    Default My Aethiopia and Nubia - Unitmod

    Hi,

    this is my last unitmod. A mod, which gives Meroe, the Blemmyes and Axum their own unique, historical based roster.

    I. Meroe

    MeroŽ was the south capital of the Napata/Meroitic Kingdom, that spanned the period c. 800 BCE Ė c. 350 CE.
    The culture of MeroŽ developed from the Twenty-fifth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt, which originated in the Kingdom of Kush. The city of MeroŽ was located along the middle Nile which is of much importance due to the annual flooding of the Nile river valley and the connection to many major river systems such as the Niger which aided with the production and trade of pottery, textiles, jewelry and iron ("Birmingham of Africa"). The Kingdom of Meroe also traded with the Ptolemaic Kingdom and later after a short war, which secured the status quo, with Rome.

    II. Blemmyes

    The Blemmyes (Latin Blemmyae) were a nomadic tribal kingdom that existed from at least 600 BC to 300 AD in Nubia. In the second and third century AD they raided and occupied the roman province of Lower Egypt (Thebais) several times, till Diocletian moved the province borders north to Philae and paid an annual tribute to them. The Dromedar played an important role in their rise to power in Nubia. The Blemmyes are the ancestors of the modern Beja/Bedscha.

    III. Kingdom of Da'amat (Axum)

    The Kingdom of Da'amat was a kingdom located in Eritrea and northern Ethiopia that existed during 1000 - 300 BC. Because of few surviving inscriptions and very little archaeological work it is not known whether Daʿamat ended as a civilization before Aksum's early stages, evolved into the Aksumite state, or was one of the smaller states united in the Aksumite kingdom possibly around the beginning of the 1st century. Personally i believe it evolved into the Aksumite Kingdom as Axum had the same technological and cultural traditions. Da'amat had very close cultural and trade connections to South Arabia. Their kings called themself Ąmukarrib of Daíamot and Saba".

    Screenshots were made, while using Armoured Horses Mod, CIU East, CIU West from Avetis, which included ACR - Alii Colores Romae: Africanum from Demokritos, DECALMAP from cjiaba_ , Better Horses, elephants and dogs HQ texture v2 from Noif1988 and finally Aztec's Environments and Lightings. I recommend to use them for a better graphical experience.

    The Stats are developed on Vanilla stats and should fit perfect to Vanilla.

    This is a semihistorical, but historic plausible mod, based on Vanillastyle.

    I tried to make it historical to my knowledge as possible.

    You have to use an All factions playable-Mod to use this units in custom battle and campaign.

    I would thank:

    -CA for the vanilla game and the assembly kit
    -Sebidee for his great modding tutorial. Take a look on his great mods:
    http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/7.../?appid=214950
    -BoyaWho? for some of his unit icons
    -Avetis for his great armour
    -Kraut and Tea for his great armours, helmets and tunics
    -Ahiga/LoB-Team for wicker/animalhide shields
    -Dontfearme22 for armour, helmets, shields
    -Europa Barbarorum II and scottfree001 "Black Sands" for inspiration

    - finally: LinusLinothorax for historical advice.

    Thank you.

    Yeah Pikes are a hypothetical unit, i know. I only put them in, as Meroe had close trade connections to Ptolemaic Kingdom. They could have introduced them.

    Looks better now. You could make some guys naked tho, especially low tier units like slingers.

    I think, i will add a naked variant to Tribal slingers and Tribal javelins.

    Thank you for your help, Linus.
