Patches

  • Fixed an error that caused the mod to crash at start up

  • Fixed an error that prevented the new stats for specific units being updated.

Version: 1.0.3

Changes

  • Better unit speciality, strength and weaknesses
    Tweaked the spearmans damage slightly to make it more reasonable.

Version: 1.0.4

Changes

  • Enhanced Combat
    Deflection has been tweaked to only allow ground units to deflect. As lack of penetration vs armor causes constant deflection against cavalry.
    This will be looked in to, to allow all melee units to be able to deflect. For now, grounds units will be the primary source for deflection.

    (Currently hardest AI is the only one effectively being worked on. Once it’s ready and working,

    Deflection has been removed until further testing with penetration and armor to allow room for damage
    to properly calculate.
