I'm thinking of upgrading the map to Westeros 1.2 (which will provide us room for another player or two if they join); but while I have a copy already (which looks quite decent via map editor), Llamaserver doesn't provide download links to it. I think I found it at one of the Shrapnel Dom3 threads. Anyone want to check on that? (I've got to go do something else for a few hours this afternoon... something... TAXING... ;) )
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Yes we're still open. With 10 players we're getting a bit tight on the Warhammer map; Westeros will give us room for a few more.

Go ahead and put up a thread on Desra and Shrapnel, please.

That's it! -- I know there's a 1.5 version uploaded to Llamaserver, too, but I don't know what's different about it.

Ok I have downloaded the map and the mods; is there a guide somewhere that can walk me through their installation?  This is all a learning experience for me so I am not concerned as much with the outcome as much as I am with how much strategic insight I can absorb in the process. 

So is there a guide for installing the mods, and the map?  I may very well have more questions but I am hoping you can point me toward a thread where someone else has already answered them like the mods and maps and whatnot.  I'll keep looking but I'm hoping someone has a good one bookmarked already...

claes - dont worry about it - all happy to help

download the maps and extract the folder to wherever - it doesnt need to be your dom3 folder

look inside the new folder - there will be 2 files - i THINK .rgb, .map or .tgb - copy these, go to your maps folder inside DOM 3 and simply copy them into there - thats it

to test, open dom 3 and start a new game - the map should show in there

note though i think Jason is map twiddling at the minute and/or he may be picking a new map soon

To install a mod, just extract the files in the archive to the mods folder in your Dom3 folder.  It's as simple as that.  Mods must also be activated, which you do from the main menu in the game ("Mod Preferences").

Great!  Thanks, I have the mods mentioned in the OP enabled and have the map in the map folder - it shows up in the game.  Next step is creating my pretender god correct?  But I don't start a game, I just save the god and then I will be emailing that file to the server for turn 0 am I on the right track so far?

Spot on - I forget which menu its in but yeah stay clear of the game itself and just choose the create pretender option, build your god and your dominion scales and save it - send that file to the llama server - check the first post for the subject heading to place on the mail and just attach your pretender file to it - you should get an email back saying he/her/it has been received 

When the game starts you will also need a folder in saved games in dom 3 folder with the same name as the game - this is where you drop the game turns to and find the files to send to llama

I would like to join as Pythium. This would be my first multiplayer game. I think I installed all the mods but do we have to use the sprite mods? In my opinion they look worse then the standard sprites.

as far as i know it doesnt care what graphics mod you have - but it will look for CBM - i would say the best way is to not import them, get the starting turn and press go - if it needs them it will tell you it cant continue without mod XXXX

and welcome to the forums and the game
