IF YOU DOWNLOAD THIS MOD, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RATE IT AND/OR MAKE A COMMENT! Thanks. :)
This mod was for single players playing random maps, and for mapmakers who get a lot of more stuff to play around with. It features :
* Over 100 new units
* 9 new wizards
* New hero graphics
* Many new terrain objects
* New event images for the editor
There is no change in rules or balance, but some of the new units will be found in rogue shacks, inns etc, and also as guards.
If you have created a map using an earlier version of the 100 Units Mod, after installing this upgrade, you will have to open the map in the editor and save it once again to make sure it works with this version.
* Run the .exe found in the zip file
* Run AoW SM Setup, select "100units" in the Custom Resources drop-down box.
IMPORTANT! The installation program will not fully work with older versions of Windows (95,98,ME). There is a way around this problem though. After running the installation, open the program called "UGPM_gui.exe" which now is located in you default Shadow Magic directory. In the tree structure to the left, select the file "100units_script.txt". Hit CTRL+C. You'll notice some harddrive activity when the program creates all the new units. After that, the mod should work properly! (But don't forget to select it in the setup!)

This is a great little mod for single players and map makers. It was easy to install, and is fairly idiot proof as far as using it goes. Having access to more units adds a great deal of variety to the game, and variety is, as they say, the spice of life. The only problem I had with the mod was the occasional spelling error/typo that I would come across in the unit descriptions, but this is hardly earth shattering. Well worth the download...
Perhaps the readme.txt could include a listing of all the new units etc, so people who don't edit maps can see everything that has been added.
An excellent MOD, for any mapmaker. So far, not many maps have been made for it, but hopefully the Unofficial Patch 1.4 will include a lot of these units, and expose them to more public attention. Still, until 1.4 comes out, it's still the best MOD for this purpose. A must for any mapmaker.
None, really. Thanks for the many well designed units, and a good MOD overall, Magog. Good luck on any further MODs and maps!

This mod adds a lot of great content to the editor.
Great Mod, Even If Some Of The New Units Are Just Re-Coloured Versions Of Orignals...
(Not bad at all)
More variety creature mean more better. Thanks!
