As Paul59 said, I am working on a mod which aims at making FOGE exported battles in FOG2 usable with the wonderful TableTop mod that Paul59 created.
A few months ago, Paul made a "global" version of the FOG2 TT Mod that enables the player to play exported FOGE battles in FOG2 using the TT Mod's unit rosters. For the mod to be usable, two conditions have to be met :
1. The Global TT Mod must be activated in FOG2
2. The FOGE units in the UNITS.CSV file must match the name of a unit in the FOG2 TT Mod's Squad file.
I really love Field of Glory Empires, and I especially appreciate the FOGE/FOG2 conversion feature. However, I've always found that the way that FOGE units were converted to FOG2 was a bit frustrating at times. FOGE units (Regular Infantry, Heavy Infantry, etc...) are fine for the campaign, but when it comes to tactical FOG2 battles, I feel that they don't really do justice to the variety of troops that Field of Glory 2 offers with its various detailed army lists.
When the Global version of the TT Mod released, I've quicky been able to play it using FOGE with just a few tweaks in the UNITS.CSV file. Once you understand how it works, it's as easy as modifying an Excel file. But I wanted to do a bit more than just modifying existing units, I wanted FOGE's exported battles to have units closer to the FOG2 army lists. So I started creating new units in FOGE, and this takes a bit more time.
For example : Illyrians, Dacians, Thracians all have a similar unit roster with a few exceptions in FOGE. I would like them to be more unique, so I'm creating a few new units for each nation to make their army closer to the FOG2 TT Army list (Ex : Illyrian spearmen, Dacian warbands,...)
Another example : The Etruscans. I modified their unit roster, making it closer to the FOG2 TT Mod, with a class-based army (1st class Etruscan Spearmen, Mixed class Etruscan Spearmen, Pila-armed infantry...).
I've modified a few factions already, but I'd like to do more. Unfortunately, I've been very busy the last couple months because of work and exams I have to pass, but I'll have more free time soon. So I intend to release a first version of the mod on the FOGEmpires forum as soon as possible, probably this summer. I already have a playable version of the mod, but I'd like to make it nicer and to cover more factions before releasing it.
My goal is to make a mod adding diversity to the tactical battles using the FOG2 TT Mod, while still respecting the general balance of Field of Glory Empire's campaign, and historical accuracy as much as possible. So there will still be Heavy Infantry, Regular Infantry, Skirmishers, etc... in FOGE, with all their advantages and inconveniences (Ex : Moutain penalty for Heavy Inf, City Defender/Besieger, etc...). But they will be converted to units much closer to the FOG2 TT Mod and FOG2 army lists when playing tactical battles.
I also want the mod to be as easy to use and modify by the community as possible. So I'll try to explain as best as possible how to modify unit conversions, or create whole new units, so if someone has a different view of how the units should be, it will be easily possible to make personnal modifications
Edit : If I can't make the mod as nice as I would like it to be soon enough, I'll probably release what I have already so people who want to use it can play already, and modify it as they wish. Then I'll release my "personnal" version a bit later. If you have any questions about the mod just ask, I'm a bit short on time right now because of my exams, but I'll be more present soon !
