Further Instructions

  • Image: You must upload an image for the unit here. This should be the image found on the information panel for that unit in-game.
  • Class: This is where you put the unit class, for example "line Infantry" or "Elite Cavalry" etc.
  • Unit Size: This is where you put the number of soldiers/warriors in the unit, for example 160 men, For naval vessels put the number of crew at full strength (e.g. 300 men for a Heavy First Rate in Empire: Total War). Obviously, for units like Amazons/Screeching Women put "women" rather than men. For ships there is no need to split this into sailors and marines, but you can if you wish. Make sure to use the ultra/Huge unit size for all units.
  • Weaponry: This is where you put the weaponry for the unit. It can either be swords, spears, muskets, axes etc. or a combination (e.g. Swords and Muskets for ETW Grenadiers). For ships, put the number of guns/other weapons (e.g. 106 guns).
  • Morale: Put the unit's morale value here.
  • Melee Attack: Put the unit's melee attack value here.
  • Ranged Attack: Put the unit's ranged attack (ie the strength of the weapon itself) here if the unit as one. If not, just put N/A.
  • Defence Skill: Put the unit's defence skill value here.
  • Armour: Put the unit's armor value here.
  • Shield: Put the unit's shield value here.
  • Defence: This should be depreciated, as it's a total of the Defence+Shield+Armour.
  • Charge Bonus: Put the unit's charge bonus here. If it doesn't have one, put 0.
  • Accuracy: Put the unit's accuracy here. If the unit has no ranged weaponry put N/A instead.
  • Range: Put the maximum range of the unit's weaponry here. As above, if it doesn't have a ranged weapon put N/A.
  • Ammunition: Put how much ammunition the unit can carry here. If ammunition is unlimited put "Infinite", if the unit has no ranged weaponry put "N/A".
  • Region: You should put the region where the unit can be recruited from in here. This can be found in the relevant part of the game files. For units that can be recruited worldwide, use Global.
  • Recruitment Cost: This must be the recruitment cost of the unit on Normal difficulty.
  • Upkeep Cost: This must be the upkeep cost of the unit on Normal difficulty.
  • Turns to Build: This is for how many turns the unit takes to build.
  • Unit Limit:Put the maximum number of this units that a faction can have at once here. If the unit has no limit put "None" or "Unlimited".
  • Building Requirements: You should put the lowest tier building that can recruit this unit (e.g. Governor's House etc.). Do not put more than one building in this section.
  • Tech Requirements: This is where you put technology requirements for the unit, e.g. Marian Reforms, Steam Engines, etc. If there is more than one then list them as bullet points using the <li and </li> tags. If the unit does not require any technology, put None.
  • Attributes: This is where you put the units attributes as they appear on the unit information panel in-game (e.g. Paths Seldom Trod etc.) or abilities like "Broadside", "Can't Hide" or "Can form Testudo". If there is more than one then list them as bullet points using the <li and </li> tags. Do not include things like the fortifications you can get if an army in Empire: Total War has been stationary for at least a turn (though stakes for ETW light infantry, which they can set up at any point during the battle, are fine). Likewise, things like "can withdraw" or "can board ships" should not be included as pretty much every unit in every TW game can do these.
