    Possibly you might expand on the LOC file issue?

    Inquiring minds want to know......
    The error with the battle flags is in the Names.Txt. There are some missing entries for some factions and the order sequence for factions is switched around. I was able to change the default flag but haven't figured out the problem in there as it is pretty "messy" in terms of entries.

    The portrait bug can be fixed by eliminating the portrait override in the super.txt and adding 50 portraits to the Catholics in the /campmap/portraits directory.

    I have joined this board for one purpose: I so hate 3ddownloads. WOW I hate it. I've tried downloading your mod about 10 times and after waiting 40 minutes my computer tells me 3ddownloads can't be found So yes... I hate 3ddownloads.
    There's nowhere else to find your mod eh BKB?

    Okay I got it downloaded, followed the steps (except one) and the thing crashes when I "end turn" I think someone else had the same problem. This is the step I couldn't figure out.

    8) Go into 'Campmap/Portraits' and copy 'Vikings' into your 'Campmap/Portraits' folder

    Ummm... in your mod file I can't find 'Campmap/Portraits' so I don't know what to copy. Am I missing something?

    Hi,

    I play your mod, it has many values, but it is not well balanced. I have decided to do sth about it - mainly I want to make it a little bit more realistic. I have changed "this and that" and now I would like to present it to you.
    Files: Unit- build- and projective. As a matter of the last one I have noticed that there is to little affluence
    of shield and armour on harming. I have made tests of spearmen: with and without shield Large it was the same. In
    fact the difference should be much bigger. As a matter of other files - I have made greater changes in unit- rather
    then in build-. I would like to send it to you in order you judge yourself wether these changes make play more attractive.
    Beside I have balanced startpos a little bit and I have added new graphics to the symbols of units in battelfield in order to make them more accurate.
    If you are interested (or anybody) please send me a massage.

    Na ra

    This might be a stupid question, but I have Medmod installed and I was wondering if downloading and installing your mod would overwrite it. I don't have the hard drive space to do a fresh install. Thanks for any replies.

    Thumbs up

    BKB, it looks very good

    I have a couple of suggestions...

    You may want to consider removing the Almoravids, and replacing them with the Zirids based in Tunisia. The Almoravids were succeeded by the Almohads, so you can use the same faction to represent both dynasties.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some unique Sicilian units like Sicilian Norman Knights in early, and Sicilian Feudal & chivalric knights later on.

    As for Muslim Sicilian units, in my mods I created a Sicilian Saracen Archer unit, based on Ottoman infantry (they wore chain mail). Norman Sicily should not have the whole range of Muslim troops, just the Archers and Horse archers.

    I will be making these changes to my copy.

    Good work, and thanks

    Do they (The Irish) have ships in the way, blocking your ships path to Ireland. If there are ships of another faction in the way you can't invade their lands (the sea is blockaded), sorry if thats not the problem or if I sound patronising in any way.

    Hope I've been of assistance,

    Fantastic BKB nice work

    Your SuperEarly Mod was very nice and i love play it.

    You said the Portuguese are one of several new playable factions, right?
    do you creat any special Portuguese unit?

    The Portuguese armys in the middle ages were like the other iberic kingdoms - ginetes, javelinmen, Almughavars, Feudal Man-At-Arms, Feudal Knights and so on...
    and as far as i know there wasn't any Portuguese special unit during middle ages, except two military orders - The Knights Of Avis (created in 1175) and The Knights Of Christ (created in 1312). These knights were very similar to knights Santiago, Templar, Hospitaller or Teutonic. For example, The Knights Of Avis were created to defend the province of Alentejo and the city of Évora from the Almohads.

    good work

    All Right good news, BKB

    I don't want to disturb you, but if you need any help with the Portuguese faction - names, Kings, princeses, nobles, heroes, etc, please let me know

    good work

    Exactly I was a bit numbed the first time I saw some of the new units you created, specially a unit called Portuguese Marine???

    BTW, some of the Portuguese names are incorrect. Some are Brasilian not Portuguese. If you want, I can send you a correct version of the Names text and another of the Heroes text, refering to the Portuguese.

    But, the fact that you've put so many factions playing is fantastic

    Again, great work

    Well... like i said before, there are no specific Portuguese units in the middle ages.
    However, the Portuguese Kings and feudal lords armys, used infantry units (long sword, heavy shield and armored) - like swabian swordsmen, feudal man-at-arms, feudal foot knights or gallowglasses; if you creat a "Portuguese Swordsmen" or "Portuguese Man-At-Arms" (or both) i think that it will be acceptable.
    Another kind of units widely used were Crossbows (not Pavise Crossbows) and Archers, especialy in the 13 and 14 centuries. Some scholars said the Portuguese archers, used in several specific campains against the spanish that keep Portugal independent, were similar to English Longbows, but i don't know if they were so good as them...
    By the way...The Knights Of Avis and Christ also existed as foot knights not only cavalry.

    I hope this can help and...

    Good work

    No, I don't think there wasn't anything different from normal FMAA and CMAA.

    No. You must be mixing them up with the few English Longbow Mercenaries that were hired during the 1383-1385 Crisis for Independance. They also fought at Aljubarrota. Portuguese used mainly crossbows.

    That's true.


    Besides the Orders, the only specific unit I can remember was the Almograves:

    Quote Originally Posted by [b
    Quote[/b] ]Almogávar, Almogárave, Almogavre and Almograve (Portuguese language) are words derived from the Arab al-mogauir.

    They were warriors that performed Almogavarias or Almogavrias (Portuguese language) all over the Iberian Peninsula during the Reconquista.


    What was a Almogavaria or Almogavria?

    It was a raid, performed by these men from time to time, against Moorish ocupied lands, to pillage, steal and burn. These raids were performed by the Christians as well as by the Moors (against Christian occupied lands), with the objective to destroy crops, food reserves and inflict economic damage, as well as reap the benefits of looting.

    The real definition for Almograve (Portuguese language) is FRONTIER MEN.

    Except for the professional troops of the King, of the noblemen and the knights of the religious orders, these men were the most professional and capable of the soldiers available to the Portuguese.

    Another interesting note:

    -Most of them were mounted men.

    Regarding equipment, all that was possible to get was part of their gear (spears, swords, axes, shields, daggers, knifes, bows, chain mail, helms, etc...).
    To MOD them maybe a kind of early less-armoured Gendarmes is the most similar. Although they are like heavier Jinetes. Available in Early and High.

    I just remembered something else. In the Portuguese-Castillian War of 1383-1385 (Crisis for Independance) caused by the death of heirless D. Fernando I, the Portuguese Knights always fought dismounted due to the vast superior enemy forces. They were like CFK, but used pikes instead of poleaxes. The closest thing you can have to them, in the game, is SAP. You could call them Portuguese Foot Knights or Portuguese Dismounted Knights. Only available in Late.

    Hope these 2 tips help...
