Hun/Bulgar/Magyar/Cuman Archer

Author File Description
Khan Ivayl
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Screenshot:
This mounted archer was made for Lanors Mod to represent a Cuman Mercenary, but would fit with any project involving warriors from the steppes. The shaving of the head has been practiced by Huns, Bulgars, Magyars and Cumans. Mostly the shave was not complete, but the remaining hair was plaited into one or more braids.

Anyone is free to use, just replace the slps with such equal in frame-number, the plumed archer is a perfect match.

P.S.: The Update uses the horse from Dave337s Cataphract Archer

Usefulness/Novelty4.0

Usefulness/Novelty
Usefulness - The Cuman Mercenary is a moderately useful unit, especially in light of the conversion being developed that call for such a unit. This unit would also be a nice addition for anyone who wanted a different graphic for cavalry archer. It's not "THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD!!!" useful, but still is quite useful. - 4

Novelty - Novelty is fairly high, since it is a historically-based unit, which no one has made before. Howeve, it does suffer a little in this area because the unit itself is not a drastically different change, merely another kind of cavalry archer. It is still moderately novel. - 4

Quality/Instructions
Quality - The quality for this unit is a little lower than I would like. There are a few bugs that I noticed that I'll list here:
First, the dying and decaying animations have rider wearing a blue shirt, while the standing, walking, and attacking graphics have the rider wearing a dark shirt. You'll want to change them to match.
Second, most of the attacking directions "jump" a little after the conclusion of the attack.

The quality of the unit itself, bugs aside, is quite good. The shaved head is clearly visible and well done. The one thing I would suggest is that the Beta horse that is used is not the best choice. Compared to the ingame horses, it almost looks like a pony. Overall, Quality - 3

Instructions - There are no instructions included and there only are the slps, with an install script. Either instructions on how to add the slps or a MPS install script are needed. There are very brief instructions on the download page, but further instructions are needed for people unfamilier with replacing SLPs. - 2

Usefulness/Novelty - 4
Quality/Instructions - 2.5

Overall: 3.3

In summary: This is a good mod in progress, but it still needs some work. A few bugs need to be fixed and instructions or an install script need to be added. If these changes are made, I'd be glad to update my review.

Quality/Instructions: 4.5
Like in the usefulness category,The unit is keeping it`s high level in quality also.Like the author`s other files,This unit also very good in quality.Another thing to appreciate is the icon,Which is good like an official icon.The only reason I can`t give 5.o to this unit is,There is a little flaw when the unit is moving.
