Rome: Total Realism (or RTR) is a complete modification pack for the computer game Rome: Total War, intended to rectify historical inaccuracies in the original game. The mod has been featured in several major gaming sites and magazines, such as PC Gamer (US), PC Gamer (UK), and GameSpot. Rome: Total Realism, being a mod for Rome: Total War v1.0/1.2, had an estimated 80,000 downloads on the first day after version 6.0 was released. It was followed by versions 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and finally 6.0 Gold, a compilation of all the previous patches and additional features. The unofficial "Platinum" Edition is a port of 6.0 Gold for the newer RTW v1.5 / BI v1.6, with some bug-fixes for problems found in 6.0 Gold and some new content (2 new playable factions, 4 turns per year).
The RTR team is currently working on Rome: Total Realism VII : Grand Campaign, which uses the newer Barbarian Invasion (expansion to Rome: Total War) engine. The mod will further improve historical accuracy and introduce new game-play concepts. Several previews have been released on the RTR forum.
Famous quotes containing the words realism and/or total:
“I hate vulgar realism in literature. The man who could call a spade a spade should be compelled to use one. It is the only thing he is fit for.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“By sharing the information and observations with the caregiver, you have a chance to see your child through another pair of eyes. Because she has some distance and objectivity, a caregiver often sees things that a parents total involvement with her child doesnt allow.”
