1v1 tournaments are too easy and allow to get rich quickly, so the player passes the time to find the tournaments around the map. I'd suggest you remove them and leave only team tournaments that forces players to create a strong team to have a chanches to win. With this simple prudence would become the best mod ever sice to historical accuracy and visual quality.

Last time I played this it lagged to hell and a lot of the landscape was pretty barren, it's an extremely impressive amount of modding work though. My question is has anyone ever managed to have a game that has lasted longer than 1000 days on this mod? I know TLD ran into ctd errors due to the number of parties on the map after a certain time.

It's a great mod, i'm having so much fun playing it.
i'd like to ask some questions if i may;

1)Is there any place i can see troop trees? i can't seem to find it.
2)Is there a language packet for faction names and troops in Latin? i just can't understand their names.
3)When i retire from Orders like Hospitallers, Teutonics or Templars can i rejoin them whenever i please?
4)My rig is I7 2670QM, GT555m, 8GB RAM, but i'm experiencing occasional crashes. Is it something that you're working on?
Anyways, thank you for developing such a great mod. Hope i find some answers for my questions. Cheers!

2)inside the OPTIONAL folder, extract the file within the mod directory and English names shall be applied (their is a text file for instructions)
3)You cannot
4)Turn on "Texture on Demand" in M&B launch Configuration. My PC is not much better than yours but this mod has yet to crash on me (day 487).
ALSO, try starting M&B with the WSE launcher(seperate download, google it), it solved crashes with the Floris mod for me.

Only have an answer for 3, no you cannot, after you leave one of the Knight orders, you are out for good.

You can see the troop trees with Morgh's M&B tools by opening up the troops.txt with the program and looking down the list of units.

I imagine a lot of the crashes are due to the amount of activity going on in the map. This is an issue with the Warband engine and is difficult to resolve, though It may have been sorted in one of the recent patches i'm not sure.

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