      currently, only one faction can have the advanced weaponry at one time.
    • - re-balance stat on units just switched from sword to ax or halberd
    • - add new hi-res animation units to replace vanilla units
    • - eliminate the parasole cover for the western Celt battle wagon.

    changes in 7.0C
    • Massive optimization on animation speed, and space saving
    • New Amazon Peltast units animation
    • New Amazon Heavy Peltast units animation
    • New Amazon arbalest cavalry and Infantry animations and new weapons
    • New Amazon attires to match Amazons to the same "primitive" level of other "barbarian" cultures
    • changing "skirt"s to be more of a waist-wrap
    • changing loin-cloth from front only to front and back, same as Thracian peltasts and woad warriors.

    As of February 25th, 2013 - 7.0C beta, the 3rd release is out.

    7.0C enhances the realism even farther, with major new animation revamp. New specification states that swords are much more costly to manufacture than many close quarter combat weapons. For light and low-cost units, therefore, if swords are their secondary weapons, they must be replaced with something more representative of their cost-performance relationship (according the Balance Unit Modeling , aka the B.U.M. principles)

    • New animations for Amazon Dispatcher Corp, now using short halberd instead of sword

    • New animations for rebel Amazon archer units.
    • New EDU stat for new units to reflect the changes.
    • New Amazonia, Libya, and Thyssa general's units
    • New Amazonia strat map captain animation.
    • New Geothe strat map captain animation, to correct a weird problem with default texture file, uncovered by Katsoro.

    • New light standard bearer, now with druidress or Camilla priestess.
    • New Amazon priestess and colour guard animation
    • New Amazon Militia Hoplite animation, instead of spear and sword , now with lengthened pike (18ft).

    If only I had the kind of animating & modelling skills you guys have on some of the mods I do.  :P

    Looks great, the optimisation sounds particularly good as even my fairly fast laptop was chewing through the memory a lot.

    Looks sweet, I'll give it a go tomorrow! :)
    I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.
