These towers by Julo66 provide SLPs for Ballista Towers for each civilization. Ballista Towers are towers that shoot large ballista spears out of them, similar to the bolts that a scorpion would fire.

Usefulness/Novelty: 4.0
These towers a nice addition to the game and a novel touch. I’ve not heard of ballista towers before and I’ve certainly not seen the. In game before. They could create a unique style of gameplay if inserted into the game with the correct data editing. Having it as a tower with higher attack that are much better at taking out siege weapons, but that are faster and cheaper than bombard towers could really add a unique twist on the gameplay, especially in a tower defence game. I’m not sure if towers like this are historically accurate but they certainly can create a brand new and fun experience in the game.

Quality/Instructions: 3.5
The towers are essentially bombard towers with ballista spears sticking out of them instead of cannons. Not much work has actually been put into creating them, yet the outcome of the graphics is perfectly executed to create the intended design. You can clearly tell what they are intended for. A ballista tower has been created for each civilization set including the ones from the HD expansions. To male these really work in game as intended your going to need to do some data editing to add in the graphics and add a ballista projectile to the tower, as well as making it build able and changing its attack stats. Some of that can be quite advanced data editing and some instructions on how to do this for newer players would have really benefited in this download due to its unique nature.

Additional Comments:
Overall these towers are a novel addition to the game and can create a unique experience in certain game modes if added in correctly.

Well Done
