Europa Barbarorum ~ RTW Modding Spotlight
Europa Barbarorum recently won the TWC 2018 Modding Awards Rome: Total War favourite mod category. Europa Barbarorum (EB) is perhaps the best known of all the total war mods and one of the very few mods with its own Wikipedia page. The mod was first released for RTW in 2005! Whilst some of the work on the mod franchise moved to EBII (for M2TW) the RTW mod has also continued development, with version 1.32 released in 2018.
The mod's dedication to historical accuracy is legendary and the user agreement for the mod also requests that you "Read more History".
Work on the mod is continuing with version 1.33 expected to add more than 60 new, historically attested units including chariots, cavalrymen, generals and updated siege engines. The new Celtic Ram covered with shields is shown below:
Visit the Europa Barbarorum hosted forum on TWC here to discuss the mod and congratulate the team.
Divide et Impera ~ Rome II Modding Spotlight
The winner of the combined 'Steel' section of the 2018 TWC Modding Awards was Divide et Impera, DEI took on other Rome II mods and mods from Attila and Thrones of Britannia and won by a substantial margin. DEI's team leader, Dresden, was also awarded joint first place in the Steel Favourite Modder category.
Divide et Impera is a total overhaul of Total War: Rome II that seeks to provide a challenging, historically accurate, realistic experience of the ancient world and warfare. The mod had its first release in 2013 and won both TWC's and Creative Assembly's awards for best Rome II Overhaul in 2014. The mod had a major update to version 1.2.4 which was released in December 2018, the update included a complete Battle Stats Overhaul based on KAM's Experimental Pack and a Campaign AI Overhaul by ScipioTheGreat and many other changes. Work in 2019 continued with a further update to version 1.2.4b, which, as well as balancing changes and bug fixes, adds 70 new ancillaries to the mod.
This August the mod released another major update to version 1.2.5, this includes a new playable faction and complete overhauls of units and rosters for Ardiaei, Medewi, Sparta & Pergamon factions, and really much too much to mention here! The unit shown above is the new Illyrioi Aristoi Hoplitai unit, one of 22 new units added to the Ardiaei. Download the latest version of DEI here.
Divide et Impera has an active hosted forum on TWC where you can discuss the mod, find advice and player manuals, and view the latest previews of upcoming releases. Visit the forum here.
