Question about Rome Total War II

volboundvolbound Posts: 4Registered Users
I got Rome Total War II and I am loving it. The Empire Divided and Augustus scenarios are great. The base campaign has been a little weak, however.

One item that I would like to see improved for the base campaign is Greece. Where is the Achaean and Aetolian leagues? There isn't enough cities in Greece to do it justice. I feel like Thermon and the Aetolian League plus Patras and the Achaean league should have been present. Also perhaps Corinth and/or Thebes.

Is there a mod out there that adds some of these cities without changing the rest of the map? I honestly think the other areas of the map are great, including the East. Some of the new Rome Total War I scenarios for Greece were brutal because they added too much cities and messed with the units too much for my taste.

A few other minor items that bugged me a little with the main campaign as well:

1. Most civs not having the ability to make archer units which limits the strategy
2. Seleucids not owning Seleucia (lower Iraq) directly.
3. Rome owning Magna Greece but not the Estrucans (I think the opposite happened in history)

However Greece is my main concern as Athens and Sparta (and to some degree Macedon and Epirus) are kind of unplayable without these other city states to conquer and fight with.

    No one responded to this? Is there not a more Greek Centric mode out there that expands Greece. The other regions of the world have it right but Greece was not well done to meet the historical situation of the area for that time. Rome Total War 1 had the right city count and arrangement for Greece, they just didn't have the factions down due to limited number of factions.

    Only thing I can suggest is maybe playing the DLC campaign "Wrath of Sparta" to satisfy your thirst for Greek action. Other than that, there is no mod for that sort of thing (since it's not possible, at least at present). There aren't any official plans to expand Greece with new settlements in the Grand Campaign - the map is already huge as it covers the whole of Europe + North Africa + parts of Asia and there's no room to fit them without expanding the rest of the map, which would be an even bigger task.

    Currently working on a whole lot more, stay tuned.

    Understand but it is kind of frustrating that they added all these barb factions that I never heard of but left off most of Greece which was the singular power before Rome:

    1. No Aetolian League
    2. No Achaean League
    3. No Corinth
    4. No Delphi
    5. No Thebes

    The Greece in Rome Total War 1 was larger.
