    Default Divide and Conquer v.0.51 mini submod: "marka" barded horses for the Gondor bodyguard unit

    The DAC Submod for the Gondor bodyguard "marka" barded horse




    This submod is very straightforward and similar to my MOS submod that adds beautiful barded horses for Gondor cavalry units. This submod only changes a few files in order to change the mount type of one unit, the "Gondor Bodyguard" unit (i.e. your generals' cavalry unit, minus Boromir and Faramir). At the moment, DAC only has the "Gondor horse" mount model for Gondor bodyguards, the same mount type that's shared with the "Gondor Cavalry" unit. It looks okay, but come on, this looks better!

    None of the textures are of my own creation. The new mounts come from the marka barded horse project submod. They basically allow any other mod to use their models and textures so long as the following members are credited for their original work: the Rusichi Team, Paradamed, KingKong, and AnthoniusII. Cheers to them for their brilliant works of art!

    Download instructions:

    1) Just in case something goes wrong, back up the following DAC files first if you haven't done so on your hard drive or external drive: "export descr unit" and "descr mount" in the main "data" folder, and the "battle models" file in the "unit models" folder.

    2) Whew! Now that that's done, you have two different download options to consider; you only need to choose one or the other, you don't need both. If you are a registered member of TWC forum, you can simply download it here from TWC! Just click the "download" button and then follow the rest of the instructions below. Alternatively, if you are not a member of TWC forum, you can also download it from my Google Drive account. I might make a ModDB link in addition to these, if anyone runs into problems. If so, let me know!

    3) Once the new "data.rar" WinRAR window pops up, select the "extract to" option from the list of tabs above. Direct your download DIRECTLY TO THE THIRD AGE TOTAL WAR FOLDER (or whatever name you've given to your mod folder containing your Divide and Conquer submod), do NOT place it directly in the main Medieval II folder, the mods folder, or the data folder within DAC, etc.

    4) After selecting the Third Age Total War folder for extracting these files, a message should pop up asking if you want to replace some files. Just say yes to all! If you did not receive this message then you've done something wrong (i.e. directed your download to a folder other than your Third Age Total War folder, or whatever folder you've named for DAC).

    5) Boot up the game and enjoy!

    No problem, guys! Just tell me if everything worked out okay. Theoretically there should be no problems, since I tested it on my own computer.

    Phew! That's a relief. Just out of curiosity, did you use the Google Drive download option? I've never used that before as a download option (or, at least, only had it as one of four in the previous submod I made). It would be good to confirm that it is just as reliable as TWC, MEGA, or ModDB.

    It is reliable, I host many other TATW submods on it, plus, all of my work.

    You can also use DropBox, 2+ GB of free space. Only difference is, they have a daily download limit for your FREE account, I think around 10 GB per day, but that`s nothing.
    American, French, Israeli and British government's ILLEGAL aggression against the Syrian people, without any proof for chemical attacks in Douma, and without waiting for OPCW to conduct their investigation..
    Sons of *******, leave that poor, war torn country in peace.
    If you are a citizen of one of these countries, then DO NOT ask any help from me on these forums, since, in protest against this aggression by your governments, I do not provide assistance/help anymore.
    Let Syria be finally in peace.

    This is nice hope the modders add it in the official submod release.

    Thanks! I agree, that would be cool. But if not, it's no biggie, I can definitely put out a second submod to accomodate the official DAC 1.0 release when it comes.

    Sure! Whenever the full v.1.0 is finally released, I'll definitely consider it.

    I play MOS now and then, but I haven't played DAC in a long time. Does the new version have any of my mounts in it? If not I might consider re-releasing this as a new sub mod.

    Most but a few bodyguards in new DAC are dismounted units

    Gondor bodyguards are now dismounted, but Gondor Cavalry are now post-BE only and they use the barded horse above.
