||AoM: The Titans
By: Lord DiGangi
Just run the auto installer and read the read me to find out how to intall the proto stats
If you wish to manually install I have included the files for you, just place the files in the folders of AOM that I have named for you
Example: textures go in the textures folder
Run the uninstaller (found in your programs menu) and remove proto stats, the read me file is there for a reason! use it! Or you can remove the files placed in the AOM folders
Lord Achilles is based on Brad Pitt from the movie Troy and is a new unit based on the mrymidon. This is only version 1 and in about a week I will realease version 2 with many new features.
-Notes on Achilles-
~This is my first published mod, hope you guys are pleased
~Cinematic Version is also going to be added soon
Achilles is a strong unit that is not to be underestimated by himself, escpecially with his special attack. I can assure this new unit is really great for Troy campaigns and scenarios

sounds file is updated and I am sorry but I am working to get the icons working im having problems :S
I thought you guys might want a look at the history of Achilles....its been updated
Achilles was the son of the mortal Peleus and the Nereid Thetis. He was the mightiest of the Greeks who fought in the Trojan War, and was the hero of Homer's Iliad.
Thetis attempted unsuccessfully to make her son immortal. There are two versions of the story. In the earlier version, Thetis anointed the infant with ambrosia and then placed him upon a fire to burn away his mortal portions; she was interrupted by Peleus, whereupon she abandoned both father and son in a rage. Peleus placed the child in the care of the Centaur Chiron, who raised and educated the boy. In the later version, she held the young Achilles by the heel and dipped him in the river Styx; everything the sacred waters touched became invulnerable, but the heel remained dry and therefore unprotected.
When Achilles was a boy, the seer Calchas prophesied that the city of Troy could not be taken without his help. Thetis knew that, if her son went to Troy, he would die an early death, so she sent him to the court of Lycomedes, in Scyros; there he was hidden, disguised as a young girl. During his stay he had an affair with Lycomedes' daughter, Deidameia, and she had a son, Pyrrhus (or Neoptolemus), by him..........
That is only a small taste of history file included in the download.

Your Lord Achilles textures were really hard to define cause its all black. Also there are no icons or existing icons you used. The texture of the face doesn't look too good. I didn't know Lord achilles has a cape. Your histroy file was detailed enough. I like your way of giving the Lord Achilles a different sword and sheild than the mryidoms, but other than that.....
Some people may not like to use auto-installers. Try and include the auto installers and your files in your zip folder. Also try not to use microsoft words for readmes and proto files - they need to load so notepad is a lot more efficient. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh but i'm just trying to help you on your mod so you could make better ones in the future
Edit: Your links to the screenshots DO NOT work. Please update them. I look forward to Version 2.

i give this a 3 beacuse i know for a fact that Lord Di Gangi has worked his arse off on it, and it is also his first new unit, so i am giving him a middle rating to help encourgae people like him to mod, i mean, my first file got two fives (and a 1 lol) i was expecting all 1's(and the 1 result came from a m8 of mine taking the piss), the good results made me work harder on my next ones, so hopefully, although it's not perfect, the Lord Achilles mod will become better and more refined as we see new versions being made, good luck to u m8
obviusly a lot of time put into this
good resemblence of Achillies from Troy
Although a good likness the textures do need to be touched up on
Auto Installers are frowned upon by most people, except maybe snuggins lol (no offence m8 but u do ask for them a lot)

Very well constructed anim file, whicg works perfectly with the unit. Achilles texture is absolutely perfect for who he is, as is the base unit that you used. His proto work was very well done, with good enough stats for him to fit into the game very nicely and he even had a special attack, which also worked well.
I like the fact you used a myrmidon, as Achilles was a myrmidon, he look and performed very well in game - a worthy addition.
You have really got the hang of his modding lark, with most areas of skill covered exceptionally well.
