Originally written by HusserlTW @ Total War Center forum Hellas Mod v. 3.X The 3rd major release of Hellas mod includes some changes in mod's interface and in campaign. A handy, simple but powerful launcher starts the mod game with one click. No more editing user script or manually move files around. Moreover you can find some useful futures in menu which you should already know from ETF launcher. Important: you do not have to -and you must not- edit user script unless you want to add other mods and combine them with Hellas Mod. In campaign there are some significant changes as well. Now it starts in 1821 and it is set in 4 turns per year. Greece has got only Moreas region. Income has slightly increased in Moreas and Greece regions to help the new state survive the first turns as it is already in war with Ottomans. The Greek treasury is only 5000 while the Ottomans are far wealthier. In 15 first turns only irregulars and phillelines units are available. I've also increased dislikeness in population of Moreas to reflect the civil fights among Greeks during the revolution. Since it is not possible to add new characters, 2 unique units have been added, Theodoros Kolokotronis and Nikitaras. They have 12 men each, superior stats, they use the Royal Phalanx texture, while their leader use different main colours (red and green instead of blue) representing the 2 historical persons. Larissa is present from the start of the game as education town while Ioannina has been changed to a textile town. There are also some other minor changes and a couple of fixes for issues that had been reported in previous version. Hellas Mod v. 2.X This is version 2.X of Greek mod with many changes that aim to make it more interesting and more joyful. The most obvious changes are in textures. There are some fine textures made by Anastasios and some temporary made by me. All the textures should be reworked from Anastasios in next releases. Some units historically had traditional uniforms and guns. I've tried to make as closed it was possible due to serious limitations in changing models. However the most important change in the game play are the changes in units stats and units recruitment. Stats where reworked having in mind the VH level where Greece normally has no chance. Even now it is very challenging and only a TW expert has a few chances to succeed. Game play info and tips: The regular units are expensive and limited in numbers thus with better stats and full sizes. This reflects the small economy of the new established Kingdom. Greek units can be recruited only in Moreas, Greece and Rumelia. The only global units are the irregulars and Chorofilakes (infantry and cavalry) that historically had also police duties. Naval units are also global. You won't be able to make more than 3-4 full stacks with regular units because of the limitations. Also the high prices in buying and keeping them will discourage you to recruit many of them early in the game before you develop your economy. But the enemies will never let you do that in land and sea... A good strategy is always to avoid quick expansion and develop your economy. All the building slots in Athens lead to prestige buildings that boosts your economy. Sacrifice one of your towns for making a school for technology research. To protect your lands base your starting armies in irregulars that are cheap to buy and maintain. They are veterans of the Greek Revolution and especially in melee combat are excellent fighters. Also Philellenes (foreign volunteers) should be your early solution in recruiting line army and cavalry. They have also low cost in recruitment and up keeping. Greece starts with 2 commercial and 1 naval port, reflecting the strong power that has traditionally in sea trade. Even during the Revolution the Greeks used trade vessels transformed to battle ships. There are 4 special unique naval units that should help you survive from the see threats with low cost in recruitment and up keeping. Also Greek 5th rate line vessels can beat easily the 5th rates of other factions and will be a challenging opponent for bigger enemy ships with the help of the unique naval units. Historically this power should be met in smaller vessels but in Late Campaign there are many big ships of the line around, so 5th rate is considered a small vessel even in the beginning of the game. As mentioned the limitations in unit numbers will not let you make more than 3-4 full stack of regular units and these only in home regions and Rumelia. For the rest of the world you can recruit local units. More than 130 units are recruitable by Greece with the included AOR system. Since the depth in game play is a main objective for this mod your suggestions and ideas in this filed playing with Greek mod is mostly welcome.

Prestige Buildings Anaktora (government). The neoclassical three-floor structure designed by Friedrich von G?rtner and completed in 1843, originally served as a palace for the Greek monarchs. Academia, Acad?me, or the Academy are collective terms for the community of students and scholars engaged in higher education and research.
