Wrath of the Norsemen is a modification of Medieval 2 Total War, set in the viking age. The aim is to create a mod that is both historical and enjoyable for anyone who has an interest in the early medieval era of history, or is just a little bit too fond of blood and big axes.

WotN covers the period AD 785 - 1050.

Faction List:
Danmaurk (Danish Vikings)
Gautlandi (Gautland Vikings)
Vestfold (Norwegian Vikings)
Sweþiuð (Swedish Vikings)
Hálogaland (Norwegian Vikings)
Kursi (Curonian Balts)
Häme (Tavastian Finns)
Garðariki (Novgorod Rus')

Vendland
Obotrite
The Franks

EDITED as of 2017-07/27 - Fixed issue with the Freyseyr settlement having mountainous terrain that made the real-time battles unplayable in that settlement, plus added historical names for Frankish cities.

- Now it's very much done in it's first version.

EDITED as of 2017-07/16 - Upload re-uploaded due to user Juzy90 at TWC contacting me and providing me with his work on traits and ancillaries for this mod. He mentioned he had been able to play over 100 turns in two campaigns with these changes - please report any bugs you may find in the game.

I have added his changes as well as removed some stuff i forgot to remove in the recent upload - like the music-folder.

In any case, i know of one bug that i can't fix and that is the Freyseyr-settlement - it has mountainous terrain that can't be clicked on. Neither the player nor the AI can move troops in that entire region on the battle-map but automatic battles work. - The only advice i can gve is to leave that area for the rebels and ignore it.

EDITED as of 2017-07/14 - upload of the new version re-uploaded like ten minutes ago! Everyone who downloaded the other version delete it and re-download this version - it fixes the faulthy bodyguards of the adopted family members for Kvenland and Rygjalandi.

This resulted in a silver surfer general for the Rygjalandi, and we wouldn't want riddarar-bodyguards for them - as well as a Huscarl bodyguard for the Kvens. These issues have been corrected like ten minutes ago so please re-download the mod.

Wrath of the Norsemen Beta 3.0!

Changes:

1. Fixes all the remaining silver surfer officers, captains and generals as well as any other remaining such bug.

2. Adds missing portraits for the two sami units, as well as some Frisian/Saxon merc new unit portraits:

3. Changes the names of the Frisian/Saxon mercenaries to more easily identify them as mercs.

4. Re-adds the vast music-mod from last year - but with heavily edited and cut music tracks this time

- It's also in use by TLK:WotN - but the difference here is the music in use by the Saxons, Gwynedd, Alba and the two Irish factions aren't included in this mod - while on the other hand the music for the Slavs/Balts and Sami/Finns are now in use once more.

The Viking music for the Danes, Norse and Swedes etc is the same in both mods - but more common in this as this centers around Scandinavia.

5. Re-uses the old scripts for the single player campaign making the experience much better actually - for hotseat plz rename the "campaign_script"-file inside of data/world/maps/imperial_Campaign to something else - and then name the one labeled "campaign_script_hotseat" as "casmpaign_script"

- When playing with hotseat most of the scripts doesn't work past turn number two, while on the other hand if you play with working scripts the hotseat will CTD when trying to enter the campaign.

6. I've also added new strat-models for the Frankish captain and general, as well as made their capital into a town instead of a village - capital is now Osnabruck.

I have swaped some units around for the Eastern Franks in the campaign - they now have a better starting army with more varied units instead of the same sucking infantry - expect more cavalry in the starting army! But the size of the army is only slightly increased with like two or three units.

7. Also i've implemented new custom settlements for all factions. - Slavs and most Vikings share theirs:

- three out of four Norse vikings have different styled villages and towns but the same style in large town and cities:

- sami/finns do use the same as Alba will use in TLK:WotN:

- and finally the Franks have the Byzantium ones and is the only faction with civilized cities:

8. Marka Horses implemented as well as new animations:

9. I have removed the problem with rebel ships spawning in such a mass that it was impossible to use ships in the mod without cheating - now expect the factions to use ships against each other and without the rebels having dominance over the seas.

The mod is pretty much done now!

Place the mod inside of your Medieval II Total War/mods-folder and start it up by doubleclicking the .bat-file named "WotNbeta". The name of the WotN-folder must be "WotN" - also make sure when un-raring that you don't get mods/WotN/WotN - it should be mods/WotN.

Credits:

- I have done all the work on this update myself.

- New traits and ancillaries have been added today 2017-07/16 by Juzy90.

But there are certain people who deserve credit as without them this wouldn't have been possible:

- The old WotN-team including Absinthia, Ulfhednin, Horsa and Leif Eriksson - for the base-mod, units and scripts etc! Basically all the groundwork and the whole 1.5 beta version. - My 2.0 were just some fixes really and without the music-mod (which was my big contribution to WotN) it weren't much.

- I am currently the only active developer of WotN, and i have permission from other old team-members such as Absinthia and Horsa - to continue this project. - I am an official developer on TWC for WotN.

- Danova and The Last Kingdom - for the Frankish captain and general strat models.

- There was a sharing agreement between Danova, creator of The Last Kingdom - and Wrath of the Norsemen. - There are proof of this on TWC, we have permission to use material such as the Frankish captain and general strat-models.

- Rhaymo and DBM - for the creation of the custom settlements in use by all factions.

- Rhaymo allows the use of DBM assets in other mods - alas we have permission to use the custom settlements.

- The EoR-mod and Deutschland etc - for the new slavic textures applied to the custom settlements by Rhaymo - the Viking/Slav custom settlements have re-textures from EoR.

- I am also an official developer of EoR (East of Rome) and Deutschland himself approved of this - i've gotten Darius permission to use assets from"The Danube Limes" in WotN - and as the custom settlements are Rhaymo's and were free to use for everyone i'd say permission exists for the re-textures also.

So does screenshots cause crashes? I had a major battle crash at the Norman's Capitol right after I won the battle and took a screenshot it crashed then then it said something about Thor. I'm pretty aggravated lol

I barely beat three armies with one while attacking the city.

What program did you use? Obviously it doesn't CTD using Bandicam.

I don't know, but it's highly unlikely to be the cause of the crash.

Try at least two battles as battles shouldn't CTD in this mod.

If it occures again then probably it's due to you winning aginst too big odds. Medieval II mods sometimes crash when that's the case.

Edit:

What mod are you playing?

The Normans ain't included in WotN: The Baltic.

I'm playing the Last Kingdom mod version you had. I had zero crashes in the Baltic mod. And sorry I'm not ****** at you just myself because I must have caused it.

And I use Steam, I guess. Unless I'm misunderstanding the question which I likely am.

lol winning against too big of odds. That sucks, the odds are rarely in my favor against the Vikings.

I see - TLK can crash sometimes but if you try and move your troops differently, fight the battle in a different area or play it again it might not crash.

It's for the most part stable, with some incidents of CTD:s in certain places from certain angles.

Like for example, it can CTD if you play a battle at a certain settlement from one position - but if you play the same battle with one of the other armies it might not.

M2TW is a little odd like that.

Also, you are supposed to be able to win against superior odds - but not when the odds are hugely to your disadvantage.

Beating two armies with one is usually the limit. If you beat three or more it might CTD in certain mods.
