Mount and Musket Battalion is a multi-player total conversion that tries to accurately represent the time period around the end of the Napoleonic Wars (1812-1815). It has historical factions with accurate units and equipment, including different types of infantry, cavalry and even usable artillery.
Mount and Musket is and epic mod. This is caused by a lot of Facts i now want to Mention here:
1. Very active Community
There are a lot of clans (~10), which is pretty amazing for a Mod like this. Furthermore there is always a public linebattle on Monday.
2. Very activ Modders:
The modders are really trying to fast fix Problems they have in the Game. Also they accept Critism and Suggestions what to Change in the Game. Release cycle is atm like every 2 weeks
3. Very Detailed
The Graphic are very Detailed, and everything is historicall correct, so its a lot of fun to play and you can really reanact past times
4. Large Unit Variety
There are a 3 Kinds of Units: Cavalary, Artillery and Infantery:
Infantery has 5 regiments on every Nation (3 atm [Prussian, France, UK]), Cavalery has 3, Artillery 1. For every regiment there is a Ranker,Sergenant and Captain with different Weapon loadouts. Furthermore there is a "Super"-Commander like Napoleon, Blücher or Welligton.
Thats why i think its the pest mod for Mount and Blade
I'm not sure what those guys giving this a bad review is on about, having played the other mods mentioned, i can positively say that the textures arn't any worse, most of the time they're better, and remember this is still in developement.... I also prefer the class picking system, it might seem a bit confusing at first, but just ask the people playing what the different guys get, and you'll know who you want to play quickly :)
Over all it's the best MP mod I've played :D
Maybe the best Warband modification.
Great models and textures. Great weapons. Good maps. Moders that respond to suggestion. Administrators that solves problems. Huge and growing community based on own 222 server.
Usualy have some problems after new patch start, which are solved in week.
Works in progress: more factions (in preWaterloo version there was about 10) and especially more options (Naval Battles, musicians, better artillery, ...)
