    - Description -
    Casual mla unit addon is a medium-sized mod, which intends to expand on the core game's unit roster. Our goals:
    • Improved late-game
    • Better inter-terrain options
    • More army options
    Very much work-in-progress mod, so expect changes and improvements. While this mod is playable with legion, this requires host to enable the merge feature (located on the left side of the screen when in community mods), and there were no balance considerations for legion/mla addon games.

    Well this is certainly interesting. Is it balanced with the Legion expansion in mind, or are the two mods functionally incompatible?

    Legion balance was not a consideration for this mod, but it should work with legion, assuming the merge option is used when activating the mods.
    Maybe at an latter date, a legion might receive some of its own addon units

    You might want to add a bit about enabling the unit merge behaviour in Community Mods when using this with mods like Legion.

    I'd also recommend a changelog, or a link to one, as well as making a copy of this post on Steam.

    Your Steam post is very lazy :p

    There's a button in the text editor that switches to the BB Code Editor, which provides you with the formatting Steam uses. Edit your main post, click that, boom, you have a complete Steam post (though you need to remove the quote marks around URLs, Steam doesn't like that).

    People don't follow links.

    I'd also recommend posting changelogs. It shows the mod is active, which is a plus for people.
