The Throwing axeman on NE2?! Are you kidding? This was a unit from the Dark Age, and has nothing to do with NE timeline. Also regarding AoE2 UUs, well most of them are re-used by AoE3 rather than NE. The Longbowman, Conquistador, Organ Gun, Janissary, Jaguar Knight, Cho Ku No, Samurai are from the original game, TWC and TAD. NE only added the Condottiere which in this mod is a cavarly unit rather than the infantry of AoE2, the Teutonic Knight which will be discarded on NE 2.2 and the Mongol Mangudai which also will be re-worked to fit the new Tartar States (as natives) north and east of the Black Sea and in the Ural mountains.
Also I don't like your other ideas regarding ski archers for Sweden or to make the Janissary as a hand cannoner. Regarding da Vinci there is a HC Card on the italian home city covering the famous inventors of renaissance Italy. As for Napoleon becoming a military unit like Shogun Tokugawa this is not going to happen. Japanese Daymos and Shogun might get re-worked. Also the Europeans might get a general unit on Age IV or V, in the future but it won't be Napoleon, Wellington or Blucher. Just a general/commander.

why not able make them in respective building but with tiny build limit?
like 5 spahi max / 5urimi max+1 mansabar urimi able/ 6 dog soldier/skull knight/10 oppri/...

another sugest:

why not able fishing records for danish?or other water civ like miny factory of food (like 2.5 generating second)and with tiny build limit

The British consulate maybe, however I am against the Napoleon idea for the simple fact that the Shogun/Daimyo should be unique to the Japanese. Its something that was made for them and I do not like the idea of bringing it to European factions. The French are OP as it is in the game, they don't need a mobile barracks you can hide in the back of the enemy base. As for Spahi, they are an extremely powerful unit, the thing about them is that you can only get a few of them and you get them slowly from the homecity, if you can train them quickly from a building then it defeats the purpose.

However, for the British consulate...what kind of units would you suggest? Indians for one, however what other units? To have a consulate, you need two or preferably more to choose from...Canada at this time was kind of just there, its not like they sent military units to Britain, and neither did India. They had enough men in Britain.

I like the idea of Napoleon. Not in the same way as Shogun's, but it would be nice playing with him as a hero with some particularity.


Nice to meet you all, i'm new here. Just like to congrats NE Team for the awesome work in this mod. I'm having pretty nice times with my friends playing it Wink

Welcome to the community!

Again, I just don't think there was the First Indian Battalion of Foot running around at Waterloo.

I'd like it if mercenaries were trained from the consulate instead of the saloon. Also, each civilisation would have to have the ability to construct a consulate.

PostPosted: Thu Jan 21, 2016 8:27 am    Post subject: Ideas For Portugese Faction

Well Im Portuguese Myself Soo I Would Like to see The Crusaders,D.Afonso Henriques(the first king of portugal),also clero and nobreza units

I Know This May Be Silly But I Would Like To Have The 1 King And Strongest Of Portugal Has a Playable Hero and have that units.

Now a Silly idea:
What If Portugal Gets a Skill Named Treaty of Tordesillas
which lets us become allies of someone on the game?
this is probably all very silly ideas but oh well
its my opinion

PostPosted: Thu Jan 21, 2016 4:45 pm    Post subject: Portugese ideas

Well I agree that we should ave the elites of Portugal at the country's disposal. We should also consider adding the paladin as a archaic cavalry unit and changing the crossbowman to the arbalest. The paladin would have veteren upgrades only unless the french get royal guard status paladins. The cav would have insane hitpoints and a moderate attack by the imperial age if not royal would be useful but comparable to hussars in attack and closer to them in hit points and armor. I also thought a bombard cannon from aoe2 could be made that only has veteran upgrades but can be used in the colonial age. I also recommend a discovery age unit that all Europeans get that has a very bad attack that has a bonus against villagers, and buildings. I think the Spanish need a new infantry unit that is more modern what ever that might be.

Unfortunatly, Australia specifically does not fit the NE timeline. Besides, they would either be Redcoat Musketeers (from the British civ anyway...) or "Convicts", a unique villager/slave type unit with bonuses to treasure guardians or whatever... (Probably has a 50% chance on training to convert to a treasure guardian? Ned Kelly-type outlaw? lol )

What do you like about this unit? I think it's one of the most useless ones (plus: you waste a shipment). Only thing worthwile is the peacetime imho.

I like the idea of units having specific "powers" in the game, like the diplomat for the peaceful capacity (the "worthwile thing" with diplomats is this indeed peacetime capacity, nothing more...) or the sharpshooters as well. I find the concept interesting, and think it has potential for more Wink
