SkyElf I think you missed Ravinhood's sage insight.
RTW indeed has an AI opponent. An Artificial Idiot.
LOL Adam Awwwww you gave it away. :)
Actually the best mod made for RTW I made it myself. I took out the 1 per turn buy system an allowed the AI to buy as many units as it wanted to per turn. I also elminated upkeep costs for all but the Roman troups and gave all regular units 7 to 10 hit points and archers and catapults unlimited ammo. I gave all leaders 20 hit points and had some hellofalong time good battles playing this way. I also turned OFF morale settings at the start of the campaign. No more of this running at the touch of a sword or spear, you actually have time to play tactically in the battles and so does the AI. You can actually sit back and watch the battle play out as well since it takes a long time to knock down 10 to 20 hit points on units. With Morale OFF you WILL lose lots of units playing on MEDIUM combat settings. This was one of the things in vanilla RTW I just could not stand going up against 3 to 1 odds and only losing 18 men. That was just totally rediculous. The other challenging feature of this mod is you have to really watch your population values, you can run out of population to recruit fast if you overextend yourself. This plays much like "Centurian Defender of Rome" now. I also gave Carthage 200,000 denari to start and with that kind of cash they can bust out into Spain and hold their own against Scipio. I give Rome itself 500,000 denari, because if you've ever looked at Rome as a player you will quickly find they don't have the funds or income to support much of an army. With the 500,000 denari it gives them enough cash to build up to be able to support the many stacks of armies they will put out on the map and by the time the civil war starts they will be ready for you. ;)
