Warcrafthero presents,
The Iazyges, Marcomanni and Quadi Mod - a mod for Rome: Total War Barbarian Invasion

Hello, some of you may know that in Barbarian Invasion there are some "cut factions". Two of these are well known, The White Huns and Moors, but among the files I found references of another three: The Iazyges, The Marcomanni and The Quadi. Only a few files about these factions can be found in Barbarian Invasion, such as battle banners, captain banners and symbols in the interface. Unfortunately no unit skins or unit cards were left so I do not know what units they had and what was their role in the game; it is possible that they were cut during the early stages of development.

So, in this mod I have replaced the Burgundii, Langobards and Roxolani with these factions, assigned them some units and placed them in the campaign map.

Features:

- The mod is mod-foldered. This means that the files of the original games are not modified as the mod has its own folder.
- Replaced the Burgundii, Langobards and Roxolani with Iazyges, Marcommanni and Quadi. Fully playable in campaign and custom battles mode.
- Alemanni, Celts and Saxons can become an horde.
- Reworked some barbarian horde units.
- Changed/fixed some unit icons.
- New model for the Kerns. (actually an unused model found in the vanilla game)
- Added an "all factions" provincial campaign where the player can also play as the Romano-British, Slavs and Ostrogoths.
- Fixed various bugs thanks to player1 and Borsook BUG-FIXER.

Awesome! i was originally looking into modding and adding the Iazyges myself some months ago but forgot to back it all up when doing a regular windows wipe and lost everything. The roster for them is pretty spot on good work!  ;D

It's always been a pity that the engine didn't just let you add more factions, having the whole of Europe being a complete patchwork of these sorts of guys would've been great.
