Anno 1493, almost forty

years have passed since the Duchy of Milan and the Republic of Venice agreed on the shaky peace of Lodi.
Now, with the invasion of the French king Charles VIII., This phase of prosperity seems to end with a hammer blow.
Doubtful claims on Naples and the Duchy of Milan led him and his many soldiers on the peninsula.
But he is not the only one who casts covetous eyes on the richness of Italy.
Although the Republic of Venice loses ground against the Ottomans in the Aegean Sea, they gain new possessions but at the expense of the emperor in the north.
He is just concerned about securing his Burgundian inheritance, must now also march to the south, if he wants to preserve the imperial authority.
At the other end of the boot, Sicily and large parts of southern Italy are under Spanish rule, which competes with the corrupt popes for power and land.
Located in the misery the Duke of Milan has actually lost the battle, it seems that his opponents are too strong. His only hope seems to be the dreaded Swiss mercenaries.
But they seem to have their own plans and won't miss their change to prove their power.
On the edge is the Hungarian Kingdom that arms itself against the onslaught of the Ottomans.

Battle of Pavia

News 5 comments
User Posted Image


24 February 1525 was the decisive battle during the wars of 1521-26.

The Battle of Pavia

An Imperial–Spanish army under the nominal command of Charles de Lannoy (and working in conjunction with the garrison of Pavia, commanded by Antonio de Leyva) attacked the French army under the personal command of Francis I of France in the great hunting preserve of Mirabello outside the city walls. In the four-hour battle, the French army was split and defeated in detail. The French suffered massive casualties, including many of the chief nobles of France. Francis himself was captured by Habsburg troops and imprisoned by Charles V and forced to sign the humiliating Treaty of Madrid, surrendering significant territory to his captor. The outcome of the battle cemented Habsburg ascendancy in Italy.

I get a crash to desktop everytime I sally out of a fort. Otherwise had no crashes so far and I love the mod. I'm playing as the Ottomans and I really like the textures. Sipahi horse archers are badass and Akinjis clothes are really colorful. I'm playing 4.1 btw.

The fort in question is the one between Fiume and Buhac in Croatia. I have 3 units of akinjis charging out to skirmish an Italian cavalry and 3 units of spears/spikes. and the crash happens when they cross the trenches. My Logs folder is empty so idk how to send my logs.

P.S. It's awesome that the loading screens are in german, I get to learn a bit (esp. since I can associate some to those I see in Stainless Steel) I'm pretty sure I'm butchering the pronunciation but I try lol.

Hmm.. I fear you have to stage the battle automatically...
It seems the position of the fort is not valid. Thank's for the hint! It will be changed in the upcoming version.

Thank's for your praise! Have fun! :)

Are siege maps going to change? because flat walls rams and siege towers dont reflect this period in the slightest.

Well, editing the battle maps is not a fun job to do, you know. In case we have some time and motivation left, we'll certainly will look into it ;)

Neadal Im playing v 5.0 and the game crashes in between turn 12 and 13 somewhere between swabia and rebels turn. I tried going to a previous save but when I get to turn 12 same thing happens. Im playing as Florence. Im so frustrated right now because this game is awesome. Thanks

I would need the log file to narrow it down. The log file can be found under ..\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\logs depending on if you using steam or not.
Nevertheless, I'd really recommend to play 4.0 and its patch 4.1. This version is much more stable.
Glad you like our mod!
