Mod Description

This mod is a union of most of the mods on Knights of Honor. It's compiled by Gazatus but includes many many features done by other modders. Even if this pack is the sum of a lot of sleepless night and hard work, you can still feel the vanilla game experience or get a entire new game. Indeed an installer is here to help you customising your game without any compatibility issue or modding knowledge. Just Plug and Play ! Available in English, French and German !

Users review :

Some truly excellent work has been put into this mod. The last edition has put on the finishing touches of this beautiful and thorough HD remake of a classic medieval strategy game. Without completely shaking the foundations of the original, this mod has in my view made the game into what it was always supposed to be, and has brought fresh new life into the game so that new players will surely enjoy this classic. This is an excellent example of modding done right, perhaps even at its best.

  • Sounds :

[Ultimate Edition - Default] + Add 48 mins of lorefriendly music (selected by Gazatus - from various artist in public domain)

  • Content :

It's splited in 2 parts :

  1. Economy Tweaks. The Ultimate Edition installer provides you the choice between 3 mods for Economy : Ultimate Mod which aims at making the game a bit easier in early game but harder in late game ; Menssie's Economy Expansion which aims being closer to original game but adding new trade goods and creates more strategic town development by adding more delicate buildings ; and Dusk Of Glory Director Cuts which provides the most "stock" feeling, it's adding many balanced buildings without any powerful bonuses or difficulty tweaks.
  2. Military Tweaks. You can choose between 2 mods : Ultimate Mod which is based on History and difficulty/cost ; Menssie's Military Expansion which focus on country's special units (no change on cost or bonus)

I suggest using Ultimate Mod - Economy & Military. I've listed below everything that you might need to know :

First Part : Economy

The Ultimate Mod Economy includes Dusk of Glory 1.8 FINAL. It's 31 new buildings and 47 building upgrades by Feillyne and includes many unique tweaks by Gazatus :

  1. Complete economy rework - early game is less anoying. Late game is harder. Many building bonuses have been completly re-edited.
  2. Cutted content have been restored (new quests,new units and enhanced weakness, cost, kingdom flags and map border have been reworked)
  3. Boost IA for city creation - now AI will be balanced between economy and military buildings
  4. Rework quest system - for now there are 32 quests (list here)
  5. Morale, religion and happiness updated to be less trivial
  6. Marshal cost have been complety balanced, it costs a lot to have many marshal. It's now interresting to have a builder or a farmer - cost almost nothing and provides good bonus.


Menssie's Economy Expansion includes Dusk of Glory 1.8 FINAL too and it includes many features created by Menssie, such as :

  1. Add 50 new buildings and upgrades
  2. Add 4 new trade goods
  3. Add 1 new exotic good
  4. Create 1 new asset
  5. Tweaked Economy and buildings cost/bonus
  6. Education and Knight cost a bit lower than original game

Civilian buildings

Dusk Of Glory Director Cuts includes Dusk of Glory 1.8 FINAL but remove every powerful structure which give a more "stock" feeling. No other tweaks have been included. Created by Feillyne

Second Part : Military

The Ultimate Mod includes :

  1. Squad size balancing - no more x30 soldier for every units squad. Horseman have been reworked to form better assault.
  2. Squad size multiplier : 2x ; 4x or 10x
  3. Overhaul units weakness and bonus - Spearman have a morale bosus vs horseman, a the opposite horseman get easily killed by hallebard... Armor and Knights bonus is more effective. It's hard to kill a heavily armored solider now.
  4. Morale overhauled - you can now have a game changer tactics such as focus low moral units, others will follow who retreats.
  5. Add 4 new units - turkic units, cuman rider, war elephant, Druzhina (russian units)
  6. Units are easier to make, AI will more often use elite units and will invade with more knights.
  7. Realistic Crusade (LOT of units and Commander AI reworked to conquer faster and longer. It's a real challenge now.) BUG - Sometimes you will get your marshal stuck in crusade mode, just lose a battle to restore.
  8. No change on country special units


Units Overhaul

Morale and Commander Impact

Menssie's Military Expansion includes :

  1. Based on country special units. Many units are now "unique".
  2. Squad size multiplier : 2x ; 5x or 10x
  3. Changed requirements for some units
  4. Historicaly more accurate with Western Units (Cuman, slav..)
  5. Add 5 new units (Turkic units, Cuman Rider, Hospitalier and units from a Crusader Order)


For more detailed list of changes see changelog.

  • Other :

There is a Hardcore Mod which is a multiplier of the AI gold income and an AI behavior redraw, it changes EASY / NORMAL and HARD Mode, please install this with caution, it's not fully tested and maybe unplayable !

Easy : AI get 500% Gold and is more aggressive than in regular hard - Much more Economy and Military check.
Normal : AI get 1000% gold and now create more elite units and use more fortified camp
Hard(core) : AI get 2000% gold and will make your life end.

I have a problem, when I uninstall KoH, remove the KoH folder from steam and uninstall the mod, the mod is still installed when I install KoH again, and now I can't get the game go true fullscreen. When I try to install the mod it says that the mod is already installed. O.o I've tried everything, cleaning the registry with CCleaner and all. I have Windows 10 Home, 64 bit version. I even reinstalled steam and the problem persists. It's like the mod can't be removed no matter what...O.o

Hi, sorry for this trouble, you can remove the registry key by launching regedit (windows + R) > regedit > enter. Then under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Black Sea Studios

AND : SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{C99CC88B-84C2-4F4F-A050-5A97CF4F5141}_is1

Works perfectly fine for me in windowed mode (which, as it is a decorated window, means that part of the screen is cut off in 1920x1080p resolution). However, for some reason trying to run it in fullscreen just shows a quick black screen before Windows 7 Ultimate (no relation ;-)) automatically focuses back on the previous window. I've also configured XP SP2 compatibility and DPI scaling. As the audio subsystem "blips" the game's music, it's clear the game is running, but the graphics are being jerked around somehow. This occurs even after I've deleted my user profile from %appdata% also.

[edit] Oop, looks like a reboot solved it! It's still a bit finicky but it seems fine now.
