So are you saying I should do away with this UU then?
From his description and from what Ive read on them, you probably should. The model you made could be used as a Moro warrior. It would just need maybe a little bit more tribal and malay look. Maybe some bamboo armor or shield to go with the gun ( I know it sounds crazy). That would be a pretty cool UU for the philipines.
Katipunero are partisans/guerrilla fighters, even though the word means Society or Association, as they formed from community groups; against both the Spanish and Americans, Katipunero were Riflemen with bonuses like Drill I, City Protection I or First Strike, against the Japanese in WWII, the Katipunan would replace Marines with Woodsmen I&II and an Extra First strike these are especially well suited as UU since at least 7 Filipino resistance flags had the K for Katipunero
So now I should keep the Katipunero as the UU?
Guys is this mod updated now?
can you create another leader that's Spiritualistic like Cory Aquino coz i believed that she is always influenced by cardinal sin lol.
anyway when was this mod last updated
i really think the UU should be either the vinta or balangay because as a WHOLE, the archipelago was a sea going civilization. katipuneros can really only represent the revolutionaries in the northern islands.
While that is true, I find that people usual prefer to have ground units as the UUs rather than naval units, as they are a bit more effective. But hey, it isn't my mod. I would like to make one suggestion though; I'm not sure if this mod uses a flavored set but I think Bakuel's ancient Vietnamese units could work pretty well as ancient Filipino units, I also think he mentioned that he made them relatively generic to that culture/region anyway so it should work out pretty well.
Well, the balangay might be a good idea, with the replica just launched from Pasay on June 28 to retrace ancient migration - it could make an ancient Caravel, it wasn't used to carry military troops.
The vinta is a fishing boat found traditionally only in southern islands, particularly Mindanao. They look very nice - and Kao'chi did a great job, particularly on the sail, but it it just a one man out-rigger fishing boat found only in the south, so I don't really think it is a good choice for a UU, though I would like to see Filipino Fishing Boats reskinned as vintas.
Katipunero may be a Tagalog word, but once learned, it was used by Spanish, American and Japanese to describe guerrillas - not to mention it appeared on several national flags. More game relevant, the katipunero were very effective guerrillas, where as despite being a large and widespread archipelago, the PI has never won a major naval battle against a foreign power (as opposed to inter-island tribal warfare).
wow.. very good job.. I cant wait for the updates.. specially the next UU for the Philippine civilization.. but I really do preffer having Katipunero as our UU since it really made a big difference during war times..
CHEERS to that and to those who made this possible!
How about Edsa People Power Scenarios?
Just a suggestion for UU, these were nifty swords used by Phillipine Tribal Chieftanshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kampilan
hi any Spanish American War Scenario now?
So if the UU is overpowered I go to python to tweak it? Maybe take up the recommendation that the Vinta should be able to traverse sea tiles as well...but the Katipunero is good too
