Hello enjoying the mod so far but I'm having and issue with a certain texture. This may not seem bad but I cannot create my own kingdom troops due to the constant need to tab out of the game to hit an "RGL Warning: couldn't load "Textures/"" and my game Will probably fail to resize back into the game. Just wanted to report this error. Other than that I am finding this mod great. Keep up the good work!

Some the custom hairstyles are great! But I noticed when attacking cities some turn grey? but are fine if just walking around them. Also the japanese faction is defensive even if they attack you sometimes they just stand there and wait for you ( I out ranged them so i sat there and shot them all dead O_o ) also even a faction thats been defeated their generals like one man armies will charge around the map trying to capture cities by them selfs LOL its quite funny. Really great mod! Can not wait…

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 3/10

I REALLY think that the map needed a lot of improvement (honestly, it's just so, so very horrible it hurts), the mod could use a lot more towns, villages, castles, the units look great and all but they don't look like they come from where you can recruit them (especially the Scandinavian ones). This mod had a LOT of potential, it's too bad it wasn't reviewed in all dynamics of game-play before its release. There is another issue - The custom battle is not properly functional the enemy is just a…
