IlluminatiRex's "Officers of" Mod Series

Description
The vanilla game lacks officers within the various units at your disposal. I am starting to correct this with the Empire, whom logically you would expect to see officers standing at the front of their men, leading the charge. The officer is functional and will engage in combat alongside his unit. The officers are the same size and strength as other members of the unit. All Empire Units except Warmachines and Heroes have officers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SCREENSHOTS ARE OUTDATED AND FROM THE FIRST VERSION OF THE MOD, THE OFFICERS ARE NOW THE SAME SIZE AS THE REST OF THE MEMBERS OF THE UNIT

---------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Works with all the other mods in the series, found in the collection above.

ALL IN ONE VERSION NOW AVAILABLE. Link found within the collection!

-F.A.Q.-
Q) Is this compatible with X mod?
A) If the mod edits the stats of vanilla Empire units, it will not be compatible as the same lines of the same tables are being edited. There would need to be a compatibility patch.

Q) Do you plan on making an X mod compatible version?
A) Probably not, no.

Q) But X mod is really popular, how come?
One of the major reasons I am not currently looking to make a compatible version is that I don't think the mod is at a complete enough stage to incorporate into others - there's still a lot of work I have to do and I would not want to have other mod creators who have incorporated it into theirs to have to continuously keep up with my updates.

Essentially, my mod would have to be slotted into theirs, and right now I don't think my mod is at a stage where it's ready for such a thing. In addition, I can not do it on my own as I can not distribute their mod for them without permission.

Q) Do you plan on adding Standard Bearers or Musicians to this mod?
A) That is my ultimate overarching goal with this mod (and the rest in the series to follow), but this requires specalized importer tools for animations, models, and sounds (since the items needed would not be found in the vanilla files) and I'm not sure if CA is going to provide those tools for this game in particular. However, it is something I wish to do.

Q) Can you tie their appearance to the technology?
A) Not entirely sure, but I can look into it. I do not think it would be part of the main release however.

Q) How lore friendly is this mod?
A) I'll try to keep it fairly lore friendly, but I do want to have officers that are visually pleasing as well. I'll try to find a nice balance.

Today I got the Bretonians updated, with basic officers at least. I'll work on customizing them in the future. I'm working on the Empire right now, I got custom Artillery officers working. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have the Empire done (might start work on the dwarves depending on how I'm feeling about it all). I will not be doing any DLC units or factions at the moment, as I will not be able to make sure they work. The DLC is expensive and I'm buying reenacting stuff, which is also expensive. I'll have to see what prices are during the Summer sale. So at current, only base game units and factions (plus Chaos) will recieve officers. Beastmen, Wood Elves, and DLC units will not have officers at current. That is subject to change in the future.

After about a year off from this game (and really the Total War series in general) I've decided to work on this mod again. The modding itch has bit me again. No ETA at all for an update, but I'll be working on stuff this week. Cheers everyone.

kelstr he made one (or someone did) which combined all the Officers For mods. But this hasn´t been working for me for ages. Are you saying it works fine right now?
