    Congratulations and many thanks!!I have a question if you please; Is the slowed down combat speed making the game easier or is it just me thinking.I found that, even the best of the best units, like argyraspides or evocati cohort, are taking serious amount of time to rout the worst levies.Did the combat speed actually toned down or it just adjusted to battle overhaul? Keeping in mind that there is no way to make AI cleverer, means the human player has more time to react/counter any situations.
    What do you think guys ?

    - Still various parts like baggage trains being worked on, this is step one of the overhaul
    What kinda standard bearer animations are there? Just a guy holding a pole, or is the standard itself (if its a flag) animated? Also, what exactly will the baggage train be?

    I believe the standard bearers mainly defend and wave the standard rather than using it actively.

    I am not sure yet on the baggage train but the idea will be to make it more useful, rather than be a situational advantage during certain times (desert, etc)

    What I mean is, is the baggage train an actual unit, or a campaign map mechanic?

    It seems save compatible, maybe not all changes will be included but nothing gonna be broken right?

    changes look awesome.

    random bug report - takashila heavy swordsmen (1h+shield) have the same weapon dmg as the 2h falx units.

    Disregard issues, I figured it out. Seems despite deactivating a certain particle effects mod, it still jacked everything up.

    Removed it entirely because it was redundant. Time for the real test now!

    For my first piece of feedback, I had 3 units of Legionarii (2 regular, 1 veteran) use all their pila ammo on a single unit of Pontikoi Thorakitai, and didn't get a single kill.

    probably bad rng, but rest assured a bunch of them should be low health and will fare much worse in the ensuing melee.

    unless soemthing is specifically bugged with that unit

    I'm getting an alert not to trust the site from Malwarebytes. I haven't had this issue in the past. Would it be possible to add it as a google file download?

    Sure, I added a google download link. The mediafire one is the same one I have always used so its not a virus, not sure why it got flagged.
