*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.
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!

When it comes to units, there is very little I think needs to be done. Balancing seems fine (from what I've seen), I just have a different preferance on health, range, stuff like that.
The idea is great though! Before long, this will probably be a solid 5.
I think you do need to expand the the economy and pop value more. Also, maybe make all units (ranged) have more realistic ranges and have less health (quicker, more realistic deaths). I'm working on a mod, Hyper Realism, which does this. You can use that if you want for ideas.
Once again, great concept, great job so far, and I love this time period. Sparta!
