    Fantastic idea, i did wished damage against infantry increased and damage against buildings decreased but damage against cavalry i'd rather have it unchanged since it's hard enough for me to kill cav units already. Could you please make a third version with these standards?

    Thanks, much appreciated, but there's some sort of problem i can't dowload any of your mods. I get a weird message:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    EDIT: Hey thanks for the fix Ishan. Just to let you know guys (Luntik & Ishan), the third version in the OP repeats itself with the second, you might want to re-fix it. I will give it a try to this mod and will have some feedback once i do. Btw i wanted to ask before but forgot, forts are included within the buildings category?

    Download links fixed, don't hotlink the token directly from the download button, they expire after a few minutes and then other users can't download it. Anyways i have updated the OP with valid links.

    Great idea for a mod Luntik. Can I ask what files and tables you have modded? I'd love to make a similar version that is Darthmod compatible.

    Is there a version of only canister shot damage increased ? Also, it would be great if someone redid it in order that the damage increases only at close range. Cause a cannon ball at 100-150 m killing 10 people or more is unrealistic .

    I think the balance for computer games is more important than realism.
    Increased damage for canister shot to lead to imbalance.
    The video shows that one cannon ball kills less than 10 people.

    I read somewhere a commander of an army at that time was happy if he had 1-2 cannons as backup. 3-4 was a strong army. And what we see in game is usually 5 cannon units x 4 cannons each...20 artillery pieces per army. I understand they look cool but.. By increasing the damage of the round shot the situation gets even worse. While at the same time firing grape shot - you see the balls pass almost always over the heads of soldiers 2-3 meters- at the same time some of them dieing of mysterious causes...Plus the ammount of small balls of the canister shot depicted by game fired right at a unit must have a devastating effect, but you see an average of 3 soldiers dead per shot.

    With Mod manager you load both. To overwrite similar files in competing mods the one you want to use must be upper in the table. Some units are not scripted for custom just for campaign battles. Some mods do not require a new gamesave. A mod that adds new units, techs etc does.

    If you use Mod manager it changes it itself.
