Great mod! One thing, I honestly can't figure out how to build a castle. Do you start from scratch with it or do you upgrade a castle that you've taken/been granted?

you can take a castle or get it from a king and upgrade it and so on but you can still build an outpost that can become like a castle for you have two options build your own op or take a castle or do both :d thats what i know about it so far...

England and France were about the same, using same feudalistic troops except that the French had no longbowmen(since it took a generation to train one just like knights and that was stupid). Spain and Portugal and other insignificant principalities would also field the same troops using the idea of feudalism. Think Western Powers- crusader armies...A large part of the Holy Roman Empire and more eastward towards the people of the Rus it was no longer Western Culture and I would say that Poland(not Lithuania since they were pagans), Denmark, Italy(especially crown of Aragon which consisted of both Muslim armies, Greek Orthodox armies and those of Central and Northern Italy not to mention French Lords who took the crown fielded the feeble French and lost the Kingdom;) should field different troops than most other Countries of the Crusader Kingdoms.

Are you asking:
a) Troop equipment should change with the environment
b) Why do two different factions field the same troops

a) Not sure that's possible with the Warband system
b) They're similar civilizations --> Branched off (predominantly) Western Europe. For example, both England and France field the same troops (and troop trees), since they're both Western European civilizations.
