This patch is built to make the game more balanced and authentic. The idea is to make all units use-worthy and all civs potentially equal. The units are not drastically edited; a veteran player would not have a problem getting used to the changes.
*win vista \ 7 script fix
*Many very slight adjustments to game units.
*Huntable wolves for gold.
*The pavilion - a quick to build, easy to destroy building. Used to garrison and heal units. Useful in combat zones. Available in Feudal Age.
*Mountable Champion\Dis-mountable Paladin. available in the editor. Mainly for campaign purposes.
*Palisade Gate! your palisade wall will have a purpose!!
*Hound - this unit is available to all civs from the start at the Town Center - this dog will hunt down boars and deer for your villagers to gather meet.
Changes so far:
-Walkable Trees!!! - The forest will no longer be a wall for your (enemies') troops
-Blacksmith upgrades for Scorpion attack & range

This mod basically adds some new features to the game & tries to balance some Under-powered units. Some of the problems in AoK was that towers were pretty useless (except Bombard Towers). They did little damage before being destroyed by enemy rams & infantry. Now with upgrades, they can become a serious threat & there are situations where you would prefer towers over castle or bombard towers. Additionally wolves/jaguars are now huntable for gold. This means that they are not just a mere annoyance now as you can get some gold from them now.
I'll mention some balance issues with this mod which can be fixed easily. :-
1) Town Watch research costs the same while it has additional benefits. A slight increase in cost would balance it.
2) Sometimes when you're hunting, wolves come & attack you. When you kill them with your villagers, you loose all food the villagers were carrying.
3)Scorpions are OP. They have too much range compared to their counter Mangonels & have very high hitpoints.
4)Again War Wagon's range is OP. Change their range to normal.
5) Monastery available in Feudal Age is nice but Monks become OP because there is no counter to them in Feudal & can convert units very easily.
6) Pavilion's cost is a bit high. Changing their cost to 30 wood, 30 gold would be better since they garrison only a small number of units.
Overall I would say that this mod is great & I have great expectations. keep up the good work Carmelious. :-)
