'The Deluge' is a multiplayer mod set in 17th century Europe. It offers historically accurate factions, troops and equipment, many improvements to gameplay and tactics, tons of new models/textures, a lot of unique features (eg. animated flora and banners, working cannons, boats and ferries, building defences) and much, much more...
Well, I've been supporting the Deluge for the past three years even through the emptiness and void that is a non-updated game.
Finally, the 0.8 update arrived for all to see. Simply put, this is the premier Warband MP module available. Chock full of new features that work pretty damn wonderfully, fantastic support from the developers and a rich vibrant community. If you're looking for Pike & Shotte - this is the place to be.
This mod contains, improves, and adds on many features that add a whole new level of strategies tactics and a completely new type of battle.
The cannons on ships in Deluge work adding a whole new level of complexity to naval engagements. Now players are free to blow their enemies out of the water,or board the enemy ships and lay waste to the crew with cutlasses.
Improved Engineering system:
The New engineering system is less cartoon y, and requires actually building materials built on to the map. this makes it impossible to make troll towers and other impossible structures.
The time period deluge takes place in allows for mend armed with bows shields and swords to fight men armed with modern muskets. The sheer variety of troop types and weapons gives each faction its own identity while still maintaining game balance in most cases.
This mod is brilliant and i can't wait for line battles to start.
