(I wonder what Altair has done to the combat formulas in this mod? I noticed that concentric bonuses seem pretty low. Even though I had legions on three side, including on opposite side, my conc. bonus was only 20%)
Altair's mod doesn't allow the Romans to build new units, not even to garrison towns (exception: using the hand card to buy a single legion), and this leaves their supply lines and towns too vulnerable. I think some tweaking may still be in order . . .
Yes, I modified concentric values and tuned them down. This comes along with low amounts of roman container units. When the game is getting older and the Rome has 3-4 Legions, then Romans should not have problem with them.
I've tryed to make new kind of warfare where one side has superior units but few containers. Other side has a lot of low quality units. With this system, normal concentric bonuses would favor barbarians too much, since they can easily surround few Roman units and get a huge bonuses. So, this is needed to make this system work correctly. I am not saying that this is balanced yet though. As we all know, all new systems needs testing and balancing before they work perfectly. At the moment balance seems good enough. Anyway, battlesystem favors Romans as it is now.
