    Default An Imladris Submod for DaC

    This is a submod of Divide and Conquer v0.51 focused on Imladris.

    1) Imladris unit stats/upkeep redone according to my interpretation of the lore/descriptions of the noldor/other quendi (units are generally a) less in number and b) significantly more expensive but c) have a satisfactory amount of power for their price)
    2) Several units have their upgrade appearance changed in accordance to what type of armour they upgraded into although its worth noting as I am no artist it isn't my art used, rather default dac/third age (i.e. light mail/plate)
    3) Completely overhauled (and improved in my opinion) the Battle AI which should mean less/no crashes after a heroic victory
    4) Glorifindel/Elrond portraits are changed along with Elladan/Elohirs
    5) Elladan/Elohirs bodyguard units are now noldorian swordsmen, Glorifindel/Elrond bodyguard units are unchanged
    6) Minor spelling correction to the Glorfindel event and rhudar unit description
    7) Elohir/Elladan/Elrond now use a 2h sword animation, to help prevent the silly staggering animation that applies to them until they eventually die

    Download from dropbox or depositfiles

    To install simply extract the file directly into your DaC data folder.
    If you're doing it right, you'll be asked to overwrite files, say yes and you will be ready to play.

    Using 7-zip to open it and I get errors, 'unsupported compression method'. WinRar also gets errors.

    I'm using an older version of 7zip so that would probably be why.
    Here's a zipped version instead, let me know if it doesn't work.

    An updated version is now available for download, I've done a few small changes here and there after a playthrough.
    Beware, in this version it will be somewhat harder for anyone to sustain a large army.

    An alternative EDU is included with more forgiving costs, though it is missing a few other updates to size/speed.

    That's what it is.

    Is there a chance to get the Elrond Glorfindel images out of this submod without to install it?

    Just theirs or Elladan/Elohirs too?

    Could the OP elaborate on the specific changes?
