IIRC 'Swifter Than Eagles' was recently seen in a screenshot of a likely suspect ( :) ) so Biblical may be next. I'd prefer Mediaeval but such is life.
IIRC there was also Reconquista stuff to be seen.

Iberian light Caetrati could also be worth a look for swordsmen capability + some protection (Falcata + Caetra).

...are there other lights ... which might deserve some upgrading? Just curious.
Only ones that I can think of at the moment are Euzonoi (skirmishing Thureophoroi with javelin instead of spear).
But iirc they are only in TTmod. Or got they patched in the base game lately?

Re: Comparing historical and in-game lancer/light spear cavalry

I find lancer cavalry to be not so suited for an offensive role. Unless your opponent has put some raw and/or medium non-spearmen foot in the open, a frontal charge is not a great idea. ...The impression I get was that the first cavalry with lancer classification in game (Companions, or Xystophoroi...

Re: Need some book advices

...what about the Osprey series books? Nothing wrong about them. But they are always specialized on a single narrow topic. You would have to invest some nice sum, just to have all about some broad subject like Rome, Greek, Carthage etc. I suggest to buy the DVD with Slingshot back issues from 1965-...

Those appear to be modded textures. The vanilla units don't have any red shields in the blue shield unit.

Maybe a problem with the modded texture?
Could be possible. I darkly remember some additional shield pattern mod, that came out in the early days.

...I'd like to see is forests concealing units a bit better so you wouldn't have to have the units two squares deep in the forest and away from corners to keep them hidden from half the battlefield away.

Re: Suggestion:add the plain(Mediterranean,North European,Middle East) for the map types.

It would indeed be nice, if the random map generator could take the date into account when calculating the percentages between open and wooded terrain. At least for Northern Europe. The fields on the agricultural maps now look much too large for ancient times. Almost like LPG fields. :D -> https://e...

Re: Suggestion:add the plain(Mediterranean,North European,Middle East) for the map types.

The Lechfeld (Feld=Field) is a sandur south of Augsburg formed during the last glacial epoch. So, it's indeed a (small) natural "plain". I would classify it as heathland, so agricultural field tiles are "correct" for this: -> http://www.countrysideinfo.co.uk/whatis.htm In the end it comes down to th...
