We love you too Gus despite these hellish cauldrons you sent us to. Damn, they really do steam don't they? Must be a very high quality charcoal they use down here.

Before I got to Grogpublic-ing tonight, I uninstalled all my DEI modules, since I read it's a good idea to make sure each is fully installed by Steam in order before adding the next piece. Not sure if I did that originally or batch installed them.

Also, there's an older 5-part version of DEI, which has been superceded by the (now) 10 part one.

And... I count 40 different playable factions across 13 different cultures. Not sure how this compares to vanilla.  :hug:

When I get the time I will download, DEI sounds too great to not try.

Are there different starting periods a available for the grand campaign?

All Grand Campaigns start at 278 BC but Dresden, the author, advertises 'Historical Starts' for each faction. For the Romans, you begin at war with the Etruscans to the north and Epirus to the east lead by Pyrrus the Great who holds Tatras on the Adriatic coast so it's kind of close to the later war against him. So probably something like that for each faction. I love the unit cards and the Skills Tree for each character as they level-up.  O0

I think it modifies the various grand campaigns, and those are what have the various starting dates. I don't recall if it modifies start dates already available in the grand campaigns.

Thanks guys, I will watch the above later, clean out all my other mods and install. If I can play the 3rd century crisis campaign with DEI I will be a happy plebe.

Has this modder done any mods like this for the Attila grand campaign?
