Silk Road has now been updated to v1.3 including all vanilla army lists from Immortal Fire to Age of Belisarius, and their Far Eastern contemporaries.

The SP & MP non-campaign versions also include:

I dropped AVG. It was interferring with too many graphics tools and didn't seem that reliable. Moved to Avast and had no problems since.

Great stuff!

I don't know how much time jomni has to add new armies, but there are a few that would be great to have for Tides of Conquest campaigns as China's neighbors and adversaries.

Specifically...
Bai Yue southern peoples (all periods, but especially pre-Han)
Tibetans (post-Qiang)
Koreans (Silla, pre-Silla if possible)

Thanks again for the mod!

Thanks for updating it. It's a great mod.

Just one question: Is the v1.3 compatible with v1.2 savegames?

Thanks again

No, because the game treats it as an entirely different mod (to prevent incompatibility issues in MP).

So if you want to finish those games you need to keep v2 on your machine until they are finished.

Good to know, because the mod is also used in the FoG2DL.

Thanks for your answer

Hi everyone. I'm happy to announce that Silk Road 1.4 has been uploaded in the server. The mod combines new armies and units from Rise of Persia with existing Silk Road content. Nothing new on the Chinese side was added as it already goes back to 1000 BC.

For those playing mulitplayer, do not delete Silk Road 1.3 until all your games are finished.

jomni, I think this will mean that players already playing a Silk Road battle using v1.3 should finish it before updating to v1.4 otherwise the game will not work. We have a few such matches in Season 3 of the FOG2DL at the moment. Can you just confirm please?

That is correct, although strictly speaking they don't have to hold off on installing v1.4 because it does not overwrite v1.3. On-going MP games will be tagged as using v1.3, so provided that the player does not delete v1.3 from his system, they should work correctly.

However, it might be safer if they just hold off on installing v1.4 until they have finished their current battles.

Something kind of strange is happening with v1.4 for me. I've tried to set up a Wei vs Wu game in multiplayer, and I've wound up posting a Bruttian/Lucanian vs Sarmatian game instead. I tried it twice and the same thing happened each time. Any idea what might be causing that? I've only downloaded the multiplayer version, and I still have 1.2 and 1.3 installed.

This sounds familiar. Something about the army list.

Silk Road 1.5 is now out. This addresses some issues in the 1.4 version. As usual, only delete the old versions if you have no running games (SP or MP). MP games in 1.4 are broken so just scrap those and set up another using 1.5.

Are there any plans to merge this with the excellent Tabletop Mod? I think they'd go very well together!
