Down to 100 k in 1700. gg
I'm currently playing as Saxony, and one thing has become painfully apparent: The system for the spread of cholera and typhoid fever is quite ridiculous. I used to have a population of 500 k, which is now down by half over a course of 50 years -- the country just can't seem to rid itself of the disease.
That being said, keep up the good work. The mod is pretty great from what I could see so far.
The new textures look gorgeous and are quite the motivation to replay KotOR.
There are at times minor issues where textures refuse to load, and the game crashes as a result, but I attribute this to the game's age.
For those who have trouble with the links to the German sites, you're supposed to get the widescreen patcher:
Unzip to any location, locate your game dir, choose 1024x768 KotOR and patch (naturally, choose your desired resolution as well though bear in mind that you will definitely encounter errors with resolutions lower than 1440x900; i.e. the game will likely crash at startup). The game will start in 1024x768, but you'll find the new widescreen resolution option in the graphics menu.
Under this link
you'll find several hyperlinks for different resolutions. These are HUD and menu replacements for widescreen resolutions. Follow the link of your new KotOR resolution and extract the file to your KotOR override folder. There, now you have an ingame HUD fit for widescreen resolutions.
The new textures provided by this mod really come to shine in conjunction with higher widescreen resolutions hence patching is recommended.
Btw, a Windows 7 fix is included in this mod.
This is the Warband mod, I've been waiting for some time without being privy to its existence. The two most tedious mechanics, in my experience provision of sustenance and scavenging, are basically stripped away and left to the companions--brilliant. The recruitment overhaul is also a feature I would not want to miss.
Very well done, guys; good job, etc. (=
I am very much looking forward to future versions and what you are able to whip up respectively.
That's about the gist of it.
It saddens me to see one so ambitious such as yourself removed from the active modder community; but then again, Terra Nova mod is as close to perfect as it possibly could get (my opinion) to the point where I would not consider playing EUIII without this mod installed.
So, what I am trying to say, I guess: Thanks for all the good times and best of luck to you in your future endeavors! (=
"When you do get out, you will have a war with other Private bank 'controlled' nations."
So, in short, it's going to be awesome. (=
After getting Divine Wind to work (for some reason, I had to renaim the Vanilla music folder since startup crashes were related to in-game music somehow), I can say that Terra Nova is the single most greatest mod out there (well perhaps tied with Fall from Heaven 2 *wink*). I love it, and I can't even begin to fathom the billions of work hours you've put into this mod.
Now, there are a few bugs here and there, but most of them are more hilarious than annoying (e.g. Spain rushing to my aid after having cut all ties with them--probably still had the alliance cb).
Btw, I made the mistake opting for private bank integration. Is there a way to revoke this, or is the "shun option" triggered once inflation reaches a certain threshold? Otherwise, I'm curious as to how this is going to work out. (=
I'm speechless, this is simply amazing!
Germany is the place to be
(well at least if you consider discussions about income taxes of a turkish imigrant's second wife are more important than fighting unemployment ^^)
Y'all know, Call of Duty was disappointing at one point:
I see Russians, Americans, Englishmen but no German soldiers!?
So what's going on in the gaming-world? It seems as if Germany hasn't even participated in WWII...
That's why it is really good to see a mod which concentrates on a German storyline (I guess).
And yes "Sieg Heil" would be a stupid title - it would sound like the modder was a fascist ... "German Front" is imho a great title and by the way: Keep up the good work!

First: So far it looks pretty well.
Second: There's something which is spelled the wrong way.
The word "STEILHANDGRANATE" is wrong.
The correct spelling is "STIELHANDGRANATE", I know it because I'm a German. ^^
