Invictus is Latin for unconquered, undefeated; our English word 'invincible' takes its root here.
Given the unfortunate news concerning the game status, we thought it best to combat an attitude of defeat with a fighting spirit.
This mod is our effort to prevent this great game from going gently into that dark night. Thus we are embarking upon a grand effort by the modding community (based around the Imperator mod COOP) to develop community-driven DLC and keep the game alive.
It is not our intent to completely overhaul the game mechanics, as we want people to be able to play the mod and understand everything while having only played Vanilla.
Discord: https://discord.gg/eaPhRbSq73. (Active community, receives weekly teasers and announcements)
Official twitter: https://twitter.com/InvictusMod
Follow our dev diaries on the PDX forums: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/mod-imperator-invictus.1473328/
In terms of suggestions, our goal is that anyone familiar with only vanilla Imperator should be able to pick up the mod and play without trouble, all features must be either historical or reasonably plausible and fun.
As this is a community project, we will listen to and work in the interest of the Imperator: Rome community and we look forward to hearing from you!
