It was a corrupt download. Working perfectly now. Thanks for the patient advice.

There are three versions of the mod, single player custom battles, MP custom battles, SP campaigns.

I am guessing you have not installed the last of these, otherwise it would appear in the list of campaigns - near the bottom of the list. (User content campaigns are listed after vanilla ones).

For the others, in the Custom Battles screen, click on the "Select another module" button top right.

It is the wrong place.

They should be in

I have updated the first post to show this:

DO NOT PUT THIS MOD IN YOUR MAIN GAME BUILD!

It might stop people putting the mod in the wrong place! But then, I would not bet on it!

Thanks for creating this mod and for making it available to everybody.

Those files are quite large. I wonder if you could consider creating and seeding a torrent for them? I am sure that many members would be happy to seed too, once the torrent is created. It would be faster and also help avoid having to disable adblocking etc that is required on that site.

If there is a demand for it I might.

However, I do not have a clue how to create a torrent!

Great! Releasing a torrent is easy. I could do it, but you ought to be the one to publish a link to an official torrent.

1) Download and install some torrenting software. Try https://webtorrent.io/desktop/

2) Run Webtorrent once you have installed it, and click on "file" at the top left and "create torrent from file".

3) Then you will get an url for the torrent which you created. Announce/publish the url on your thread. Tell a few fans and they will start downloading the file from your computer using torrent. (This will mean your computer with the file will be uploading quite a bit at the beginning, but after a while, other people will have the file too and will be sharing it too.)

Why not give it a try?

After some further research, it seems that all of the banner .s4f files and textures needed by the mod need to be in the mod's Banners folder. That includes any vanilla .s4f and .dds files, even the ones I have not changed!

The next version of the TT Mod will include these extra files, and hopefully that will finally solve the long banner problem.

This TT mod is being used for the first time in the FOG II Digital League (Biblical section). The graphics are beautiful and splitting generic faction lists like the Greeks into various City State factions with their own colours and banners really adds something to the game. I for one will be badgering Pete into continuing to use this mod in future leagues. Well done Paul!

Ps. Fixing the banners is icing on the cake.

i m wondering why are there no greek peltasts and thracian new models in the 1.5.3, they do look better than TT models of euzonoi and thracian spearmen

you could also attach 1 to 2 linothorax armour to the greek peltasts models like u did with thureophoroi

The Greek Peltasts and all the new Thracian models are in the TT Mod 1.5.3.

According to Duncan Head's "Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars", Thracian dress and equipment changed around 300 BC. The new Thracian models (with caps) are more suited to the earlier period.

For that reason, I decided to keep my old Thracian Spearmen models/textures for the 299 - 251 BC list. The new models are used for the earlier periods.

I also needed to keep the Thracian Swordsmen unit in the lists, and to clearly visually distinguish them from the other Thracian troop types it was better to keep my old model.

Euzonoi are very different from Peltasts. They were Thureophoroi deployed in the skirmish role, so using the Greek Peltast model is a non starter for me.
