:::: Gameplay Notes ::::


========================
* Templar/Hospitaller/St.James Marshalls and the Canons of the Holy Sepulcher ha
ve the "unique unit" attribute, which means you cannot recruit more than one and
they cannot be awarded as Mission Reward gifts.
* Occasionally a unit's description does not appear on it's in-game unit ID card
when you right click on the unit while in battle-map mode. This happens only o
ccasionally, and randomly, however. The cause of this is unknown and it may be
a "vanilla" bug that we cannot fix with modding.

:::: FAQ ::::


========================
Q. Does this mod require Medieval II Kingdoms?
A. Yes, you must have Medieval II Kingdoms version 1.5 installed for this mod to
work. This is a modification of the Retrofit Mod by Unspoken Knight, which also
requires Kingdoms.
Q. Can I have both the Retrofit Mod and this mod installed at the same time?
A. Yes, but only by manually making a copy of your existing RetroMod folder, ren
aming said folder, installing my mod onto your original RetroMod installation, a
nd then manually creating a new desktop icon for your newly renamed RetroMod fol
der. I am not supporting this operation directly, as I am only supporting this m
od itself, which is a mod of the Retrofit Mod. Make sense? Good.
Q. Will you be making a version of this mod for vanilla (non-Kingdoms) M2TW, or
for X or Y Mod?
A. I have no plans at present to make additional versions of this mod. It is con
sidered "complete" and only offered in it's current format.

Q. I've downloaded and installed mod X onto your mod, or I've downloaded and ins
talled your mod onto mod Y, and now I'm getting a crash or other weird results,
what should I do?
A. I do not have the time, energy, or patience to download every single mod and
manually verify what files are included, and then to manually advise how said fi
les or changes could best be intregrated with my own file sets. A mod is compose
d, typically, of several to hundreds of text files, and when you over-write one
text file with another text file, you've just destroyed whatever data my mod dep
ended on that was contained in the over-written file. It is the user's responsib
ility to research, integrate, and quality test any integration of my mod into an
other, or any other mod into my mod. I'll be glad to answer simple modding quest
ions, but, aside from that, please don't copy another mod on top of mine and the
n ask me why the mod is no longer working. My mod is only supported in the state
in which I created it.
Q. Does this mod work with the 1.5 Kingdoms patch?
A. Yes, this mod requires the 1.5 Kingdoms patch.
Q. What are the Sergeant Swordsmen, Santiago Order Sergeants, Trecenezagos, Poli
sh/Hungarian Foot Knights, and Andalusian Cavalry units mentioned in your readme
? I've never heard of these units before.
A. The Grand Unit Addon Mod adds mostly new units from Kingdoms and enables some
units that were in the Grand Campaign files but not "activated". However, the o
riginal Grand Campaign files contain a number of usused unit models that were si
mply never assigned a texture, name, or recruitment slot. I assigned several uni
ts the necessary files to make them work and filled in "holes" in certain factio
n's unit rosters to balance out the additional units I added from Kingdoms.
Q. How exactly does the recruitment system work for the Outremer (Holy Land) uni
ts?
A. I wanted to include as many units as possible from the Kingdoms Crusade Campa
ign, yet include them in a way that doesn't allow the human player, or the AI pl
ayer, a guaranteed path to world domination by taking the Holy Land early in the
game. Taking and holding the Holy Land, or Outremer, as it was then known, shou
ld be a very difficult, timely, and expensive project for any player. Therefore,
I developed a system, using hidden resources, or "areas of recruitability", tha
t dictates when, and where, certain Outremer units are available. Unit availabil
ity will start very limited, and gradually increase as you progress through the
tech tree. Outremer units are somewhat more expensive than your typical faction
units. I ended up including nearly all of the new Crusades Campaign units, by di
viding them up into two major categories: Holy Land Units, recruitable anywhere
in Outremer, and Crusader States Units, recruitable in certain regions only. Her
e is a breakdown of how it works:
Holy Land Units
Available in Jerusalem, Antioch, Acre, Gaza, Aleppo, Damascus, and Edessa.
City/Castle Wall Upgrade Units: Templar and Hospitaller Knights, Sergeants, and
Gunners.
Crusader States Units
Kingdom of Jerusalem (Jerusalem)
City Barracks [Limited Recruitment]: Pisan and Genoese Sailors (Light Infantry),
Dismounted Knights of Jerusalem (Heavy Infantry), Knights of Jerusalem (Knight)
Archery Range: Templar and Hospitaller Crossbowmen
Castle Barracks [Experience Bonus]: Pisan and Genoese Sailors (Light Infantry),
Dismounted Knights of Jerusalem (Heavy Infantry)
Castle Stables [Experience Bonus]: Knights of Jerusalem
Principality of Antioch (Antioch)

City Barracks [Limited Recruitment]: Antioch Militia (Light Infantry), Dismounte


d Knights of Antioch (Heavy Infantry), Knights of Antioch (Knight)
Archery Range: Templar and Hospitaller Crossbowmen
Castle Barracks [Experience Bonus]: Antioch Militia (Light Infantry), Dismounted
Knights of Antioch (Heavy Infantry)
Castle Stables [Experience Bonus]: Knights of Antioch
County of Edessa (Edessa)
City Barracks [Limited Recruitment]: Edessan Squires (Light Infantry), Edessan G
uard (Heavy Infantry), Knights of Edessa (Knight)
Archery Range: Templar and Hospitaller Crossbowmen
Castle Barracks [Experience Bonus]: Edessan Squires (Light Infantry), Edessan Gu
ard (Heavy Infantry)
Castle Stables [Experience Bonus]: Knights of Edessa (Knight)
County of Tripoli (Acre)
City Barracks [Limited Recruitment]: Pisan and Genoese Sailors (Light Infantry),
Squires of Tripoli (Heavy Infantry), Knights of Tripoli (Knight)
Archery Range: Templar and Hospitaller Crossbowmen
Castle Barracks [Experience Bonus]: Pisan and Genoese Sailors (Light Infantry),
Squires of Tripoli (Heavy Infantry)
Castle Stables [Experience Bonus]: Knights of Tripoli (Knight)
Notes:
- Not all units gain an experience bonus at all levels, generally the higher the
tech, the more the bonus, but castles always get more of a bonus.
- Unit availability is very limited at the start, but increases as you tech-up.
- Cities do not have stables, so they can build knights at their barracks, but w
ith a unit availability penalty. Castles can recruit more knights and with highe
r experience levels.
- Please be aware that the Outremer recruitment system does not effect the stand
ard Order Chapterhouse recruitment system at all.
- There are also many new mercs available in the region, but, they cost a bundle
, and, be warned, the Muslim factions have some seriously nasty units, too!
Q. I see that Sword Brethren, Livonian Auxiliaries, and Christ Knights are only
available from certain cities, why is that?
A. These units represent the Livonian Brothers of the Sword, also known as Livon
ian Order or Brothers of the Sword. They were based in and around the regions r
epresented in the game of Riga, Stettin, and Thorn. After a major defeat, they
were later absorbed into the Teutonic Order, but, throughout their existence the
y always maintained their own headquarters and Grand Master. Rather than have t
hem recruitable from the Teutonic Order buildings, I decided to make them availa
ble to all Catholic factions from the cities/castles mentioned above. Any facti
on can "claim their allegiance" by capturing those cities/castles. The units ar
e available from the city/castle walls, therefore you do not need to worry about
making all of those cities into castles just to get these special units.
