Re: Heavy Cavalry?

Antigonids don't have access to HC, they have cataphracts and companion cavalry (with increased cost)

Re: How to conduct the perfect amphibious invasion?

Another tip is to have an important fleet in the coastal region, it can resupply landed units.

Re: Will building walls/fortifications overcome raids?

Walls and fortifications in general are adding a significant bonus to counter raiding.

Re: Add new national structure???

You can add it at the end of structures.xls and then export it to csv. The xls is in the DATA\database directory, I suggest you start copying another national structure, then change the ID (first column) and the rest as you see fit.

Re: Modding the notifications

You can alter the file as you wish, it will only impact messages Black market messages uses a semi generic message generating text, you can't alter it specifically, unless you work with the code around like 4611 of events.bsf The same is true for regional decisions, that's not a message category spe...

Re: @Pocus - What exactly are the rules of war?

What matters is the de facto controller for passage right, not the de jure one.

So cases 1 and 2 are true, 3 is not.

Re: Macedonian phalanx?

You progressed to CL3, meaning you had at least 20 regions and were a glorious republic with 5 tokens.

Re: Is it really that hard to have actual Egyptian and Babylonian names for the generals?

Actually - checking the data, there is a leader group for Egypt only, and it was not used! So I can certainly add that to the patch.
Babylon uses the Semitic leader group.

Given few empires existed in 550 BC, the restriction on the number of regions has been doubled to 20 ... Conquer more lands!

Re: Smaller map

There was indeed a smaller scenario done before release for some youtubers. But it ask for some significant rework as it is quite old now. A modder could probably restrict part of the map, like the regions initially locked at the fringe of the known lands, but it also ask for some work and it would ...

Re: A quick review and some suggestions

Of course, a game stands or falls on its own merits. I do own EU4 (yes, all of it). But if you compare the resources invested in 2 products. Empires is so much more. But I am sure, right now as I write PDS' CFO is shaking his or her head that I missed the point of EU4 ... the game is all about ROI ...

Re: STRUCTURES Forbidden Terrain fix

Usually not enough time to make the perfect code. Also revising an existing code demands re-testing, as even a simple change can introduce a bug, from experience. These time, with too few testers, the risks are bigger than the rewards.

Very nicely laid review, thanks. I agree on the shortcomings. Players mostly asked for a better AI for the provincial management though, only I see how it could be useful to automate also regions themselves.

In the Persia DLC, Cyrus II is both king and general.
Yes that's true, but the system was not easy to extend in a generic way, so only Cyrus II had this feature. But it is paving the way for an improvement, for sure. Perhaps not in this game, but the next :wink:
