So close now but the end game is no slouch - because of yesterday's storm I had a good 3 hour stretch to prepare a series of armies and fleets for the final push on the final required province to win...Musashi. One more 3 hour stretch should secure my win and avoid another shamefrul dispray! Finally.

That's the stuff Gusimoto. I played with the Darthmod but never tried the Radious mod though the horde of new units included looked very tempting. Anything really special among them? And did he fix the naval battles? All I could ever get the AI to do was just sit still pointing their broadsides at me as my ships closed on them.

There are tons of new units but descriptions on them are non-existent since the game's online encyclopedia looks to be uneditable, which is a shame. In my more built up provinces I can have as many as 10 rows of recruitable units available...almost 100 units according to my new math.

This final push is going to be a bloodbath-there is no direct way to get to Musashi without taking 1-2 other provinces first. I wanted to avoid that but it looks to be unavoidable. Going to have to do this the hard way.

In my Darthmod campaign, I used agents to clear a path for my armies by bribing enemy Generals and killing their leaders, etc. It helped a lot. Don't know if Radious changed the agent effectiveness or not. Of course the down side was experienced enemy agents could do the same to me. It was a tough slog too but do-able.

I have some agents moving in but to be honest I've reached that point where going through each turn with tons of agents, armies, etc. is turning into a chore. I'm ready to wrap this campaign up after upwards of 200 or so turns. It's an awesome game but I got me some fatigue.

Either Homeworld: Remastered or Mad Max. To cleanse the palette you see. Then...TW: Charlemagne, probably as the Scandinavians!
