    I remember I had found the folder when I was playing darthmod and modded some things in the historical battles (more exp for units). They don't necessarily need to have scripts.

    Will the ionikoi/dorikoi hoplitai have a linothorax or no armour at all? Are those hoplites meant to represent a citizen militia or levies or city state allies with lower quality oplites?

    They will not have body armour, only a helmet and their shield. Their suppose to represent almost like levies or militias, if you can call it as such in this timeperiod.

    Ok, so will there be any hoplites on the Greek mainland with a linothorax or does everyone get bronze armour?

    I'm making my third and last revision to the unit stats. If an additional space appears for a unit, do you guys wish to see a Achaemenid Chariot unit?
    It wouldn't be the general bodyguard unit tough. That is still for the cavalry unit from previous versions.

    I feel they would be a good addition only if they are historically accurate and fit the timeline. I don't know much about Persian army reforms, but I don't think the persians used chariots as early as 559BC. I might be wrong. If they existed, then the chariots would be a great addition, however if the chariot is something from 330BC with Alexander, I feel maybe it isn't a good addition.

    In wikipedia, scythed chariots are used by the Persians after the Greco-Persian wars. Some say it was a response to the hoplite infantry. However, there was an absence of chariots in the Greco-Persian wars. Therefore I do not think a chariot unit should be added as the Persian army was still in its early stages (no chariots, no elephants etc).

    The Achaemenid Chariots of this time period are like other nation chariots, without the blades on the sides. At this time they were more of a cerimonial piece, so that's why i'm asking for the fans opinion on this one.

    Ok, if they were used on the battlefield, I think they would be a good addition to the roster.

    Please, PLEASE, put the unit names in English, at least in brackets like Europa Barbarorum does it

    That's great to hear! Any hint on when can we expect the campaign to come around, or is that too much to ask?
