Divide et Impera
Divide et Impera is a total overhaul of Rome 2 that seeks to provide a challenging, historically authentic, realistic experience of the ancient world and warfare. Almost all aspects of the game have been overhauled, including hundreds of custom units and textures. DeI also includes custom scripting that provides a unique Reforms system, a Supply system and other unique game elements. Requires all 8 parts to run properly.

Divide et Impera was named CA's best Overhaul Mod 2014, Most Innovative 2015 and also won Player's Choice for 2014 and 2015. Thanks to all of our players for your support!

If you are experiencing crashes at startup or regularly in game play:
1. Check for other mods activated or just in your data folder. Some mods can be active even without activating them in Mod Manager. DeI does not work with most other mods.
2. Reverify your game cache in steam.
3. Do not use the patch 17 beta option in steam, that is an older game version.

As baktria no matter how long I tried my growth stayed at one because of constant negative public order. When they would rebel it would say positive 20 for one turn then jump right back up to negative 7 and higher. I built buildings for public order and growth but hellenic culture continued to decrease probably because my neighbors are all persian. How do you get growth for more building slots when your constantly at negative public order even with patrol stance and households that add public order and traits to.

Hello, can someone tell me why the pretorian units had gone? I have no pretoriana cohorts or cavalry.

Seeing if re-downloading the campaign after today's patch will solve the following issue : All my DEI Mods and then some have disappeared. Only " English Names" and "Fast Battles" remains.

RTW2 Just updated itself for me and then after startup DEI had disappeared from the game and it does not show up in the 'mods' section of the RTW launcher any more.

I just came back playing the mod after one year and notice the AI on campaign map is terible. It was much better before the family threes updates. Is it only for me? Can i solve it? :steammocking:
Note: The AI on battles looks right to me.

Downloaded the current beta from the link provided on the 2nd... and it crashes my game to desktop. If I uncheck the "run outdated mods" option it runs fine but won't load the mod. Maybe I'll try the Workshop upload.

I downloaded all three parts of this. But they don't seem to appear in the mod manager. What should I do?
