He or she will transform into a Black Rider after death. The Black Rider will transform into a Heavy Catapult after it dies. Note 2: Enable this code after establishing your Empire and clicking on the center of a town. Note 3: Enable this code after a catapult is selected.
Some times, if you insert thejack be nimble code, the catapults might fire cows instead! But after a couple of shots it will go back to firing people.
Catapults, as you will soon discover, are great weapons to attack towers and other buildings with lots of hit-points. Actually, I believe that the Helepolis is a better choice. Although its attack is basically centered in one area, they have a rapid rate of fire. The attack strength of the Helepolis is only 40, compared to the Heavy Catapult`s 60. The major difference I like to use the Helepolis is that they are not converted as easily as the Catapults, and also that they can attack units like Centurions and Cataphracts closer in. Anyway, the risk of Friendly Fire with Heavy Catapults is tremendous, you reduce the risk of it with Ballistas and Helepolises. Also, the Helepolis is constructed twice as fast as the Heavy Catapult.
If you need more units, but the population limit stops you, try this. Bring your population to 1 unit beneath the population limit. Now, make sure you have lots of resources, enough to build several units. Next, go to all the buildings that can produce units, and QUICKLY click on the icon that makes the unit. Do this on every building as fast as you can, but you can only continue until a unit is completed, thus bringing your population to it's limit. HOWEVER, the game will complete all the units you started! With this, going fast enough, you, will be able to go over 10 units above the population limit.
When you advance to the Bronze age and are able to build Temples do "hoyohoyo" ( the strong priest cheat) before researching any technologies in the Temple, after putting the code in you will not get a priest with 600 hp but 1200 hp. Also not a speed of 10 but a speed of 14! It makes for a much better cheat
