TECHNICAL INFO:
This is Balkan 2: Revolution Started is a Mount and Blade: Warband mod set during the revolutions and rebellions in the Balkans in the 1820's. It is based on the Calradia Imperial age mod. We are very thankful to them, because they allowed us to use it.


DESCRIPTION:
Welcome, traveler, to the turbulent land of the Balkan Peninsula. Here, in the shadows and passes of the Dinaric Alps, the valleys of the Danube and the mountains of the Peloponnese - war has been a part of everyday life for hundreds of years. Nations, cultures and religions have been clashing here since before our fathers' fathers can remember. The old Ottoman and Austrian empires currently struggle to keep the order within their borders, while the fires of independence are once again burning brightly in the hearts of Greeks, Romanians, Albanians, Bosnians, Serbs and Croats. Bloody insurrections and rebellions have resulted in independence or autonomy for some of these nations, while others are still fighting, or otherwise biding their time, waiting for a chance.
Arriving on the shores of the Adriatic, and setting foot in this land full of danger and opportunity, you decide to...


Take a river ferry to Belgrade, in the Principality of Serbia:
Approaching the spot where the Danube meets the Sava, you catch the sight of the walls and towers of the Belgrade fortress on a ridge above the city. The ferry captain tells you it is called „Kalemegdan fort“ by the locals. The banners of Prince Miloš Obrenović are fluttering in the morning breeze. Even though the new Prince initially made Kragujevac further south his capital, you immediately understand that this is the actual heart of the newly independent Serbian state. Once you set foot in the town, you notice many testaments of the town's Ottoman past, like the many Minaret towers piercing the skies. It is obvious that the city has only recently been liberated from the Ottomans and its future, you can sense, is yet unclear.
The ferry captain accompanies you in a tour of the city streets, and he tells you about the First and Second Serbian uprisings, led by Đorđe Petrović - Karađorđe and Miloš Obrenović respectively. How the latter arranged the assassination of the former after successfully establishing his rule and Serbia's independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1817.
Immersed in conversation, you didn't even notice when you strayed from the city center, and after a while you hear a strange sound that sends shivers down your spine.


Principality of Wallachia and Principality of Moldavia
They are already the autonomus Principalities of the Ottoman Empire but it seems they are trying to rebel against them and unificate.


Ride in with an Albanian hunting party to the Pashalik of Joannina
You reach the shores of lake Pamvotis, in the Ottoman controlled region of Epirus. Here stands the city of Ioannina, the seat of the Albanian lord Ali Pasha of Tepelena. On the very peak of the western shoreline stands the Fehtiye mosque, its minaret dominating the view from the lake, the scene completed by the snow-capped Mitsikeli mountains in the background. The beautiful scenery is in contrast with the reputation of the rebellious lord of this city. Ali Pasha is described by his enemies as a ruthless and uncontrollable bandit, who is out of the Ottoman empire's reach and rules as an independent ruler. Yet, from what you hear in the streets, Ali Pasha is not simply a brainless looter. Indeed, he has designs on liberating the entire Albanian people, and even joining forces with the rebellious Greeks who are once again clamoring for independence.
Walking among the streets, you notice that there are twice as many Orthodox churches as there are mosques in the city, but the Greek majority is frightened to speak ill of their Albanian master. When you find yourself in an entirely Greek neighborhood, however, they start cursing at you, mistaking you for a spy of Ali Pasha. You attempt to back away, but it seems it's too late, you are going to have to defend yourself.


Hellenic Kingdom
Antic civilization which have fallen into the muslim conquerors hands. Know they are here to bring back its Ancient glory and make their county independent.


Take a carriage to Zagreb, in the Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia

You follow the river Sava until you reach the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain. The high tower of the Zagreb cathedral is visible from a distance as you approach the steep terrain on which the town is located. The upper town of Gradec is situated opposite the clerical settlement called Kaptol, which includes the cathedral and a seminary. Underneath Gradec is a long street made up of two rows of houses, called Ilica, which ends in a large square. Together, these settlements have merged to form the city of Zagreb. As you make your way through the Stone Gate and onto the streets of the upper town, you hear a group of young men discussing politics.
(…)


Join and walk with a donkey caravan heading to Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia
You arrive in the narrow valley of the Miljacka river, surrounded by several mountains and hills. Here, in the heart of Bosnia, lies the old city of Sarajevo. Even though you were told it was almost completely destroyed by Austrian troops over a hundred years ago, the city looks more alive than anything you have ever seen. Crowded neighborhoods, called Mahalas, encompass both banks of the Miljacka, connected by several stone bridges. You can see two castles on the hills above the city - the locals tell you that they are called “Bijela tabija“ and “Žuta tabija“, meaning “White castle &Yellow castle”. The people seem friendly and relaxed, but all is not peaceful in Bosnia. The Ottoman Sultan has recently granted autonomy to the rebellious Orthodox Serbs across the Drina. What’s worse, he has even granted them some of the land which used to belong to the Eyalet of Bosnia. The Bosnian beys are furious, and insurrection seems inevitable.
Tired from your journey, you walk to the main city square – the Baščaršija, and take a drink from the wooden fountain located there, which you are told is named “Sebilj”. Feeling quite refreshed, you stand up only to realize that the purse in which you kept all your money is gone, and you spot the thief running away in the direction of the river. You chase after him, and when he fails to lose you in the city’s mahalas, he turns around and walks toward you, weapon in hand.

Gentlemen!

I suppose that your move towards the Balkan region is more favourable since it is about early 19th century turmoil in Balkan region, not the entire Napoleonic era, though you must remember it is close related.

So, Gentlemen, I suppose that the Austrian and Ottoman empires are present?

Yes we are planning to focus the map just on balkan but counting the Habsburg monarchy and Anatolia, but we have some problems with map editor xD. If we fail we just gonna put bigger map of Europe.

When I read no Bulgaria, I died a little inside. I wanted so bad to play as a Bulgarian annihilating the Turks. At least make some Bulgarian peasants to be able to be recruited in Bulgarian territory as partisans please. We had a lot of mountain village mercenaries during that time. България над всичко!

Za sada ostaje na Engleskom . Prevod na univerzalni ex-YU (Bos. ,Srb. ,Hrv.,Slo.) bi nam oduzeo dosta vremena.

Ok so this is going to be a bit long, but that's only because I like this mod's potential and wanna see it become even better :D

I really like the idea and admire everything you've accomplished, and I hope you keep up the good work!
But it seems that historical accuracy isn't really the main focus here, which kinda ruins the whole ambient for me.

I don't mean accuracy related to weapons, uniforms etc. which I can see you are putting a lot of work into (and that's excellent), but basic historical and political facts. Like the obvious fact that in 1800 (which is the start date), neither Josip Jelačić nor Husein Gradašćević were even born yet. An independent Serbian principality didn't exist yet (the first Serbian uprising started in 1804). And the whole thing with the Triune kingdom being independent or even existing in 1800 is, well, you know... not really historically accurate. There are lots of other things as well but anyway.

So I'm wondering if these things are done on purpose,or are you going to make changes to make it more historically accurate? I love the idea of a mod set during Husein-beg's rebellion, or during the Serbian uprisings, or druring the revolutions of 1848. in which Josip Jelačić played an important role. The problem is that unfortunately these things didn't happen at the same time. So my suggestion would be to place the start date in the early 1830's. This way independent Bosnia under Husein and the Principality of Serbia under Miloš Obrenović are historically accurate and can remain unchanged. You woulkd have to remove Karađorđe though, as he is dead. In that period the Croatian ban was Ignac Gyulay (Ignjat Đulaj) or Franjo Vlašić (from 1832), and Josip Jelačić was a young military captain. So you can still make him a character in the game (maybe he even still had full hair at that time xD).

The biggest problem is with the triune kingdom (TKCDS). The fact was that it simply wasn't independent in any way, and neither ban Jelačić nor any other ban was the independent sovereign ruler of the land. If it's a kingdom then its ruler has to be a king, not a ban. Isn't that logical? And its king was the Austrian Habsburg who you have in the game. So yeah, I think in whichever period you place it, there is simply no reason for Croatia to be an independent faction (I'm a Croat, btw). So my suggestion would simply be to delete the faction, and place it under the Austrian Empire as is historically true, but keep the Croatian troops and lords/officers. This way the player can create a Croatian faction in the game if he is able enough :D

The reason I'm writing all this is because I think in historical mods, 100% historical accuracy is the most important thing to create a realistic ambient and the best world immersion and game experience. Otherwise we can simpy add every national hero from Tomislav to ban Kulin to Dušan the Mighty in a mod about the 19th century and enjoy our romantic nationalist fantasies.
So those are my suggestions, hopefully it's constructive.

Hello, yes mod has a lot of innacurrcies, and Pozdrav iz Jastrebarskog :D! Well date is changed to the 1825. Because theres not only focus on the Serbian and Bosnian, but Greek Bulgarian and Albanian uprisings too so i needed to put all in the "golden middle" I want to make the real accuracy but due the game mechanic..., Yes i know that Croatia wasnt independent but I puted it because of special troops of that period. And actually I planned to make more historicaly accurate by adding a campign mode but that is in future xD. Well ok for Croatia but need to figure out first how to implement the croatian troop tree to austrian xP. And btw this version what we currently making is only rebuilded version 1.0 beta.

Nadam se da ti ovo pomoglo. Žalim kaj ti neko vrijeme nebu bilo po čefu xD

Odg cu na hrvatskom onda :D
Da, kuzim dilemu sto se tice pocetne tocke, al stvar je u tome kaj m&b nije igra u kojoj se moze prikazat neki dulji povijesni period ili vise događaja, vec samo jedan povijesni trenutak. Igra baca igraca u odredeni trenutak, a on dalje oblikuje događaje.

Zato mislim da je najbolji pristup prvo odabrat tocno u dan kad igra pocinje, a onda sve podredit tome i sve napravit tocno kako je bilo u tom trenutku. Takav je princip u svim kvalitetnim povijesnim modovima, sto ovaj svakako moze bit :D

Ovako kad recimo pokusavas ubacit vise povijesnih likova ili vise tih pobuna u igru to ne moze nikad bit 100% povijesno tocno, kaj meni bar dosta kvari ugođaj. Recimo ako je početak 1825. onda striktno govoreci ne bi trebalo bit nezavisne Bosne, jer Husein Gradašćević se nije još pobunio nego će to učinit tek 6 godina kasnije. A Jelačić u tom trenutku ima 24 godine i čin običnog poručnika u austrijskoj vojsci, takoreći nitko i ništa :D, ban će postat tek 1848.

Al okej, to sam samo ja, valjda nisu svi takvi perfekcionisti pa im nece takve stvari smetat. Sigurno ce bit jako dobar mod svejedno.

Što se vojnika tiče, znam da može u jednoj fakciji bit više različitih troop tree-a, iako ne znam kako se to radi. Tako je npr u Europe 1200 modu. Tamo recimo imaš kraljevinu ugarsku ali u hrvatskim selima unutar te kraljevine imaš hrvatske vojnike, a u mađarskim mađarske.

Pozdrav drug ,izvini na kasnom replayu. Da sto se toga tice probat cemo nesto skontat,jer u biti to je fazon moda,da pokrije revolucije na teritoriju Balkana. Al za sada glavni cilj nam je da napravimo modele uniformi koji su historijski precizne.Kao reference koristimo vojne knjige ,muzejske eksponate i slicno.Poslije ovoga radimo na mapi.Kasnije sto se tice toga kod kodinga to cemo na kraju pokusat nesto izvost.
Lijep pozdrav :D

U redu, hvala na odgovoru! Također voljan sam pomoci ako vam treba netko još, nazalost ne znam puno o modiranju/kodiranju/modeliranju uopce (mada sam uvijek voljan učiti xD), ali mogu bar pisat opise ili dijaloge u igri kad se dođe do toga, pošto dobro znam engleski i nije mi strano pisanje dugih tekstova xD. Recimo ove trenutne informacije o modu pa opisi frakcija itd. tu na stranici, moglo bi se proširit i bolje napisat.

Nisam profesionalni povjesnicar, al mogu pomoc i opcenito u istrazivanju kolko je moguce :D

Tako da ako vam treba netko takvog opisa, tu sam
