This mod adds the Numidians as a selectable culture in the Classical Era. No other selectable cultures are replaced, though the Numidian Independent People are replaced by the Thracians. Otherwise the mod does not change anything outside of this specific culture.
The Numidians are also part of my Africa Culture Pack and my Culture Super Pack.
This mod is centered on pushing the player into a different playstyle. Please read the description below to see all of the effects of this culture.
The Numidians have their own Legacy Trait, Emblematic Quarter, and Emblematic Unit. Info below:
Legacy Trait: Renowned Horsemen: -5% to upkeep cost on cavalry units per Horses; +1% Combat Strength to cavalry units per Horses
Emblematic District: Horse Breeder: +5 Food; +2 Money; +1 Food and +1 Money per Horses; +5 Food and +5 Money per adjacent Horses; Creates a Horses deposit and exploits it; -10 Stability; Is a spawn point for land units
Emblematic Unit: Numidian Cavalry: Does not replace any unit; Mounted Ranged unit with 20 Combat Strength and 1 Range; In battle may move until movement points are exhausted; Unlocks at Standing Army; Costs 4 Population to build
Culture Trait (not passed on after advancing to another culture): Horse Warriors: May not build any non-cavalry units; All cavalry units must be bought with Population; All cavalry units have increased Horses requirements; All cavalry units may scale fortifications
If you encounter bugs, please let me know! You can find me on Reddit, Steam, and Discord under the name uncle2fire.

This mod is compatible with my other added culture mods EXCEPT FOR the Africa Pack and the Culture Super Pack. This mod has not been tested with any mods made by other creators.
Credit and many thanks for the art for the Numidian Cavalry goes to kul!
Who are the Numidians?
A Berber group that inhabited northern Africa during classical antiquity, the Numidians interacted closely with the Carthaginians, who settled near the Numidian homelands in the 9th century BC. The Numidians had a reputation throughout the Mediterranean as extremely skilled light cavalrymen, and were employed by Carthage, Rome, and other states as mercenaries and auxiliary warriors for centuries. After the defeat of Carthage by Rome, the Numidians were eventually made a Roman client state but remained a common source for auxiliary cavalry in the Roman army until the 4th century.
