L'Aigle (The Eagle) is a singleplayer and multiplayer total-conversion mod for Mount & Blade: Warband set during the 1809 War of the Fifth Coalition fought between Napoleonic France and the Austrian Empire and their allies.
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
-Campaign for mastery of Europe on a massive and detailed map
-New hand-crafted battle scenes including Naval Battles
-Tournaments and Arenas redone to include shooting, fencing and prizefighting
-Earn fame and glory by capturing enemy standards and presenting them to your regent
-Military Depots where one can purchase weapons and uniforms or hire trained specialists
-Graphical overhaul including new horse, textures, effects and buildings
-Hundreds of new troops, with such famous regiments as the Old Guard, 95th Rifles and Polish Lancers
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.

New Steam claims to let me hide what I don't want, but I can't find the checkmarks for 'shovelware' and 'games that came out 25 years ago'.

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.

Turns out Ed Catmull is a dirtbag. I'll never use textures again.
