Why are anons so insistent that a Total War 40k would be "impossible"? Just look at pic related, it was called Epic 40k and is a literal variant of the tabletop game made by GW, and fits perfectly with the Total War gameplay. Besides, CA has already said they'd "love to" do a Total War game set in the 40k universe.

Gunpowder warfare doesn't work in current TW either. CA changed the shooting system in Rome 2 and kept it since even for WH, which is why gunpowder units in that don't function any different to other missile infantry. It's also why there's now ugly missile trails and missiles don't have the 'impact' they used to, combined with other changes like switching to healthbars etc.
Nothing works in Modern TW. Everything is barely stitched together. Shut the fuck up, niggerfaggot.

Talked about this earlier today, A Wargame or Steel Division clone would be the proper scale for a 40k game.
Fuck gunpowder vs non-gunpowder. These two know whats up >>707250 >>709069

Can you imagine the engine being reworked to make actual real troop transports AND deep diving by the devs for this engine? They don't even place down real trees for WHFB.
if whoever these guys are could make my childhood great with whatever bullshit this engine is held together with then surely a dev could blend overworld map with 40k battles

Honestly, it really seems overpriced even by Paradox standards.

Stop asking Paradox to add fluff, they already struggle to add decent mechanics into their games so just let modders add the extra stuff.
>Stop asking Paradox to add fluff
What the fuck is the point of adding a language if it doesn't impact the names? At best it is a minor opinion modifier, the opinion system is already shit and adding more bullshit like this doesn't help.
arent names dependent on culture/religion? Many muslims name their kids ali or mohammed even if they arent arab.
Cultures have names, some of those names are religion locked.
The easiest way would give each language a variation of each religious name.
They're not doing a great job of it though.

>all Romance languages are just Latin
>the Slavic languages are divided by region
>in 1066

And even on a system level it seems like the languages don't actually do anything - no text or localizations key off of them, they're just an opinion penalty if you need a translator.

>just let modders add
Names per language are not likely to be something modders can add. Paradox needs to build the system for that, and the easiest way (thus, is the one they'll almost certainly take) would be to just slap names into the aesthetic section (as they already said they would) and not do any more work on that.

Correct. It's just opinions. It exists to support the DLC, since you'll need it to learn new languages.

Med 2 is the only Total War game I still play regularly, and I own most of them. Shogun 2 isn't bad, it just has a lot of questionable decisions that are the seeds of really bad decisions going forward (automatic troop replenishment, limited building slots, insanely buffed agents, etc).

Med 2 has jank, but it's good ideas jankily implemented, whereas later TW games are bad ideas badly executed.
>tfw no silmarillion TW ever
I think somebody tried to do that for Rome 1, but I don't know if it was ever finished. I think it was called Arda Total War.

what's the best romance of the three kingdoms game for a new player?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Use a random number generator. Every installment has people saying it's the best and the worst ever.
How is 11 the worst?
It's the most bare bone one with boring combat and ruler only mode.
Depends what you like. If you like roleplaying/working your way up through the ranks/the ability to play as a nobody, X is widely considered to be the best. XI is widely considered to be the best of the ruler-only games, but overall, there's no perfect ROTK game. All of them do some things well and other things poorly. I still play VII, VIII, XI, X, XI and XIII for that reason.

It also has to do with the fact that Longs and Named are not well adjusted individuals.
Most of the ways to become a Long and almost all the ways to become a Named corrupt people since to some extent it's about becoming a one dimensional single purpose being like a Greek Mythological Character. And out of all the aspects of the Manasus only Heart and Grail followers would even want to have kids and Grails are just massive perverts who would eat their own kid for the thrill and Hearts would justify as it being for their own good.

Hi, I'm currently planing to do a England game where I PU France and get the Burgundian Inheritance for a massive headstart on anyone. However I found that Burgundy always rivals me and I for some reason never eclipse them, even though I have 4 times more dev than them. Any suggestions besides restarting 20 times?

You can always just beat them up and force them to unrival you. If you have the age bonus, you can also easily transfer his dutch vassals to yourself

What exactly is a multi factory?
Like the Chemical Plant from the tourist DLC, it's a building where you can change what type of good it produces. It's just a way for the devs to make more production chains without making any new models. They're also not classified as production buildings for some reason so they're not affected by trade unions.

SMAC? There was a thread on this board made for "quick" strategy games a couple of months ago but I've lost the link.
Couple of nights

Thanks SMAC anon I will check archives
yeah, for traditional 4x shouldn't take that long, try SMAC, Old World is a new one too, Oriental Empires is pretty great
neither should take TOO long, and don't have much of a boring endgame, but obviously are much better when you have "friends" to play with
King of Dragon Pass/Six Ages are great and incredibly unique if you're in the mood for "lighter" but still super engaging strategy games. KODP in particular can still be brutally difficult but it moves along nicely.

I just installed the invisible orb on every one of my guys and rushed every boss, all would drop dead within a turn or two. Playing the game efficiently kind of drops the fun. Still, very stylish.
Those both sound like dogshit, get your ears checked.
10/10 music (matter of taste but only a retard wouldn't love this one)
8/10 sound design
3/10 level design (boring generic dungeons, the only variety comes in colors and enemy types)
6/10 core gameplay (it feels very easy to use, is fairly intuitive but once you understand what *works* it is easily exploited. It might be more interesting with spiking up the difficulty level, which is highly customizable, and using self-imposed challenges)
40k/10 atmosphere (if you are a fan of WH you are going to cream yourself playing this, unless your skub lies elsewhere as far as the lore is concerned)

Biggest flaw: no multiplayer

Out of all the drivel I've read on this site, this is possibly the worst thing. The music is rad and basically perfect.
I'm actually playing through it right now on Hard, is 25% awakening by 12 missions bad?
Kickass so far. I much prefer it over XCOM; overwatch creep was so damn boring and I like how they completely cut hit chance in favor of properly managing your unit's health bars. It seems mostly fair but a little undertuned, enemies are kinda dumb and don't do much other than shoot you, and pumping up the difficulty just bumps their HP and reduces rewards which isn't any fun.
Probably the best WH40k game so far (not exactly a fan but I've been following the world) it's just unfortunate that GW is a scummy company and won't let more people flex their creativity.

Daisenryaku is a Japanese strategy game. It is the godfather of Panzer General and pretty cool. I got the shit kicked out of me trying to Typhoon during the winter and now I'm trying the Japanese campaign.

The first two missions are at Khalkhin Gol, first driving the Mongolians out and then counter-attacking the Soviets. Mission 3 is Pearl Harbor, but the player has only 10 turns to achieve a Complete Victory.

lel, I may have inadvertently crushed Zhukov's army. I'm going to do my best to deal with the Soviets and then turn my full attention to the British and Americans.
If I can just close in around his base so he can't spawn shit I can probably take him out.
Alright, I'm going to pause here for tonight. The Allies aren't going to be quite so easy to deal with.
Hell yeah.

Just finished Desperados 3 and enjoyed it a lot. Haven't played an real time tactical games since Shadow Tactics and I find myself suddenly craving for such titles. Has anyone tried Partisans 1941? It looks like one of those Commandos-esque games as well.
I'm interested in this as well. Love tight real time tactics games, from Fallout Tactics to Men of War to Shadow Tactics.
Tried out Partisans, and it's pretty good. Attacking enemies head on is quite viable as long you position your units properly so you don't have to resort to pure stealth takedowns all the time. The base management and resource gathering don't seem to add all that much though from the looks of it.
Stealth RTT is a rather underpopulated category. You have the Commandos series, Desperados series, Robin Hood, Chicago 1930, and the ones you mentioned.
Games by Best Way provide a similarly stealthy experience but are more focused on combat rather than trick abilities. I also vaguely remember something called Shadow Company.
Haven't played Partisans but there's another WW2 game coming out next month called War Mongrels. Apparently it's going to have online co-op.
forgot to mention there's a mission set in a concentration camp that has tons of bodies piled up.
