This modification builds upon the prior release, however, it is intended to replace the prior proto.xml with a new one, so please un-install the prior version before placing this one on your computer. 

Torchy, painter, hunchback, juggler, drunk, Jack the Ripper, beefeater, butcher, musician, middle class female, middle class male, policeman, preacher, royal stage coach, hooker, nobleman, noblewoman, peasant class boy, peasant class girl, fisherman, street sweeper, vendor, thug, Russian cop 1, Russian cop 2. 

Portrait Icons
These were custom made and attached to the characters since the original game does not have portrait icons for them:

Policeman, butcher, m/c male, m/c female, p/c boy, p/c girl. 

Some of these can be used anywhere, however, the ones marked with an * are intended to dress the British HC foundation.

Tzar's cannon, infantry statue, equestrian statue, explorer statue, *barrels, *5 versions of street lamps. 

Notre Dame cathedral - is included since it can be used in combination with the hunchback.

This unit is the British HC. The model includes the street and few buildings. I've included it for experimental purposes and future mod releases will add more British HC buildings so people can completely recreate the British HC in their scenarios. 

Each unit has a number of animations that can be assigned using the "set animation" trigger in the editor and a list of the animations is included in the install notes. Most of the units may be handled in the same way as any other game units using triggers (move, unit create, etc), however, since they were designed as "dressing", and lack death and attack animations, their use likely best serves as embellishment. Also note the Hunchback requires slightly different handling which is detailed in the help notes. 

This is the second version of this mod and as time permits I will add and update it. Please be aware that the mod must be removed and the original proto.xml must be reinstalled before playing AOE3 on-line or before watching replays. Failure to do so will cause errors. 

Hope you enjoy adding home city characters to your game and scenarios as now you have quite a few to chose from!
