Rome Total War- unit pack overhaul
« on: December 22, 2013, 12:33:34 PM »
To be developed by great Lenin Cat and anyone who wants to help him.
This mod will aim to bring more diversity to factions that lack it in vanilla (like Dacia) , remove fantasy units, balance previous units and a total rework on the Ptolemaic Empire and mainly barbarian factions.

It's always fun to tweak up the game to your liking - a good starting point for many things to come. :)

So I will have a schedule to work on. I will take every faction one by one.
1. Ptolemaic Empire
2. Dacia and Thrace
3. Other barbarians
4. Easterners ,Carthage and Iberia
5. As I will ask ahowl11 permisssion for using his unified Rome mod first, I will have 2 faction slots left.
I want one to be Illirya and I will listen to your suggestions for another one.

Thanks Jubal ,if you find some spare time can you tell me how to make sprites. It will probably be my main problem.

Sprite generation is quite complicated, but here is a handy tool to use: http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?57990-New-utility-Sprite-generator
Instructions are also there. I've only been able to generate them once and that was for TWOH.

The good news is that except on ancient rigs they're not thaaat necessary. WHTW, for example, basically has no sprites.  :P

I never make sprites for my mods. Havn't had any complaints
God, Family, Baseball, Friends, Rome Total War, and Exilian. What more could I possibly need?

Jubal, can I have a subforum?
It will make more ambitious to actually do this project.

I suppose that would be my job, so I'd better do some work around here. :P

I'll get it right up.
