WARNING ABOUT THE UPCOMING EMPIRE DIVIDED PATCH ON NOVEMBER 30th

There is a high probability that the mod will stop function on November 30th due to the upcoming new patch. To keep playing Hellenika do the following (I quote from the patch's FAQ section)

"If you want to avoid this update to keep your mods working or you just want to stay on the version on Total War: ROME II you’ve been playing up until now, follow these steps:

Open Steam and select Total War: Rome II in your library
Right click Rome II and select properties
Open the ‘Betas’ tab
In the drop down menu, select the ‘patch_17’ option
Steam will download your update and the name of Total War: ROME II on your Steam library will end with [patch_17]"




SUMMARY

Hellenika is a total overhaul of the Wrath of Sparta campaign. It combines stunning and historical visuals with campaign mechanics never seen before. Nearly every aspect of the vanilla game has been redone for both Greeks and Persians with astonishing detail. Thanks to a dedicated team this mod has been created with the purpose to give you an immersive and completely fresh-new gaming experience.


OUR AIM

This mod has been created with 2 targets in mind.
1 ) The absolute devotion to historic authenticity. We did not use any “what if scenarios” or fantasy units and whenever we faced a design dilemma between making the game follow historical facts or being “game play friendly” or “mainstream” we chose the path of history. Every gameplay or visual decision was taken after confirmation in historical textbooks and each one’s personal research .
2 ) “Force” the player to use his strategic skills and bombard him with dilemmas. In every decision there are pros and cons and hopefully this is an element to increase replay ability.


WHAT NEW ΤΗΙS MOD BRINGS

In an overview let us present you some of the mod’s features

- Authentic unit looks
- Unique recruitment system
- Manpower system with actual troop numbers
- Social system
- Political system
- Terrain affecting troops' performance
- Unique regions
- Diplomatic overhaul
- Agents reworked
- Entirely new technologies for each faction
- Historical Characters

And many, many more!

The Wrath of Sparta map does not allow us any noticable expansion towards the North. There aren't many regions. Despite that, in Northern areas that exist in the map there are many AOR available barbaric and Illirian troops. Finally there is an imminent much more serious problem with Mod's functionallity after the arrival of the new patch so currently we cannot think of any expansion.
Thanks for the info and tips mate.

Have you thought of making the Illyrians present north of macedonia or north of epirus? They played a large part during the Peloponesian wars, the spartans and macedonians both fighting them. It would be awesome to have barbarian diversity with them in game.
It would be a much appreciated add-on.

So you did try the mod with the new beta patch? If yes, and the only problem you faced was the one you mention below, then you give me hope because I was expecting worse. In fact I wasn't expecting the mod to load at all.. If this is the only problem I will contact M@ximus who is responsible for the models and he will fix this issue I believe with relative ease..

The thing is that if you have any mod that has new units or even simple reskeventhe soldiers become invisble and you basically have an army floating shields and armor and swords, and this affect your game even by having them in your file folder the only characters you can see are the faction leaders.

Was a bit buzy with RL and work lately. Didnt even try the new patch. Did you have any problems runnng the mod after the new patch? Will try to update soon enough.
Thanks for the info
