View Full Version : GrimStas Thrace Minimod
I have just been messing around with Thrace, to make them viable, in the campaign.
to do this i added in some units:
Thracian Nobles: which use the Thracian Visigoth cavalry skin (used by the Thracian Generals Bodyguard) these are the equivalent of other barbarian noble cavalry, they are also recruitble at a third tier barracks.
Thracian Levy Pikeman: Required a small reskin, no unit card as of yet, but ill make one asap, can be recruited from a tier 2 barrack
Also the generals start off with differant units in the army.
When i find a free upload site ill post it here, but for now im going to sleep (its 3.00 am in scotland)
OK, i found a site and ill upload when i get back from College ~D
Here it is!! Beta version 1 uploaded!
You can download from one of two links
This doesnt give Thrace Byzantium as i experianced some strange CTD's but that will be corrected in the next version
EDIT: Links work now......and i have just completed GrimSta's Balanced Baresark mod....keep ypur eyes out for it later on :P
Some Screenshotsare in order methinks!!
Here are the Levy Pikemen
Thracian Noble Cavalry
And one more Thracian Noble Cavalry :)
Looks pretty fine to me! I might have to DL this and play the campaign as Thrace now! The Thracians have always not been quite attractive enough to me, but now they are. Nice work ~:) !
Cheers mate!!! (thats why i made them, to make people want to play as them)
Pompei the Great
The 'civilized' Greek barbarian faction. Yea, Thrace
Nice skins..are you interested to join a mod prject with me?? PM me...
Nice, its good to see more mini-mods. They're relatively easy to acomplish and very handy.
Thanks Guys!!! This is great, i have had more replies here than at TWC ~D
I was thinking of expanding it, not to become a major mod, it would still be just under a meg but there is a list of things i want to add to Thrace (Getic Horse Archers are one, as is giving them Propontis) but it is nothign that serious...Thrace still needs a little more balancing you see, but thanks for the feedback ~D
New Features in the upcomming version 2.
Getic Horse Archers, Thracian Capital at Byzantium, changes the garrisons of some cities and puts Sautes in Byzantium, also gives Thrace Heavy Peltasts and unit cards/textures for new units. Bastarnae will also have slightly higher attack, lower defence, armour piercing and horde formation.
Hope you look forward to this treat.
OK, i found a couple of new unit skins that CA havent used for Thrace, such as proper Noble Cavalry, and some sort of heavy pikeman/hoplite soldier/officer, so release is going to be slightly delayed.
can mods please delete this thread ~:cheers:
