Introduction

This is a mod for Barbarian Invasion. It is intended to cover the Iron Age tribes in Britain, but is not aiming for historical accuracy, but for enjoyment of the player. I wanted to play as British Tribes for a long time, and so decided to make this mod. The Romans may be included as an emergent faction during the campaign.

Factions

The factions that will be included are:
  • Iceni
  • Trinovantes
  • Brigantes
  • Ordovices
  • Dumnonii
  • Cornovii
  • Silures
  • Belgae
  • Regini
  • Catuvellauni
  • Atrebates
  • Attacotti
  • Picti
  • Scoti
  • Gaels
  • Aedui
  • Independant Gallic Tribes
  • Germanic Tribes
  • Iceni Rebels
  • Romans
  • Rebels/Independant Cities

    Feedback on this list please . Also, the Germanic Tribes and Independant Gallic Tribes have been included because of the idea I have had about possibly including a "Caesar in Gaul" Provincial Campaign.

    Map

    This is the extent of the campaign map, I will upload the region map when it is finished. Thanks to CaesarVincens for offering to help me with the map.

    Just a tip - remember the Picts (in what is Scotland (formerly Scottish lands now in England inclusive), and the Scotii and Gaels in Ireland (if historical accuracy is a point, I'm not sure about when the Gaels arrived in Ireland, their own annals mention being led by an Iberian king but don't say when. It is doubtlessly well before the birth of Jesus, but may not be within the timeframe of your game).

    Looks very good, although the helmet and shield textures are a bit blurry, i'm not sure if thats how the BI ones are though.

    Ah you mean in the middle? That will need fixing lol. However if i can get someone with 3d studio to help me with importing and exporting the .CAS files I will attach a new shield onto it which will have a better texture anyway.
    Hehe, enter Private Clark, i could help you out if you like

    Looking good!

    Shield mismatch? they just have a nice lightning bolt on their shield!


    Are you going to have some kind of Iceni uprising? For instance if the Romans take a set number of towns in Britain, including certain ones, Boudicca will spawn with an army?

    I have read that you're not aiming for historical accuracy. but as a dutch person, I have to say that the current Flevoland shouldn't be included, it's a modern polder.

    i wanted to upload an image, but imageshack failed...
    Flevoland is the sort-of island in the middle of the
    Netherlands

    Yep, it's true, having no sig is boring. But so is this one. Which makes my point... relatively pointless.
    Can a point be a point when it is pointless?

    Flevoland

    Also see Zuiderzee Works

    BTW, it's really weird to see those names in an English text when you're Dutch like me.

    I agree on what Boetje and Hussarknight said. And I think Zeeland should also be less land, but that could just be me. Zeeland now.
    Zeeland how it used to be.

    And my guess is that almost half of the land here was man-made after getting all the water out

    Any comments on my idea from earlier? They're all Celtic races (although the Picts are veiled in considerable confusion for the most part) so they'd fit with the others. And what's the timeframe of this game? And I know historical accuracy isn't your main goal, but don't overlook the different tribe's/race's religions, either.

    @ gallowglass: I think that the Scotii and Gaels were in my original faction list, which I lost when Mixed Mods went down. I'll definitely include one of them, if not both. And the Picts will definitely be included.

    Son, you said it would be in Iron Age Britain, but that is a pretty broad time-frame. Do you have an specific perioud in mind? You mention possibly having the Romans enter (as an emergent horde might work best), so that makes me think it might start somewhere around 100 BCE and run into the 1st Century CE?
    That's the banshee, Sub
    I was not thinking of the Scottish Bean Nighe (which I know means "Washer at the Ford" and is another form of banshee in Scottish Gaelic belief), but rather the earlier Irish and Welsh versions where the Washer was an actual goddess, such as the Morrigan or Modron. Of course the Morrigan is perhaps best known in this role for her part in the death of Cú Chulainn, but also when she met Dagda before the Battle of Mag Tuired.

    All you need to know now is what the name Morrigan means and you're an expert

    Damn...heh...unexpected. Usually people who know about the Gaelic pantheon are Gaels. You're most likely unique!

    I have a question. If I change the faction name in descr_sm_factions.txt, does that mean I have to change the names in the {} in the files, for example expanded_bi.txt?

    Sorry if this question is unclear, I'm really tired atm.

    I recommend you not change the faction names in there. If you do, then you would have to change the names in brackets to match as well. Not to mention everywhere else the internal names are used, like Descr_Strat, Export_Descr_Unit.txt, Descr_Model_Battle, etc... It is a lot more work, and just begging for ctds, when simply editing the files in the Text folder will change all the names you see when playing the game.

    Thanks. Is it safe to change the culture in that file though? For example Roxolani from Nomad to Barbarian?
