Calradian Crusaders v2.3

Calradian Crusaders v2.3 is released, all bugs and annoyances are fixed, nice new features, new equipment and troops overhaul. This mod is not in development for the time being since it's already how I idealized it when started making it so I feel is finished and I'm currently only working on my new mod Sands of Faith (try it if you liked this one, it has even more features although a very different concept and gameplay).

For anyone interested you can find the SOURCE CODE in nexusmods.
