Re: Slitherine learned a lot

I have been playing Spartan and GoT for some time and they are among my favorite games. Hoping to diversify a bit from the Greek region, I ordered CoW. After 3 days of trying (emphasis trying) to play it, I have thrown it away. Even on easy, I faced constant attacks from all of my neighbours who do...

Carthage in Chariots of War?

I was thinking of getting Chariots of War - I mean, just looking at the sheer versatility of ethnic groups it had to offer, and the setting and location this game featured, this sparked my interest. I'm also planning to use it as a sort-of inspiration. However, I'm wondering.. is Carthage also in th...

Re: Diferences between Spartan & Gates of Troy

I've played both games - though I've lost the Spartan CD quite a while ago. But iirc, there are some subtle differences between the two games. - One aspect is that there are tons of new units and civs in GOT than in Spartan, such as Nobles, Massed archers, Thorakitai etc... and you can still play th...

Can't download GoT again.

So my laptop finally died and had to resort in getting a new one and re-obtaining everything I've had from the old laptop. I also wanted to re-obtain Gates of Troy which I purchased in this site, but it looks like I have to buy the whole thing again. :( I can't even remember whether I signed in or n...

Something Odd with the Tribal Scouts...

I was playing the Athenians the other day on impossible difficulty, and I was facing against a simple barbarian horde consisting of just 48 tribal scouts (I think). I had a whole 16-squad army of Elite hoplites, ready for battle, making sure the battle would've took place in open ground, well suited...

New bonuses for Acropolis, Oracle and Colossus

Simply getting the same old "productivity and happiness much increases" effect from 3 different unique buildings is just lame for me now - especially after having played this game for 10 years. So I kinda wanted to give something different for these buildings. For instance: The Acropolis may give th...

Introducing new ethnic groups

So I had an idea on using the map editor for Spartan Iain provided here to make a map of Carthage and its surroundings, or possibly even the Trojan-Latin war Aeneas had in Italy in Virgil's Aeneid. But never had the time to even do the map for these things. But if I ended up doing those one day, I h...

Diplomatic issues in Gates of Troy and mercs

So I just bought Gates of Troy some few days ago and explored it for a while and indeed, some aspects are very different compared to Spartan. And the diplomatic system is also very different. Once, I sent my diplomat to a neighbouring city state (achaea) - (I believe I was playing the pelasgian argi...

changing music files

Another topic guys :-S How do you change the music in the game? Because in my opinion, the music just ruins the atmosphere the gameplay and it kinda makes me sleepy after playing the game for a while. This is pretty much my only complaint to this game that I really want to modify. Found some great m...

Adding units with same model and modding stats

Hey guys, Is it possible to "add" units in the game but putting in an existing model image of another unit? For example, in the Thracian Asti group, adding e.g. Thracian spearmen whilst putting in the "Astynomia" image. Also, another thing: Is it possible to put different stats in units from differe...

Re: Making Colonization Campaign in Spartan

Hi, There is actually a way to implement the colonization campaign without Gates of Troy. But it is VERY tedious and not to mention, time-consuming. All you needed to do is to edit the text files in the campaign folder. Namely, sides.txt, armies.txt and cities.txt but making a back-up copy before do...

Re: Spartan Map Editor

It's more likely that they are in the wrong place, or missing some of the files needed. The editor was something of a nightmare, written by Iain in the main and so not super friendly. I'm not sure of what files you would need I'm afraid. I do know that it would usually write out some kind of error ...

Putting economic/military assistances on the Quick Start Scn

Hi guys, I was thinking - as the campaign featured on a "what if" scenario where "4 major powers has arisen", I was thinking on introducing some kind of assistance appearing - just like how persia and rome sends troops every few years in the grand campaign - but this time, with a mixture of economic...

Re: editing a city brick level in scenarios

Hey guys,

Its ok. I've actually found it out myself :) Also found out that the "sides.txt" file can also used to modify ethnic group and just used to place Lydia as Persian. :) Probably going to change that somehow and apply that to Perge as Persian :) .

Is it possible to edit a city's brick level in general so you could modify it from e.g. small village to small town or something like that? I saw something in the game conte...
