Will vakarr's Thracian mercenary and ally mod ever be available in multiplayer? It's great!

TBH it was an oversight that I did not already add an MP version. It is now done and you can download it in game.

Sorry I don't understand what you mean by "download it in game".

The MP version isn't on my list of available downloads in the game. Is it because I'd already downloaded the SP version?

Yes, the list only gets refreshed when the game starts.

There are some strange things, the Macedonian army list has units that cost 0. The Gallic Thracian list is named Umbrian.

Yes and Triballi are shown as Apulian in the challenge list. There are also 255 elements of an unknown troop type in the Macedonian list. However I think it is a fantastic job and really lifts the Thracians as an interesting option. I wonder if it is possible or envisaged to combine this mod, the vanilla list and the TT mod into a single list.

Yes the Thracians are boosted for 1 point from average to above average. That is a point well spend I think. I would say a very fantastic job.

That is just a display error in the MP Lobby, caused by the ArmyList.txt file not having REPLACE at the top. The armies should be correct in the actual game.

However, I have fixed that issue and put v2 up on the FTP.

I will have to leave vakarr to fix any other issues.

Note that previously created challenges will continue to use the old version.

I will wait until the next version and DLC are released before making any changes (as a beta tester I am not allowed to explain why but I will say I am very excited about them).


If you like the mod and would like an explanation of the lists and why the changes were made, I think you will enjoy reading this:

It's available as a 256 page fully illustrated hardback or as an E-book. It's not just about the Thracians, a large part is devoted to discussing light troops in general.

Thanks Chris! No problem in waiting for the next version and DLC. BTW when the changes are made please note that there appears to be a bug with the mod as sometimes both armies can have the same flag colour. I bought your book.
