---- AI ----
Now builds Trade guild to increase population by 50 (or 100 if asian) if very rich.
Now counters enemy units more proficiently, by amassing equal forces (previously they could make 10 pikemen to match your 20 horsemen, but if you build 200 horsemen they would only make up to 10 pikemen, now they can make as many as needed).
Now builds far more special units than before (100-200 stone giants, dragons, horse samurai, janissary, etc.)

---- UNITS ----
Rebalanced all units to be viable, made certain units counters to others (the full changes can be found in the Units_Balance excel spreadsheet file.
Major rebalances to gameplay:
Foot samurai now acts as a 50% maceman (against siege), 50% pikeman (against horse) unit for Asian race which had no anti-cavalry unit.
Dragons nerfed. Stone giants & jinns buffed. Magical units can primarily be destroyed by priests, rest is weak against them.
Crusaders made slower to produce and a bit more expensive.
Mages of any type can now learn all spells of all guilds (no longer need to worry about micromanaging different mages).
Can build Messiah from magic portal for 50 000 gold. Feel free to play without this feature or remove it.
European spies can now turn invisible. If you refresh spell you can stay permanently invisible.
Priests can now learn Magic Vision.
Added new unit Teuton Knight. Slowest unit in the game but very tanky in hp and defense. Bonus tankiness against arrow units & towers.

Added new Cannon Tower for Arabs, Burj al Arab. Arabian peasants can no longer build towers that can upgrade to regular cannon towers. To unlock burj al arab you have to research Cannon Tower tech from Siege Workshop and then Burj al Arab uprade from Arabian Trade Guild.
Asian farms can now make cows (once you have the upgrade).
Asian market buy items tech no longer available (caused crashed once 1000 items were generated).
All hotkeys of buildings moved to ASDF ZXCV (considering bottom User Interface layout). Reordered some spell hotkeys to be more user-friendly (those that are used during combat take the important slots like F, E, etc.).

Nice, good start for a mod.

More balancing is always welcome, new unit and building fit perfectly. Russian language is not a problem but an English version would definitely help with mod's popularity.

It's in Bulgarian, sorry :D
You can delete the LOCAL folder and put in your String files. You'll just have to add an extra string for teuton knight and burj al arab (techs n units) if you know how. Eventually I might translate it to eng when I do a preinstall :)
