This patch is split off from D2900.
Camels are larger, heavier, and stronger animals than horses. This patch gives camels 20% more health and 10% less movement speed than their cavalry counterparts. Moreover, camels have the Cavalry class removed, which means they no longer benefit from cavalry-specific technologies and auras (they still benefit from forge technologies and other generic technologies and auras).
Effectively this means:
health , movement speed cavalry : 1 , 1 with technologies: 1.1 , 1.1 camels : 1.2 , 0.9
Currently there are only two camels in game, the Ptolemaic starter unit and the Blemmye mercenary for the Kushites. With this patch they become easier to catch but a bit harder to kill, differentiating them from ordinary ranged cavalry.
