    Question EB 2, will it utilize the graphical system of m2tw

    Is it entirely possble for this to be achived? Cuz the new units are crazy good, just like poptarts (r). Also I think 2001: A Space Odyssey is Roman Polanski's best movie, Since it had alot to do with history.

    I think it is possible, but it will take a lot more effort because you would have to make more than one skin for each unit. But I'm not a modder (although I want to learn) so I don't know. Isn't 2001: a Space odyssey an old sci-fi movie? how is that historical? I love old sci-fi movies and books about our time though, they are kinda funny

    In theory yes as long as they make more skins and models for units to give them the "no-clone" look. In practice it should work, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    The less slave starting provinces the better in my opinion, so I will shout for "Yes!" for full number of factions in EB2.

    Back to the original question: we voted against it, MTW1 graphics look most likely, though STW sprites looked cool too.

    32 factions slots, which new factions do you think will be included?
    I'm hoping more barbarian tribes, as it makes it total chaos when 3 factions fight eachover for a province.

    Well I think these extra factions could be:
    Chatii
    Some Indian Faction
    Numidia (West)
    Numidia (East)
    Some form of Irish Tribe/Brigantes
    Tutones
    Cimbri
    Carnutes
    The People of Syracuse/Messena
    The Ligurians/The Boii
    The Bastarnae

    And possibly:
    Carthaginian Rebels
    Roman Rebels
    Eastern Greek Rebels
    Western Greek Rebels

    I doubt that the campaign map will extend any further than it already does. However I do suspect that their may be more provinces than there are in the RTW builds.

    Add Pergamon, to that. As long as the map is not extended further to the east you won't get to see an Indian faction, if we may believe what EB stated a while ago... That was as far as the team was concerned in regarding to 0.8, but given that the main Indian faction of that time seems to be the Mauryan Empire...

    If there are more provinces in the EB2 campaign map, then I guess there will be more in the Sahara desert and the Russian Steppes.

    It probably would be, but I guess the team won't include them, especially since the fact it will be hard to control the realism bit with China. China was at that time by far the most powerfull 'faction', yet it never conquered the Steppes in those days. However, in game it would either turn out that China conquers the Steppes every single game (not exactly realistic), or that the rebels need to be so strong that their earlier aim of limitting the number of rebel provinces is impossible.

    Hmmmmmm...

    It`s great if they increase the faction slots to 30...

    but it wouldn`t be so great if they mantain the province limit in 199, and don`t increase the available number of slots for skins and models...

    Somehow I doubt that a limited number of skins will be available, considering that each individual unit will have a variety of skins.

    Indians, unlikely, not enough of the area they lived in on the map. Why split Numidia in two? And Carnutes were subordinate to the Aedui, inhabitting Aulercia, part of the territory the Aedui effectively administered. Almost surely another Germanic faction, but I doubt Teutones (not definable early enough), probably Chatti I'd think.

    I don't see why spaces would be used for rebels like this really, when it could go to more factions. It's a big map, and there are a lot of places that could be filled in better without rebel factions.

    I'd like to see Brigantes, Hattoz (Chatti), Bononia (kingdom of Bohemian Boii), Pergamon, split Iberia into two different factions, Numidia, the Aitolian league or Syracuse, maybe Aquitania, and not certain what else.

    Historically there were two Numidan factions. The Lybians and what we commonly call Numidians. One supported Rome and the other supported Carthage in the Punic Wars.
