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

etc

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.

i reckon one issue is the blatant fanboyism u see whenever anyone asks about a release date or how much of teh mod is completed. The amounts of times I've had to read "he doesn't owe you anything..." is ridiculous. I think it's reasonable to ask how a mod that was plausibly ready for release by the end of 2013 can't have a rough estimation of how much work has been done on it

just to clarify i really appreciate the work done by Docm, however, i don't think it is unreasonable to ask about how much of the mod is complete

I agree with you good sir, i'm a little worried this might be a con, just wanting peoples money. But i have hope, some actual...updates would be nice to have, instead of "Here is some uniform!" no offense but, a lot of them are starting to look the same here. but there are those that take years upon years to make, i hope he can make it, but don't go all Valve on us man

Yes, those few donations he's gotten was surely worth the massive work on all those new props, models, scripting etc. Get your ******* head out of your ***.

No need to get angry, a lot of people out there are idiots and jerks when it comes to asking for money (Kickstarter has the biggest amount of them) i was not saying he IS conning people, i am just kind of worried that he is, i am really excited about the mod and i really like his work. i know modding is one of the hardest programming jobs out there (next to actually making a game) i was just voicing a tiny fear i have about this mod. I've been let down by mods before, weather they call dead or are just poor quality (not to mention that old Jedi Academy mod, can't remember the name but it was released many many years after his first release date if i remember correctly, and a TON of people paid for that) this guy is working hard on something difficult i know, that was just a tiny fear.

guys Docm30 is still working this mod. he's just rarely (or never) update this page. he still answer comments in Taleworlds forum. just want to say this, mod development is risky, you're basically developing a new module of a game yet you can't force anyone to pay but on the other hand, once your mod is completed, it can be a plus when you try to enter the industry

here's the link, last comment from him was on Feb 26

Yeah right, im just telling that maybe doc is too much stress and he will change his mind and release it, and forget the big surprise but i hope not. i'm sure doc is also hungry on releasing this mod but i can feel that he has a big surprise to us all. and i also felt good because l'aigle is now 2nd pop mod great job, and i hope it will raise more, cuz i hate it when i see a good mod and just turn down... keep it up guys :D hehe
