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.

Divide et Impera New Part 1
Created by Dresden
- The Steam version of the mod is now 3 parts instead of 10 due to new changes to the workshop file size limit. If you already had all 10 parts previously, you will have the new 3 parts.

Is it recommended to play this mod with the other campaigns besides the grand campaign?

hi, I was wondering why the Ordryssian Kingdom isn't working for me, as in it's not playable

@Dresden hey mate, awesome work as usual as I'm playing my 5th campaign on your mod. However, i was wondering if that was normal that all my hellenistic macedonian units had magnificent helmets and fiery crests. That does not look bad for sure but it seems a bit exaggerated. Seems like they are all officers or basilikoi guards.

Am I missing anything? If not, can you teach me where I can edit the variant meshes and in what part of your mod to make it a few more usual. Am not sure to understand how works the tool but I may try. :)

@Dresden having problems since update, tried unsubscribing and clearing out my workshop/content etc. folder then re-subscribing. The 3 new parts have downloaded to said folder however the mod manager in the launcher says there are no mods installed.

dont know if anyone else is experiencing this but the game keeps crashing when i try to start a grand campaign have uninstalled/unsubscribed all mods and then redownloaded the three new ones. have tried hitting the enable out of date mods button as well as starting without hitting that but result is always the same it keeps crashing at the load screen after i select a faction

the shieldwall/spearphalanx ability is broken. i cant break them fast enough with celt factions even though i rearcharge, javelin strike or/and surround them, literally throwing everything in i ve got. nothing works and my army routs at some point. sometimes having almost full strength because the enemy spears/shieldwall just bulldozes through my lines and hits me with arrows. it was never such a big issue because i was able to just surround and break them. but now it s nigh impossible. requesting a fix for that, if at all possible. not the behaviour, since that is AI, but maybe the abilities or formation. it s easy to play with rome or greeks, but try a getae campaign, or scordisci. whilst very challenging and fun it s also beyond frustrating that i have nothing against the above.

why some of the parts are always charging ? it makes i can't play the game because i need to wait the mod finish to charge

Dresden, you create a lot of submods, which small changing your prime mod Divide et Impera. Maybe you can create submod which adds legions in Early game Because Roma it means Legions. Please It may be in your submod collection like other small mods

@Dreden, You got any tips to work around late game squalor, No matter how many Aquaducts and yellow/blue buildings I have to improve sanitation/public order its still massively in the negative with PO just from the the Tier 3-4 Province capital building and town buildings. Thanks

@gordon The steam workshop now stores mods in a different location. Its under the workshop folder in the steamapps area. A better way to do it would be to make a submod for yourself rather than using the main mod.
