Field of Glory II 'Table Top Mod' - AVAILABLE NOW!

Post by Daniele » Wed Jan 10, 2018 10:29 am

The player base of Field of Glory II has proved to be very creative and willing since the release of the game, and numerous mods have been created over time expanding the original content tremendously.

The Community Content for Field of Glory II has now been further enriched with the release of the comprehensive 'TT' (or Tabletop Mod) from Paul Adaway. This is for both FoG II and Immortal Fire (although the latter is not required to use this mod)

IMPORTANT! Please update the game to version 1.1.7 in order to properly play the TT Mod

Paul gives full details below but his 'magnus opus' includes approx. 80 new or modified army lists and in keeping with its miniatures based inspiration many new unit figures e.g. nearly all nations have their own specific pike phalanx, there are amended Greek cavalry, a plethora of new Spanish infantry units and one of my favourites – the Tarantine Light Javelin Horse. In all there are upwards of 140 new or modified unit textures in this mod!
For those of you would like to try this mod but are unsure about its impact on the game, rest assured that Paul has not amended the gameplay, rules or unit capabilities in anyway – its focus is on giving players a wider range of armies to choose from and units to play with

Special thanks are of course due to Paul for putting this together and then making it freely available.

We'd also like to extend special thanks to Stephen Hales (of Little Big Men Studios) for allowing the use of his miniatures shield designs in this mod. Those of you who would like to use his designs with your miniature armies should check out his website : https://www.littlebigmenstudios.com/

Notes
- Please note that you need FoG II v1.1.7 or later to use this mod.
- Although Immortal Fire isn't required to use the mod, a player who does not own Immortal Fire will not be able to set up custom battles or campaigns using army lists from the Immortal Fire period. (Including those made by Paul). However, they would be able to accept MP challenges set up by someone who does own Immortal Fire


FIELD OF GLORY II “TT MOD” - DESIGNER NOTES FROM PAUL ADAWAY
This mod greatly expands the units in Field of Glory 2. I am calling it the TT Mod. “TT” because I have got most of my inspiration from the original Field of Glory Table Top army lists. I have added back into the lists a lot of the units from the tabletop version that were left out of the PC version of the game. The mod will come in two forms, a sandbox campaign and a skirmish module (with SP and MP versions).
Nearly all nations have their own specific Pike Phalanx. I have created lots of extra Heavy and Light Cavalry units to replace the ubiquitous vanilla versions. Unfortunately I have no 3D modelling skills, but a lot can be done with new textures, new alpha layers and modding the animation/effects unit.txt files.
I have not modded game play in any way. All unit stats are consistent with the vanilla game. I was tempted to put in my Elephant mod, that I have used in some of my scenarios (i.e. Apollonia), but at the moment it is not included. If I get positive feedback about it, I may add it in later.
This is what is new in the mod:
New army lists:
"Indian (Royal) 500 BC – 180 BC",
"Indian (Royal)179 BC – 319 AD",
"Indian (Republican) 500 BC – 180 BC",

The vanilla Indian list has been split into 4, the Republican armies having no elephants, and the early lists having no light horse archers.
“Georgian 331 BC – 252 AD”,
The vanilla Iberian list has been renamed as Georgian to stop confusion with the “Spanish” Iberians, who now have their own list.

Known Issues:
Some of the new units use modded or swapped unit.txt files that don't quite match the animations of the 3D models, causing slight jumps in the animation if you look closely. This effects the Euzonoi, the new Galatian warbands and a few others. Also the Euzonoi do not actually throw javelins.
The Persian Guard Lancers and Apple Bearers, Crescent shield Spearmen, Etruscan Axemen, Ind-Greek Heavy cavalry, Etruscan Chariot, Lydian Chariot, and Persian Chariot models and textures are all currently “placeholder”
The new Roman banners usually start the scenario “full length”, the alpha layer then kicks in, sometimes when you zoom into them, and then it is fine for the rest of the scenario.

This looks great and sounds cool, but I really don't understand what effects it will have on gameplay...

Will I be able to play standard MP games if I install this mod? Are there going to be separate MP leagues, etc with this mod, or what is the point of installing it for those of us who have never played the tabletop game?

None, apart from variant army lists.

Yes. The standard mod system in FOG2 quarantines mods so they don't affect other stuff. (Global Mods are different, but we have not yet made any of those available).
Are there going to be separate MP leagues, etc with this mod, or what is the point of installing it for those of us who have never played the tabletop game?
You can put up MP challenges using the mod and they can be picked up by other plays who also have the mod installed.

Wargaming isn't entirely about competition (or so I am told), some people just like the pretty units.
