    yes, yes, working on the final touch right now ;). I had a though week so it all goes slower than I wanted. I will contact 3DDownloads on Monday. Cross your fingers.

    To start with, an apetizer. It is slow (and so much so!), still under construction, and of course the link you are all looking for is still missing, but finally that part is up!

    The beta (0.6) is done. I have yet to hear an answer from 3DDownloads, although they previously agreed to host the pack. If they don't reply in a couple of days, I guess I will have to be looking a host again *sigh*

    :confused: I always thought it would be too much strain on CFC servers...
    Seeing that all the large mods (WH2 and the kind) are all hosted outside. It might be worth clarifying with Thunderfall though. Who knows...

    You can ask him, he'll probably let you.

    I've been looking at the site, and I was wondering, why are there 4 different Greek civs? Will they be in an alliance or something? Or is it because if you attack Athens, every Greek from Sicily to Troy wouldn't be after you?

    Historically, the Greek were even more divided than that. Why Greece went down the drain so fast was because of permanent internal fighting. If we forget about the big picture (Alexander's Empire and his warmongering successors), even in Greece proper, there was a permanent war between the Aetolian and Achean Leagues. Making Greece a one big nation would be very incorrect, although maybe good for gameplay since divided Greeks are not really a challenge for the legions, I have to agree... :)

    I suppose it is better for the Romans that way, like it is with a divided Gaul.

    Can't wait to download the beta!!!
    The Greeks split up to weaken them is nice and accurate. Only the Romans' Philhellenism prevented them from marching into Greece and just grabbing it as early as possible. They only turned nasty and sacked Corinth later on, in 146 BC. So some split up Greeks are easy prey for the Romans. Sounds good to me!

    :) waiting.
    The mod is uploaded but Thunderfall has to move it to 3DDownloads, so it might take time. I post again as soon as I hear from him.
