Stronghold 2 - Crusader (Aka The Crusades) is a Mod Mod from me for Stronghold 2. The original Mod is from Marlord IT, but his mod is naerly forgotten. I have put a lot of new HD textures, add new plants and a lot of new Sounds, and so that the mod have a big desert and Orient atmosphere.

A few campaigns are planned to play through. The first Campaign is about the first Crusade. A english version is in planning, but for first the missions are in in german.

Feature of this Mod:

• Many new cool textures and completely new 3D models!
• Crusader Music from SHC and SHC2.
• 7 Arabic Units
• Crusader Campaign
• Voice Over for Missions
• Great new UI Design for Editor and User Interface
• Very dry desert ambient
• New plants and shrubs for the new climate

The Mod is still in delevopment. Many thanks to Marlords (Founder and creator of the original Crusader Mod) and Ghost_Phoenix (For his great Plants from his Imperium Condita Mod). I am also very grateful to DarthKiller who helped me to create new 3D models. And Killstume for its new and improved textures for some units.

did anyone solve the problem with the Hawk and the King being unable to attack allegedly due to inability to make spearmen so they never actually attack, never siege?

Hi just wanted to let all those Battlefront fans know that there is a page on facebook with 5,500 likes called "Who Else Wants Star Wars Battlefront III ?" The aim is to get Lucasarts to notice what fans actually want. If you wish to show your support simply log onto Facebook and go to the page and click Like.

Gaming websites have taken notice and even written articles so Lucasarts can see and every like that the page gets is another step towards Battlefront 3 being developed.

Thanks :)

sign up in this petition and lets get their attention!

the target of this petition is to force firefly to add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 or release the gm1 code so we can mod it. firefly must release also tools like AIV and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection and the ability to add new fully configurable AI opponents.
You me and the rest of the good customers of firefly we pay money and we continue
do that.

what firefly do in return?
releases stronghold crusader "extreme" a pathetic excuse of a game with no point what so ever. instead of adding skirmish in the existing one stronghold 1.

We sent massages but we get nothing in return. all we see its a faceless company!

they don't want to release gm1 code, and so we cant mod.
if they want to keep it secret ok but in return do what we want!
WE are buying and you sell it.

What we want is:
1)add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 OR release the gm1 code so we can mod it.
2)release also tools like AIV, and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection, and attack methods.
3)the ability to the user to add new fully configurable AI
opponents.(faces,voices,animation,army customization.ect..)

We will not buy any of your games if you don't proceed as we ordered.

Someone should make a mod for Stronghold 2. Ir could be a Roman mod or a mod with new houses and buildings for the game or something else?

Seriously this is RIDICULOUS!

No mods whatsoever!

Someone should hold a competition to see who can make a mod out of this game.

Hmmm... Could ModDB do such a thing?
