
