Straight to the point. After years of hard-work L'Aigle finally has a release. This is a singleplayer only open alpha for the time being and it is admittedly rough around the edges. Please bear the following things in mind:

It is a very early alpha and lacks items and various content, it has tons of repeated scenes, it has native quests and features, it has a general lack of polish and so forth. Please remember it's the very first version and thus very rough. Over the coming months the mod will get new items, new quests, new scenes, new features and much more.

L'Aigle Singleplayer Open Alpha 1.0

If you're not familiar with the mod or need a refresher, here is our latest trailer again:

The mod should be available from the 'downloads' section of this profile or one of the various mirrors that are going up soon. I'll update this news post as they are added.

Please read the description on the file and the read me contained within the .rar. I hope you enjoy the mod and I hope it gives you a taste of what's to come in the future.

I have some questions regarding armies and promotions.

1) How do you get promoted without buying a commission? I slaughtered lots of enemies but still not eligible for promotion.

2) Can i use lances? I can't buy them anywhere and if i kill lancer, i can't take his lance.

I need some help with artillery.

#1: All crews are French. Whenever I go to a military depot and recruit a 12-pounder and crew, the crew is French. I am really not bothered but is this normal?

#2: My artillery crews aren't firing the cannon. The crew reloadm and the operator starts aiming the cannon but it never fires, but I've seen videos where people have fired them or encountered enemies who fire them.

#3: I've never encountered enemy artillery. Are there specific circumstances where they appear?

I know that this mod is in alpha, so I'm sorry to sound like such an arse. Believe me this mod is actually my favourite Warband mod to date and it clearly has a lot of effort behind it too, but I feel like I'm missing something.

Keep up the good work though, with some patches this mod could easily be my all time favourite mod.

Only one word is needed to describe this mod. Amazing!
It is truly an amazing mod.
But I have an... Idea/ hope suggestion. I would LOVE if you guys could add Denmark to this mod. (With black uniforms I.imgur.com)
In my opinion it is the coolest soldier uniform.

That uniform has nothing to do with the Napoleonic Era. It is from the 2nd Schleswig War in 1864. We wore red (among other colours) in the time that the mod is set in.

I know we was wearing the red uniform. But there is a reason that, this red uniform got replaced. A red uniform with a big white cross on it...(No camouflage and one big target) This was also just a suggestion.
And you are correct again about the second Schleswig war. I'm just kinda hoping that they will just look, at it. And think about it. (Personally opinion: I love that black uniform)

I know I have to wait? I was just suggesting. And if you read my suggestion I never mention that Denmark should be made before Spain, Sweden or the Ottoman Empire. I just asked if they could add Denmark.
