6.0j Pre-Beta Features

- New BUM transformed light units mainly for the Scythians.
.New Scythian Head Hunting Maiden unit, now taking the form of semi-armored horse archer unit mounted on fast horse.
.New Scythian Horde units
.New Scythian Virgin Archers
.New Sarmatian Virgin Cavalry Skin
- brand new Amazon Militia Archers
- brand new Amazon Militia Horse Archers animation and skins
- new Amazon Longbow Archers,
- new Amazon Companion Horse Archers animation and skins.
- The number of warriors in advanced tech units have been reduced.
- New animation for Libyan Heavy Cavalry
- All male light horse units are now mounting medium horses instead.
- thoroughbred horse as tradable commodity, and units with race horse can only be raised in the regions where the thoroughbred horses are available. The exception being if the region has circus maximus or higher equestrian sports facility.
- 6.0j also tries to refine the previous BUM concept detail regarding attire.
The change is, female light units does not mean it has to be without clothing. It is true for mounted light horse units because any extra weight would increase the load, and for the light horse mount, it is of paramount consideration to keep the weight to a minimum. But the foot units do not have to have the same weight restriction. So for the Scythian changes, some of non-combat oriented light foot units have animal pelt as their attires. There will be no uniform because according to the BUM principles, the cost would be prohibitive. So in a way this is a logical extension to the Thracian Peltast unit change, in which instead of wearing fabricated garment as in the original RTW, it has animal pelt as the attire. With the animal pelt as the unit attire, the cost is justified, otherwise it is not. Still, for CQC light units equipped with shields, many of the units will have naked upper torso and limbs, because this is the only way to guarantee free movement during combat and field maneuver.

- Because the above changes in light units will make unit identification more difficult (Amazon TW has the banner turned off to make the battle more realistic), each peasant unit as well as light unit is given a standard bearer for easier unit identification on the battlefield.
