v1.4 - 04 May 2006

The RTR Platinum Edition Community Project

This software was developed for the Rome Total Realism and Total War Center's community in an effort to enhance its game play experience.

Notes for Rome Total Realism (6) Platinum Edition:
This mod is a community based conversion of Rome Total Realism 6 Gold (RTR 6 Gold) for use with the Rome - Total War (RTW) v1.5 game engine. The many fans of Rome Total Realism have come together to make the porting of RTR 6 Gold to the RTW v1.5 game engine possible.

With the conversion to the RTW v1.5 game engine, RTR Platinum will be able to have the night-fighting ability, more diplomacy option and will be able to take advantage of the AI improvements and general game engine improvements available with the RTW v1.5 patch.

So, while we patiently wait, or not so patiently, for the upcoming release of RTR v7.0 using the BI v1.6 game engine, we can now enjoy some of the new features that will be part of RTR v7.0 in our ol' favorite RTR v6.0. Further information concerning this mod can be found in the RTR Sub-Forum devoted to this mod.

The Entire RTR Development Group members, that are not listed above, for creating RTR Gold 6.0, without which, we'd have had nothing to port!
Additionally, the following people are to be thanked for allowing us to use their mods in this port:

Darth Vader (DarthFormations: added to patch_v0.3.rar)
Archer (SkyMod: included in beta 1.0)
SignifierOne (Animations pack v0.8, without which it would have taken much longer to make this)
