Re: Pontic army

1) Seems that Pontus has no Phalanx by design, looking in the factions.csv there is a note to this effect. You do get imitation legions off the improved HI. If you want to mod this change columns DI-DK of 'AEP_Factions', with the usual warning that this will affect MP games. 2) is definitely wrong,...

Pontic army

Hey everyone ! I’m playing Pontus right now with the diplomacy update. I’m 60 turns into the campaign, and I managed to capture a few provinces, including Galatia (offering barbarian warbands as a provincial unit) and Asia minor, where a Barrack was built by the former occupant of the lands. So I ha...

Re: Poll on decisions

As far as the already existing decisions are concerned, I feel the same as loki100. One of the major decisions for me is « Merchants and Patricians », it’s so useful I almost always use it whenever I can. Perhaps that it’s almost too powerful ? Adding a %chance of having something bad happening when...

Re: Roman Legions Spiraling Costs

I think that the spiralling cost are justified, gameplay wise and history wise. Historically, the roman army didn’t rely solely on roman legions. During the Republic, Socii (represented here by Alae legions) made up a sizeable part of the Roman forces, and a lot of Auxilliaries where present to prov...

Re: Neutral AI invading besieged province

The same thing happened again for me during the same game : I was besieging the Etruscan Capital, and a Celtici army (at war with the Etruscans) enters the region. I order my army to assault the city the next turn because I don’t want to see the city I’ve been sieging for two turns lost to the newco...

Neutral AI invading besieged province

Here's my problem : As Rome, I'm besieging a city owned by the Senones. I've been sieging the region for two turns and the garrison is suffering heavy casualties. I'm thinking about assaulting the city soon, but then the Etrusci, who have neutral relations with me, just come in and take the city I w...

Re: Objectives given without any ratio and sense

In my opinion, dynamic objectives are a good thing, and with the tweaks coming in 1.0.5 things will be better. Having fixed objectives is going to make things a bit predictable and can alter replayability. Dynamic objectives with the factors mentionned by Pocus (Relations with the other nation, popu...

Re: Default Elite level for Roman Legions for transferred battles to FOG2

I agree that non-veteran pre-Marian republican Roman legionaries could more accurately be rated "Above Average" as they are in vanilla FOG2. The reason they were done as they have been done in the Empires > FOG2 conversion database is to allow the Roman legions to be distinguished from allied alae....

Re: Default Elite level for Roman Legions for transferred battles to FOG2

I think that the current system is fine personnally. I think that the commander’s ability doesn’t only represent the effectiveness of his manœuvers on the battlefield, but also other aspects of war such as logistics management, troops marching and foraging in the countryside for days before the batt...

Re: Scripts Modified - Game to be abandoned (Another Fatty)

I’m no expert in modding at all, I haven’t had the time to really play with mods yet, but : There should be a way to mod safely the game without these inconveniences. A sort of mod folder, and a mod manager in game to select the required mod or the normal vanilla game. As I understand it, the actual...

Re: A mod to increase mercenaries for Carthage ?

Carthage actually has access to various mercenary units, however they are limited by regions. So, it can recruit the generic mercenaries everywhere (hoplites and cavalry), but also iberian infantry in Spain, gallic cavalry in Gaul, balearic slingers in the western Mediterranean islands and numidian...

Re: [MOD] Ode to Europa Barbarorum - Version 0.1 Released (New TT Mod Units' Textures Preview - page 2)

Bercor, about the modding of the Roman unit roster : If the FOG2 « Veteran Hastati/Principes » isn’t used, perhaps that you could create a new FOGE unit named « Evocati » (translating as a « Veteran Hastati/Principes » FOG2 unit), representing the veterans voluntarily re-enlisting in the army for ne...
