Native gameplay, within the Calradia setting, with a strong emphasis for improving convenience, gameplay and adding new options (such as quests) to the overall M&B: Warband experience. Any version of M&B warband from 1.153 to 1.158 will work, but the mod requires the use of the Warband Script Enhancer v3.1.5 which is included in the download.
Here you can see an example of what is possible with the Pre-Battle Orders & Deployment mod in combination with the Formations v3 mod. A paused deployment phase exists allowing me to setup my crossbowmen in neat ranks, with pavise shields deployed and firing in a coordinated fashion. Infantry are then setup into ranks with a shield wall in front. Pikemen are arrayed in front of them with spears braced.
