The mod will feature the following, among others:

-Several detailed factions, incl. France, Britain, Austria, Russia, Prussia, Spain, Italy, Holland and Warsaw.
-Battle Formations, including anti-cavalry square
-Military ranks earned in battle or purchased by commission
-Hundreds of thoroughly-researched and historically-accurate uniforms and weapons

We are now accepting donations of any amount to help support the the development of the mod.
This is completely optional and the mod is and always will be 100% free.

If you choose to donate to the mod's development, the money raised will be used to offset the cost of software, hardware, web hosting and caffeine, ect, purchased to create the mod. Donators will be rewarded with their name added to the credits in the mod (Make sure to PM Docm30 here or on the Taleworld forums with the name you want credited and details of your donation), and a sense of superiority over non-donators, who you are free to consider heathens.

Today we'll take a quick look at the London scene in the mod, but first a short note on the mod's progress.

To put it simply: progress is slow. I find myself with little (and increasingly less) free time to work on the mod. When I can't find the free time necessary to work on the mod progress simply doesn't happen. I can again assure you that no one wants the mod released more than I do, but it's not easy getting it to that point. You'll have to bear with me.

Now, a look at the London scene, which is set in Whitehall (which is technically in Westminster, but let's not be pedantic). In the scene you'll find some of the most famous buildings and areas in London, including Horse Guards, Downing Street, Scotland Yard and the Banqueting House of the old Palace of Whitehall.

It should be noted that the scene is a work in progress and as such still needs some smaller details.

Thanks for reading.

do not waste time adding factions that are not in napoleonic wars. The factions that are in europe are far from enough......... If u want to create more factions leave that for later, and make it a different download so that people who might not want to have eastern factions or america will not have them....

Mann, that mod is too single player. You think that half of Europe should be grayed out ?

is it possible to release sort of a demo thing? Just to explore a small town or something to know what we expect from the mod. Sort of something similar to Kingdom Come Deliverence?

Planned Factions:
French Empire
Austrian Empire
United Kingdom
Russian Empire
Kingdom of Prussia
Confederation of the Rhine
Duchy of Warsaw
Kingdom of Holland
Kingdom of Italy
Kingdom of Naples
Swiss Confederation
Kingdom of Spain (Bonapartist)
Supreme Junta (Spanish Rebels)
Kingdom of Portugal
Kingdom of Sweden
Ottoman Empire
Serb Rebels
Tyrolean Rebels
Some of these are said to be planned later

These are written on the Taleworlds Development thread

Anyways, as 'sifis172' said, it looks as if it will go as far as Turkey (Ottoman Empire) but maybe Doc will decide to add more eastern factions later on. (Personally I think it would be a bit wasteful as kingdoms/factions in the East weren't involved in the Napoleonic Wars and kind of ruins the idea of a Napoleonic Wars Mod.)
However, although I did say that it should only involve Europe, I counter that idea and personally like the idea of including North America (Maybe Mexico as well) as America had just become a rich and quite powerful country. Furthermore, they were at war with Britain and Canada in 1812.
Lets see what you guys think :)

i think that the mamelukes could be in the mod.
after all there were 2 campaigns that took place there.
the french invasion, and the british
invation trying to kick the french out.

it would be cool if north amer. wwere in it too, although
it's not a part of napoleonics, after all the war started on 1812,
(the mod is in 1809).
Haiti would be an option as the french invaded and were beaten
by the haitian revolutionaires.

Apparently we can animate scene props now. That could be very useful.

It's the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War and yet no one seems to care.
