Bithynia et Cappadocia

Hello, this is my revamped Bithynia et Cappadocia - mod, which i have reskinned because it was one of my first mods and i have now a higher claim to my mods as i have had in the past.

This unit mod adds 4 new units, 8 reskinned vanilla units, 2 new meleeships to Bithynia and 4 new units and 3 vanilla units to Cappadocia.

The 4 new units for Bithynia are:

-Bithynian Hoplites (medium hoplite unit, recruitable from Eastern Infantry Tents, Level 2)

-Bithynian Thorax Swordsmen (high sword unit, recruitable from Eastern Infantry Quarters, Level 3)

-Bithynian Royal Guard(elite hoplite unit, recruitable from Eastern Royal Barracks, Level 4)

-Bithynian Royal Bodyguard (elite melee cav, only general's unit)

The 8 vanilla units for Bithynia are:

-Thracian Horsemen (recruitable from Eastern Royal Stables, Level 3)
-Thracian Cavalry (recruitable from Eastern Light Horse Studs, Level 2)
-Thracian Royal Cavalry (recruitable from Eastern Nisean Stables, Level 4)
-Thracian Skirmishers (recruitable from Eastern Infantry Tents, Level 2)
-Thracian Peltasts (recruitable from Eastern Infantry Quarters, Level 3)
-Galatian Swords (recruitable from Eastern Infantry Tents, Level 2)
-Thureos Spears (recruitable from Eastern Infantry Quarters, Level 3)
-Thracian Warriors (recruitable from Eastern Infantry Tents, Level 2)

I added two new melee ships:

-Assault Hexeres - Bithynian Infantry (recruitable from Naval Yard, Level 3)

-Tower Hexeres - Bithynian Infantry (recruitable from Drydock, Level 4, also usable as Admiralship)

The naval roster missed some meleeships, but on the other side the Bithyni were not known as great naval nation, so i didn´t make their naval units to strong.


Noble Blood Cavalry

Further I decided to add 30 vanilla skins of hellenistic generals instead of the eastern generals.

I did this, because the Bithyni were from thracian origin (the thracian tribes of the Bithyni and Thyni migrated from Thracia to later Bithynia during the early Iron Age).

With time Bithynia became strongly hellenized, so in my opinion the hellenistic generals fit better than the eastern ones.

You must start a new campaign to see the changes.

The 3 vanilla units for Cappadocia are:

-Karian Axemen (they are neighbours to Cappadocia, recruitable from Eastern Infantry Tents, Level 2)

-Azat Knights

-Persian Hoplites

The 4 new units are:

-Cappadocian Swordsmen (medium sword unit, recruitable from Eastern Infantry Baracks, Level 3)
-Cappadocian Noble Cataphracts (high shock cavalry unit, recruitable from Eastern Nisean Stables, Level 4)
-Cappadocian Armoured Spearmen (high spear unit, recruitable from Eastern Infantry Barracks, Level 3)
-Cappadocian Galatian equipped Infantry (lowmedium sword unit, recruitable from Eastern Infantry Tents, Level 2)

The Cappadocian Galatian equipped Infantry is recruitable for the Seleucids too, as the seleucid King Antiochus III used 2000 of them "equipped in galatian style" at Magnesia ( Duncan, "Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars", p. 122).

The Stats are developed on Vanilla stats and should fit perfect to Vanilla.

This is a semihistorical, but historic plausible Mod, based on Vanillastyle.

I tried to make it historical to my knowledge as possible.

You will an All factions playable-Mod to use this units by yourself.

I recommend as complementary reskin mod for Bithynia, especially for the famous Bithynian Infantry:

CIU East:

Screenshots were made, while using Armoured Horses Mod, CIU East, CIU West from Avetis/CIU Team, CIU Iberian Tribes from Miri82, ACR - Alii Colores Romae: Totus from Demokritos, Better Horses, elephants and dogs HQ texture v2 from Noif1988 and NORMALMAP (decalmap) from CJiaBa. I recommend to use them for a better graphical experience.

I would thank:

- CA for the vanilla game and the assembly kit

- Sebidee for his great modding tutorial

- BoyaWho? for some of his unit icons

- Cataph for inspiration (history of Bithynia)

- Cataph & Stealth4Health heavy thracian/phrygian helmet (Scipio's helmet)

- Kraut and Tea for his great linothorax/cuirass/early chainmails, sheep pelts, thracian tunics and helmets/pelt caps/leather caps.

Upload of revamped Version 2.0 (various graphical improvements)

Sorry, no, i want a clear difference between them and other eastern factions. They are solely melee focussed.

Hey Marcus_Iunius_Brutus, could you maybe add horse archers for Cappadocia?
Marcus_Iunius_Brutus  [author] May 25, 2019 @ 11:49am 
Good, its really easy. ;)
Marchewa99 May 25, 2019 @ 9:50am 
No problem. That's a good idea to change barracks from level 3 to 2. I checked on the internet and changing unit stats isn't so difficult as I expected so I'll do it myself(for private use only :) ).
Marcus_Iunius_Brutus  [author] May 25, 2019 @ 9:42am 
Personally i like them, how they currently are, so i won't change that.

For me the only troubling thing was level 3 barracks, but this is solved for me now.

I'm sorry.

Nice. Or if it's possible you could make them also more expensive. But idk what's easier. I mean i like bithynian infantry cause it is unique vanilla unit ananin my opinion it deserves to be useful in lategame.
Marcus_Iunius_Brutus  [author] May 24, 2019 @ 3:36pm 
They are already 50 % cheaper than Eas Axemen but i will make them recruitable from greek and eastern level 2 military barracks.
Marchewa99 May 24, 2019 @ 1:44pm 
Hi, is it possible to improve Bithynian Infantry? They are from tier III barracks but they are very weak. Maybe stats similar to Axemen(from armenia)?
Marcus_Iunius_Brutus  [author] Feb 28, 2019 @ 10:55am 
Pontos and Pergamon yes. Bithynia and Cappadocia not. I found not one historical record about them. I will not add them.
