Extra Support Units

Adds new, tier 3 mounted support units to each race's core lineup (the Frostlings get a new t3 cavalry unit instead). Each unit has at least 1 new, unique ability, a new icon and modified textures for a new look.

Direct downloads can be found in the OP of this thread: Official Forums Link[]

The units can be built with cities that have the Chamber Of Mysteries upgrade, which is unlocked by the Temple.

In order to try and balance the units between classes, the following changes have also been made:

- The Archdruid's Long Strider skill has been modified so it only gives 4 move points to mounted units (it still gives 8 to unmounted ones)
- The Rogue has a new skill called Ghost Riders, which grants all mounted units Forest and Swamp concealment
- The Dreadnaught has a new skill called Armor Of Faith, which grants all support units Armored (including the +2 defense bonus) if they do not already have it. It also grants all support units +1 resistance.

This Mod currently has English and German text, if you'd like to provide a translation into French, Russian or Polish, then please let me know.

Special thanks to Maximo for the German translation!

Unfortunately I have to agree with some of the comments below. Super creative mod but I just had to unsubscribe from it because the balance still needs some fixes. The halfling support can spam a ranged aoe fire bomb attack 3X in a turn for example, plus it has very lucky (a trait I had tried to get rid of using another mod because it's so annoying). The Frostling support unit's ability to ignite is so powerful it generally becomes the core of the army rather than the support. I love all the ideas and played many games with this mod but I eventually found the units were too strong to work in my campaign.

I really loved the idea of this mod. Supports are quite frequently the slowest units in your army, and investing a little bit to make them faster sounds like a great idea.

Unfortunately, over half the supports in this mod are extremely busted. While I've uninstalled the mod, I can remember that the human has a better version of webbing touch (which is already essentially a save or die), the dwarf has an aoe battle length damage buff, and the draconian can transform into a dragon. I'd rate each of them as at least tier 3 1/2 and probably some of them as true tier 4s

I played one game with this mode.
That's cool new units, but i would not advise players to use this mod : It's just mounted support everywhere versus IA.
Support units have too much tools, and they have as much survivability or even more than tier 2 units, too cheap for their powerfull.
And of course, they have better ranged damages than most units of the game.

A poll will be launched to elect and rank the 20 best mods of AoW3 as of 2017. In order to shortlist the 20 mods, I opened a discussion here: Please share your favourite mods there. Please also comment on the mods already listed so that we can see which are the favourites to be in the shortlist.
Extra Support Units is obviously already in the list! :)

@SLAYAH: a lot of people care, and a lot of people still play AoW3. There have been 2 new races published recently, and there is a community expansion in the work. It's far from dead, sorry to disappoint you.

SLAYAH, it ain't dead, it just smells funny.
X-the Unknown Jun 18, 2017 @ 11:06pm 
who cares? AOW3 is a dead game now as well as it's mods. People are waiting for new things not dead games.
