Hi Devs and Community,
First and foremost, thank you for bringing back one of my favorite games and the strategy game that started it all for me. I absolutely the approach you have taken with the remastered edition, it is quite simply breathtaking.
Having said that, I’ve always had one issue with the original Rise of Rome expansion and that was to do with the roman legionary representation. It was simply represented as the generic long swordsman unit with stat tweaks. The Legionary should have a very distinctive look with the iconic roman tower shield (scutum) instead of the generic round shield. The tower shield played a significant role in roman legionary tactics, the testudo formations or scutum charges were very common and effective and defined the era of the roman infantry dominance on the battlefield.
The forgotten expansion pack has done a great job modifying the generic Long Swordsman by incorporating the roman tower shield and making it accurate.

I am sure there is more important work ahead but this one really sticks out to me like an eye sore.
