Boooo hisss

Sorry to dissapoint, but to create unique factions, we needed one greek faction, as two would be too similar and we would end up like, the multiple similar greek factions in 0 ad or rome total war 1.

If you want different Greekish factions, you can add varieties from Mycenean and Minoean cultures. 

It would just be nice to be able to show the differences between, say, the Spartans and Athenians in how they celebrated their religion. That's all. :)

It would be difficult to have Mycenaean and Minoan pantheons, though not impossible. Any suggestions?

True I agree! 

Perhaps I will put the spartans back on the list at a later point, just so many other factions seem popular at this point.

That is an idea, it's just hard to find a complete pantheon, we are looking at 12 or 13 deities per a faction and a myth unit for every one of those deity's and a titan.

A few legends from the Titans are suspected to come from the Minoan civilization. Rhea for example. Others gods like Posidaeja and Britomartis are from them as well. The minotaurus legend too.

Interesting, I knew about some of them but all. I could as a comprimise make the greeks a generic faction that represents the Greek world. For example if they are generic then in theory they could represent different city states too. The Minoan could be a possible faction, perhaps based of the titans similiar to atlantis of aom.

In campaigns and scenarios (when they come), the greeks would use different names and maybe slighty different units to represent different city states.

Bronze age Greek civilizations looks nothing at all like the classical Greeks we have in game.

Perhaps some tweaks can be made to them to adjust them to resemble greeks of that era. We would like to finish the myth units first, then we can tweak the Norse and greeks to look more appropriate to the era!

Quick update

Centaurs and Minotaur basically done!  (Courtesy of Alexandermb)

Sundiata is just making some textures for them, I will post a pic of them (or alexandermb or someone else) when they have textures! 

Glory system is done and templates for respective units, Hercules redesigned (courtesy of Angen) 

Major deity system is in place (courtesy of Smiley) , just need some portaits for norse and minor diety's need to be set up.

Basic music is done.

We are slowly trying to balance existing Myth units and we will eventually tweak movement speed and speed of all units to realistic settings.

(Numerous suggestions, help and github help by Stanilas and Asterix too! Very helpful)

Of course as always, we are thankful for all feedback from the community, it helps in creating something that will be enjoyable by all.

Some units have been reshuffled and some abilities have been changed. 

Loki has two Myth units now, Draugr are now planned to spawn upon the death of a norse unit and Jörmungandr is his added as his second Myth unit.

Hercules as of now, courtesy of Angen.

He might be retexured at some point.

Feel free to give some comments!

We might add the Nemean Lion skin as a cape later and his weapon might be adjusted.

Centaur and Minotaur have basic textures at the moment, will post a pic (or one of the other devs might post it) when they have their textures done.

The mod was moved to alpha 24 svn public for development, however one can still run it on alpha 23 for the time being by changing the dependancy in the mod.json file.

Quick update, Sundiata is currently working on some armor retextures for the centaur, Alexandermb is working on a baked axe. Will, definitely post some pictures of both the centaur and minotaur once everything is completely done. A lot of work has been done so far in a short time. Stay tuned

@Itms Ping.

They seem to credit us which is fine, but I believe they need to link the creative commons license.

I didn’t know about this, looks interesting though. As everyone else said, they need to add the license too.

Yes definitely, seeing that they credit us properly they should be happy to license properly :) Can you contact them? Else I'll probably have some time for that after this weekend.

As a side note, it's funny that they use our textures when it's the thing our artists are the most dissatisfied with :D
