I have made no awesome looking title picture lol , but i can say if you have ever seen the BETA topic in the Unit Packs Thread i decided to make the mod a Battle mod and "The 1600's 1.5" is out, so please try it out tell me how it is
This mod is about the 100 years that are overlooked alot but was the gateway to the modern-era, it was the decline of the knights and the rise of gunpowder, this mod has the strategy of medieval times and the 18th century
Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
KNOW YOUR TROOPS, WARNING: this isnt the 1700's not many guns but alot of Melee weapons use them wisely
Melee Infantry: I really wanted to put alot of diffrent Melee Units in the Mod since the 1600's still had soldiers using Melee weapons, So in a battle you want to take Melee units in consideration(i tried a huge battle half melee half gunpowder, Melee really makes a diffrence in it)
like one Melee units i like is the Spear Men
GunPowder units:There arent many Gunpwder units, they shoot in 1 line and have kindve ok or good accuracy, Guns are still the growing factor of the 1600's and will be efffective since it is a gun
one of the gunpowder weapons i found out about through research was a Lever action type weapon where you screw and unscrew the lever and dump a ball and gunpowder down the hole, that unit i called Sharpshooters they hav increased reload speed but okay accuracy
Elite Units: i added a few elite units that wasnt in my 2 BETA versions, for Spain i added the Royal Musketteers which have great accuracy and morale etc...., my favorite unit was inspired by the Frech Musketters the ones who guarded the king, they have the best accuracy, morale, attack so to any french players you got the best unit (no i didnt purposley give them the best unit i plan better units)
1.5 is out here's the download link to me the modmanager worked this time not sure bout you guys
never mind its not done
new in 1.5:
*Thanks to Shokh the mod has a campaign, please rep this man he deserves it
*Musketeers for each faction have correct names
Musketeers France= Fusiliers
Musketeers Poland= Muszkieterowie
Musketeers Prussia= Musketiere
*now almost all factions have Royal Musketeers
Standard install & launch
Unzip the file and then place this data folder into your "empire total war" folder. The system will ask you if you want integrate this data folder in the existing one - chose yes.
After that there should be an 1600 folder in your "empire total war\data" and another one in your "empire total war\data\campaigns"
At least go into "empire total war\data\1600". There you will find the 1600.bat .
Create an shortcut on your desktop, leading to this 1600.bat
Doubleclick your shortcut and a CMD Window will appear, after that it will launch ETW with all needed packfiles and an self created user.empire_script.
When you finished playing first close ETW then select again this CMD Window and press an random button to close it.
This will set back your ETW to vanilla.
Alternative install & launch
If your Empire is not on C:\ or on a partition of this hdd you will need to start this mod by hand / modmanager.
Copy the three packfiles from your data/1600 folder into your data folder
and then launch the game with modmanager, chose 1600.pack & 1600s.pack in modmanager. The 1600txt.pack will launch by its own.
So if you wanna play other mods, take care that this file is not then in your data folder anymore.
sorry only got modmanager version
