<~HISTORY BEHIND THE MOD~>
****************************************************************

Well this mod started when Mythos_Ruler contacted me about making a mod for a scen of his called Thermopylae ~ The Gates of Fire. He wanted me to make the hoplites look a bit more historically correct which I was totally for and change Theseus into King Leonidas. Later the greek villager got added to the "to be historically accuratized" mod list. After viewing the excellent references Mythos sent me I went straight to work. Soon I came across the great greek style shield avatars used in WildFireGame's 0ad forums and I decided they would be perfect for the mod. So Mythos contacted (because he is working on the 0ad project as well)  the good people at WFG and got permission to use the avatars.

After several failed textures and ideas I finally perfected it and had it tested by several people.

<~ SPECIAL NOTES ~>
****************************************************************

Thank you for downloading The Historical Hellenic Hoplite Mod. I would like to thank Mythos_Ruler for giving me the idea for this and providing me with such great historical referances and great advise on this mod. I would also like to thank GloryofSparta for her 
valuable input and support on this mod and finally I would like to thank the good people at WildFireGames for allowing me to use some of their 0ad avatars for the shield textures (In particular, I would like to thank the creator Ryan Karsten AKA IrishStag).

I appolagise for a two inaccuracies. The first one was a sword on the hoplies side, unfortunantly the sword looked stupid and warped on the model so it was decided to be removed. The second inaccuracy is the cinematic spears, I would have corected it if I had the US$30 000 program however. I sincerely appolagise for this inacuracies.
