Mounted Longbowman

This unit is an English longbowman that can ride a horse. He works like a trebuchet: to mount/dismount the horse, click the Pack icon in the control panel (or hit hotkey: P). While on foot, the longbowman attacks with his bow. On horseback, he fights with a sword. You can build him at the British castle, in the Imperial Age.

A few notes:

  • The longbowman is a hero unit, so he heals automatically, and he can't be converted.

  • You can garrison him in a transport ship or a siege ram, but not a building.

  • He gains +1 range (in both modes) when you research Seige Engineers.

  • Since he is based on the trebuchet, he will not auto-attack enemy units. You will need to right-click on enemies explicitly to make him attack.

    To use this mod, you must have the Conquerors expansion pack with the 1.0c patch. Installation instructions are in the readme file.

    This is quite cool, I like the way the unit speed increased when hes on the horse.

    Now I've just got to find a way to implement this into a scenario.
    Hawk_Wang I would also like to know how you make the Mounted Longbowman of dismount, it's image is changed, but did not use the MPS

    Thanks for your comments, guys.

    @Hawk_Wang - You can use the Advanced Genie Editor to change the graphics for a unit, or combine different graphics together. Here are some good articles by Jatayu that explain how to do it:

    The new Mounted Longbowman is a very nice utility . I especially liked the way how the horse follows you and you can mount every time you want without triggering .
    This saves from a lot of triggers , cloak units and renaming . It's very useable for RPG and cut-scenes . You're a nice data editor . Keep up with good job !

    I think it would be better if the longbowman turned into a Calvary Archer insted of a Scout.
    Fanica It wouldn't be so balanced as it's now .
    woodoo25 Doesn't work!
