===[TASK]=== Crowd Sourced - Thracians (Faction)

Recommended Posts

Here is a tiny A23 mod with six Thracian units (actors, icons, templates; three ranks each), made with existing art assets: thracians.zip

[EDIT]: As you can see the swordsmen use the Iberian falcata; they actually should have a sica, but I need a new weapon prop for that; see https://wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?/topic/26405-request-sica-and-falx/

UPDATE:

I have updated my mod with @Nescios actor files and his archers and spearman unit.

(I need new icons for the new units.)

I have made a pull request at:https://github.com/0ADMods/thracians/pull/1 @wackyserious

I think the owner of the repository has to push my pull request. 

I think this is what you meant? I am not that familiar with git/github...

If you want I can push but I need @wackyserious approval. (or other members if they are here.)

@Stan` is the caretaker of the Thracian project, although if the additions only affect the unit roster, it should be good to push. :)  The last time I tested the mod, the faction is not yet deemed to be playable in a single match due to the lack of units and some undefined parts of the civ file.

https://github.com/0ADMods/thracians/pull/1 “Files changed: 265” Isn't that unnecessary large?

Before a civ.json file is set to `"SelectableInGameSetup": true` the civ should have a somewhat complete template set (both structures and units). Reusing actors from other factions is fine (e.g. Athenian ships).

Is this true?

The Odrysian Kingdom was the first of many Thracian Unions, and consisted of most of what is now Bulgaria, from the Black Sea, to the Danube. It encompassed many tribes such as the Odrysian's (go figure) the Getae, and other various independent Thracian Tribes. They combined Hellenistic and "barbarian" warfare together, using the phalanx, but also using heavy and light infantry. They were well known for their cavalry power, as well.

Genava55 suggested that I use the Thracian Structure set for the Illyrians. Doing so, I would not want to duplicate the art files for the Thracian structure set. Would it be okay to you guys if I just make the Thracian mod as a dependency for the Illyrian mod. To put it simply, in order to play the Illyrian mod, you have to download the Thracian mod first to acquire the structure set art files.

I am currently patching up the civ file together with the needed simulation files and actor files. Might add up Thracian art contents for the units, if time could do.

Ok so I wanted to ask before playing them, is this mod a). playable and useful; and b). is it playable as the fgod for example where the other players in multiplayer do not have to add it themselves like with borg mod

a.) At its current state, no (A commit which is due within a couple of days might make this playable for players who use the SVN version of the game)

b.) Not sure about compatibility, others could answer this, maybe

Thracian texture sets are now in the SVN version. I will work on some things before committing the functional faction to the repository. Yesterday, I tested this and played as the Thracians versus the Illyrians on the new farmlands map. It was so immersive, I enjoyed it. :)

Ok have tested several times the mod does not work on random maps and it does not work on MP unless the other players have the mod.

`mod.json` file is missing (intentional?), also for Illyrians mod. A licence file should be added too.

Out of curiosity, why do you use five-letter civ abbreviations (illyr, thrac)? Most 0 A.D. civs have four letters (e.g. brit, celt, gaul, etc.).
