Today we'll be taking a look at the Paris scene from the mod. This is one of the largest and most complex scenes in the mod (and I suspect it rivals the most complex from any Warband mod). Though it's not entirely finished and fully populated with props and buildings, I think it's well worth seeing at this point.
It's centred in the Place du Carrousel, where you'll see the Palais de Tuileries, one of the oldest and most important palaces in France and the chief Imperial Palace of Napoleon's. South of the Tuileries is the old Pavillon de Flore, where the Louvre's grand gallery is held. North is the Pavillon Marsen, which was still under construction in 1809. Both Pavillons have since been heavily remodelled and now bare little resemblance to their Napoleonic era selves. The Tuileries itself was burned down by anarchists in 1871 during the chaos that engulfed France at the collapse of the Second Empire. The fire-gutted skeleton remained for 12 years before it was finally torn down.
The only structure in the scene that still remains unchanged (save for the remaking of the technically stolen quadriga in 1815) is the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, the smaller cousin of the more famous Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile.
Again, do bear in mind this is a work in progress.
That's all for now. Enjoy.
As always, thanks for reading and showing your support for the mod.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like L'Aigle. We love games like Mount & Blade: Warband that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
