Anyone played Empire: Total War?  This thread has inspired me to try taking Constantinople and the Balkans as Russia.

I have, but my version is not working for whatever reason. In any case, Paradox Interactive games are superior. Tongue

I like the battles in Total War (playing a bit of Shogun II currently).  Are there battles in this one or are they just auto-calc'd?

No battles. I definitely miss routing superior armies in Medieval II.

They are on auto. The game is far too detailed otherwise to be able to support the graphics load of full battles. In other words, you sacrifice the realism of battle for the realism of gameplay in other areas, as well as the detail of the map.

One ridiculous thing I found is that when religious rebels take over a province, any province, they forcibly convert it to their religion and it takes a missionary to bring those people back to their old religion, even if you drive the rebels out a month later.

So it's kind of like Hearts of Iron then.

The same company makes both, as well as my favourite Victoria II, so yes.

I've actually written missions for Byzantium on the base game that lead you to gaining the Justinian era territories back... That is what I love about EU3, being able to modify things...

Just got this off D2D the other day. The learning curve is a bit steeper than I thought it would be, but I'm enjoying it now that I'm getting the hang of it (and no longer war hungry Wink ). I edited the file to make southern Italy (Calabria and Apulia) Sicilian and made Sicily Orthodox. Smiley I took back Abruzzi from Rome and now I want to take back Naples and head to the Papal States. I'm a bit apprehensive to do so because they're allied with Milan.

I still haven't figured out how to transport troops across the sea. I have allies in the Balkans that I'd like to help out against folks like Venice or the Ottomans, but I'm never able to get over there. :/ Any ideas?

In Christ,
Andrew

I haven't played to much EUIII, but if it is anything like VickyII: Load them on to transport-type ship; move ship to coastal zone off province you want to move to; select troops; right-click province.

The cog is your transport ship.
