Hello everyone, from now on, I will use this thread to update you on the mod I'm doing, Spartacus Total War.


The mod will focus on the gladiator uprising lead by Spartacus and on the many events taking place by that time.
The mod will be as historically accurate as possible, having in mind, of course, that his is a game and supposed to be fun, not a history lesson.


The new factions will be:

The Republic of Rome (previous Julii)

The Gladiator Rebels (previous Macedon)

The Roman Rebels (previous Scipii)

The Eastern Provinces (previous Brutii)

The Celts (previous S.P.Q.R.)

The Mauritanians (previous carthage)

The Kingdom of Bithinya and Pergamum (previous Seleucid Empire)




The map will suffer some changes. More regions will be added, as well as the starting territories for the remaining factions, and some tricks I won't reveal so you can be surprised while playing it.



Since I'm no artist whatsoever, I'm using skins and units that already exist on the game and those on Andalus' AUP (to who I give my many thanks in advance for giving me permission to use them), with some minor changes. You will see for yourself, in time.




If someone is willing, I could really use some help creating faction symbols. I have the ideas but not the talent to make them. If so, just say something here and I'll contact you.


This is all for now. As soon as I have news, I will update.

Thanks, awesomated. Here are some more.


New mercs:
For Syria. Archers and Infantry. I need two opinions though.






Veil or no veil? Sword or Spear? I'm inclined towards the spearmen, but I'm having serious doubts about the veil.

And Nabateans

Your models are easily the best i have saw, Neo; they seem pretty realistic, but at the same time are colorful and recognizable at first sight, and they are not overcharged with features, a vice sometimes common in realistic models. Awesome work, really

Now.....i`m waiting the realease. im REALLY waiting it.

Spear and no veil it is, then. Thank you all

Anarchasis, thank you. That is my intention. I see no point on making all the mercenaries green. The ones I'll use from vanilla will keep being green, but those I make myself, I decided to make them a bit more colorful and recognizable, without going too far on the detail, wich can sometimes be a little too much. Actually, that's the objective of the whole mod. Making it as good as possible, without going too far.

In other news, I'm preparing several map previews, wich I think the forum is badly missing! Stay tunned <:

Thanks, awesomated. I answered your e-mail, btw

I need an opinion. Wich one of these should be the final Merc Numidian Cavalry skin?

The simpler?


The one with the black guy?


Or the one with the leopard skin?



I think the black skin is too dark for a north african, so I probably wont use it, but I decided to post it anyway. The main doubt is if I should keep the animal skin or lose it and go with the simpler version?

New units and skins !

City Militia for

Iberia


Mauritania


and Numidia



Slingers for Mauritania


and Numidia


New skins for the African Legionaries of Mauritania


and Numidian


to replace the old ones



Numidian Cavalry for Mauritania


Numidia


and a merc version


(just imagine the horses under them)

and also Numidian Raiders


It crossed my mind to add another infantry unit to the Numidia roster. Somekind of levy infantry like this


but I think it would be redundant having the city militia and another levy infantry unit, so I guess I wont.

Hello

Neo- If you had decided to make another levy unit then i would suggest this:
Make one of the levy units with high attack and low Defense and opposite for the other......

Thanks

When exactly is the timeline for the campaign? At 49bc the Roman Civil War broke out, after Julius Caesar Conquered Gaul, he beat the Republic's army led by Pompey, and became Dictator for life(though his life was short lived due to his assassination, then Octavian fought Mark Antony for what was to be The Roman Empire.

If your campaign reaches the civil wars, It would be excellent if the civil wars topped off the gladiator revolt, who knows maybe Spartacus and Julius Caesar might join forces against the Republic of Rome. Then they might fight each other for Rome, who knows?

Heya,

I have to say, this is the best mod I have seen for any game so far. I have looked in so many places for a gladiator mod, and this one is probably the ebst one I could have hoped to find. The Models and untis are simply superb, I love the gladiator faction. When is the release date?

Btw, I can mod to some degree, and I would consider myself a rather good artist on gimp. So if you need help with textures/modding .txt files, I will help.
