If using lance recruitment, go to your village, castle, or town and recruit lances. At least one man will be a mounted warrior who upgrades into a knight.

Yes this mod is great but none of the archers fire when we siege anything I am pretty sure archers would fire on the walls in this time period is anyone else having this problem, and ya some soldiers get stuck behind walls during sieges. thanks for this mod!!

The mod is great, but there is a huge bug !!!!! In some sieges like Siena, Verona the enemies don't respawn and are stuck behind the walls at calls. As a result of this you can reach them only with armed weapons. But then you can kill a few soldiers and then you have to leave the battlefield (retreat) because you can not reach the enemy.
It would be awesome if there were more women avaible for marriage. In Communi of Guelfi there is no women for marriage.

Maybe you could set the graphic options to low and the corpes limit to 0. The game had problems to run on my laptop and crashes randomly until I changed the graphic settings. Something is wrong with this mod, because I can run most recent titles without problems.

You can actually build your own monastery and recruit from the various knightly orders in this mod, which is awesome. You can also convince the pope to call a crusade or get imams to call a jihad (I am not sure about the last one, have only played as Europeans or Mongols)

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