IF I WORE SOMETHING UNDER IT,
THEN IT WOULD BE A SKIRT!"
Bravo ! C'est une grande avancé pour le modding de ETW/NTW
hmm I wonder if its possible to make the zulu throw their spears while they are charging at the British,would be rather excellent.
Can anyone tell me how I install the hotfix please. I can't see where I am supposed to drop these file into.
Small problem here....I have just been informed that Zulus never had any throwing spears, they only had the short spear?? this information is from my brother who is an avid historian, is this correct? if were not looking for historical accuracy then thats fine.
The Brigadier has beaten me to it anyway here is some information.
Pre Anglo/Zulu war that would be correct Toon as Shaka forbid warriors to carry them. However in the war of 1879 they did use them. At Isandlwana a great number of spears were thrown at Durnfords men in the Donga by the Zulu regiments forming the left horn. In fact these very regiments have throwing spears in this mod. Some formations of British troops making a back to back last stand at Isandlwana were broken up with throwing spears.
“In battle the troops were lightly equipped apart from a shield - any armour would have been impractical and useless anyway when facing European armies with guns. The elaborate dress seen in many films is a misconception and mainly ceremonial. Standard weapons were a short broad bladed stabbing spear and a heavy club, Shaka introduced the short stabbing spear and warriors did not carry spares so did not throw them in battle. Some regiments re-introduced throwing spears when facing the European and Boer armies but by this time they were also using looted firearms and primitive muskets traded to them by Arab traders.”
“Zulu weapons were simple, but deadly killing tools. The IKLWA was a lethal stabbing spear designed with a broad, 45 centimetre blade and a meter long handle. A longer spear, about two meters long, was used for throwing to soften up enemy formations before the Zulus attack with their beast’s horn formation.”
I am having the same problem when I put the hotfix in the data folder nothing happens the textures stay the same and there are no explosive shells, where else do they go if not the data folder?
Here is the correction of the spear in game
archive contains :
battle_entities.tsv ((maybe Zulu's more reactive))
projectiles.tsv (( the spear settings))
The spear rigid_model which is called "projectile_tomahawk.rigid_model" for the AI
(+ one normal file , so the texture of the new face Umbonambi , look better)
to install just import the tsv in the mod using erasmus PFM
ok thank you for your reply much appreciated
Don`t you think that units which are recruited from native british men [ highlanders , red coats etc ] should be recruited in one most important province [ f.e. alexandria ] as a reinforcements from Britain and should took more turns to do [ you know , transport ships etc. let`s say 6?] Other cities or villages conquered by brits could create only african native infantry [sudan felah in 2]?
