Vanilla Extended mini project
« on: May 14, 2018, 07:56:16 PM »

Hai guys hope i'm posting in the right place for this! Vanilla Extended has been a little project i have been working on for about the past 3 weeks or so after getting back into Rome: Total War (and it's modding) thanks to replaying some THS by CG.  What dawned on me was playing Rome and THS reminded me of my past modification that i had released almost 6 years ago back on the total war centre but to my demise the link to downloading the the project in the hopes of reworking or patching it is long gone and i don't even have the files myself anymore. So with that said i have taken it upon myself to rework the mod but in a more smaller scale and limiting myself to Vanilla Romes limits :P

It's currently still very much a work in progress job but just like my original modification this mod is set around  Diadochi factions, focusing on the era between the rise and fall of the successor states however the mod is in a lot more smaller scale and also extends some of the other remaining factions as well.  The start date is around 279BC and includes a few new factions along with some minor region changes, resurrected hidden units from the original game and a few other tweaks to some other factions.

The Kingdom of Pergamum
The Kingdom of Epirus
The Republic of Rome
The Macedonian Empire
The Ptolemaic Empire
The Seleucid Empire
The Republic of Carthage
The Kingdom of Pontus
The Gauls
The Germanic Tribes
The Bosporan Kingdom
The Kingdom of Armenia
The Dacians
The People Of Thrace
The Greek City-States
The Massalian League
The Scythian Tribes
The Iberian Tribes
The Kingdom of Parthia

Some current work in progress screens are below

Looking good keep it up.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

This is certainly the right place to this, and welcome to Exilian :) Looks fun and I'll hopefully get time to give it a test drive once you've got a working version out.

Looks like a fun faction set as well (though I'd still like to see someone add the Georgian Pharnavazids in a mod, but I'm biased).

Hai guys thanks for the replies! been a little delayed on getting back since i have been pretty busy with some campaign map (mostly for carthage) editing and finishing the bosporan unit roster along with egypt which i have linked below. Thanks CG again for letting me borrow those rather nice looking skins for the ptolemy  :P

I have ran into a little predicament atm though and i have no idea why it's happening. Basically trying to select a siege settlement in the menus for custom battle seems to hard CTD the game with no error at all even though siege battles work just fine on the campaign map. It's not too much of a major problem as at least it's not effecting the campaign map siege battles (thank god) but do anyone of you know what might be causing it?

few of the wip images i talked about

I think I've seen that before, never worked out what caused it :/

I feel like it has something to do with editing Egypt. At first i thought it might be something to do with me editing and adding new regions but i'm pretty sure custom battle maps are seperate from the campaign map? i have reverted back to an older back up that i had from a few days ago when i didn't touch them and i seem to have 0 crashing on custom siege battles and it seems to have fixed the problem with trying to conquer any roman settlement from crashing on the campaign map also. I'm pretty stumped with what it could be but i guess i'll leave them be for now  ???

Change one thing at a time until you find the problem. It's really the only way to do it.

woah thanks a lot Jubal :P

I have been a little distracted with working on a little smaller project along side this which is probably poor choice of wording as it's not close to even being small haha.  I'll leave only two wip screenshots since it's not really related to this current project but i'll be sure to post some more work in progess screens for VE when i get the time. Cheers again Jubal!

Interesting mod idea! From the last picture, with the green Parthia, i guess an Alexander Extended  :)

Thanks! A lot more further back in the time however :P
I'll probably have a thread up for it when i feel more confident and have some more content to show off.
