Not dead. Simply not undergoing any 'main' development anymore. The mod is in a perfectly-usable state, as it is.

I¨m sorry, but if this is still alive, let me just say that the mod is great, but there are few mistakes. Kingdom of Bohemia, I'll send map so you can see how big it was: Cs.wikipedia.orgČeské_království#mediaviewer/File:Mapa_Čech_1712.jpg

It was biggest kingdom in Europe when Přemysl Otakar II. was in charge and here it has just 1 city, 1 castle and few villages? And where are other cities like Plzeň? And Slovakia is not there? It was part of Bohemia and Czechoslovakia until 1993. You could at least give Bratislava in there. I live in Prague, so I'm 90% sure it was this way. But mod itself is GREAT!

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