*You MUST play as these factions for the mod to work properly.
NOTHING TO OVERWRITE :) EXCEPT overwrite the interface.xml & soundfiles.xml file in your T&P data directory with the ones i've provided, this will make the icons and sound work properly...back them up of course.....I will have an installer in the next version so that this problem is completely fixed. then just simply pop it into your mods folder in the Thrones and Patriots directory and copy and paste my sounds into your game's "sounds" folder in the main RON directory.
THE MOD ONLY WORKS IN THE CLASSICAL AGE. So far we have 5 playable factions with completely unique looking armies. Everything is historically accurate and units are named according to their Greek and Latin names. Wonders can only be built by the factions who actually built them. Technology-specific houses can be built that can provide your faction with troops. Lower-class housing can provide conscripted/peasant/militia troops...while the upper class Villas can provide you with your factions strongest units. Barracks', stables, siege factories and forts can only be unlocked starting at military level 5 and can provide your faction with professional troops....while the houses can be unlocked through ascending civic research. No patriots, at least for now. Some factions have generals however, that provide added benefits. Supply wagons heal troops. Dust cloud effects have been enhanced and the Gunpowder era building set has replaced the Classical Age building set as it looks more Roman/Greek.
PLEASE REPORT BUGS......go easy on the reviews too this is just an elementary release. Please also tell me how you feel about balancing and the gameplay....I need your ideas. With your feedback we can make this an awesome mod. Please leave constructive feedback though. And if you want to use my stuff please give me credit, it took a lot of hard work to put this together. Thanks for your help.
Did you re-download? I re-uploaded for the 3rd time. Try re-downloading it.

Sorry to bother you!! Its not really that big a problem and this is probably the fifth time ive downloaded it but no difference is made, nothing shows up.
But PLEASE don't worry about uploading it again! I'll try to get to the bottom of this little bug. Has it worked fine for you??
Apart from that the mod is absolutely BRILLIANT!! Its my favourite ancient mod/game because of the wide unit range, something I was hoping you would do so yep 5/5 (see rating below)

Wow this mod has blown me away! Even with only 5 nations it feels like a full mod.
Additional Comments: Is there anything else to say apart from 'this is brilliant'? sadly, no. I believe this is one of the few mods that really changes RON and makes it a better game. This is the sort of thing that has made me come back to RON and like it more than ever. Congratulations Uthum on your perfect mod! As I've said before, I cannot wait for the finished mod! WOW!

hmm Super you are right......it is not working for some reason. In the interface xml file the file path for the icon's tga files is set to the mods folder so in theory it should work and it doesn't when i try it on a different computer I don't get it.
OK last trick......overwrite the interface.xml file in your T&P data directory with the one i've provided...back it up of course. And thank you so much for the review.

And adding on to my review: I like it how it is so easy to install the mod. With your other mod I've had to move things all around but this is much easier. A bit of advice: I wouldn't give your buildings unique icons so you can play the outside game without seeing any changes. It's a good idea to add a new i_face file because nothing gets overwritten.
And big news... I got it to work! The icons are brilliant and the only changes I'll see outside the mod will be a strange Versailles icon. YAY! Thank you so much!

I also love the Centurion unit for the Romans. Hes pretty much a hero because most units he can kill with one strike so its really fun to have battles. Who do the other nations have as their elite unit? I've been doing a battle but I can't find the other nations' elite units!
