    Default Rhun Clansmen Visual Armor Upgrade



    A while back, Disgruntled Goat stated that he had originally planned to make the Rhun Clansmen upgrade to use the Clan Crossbowmen armor. He never got around to doing it, so I did it myself. This applies only to the Clan Crossbowmen and not to the Clan Archers. It isn't compatible with sub-mods that alter the file battle_models.modeldb, but it can be very easily made to do so, and I included a text file in the WinRAR archive that explains both the installation of the mod and how to merge with other mods. Enjoy - Yarrum

    Edit: I received a private message asking how to merge this with another sub-mod which alters the battle_models.modeldb file, so I figured I'd post the instructions from the download here in case anyone misses them.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    This is extremely simple to merge with any other submod. Extract the file rhun_eastclan_upg_lod0.mesh to the folder mods/third_age/data/unit_models/units/rhun. Then. open up battle_models.modeldb and find the entry:

    Save the file and you're done.

    Also, feel free to add this to your sub-mods. Just remember to credit me when you include it.

    Are there any plans to create more visual upgrades? Visual upgrades are cool!

    I'd love to see more visual upgrades as well, for example, Dale Swordsmen could get chainmail.

    Not specifically new armor upgrades but I'm thinking of an idea that may greatly help to diversify the Clansmen, Clan Warriors and Clan Crossbowmen. It would take a bit of modeling work on my part but it could turn out pretty well.
