Total War: ATTILA Discussion
People with Titan, and SLI Titans even, can't max it out, so yea, it really is horrible optimised
You can build Wooden Palisades on non-provincial capital settlements, although it takes a hell of a long time because it's the last settlement upgrade: "Fortified Settlement".
10/10 would build ****ty walls again.
At the very least, Attila is certainly a more well polish turd at launch compared to Rome II, and it seems to feel more atmospheric and chaotic. I am clinching my buttcheeks trying to re-locate all my legions as Western Rome to Southern Gaul and Italy, using the Brittanic Isles, Hispania, and Africa as a buffer zone while I regroup my economy and public order, before reconquering(which actually happened historically.)
The battles are more-or-less on Par with Rome II's Emperor Edition with a bit more satisfying sieges. Save the missing mechanics of guard mode ONCE AGAIN and blood(**** you CA and Sega for making another Blood DLC, which will happen) The satisfying re-introduction of razing settlements to the ground and the introduction of the "Scorched Earth" abandon settlement mechanics(Although I can't burn down the Arena or Circus Maximus in Rome, which is complete nonsense. CA pls. You give me all these buildings in the battle that are for show that aren't destructible as a slap in the face, didn't you?) are all certainly welcome.
TL;DR as every other ****ing person has said about Attila: This is what Rome II should have been. A fairly solid release with good atmosphere. Sure, it didn't succeed Shogun 2, but it is certainly sitting in a better spot than Rome II did.
The UI is also significantly better organized because as we all know, Rome II's interface was all over the place, like a mad woman's breakfast.
Diplomacy is slighty better, but I only say slightly. It still suffers from the AI refusing to accept negotiations for no reason given other than some generic stats like "Hostile actions towards another faction" or "Grand Empire" instead of actual reasoning. They still try to extort the heck out of you with ridiculous offers, although not as bad as Rome II's.
Yes, Optimization is still a problem with Attila, but that's pretty standard for pretty much all Total War games post-Medieval 2, save Shogun 2's solid release with some hiccups.

I get 45-60fps on Default Very High settings at 1920x1080, so that isn't too bad considering my hardware isnt very good.

The "squalor" aspect is ruinous. Try to build an economically viable empire that doesn't die of disease every other turn, I dare you. It won't happen.
Unkillable faction: f**k the Huns. They. Won't. Die. Defeat every army they have, assassinate every general, kill Attila personally...they come back. This is the first time I've ever met this in a TW game and I've played all of them except for Napoleon. It sucks.
Everything else in the game is great, and a lot of fun. These two gripes will probably mean that I only ever play through a single campaign.
Regarding squalor, you could just have been unlucky with choice of faction, because some, have very serious issues with it true, but again, that is intendet, and some factions can almost entirely ignore squalor reducing buildings
