Primus Pilus

Primus Pilus (7/14)



  1. I am not sure. Maybe. I know Iberians from the North-East collected heads. Hands I don't know. As far as I know, the genetical differences between Iberians or Etruscans are small with their neighbors. On the Iberian peninsula, the change mostly happened during the early Bronze Age but for everyone. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/ancient-iberians-dna-from-steppe-men-spain https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6436108/ https://www.uma.es/sala-de-prensa/noticias/reconstruyen-la-historia-genomica-de-la-peninsula-iberica-de-los-ultimos-8000-anos/ https://www.lavanguardia.com/vida/20190314/461028099943/la-asombrosa-historia-de-la-peninsula-iberica-a-traves-de-8000-anos-de-adn.html
  2. Celtiberians collected hands that's correct but generaly the right hands. So it isn't right (pun intended).
  3. It has been removed for the Celts because they didn't use it but indeed, I see no issues for the Romans and the Carthaginians. We know that since the 2nd century BC, the Romans used it (called Mola Asinaria). Although it would be best to rename it "horse mill" instead of "rotary mill". It doesn't seem that the Greeks used it before the Roman Empire. Edit: concerning the watermill, it seems that the oldest record suggest it cames from the Kingdom of Pontus (2nd/1st century BC)
  4. Cherry picking the particular case of Hinkley Point C ? Anyway electricity price is complicated in UK: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-07-30/u-k-power-is-so-high-that-edf-hinkley-reactor-looks-good-value The problem is more the UK than the nuclear plant but whatever. https://www.iea.org/reports/projected-costs-of-generating-electricity-2020 France is producing more than 70% of its electricity from nuclear. So...
  5. It is cheap enough and much more stable/consistant. Hydroelectric dams are worst than nuclear plants, they killed much more people and polluted much more as well (for example the methylation of mercure occuring in South America).
  6. Any very urban civilization could claim this bonus, but probably Rome and Ptolemaic Egypt were the best in the matter of metropolis and large urban population. Ancient Carthage as well. Rome, Alexandria and Carthage were probably the largest cities.
  7. France is mostly nuclear. It has little impact.
  8. I like the idea. It will give them a short edge, not too early and not too late. I think the Romans should have a population bonus. Their manpower was enormous for the time:
  9. I suggest you to break down the implementation in different steps and to stay simple for the first steps. Aiming directly for 25 units would be a bit difficult. Including a rock throwing unit would require a new animation. ---------------- To be viable, the civilization would require at least: - new male and female citizens - javelineer - slinger - spearman - swordsman - light cavalryman - heavy cavalryman (spear or sword) - two champion units. - two unique techs - a civilization bonus - three heroes At first you can reuse models from the Iberians, like the caetra and the falcata, and change only the texture of the body.
  10. By the way, I noticed a potential issue in a previous post of Ardworix (one more to the list). He claimed the Lusitanians wore black cloths but actually it isn't related to Lusitanians. About it, also Diodorus Sciculus: Actually, he manipulated the quotes for purposes. The whole quote from Strabo should be this (the translation is different but you will see the issue): Bastetania is actually there: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastetania For Diodorus Siculus, the quote is actually about Celtiberians:
