    That is real talent right there.

    We are not going to add that animation in since it involves some work on the cas files and textures so not worth the effort or time which could be better used in other parts of the mod.

    Siege suggestions (I've seen it in other mods):

    1. Wall towers shots with balista projectiles (not arrows, not fiery arrows). They can't burn siege towers/rams, but can destroy them. Normally they destroy them faster than arrows, so attacker needs much more equipment. Also wall towers do not shot inside, so they are real defenders, no overpowered ultimate weapon. Once enemy is inside, only troops can save a day.

    2. Siege towers shoots with arrows when they drive towards walls. Looks very realistic and cause some damage to defenders even if attacker don't have missile troops.

    Income sources.
    1. I think that building a mine in CATW is a waste of resources. For 4800 denarii and 5 turns you can get +200 denarii per turn. That means mine can bring first income after 24 turns. And even after that mining income will be far less than farming or taxes/trade. I would prefer +600-800 income per turn. Imagine that gold/silver mines had some value in ancient times
    2. Military structure should cost in upkeep (-1% tax bonus for level at least). So people will need to think if it just that brilliant idea to build in every city those Royal Barracks-Royal Stables-Royal Siege Workshop)

    Graphics.
    1. I have seen that some mods replace watchtowers (pictures and text) with outposts. A very handsome. Maybe they would give permission to use that pictures?
    (Diadochi, Extended Cultures, Extended Greek Mod to name a few that has it)
    2. Hellenistic auxiliary barracks picture has wrong alpha channel background.

    taxable_income_bonus bonus -1
    taxable_income_bonus bonus -2
    taxable_income_bonus bonus -3
    taxable_income_bonus bonus -4
    taxable_income_bonus bonus -5


    Building bonuses: just a thought: shouldn't mercenary buildings "give" some malus to law value? The more mercenaries in the city, the more "vigorous men"
