What's in this mod?Edit

The following unit changes are expected:

  • Different names for units
  • Units sometimes have 2 different skins, reflecting changes in the era.
  • Some units are removed while others are reintrouduced as shared units.


Hawk and Eagle are to be replaced by the Impala and the Cheetah

  • Neitos are available to both Germans, British and French

  • A new skin for German light tanks is to be introduced, with the Strv m/21 and Panzers I-II representing the new Light Tank in the Industrial and Modern Ages.

  • Two new skins for Elite Light Cavalry are projected, with the Elite Light Cavalry in the Enlightenment Age using the old Cuirassier uniform.
  • Golden Horde is to be made available to both Persians and Mongols
  • The Culverin Mahout is scrapped for Persians.

Will there be new units?Edit

Considering that we do have 5 unit slots available, I haven't decided really on what could possibly replace them yet.


  • Baleares - replaces Slingers for Spain, a very powerful light infantry unit.
  • Armatoloi - a unique infantry unit for Greece, lasts from the Gunpowder to Enlightenment Age for Greece.
  • Ghazis - available to Persians, Egyptians and Turks.
  • Yamato-class battleship for Japan, other factions have to use smaller battleship models.
  • Airship - possibly a no-oil air unit, but this is uncertain.
