ahowl11's Vanilla Enhancement Mod v6
 Sons of Zalmoxis

 
Yet another faction that has not received a ton of love in the RTW modding community (aside from realistic overhauls). Dacia is a very interesting and diverse faction. Historically, they were located in modern day Romania, and were known as the Getae to the Greeks. A large debate has existed between scholars on whether the Dacians were actually part of the Thracian culture. Since RTW features both Dacia and Thrace I  thought I'd simply expand on that feature instead of merging them into  one faction like other mods.

The Dacians are more barbaric than Thracians so they keep the Barbarian culture, but we did majorly overhaul the look of their units.  Here are the features:
 - Complete overhaul of Dacian Roster
 - New Barbarian City models on the map, made by Lanjane
 - New Bastarnae Mercenary unit model and texture
 - Macedonian Cavalry units have normal unit sizes instead of unusually large sizes
 The thing that bugged me about vanilla Dacia is that they were basically the Gauls in brown with a falxmen unit, and it was pretty boring. Now they have a full fledged roster full of unique units. Even the common units don't look like Gallic copies. See for yourself!

 Download and Installation:
 
 Download v6 HERE
 
 
 One thing that I need to be clear on, is this mod runs on the Alexander.exe not the regular Rome Total War exe. Please make sure you use an Alexander Install.
 
 If you have the last version of the mod, simply extract into the same location and overwrite your files. Make sure to delete the map.rwm file in HRTW/data/world/maps/base folder.
 If this is your first crack at my mod then follow these instructions:
 To Install, simply extract HRTW into your Rome Total War Directory,  or if you use steam, your Rome Total War Alexander Directory. when  making a shortcut, use the Alexander.exe or in steam go to Launch  options and include this: -show_err -mod:HRTW
 
 
 
 
 Credits:
 - Lanjane for unit work, ui cards and new settlements, as well as fixing some sprites
 - Kirilakristi for expert advice and analysis on Dacia
 - crazyroman for testing
 - Diadochi Total War for the Veteran Swordsmen, and Veteran Spearmen models as well as a texture
 - Barbarians Revenge Mod for Dacian Noble Cavalry, and Dacian Horse Archer base models
 - Macedon Expansion Mod for Chosen Skirmisher and Chosen Archer Warband base models
 - Rise of Empire Mod for Chosen Spearmen, Pikemen, Chosen Pikemen, Champions and Heavy Cavalry base models
 - 77 BC mod for Axemen base model
 
 
 Finally, thank you all for downloading and making this mod happen!

Nice work!

Thanks Jubal, Thrace is being worked on now, followed by Scythia.
