Falxman

Author File Description

File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Screenshot:
This turns the Japaneese unique unit into a Dacian/Thracian Falxman. The falx is a 2-handed bladed weapon that curves away from the user. It was used by the Dacians, Thracians, and Bastarnea. It may have doubled as a scythe durring harvest time, but was especially effective a splitting and ripping away opponents shields.

As you can see this is just a male villager I edited.

Will be used in my Romanian mod pack and super long campaign hopefully coming at some point.

UPDATED to fix anchors

The falxman modification looks cool, however the graphics (including dying graphics) are still very choppy when in combat. A little disappointing, but promising some nice potential.

Good luck on your campaign, I look forward to its release. :-)

I made this a year ago and don't recall but am willing to bet that the Samuria had a different number of attack frames than the male villager, which makes them a bit choppy when replacing one unit with graphics derived from another.

Also I usually don't do much with the rotting frames. I just never know how to make it match those from AoK.

Hmmm. I made this unit for a large mod pack I'm working on but submitted it separately (the big mod pack will take a while). But it sounds like I failed to import some of the anchors. I'll get this fixed and submit an update.
Sarn If/when you update it, I'll update my review accordingly. Hope to see it finished, I really like this unit.

It's updated.

I totally agree with the usefulness being minimal. It's a critcal unit for Romanian's early history of pre-Roman and Roman conquest, and I made it so I figured I share it.

It's a shame he doesn't stand out from the male villager (which he's made from) more, but shirtless and bearded is how they fought.
