DM BP is gameplay mod that changes the way the game is played.
It has so far addressed the following units:
Infantry line, Legion +1 melee armor, earlier infantry HP increased, infantry rct now same as foot archer
Logistics affects foot archers which are now 0.5 pop
Bowmen/Chariots/Scouts cost gold, **** your trash war.
Gold mine capacity doubled
Stone mine capacity doubled
Gather rates generally reduced
Trees capacity from 40/75 to 150/all
Phalanx line, HP increased, 0/20/40 respectively
Cavalry line, HP increased, 0/10/0 respectively, bonus attack against infantry removed, but attack against (all) units is (generally) increased.
>22 base cataphract, 17 base Hcavalry, 12 base Cavalry
>pierce armor upgrades affect cavalry, result is 1 PA variation from 3 (Cataphract) or 2 (Hcav)
>Cataphract armor reduced (4-->3)
**newer generation change, originally +2/+4/+6 attack, but damage output was thought too low**
Siege firepower reduction (1250 DPM --> 1000 DPM, Hcat DPM from 626 DPM base, to 514 DPM base)
Farms modified, infinite capacity but reduced gather rate, upgrades affect gather rate.
Civilizations have been changed:
Choson +engineering, +25% cavalry class movement speed, +composite bow
Roman -scythe, -nobility, +Lcav
Hittite +architecture (too decisive a weakness in DM)
Assyrian +HHA, +1 bronze shield, archery bonus from 25% to 33%, -engineering
Almost FU double siege should just go die
> finally the bonus actually leads to a competitive HA
Several changes I should remember but don't.
Several non DM suitable civs are 'discarded' but still playable (low priority)
Lcav, upgrades from chariot, even if you don't have it, doubles as scout, limited combat abilities for 40g's, specializes in bullshit-tier view distance (but now at 2.2 speed), but then so do ranged units so its all fair in the end. It 2 hits a priest but so does the cataphract. At least its worth 20G's less when you lose it. Firepower is similar to old HCav; pitiful.
Priest conversion rate reduced, priests are slightly less effective.
Modified gameplay leads to differing scenarios. Roman for one, is now (slightly) less powerful
