Changelog:

2.11
* Drastically reduced injury chances
* Re-enabled varies AoE damage types that got disabled by backend changes

2.01 (Holy Cow! New milestone release!):
* Proper promotion names
* A new unit: the Recruiter (requires tech Doctrine; only buildable in cities with Wine. Warrior-level midgame unit that has a 50% chance to enlist on kills!

1.94:
* Increased the effectiveness of Strike and a few other promotions
* Rebalanced specialty units
* Reworked nomad barbarians; be warned, they are scary as times goes on!
* All Elephants now heal 2 HP automatically
* Palace Guards are now melee units.
* Promotions tweaked; fast healing added to Herbalist promotion track
* Specialization: Chariots strength lowered, but are now a strong counter to all militia units; heavy infantry now a major counter to ranged units
* Siege unit and global modifier balance; defensive building changes

1.8:
* Replaced all HP changes (which causes a UI bug) with defensive modifiers
* Elephants units now start automatically heal slowly (Herbalist)
* Balance pass for naval units; siege units; buffed Engineer trait
* Palace guards now get progressively more expensive faster
* Fierce generals will now push enemy units attacked

1.7:
* Rebalancing pass through all the units to emphasize specialization
* Removed modded unit balance changes that had since been incorporated into the main build
* Temporarily disabled some early game unit changes that are known to cause the UI HP bar bug (until Devs fix it :/)

1.6:
* Generals can now be wounded or badly wounded in battle, with a large variety of potential outcomes
* Militia units reworked to be more tactically distinct from melee infantry units
* Stronghold and elite officer now both grant a random promotion to units built in the city

1.5:
* Naval combat revamp:

  1. Bireme now range 2
  2. Quadrireme (new unit): Strength 6, early game long range attack ship with AoE damage
  3. Trireme now HP 22, causes panic (and is the only melee naval unit left)
  4. Dromon: late game long range unit, str 8, HP 25, and is now a siege ship (no distance penalty, bonus against cities)

1.41:
* Lowered HP of slinger, archer, warrior, spearman and pikeman to 18

* Removed swordsman's infantry bonus
* Longbowman is now Str 5, Range 4, splash 100%, and HP 18.
* Maceman now attacks everyone around them (AoE: Circle)
* Introducing the Carroballista, the horse-pulled field siege artillery. Str of only 4, requiring horse to build and won't be available until Battleline, this unit has one incredible trick up its sleeves: it attacks forward 3 tile at 200%, so while the enemy you aim at won't suffer much, those behind him are doomed.

1.3:
* Balance pass; fixed a bug and fine tuned some units
* Shifted military-related settings (such as hostile territory movement speed and city defense strength) from Dynamic World to this mod, while magnifying some effects

* Heavy Footman. Requires local source of ORE to build. Expensive, slow but strong. Strength: 5 HP:25; Fatigue limit: 2
* Palace Guard. Can only be built in the capital. Strong militia unit (requires growth instead of training to build). Strength: 5; starts with: Homelander (+5 HP per heal action); Movement limit: 1; cannot gain experience nor have general
* Warrior Monk. Costs an Apprentice Monk specialist to build. Very cheap & strong melee unit requiring growth instead of training to build. Strength: 6; starts with: Panic; Movement and Fatigue limit: 3; maintenance costs civics and food

1.0:
* Milestone release!!

* ...and much more!

Something i have noticed is that the amount they get wounded is up dramatically, almost to the point where trying to clean out a camp gets you 4 events to that 1 general.

Is it ok to use Units+ alongside this mod, or will it be unbalanced? Thank you :-)
