Mexican-American War Mod

The Mod Team of the Mexican-American War mod for Battle Cry of Freedom is currently looking for talented 3D Artists and anyone willing to help with the creation of the mod.

Here is a message from their Lead Mod Developer:
"Members and friends of the Republic of Texas Regiment are looking for model makers and mappers interested in helping them develop a Mexican-American War mod they are working on.
Currently, we have a handful of mappers creating maps for the mod, but the more the merrier. As for model/uniform makers, we only have a few. If you are interested in helping out in the creation of this mod or have any questions, please contact either Scotty#2318 or Lord Glorfindel#4251 through Discord.

Thank you, and God Bless Texas."

hello developpers, I was wondering if the game will be easely modable. As you come from the modding community... It would be a great apple if there could be Alamo/ Napoleonic/ franco -prussian wars etc.
