New spearmen v1.1

Author File Description

File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Screenshot:
Changes the spearman to a pikeman unit holding a spear and a round team colored shield.

Adds a knights kite-shaped shield to the pikeman and replaces his pike with a spear (the original pikemans pike is technically ahistorical given the other castle age untits attire).

Turns the Eagle Warrior into a barbarian spearman, which is simply a spearman with a husklars shield.

Nothing is password protected so use as you like.

Will be featured in upcoming Romanian campaign.

UPDATED: Corpses now have shields

This modpack replaces the Spearman, Pikeman, and Eagle Warrior with modified spearmen/pikemen. Overall, the units are well made and give a little new flavor to the normal spearman line.

Usefulness/Novelty - 5
Usefulness - 5
These units are potentially very useful if a designer wants to use some sort of guard, sentry, or simply a spearman, but wants something different.
Novelty - 5+
This is the first spearman mod I have seen and I love it. The addition of the shields makes them into entirely new units, which I feel are very unique and something other people haven't done before.

Quality/Instructions - 4
Quality - 4
For the most part, these units are good. The only problem I found was that when the units were killed, their corpses didn't have the shields they carried when alive. This is the case for all three units. If the units are carrying the shields, they need to decay with the corpses. Also, there are no new icons for the units.
Instructions - 4
No instructions are included, but as most people know how to use a modpack, it's almost unneeded. I say almost because some people don't know how to use modpacks, and leave comments asking "How do I use a modpack?!?!" in the comments section in the Blacksmith and in the forums.

Usefulness/Novelty - 5
Quality/Instructions - 4

Overall - 4.5

In Summary - A good modpack, it adds some new flavor into the always-the-same spearman line.
