    Default How to cheat and get Marian reforms?

    I've been playing this game for awhile, but I was constantly restarting campaigns because of newer versions.

    Anyhow, I am finally approaching the Marian reforms. I'll have all the conditions except for "popularis" and "consul" traits. How can I cheat to get them? I tried the "give_trait 'charcter name' 'trait'" cheat, but I kept getting "cannot find trait in database" or something to that effect.

    Any advice?

    How about...don't cheat? They're easy enough to get. Make the promising Marius-looking guys fight plenty of battles-he'll become Consul soon enough. Then stick him in a city with a high level temple of Cerus. That'll help him get the popularis trait.

    Try checking the export_descr_character_traits.txt for the names of the traits you want to add. They are not always what you would think or are upper level traits in a series. Those two traits, however, should be what they say.

    I have got marians twice. Both by cheating. First you need to check how many cities you have. Say you have 45. Now, got to your EBBS.scripts and press control+F, and type 'unconditional' you'll need to scroll down a bit to where it says "unconditional player reforms something something "89" now edit that number to 45. (For some reason its 1 less than u actually need). Now save it and start up the game. Capture one more city and WALLA you have your marians. Hope that helps.

    Thanks. I think I did it correct. I haven't done it yet, so we'll see.

    But why is seleucid mentioned all over in the Roman reforms part of the script?

    Don't worry about it, it's something to do with all the new factions and having to swap hard-coded names or something.

    Me too, 90 cities are not that much. Ceterum censeo Romam esse delendam.

    Well, what's left to conquer after 90 cities? I thing rather 65-70 are enough, that means you have Spain, Gaul, Italy, West Africa, Greece up to Dacia.

    Go and play with more pikes. AS and Ptolies are your 'friends'. Also, if you have 90 cities, your empire is still small and have space to grow, especial as Romani. Ceterum censeo Romam esse delendam.

    Yeah, sure, to get to 90 you have to get Asia Minor, Syria + Egypt. So what's left after? That means you'll not have much space where to use your Marian Legions.

    You see, still enough room to expand. Ptolies and AS are still alive too. And the greatest city of all is still not under Roman control. Ceterum censeo Romam esse delendam

    Getting 90 cities with the polybian troops isn't that hard, but it is kind of a pain.
    If you try to do it the honest way make sure your general is a Plebeius, otherwise you'll NEVER get the Popularis trait... I haven't been able to do it despite some people on the forum saying they have. the hardest part I think is getting him to be a Consul. I think you basically just have to be in over 20-30 battles and have your general survive.

    Question Re: How to cheat and get Marian reforms?

    I tried to change the script as Vas recommened. It didn't work. I changed the "89" to a "45"; conquered 46 settlements but nothing. Any ideas?

    Go into the script file where all those scripts are for reforms and get out your delete button and give it a good once over in some key areas and boom, you got yourself some marians.

    Pshhhh, what kind of advice is that? This is a computer game we are talking about, if its not modifiable I think two, three times before I get it. Makes it much more fun and enjoyable as well as making it last longer.

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.
