I just started downloading the mod and I look forward to playing it. I'll get back to you with the appropriate rating and comment as soon as I make a first impression. Thank you for sharing the mod bytheway.
You guy's did a wonderful job on that MOD, i really like it and thank you to share this whit us :goodjob:

Hail to the Roman Empire! Hail to Kordarus Caesar :king: !!!
hello all, i was looking for a ancient era mod on civ 4 bts, and i saw this one. And i played it some time ago and i didnt liked one thing. Now i downloaded it again, and i still see that there is one thing missing, otherwise this would be the perfect ancient era mod... I am talking about vassal states. How come there is no technology that enables vassal states? that makes the game much painfull. I really hope you can change it, because that will make this mod the best on civ4 database. Thanks
HI, the link isnt working. Where can i get the mod? thanks
i experience a crash when i try to launch the mod.
could it depend on the fact that i have the italian version of BTS?
i'm sad... i wish to play this wonderful mod like i did for civ3 :scan:
it just takes so much time to download :cry:
Played TAM for the first time over the last few days. I thought it was fantastic - very detailed and well-balanced. Great to be able to stay in the ancient era forever :).
It's 5-star now! Probably just not enough people know to wander into this little by-way.
It's really cool and what a fantastic MOD!!! ;)

But, I have a problem which I have some error....

I have some msgs that TXT_.......(French) and TXT_..... (Italian) when I load your MOD then it show with some unit, city, tech... when I paly. It's ok for play but kind of annoying.... Do you have any idea that I can remove this?


Thanks for your MOD!!
Yes, but TAM is awesome. It deserves much greater praise than it gets. Check it out! My favorite mod by far...
