    Default Vanilla Extended Mod

    Why hello there!

    Vanilla Extended Mod (VEM) aims to follow in the footsteps of the bestest mod ever for Medieval 2: Total War, Vanilla Mod, by Factionheir.

    Its concept, is to keep the vanilla gameplay intact, but to fix any bugs that may come out, as well as adding in new lands. The core mod will be kept small, so it won't be adding new units or factions, just fixes and a bigger map!

    And if I get someone offering to do units or something, maybe a few cool new units.

    Expect gameplay to be harder, units to be balanced and Australia.

    G'day mate,
    pever.

    BEST MOD EVER! And it hasn't even been released yet.

    May I suggest following in the footsteps of bigmap and Regions and Provinces by enlarging the map and then using the limitless number of provinces allowed to make the game truly huge!

    Imagine the possiblities with no hardcoded region limit!

    I'd also like to see some of the small islands and island chains made into provinces. Such as the Bahamas, much of the Caribbean and places like the Hebrides and Svalbard. Not to mention Indonesia!

    If you need help with writing flavor text such as unit descriptions and similar stuff then I can help. I can also edit CA's text for grammar and spelling.

    This mod will be the best.

    Yes, the aim is to eventually add all the world. It will, unfortunately, most likely be populated with a-historical units (anti-historical?) as I don't think implementing entire factions is something we can do easily.

    Once getting a feel for the map, that will decide if it needs to be bigger or not.

    If they are in the game, sure why not.

    As for my actual meaning, I had meant just...I can explain in RTW terms.

    Image if I added Australia to RTW, instead of making a new faction, I would just fill it with low level basic units, that don't fit the theme and would not be there in history. Just so they are not empty cities.

    Nah, if you're going to include Australia you've gotta make uber cheat kangaroos! (yes, with rocket launchers).

    Surely you mean with rocket boomerang launchers.

    Well if we have American indians, they could stand in for Aboriginies vaguely. Better then having musketmen down there anyhow.

    I mean the aboriginies never organized at all to resist colonial aims, but for gameplay sake.

    They werent happy about it, but they couldn't do much. There was still fighting.

    I believe they were shouting "Go away! Go away!" when the british were landing.

    I thought there was one or two battles or at least larger scale skirmeshes with the aboriginies?

    Also, will you at least be adding historical personalities? Much like in the kingdoms expansion?

    I like the idea of this mod...

    So if CA (or third party developoers) make it easy to add new units, 3d models etc. then I'm willing to do some of the art for you.

    Secondly, have you thought of adding Japan and/or the rest of Asia?

    How about making each turn only 3 months, like on EB?

    I have no desire to have a 400 turn game.

    Nor to double build times.

    Fair enough, but on the other hand, if you're adding loads of regions, you need time to conquer them all.....

    Hi there tsubame.

    We have a subforum located at: https://forums.totalwar.org/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=275

    Work is slow at the moment, but may speed up in the future, if official modding tools are released and I don't have to redo all the work every time the game patches.
