+FrozenmenBG+'s Rome 2 Overhaul Collector's Emperor Edition (All Mods can works simultaneously on Patch 17)
This is my +FrozenmenBG+'s Collector's Edition working
with the latest Patch 17 - Emperor Edition and focused mainly for the Grand Campaign.
It works also with the Hannibal at the Gates , the Ceaser in Gaul ,Imperator Augustus Campaign, Wrath of Sparta DLC-s

This Mod Compilation will improve your gameplay drastically. In order to know the whole outcome of this Mod Compilation I DO RECOMMEND reading the text wall below. You won't regret it !
One tip for people seeing this, if they aren't familiar with compilations in Steam: if you like many of the mods in My +FrozenmenBG+'s Rome 2 Overhaul Collector's Edition Mod Compilation, but not all of them, you can still check out my comp and subscribe to the mods individually. So if you don't like one particular thing, you can still use my compilation to get everything you want, but easily leave out a mod or two that you don't want. It's a pretty nice feature since we all know that customization is the best aspect of mods.

All the mods are working together and without the Game crashing when playing a Campaign !!!!

My main Goals in this Overhaul Collector's Emperor Edition are:

- Rome 1: Total War Music
- It will be Guaranteed that the Major Factions will become Power Houses,but not making them OP

- Grand Campaign on Imperator Augustus map with the Vannila Factions
You can still play the Imperator Augustus Campaign with no problems.
- 4 turn per year Balance Mod.
Build times multiplied by x4.
Research times multiplied by x4.
Recruitment slots lowered from 3 to 1

- Traits, talents and toadies.
- A More Aggressive CAI
- Increased Spotting Distances for a More Tactical BAI

- The Limited Agents Mod
Max 1 Agent per type per faction = 1 Spy,1 Dignatary,1 Champion

- ''Epic Campaigns'' for the Vannila land units
A: Those Mods permits recruiting of ALL Vannila units (without the artilery units) from level 1 barracks for you AND the AI
A: Because 1) it is historical.The time the game begins almost all units were present-Spartan hoplites?Seleucids elephants?Romans dogs?Suebi berserkers and longbowmen?Parthians cataphracts?.It is kind gamish to unlock units from ceratain barracks and all civilaztion to start from zero point
2) Now the AI will recruit its best troops to come to get you.You will fight cataphracts and elephants from turn 1
3) BARRACKS ARE VERY important Still .But now they give bonuses to attack,defence,moral,cavalry charge etc due to better training.Also for every civilazation they have unique charcteristics.Every next level gives more bonuses and in other relevant areas too. So that way a hoplite for example recruited from a level 3 barrack is much more deadly than one from level 1

Known issues.
1) Mods that add units will work ok but units will be produces from barrack level specified from the creator.
2)This mod purpose is not to be a cheat mod but a historic accurate mod that improves game play.Later Roman troops are still recruited through technology or later barracks and these troops are the only one in game that are Tec related. all other troops of all other factions are available. this does not weaken Rome because the mod have arranged strong bonuses in attack from Roman barracks to show Roman military superiority. bonuses other factions lack in strength and in time they achieve

- Roma II: Total War Camera Mod

Several unit mods including
- the Radious Unit Packs:
1) Barbarian Invasion;
2) Rise of an Empire;
3) Eastern Eclipse;

- Caesar's Cohort (Rome)
- champLoo's Gold Unit Compilation
- TWH Unit Packs:
1) S.A.P V.2;
2) M.H.F.V.1;
3) M.E.P V.2;

- Realistic Legionary Tactics + Wedge Formations for the Rome's Legionary Infantry
And So on
Up to 1300 new custom units Total !!! for all Factions !!!

IM NOT JOKING 1300+ new custom units
If you want to Use other than the the " Grand Campaign on Imperator Augustus map" Mod then Use ONLY 1 MOD from my

If not -The 4 TPY Balance Mod - Build, Research and Recruit ...will just be another 1 Turns per year Hardcore Mod

My mod Compilation is in top 10(now 6th place) Best Mod Colections for Rome 2 - if you vote for this Mod Pack by giving it a thumb up and adding it to your favorites you are helping me guys, and the people who created those Great mods A LOT by Promoting this Mod Colection !!!!
A friend of mine found a workaround for the unit sizes! Just use the ESF editor to edit your save file (just save your game first thing you do when you start a new campaign and edit that one) and multiply the unit sizes! Works perfectly with all unit packs too! This will also give more ships per unit.

1) using ESF editor open up your save game. (Open ESF as admin)
2) Click on compress_data >> campaign_env >> campaign_setup >> campaign_setup_options
3) Change the second number to whatever you like. 2 will give 320 men per unit (2x160). 3 will give 480 men per unit (3x160) and so on.

Quote From "theliquid8or" - Fantastic still not yet known Modder amongs the Comunity:
-----------------------------------------------------------> 41 Units in 1 Land Army Stack TUTORIAL:
0. You need an allready created savegame.
1. Download this:
2. Run EditSF.exe.
3. Open your savegame. (Located here: C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Rome2\save_games)
4. Go to: Campaign_Save_Game > Compressed_Data > Campaign_Env > Campaign_Model
5. Change ONLY the 9th value from 20 to 41. The 10th value causes CTD so DON'T CHANGE THAT.
6. HIT ENTER and the number turns red.
7. Save the file, give it some time until it turns black again and close EditSF.exe.
8. Load the savegame and play the game!

wheres the 4 turns per year balance mod
FrozenmenBG  [author] Feb 26, 2015 @ 12:51am 
Sorry for the Delay - So the Combat speed is the same as in Emperor Edition version of the game for balancing pourposes - there are 1300 new custom units in this Mod Compilation.. Its a bit slower than the Combat speed of the pre-Emperor Edition version - slower, strategic to make your moves but not to the extremes to get bored. Now the Combat speed got the compromise for all players - not too fast and not too slow and get bored ,when playing ,and no needs to press the Triple speed button again... Oh btw the AI is also strategic,tries to kite you, not rushing you with eveything, stays in formation, prepares for rear charges and flangs you with the cavalry.
Khsar Feb 21, 2015 @ 1:30pm 
I do have a question, and I can't check because no Rome 2. But, how are the battles in this mod? One thing I saw when I was playing on my friends PC, was that battles were way too fast. And like toontotalwar, I was looking at his changes and he made them FASTER. Which I thought was super lame. Vanilla is already way too fast. Do any of these mods change that at all? Or have any suggestions on actual slow, strategic combat? That was only thing I didn't like when I was playing it without mods.

I don't have Rome 2 yet. Money has been really tight, but maybe next steam sale on it.

I did buy Attila recently (should have went with Rome 2 :( ), but I think I'll be waiting for mods and DLCs to come out as I can't bring myself to even launch it. I did play Rome 2 on my friends PC, but I rarely see him...but I found it WAY more fun than Attila. He didn't even have any mods or DLCs, and it was before the EE edition.

With that said...while I don't have Rome 2. I know when you make mod compilations or mods of any kind...people tend to take it for granted and the modder doesn't really get any thanks. So, I want to let you know this looks amazing and it looks like you did a really good job on it. :) Once I get rome 2, I'm definitely getting this :D
