So now it is perfectly possible to avoid civil wars if you manage politics right. You do that via actions, getting promotions or by having generals win battles and skilling up. But as the game goes on and you expand it will be harder and harder to avoid civil wars.
If you continue an old Grand Campaign save, during or after a Civil War, the new Politics screen in the Faction Overview will not display correctly, due to the civil war mechanics changing to allow multiple civil wars. These saves can still be continued, but the Politics screen will not be useful in this case.
Plenty of great mods exist for many of the franchise's best titles. The ones that are the most fun to experiment with are the total conversion and overhaul mods. Total conversion mods tend to change everything from the ground up, often letting players experience new and fantastical realms. Overhaul mods keep the basic structures in place but seek to improve upon them in a variety of ways. Both types are assuredly worth the player's time.
As it happens, plenty of stellar mods exist for every entry in the series to take their respective games to the next level. Some of the most impressive examples are the total conversion and overhaul mods. This list has been expanded to include a few more worthwhile entries for fans to enjoy.
The setting of Total War: Attila revolves around the fall of the Roman Empire under the weight of barbarian invasion. It's a much tougher game compared to Total War: Rome 2 as managing a large realm is a more complicated proposition. Like its predecessor, Attila also has a nice collection of total conversion and overhaul mods.
The Constantine: Rise of Christianity mod examines the final days of the Tetrarchy and the rise of Constantine the Great. When Rome once more descends into civil war the player has the option of taking control of one of the leading tetrarchs of the empire. The goal is to reunite Rome under the leadership of a single emperor, which is not a simple endeavor.
Factions have unique mechanics that you will focus on during their campaign, which may drastically alter the way you play and impact your journey. When playing as Kislev, for example, you'll find yourself in an internal power struggle on the brink of a civil war. You must gather devotion and supporters so that you can overpower the opposing Kislev faction and claim the throne. Whichever sub-faction earns 600 supporters first can consolidate the other kingdom and potentially earn more settlements and armies. The Legion of Chaos, on the other hand, can heavily customise their Lord and available units by dedicating sacrifices to the different Chaos gods, which makes it an extremely violent faction that benefits from slaughtering and razing settlements. Diplomacy is a lot harder for all of the Chaos factions (Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch, Slaanesh, and the Legion of Chaos), as they are seen as a scourge on the land.
If your armies need to rest, send them to a nearby settlement that should be safe from attack. They can then recover in the garrison before heading back out into the field. If you decide that you don't need the army anymore, we recommend dismissing the troops to cut down on costs. Maintaining an army costs gold, so you'll want to keep a keen eye on your treasury total at the top of the screen to make sure you can afford all of the upkeep costs for each of your armies.
This course introduces the distinct as well as shared ideas and institutions of the major civilizations in East Asia: China and Japan. We will focus on two historical processes: the making of a cultural system of East Asia when Japan was under the influence of Chinese culture. We will discuss how, before the nineteenth century, despite certain shared cultural elements, indigenous cultures and unique historical developments of these countries had resulted in contrasting societies. The second process witnessed the decline of China in the nineteenth century as a dominant political and cultural power in East Asia. Attention will be given to the different paths each of these countries had taken in its attempt to build a modern state in response to the profound challenge and intrusion of European imperialism. One of the important objectives of this course is to challenge many of the stereotypes about the cultures and histories of East Asia. Readings include several very interesting literary works and an autobiography.
The history of the Jews in modern Europe embraces both some of the greatest achievements and the most calamitous failures of cross-cultural symbiosis. The history of the survival of Jewish culture in Europe, and its adaptation in changing circumstances, presents a fascinating study of the adaptability and resilience of a civilization. The vicissitudes of the Jews' status and treatment in European societies reveals a unique insight into the responses of European states and peoples to the challenge of pluralism. This course will explore both the internal dimension of the European Jewish experience and the wider question of the role and significance of the Jews in European political and cultural history.
This course begins with an examination of the Greek polis and the life that it nourished. Included is a glance at Greek agriculture and the course of the agricultural year. The flowering of Greek civilization is examined by looking at the individualism of the Lyric poets and the scientific and philosophical thought of the pre-Socratics. The evolution of Sparta as a major and unique Greek state is traced and contrasted with the rise of Athens and the development of democratic government. The course then focuses on the Greek response to the menace of Persia. Athens on the attack--the creation of the Delian League and how Athens reduced the League to an empire are treated in relation to the alienation of Sparta. The course ends with the great clash between Athens and Sparta in the Peloponnesian War. Textbook: A.P. Burn, The Penguin History of Greece, and C.W. Formara, Archaic Time to the End of the Peloponnesian War; final examination.
"Stuart Age" refers to the royal family, but the 17th century saw two decades in which the rule of that family was contested, civil war broke out, a king was executed, and an "Inter-regnum" (1649-60) occurred. We will explore the political, religious, social and economic background to those momentous events; the rapid growth of radicalism in mid-century and its surprisingly rapid disintegration; and how the new "public spaces" opened up in mid-century made the later Stuart period (1660-88) very different from the world before the war. Course requirements include a book review, participation in a debate, and the midterm and final examinations.
This discussion class investigates the character of American political tolerance and freedom in times of crisis, through a series of case studies: images of the American "enemy"; the Red Scare after World War I; the internment of Japanese-Americans in World War II; McCarthyism (the anchor for the course); and the resentments generated by protest movements in the late 1960s. The post-9/11 "war on terrorism" brings into urgent focus issues of citizenship, subversion, civil liberties, and the imperatives of imposed political orthodoxy and unity raised by these case studies. Analyses of contemporary events will therefore be used to help frame historians' opposing interpretations and a range of primary sources: propaganda posters, several feature films of the times, and a photocopies documents collection of public opinion polls, internal government memoranda, Congressional hearings and speeches, and magazine articles. In addition to exploring these sources, students will complete an in-class exam, two 7-10 page analytic essays, and additional assignments staking out their positions on major issues of the course.
Millions upon millions of people experienced the unimaginable and unprecedented power, totality, disruption and destruction of the two World Wars, the topic with which this course will attempt to wrestle with. The First and Second World Wars, separated from one another by a mere generation, unleashed severe rupture, dislocation and disorientation for all those who they affected, insuring that the world was indeed a much different place once the cannons were silenced. We will examine the impact of both the First and Second World Wars on a wide variety of historical subjects in order to determine not only the manner in which war altered their material lives and surrounding physical world but also how the conflicts altered them mentally and psychologically.
This seminar will explore the attitudes, assumptions, and expectations held toward warfare and militaries by different cultures over time. Relevant subjects include: expectations concerning battle, concepts of combat as a personal test, tolerance of losses suffered and inflicted in fighting, attitudes regarding violence toward civilians, tolerance or condemnation of rape in war, etc. Examination of the lives and beliefs of common soldiers and the role of women within militaries are of interest here. With proper arrangements, there is no limit as to the time period or geographical area that can be studied.
Understanding of Philippine history is becoming increasingly important in light of contemporary global developments. While the "First World" has seen the rise of flexible capitalism and as new Asian "tigers" like China, Taiwan, and Singapore have developed transnational systems that maximize their position in international trade, the Philippines has paradoxically increased its export of labor and professional personnel while increasingly attracting outsourcing ventures. Next to Mexico, the Philippines is the world's second largest exporter of foreign workers, with remittances totaling $8 billion, a significant proportion of the country's gross national product. Filipinos today are found throughout East and Southeast Asia, Australia, the Pacific Islands, the Middle East, Europe, and North America. 2b1af7f3a8
