    You only get hoplites as KH (Maybe you could build some local barracks in Pella). Or hire mercs

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    There's a trigger for KH Phalangites. It's like a reform.

    March of Time. Romani must build a huge city in Italy besides Rome (hard coded reform).

    It takes a while before the reforms happen, but when they do, they'll make the battlefield pretty interesting. I didn't get any notification that he reforms took place. One turn, I just looked at my recruitment and noticed a brand new unit, just waiting to be recruited. On to Asia Minor!

    If you even push the romans too hard they might take a lot longer to get a huge city beside Rome in Italy. The AI only upgrades cities after it runs out of other construction options in that city. (I think some buildings are an exception from this rule; never saw an AI city with extensive trading port upgrades yet). If it is constantly recruiting units and mercenaries it may during some rounds not have the cash left to keep building in all cities. This will slow down the development of the italian cities. If you want to get by those reforms really fast, try typing >>process_cq "Capua"<< into the console once every round and see to it that you don't have any direct border contact with SPQR.

    Mmm dammit, i tried to avoid any wars with the romans, but they started, they wanted a ceasefire and one turn afterwards they blockaded one of my ports, so that means if i completely take the romans out of italy, i wont be able to get those phalangites??

    Nope. One way to 'fix' this problem of yours, would be to go to the EDB text file and look for the phalangites, then delete the line where it says: and marian_reforms. This way, you can get your units without having to wait till the MoT hits

    In my Makedonian Campaign a pushed the Romani out of Italy and upgraded their cities to Huge (greek culture) then i used Force Diplomacy and gave them one of the huge cities (it was Arretium). Next round i could recruit my Hysteroi Pezhetairoi which are also triggered by the March of Time.

    I always thought that the Romani need to upgrade the city to Huge, but i worked this way to.

    Da's white wabbit.
    Maybe you want them to build a huge city north of rome though (I resent having huge cities of foreign cultures in my victory condition area because of culture penalties and Capua is one of the places you have to own eventually as KH IIRC). Was that one called "Arpi"? But even so, you'd have to do some "cheats"
    (console, then type >>add_population "Capua" -2000<< without the ">>" and "<<")
    as Capua has more starting population than the city of the province "Etruria" and the script always gives the AI any population used up in unit recruitment back every turn.
    Try to keep a "buffer state" between yourself and rome, maybe by taking their border cities and letting them rebel. Note: The builder faction of the government building determines where the city will rebel to so you may have to move some population there and build a higher level of governor's palace before you can make them declare unilateral independence.


    *EDIT*
    Wow, I was still writing during the last two posts, so no need for my cumbersome method...
    Thanks Zett!!

    Sir Zett, you are most cunning I'll try this myself as well. If this works, we Rômaioi-haters will finally be able to crush the Barbaroi without having to wait for the MoT.

    I would say: be at least somewhere between 240 and 200 BC (depending on whether you play fast or slow) and lost a fight as the KH to a phalanx army.

    Well officially the romans already lost most of their Italia holdings to my armies, since i didnt wanted to have any civil revolts or anything like that i enslaved most of their towns, so anyways if i modify the edb text file would that be save game compatible or i will have to start my campaign??right now im really enjoying my kh campaign, and i really didnt wanted to have a war against the Romans but well you guys know that an alliance for the AI is not that important so, ill try to modify that text file after my shift is over and im at my place and ill let you guys know if that worked, but i want to thank everyone for their creative responses!!

    To make the Koinon Hellenon Phalangitai recruitable go to the "export_descr_buildings" file in your EB/data and search for "hellenistic infantry koinon phalangitai", then delete the "and marian_reforms" at the end of the line. You have to delete it for every "hellenistic infantry koinon phalangitai" entry. That makes at all 26 "and marian_reforms" you have to delete.

    !BUT FIRST! make a BackUp of the file

    IIRC its savegame compatible.

    Changing edb is save game compatible too. Adding the italy resource to any settlement in Romani hands and letting it turn huge should work.
    I did the same in my current campaign (see the last few posts in the city mod thread).

    Pluss those who always intend to crush any faction under the yelow earth because they dared to attack him. (twice even if he revives them in the meantime but I once did it thre times in a row - no idea which faction that was)
