About the Location:
Made famous most recently by the movie 300, Thermopylae is a place of great heroism. Thermopylae ("hot gateway") is a location in Greece where a narrow coastal passage existed in antiquity. It derives its name from several natural hot water springs. The Battle of Thermopylae, as recorded by the ancient historian Herodotus, was fought in August 480 BC, between an alliance of Greek city-states and the invading Persian Empire of Xerxes I, at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held up the Persian advance for seven days in total (including three days of battle), before the rear-guard was annihilated in one of history's most famous last stands. Now you too can stage your own epic battles there!
About the Prefab:
Thermopylae is a large 21x32 map fully detailing the entire Theromopylae pass from the east gate all the way to the Persian encampment in the west. I have worked from actual maps of the area as it looked in ancient times, to capture the exact feeling of this region as it actually was. The Spartan encampment is on both sides of the Phocian wall as recorded historically, while the fleet of Persian warships is anchored north of the Persian encampment. Even the path which wound its' way through the mountains behind Spartan lines is detailed so you can recreate the final surprise attack that brought an end to the Spartans' defence of Thermopylae, through the treachery of Ephialtes.
Contains a demo module, an .erf file, a readme file, and the Bioware Water Fix Patch Hak Pak that makes certain official Bioware tilesets run a lot smoother. (To use the patch, place it top-most priority in your own module's custom content list. It uses no .2da files, so it is totally compatible with the CEP and should work with all other types of custom content packs.)
Hey all, good to hear from everybody! The water fix, basically, takes the water in certain official Bioware tilesets, such as the Tropical and the Castle Exterior Rural, and swaps the water textures for the ones used by the standard Rural tileset. This, in effect, increases your in-game FPS when using those tilesets, which was made necessary since those tilesets, by themselves, use water textures that cause a drop in FPS on certain comps. The water fix eliminates the FPS drop.
Thank you very much for the votes and the interest in this prefab. Hopefully I'll have more good things on the way soon! - Farewell 4 now, everyone! :)
