If you wish to use firearms, you can get them for free via the Rivacehg chest (How to: go to Rivacheg, Select take a walk around the streets; enter the front gate, take the next left, follow the path till it goes no further, look to your right for a hay stack, inside the hay stack there is a chest, open it. voila)

save game compatibility, i haven't tested this yet but it should work, if you rename the BLACK_SKY folder to Native, then overwrite your native folder with it, create a backup of your native, or alternatively download native from here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/374710510/Native.zip

as i said haven't tested that but it should work




"Why is it always Swadia?"
well its just what i did first, don't realy have a plan for the other factions yet (give me ideas!) also it does affect all factions with the ranged weapons changes, nord warriors have some real killing power on their charges as soon as they get in throwing axe ranged they take heads - and yeah the 12 shot repeater crossbow is also applied to rhodok sharpshooters, bow/throwing damage & ammo capacity is buffed up a bit aswell so vaegeris/sarranids/khergits also got some love.





but seriously its not finished 1/6 factions done (and mercs to do aswell) - first problem I've noticed Swadian infantry got the wrong shields

Peasants, peasants, Peasants! - Light/farmer armor, Wielding hay forks or whatever you call them, and only hay forks (all of them).

Dividing the Nord melee fighters.
Nord Swordsman - Medium/Heavy armor, Wielding a shield (not huscarls) and a Nord sword, possibly some throwing weapon.
Sami Axeman - Heavy armor, round shield on back (not huscarls), and a Two-Handed Axe (Medieval II Total War anyone? :smile:
Nord Mounted Huscarl - Heavy armor, Huscarl shield, One-handed axe, Spear, and of course a pony.
Nord Huscarl - Heavy armor, Huscarl shield, one-handed axe, Throwing weapon, no pony.

As far as Nord archers and such go, I'm satisfied.

Very interesting, but those Warrior monks have katanas?  How'd you figure that? Shouldn't they be more "realistically" armed? Y'know, with swords and morningstars and ****?

The new units are great, can you add some new units for the Vaegirs?
-yeah i can but, ive no idea what to make, i'm really happy with the monks tbh i love making an army on standard tanky infantry that i use for a frontal assault, then flanking with the monks, the monk archers seem to strong tho


- cheers for the nord suggestions i like them, bar the mounted huscarl - thinking of making nord scout, hunter, medium armour, spear, no sheild, and a 2h axe on the back for dismounted fighting
- also huscarls shall i make them use thrown axes only?
- as to the mercenary tree guess peasants which gradually upgrade into something more hardcore will do, still got unused samurai Armour! &



"Very interesting, but those Warrior monks have katanas?  How'd you figure that? Shouldn't they be more "realistically" armed? Y'know, with swords and morningstars and ****?"

my swadian history is a bit rusty  :grin: i just liked the way that they upgrad, basic monk has 1 sword, fighting monks got 2, warrior is packing 3, just as well as the similar but increasing armour, considering i can't custom models yet + i've already kitted the sergeants with morning stars, wanted monks to have differnt uses having swords and maxes just makes em feel too much like standard infantry

Yeah, but warrior monks in medieval europe were the Religious Chivalric Orders. They should be the knights.

I picture in my mind:
The monks pilgrimaged to the far east where they tried to spread (religion of your choice), in the far east however they were met with resistance, unarmed as they were they thought the need to arm themselves. They managed to convert a Far eastern Warlord who taught the monks in the way of that Super awesome weapon. Thus the Warrior monks and Co. were made.

You should turn those Monks into recruitable Mercs at taverns, they could start out as just Monks and be upgraded the same way they are now.

And they should keep the strange weapons.

They could be called "Foreign Monks" or something like that.
