Basic Army Mod (December 5)

Author File Description

File Details
Game Version: Rome: Total War 1.5
This is a shorter work than my earlier mod, and it includes an easy install/uninstall because it only changes stock units.

I want to make a final version soon.

The recent updates have been through campaign experience, tested while facing large armies of AI troops.

I recommend playing this campaign on Medium to Hard Difficulty with Basic Armies Mod:

http://rtw.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=4634

It has unified Roman Faction, plus better starts for Carthage, Seleucids, Thrace, and so on.

My Bastarnae and Militia Cavalry defeated an Army of Carthage with Elephants and Poeni Infantry; the feeling I get when my warriors hack them to pieces is exhilarating!

If you've ever loved Barbarian Warcrys, this mod is for you!

If you've ever liked challenging battles on Medium Difficulty, this is for you!

I have played through the Seleucid Campaign, Carthage Campaign, Senate Campaign, and half-way through Thrace Campaign, Egypt Campaign, Numidia Campaign, part-way through Dacia Campaign with this modification on my own campaign.

The mod helps auto-battle be resolved more fairly, and allows you to levy troops, while my campaign (David's Campaign) enables better starts send money and a change-up of strategy for the AI players. Another aspect of these mods working together is that the AI can also build armies quickly, meaning there is no end to exciting battles. Also, cities grow faster and have bonuses to public order and health, meaning less plagues, less management and less people drain from settlements when training up units. My other thing is the multiplayer. I now have two computers, and I often put one human, one human, one computer with say 21000 Denarii and 2-3 Ranks for each unit. I find that playing together is something I want to balance this mod for, and make exciting battles while keeping increased morale, defense skill and armor values. I recommend playing on Medium to Hard difficulty with AI when using this mod, rather than very hard which in increased morale, causes an issue where the battle often slants in favor of the AI rather than the action oriented player.

For multiplayer I recommend also Large Unit settings, instead of Huge Unit settings. The mod does not change any graphics, or major unit size changes. However, the mod does increase stat secondary defense skill for almost all units meaning that individual close-combat battles take longer on bridges, walls, and somewhat longer in direct fighting.

Please enjoy the creation and try it out with friends!
