Check the data files. I'm not sure which one, but you can edit it to put them wherever you want.

Anywhere with the elephant resource (a little elephant on the campaign map) has them. They are rather rare though, and turn up with a 1 in 200 chance per turn.

The data files...in your RTW data folder...in your directory?!

Editing descr_strat makes them available I believe.

If you have Mundus Magnus installed you should head out to India, the place is crawling with them. Everywhere else they're very rare.

It's a mod that gives you a much bigger map with loads more cities. Somebody else will no doubt provide a link to it but I think you can get it from some of the other RTW forums. It extends the map south as far as Ethiopia and the Sahara, north to include Scandinavia and the whole of Scotland and east to include what is now Pakistan, Afghanistan etc. It also changes the territories each faction starts with.

Heartily recommended

"mp"? i can only assume you mean the map, and yes, it does . . incredibly ! it revises the entire map to send it spiralling out of whack. I have never actually been able to dominate a single continent like i have (easily) in Vanilla.

Just check out the screenshot. you'll understand

ACtully your worwng. Check the data files. In a normal un-modded data file (not mine) they are only availiable in the province of Antioch. So i modded my files to make them available throughout africa, and the middle East.


P.S. its "Mercenaries". .

Both quotes from the standard 1.2 data file. According to this, they are available in: Assyria (Hatra), Syria (Antioch), Babylonia (Seleucia), Coele Syria (Damascus), Phonecia (Sidon), Mauretania (Tingi), Numidia (Cirta), Gaetulia (Dimmidi) and Sahara (Nepte).

The line:

Quote:

unit merc elephants,exp 0 cost 4000 replenish 0.005 - 0.015 max 1 initial 0


means:
unit merc elephants = The unit Mercenary War Elephants can be hired.
exp 0 = They will have no experience chevrons.
cost 4000 = They will cost 4000 denarii.
replenish 0.005 - 0.015 = The chance of them appearing is randomly between 0.5 % and 1.5 % per turn.
max 1 = There can be a maximum of 1 unit available at a time.
initial 0 = There are none available at the start.

NB - If you hire a mercenary unit from one province in a pool, then it will be gone from all provinces in that pool.

Neither have I. They are very rare.

If you want to get them more often, then change:

Quote:

replenish 0.005 - 0.015 max 1 initial 0


to:

Quote:

replenish 0.995 - 1.000 max 10 initial 5


or something. You'll be seeing a lot of them. Make sure you back up your files first though.
