With the recent update, a lot of units already got new skins and I loved it, so whether for taste or historical accuracy, which units need new skins? For example, I would like the Spanish and Dutch skirmishers to be updated (like the uniforms of the Napoleonic era), the truth is that I never really liked the design of the generic industrial skirmisher, and I would also like them to add new skins for the ships.
IMO Jaguar and Eagle knights, as they mostly wore colored Tlahuiztli suits similar to the puma spearman, but with different patterns on them instead of covering themselves in hides as they are depicted in game, same with coyote runners and their strange “fur suit”, as it looks in game
Actually, just to be a pain in the butt - Aztec commoners who found themselves in the noble Warrior societies such as Jaguar and Eagle warriors (working their way up with captives) often had pelt suits. The most noble families in these societies wouldn’t however as they could afford a proper suit made.
This is generally accepted as being a misconception by historians. Jaguar pelts were not only expensive and considered royal gifts, but more in depth sources say that the jaguar ‘pelts’ were made of dyed bird feathers.
Both are true actually. Just like SirBanzy1 said, some couldn’t afford an expensive suit. Therefore, they sometimes wore real jaguar pelts. But most of times, their costumes were made of dyed feathers, like you said.
Take a look at the skull knight. Even though he doesn’t make sense as a berserker type unit, his appearance is very accurate to reality. This is a very good example of how jaguar and eagle warrior could look like with a “fake” wooden helmet.
I think the artillery dudes need uniforms to better reflect their civ. Especially now that certain artillery units like in Malta have the dudes in flamboyant dresses that compared to the falconet dude looking dull, makes for an awkward aesthetic. Also the Order Hussar, and dragoon could use a new more knightly appearance given their quirks.
They should rather probably change the name. It does not make much sense to have french legions for a civ that is much more known for their resistance against french invasion. Caçadores earn their medals by fighting against french divisions.
I think many villagers got new models-textures and many other should get new. Also Japanses and Chinese as currently both are the same, some type of difference would be nice.
Also have to say that Aztec villager could use an update too, and their ranged attack/hunt attack to be changed to blowgun, since many cultures around there used it to hunt. Now they use Atlatl (javelin thrower from Eagle Knights) that was only used by nobility.
Jaguar head is weird as of right now, while Eagle in general is horrible.
They might have had BUT the real armor was the cotton and wooden helmets, if they wore something over it as add due wealth or status thats another thing but as they said is poorly represented.
Not really its like wearing a helmet, not a big voodo mask
Besides the need of an update, gotta comment that while I like the unit visual is not acurate at all, the Skull unit has the suit/appearence of a general “Tlacochcalcatl” the “real” unit are “Shorn ones” Cuachicqueh, plural. Cuachic, singular).
Yes I know that. What I meant is that the visual appearance isn’t made up, like some people think. I’ve already suggested the shorn one as a replacement for the skull knight. As for its actual skin, it should be an option for the warchief.
