Any interest for an enhancement mod?
« on: April 27, 2008, 09:05:54 PM »
Hey everybody,

I'm wondering if there is any interest for a vanilla enhancement mod. I'm not satisfied with vanilla, but most of the mods are too different from vanilla for me. So I'm making my own enhancement mod. Would anybody be interested in this?

If you are, please tell me what you liked about vanilla and what you disliked/would like to see improved.

Cheers,
RM3

what exactly do you mean "enhancement"? like rebalancing units? adding a few units? Changing starting territories?

Anything really. :)                                                       Note, I probably won't do any reskins to begin with, but I can sure recruit skinners to help.

Ok...

Dislikes;
Egypt. Overpwered, looked utterly stupid. Hellenise them PLEASE.

Rome. Post-marian troops VERY overpowered, please remove, weanken or hsitricise the worst offenders;
- Praetorians were not gods.
- The praetorian cavalry were not that powerufl.
- The Urban Cohorts were a fire brigade.

Although that said, all the late roman troops need a slight drop in power, they aren't that good.

Spartans (see praetorians)

Barbarian Factions.
The probalem here is really that they operate as one tribe, so they have been given really quite poor troops to make up for the abominable large land area.

I'd like to see Spain become Tartessus (slightly ahistorical, but would be a nice touch and fits in well wit their troop tree), with just Carthago Nova.

Gaul should have MUCH better troops individually, several Romans said Barbarians were as good as them individually, ti was just roman tactics, weapons and discipline that won the wars. Have gaul with 2-3 big stakce but jsut the province around Alesia to start. Germans and Britannia the same, 1 province with big stacks.

To Be Continued...
