All factions playable in custom battles

Hattori only aviable with LE, Ikko-Ikki with DLC, the minor Genpai Clans won't be playable in UCM, because it can give people without the DLC strange bugs.

In custom battles you can now choose new kind of generals (Standard, Bow, Matchlock, History Battles, Daimyo)

The Guard size and moral depends of the general itself

Normal cost 300, 20 morale, 30 men
Bow cost 400, 20 morale, 30 men
Matchlock cost 600, 20 morale, 30 men
History weak cost 800, 22 morale, 60 men
History strong cost 900, 25 morale, 80 men
Daimyo cost 1000, 30 morale, 100 men

Ikko-ikki have a few new exclusive units, they will be now more special than other clans in campaign.

Christian got a new unit, the Flamethrower in campaign.

Line-Ashigaru are better Matchlock Ashigaru with more men and are much better trained and organized.

Tokugawa and Hattori clan have special Ninjas, the Assassins from the Tokugawa clan are well trainend soldiers with the bow. Hattori Sharpshooters prefer more armour than other ninjas, they are eqipped with a teppo and they know how to use it good.

Samurai Saboteurs are special samurai with a shotgun like teppo, they range is low compared to others and ammo less, but once in range, they get everything, their kisho training helps them alot for an excelent for ambush.

Morale changes:

Morale is quite important now, if your general dies, you could loose a winning battle easy. Troops getting ambushed, attacked from behind or flanked also get a morale hit. But if troops get attack from infront, they get a small moral bonus, because they can prepare for battle. The units have now much better fatigue, they can run longer and don't get so fast tired, but once they get tired they morale could get a hit. Cavalry is very effective against infantry, especialy from behind, most weak troops flee imediatly, but fleeing troops have a greater chance to come back and fight again. There are also many other morale things changed, just check it out.

There will be some music addons you can choose from.

Ultimate Combat Mod relaunch

I am proud to announce an upcoming version of this mod!

Since the addon the game changed alot and it's time to change it again...
But notice that the mod will not return back like 0.4F was.

We will catch up ideas from that version and are going to improve them. Also there will be only one version, so no Normal/Hardcore/Tactic for now. The first version will be simple compared to older ones.

Features for 0.5 are:

-More Generals & custom abilities
You can choose what kind of generals you want. From melee to range. Or why always mounted? Give him a No-Dachi and go hunting! Or do you prefer a stealthy one with bombs?

-Advanced Battles
Battles will be different than vanilla. We are going to make an unique balancing system. I would say that the target is not realism. There will be more information later about this.

-New unit variations
Tiered of the same old clone armies? We give them style! There are going to be lot's of different Samurai. Some you have seen allready, like the hero units.

-New unique units
Flamethrowers, Saboteurs, Grenade Launcher Ashigaru and more are waiting for you!

-Single Unit Controlling
Ever thought controlling a single unit would be awsome? We did that. Choose one of many individual master of the battlefield. They are powerful but not godlike!

This mod will focus in feature for custom battles and classic mp battles. An example battle involving those "One-Man-Troops" would be a siege battle. With 2 players & 1 AI vs 1 AI. Each player will have one master and nothing else. While the AI battle against, the players try to go stealthy into the castle. You could also give the enemy AI an master too. Going for an awesome 1vs1 fight!

How you mean that?

You want an option to disable archers for custom battles?
I'm not sure if it's possible, haven't tried it.

I am new to this kinda stuff. Is Shogun 2 and its mods easy to play and micro manage those large armies? I am accustomed to C&C Generals, Total Annihilation, Warhammer 40k ect. Help me understand better & make up my mind weather to buy Shogun 2 and Napolean games from the store.

These games handle unit movement completely different, but its quite simple actually and you should not have any problems. In fact having a change is quite nice IMO.

Its somewhat similar to battlefield middle earth troop movement, you know those battalions.
