So, as I mentioned, the new version (5.2) is well in the works. Started with 5.1 as base and with HootMan's improvements(new scenes, edits, textures and what-not), I took it from there adding a variety of items, adding troops, re-balancing others and adding an encyclopedia feature, with many interesting things about Vikings and their life(you can send me whatever topic you want featured, I will add it provided there is information about it). Now, I need help with a research part. Namely, I am reworking the map and while there had been a lot of comments about the lack of accuracy in settlement names, there are few, if any pointing the correct names. In the past, Teofish and Urgrevlings, good friends from Taleworlds Forums helped me with many settlement names. But there are a LOT more I am in need of info about.It would be a tremendous help, if someone would like to help in that regard.

Thanks! :)

this still needs some tweaking, dialogues for companions are all wrong when they complain about the name of someone they dislike, alot of typos as well and there are cases when someone who is male is refered to as a "she" rather than a "he"

Great Mod. But i have a request. For 5.1, or 5.5, or heck even 6.0 can you add in A new Frankish Kingdom which starts off with lots of wealth in Hamburg. I think it would be interesting to see the Vikings actually raid foreigners.
Give the franks great armor and weaponry similar to viking conquests Frankish horseman have if possible.
It would add another dynamic to the mod.
Another idea for a new faction would be a native faction inhabiting the area around Russia and Belarus and then a Viking faction with only one settlement 'Holmgaurd' under the command of Rurik. This will represent the vikings colonising and creating the Rus.
