    Outstanding. I only had a brief look on the making-off, but it shows the insane amount of work and dedication, which make this project more than just a video game.

    Now we all expect to admire your excellent work in the next preview not to mention the release of the mod...
    I believe fans should pray for your health and desire to work Gustave

    Yes, I believe that you are the "Indian Chief" my friend.

    Fans will not sleep for days when EBII will be in public. And then you will also be "Chief of.........."

    Well this is a pleasant surprise. :)

    It's great to get a faction that plays a bit differently from the others, and doesn't have the same military as their neighbours, and opens up a new area of the strategic map. Along with the Bosporian Kingdom, this is one of the factions that's got me really enthusiastic.

    As for that bloody symbol. I figured the Occultus symbol for a humped bull, but I thought ancient bulls were straight backed and humps were bred in later so it couldn't be. I guess India is different. Damn, so close...

    Really amazing guys. Congrats to the team, awesome work. And it seems from what I see in the video that you fixed the issue with the shields held horizontically in the roman preview. The infantry charge loks amazing!

    An also the phalanx that gets massacred looks really nice. You used the non- uniformity feature of the game like noone else has so far!!

    Congrats!!!

    I liked to see how the persian empire was significant, the indian army organization is also very impressive...
    The Gadāhasta Yoddhṛ look amazing ^^

    I had my mind set about which faction to pick first, but now :D

    As a military history enthusiast, and one with a growing interest in ancient history -- fueled, of course, by my obsession with EUROPA BARBARORUM -- it's research like this, and its integration into EB, that makes it so much more than a game.

    My sincere thanks to the EBII Development Team, and those here on the forum, that continue to help me learn about a great period in history.
    Thank you! Going through books and journal databases on the hunt for good articles and citations is a tough job sometimes, but it is very rewarding when people read and appreciate all the work and energy one puts into it.

    It's not fair. When this masterpiece is released in the coming months and you guys will be playing it 24/7, I will be doing my military service (yeah it's compulsory in my country...). And while you will be fighting with phalanxes and naked dudes with falxes and elephants with face paint, I will be given a stupid rifle. I want a sarissa damn it!

    Needless to say that the work invested in this mod puts to shame many professional game producers.

    the only good news about this new factions is that now the indian lands will be even easyer to conquer with the great hellenistic baktrian elam and it will be easyer to put those hedonistic barbaric cowards in their place oh the joy of hearing grown men screaming like litle kids run the yavanas are coming mwuahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    now im going to read the preview

    Yes a great surprise and these previews are looking more and more epic. As I watched the video to this one I realised that I will have to upgrade, um, overhaul my PC to give EBII the love it deserves.

    Now that I've also readed every single bit of bit I must say that I'm completely amased by all the quantity and quality of the information here (and I gess that its only a bit of the iceberg that will be in the actual game!
    The bards shall sing tales of EB's Team awesomeness for ages to come! And everyone will think they'll be exagerating

    Just finished watchin the trailer, and I get the impression of Taksashila being the getai of the east, lightly armoured but packs a hell of a punch with lots of AP-units. I will love playing EB II!

    so after reading most of it i have nothing else to say than: brilliant!

    Wehrhaft uns der Gegner schau,

    Yes that's it. They have little to no armour, and therefore are very vulnerable to bows and javelins, but they have AP units and also good archers.

    They also reming me of the numidians due to their lot of unharmoured troops and relying in missiles, elephants and chariots. Can't wait to do a Taksashila vs Mamla'ha biMassylim with Garamantine chariots custom battle

    In awe as always. I can't wait for future previews to be released. Oh yeah, and the mod itself of course.

    To the amazing work and dedication of the EB team I raise my glass.
    From Frontline for fixing siege towers of death
    x30 From mikepettytw for showing how to edit in game text.
    From Brennus for wit.

    Will there be any representation of high lethality weapons despite of the lack of lethality itself in the engine?

    Sure i don't mind, and thank you for praises and also for constructive criticism.
    It depends, there are many who prefer more shots with "walking", i call it unit intro, and some, more fighting.
    What i can promise, is that in future movies i will try to do the same amount of time for the "walking" and for the fighting parts.
