Hi everyone, this is my first mod. I recently got into AoM TT again. This is a simple protox edit that changes some unit stats to make the game, in my opinion, more realistic yet still balanced.
to install, copy protox.xmb file to age of mythology/data directory. overwrite current protox file. compatible with the titans only.
Please read general and culture specific changes. Recommended to play on moderate instead of hard.
>Villagers cost no population and have more health and defense (but vulnerable to cavalry)
>fishing ships cost no population
>transport ships only 1 pop space
>Basic soldiers cost only 1 pop and cavalry 2 pop.
>Walls and towers have much more health (wall costs 20g, takes 10sec to build and has 5000health)
>Houses now only give 5 pop but build limit increased to 20 (manors give 10 pop, build limit of 10) and have high health
>Build limit of towers/mirror towers increased slightly
>melee myth units more health but same armor and attack
>hill forts, palaces etc more attack and health but defense no change
>Town centers have drastically high health
Please read culture specific changes too! I have tried to make it as balanced as possible.
>Hoplites now have high pierce armor (the big shield has a purpose) but low crush and hack armor. Their spear attack is now pierce instead of hack. Less attack but more health and defense. They may seem overpowered but they were the bulk of greek armies for a reason. they still can be well countered though.

>Hippikon higher health and armor but cost more
