This submod is a total visual revamp of the faction of Rohan for latest version of vanilla TATW 3.2. It's based mostly on the LOTR film's visuals, with some slight alterations to the designs. All Rohan faction units were replaced with new models and textures. I've no intention to update the stats or anything else.
This is the download link of the mod. Please follow the instructions, since I do not know how to make a download installer that can make it for you. Please report any problems.
1.- Download the zip file from this link Twcenter.net, export the contents to this folder (or how you named your folder when you installed TATW 3.2)
SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods\Third_Age_3\data\unit_models\_units
It should look like this when you are done: SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods\Third_Age_3\data\unit_models\_units\northmen
2.- Download the file battle_models.modeldb.zip *remember to backup the original file!*, export the single file contained in it and replace the file on this folder:
SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods\Third_Age_3\data\unit_models
3.- Finally, download the file export_descr_unit.txt *remember to backup the original file!* and replace the file on this folder:
SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods\Third_Age_3\data
Credits & use authorization:
WETA for inspiration, Makehuman project for the faces models and textures, myself for everything else.
You may use in your mods freely as long as you give me credits and help me update the unit_info and unit_id files to reflect the new units.
Capes disappear when you see them from the front. Some capes are a bit stiff. Some foot guards go through the armor under certain animation positions.
Support: Help is needed to update the UI's, and make this preview page more awesome looking.
