Updates, Previews, and Announcements Compilation
« on: March 20, 2014, 12:52:28 AM »
I recently accepted an invitation from ahowl11 to be in charge of the preview, announcement, and release threads as a sort of promoter/public relations person for Total War Center.

For the sake of organization, I have created this thread where we can put any images or information on our progress that would be useful to put in announcement thread(s) for Total War Center all in one place.  Right now I won’t be too picky on what to put here, so feel free to post screenshots, updates, milestones, UIs, or any other mod progress updates with the mod here.

Maybe we can set up a Roman Preview after the Roman roster is finished? We need more attention at TWC.
Going off this, I am thinking an all-Roman preview might be a nice way we can start our publicity on Total War Center.  We could use parts of the U.I. and Unit Making Threads and some other Rome-related stuff.  What that stuff may be I have little idea.  Do we have new banners, buildings, or things related to the campaign map?

Yes an all Roman Preview would be a nice kickstart. We can use the faction symbol and banners as well as the new units. I alsohope to use the Roman UI from AEE.

Here are some Pine Trees from AEE, don't they look great? Make sure to cut out the interface parts of the screens so players can't look at the map etc. I'm still waiting for the other trees to arrive and I'll take better screens.




God, Family, Baseball, Friends, Rome Total War, and Exilian. What more could I possibly need?

Those are pretty good trees.  I cropped them like this:

I think it was a decent crop.

I had some difficulty distinguishing which were Roman soldiers in the UI topic.  :-\  I guess I need to call up my optometrist.  Should we compile the UIs here, or the AEE ones?

I say compile everything here haha. We can wait on the above right now here is what we will be previewing now that Jack is on the team..

We will be previewing the factions since they are all set up. Now this will be a brief preview but Jack will be doing a video segment on the faction selection screen briefly discussing the factions and what fans should expect to see from them with units, starting position, characters and some history.

Mausolos, if you could write a brief historical description of each faction, we can also put that in the preview.

Then Aquila, if you could get the symbols and banners of each faction together we can use those in the preview, maybe putting it next to the text or something.

Go ahead and work on that, Mausolos the descriptions don't have to be very long, just something to build the faction up for the players. Post the rough draft here and then Aquila can work on formatting the symbols and banners in. In the mean time I will PM Jack the script for him to read for his video. He will also post his video here. Then Aquila can put it all together on TWC for our first official preview :)

How about if I write the introduction from a 280 BC point of view? Pretending not to know what happened after? And should I start with Rome then?

Have we found a solution on Macedon yet? It will be hard to write an introduction if I don't know if the player holds Pella at the start or not ;)

I used Greek spelling, you can correct that if you want.
