Amazons ver. 2.1

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: Rome: Total War 1.5
Amazons adds three new Amazon factions to the vanilla game: Amazonia, the Valkyrie, and Westwind. These belong to a new culture, that of the Amazons, with new units, generals, retinue members, and traits just for them. My inspiration for Amazonia was the Amazons of Greek legend. I tried to keep them in the spirit of those legends. So just as legend has it, the Amazons are outstanding archers and horsewomen and also use the Labyris, a small double bladed axe. The Valkyrie are an ancient off shoot of the Amazonia faction and the insperation for the later Norse legends. The Westwind amazons were inspired by the "Westwind guards from the "Recluse" series of books.

This is a total re-doing of Subrosa's "Amazon Total War". Thanks to SubRosa for creating ATW and allowing me to mod it.

Unzip the file you download to your base Rome Total War folder (i.e. the one with RomeTW.exe in it). When you are done you should see the folder "amazon" alongside your data, logs, Miles, preferences, saves, and other folders. Like so:


Now create a new shortcut for Amazons.

For more information on editing the Command Line of Rome Total War look here: http://rtw.heavengames.com/rtw/mods/tutorials/command_line/index.shtml

Open Windows Explorer and go to your RomeTW.exe file, then right-click and hold on it.

Drag it out onto the desktop. Let go of the right mouse button. Left click on "create shortcut here"

Now on your Desktop and you will see the new shortcut there, named "Shortcut to RomeTW.exe"

Right-click on the new shortcut, and a box will pop up.

Click on Properties in this box.

A new window will open up, with three tabs across the top. If the Shortcut tab was not already selected, click on it.

Click in very right end of the box named Target.

Now add in a space and then the following text: -mod:amazon -show_err

So your Target box should look something like: "C:\Program Files\Rome Total War\RomeTW.exe" -mod:amazon -show_err

Now click on Apply.

To rename it something more descriptive click on the General tab.

There will be a field at the very top of the window. Type in: Amazons.

Now click on Ok. You are done.

Edorix Nice work.

No acknowledgement of SubRosa?
File Author
I thanked her in the read me file and it's in the short description. If anyone has any comments or suggestions, I'd appreciate them.
