Yari & Teppō
the Pike & Shot Japanese Mod

by jomni

Current Version: 0.3 "Hachiman"

Commonly called the “God of War”, Hachiman is a Shinto kami and Buddhist deity worshipped by the Samurai. He is seen as the divine protector of Japan.

Features:
• New 3D models for units, buildings, and defenses;
• Modified random map generation script that represent terrain in East Asia;
• Custom rice paddy tile courtesy of Sarbatha;
• Modified combat scripts to enable new rules;
• Two generic fictional red and blue clans;
• Unit textures for prominent clans in central Japan with historical clan mon (crests) and semi-historical banner design;
• Hand-drawn unit portraits in the style of ukiyo-e woodblock prints;
• Custom squads file and army lists, based on Field of Glory Renaissance: Colonies and Conquest, to depict the various units during the Sengoku Jidai;
• Factions that consider the relationship between the different clans during the century.

Mod only supports Skirmish, Editor, and Multiplayer. No Historical Scenarios are available in this build.

The mod can be downloaded in-game and will be installed automatically.

The manual can be found here:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vc00002qu6wt ... NPF6a?dl=0
Please read the manual.

Works on the iPad with the following warnings: (1) it may lag a bit, (2) takes up quite a lot of space, (3) some graphical anomalies.

Just tried an iPad (Air) skirmish game against the AI. So far the mod seems to work pretty well.

I'm playing skirmish and MP on my iPad and everything looks and performs fine (well, except me as RBS can attest to!).

It is really, really good - thanks again Jomni!

How can this be downloaded on iPad?

I see no option in the app or the App Store.

I dont have the iPad version but you go to Historical. Then there's a globe icon to download scenarios from the net. The mod is listed there. This should also be the recommended method to dowload for PC version

I just played a skirmish battle and it ran very well.

I got well beaten, but that's another thing.

Updated:

by jomni

Japanese Wars
Sengoku Jidai (Skirmish only) v0.4

(SP & MP)

When you have finished any outstanding MP games, you are advised to delete v0.3 and download v0.4.

You can delete SP v0.3 in game in the Historical Menu.

Because it has no scenarios, there is no in-game way to delete the MP version. You will find it in

My Documents/My Games/PIKEANDSHOT/Multiplayer.

This means that deleting it from the iPad may not be possible except by deinstalling and reinstalling the game. If you do not want to do this, you can keep both versions on your machine - you can tell which is which because v0.3 is called "Sengoku Jidai" and v0.4 is called "Sengoku Jidai Skirmish".

The new version has the following changes:

1) Bows can shoot overhead.
2) Honjins will disperse rather than routing.

I must be really dense but I cannot seem to load any of the Sengoku Jidai games or campaigns. I have dowloaded successfully all other user created content but can't get this one to work. It shows up in Historical, I download it, but it doesn't do anything. Help please!

It does not have any pre-built scenarios, it is Skirmish only. You will find it if you go to skirmishes and change campaign to Sengoku Jidai.

Could you please download a group of historical Samurai battles for Pike & Shot since those of us (there are hundreds or thousands) that have Apple products can play the battles from the new Samurai game you only released only to PC. Get a group of battles together and sell them like you did tercios. You will make some more money By doing that definitely. That way the Apple fans are not left out who wish they could play your Samurai game but cannot and you do not have to release a whole new game for iPad like you said you did not want to do. Please make those available on Pike & Shot! Also, please continue to offer battles from the War of Spanish Succesion, and maybe the Austrian Succesion, French and Indian War and Seven Years War like you did with Plassy and Blenheim. I am a great fan. Love Pike & Shot. Please get us those Samurai battles from the PC game on Pike & Shot and make some money for the add on....win, win.... Thank you. Sincerely, Steven Johnson

Who knows? It really is only 28 Mb, so I don't know why it would take up so much space on your iPad. But then I have almost no idea at all about the internal working of iPads.

It is a while ago, but 28Mb is the compressed size. On iOS we need to unpack and convert any DDS textures so they are usable, and so this could explain the data size.

Cheers

Ok so I downloaded different scenarios by various different people, the problem is with the designer his mods for some reason are making the ipad memory think it's a bigger file, all the other scenarios I downloaded we the size it says it is.

I think it might be because it's a skirmish file maybe, can he possibly look at it to shave the size down ? 400mb is huge.

Ps. The mod is outstanding thank you.
