Re: Fiction Book Recommendations

As above, Eagle in the Snow, plus Alfred Duggan Novels. For the period covered by the game currently I suggest Elephants and Castles Three's Company Winter Quarters The King of Athelney Plenty more when the game gets into the medieval period. He also wrote some good non-fiction. He Died Old is very ...

Re: Field of Glory Integration

But, why would that happen? Roman archers were not recruited in Italy. If you want early empire archers you should need early empire territories that supplied archers.

Re: Field of Glory Integration

The period of the game is the same as FoG2. DLCs extend FoG2 forward or backward in time so are not needed.

Re: M key binding

Sorry. Just updated to latest version. I don't understand this at all. In Options/Input M is already bound to Movement Skill. I don't see any mention of Aerial Units in the Input screen. What is Enter the options menu on the right side of the key list mentioned? If I find the option mentioned, does ...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires “Triumph” (1.04) Update is out

Are you saying that number is the maximum? I read the tooltip but it makes no mention of the value of the maximum it just says there is one, hence my confusion. If it is the maximum, how do I know the maximum before I reach it, as that number is not always visible and seems to appear once the amount...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires “Triumph” (1.04) Update is out

In game update button generates FTP error as with the recent FG2 update. I know there are other ways of doing this, but there seems to be a general update problem at the FTP end.

Re: New TT Mod version 1.5.18 now available!

Mystery solved. I thought I had correctly the TT Mod Custom Battles, but it looks like I didn't. I must have just selected it in the RH list and then chosen Anglo Danish without hitting Launch. When done properly I see the amended army list and the Roman banners.

The banners show a boar when I try the Anglo Danish, not Roman at all. As for the screenshot - just press print screen on your keyboard. The image file will appear in the Screen folder in the FOG2 folder in My Games. Use the full editor and add the image as an attachment inline using the buttons at ...

Re: New TT Mod version 1.5.18 now available!

There seems to be a bug in the Cretopolis Epic Battle included in the Mod. Playing Antigonid I have destroyed or routed every enemy unit with 8% losses but have not won as enemy losses are shown as 36% even though there is not a single unit remaining on the map. I have played the scenario from the o...

The Game doesn't understand the four colour theorem

The game doesn't seem to understand the need to map using the Four Colour Theorem (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_color_theorem). Massilia, Arverni and Galli are all the same colour of brown in my current game when the political view is chosen making the political view useless. In this attached ...

Re: Lusitanian Depravity

I agree. Players should not be able to manipulate heir ruler or generals just because they don't like the characteristics. That's just how things are.

But depraved leaders should be more likely to be removed by coups, assassination, mobs etc. just like real life.

Re: Can you make peace with somebody else's client state?

Currently Macedonia. Epirus and Pergamon are my clients. Epirus is at war with Rome, but I have no diplomatic options relating to such a war. It is absurd that Rome who I have a cooperation agreement with should be DoW so I can improve relations between my client and Rome to peace! Just makes no se...

Clients just don't make sense

According to the manual Clients are like allies but have limited diplomatic option and hand over cash and manpower. This has some very strange effects. In my current game as Macedonia Epirus became a client. At the time it as at war with Rome. becoming a client didn't trigger a war between Rome and ...

Re: Decadence is ruining this game for me...

I have found the game quite easy to get into once I realised the Epirus scenario isn't the introductory scenario it looks like it is meant to be.

My only real issues are around the diplomacy system where some sensible options are just not available.
