This is a utility I now use primary, every time I use AoK TC. Its a totally new unit, with AoK beta graphics, who's also called Knight, who's added to the units list and the Stable
The good thing with this unit is firstly its coolness. Its simply cool and and strong, though very weak against the spearman-line. This balances it somehow, so it wont be too strong. Personally I use this unit for my ADOC campaign, as the bassian Unique Unit.
The bad, or lesser good parts with this is, in front of all, that it doesn't have an attack sound. If you send in an army of these knights, you only hear the opponents attack sound. It works somehow in mixed forces, but with only these knights, it seems weird.
Another thing that made it drop from heigher rating, was the unrealistic armor and attack. Against cavalry, it was almost unbeatable. 3 of these knights can finish a paladin in 2 beats each, making the attack against paladins about 27, when the attack sais 12. Also its total weakness against spearmen. 2 halberdiers finishes a beta knight in seconds.
Summary, A good and cool unit.
Thanks for making it! Without it, my ADOC campaign, and propably others campaigns too, wouldn't be the same :-)
Well done Joab!

This fantastic mod adds "Beta Knight" to the game as a createble unit, its invincible against cavalry and infantry (apart from spearman etc), It looks really cool. although there are a few incy bugs.
-icon and death motion is the normal knight's one
-No sound when it attacks.
-Doesn't appear in the combat mini map as a cavalry unit.
-if you fully upgrade attack its attack with be 12+3 not 12+4.
But remember this is a beta nit so it will have bugs with it.
A MUST DOWNLOAD!

The BETA Knight is a whole new unit added to the units list. It works for all civs and can be created at the stable. I think the best bit is that it doesn't replace anything! The bad thing is that it doesn't have any attack sounds but this is not enough to bring the rating down to a 4.5
