Additional Comments: my favorite MOD!
i tried Napoleonic, and i didn't like it at all. i prefer Update Pack waaay more!
joelkad The Train thing happened to me, too. Ai's armies get run over when crossing the trade routes. I have lost some Spahi too :p

anyways, i just want to say, this is the mod i always wanted. good job. and for me, it is the best mod i could find around there.

i'll write any problem or new ideas for future :D

kangasrok123: There will be a couple new units in version 4. Not sure how many though.

Joelkad: Thanks for the review!

As for preventing the AI from getting run over by the train, so far I have not found a way to do this. That is probably why ES didn't make the train do damage in the first place.

Additional Comments:

Why i want to review this modpack is because this totally give new strategy/gameplay as now i can use banks for coin so i can use less unit for mining. Air ballon allow me to keep my enemy under the radar....etc. Awesome! :D
Blue_AceZ Would you be able to give out the date for the coming Mod 4?...because i believe we(the people) would really love if you could include *infinite pop" in your next mod. i mean the cap on pop really quite limit the gameplay :/

anyway, i appreciate what you have done for us :D
diech7 dragoons are black since update pack 2 it dosent really bug me but i dunno

best mod anyways :DD

Blue_AceZ: Thanks for the review! I am not sure when version 4 will be out, I am not finished it yet, and it depends on how much stuff I want to add to version 4.

diech7: I checked the Dragoons, and they were fine. It could just be a curropted file on your computer. Anyways, its just one unit, so its not that big of a deal.

Great mod, hope u make more
kangasrok123 u might want to fix the bit where some civs dont build walls and maybe put the decay rate for a long, long time...

joelkad diech7, are you sure they weren't black riders?
i see dragoons right too

about the decay rate, it's fine at normal game speed. but at fast speed bodies do disappear too fast.

what i'd love in version 4.0, is some ottoman hat in great bombards drivers. And i saw a mod that brings back unused unit's upgrades textures. for example, janissaries have 4 textures instead of three, and same with hussars, lanceros, and some other units. maybe you could do that too for version 4.0 :D
