Features
- More than 100 new historical countries across the map
- Modified map to represent the ancient coastline
- Two new regions
- Added a new nation formation decision
- Annual consul elections
- Senate appointments of offices in republics, with term limits
- Progressive cultural and religious conversion through events

Vision
The aims are more historical accuracy, expanding upon existing vanilla content to give more flavour to the player and eventually work on adding new bookmarks in a modular format, with the core mod being mandatory and bookmarks optional. With this stated, I want to make it clear that the philosophy of this mod will be different from that of the vanilla game, in the sense that more emphasis will be put on plausibility. That will lead the mod to not just simply expand upon vanilla while keeping the spirit, but also to question some choices that have been made in the base game and change them for it to correspond with our vision.

loup99, I figured you'd do a Fall of Rome mod hehe, but I will definitely be following this one.

I thought so too! But no, now we are working on this one. I hope you like the now setup. There is still a lot comming :) I would love to make some real map changes... we will see :)

I think, and I know I'm not alone in thinking it, that WtWSMS does a reasonably good job of modelling the Early Middle Ages, and I'm not abandoning that project until a dedicated game for the period is released. So here the intent will not be to change the timeframe, but rather look at how the existing vanilla frame can be made more historical and interesting to play. And I'm fortunate to have three other modders working alongside me in this project. ;)

You have already done an excellent job with adding an incredible amount of new historical countries! The existing map changes really make the mod stand out from the base game, but I do look forward to what you can come up with next.
 
you should just like, really quickly rename the Latin culture group to the Italic culture group since a lot of the cultures in that group aren't Latin but Italic :b

Sounds reasonable! Was on my list on cultural changes too. I have a large list on cultural stuff. this one should be easy done. :)
 
Great to see you here! The best of luck to you and the team :)

I have one suggestion (which I might one day take forward myself?): bookmarks for, not only the 1st or 2nd punic wars, but the aftermath of the 1st one. The timeframe when a weakened Carthage had to redesign a new imperial strategy, when the Barcid family started expanding the Carthaginian realm in a whole new direction, Iberia. And then preparing for a come back...
 
Heck! That was fast ... too fast ;) Will be keeping an eye on this and perhaps helping once I figure out how to mod I:R :)

I've done some cartography in the past to properly model a map of ancient Italy. This seems the most accurate for the Po valley. There are a number of small changes, such as deltas on the Tuscan coast. In south Italy the most important thing is that one of the lakes of Gargano is not yet a lake but a bay.

I would recommend that you add a province west of Korinthos for Sikyon. Sikyon was one of the most important cities in the Achaean League and its joining into the league was the moment at which it transitioned from a collection of minor Achaean cities into a local power.
