    @all, thanks guys
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    I will present units by drops daily or weekly as many things on them are WIP(descriptions, some graphics would be added, etc)


    post#2 will concern osco-umbrian/roman/etruscan units
    post#3 will concern celt/venetic/ligurian and eventually later insubre units
    post#4 will concern mostly western greek colonialists and AOR warriors which were threats to the existence of their outposts in the barbaric world. We will see that somes were at contrary auxilaries in their armies.


    The approach is essentially due to geographic convenience.

    It is great to focus on this time period. Livius text is great too. I was going to congratulate you for your writing! Which type of font do you used?

    Update(open the spoiler)
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    -Fixed Boii military grouping
    -Fixed Senones Unit Caps(based on political importance of your generals, the more they grown as individuals, the more they can recruit Ambactes and Solduries)
    -Added some graphics on etruscans and senones.
    -Etruscans should be now a little more harder to play


    _____________________________________
    -New Etruscan political parties(cities):
    *Velch
    *Tarchna
    *Clevsin
    *Rusellae
    *Velzna
    *Arretim


    you as player are the Zilath Mech Rasnal, the supreme magistrate of etruscan federation, these political parties are etruscan cities.


    _____________________________________
    -New Roman political parties(gens)
    *Cornelii
    *Manlii
    *Fabii
    *Aemilii
    *Claudii


    These are importants roman Houses of that era, your one is Gens Valeria.


    _____________________________________
    -New Samnites political parties(tribes)
    *Pentri
    *Caraceni
    *Caudini
    *Hirpini
    *Frentani(they were into samnite tribal federation without being really into...)


    Your own party is "Meddiss Tovtiks", that is the supreme magistrate of samnites, incidently generalissimo in war-time.

    @Wilhem123, thanks, there is some very very interesting things into your unit mod pack. Right now the issue with Etruscans its they are quite so powerfull, same with toning down their garrisons and unit caps, they succeed to blitzkrieg the whole paduan valley and Liguria. I will pm you Wilhelm.

    @Cesco, salve!

    Nice mod VINC! I've been testing your mod (playing as Rome) and have a few suggestions and notes:

    - Unit cards can be taken from DeI mod with permission.
    - Camillan units can also be used from DeI with permission (I liked those better).
    - Armies tend to rout easily. That only makes battles unpredictable and hard to keep the battle-formation.
    - Too huge garrison in cities. Cut it down in order to make the player expand their domain, without spending time to gather huge armies before assault.
    - If you decide not to cut the size of garrions armies, at least the cut down the support area for the garrison army to aid in battles.
    - Everyone seems to hate Rome at the begining. Please make diplomacy a bit easier so that Rome also can make a counter allianse against its foes.
    - Make Carthage playable just for fun and variety's sake.

    These are all constructive critics and I hope you take the into consideraton
    Again, great overhaul! Your team have done a good job and we're looking forward to more updates.

    @Jupiter, thanks for the feedback, I will see later about diplomatic things, its not like I would to reflect the situation in the 300's, I'm trying to make confederation/vassalization more realizable because its the way its was at this point.

    btw, did you looked at Victory Conditions of Romans? Now you have to get as much of territories( either by direct rule or by suzerainty) that there is on this map at 272 BC: Latium and Campania, Etruria, Umbria et Picenum, Samnium, Magna Graecia.
