    Sure it helps :). So school and academia are the same thing? So is market and forum? Hum... Maybe then having a 'school' and a 'big school', then a 'market' and a 'big market'. I can't help filling the hole up there, Latin isn't my stuff. Otherwise, I hope to finish the updated pedia tomorrow, although I will still have to insert Latin names there.
    Is there any volunteer for proof reading (both English and historical information)?
    EDIT: there is still a bunch of units posted 2 days ago in need of Latin names!

    I could proof-read some things, I guess.

    Which units still need to be translated? I might be able to help.

    pinktilapia, I've released ten of my ancient leaderheads for use in your mod :D . They're available over in the Graphics modpack section.

    I love how you did Cleopatra, unlike the Firaxis leaderhead, she looks genuinely Egyptian in all eras, and the backgrounds....the backgrounds are MUCH better than the Firaxis ones as well...all toghether, I give the Cleopatra leaderhead 5 out of 5 stars..it doesn't get much better than this! :goodjob:

    R8XFT, this isn't my birthday but it surely should be :)
    Although I am thinking hard on how to add the amazons in the mod, you can be sure most of them will now be calling RFRE home :)

    Thanks!

    I'll translate everything between tonight and Saturday if you're not in a hurry. Actually I said I would do it already :)

    @onedreamer
    Monday would do just fine, I won't be around during weekend.
    @metacomet
    ok, will PM the pedia to you too, although likely next week. Tell me if you feel like writing some entries rather than just proofreading them. I am done with the units, but all the improvements and tech still need their text. And then there is also the scientific advisor's comments in the script.txt to do... Help? :)

    I won't be able to finish all the planned work this week, with the pedia which takes forever to rewrite and new leaderheads to insert. The Beta is delayed so but not for long.

    I'm translating the buildings currently, hope I'm done by tomorrow. I'll be happy to help out with any translations into Latin, as I have had Latin for five years and am still studying it.

    I think it's very interesting that you're trying to simulate the whole history of the Roman Empire. In fact it seems like an immense project and exciting from a historical point of view, but will it motivate the player if he knows that his empire must decline? :( That the goal of the game is to lose as late as possible? :sad: But please continue working on your scenario, i'm sure it'll be great when it's done! :goodjob:

    It maybe just me ;) but I am actually very interested playing games where you play a huge old nation overwhelmed by enemies, there is a certain dramatic/epic feel to it. Beside my masochist side, the player isn't actually supposed to loose but to save the East plus as much as he can elsewhere! By the end of the game, with the advances in the last era, he even undertakes a revival and should be able to reconquer some lost possessions before the game stops. Only time (and testing) will tell us if all this work, thus my dire need for serious testers as soon as the beta is finally up. For the translation, onedreamer said he would be working on it so you maybe should coordinate who do what. If you want to help, you can also write pedia entries!
    @Metacomet
    Ok, just pick any improvements in the list above - I also send you the pedia as it is now to give you a better idea of what is in there. But don't ruin your family life for the mod :)

    @pinktilapia:
    OK, so if you play really well you can hold on with the eastern half, that sounds allright then. And historically accurate, since they did hold out til 1453, although the "empire" had shrunken to the immediate surroundings of the city by then! If I can help with the pedia entries, please send to me whatever work you have in mind and outline my task.
