Hey man I made an account on this site just to tell you what a great job you did on this mod. This mod has extended my play time for many many hours and I've always meant to commend you on it. I just want to applaud you for not drastically overhauling any aspects of the game while adding so much interesting content.
I REALLY hope you could do something similar for M2TW, because there are just too many "build one building a turn and take several turns to plan the taking of a city, mods", which I find highly irritating. What sort of country only builds one building every 6-12 months???
Again, thanks for all your hard work on this.
I downloaded the greek mod XGM 5.8.26 OK. When i try to play the greek cities i click on the greek standard, to choose the faction I want to play as. Can anyone tell me how to resolve that. The mod does let me play the regional game as Syracuse though but i am having problems making any real headway in the game when it comes to making money and have resorted to sacking cities which is just bailing me out of the red. I also noticed that the towers in cities do not inflict as many casualties on attacking armies.
I am now downloading XGM 5.7.22 to see how that goes instead.
I did try another mod, i think that was version 4 and played as teh greeks but the game crashed in 247 BC, twice.
All in all the mods are great and add a much wider variety to the vanilla, keep up the good work
OK i messed up my last post. What i was trying to say I downloaded XGM 4 final, when i got 247 BC the game crashed twice. I played 5.8.26 and hwne i click on the greek standard to choose the faction i want to play as teh game crashes. I did play as syracuse on the same version. The game has also crashed on 5.7.22 when i choose to play as the greeks.
When i was playing as syracuse on EC/MB i could just about make ends meet, money wise and resorted to sacking cities which did not keep me out of the res. Also i noticed that the towers in cities do not inflict as many casualties on invading armies as in vanilla RTW and it takes a long time to inflict any casualties when my units are in hand to hand.
Any help you can give will be appreciated
I have v1.5 of RTW
first off, fantastic mod. I've been a fan of since the beginning and XGM is a must when ever i play rtw.
My only issue that thrace is now a barbarian faction. Is there any way I can change them back to a western faction?
In my opinion: Best Mod Ever
