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.

Sorry mate, but I got caught up by my RL so there was no progress at all during the last weeks/month. It is as unsatisfying at is for you, I am really sorry.
But no worries, I'll be back on track by August ;)

Neadal,sorry but I am kind of an idiot at all this. Can you please give me detailed installation instructions and all that file extracting stuff. I downloaded your mod when it first came out in English. but I had a problem and was forced to wipe my computer clean and cant recall how I did it. Really liked it and want to really play it again if I can get it downloaded with your help :)

No worries mate! A brief explanation: Italian Wars - Ultimate | Battle Beta, is the latest version with all the new factions, but you are only able to play custom and quick battles; The Italian Wars - 5.0 - Beta, is the latest 'playable' campaign version of our mod, but that one is quite buggy and I'd not recommend to play it; Die Italienischen Kriege - 4.0 and Patch 4.1 is the latest stable and most playable version, which I'd recommend to play.

Installation: Just download 4.0 and patch 4.1, run the installer of version 4.0, then 4.1 and everything should work properly. In case not, don't hesitate to contact me :)
Have fun!

I fear we just don't have enough manpower to add historical battles, too. We need to focus on the campaign.
