ScriptingROME REMASTERED now supports the ability to have a background script assigned to a mod that doesn’t require any user intervention to enable. The scripting system has also been extended to allow for more flexibility.Over 200 new events, commands and controls added to the scripting dictionary. Highlights include:Support for persistent variables that are stored inside the player’s save gameAdding/removing hidden resourcesMaintain event context from an event monitor within that scopeDestroying any buildings including Governors’ buildings & wallsRestrict events to AI or player using ‘is_player’ conditionCheck is a building exists in your home settlement using ‘HomeSettlementBuildingExists’SettlementCapabilityLevel – query the capability levels of a settlementSupport reveal_tile in ROME REMASTERED/Barbarian InvasionTrigger a command for_each item of a particular typeDedicated verbose log file for debugging scripts, outputs triggers, warnings and error messagesDocumentation for all the various commands/conditions/events available to scripts can be found in VFS/Local/Rome/documentation.When the world script finishes keep it intact (unless explicitly terminated by the user) and continue to update monitorsFormat expanded to allow braces and add logging, to make it clearer what’s happening inside scripts
New & Updated FilesThe following features are now exposed to modders:Reputation and Relationship bonuses are now moddableBuilding Features:Added a new building bonus that allows adding increasing a settlement’s construction and recruitment pointsModders can use is_player to define building availability to human or AI factionsModders can define icons used for building browser subtypesUnit Features:“inexhaustible” disables stamina for a given unit“infinite_ammo” disables ammunition counters for a given unitModdable graphics settings:Graphics settings are now moddable by adding a graphics_options.json file to the root of the modding folderAllow mods to force settings for Classic/Remastered togglesCombined FEDU and EDU files for simpler modding of unitsDifferent campaigns defined in descr_campaigns.txt can now refer to a different data/terrain/campaign folder, to provide the campaign map with a seperate visible tile systemResources are now virtually unlimited and moddable; resources now support custom icons, models & resource types, and can be combined with script triggers and traitsCertain aspects of AI personalities are now moddable
There still arent any mods
>>693882they will come, now with Feral staying by their word, and further improvements to modding and AI.
Give me Lotr mod
the updates to the game in general are good never mind modding, we honestly don't deserve feral. if they do M2 and Empire i'll be set for life.
>>693910im legit excited for a possible M2 release. they would have the experience of R1, and since they are the same engine, they would be able to do a lot better the second time around.
I know this will never happen, but I really hope for a drm-free version of this remaster dropping on gog or something.
>>693910>remastered EmpireDon’t give such false hope Anon…
>>693910Honestly I'd be happy if they fixed all the stuff that doesn't work in M2, can't stand playing it anymore.
>>693882Why? Isn't the game as easily moddable as the old one?
>>693855I apologise. I doubted you. All you've done however, is wipe the slate clean after what you did to me with Rome 2 back in 2013.
>>694080yes but, all the modders have moved onto med 2. you would still have to do some work to port it over and nobody is going to port over old mods unless they are making new ones. its still only been some months since release, mods take time.
>>693855Hey, cool. But I still want M2TW remastered
Have they fixed the horrible UI yet?
Are the faction and unit numbers still locked?
The problem is that the major modders for RTW have either moved on or retired. I wish we would see a Fourth Age or EB remastered port, but I don’t think anyone is interested in doing it.
>>694146idk about faction but read here>>693875
>>693855The UI is still bad, but other than that it was always a good remaster, didn't deserve the flak it got imo.
>>693875It's perfect now...
>>693856yeah ... i spent longer than 150 turns starting the civil war and that means butchering up to 50 stacks of romans (that's like 150,000 men wew)
>>693855I loved Rome Remastered from the day it was released. Made me realize just how stripped a dumbed down modern TW is.
>>693855dont care, still playing the original rome
>>694098>nobody is going to port over old modsIf all you have to do is copy and paste model folders and text entries it would be a quick way to have mods fast until the really new stuff comes around, but I'm no expert. just did a little modding in M2, learning to mod in attila and don't even own the remaster to take a look.
>>694236>If all you have to do is copy and paste model folders and text entrieyes but nobody wants to do that.
I'm a W7 chad
Already liked the remaster on its own, but Feral has gone above and beyond to lost to the community and add things. I wish CA wasn't CA so they would give these chads Medieval 2.
>>693875>>693877>>693878I'm rocking fucking solid reading this. This is exactly what's needed to revitalize the modding scene, let alone making the game more interesting to play.
>>694271>I wish CA wasn't CA so they would give these chads Medieval 2.who knows, might be a possibility. despite poor sales, it might still be easy profit for CA to have med 2 remastered by feral again.
remind me again what the point of a med 2 remaster would be, if the rome remaster surpasses it in every way in modding now? just a different setting? i mean without its modding capabilities, what advantage does med 2 have for being remastered? what new features are badly needed in rome 1 remaster that you need to remaster med 2?
Is Volound already bitching about this?
>>694383desu Med 2 could really do with the updated controls and general QoL like click-dragging formations and whatnot, also this latest update for Rome Remastered just effectively lifted a lot of limits for the campaign map modding so modders can get as autistic as they want with historically-accurate map layouts. There is an issue with the way the game is coded where crumbling walls can tank FPS on the modern hardware for some people (myself included). Also, a fix for the 2-handed weapons bug would be great.
>>694493Oh, and this would be the perfect opportunity to finally give each faction their own proper voice lines instead of having to recycle them. Right now in Med 2 we have Scandinavians with Russian accents, Irish with the Scottish voice and Welsh who sound like pompous Englishmen, it's just silly and a disappointing limitation of Med 2.
>>694392His subreddit seems to be pretending like it didn't happen, suspiciously quiet on the matter. They're probably waiting for Volound's spin on it to start voicing opinions.
>>694493I understand med 2 still has issues but what im trying to understand is, why not simply create a medieval mod on the remaster? Like mechanically speaking, med 2 is not all too different from rome 1. >pope>castles>forts?>different recruitmentwith the remaster, now pretty much on par and possibly will even be better than med 2, a remaster of med 2 seems pointless as a mod set in medieval times will be sufficient enough. >>694495lol his stream on launch was so retarded. nitpicking every detail and complained that it was the fault of the remaster, when apart from the UI, all pathfinding and faulty AI was as the same in rome OG.
>>694383Unless you want to port all M2 stuff to R1 remastered, M2 would stick out as one of the most unpolished games left, if all its shit was fixed it would still be a nice enough game, as it is it's a pain to play it.
>>693877>Support for persistent variables that are stored inside the player’s save gamecant believe that wasn't a thing before, I pity the modders of the past
Can you port M2 stuff into R1 remaster?
>>694509>I understand med 2 still has issues but what im trying to understand is, why not simply create a medieval mod on the remaster?Might technically be possible, but I'm really not convinced that any modders would even bother with such a project right now considering many people are assuming they're just going to make a Med 2 remastered and this would render their hard work invalid. Maybe if a lot of time goes by and it becomes obvious such a remaster isn't going to happen we'll see something like it.
i really hope feral remasters medieval 2 as well
ok, but can I play it on windows 7 now?
>>694680No, and you never will, and future PC games will continue phasing out Windows 7 support and eventually Windows 10 support after 11 is adopted by enough people.
>>694681gay, I hope feral goes out of business because of this
wow, another shill making a thread on a shit cashgrab remaster
>>694746If talking about moddability is shilling then M2 is full of shills as well.
>>694746wow, another bitch whose pot ran out. dont worry 1st of the month AND another government stimulus are on the way! you can re-up soon
>>694791>>694793No need for that buddy, the Fitgirl repack is free after all
>>694825Then it makes even less sense to complain about shilling you retard
>>694682>>694680retarded faggot>using windows 7>not using linux
>>694837>not having one partition for Winblows 10 and one for LinuxPoorfags gtfo.
So they actually made it competent now and I'M the one suppose to apologize to them?!I swear gamers are virtual drug addicts.
>>694937no, they did what they were always going to do but retarded doomers like you were in doubt
>still shitty non optional new ui>faction limit still not raised Meh
>>694957Why didn't they do it BEFORE they released it?
>>694984idk karen maybe call the manager and ask
>>694984they did it now. you will always find some way to get all twisted up over a great remaster like your master volund. now all thats left is the faction limit and that WILL be raised like promised.
>>694993>>695010And I thought /totalshitholereddit was simping.So now we just accept broken games coming out with the HOPE that they will get fixed?>the absolute state of the total war community.
Is there any mod for the old or remastered R:TW that increases the amount of buildings and units that you can build at a time in any city, sort of like Med 2 does with castle upgrades? Because that strikes me as a way to make the game a lot faster and more in line with reality.
>>695066>So now we just accept broken games coming out with the HOPE that they will get fixed?remastered was never a broken game on release. it was rome 1, with a new ui and better performance as promised on release by feral with minimal changes to AI. they never said they would have the new modding caps or a reworked AI on release. retarded doomers like you then said that they will never raise the caps or fix the AI but as seen here>>693875>>693877>>693878not only have they raised the caps, they made them practically unlimited which was far beyond any initial expectations. i imagine when they reveal the new faction cap, it will exceed expectation as well. they have also done changes to battle AI and will keep improving it, along with modding capabilities.all you have left is volund and coping that its a bad remaster.
>>693878>Added a new building bonus that allows adding increasing a settlement’s construction and recruitment pointsOh, this is what I was looking for. Ho!
It's still shit.The map looks like a mobile game,and they should have left the ui alone.
>>693875Too bad CA didn't do this 12 years ago or so.
>>695086I never said they wouldn't do those things because I never said they would not. Don't assume to get an empty own. I am not Volund or a Volund fan.I just watched the RTW Remaster footage and it was NOT appealing. Plus that UI is absolute crap!Am I glad they are fixing things and going 'above and beyond expectations'? Of course. Only a stubborn fool would be unchanging in his opinion.But those 'expectations' feel above and beyond because CA (and yes Feral worked on it, but CA still oversees it) has gotten the fanbase so used to releasing stripped products that they then retroactively reinsert 'new' or 'needed' features that should have been there in the first place.And I am suppose to clap and take it, otherwise CA might take away my fix?!Again:>the absolute shitty state of the total war fanbase.Fuck you! I'm not apologizing.
>>694236For small-scale mods it might work, but any total conversion would most likely require a ton of script rewriting to work the way it did.
>>694509>all pathfinding and faulty AI was as the same in rome OGI've played plenty of original rtw within the past couple years and I know that's not true. Remaster has some weird battle map behavior of its own.
>>695143The expectations feel above and beyond CA because CA releases buggy, unfinished games and never fixes them. CA also seems to have a dim view of modding support. The fact that Feral actually released a substantial patch doing what they promised to do and that patch has real modding support is utterly un-CA.
>>694984Because CA almost certainly forced them to rush it out before the warhammer 3 marketing period
well i guess they cared enough to patch the rerelease of the game that essentially put them on the map.
Would EB2chads devs ditch M2 in favour of Rome:R?
Did they ever fix the horrific UI though?
>>695289def not, they are too far deep in med 2. the whole reason the devs didnt want to go back is that med 2 had scripting. but now that the remastered has it...there should be no excuse.
>>695296Fug, how difficult would be to port Med 2 EB2 to Rome: R? Don't they run on practically the same engines?
>>695356wouldnt it be far easier to start with EB1, fix any ahistorical units and then add whatever scripting shit they did in EB2 to EB1?
>>695295They're unlikely to completely revamp or revert the entire UI, but they have been listening to criticisms and tweaking things to make it better to use, there's a whole section in the recent beta patch notes detailing what they've improved so far
>>695356Why do you even want EB2 to begin with? It's shit compared to EB1, there's effectively a completely different team handling it and they've lost the plot.
>>695066>You will eat the bugs>You will live in a pod>You will buy the buggy remaster
>>695500It's really not buggy and that's not even what people were complaining about, people were upset that they didn't improve the pathfinding, that the game didn't support Windows 7, and that the UI was revamped to something they didn't like.
>>695381>lost the plotyes.... YES!!!
>>694236Its too much work.The factions are also hardcoded in some way so replacing them is pain in ass and dont work properly.
>>695167I played a lot Rtw recently and ai behavior and pathfinding especially in cities and with skirmish mode is shitBut i hear that rtwr have its own problems with skirmiah mode
>>695295Its somewhat hardcoded ao probably not
>>696088but they are open to fixing the UI, have you not looked at the recent patch notes?
>didnt even bother to add factions wich were cut content
Well, for what it's worth, with this newest beta patch, the AI/pathfinding in Remastered is now better than it was in the original, especially noticeable in siege battles where it does a much better job navigating city streets. Maybe not 100% perfect but clearly superior.
>>696218nice just imagine the patches that will improve the AI even further. would literally be no reason to ever play the new titles at all.
>>696294Wouldn't even put it past CA to pull support for the Remaster if this became obvious. CA has Feral by the balls in terms of deadlines, funding and patch priorities. From the start, they didn't seem to want this Remaster to take away from the Warhammer 3 hype. Just look at the fucking massive difference in marketing that Rome Remastered received compared to Warhammer 3.
>>696298i mean, we know that at minimum there is still one more patch left, the patch that increases the faction cap to 31. by then, they will have fixed any complaints people had>fixed old AI issues>raised modding caps
>you can now click and drag and rearrange units in armies on the campaign screenI've wanted this feature for so long
>>695170feral has my respect for this, but i want to wait and see what else they're willing to throw our way, i'm cautiously optimisitc.
>>696389nice, people were asking for that. nice to see feral take some complaints about their UI into consideration.
>>696452That wasn't a problem unique to their UI, the original Rome didn't let you do it either. In fact, none of the Total War games that I've played had this as a feature, though I admit I haven't played the newer ones so maybe Troy or Three Kingdoms or whatever has it.
>>695143>retard spacingYou are a dipshit, don't play Rome, go back to whatever shit game you think is fun
>>695067wasn´t possible in orignal rome its now possible in remaster
>Modding allow for potentially infinite region and faction numberthe most based things they could have done
>>700135Imagine the mods....
>>700135>and faction numbernot faction number. they have said that this one was specifically retardly hardcoded, so it will only be 31. unless theyre lying to keep a surprise or i havent heard recent updates, the faction limit will still only go to 31. still the the unit caps and building cap and region cap is still great. most mods in med 2 were not limited by faction slots but by unit slots, so this change is awesome.
>>693855so does the remaster still have the one turn tribute exploit or did they fix that?
>>700249They fixed that before launch if it’s the thing I’m thinking of
>>693855>killed mp communityno
>>703898>he care about the MP of total war
>>703898>MP total warokay all ten of you wow what a big whoop. ill take better rome 1 over the MP community any day of the week.
AHHHHHHHHHHH WHERE THE FUCK IS THE UPDATE ITS BEEN 2 WEEKS FUCKING BONGS
>>693855Apologize for what? The reason they patched the game in the first place was because of the backlash. If you bootlickers had your way where people only shill instead of criticize then this patch would've never happened.
>>710411sometime in the middle of august. we know this because the mod team for RTR will release their update only when the main branch is updated, and RTR is releasing this august.
>>694495It's a subreddit with less than a thousand people and they still live rent-free in you head.
