Note that this mod is in early alpha and may contain problems, a lack of content, bugs and unpolished areas. Bear this in mind.

The mod is once again accepting donations. Donations will help allow me to work on the mod more and to buy things like sounds and textures to improve the quality of the mod even further. Thanks!

In spite of my being incredibly busy, I've managed to put together a smallish update to fix some of the remaining issues that need sorting out before major additions come. This is a full release, not a patch, so make sure to delete the previous version before installing it.

The mod has also been uploaded to the Steam Workshop. It may be preferable to get it from the workshop since it will likely be updated more frequency, with the manual download version getting only the occasional larger update.

Changes include:
- Added several new battle scenes
- Added Parrot's map icons
- Added new animations
- Added phased reloading
- Added some new sounds
- Fixed some animation bugs
- Fix some troop stats
- Rebalanced items
- Fixed problems with bandits in certain scenes
- Several other small changes an fixes

And here's the latest trailer again for those that need refreshing:

Simple question. Will there be grenades and if so will certain grenadeers have them?

no. grenades were a thing of the past in napoleonic wars.
they were innefective and very un-reliable. they
tended to explode in the hands of the throwers.

I do not have many problems with this mod, although there is one small thing that always seems to bother me: Swords that still show in their scabbards even if you have them in your hand. Otherwise, I think the mod is quite good and the only thing it quite needs is musicians and maybe some more troops. Overall I think the mod is very good, at least for an alpha

Hello Docm30. Currently I have been playing L'Aigle for about 80+ hours. I have a request for you, I have noticed a bug with the British army. Whether in rain or out of rain they wear there trench coats. Meaning even in the sun in the middle of the desert they still wear trench coats. I am not saying one unit but all the units in the British army. No matter where you are on the map, they wear there trench coats. It really bugs me, I really love the British troops. I just wish they would wear there original outfit. Not the trench coats 24/7 whether warm, cold, raining, misty, foggy, or even out on sea. The cavalry are fine, same with one unit of the British forces, the scottish or irish troop class. But I'd love it to death if you'd get rid of trench coats for the British. It would complete me. I am dying of seeing just trench coats. One more thing can you make it so theres 4 or 5 cannons you may own? I think itd be better with a 100+ army. Thanks for taking the time too read this. -SirRobinHood.

Okay, I finally feel confident to place a review about this mod as I played it for more than 400 hours for sure. Okay let me tell you something, this mod.. Oh boy it's amazing, like it really is, all field battles are great, textures are awesome, map and everything else is also amazing. For alpha version it's very playable. Okay, the mod itself has a great potential but it's still not there yet... First of all, most of siege battles like when you want to take a town are glitched if you ask me. There are even some situations where buildings are in air and basically you have to give up a fight because you can't kill the enemy. Second of all sometimes enemy troops are spawned somewhere where you can't get your troops (really killing the fun). Also I find really frustrating when i get to battle in middle of the map far away from sea, I get spawned on ship and all my cavalry is mounted on horses and glitched.. there are also other bugs but those are not so "big deal" bugs. ANyways don't get me wrong, mod is amazing and you should deffinetly download it and play it but you'll get frustrated at some times... Also if you want to win all battles just get yourself french cavalry, it's OP and that should be fixed too. Anyways when I look all together I'd give 6.7/10 to this mod. If you ask me why I'd give that grade well it's easy. Mod would be clear 10/10 if all those bugs that are affecting the gameplay would be fixed. This is an amazing alpha version mod and it's expected to have bugs. I hope creator will see this and I hope he'll understand how much I admire his work and my critics are only here to help him fix the greater bugs if he's not aware of them. ANd last thing, @Docm30 You are doing amazing job, just fix the bugs ASAP.

First of all, thank you for the response. It's really nice when you see creator actually reading people's opinions etc. Okay, today I tried re-downloading patches and installing them again, started new game and everything again. I played like 3-4 hours and I finally managed to make myself some nice army and sadly but first thing I found flying fortress again and second thing I found random ship battles far away from sea and ofcourse cavalry mounted on ships. Do not get me wrong, I really love the mod, it's amazing, I'm just saying, those 2 things should be fixed, they are really annoying. If they will be fixed soon, I don't see any other big problem that would affect the gameplay.

So, I downloaded the patch, moved it to warband modules and placed it in l'aigle folder. I extracted it there and replaced all previous files.
