This sub mod converts the Kingdom of Italy to the new Roman Empire.
Given your arrogance, skill, and ambition you will let "L'Empereur" believe you are his minion as you reconquer Italy, the east, and eventually turn your gaze to Hispania, Gaul, and Brittania. The Roman Empire will rise again!
For the Romans, you start out identical to the Kingdom of Italy with rather normal "Auxilia" units. If you survive to tech up, by the tier 3 military building you will get your first "Legionary" unit which is more powerful. At tier 4 the full array of Legionary units will be available. My preference is toward ranged combat, so I made the units excel in that regard; the Byzantine units will be melee oriented!
Note: in pictures below many of the unit cards and flags are from early development. These have been corrected--with a lot of time and effort. . . Also, the UPC below has the Roman units and renames the Kingdom of Italy to the Roman Empire.
UPDATE (20 May 2011) v1.4: Added Urban Cohort, Roman Sappers, Rocket launchers, and a number of ships to include rocket ships. Many colors changed to deep red where possible, to include tactical battle generals and staff.
UPDATE (15 May 2011) v1.3: Added Vistula lancers, indiaman trade ship, swiss mercenaries, experimental howitzer, and 106 gun first rate. fixed unit card for Legionary Cohort to match unit. other small stat changes.
UPDATE (13 May 2011) v1.2: Added a Legionary light infantry unit, the Antesignani.
UPDATE (11 May 2011) v1.1: New area of recruitment(AoR) for many units from vanilla and some created by me. When you conquer territories you can recruit some of the local units. Unfortunately Spain and France are not AoR regions, so that will have to wait for the full mod. I made them recruitable in Switzerland for now, which is not optimal.
