    By the way at what point can you actually rate posts? I've done 50 posts here and still don't see an option.

    aaaaaaand

    Hosting a NEW game, with dominions enhanced, on a large thematic map.

    DE adds about 10-20% more content to the game, including a couple new nations that are reasonably balanced. Including Genie-nation, NZ natives (Maori) and MOAR

    It includes several other mods together, worthy heroes, magic enhanced and something else I can't remember.

    It adds unique summons/spells to every nation that didn't already have them, so it's balances the game quite a bit - it adds a lot of "unique" summons that are not just level 8/9 conjuration godzillas and titans, but also more humble level 5/6 mini-SC's

    Honestly once you try it you may never want to go back, because it makes many more nations interesting to play.

    Eeeh, I'm not very keen on big mods, I barely have a grip on the game as it is :) But otherwise we could do a new game, sure. As for conceeding, I'd say we're slowly loosing, no?

    Slowly losing from a position of massively winning, idk. Hard to tell what with those scales skewering the economic math so much. I'm still having fun.

    I guess the knights do trade better than the eagle warriors, the rest of my stuff was totally useless, lesson learnt - but the knights wiped out a squad of 26 eagle-boys and my other squad killed ~60 of them which is pretty good.

    You bastards and your infectious, stubborn fighting spirit.

    I think you have a pretty good grip on the game sqeecoo - you sit in the corner and wait until everyone dies, then win the game. The mod won't change that.

    Besides, everyone will be on equal-unknown footing, it gives you a ton of fun new globals, spells like "become X" so you can turn a mage into a lich, or dragon, or golem - keeping their paths.

    It makes a lot of stuff playable, like reducing cost of rubbish 5-gem level 1 and 2 construction items nobody uses "enchanted sword" into 1 or 2 gem goodies, so they actually become quite reasonable. Nations like Lanka and Caelum, don't really get anything new, but other nations that have no late game summons, get them.

    E.g. Abysia gets LoTR Balrog SC's.... Pangaea gets Lord of the Wild pretender as a level 8 repeatable summon, so you can get these giant goat-man titans, pretty cool. Most of the water nations get a buff e.g. unique summons, but access to water for non-water nations is also increased.

    If we play normal dominions, hardly anyone wants to play shit nations for the flavor, in DE there isn't really any shit nations, except EA Ulm.

    They also balance the magic paths, so water/fire isn't so shit.

    If you want to check out what DE adds to the game, you can download the mod and read the manual, or just check out the inspector.

    https://larzm42.github.io/dom5inspector/

    click on "load mods" in the top left and select Dom enhanced 1.37 - which is about the same as 1.40 (latest version)

    it's like this.

    and like this.

    Apparently, Black Mesa
    I can't afford a rolback.

    VOTE AGAINST.

    EDIT: Kk, dropping the game. No sense in going on if my main victories are erased. Next time wait for a majority vote or something instead of reverting for a single person asking.

    Very bad etiquette.
