    This mod features in:
    -two new renaisaance era military technologies

    -Add Two-handed Swordsman as an early renaisaance era melee unit, upgraded from Longswordsman and upgrade to Rifleman(Line Infantry with EE)
    -Remove Lancer, add Tercio, which is the main and most powerful combat unit of renaisaance era, upgrade from Pikeman and upgrade to Rifleman(Line Infantry with EE).
    -Spain now got Rodeleros UU as replacement of Tercio
    -Musketman is now a range unit, which upgrades from Crossbowman and upgrade to Gatlingun(Skirmisher with EE)

    Beta Version released at 2016/1/15

    -All 3d arts are already done
    -All 2d arts are done, but still need improve
    -The coding is almost done


    -Compatible with all JFD's gameplay mods, and have special support for JFD's Mercenary
    -Compatible Pouakai's Enlightenment Era
    -Not compatible with overhaul mods
    -To new civilizations mods, RER should be able to run with them. However, as RER change the style of Musketman, Landsknecht and Lancer(though it is removed, technically, Reiter is the UNIT_LANCER), if any UU in new civilizations replace those units, may cause some balance issues. And authors may find that some UU would be more historical-properly if they replace new units in RER. It is impossible for me to solve those problems, the only way to solve them is new civilizations mods' author add support to RER.

    what is needed now

    -a quote text for the technology Pike and Shot

    -sometimes I think the unit name 'Reiter' is too German and 'Tercio' is too Spanish, any better name for them?
