ROME II "Must have" Mods
Roundup of the best realistic mods on the workshop.

The collection is focus on the grand campaign.
You dont have to use them all at the same time you can just pick the one you like
but If they are all up to date, they should all be compatible (Using Mitch MM).

-Graphical improvement.
-Tweak and gameplay modification.

!!! I strongly advise using ** Mitch Mod Manager ** it is the best way to prevent conflicts and crashs when using multiples mods at the same time !!!

Mitch Mod Manager

Thx to all the modders.

Final Version.
