Ooh you mentioned the magic word...Persia.

Are they playable?

Yes and no. The maps in Aggro/Impi (even with the new engine) aren't nearly as large as in some other games -- FoGEmp or Imperator being the primary contemporary comparisons (or the Total War series as another, or Crusader Kings, leaving aside the global maps of Paradox system games after CK2/3).

So in the main Imperiums campaign, Persia is the rebel Achaeminid Empire in Anatole (western Asia minor), specifically the satrapies of Lydia, Caria, Mysia, and Phrygia.

Italy isn't even on the map; it's just Greek-culture areas (up to around Byzantium's straits) and western Asia Minor, for 91x62 hexes.


Perhaps relatedly, I'm not sure if one of us mentioned this earlier, but unlike Aggro, Impi has full multiplayer support.  :smitten:

Ah Jason....is that  using the old fashioned email exchange system or does it use an inbuilt lobby for technophobe neanderthals like me ? I am away from my PC at the minute so can't check but I imagine that could be a hoot.

It's a lobby system, with the host game acting as server. So the game can be played Asynch (with emails sent by the lobby system, as far as I can tell, like the PBEM+++ system for Matrix), or 'live' with the gathered players together in real time.

Italy will be on the map when Alexander DLC comes out. And i will eat my hat if the next map won't include Gauls and Spain.



Please note my presence in the video (second guy in the video  :D)

Custom map games typically max out at 6000 hexes (by comparison the main campaign game of 91x62 = 5642), but editing a config file value can increase this maximum.

So even though the main campaign map area doesn't cover nearly as much as other games (only northern and southern Grecian and barbie areas to western Asia Minor), there's a lot of detail to what's there.

Oh cool.

Once have a handle on all the mechanics that may be a good thing to try.

Cheers

....Really looking forward to the Alexander DLC too.

There are only 17 workshop items so far, almost all of them (even the fantasy mod) being based on the main campaign map. There's a medieval Europe map however.
