The utility runs in parallel to your game, and includes support for the following features:
  • Changing the computer player's bonus starting resources
  • 1280x1024 resolution support
  • Changing the population cap
  • Changing the computer player's default personality

    Installation:
    Simply copy the utility to any location. When running the utility you will need to select the Rise of Rome executable and then configure your settings. You must save your changes before choosing to run the executable through the utility.

    Just to clarify, this utility will run the game for you.

    You will need the interfac.DRS from the 1280x1024 Resolution mod if you wish to use the resolution features.

    Description:
    A mod that allows for higher populations by changing the logistics technology in the Rise of Rome expansion.

    The logistics technology is now located in the town centre for a cost of 1000 food. Logistics will make all units (not just barracks units) worth a tenth of the population unit. Therefore, 10 units will count as 1 population.

    The author states there is a bug whereby Palmyran do not get logistics in the town centre. However, the technology is disabled for Palmyrans in the original game anyway so not sure if this is really a misunderstanding rather than a bug.

    Installation:
    You will need to replace the empires.dat file in your data2 directory with the file included in the download. Remember to backup your original file.

    Which of the two triple hit-point templates is the best one? They seem to appear around the same time, and following the discussions on the templates I am not sure if one has more bugs than the other. It looks like scenario_t_c's doesn't include the beta terrain, so possibly the only difference?
    I uploaded the one with the beta beach tiles too since that was not included when t_c uploaded the blank LCM template. Personally I find mine more useful because of the extra beta tiles, and you can always simply remove the ponds by generating a blank map anyways.

    Description:
    This mod provides the graphics for a new camel archer unit. The download comes complete with a set of SLPs:
  • attack
  • die
  • rot
  • stand
  • walk

    The graphics are a combination of the camel and horse archer therefore it will not look out of place against other units in the game.

    Installation:
    You will need to either replace existing or add the SLPs into your graphics.DRS file. You will probably need to make changes to the empires.DAT file too in order to support the new graphics.

    Remember to backup your original files beforehand.

    The mod has gone through a number of revisions and does look like a lot of work has gone into the mod.

    There are still bugs or unexplained features. I have had villagers turn into eagles, and the gold farm doesn't appear to do anything but add desert artefacts to the ground. You can still build the original buildings by using hotkeys (e.g. barracks is no longer visible in the villager's build options but the hotkey bypasses that).

    Installation:
    The installation comes compete with a batch file. However, the batch file makes several assumptions that are incorrect on modern operating systems and/or installing the original game in a location other than its default.

    You can manually install the game by replacing your empires.DAT files in both data and data2 directories. You will also need to replace the language.dll and languagex.dll files.

    Remember to backup your original files.

    Project Thread

    Description:
    A mod that allows you to recreate and play large ancient battles. Inspired by war games with figurines, you can play at a low speed to allow for greater control over tactics.

    The mod includes support for 1280x1024 resolution and a required utility that will slow your game down to the correct pace.

    The mod comes with the following:
  • Battle of Gaugamela
  • Battle of Issus
  • Battle of Pharsalus
  • Battle of Raphia

    It is recommended that you play the game using the utility. This will allow you to control your very large army. In normal speeds there are just too many units on the map to deal with effectively.

    The mod itself comes in the form of French (the author's language) so you have to use your memory to figure out which button to press in order to open the scenarios menu! All units are also named in French.

    The mod comes complete with a detailed guide that has been translated into English.

    Installation:
    You will need to overwrite the original game files with the files included in the download. You can choose whether to use the 1280x1024 resolution by running the suitable executable. The download also includes a set of scenarios and scenario template. These go into your scenario directory.

    Remember to backup your original files.

    I will add Zappy's composite editor here. I left it out originally as wanted to keep scenario design separate, but after a rethink it seems suitable to add it here.

    I also need to go through some more mod submissions.
