No, they don't. That would require 3d modding skills that I don't have. I can make some visual changes to the units by modifying the alpha channel, such as removing shields or other equipment, but changing the size and shape of shields is impossible for me.

Even if I had the skills and equipment to do the job, no one has access to the modifiable unit models.


Cheers

I apologize if this has been mentioned before, but one thing I've always found odd about the TT mod is that the mod-added Indian Swordsmen are functionally a weaker version of the Indian Javelin-men that cost the same. From what I can tell, both are average protected swordsmen, but the javelin-men have a light spear, and both cost 36. How much is a light spear worth?

Foot Light Spear is actually costed at 0, so the points cost for the Indian Swordsmen is correct.

Some of Indian armies in the table top army list books include Swordsmen/Bladesmen, as well as Javelinmen. Obviously the Indian vanilla FOG2 army lists simplify this by including both of them in the Indian Javelinman unit. I decided to represent them both individually, but I take your point, it is a bit odd to have them costed the same, even though that is how they work out using the points cost chart.

I will have a think about this, and come up with a solution. Obviously, I do not want to delay release of the TT Mod 1.5.3 for such a rare unit, so it will have to wait until the next update. I notice from the army list books that in some armies the Bladesmen are rated as Unprotected. So that might be a possible solution, as that would decrease their points cost to 30. Alternatively, maybe I should just delete them all together and increase the numbers of Indian Javelinmen units?

Personally I am in favor of the latter solution. Thank you for the quick response!

I have deleted the links to the 1.3.9 version of the TT Mod in the first post. This version of the mod will not work with the latest version of Field of Glory II (1.5.3). The links to the new TT Mod 1.5.3 will be posted in a new thread later today or tomorrow.


cheers
