Carthaginians by maximusminimus V.1.0

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: Rome: Total War 1.2
This is a complete replacement pack for the Carthaginian faction.
It took me many hours of hard work - skinning, coding, reading and searching for information,
to make these units as realistic and accurate as possible.

By installing this package, besides getting new skins for all the Carthaginian units,
you'll also get some new units for Carthage as well:

- Numidian archers
- Iberian Scutari
- Poeni cavalry
- New mounted Standard Bearer for the Sacred Cavalry


Several units stats ajusted to be more realistic.
The Iberian Infantry throws javelins before charge now.
Round Shield changed to javelin throwing cavalry, for historical accuracy.

I've also included skins for some of the mercenary units and horses as a bonus;)
Total: 45 new skins!

This is not a self extract installation package, please refer to the README_Installation.txt file for instructions.
I know this will be a lot more work to install, but this way it will be compatible with other mods and skin packs
(as long as they don't change the Carthaginian faction).


I want to thank the Punic: Total War Team, particularly Gaius Julius and Asterix who gave me invaluable input and
information in the process of creating these textures, as well as those who somehow helped, giving ideas and suggestions.

Many thanks to spartan_warrior for allowing me to use his awesome models.

Thanks to TWC and all the community for sharing knowledge and resources.

RTWAddict This mod is completely useless! I followed the instructions to the letter and I had to uninstall/reinstall my game because of this mod. After applying mod it would load to splash screen and then drop back to the desktop. Thanks for wasting an hour of my life buddy!
jrcanary This mod does not work, don't download it!! All that happens is when you start the game, the splash screen loads and then the game returns to the desktop.. I reinstalled the mod 2 times, and I know I follwed the instructions to the letter.
Maximusminus, this promises to be a good mod,,, just get it to work!!!

Tulius Hostilius The mod works fine! The skins are excellent. I mean they are the best Carthaginian skins around!

I only used pieces of this mod, primarily because I had already modded the Numidian archers and Spanish Scutarii to be playable by Carthage, I just didn't have unit cards for them. The parts I used worked extremely well.

Additional Comments:
I reduced the specs of the Scared Band Cavalry and the Poeni Cavalry, I think that they are too powerful. Historically Carthage did have very powerful horsemen, but I think these are slightly over the top. Instructions were very easy to follow, anyone has some minor modding experience will be able to easily implement all or part of this pack. Excellent work on the unit cards, they were a great find for me. Keep up the good work.
