    Default Retinue Longbowmen Unit Model File Change

    Hello friends,

    The current model for this unit is the "peasant archer" in fully upgraded heavy mail wielding a shortbow and I would like to change it.

    1. using the original retinue longbowmen model from vanilla

    OR

    2. using the same unit model as the "yeoman archer" (which wields a longbow and has the arrow knock animation) // Is it possible to have the same unit model in game for 2 units???

    My problem is I have no idea how to do it

    I think I found the file location in Data - unit_models - units....

    but then there is 2 texture files and 4 mesh files....

    if anyone has experience with the unit files and this seems like a doable thing please let me know - and please let me know if this is a fools errand

    It's possible.
    First you need to find the model you want to modify in data / export_descr_units.txt
    Below you will find the name of the 3D model and for which factions it is used.
    Once you have the name of the model, you must find it in the file data / units_models / battle_models.modeldb ...
    Here, you will find all the info on the textures associated with the 3D model.


    This is a base. To find out more, you have to look in the workshop. The SSHIP thread is not made to fulfill this role.

    Hello , it seems only the unupgraded armor units have that skin.

    Once you upgrade their armor , they change back to longbow variant. ( bronze ,silver and gold armor uses the same skin so is ok)

    https://gyazo.com/9d4f16f29ff10fd559926de279203dbb

    Easy fix i got for you : edit the export_descr_unit , at the retinue longbowmen line , change at armour_ug_models the first entry : from dismounted_longbowmen to dismounted_longbowmen_ug1 like in the screenshot below:

    https://gyazo.com/94fa0d922693f44b5fde232e19dda1b9

    Now the units will use the upgraded model despite not having any armor upgrade
