I recently installed the mod again and started off with the intentions of making a unified Germany rather than the holy roman empire. Took a while but in the end I captured all the thiefs and the screen came up saying they were defeated but then no lords started defecting. When I met one it said he was still part of the holy roman empire even though it was defeated and the king had "left the realm". Whats going on?

Hi! Can someone tell me how to have the morale of the army always high? I mean even if I have 500 men. (Yes I want to cheat,because the morale system is not good)

You can look at the Party Morale report at the World Map by pressing "Reports".

To have high morale you've got to have
-high Charisma and Leadership skills
-large variety of food
-recent victories over enemies
-avoiding party morale debuffs (e.g. losing a battle, running out of food)
-having a small amount of troops, as each trooper lowers your morale by 1

can i build a castle or not? if so, how?
and here the real reason i posted again:
aparently when i call my lances from my village i only get archers with a few cavalry, is there anything to make more melee infantry show up?

yes you can, when you get a village, build the manor in the building option, when it's finished, you will have another building option to build a fortified manor, when it's done, a newly built castle will appear near your village.
As for the lances, I'm not sure but maybe changing your recruiment laws may help.

Its alright, I like the setting and the map layout, but needs more troop variations.
