Make converts armable

  • Raven

    Raven - 2012-02-28

    One thing in colonization and freecol I had issue with is the converts. I usually put out a lot of missionaries, so that my early colonies get flooded by converts, which is a great mechanic and a real boon in the early game. But in time you replace the converts with specialists and since you they are not effective in factories, and you can't arm them, they become pretty useless.

    So why not allow the player to arm his converts? Then let them become indian dragoons/armed braves with the unique look that's already in the game. It would be awesome to have your own indian contingents. Should be a fairly minor change as well.

    This change is Col1-incompatible.  I recommend implementing it as as a mod.

    Not unless you are planning to provide the requisite artwork.
