However, as far as I know, Acid Dragon is working on the final version of this mod.

Acid Dragon confirmed on the official Ubi forums one month ago that he is working on a new final version of the AC mod. Was there a further update after this?

Here the post I am referring to.

I think he's doing more than just fixing it for the newest version. He had plans to add more creatures and replace some of the less popular ones, like the strider. Plus real life gets in the way.

The good thing about support ending, is that mods don't have to be updated for compatibility, they can focus on pure improvements and additions.

Yeah I see what you mean.
I'm definitely not happy the support has been ended but waiting months to get a patch which breakes many new things & makes all previous mods incompatible was frustrating as well.

I hope he keeps the new version in the same vein like the last one, only adding more alternative options to the existing units. I am personally against removing units from the base game completely.
And I couldn't care less if the HC retro crowd doesn't like the Strider. I personally think it has a cool concept & backstory.

*boos soilburn*

Also, really, backstory?

Most Erwin backstories to all of the "beastmen" go like "yeah wizards crossed this because they thought they would made good X, then they gifted them to Y faction because meh... and there they found their true home!"

Except for the part where the Strider is not a Beastman.
It is a puppet that Faceless use in order to not endanger themselves in battle (due to their numbers diminishing so fast). Which is a quite interesting & innovative concept for the unit actually (and fits the whole "puppeteer" theme of the Faceless, see H6 and lore). I do understand why some don't like the look of the unit itself (its animations are too fast/clunky), but the idea is there and it is solid.

AD is part of that "retro" crowd that wants to replace Strider with Manticore He said it himself on Acid Cave here that he's gonna replace the strider

A retro guy who is modding Faceless and Kappas into towns? Do you even check his work before you post? He is doing exactly the right thing.
Anyway, even if he wanted to replace the Strider, imo it would be unwise to do so. There are not enough neutrals to go around replacing stuff. There are not even enough of them to offer alternatives to all tiers. Why not offer the Manticore as an extra alternative instead?

Why don't you check his posts? Even though AD likes Ashan and I also used quotes to denote that, he said he doesn't like striders and wants to replace them: source

I do not need to check his posts, I checked his mod and I like it very much. There is not even a single choice he made that I do not agree with. This is why I believe he might think twice about replacing a unit completely, it goes against all the work he has done so far with this mod. The whole concept of the mod is to offer "alternative creatures" to the existing ones, not replace them completely. I personally like the Manticore as much as the Stridet, so I am not partial to this. I just wish to have both options, like it applies to all other new units he added.

@Verriker: Stop discrediting yourself, please. If you have something constructive to add related to the discussion content, then do it. But "go make your own mod" is neither constructive nor related to what I said in any way.

no need for rude irrationally hostile responses mate, merely offering you a course of action to empower you and get what you want lol

obviously my suggestion is constructive and related to what you said in any way despite the randomly insisting otherwise mate,
you are making a request/demand which is not currently in the scope of this mod according to the busy mod creator, therefore it may make sense for you to pursue a side mod which does what you want in the event your request/demand is dismissed, overlooked or delayed indefinitely lol

having briefly tried the editor modding myself it is actually so easy to exchange creatures around that a well trained monkey could literally do it I assure you, don't be intimidated by a fear it is too complicated or anything, if you would like some friendly step by step guidance in that I could certainly give you that as soon as I have a working PC once again lol
