Non Spear Infantry Attack Boost

All melee non spear infantry get +1 attack bonus.

Why ?

Cavalry is strong in SSHIP.
Strong cavalry forces everybody to use a lot of spear units.
And many spear units are quite strong, very universal.
Spear units can defend from cavalry but also they handle enemy sword / mace / … infantry quite well.
So a lot of armies (ex. my armies) consists of cavalry, missile, a lot of spear units and some sword / mace units.

So I want to boost attack of non-spear non-polearm melee infantry, to make it more useful, to create more diversity on battlefield.
With this tweak, sword & mace infantry should deal more quickly with spear infantry, so pure cavalry & spear armies will be not so useful.


  • All melee infantry units that:
  • as primary weapon are NOT using spears or knifes
  • or can't go phalanx formation
  • or doesn't have in name halberds / berdishe
  • get +1 attack bonus to primary weapon.
  • so it means : all infantry with primary weapon such as swords or maces or axes (but not polearms !) got +1 attack bonus to that weapon.
