Illyria Reborn V1.2

    Illyria Reborn V1.2


    Illyria Reborn is a mini mod for Rome total war 1.5. During Rome Total War's develpoment Illyria was originally a playable faction but was cut during the games closing stages with most of the assests instead being used for Thrace. Creative Assembly thankfully left refrences of Illyria behind in the game files so with the desire to play as them i have resurrected this once lost and forgotten faction to a fully playable status.

    This mod adds The Illyrians to Rome Total war, changes Thrace to it's original faction look during the games original development, tweaks the thracians unit roster by giving them levy pikemen and noble cavalry, makes various other small tweaks to the campaign map, and adds new menu graphics and other small tweaks for enjoyment. All features can be found below.

    Features

        - Parthia has been replaced by the Illyrians to better represent the games original starting date.
        - Thrace has been given it's original faction colours and unit selection has been tweaked.
        - All original unlockable factions are playable from the start.
        - New win conditions
        - Seleucids now have Parthian territory.
        - New maps for the campaign faction selection screen
        - Text changes/additions to reflect faction modifications

    That's pretty much everything. Enjoy!  ;D

    Credits - Thanks to Ahowl11 for unit suggestions and to Lanjane for helping with unit cards.

    Ooh cool! What's the Illyrian roster like? And does that mean Thrace now has Eastern culture?
    The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

    Mix of Greek & Barbarian, Hoplites, close combat and pitates!  ;D Thrace is left just as they are in Vanilla, i just slightly tweaked the unit selection to make them a little more interesting and gave them the original faction look they had during the games early development!

    D'oh, I meant do the *Illyrians* have Eastern culture? As AFAIK in 1.5 it's a set number of factions per culture.

    hmm i'm not actually sure on the exact number of factions per culture is allowed. They have the Greek culture though as was intended during the original development.
