DESCRIPTION

This mod started as an expansion to the fabulous Ethnic Artstyles mod v1.09
(now Cultural Citystyles v0.99) and the brilliant Ethnically Diverse Units Mod
(please see the readmes in Modules/Ethnic Artstyles/readme), and grew up
considerably in size and content.

The aim of the mod is to create as ethnically diverse unit sets as possible,
to the extent that in all cases not only the cultural/racial groups were the
bases of these unit sets, but a single civilization.
As with projects of this scope, it's far from being perfect, and some/all
decisions of unit use can be(are?) questionable. The author however tried to
use the best possible options where available.

A great effort has been made to make this mod as optimized as possible. The author
has spent several (not so much fun) hours to optimize all the units used in this mod.
All this is done in hope to produce a mod that not only does look great, but perform
great, too.


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

- Important: first update your BtS to 3.19

- run the installer (now Modern Era Expansion is included, is selected by default at install)

UNINSTALLATION

THANKS

The author used the units found on www.civfanatics.com,
so all credit due goes to the creators of these brilliant units -
including danrell, Chugginator, Bakuel, bernie14, asioasioasio, Rabbit, White,
sepamu92, Zerver, GarretSidzaka, C.Roland, AlazkanAssassin, Ploeperpengel,
seZereth, Cham, GeneralMatt, Polycrates, The_Coyote, Refar, snafusmith, the Blue Marble Team
and forgive me if left out someone(as I have, I'm sure), but pretty much all
of the civfanatics unit db was used, so thanks to all the unit makers!

Special mention:
- Gedemon - valuable error-findings!
- Polycrates for his insights and units
- mamba for BtS 3.13 patch info
- Amuroray for his buttons fix
- RPG, President of the Varietas Delectat Fanclub
- The Coyote - the correction wizard
- achilleszero - great optimizations
- riddleofsteel, AbsintheRed - beta testers

SOME ADDITIONAL RAMBLINGS

Spoiler:
There are a couple of things I'm not really satisfied with in the mod. Firstly, some unit choices are questionable, especially in cases when the unit does not accurately represent the era it should be in, or when essentially the same unit is used multiple times with different weapons - I tried to minimalize the impact of both. Secondly, I like the fact that different UnitArtStyleTypeInfos are possible for different civs, but it does not permit the change of the unit name - unless I made it unique, which I didn't want to do - hence some weird instances when a falxman is an axeman, a heavy footman is a spartan, and even worse. I tried to compensate by renaming a couple of unit classes (maceman - heavy footman, horse archer - horseman, cuirassier - heavy horseman), but this is still not the best solution and still lacking.



CHANGELOG

v9.2

- added Bakuel's brilliant Ottoman units
- added Bakuel's Celtic chariot
- added Bernie's Me262, Vbl Dingo, Pzkpfwivausfg
- changed Barbarian Knight to Khazar Heavy Cavalry

You might remember I called the previous version a "Performance edition".Not much later I realized that even thou the mechanical
units and the most offending figure units are optimized, there is still a lot I could do to optimize the figure units further.
So I continued with removing the not needed meshes, optimizing texture usage, etc. I cut 25 more Mb, but more important is the
fact that in several cases a unit now uses half the triangle count and half the texture size than previously.

Take a look at the extent of optimizations I've done below and you'll understand why I'm calling this one the "Cheetah edition"

Yes.

PS: this is totally and utterly unimportant, but anyway: it's avain which is 'key' in Finnish, by which name I wanted to register in the first place (alas, in vain)

Could have been worse. The forum might have forced you to register as 'vane'.

BTW, if it has a meaning in slang, do share it with this poor clueless Hungarian

Nice job, I think some of the units could use a bit more polish but this certainly takes EDU up a notch both in Ethnic Diversity and Tech depth. I'm getting a copy now and I'm hoping you made it modular.

No slang meaning, I just striked me how the spoken sound of the word is similar to 'vain'. (at least how I read it in English)

Yep, it's as modular as I could make it be. Ethnic Artstyles uses a couple of XMLs that are not compatible with modular format though.

What is the difference between this and just using: EthnicArtstyles1.01? (expanded unit graphics?) And, are you using EthnicArtstyles1.01?

Updated to version 1.01 (added a citybuilding for the medieval Indians), and the main download is now in module format.
Thanks.

Avain added more civ-specific ethnic units. The EDU-mod (and Ethnic Artstyles too thus) has ethnic units for the artstyles, not single civs.

Thanks.
It's based on EthnicArtstyles 1.01. (I corrected the initial post)

I have what's probably a stupid question, but how do I install this? I'm kind of new to this, but I tried putting it in my mods folder, and it doesn't seem to be working, all the units still look the same.

Help would be appreciated, this looks awesome, it's exactly the kind of thing I've been looking for.

Hi,
yes, you should put it in the Mod folder, and then after the game starts, choose ADVANCED, then LOAD A MOD and choose keymod.
