Special thanks to Ice Torque,For his magnificent BI WarMap. Ramon Gonzales y Garcia, For the use of the IBFD units, Agraes for the use of Arthurian TW Units, and Mylae,(wonderful buildings) Attila, IBFD Mod Founder, and the IBFD team for letting me use their great work. The work put into making quality mods by them is truly remarkable. Thanks again Ramon for allowing me to display this mod on this noble forum.
New City level infra structure gov buildings.
Treasury building: needed to build upper tier economic buildings in a military city
logistica Engineering building
logistica logistics building: needed to build upper tier military buildings in an economic city
logistica Engineer Corps building
Will allow the military and economic cities to build buildings outside of their ascribed predispositions: Military cities can build high level economic buildings and likewise for economic cities. Capital cities remain supreme in all aspects of building.
2. Empire East: Master Fabrica building.
Only in Constantinople
3. Prerequisite: Master Fabrica
An advanced infantry-cavalry-Strategikon-barracks and unit(s)-for Empire East: davidharvey1 idea.
better armoured troops
4. Horse Stud farms: impacts trade more for Nomadic and Hun cultures
5. Mod will be in a Mod switcher format....By Ramon Gonzales y Garcia
6. General unit ...attributes increased. Hit points back to 1
7. very limited number of sapping units will be only recruited at the new siege_engineer building.
8. redid many unit armour stats.
9. Further Blended in Pics and Gaels.
When either the Pics or the Gaels conquer each others territory they will be able to recruit some of the others factions units. They will although have separate textures thus appearing differently in the game battles.
10. Britannia Question
Due to the large number of provinces in Britain(Hibernia, and Pict land) The ability to build the higher military and economic technologies will be non existent in many of the cities.
11. Core buildings starting with the governors villa(large town) will be a hearth of sorts for a factions advanced unit. This will up tempo the game a bit and give factions a strong unit early on in the game. This will be more magnified with the Saxons for they will be able to eventually recruit the units below by the creation of the Imperial palace.
12. Added several Slav units such as an armoured Chosen Noble and a others(with some texture manipulation) including the candidati bodyguard.
13. Revised several provinces on the map.
14. Scolots regional province and city corrections.
16. From the Ostrogoth palace.. the Saiones(Ostrogoth elite late units) can be recruited.
