This mod has no single player campaign component but certainly can be played by hosting your own local session and joining in.

General Game Additions:
200 vs 200 battles can be fought.
8 different playable factions are available. Other playable factions may be added if we get permission to use the models.
Random Time of Day and Weather can be enabled.
Drowning has been implemented.
Stray horses are removed after 30 seconds.
Random Desert, Desert Forest, Snow Forest and Forest maps are now available.
Elite units spawn for each faction.

For Battle Mode:
Adaptive battles - when "Battle" mode is chosen, the losing side gains half the amount of attackers still alive at the end of the round. For example, the server starts with each faction having 20 units each. Faction 1 wins the first round with 12 survivors. Round two starts with faction 1 having 20 units and faction 2 having 26 units. This will grow unit the limit of 200 units is reached for a faction. This feature creates balance with the various factions.
You can adjust the adaptive battle maximum team size if your system can not handle 200v200.
Teams switch sides each round.
Units will lose morale (when enabled) and run from the battlefield if their team is losing. Human player proximity to the AI Units restores morale.
All units are controllable by class using basic formation commands. Every human player will have units to command (or not).

For Siege:
A Helms Deep Siege map has been added.
All siege walk meshes have been corrected so the AIs can put up a good fight to defend the castle.
The AI can now effectively attack the castle without a human directing them.
The attacking AI will raise ladders, bust down doors, push the siege towers and capture the flag. This is a new AI pathing system that has been introduced.
The defending AI have not been altered at this time. This will be a future addition.
The AI for attackers and defenders will spawn in slowly. They will not spontaneously spawn and respawn. Defender AI spawn in more slowly as the round time decreases.
Humans will spawn in 10 seconds regardless of team.
Siege mode seems to work best with teams of 30v30 or 40v40. Fire up a session, pick a castle and watch in spectator mode to see (and appreciate) the AI pathing in action. Join in and attack or defend the castle. Some of the castles are more challenging than others. It is not perfect but we will continue to add to this.
Horses are disabled for siege mode.

For DM and TDM:
2 New Arena Maps have been added.
A map called "Concept Arena" has been added. This is an experimental map for DM and TDM. The physics are not perfect but this map introduces some interesting concepts that can be expanded upon. We may work more on this in future releases.

Sample dedicated server text files are included in the DedicatedServerFiles directory.

This BattlesMod version is for M&B Warband v1154. The BattlesMod version is v1005.
To install, extract the "BattlesMod" directory to the \mountblade warband\Modules directory.

200 vs 200 battles can be fought.
11 different factions are available.
Adaptive battles - when "Battle" mode is chosen, the losing side gains the amount of attackers still alive at the end of the round. For example, the server starts with each faction having 20 units each. Faction 1 wins the first round with 12 survivors. Round two starts with faction 1 having 20 units and faction 2 having 32 units. This will grow unit the limit of 200 units is reached for a faction. This feature creates balance with the various factions.
Drowning has been implemented.
Stray horses are removed after 30 seconds.
This mod encourages using AIs and so having over a hundred AIs on each team would generate tons of casualty messages which become extremely distracting and noisy. This mod will only display casualty reports for human players. If the kill involves a human player, then the message is displayed.
2 Arena Maps have been added for TDM and DM.
All siege walk meshes have been corrected so the AIs can put up a good fight to defend the castle. The AI can not effectively attack the castle without at least one human directing them. They can defend with no humans on the defenders team.
In "Siege" mode, the AI for attackers and defenders will trickle in. They will not spontaneously spawn and respawn. Humans will spawn in 10 seconds regardless of team.
A Helms Deep Siege map has been added.
Random Desert, Desert Forest, Snow Forest and Forest maps are now available.
Sample dedicated server text files are included in the DedicatedServerFiles directory.

Hi, I downloaded this and then (using 7zip) extracted it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MountBlade Warband\Modules
But when i launch m&b it doesn't come up as any of the modules? Do I need to go through native?
Thanks.

does the AI fight better in general than original warband?

That depends on what you mean by "better".

The AI will use ladders and siege towers to attack the castles in siege mode. You (and other human players if you want) can join the defending team and the AI will fight to capture the fortress.

In Battle mode, the losing side will gain more units for the next round, thus winning three rounds in a row can be challenging.

As far as striking better or blocking better, not really. These are game engine items that are not altered.

Thank you for your interest.

Can this be used over other mods? Such as Full Invasion 2?

Meaning, will this also inprove the AI in that mod as well? Or is this only a mod by itself?

Thanks in advance.

It's modguys's mod stand alone and I too am jelly of that improved AI:
A Ithilien Ranger snipes an enemy on the ground from the castle walls and save me from death in battle, wow.

No. This mod is stand alone. A mod by itself.

I dont see two new castles. :/

Poison apples are used by the Shaman unit in the Barbarian faction. The Grod unit is also an elite of the Barbarian faction. Start a Siege with 40 vs. 40 AI with the Barbarian as one of the factions. You should see the Shaman and Grod spawn. This also works for Battle Mode.
The two new castles should be in the list when starting a Siege Multiplayer game. You should have the v1004 installed first and the v1005 over the top. Let me know if you are still not seeing these castles.
