    Is there any way to crack this - not being able to choose an heir really limits rp potential

    Well, you can choose the person who becomes the heir, when the leader dies.

    I recently read the "Should the Augustan Reform be eliminated" poll-thread, and it seems as if the availability of unit slots is a present problem?

    Is there an estimate of how many unit slots EB filled in RTW, and how many are left over? Apparently, M2 doesn't expand on the number of units available.

    If I recall correctly EBI used either 420 or 480 of the 512 unit slots available. They wanted to save some slots for EBII, but apparently they are re-evaluating every unit going to be included, so this "saving up the spaces" probably didn't matter. Which is ok, if you ask me...

    Wow. Strange of CA to offer ten extra faction slots but no more unit slots to match.

    That's how they roll.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    Sadly no, this is not possible since CA didn't added this feature in the main game so maybe in their next TW game.

    Maybe why not, it does take time to make them so only if those members have time they will be done. What I can say for sure is that nice and plentiful renders of them will be done.

    Btw, you forgot the oxybeles...

    Yeah well that also happened because of the reduced number of faction slots but now they will be more units, faction specific.

    We all do. Then you'll like the next preview which should be released in a couple of months.

    I think a little clarification is in order.

    EB team has stated that it is in some clever way possible to choose which character becomes the next heir to the throne. Most probably this is by boosting his influence or some other trait which directly specifies the next heir. It is still impossible to change the heir.

    So, if you have a leader Alexander, and his heir is Polymachos, you can't change the heir to be Aristoteles instead of Polymachos. The hardcoding makes it so Polymachos will be the next leader when Alexander dies, unless he dies before of course. But you can, with modding, specify that Aristoteles will be the next heir when Alexander dies, instead of some drunken lout that has spent all his life getting lover of beauty traits.

    That is my biggest complaint about M2tw. I always hated it.
    What time does not pervert, it destroys outright.

    Ohh I see, I haven't played kingdoms(just a little M2TW) so I didn't knew that, thus my sorries of responding without knowing all the details...

    Some of the other members should and will answer this, but theoreticaly it shouldn't cause any problems even with scripting.

    Ok I have a few questions

    1. Will the ships be remodeled? Another mod I play a lot is Roma Surrectum, (sorry if another mod is not allowed to be mentioned) it has neat looking ships.

    2. Will weapons be upgradeable?

    3. Will religions be expanded? i.e In RS the Greeks and Romans got to chose from like ten different temple types. Referring to the question above if the Romans built a temple dedicated to Vulcan, or the Greeks to Hephaestus then weapons could be upgraded. If a temple for Neptune or Poseidon was created then ships being built there would get command stars at creation.

    3. Will there be merchants?

    4. Will there be priests? And do they have to walk around converting providences?

    1 Yes

    2. No. Their bonuses completely disrupt any balancing

    3. Temples won't give unrealistic bonuses. Temples and the representation of God will be handled unlike vanilla or any other mod.

    4 & 5. No. Although we may use them for other purposes.

    And there aren't that many religion slots. Besides which, they're annoying and innacurate.
