    For the next version, IA won't consume ammunitions,
    so we won't be able to capture military units, but in MP you will be able to do it on your friends :mischief:.
    Later, in the following version, i will try that IA can resupply its units.
    So, we will able to intercept the enemy resupply.

    I didn't understand everything :p but, I believe that you liked the concept!
    I hope I will finish the next version before the winter holidays, because it's really a very big version.

    I present you Dawn of a New Era v1.34.
    Changes were mentioned in the spoiler below.
    Sorry the translate of my changelog was made by google Translate.
    I have to admit that I was lazy :D
    Ps: you can dowload it here too if you have some pb.
    Spoiler :
    DAWN OF A NEW ERA VERSION 1.34 English :
    :)
    Autors : M07 (Concept & mod)
    Dazio (Concept & graphics)
    thanks to Robert Surcouf, Invock (Main Menu), Aymerick, Deliverator.
    :)
    1. Changes

    To begin the colonization
    You have a ship with 3 units on board
    . a convoy builder
    . a pioneer
    · an arquebusier
    This soldier has muskets and 100 ammunitions .

    Successive versions of DoaNE had weakened the military capabilities of nations IA. Corrections were made to increase the number of military units and make the nations managed by the AI more aggressive during a war.





    A / Conceptual Change:


    Integration phase which will straddle two eras.
    For version v1.34, two phases are present, through diplomacy with King:
    Phase 1: The reign of privateers,
    Phase 2: The end of the reign of privateers.


    The statesmen will have three distinct roles:
    · Labor Organization (up to 50%): Statesmen have a primary mission to organize the work in the colonies. More you have a good organization, more your level of production increases. This is totally independent of the rate independence.
    · Development rate of Independence: As before, the statesmen generate development rate of Independence, yet every colonist individually grow and maintain its level even if it is moved to another colony. In addition, units outside the settlements would penalize the most
    independence rate (Troops military, explorers, pioneers).
    · Development of the influence of territory (no change).


    Arming of military units on land and sea.
    All military units must be equipped to fight.

    The soldiers and dragons should bring muskets and ammunition.
    Artillery units and ships of war should bring muskets and ammunition.
    These munitions were consumed during each fight.
    You will absolutely provide convoys during your military campaigns land to supply the artillery units such as soldiers and dragons. Ships will return to a colony to recharge its reserves.
    Ships:

    The warships will require more than muskets for their manufacture. They are built by the work of carpenters and input tools.
    However, warships are mere empty shells devoid of a military potential. To acquire this potential fight, you will be armed with cannons
    and ammunition in addition to the crew previously required.

    Warships bought in Europe are however fully equipped for battle.


    Sale of vessels:

    You can now sell the vessels are no longer of interest to you. They can be sold either in Europe or in one of your coastal settlements.

    The sale price is 50% of the purchase price for merchant ships.
    The selling price of warships is also 50% but is based on its equipment in guns.




    Travel Europe / New World:

    You can choose the direction of destination leaving from Europe.
    In the New Continent:
    You must first define a "Seaway", in placing you with a ship in a plot "ocean" of your choice and clicking on the "Sextant"
    located in the bottom of the screen. You can remove this "Seaway" by going on the same plot and clicking on the "Sextant" with red cross.
    The boxes "Seaways" are symbolized by circles with black boxes "ocean" and are only visible by you or your team.
    You can have 10 "Seaways" different and change at will in Europe across.

    In Europe:
    When you go to Europe for the new continent, you can always choose to start from where you came from, or click on the "Sextant" and start
    a window where you can find these Seaways to target a course through pre Seaways.

    You can name these Seaways as you see fit.


    Prices and access to goods:

    Access muskets: The muskets are now available from the beginning of the game but the price is very high.





    B / Additions units:

    - Naval Escort:
    Vessels "Naval Escort, the equivalent force of privateers to fight against possible attacks throughout the latter part of
    Thurs
    You can change the use of these vessels by requesting a letter of marque to conduct operations filibustering. An icon "flag exchange"
    (represented by a black veil) command to change this status. The same icon, represented by a beige veil, makes a return to the status of "Escort
    Naval.
    Armaments Naval Escort: 20 cannons/200 ammunition


    - Experienced ArtilleryMan: This unit can be an artillery unit with the same bonus unit "Experienced Soldier". ArtilleryMan Experienced
    must be equipped with 40 cannons and ammunition to be functional and takes the form of an artillery unit.



    C / Additions to Professional:

    - ArtilleryMan: The ArtilleryMan is equipped with cannons. There are two artillery units in the game
    Artillery unit artilleryman with experienced (Blue Uniform)
    Artillery unit with basic colon (brown uniform)



    D / Modifications units:

    Measures concerning reloading ammunition are active only from the level "Conquitador. Before this level, the ammunition is not available in Europe and
    your military units (soldiers, artillery and ships) are functional without their use.


    Ships of War (Naval Escort / Frigate / Ship of the line):
    These vessels are now empty shells in their construction in your dry-dock and shipyard.
    When one of these vessels will be built, you will need to equip cannons and ammunition to enable him to fight.

    Armament required for Naval Escort / Capri: 20 cannons/200 ammunition. 20 ammunition consumed per volley.
    Frigate armament required for 50 cannons/500 ammunition. 50 ammunition consumed per volley.
    Armament required for Ship of the line: 80 cannons/1000 ammunition. 80 ammunition consumed per volley.

    Warships consume ammunitionn in attack and defense.
    Each cannon board consumes 1 unit of ammunition for combat.


    privateer:
    You can have privateer if you transform a naval escort with the "flag exchange" icon (represented by a black veil). This
    operation will take place in one of your colonies and immobilize your ship for the turn.
    Patch: Privateers can no longer contact the opposing powers and Indian nor be responsible for a declaration of war.
    Privateers can not go in the colonies or in opposing the Indian villages for repair.


    Artillery:
    Armament required Artillery: 40 canons/200 ammunition. 40 ammunition consumed per volley.

    Soldiers:
    Armament required for soldier 50mousquets/100 ammunition. 10 ammunition consumed per volley.

    - You can now arming soldiers swords (tools) all through the game without any constraint.

    The soldiers are now the following names:
    1st generation: Swordman
    2nd generation: Arquebusier,
    3rd generation: Musketman,


    In the case of lack of ammunitions, your unit will lose its offensive and defensive potential in terms of what he will.

    Ammunition is an important resource to ensure the potential of a military unit. You must ensure that they never run out on pain of seeing your
    unit reduce or lose its defensive and offensive potential.

    For example:
    A soldier who still 5 ammunition (usually 10 ammunition for a round) has a potential cut in half, or 16 / 2 = 8 real power plus the
    percentage of promotions.


    Marauder:

    The Marauder has 2 modes now.

    · Stealth:
    Allows movement without having to fight: In stealth mode, the Marauder can move safely to engage in combat unwanted. Must
    however, always careful not to get caught by an explorer or a seasoned scout and marauding enemy on enemy territory.
    Allows espionage: The marauders are automatically in stealth mode when they enter a colony opponent you can, by double-clicking
    on it, view the buildings, products, goods stored.
    This ability is active even in wartime.

    · Hostile:
    The activation mode Hostile up your Marauder in clean, aggressive position to capture the pioneers, treasures, famous generals and sabotage
    adverse improvements.
    In all cases, the Marauders can no longer trigger war by crossing into enemy territory.


    Patch: Marauders can not contact the opposing powers and Indian nor be responsible for a declaration of war.



    E / Additions to buildings:

    Tavern:
    The tavern can be built in a coastal colony. Subject to bring rum, it can attract criminals in the colony where it is
    present.
    These units are perfect for train crews of ships or enlist as soldiers or artillerymen.

    Rapid recruitment depends rum allocated per turn and the number of tavern you have.



    F / Modifications to Buildings:

    DLed your mod and am about halfway through a game on Emperor level (or whatever the name is in Col).

    Very fun to play, quite challenging! I like the Great General mechanic and the ammunition resupply, also the Era of Privateers. Giving promotions to Sailors instead of the ships is cool, too!

    Very nice mod!

    I see there hasn't been much activity in this thread lately - are any more changes in the works? Or is this the final version?

    Juste pour te corriger un peu en français:
    Bonjour! Je pose cette question en Français parce que je n'ai jamais pu vraiment pratiquer. Est-ce que il est possible de voir graphiquement une seule unité, dans votre mod ?
    As KJ Janson may has said in Croatian, you can change "iRequired" value in each unit but I didn't create this function.
    I already began to program, I think the following version will be ready in some month but it will be a great version.

    Thank you, I am glad to see this mod being developed. Although a 6 minute wait to get a changelog is a bit sad :D.

    Your "ENG-Changelog v1.35.pdf" has a lot of typos. Plus some text is not translated to english so I can't read it.

    If you want, I can point at the most obvious errors.

    Translate to english was never my strong point. So if you could help me to correct mistakes I have done, I will be able to progress ;)!
    This is the sentence I forgot to translate:
    " Pioneer : It may cut ressources (tobacco, etc. ..) what permits to sow an other ressources"
    I will do an other changelog (if you help me :D), without all mistakes :mischief:.

    I show you some screen shot about my Europe screens here.
    It is only for management of ships :p.
    There are three others screens for Europe, I had already to think about comercial screen, but you can give me some ideas for the others two screens.
    - A screen for recruitment of units(not ships and crew), you can say me what you would like to see in this screen, even new concepts.
    - A screen for see which ships must go in new world, which ships come in Europe, and that permit to choose the well seaway... There are many ideas that you can add:mischief:.

    Now I show you Comercial screens in Europe, the novelty is that we can have a warehouse in Europe, so even if we haven't our ships in Europe we can buy or sell ressources in our warehouse.
    Moreover, I change the economic system in Europe, indeed now it is the law of supply and demand, because they are a limited stock in Europe as you see in the screenshots.(for exemple, there are no stock of tobacco in Europe)
    This screen isn't complete, I will change the prices of ressources and their quantity in europe too.
