Vanilla Extended Mini Mod
« on: May 14, 2018, 07:56:16 PM »

Vanilla Extended Mod has been a little project i have been working on for a rather long (too long) time.  I have always enjoyed Vanilla Rome Total War and it's gameplay but have grown rather tired of replaying the same factions over and over again. Vanilla Extended rectifies this by adding 5 new factions and slightly tweaks and modifies some existing factions with a few new units and roster tweaks.  I am releasing this current build as i simply have no more free time to work on this mod anymore and feel that leaving all the assets i have currently worked on be dumped to the side lines would be a rather silly waste. So what does this version include?

List of Changes as followed
- The Romans are now a single faction with all family members combined. Includes complete retextured units and UI's
- The Brutti have been replaced with Epirus,  with skins and UI's
- The scipii have been replaced with Pergamum, with skins and UI's
- The Senate have been replaced with Bosporan Kingdom, with skins and UI's
- Parthia has been replaced with the Kingdom of atropatene, with skins and UI's
- Ptolemaic Kingdom has replaced Egypt with a slightly more believable unit roster.
- new map images  for the campaign faction selection screen
- New faction win conditions
-New units for some existing factions and tweaks too!!
and a lot more that i'm too tired to list off

Credits!
CG for letting me use his awesome Egyptian skins that would have otherwise caused me more headache and work and for creating THS which has inspired me and this mod greatly  ;D
NGR mundus magnus for settlement refrences
Lanjane for his fantastic unit cards
And thanks to Jubal and the Exilian for giving this mod a little home!!

This will be the only release version of this mod at the time of writing. As stated previously i simply have no more spare time to work on it. The mod should be pretty crash free from testing (fingers crossed) as mod is basically just a heavily modded Vanilla. If any small bugs pop up i'll be sure to fix those when i can but any major work will not happen.

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.
