After the war is a mod that take place after the events of iron plague, when the last war ended. After some peace time the 5 kingdoms expanded their military in case of a future war against each other and developed many new strategies making the battles more interesting than ever. The mod aim to bring new balance to the game with new unit interactions between each other. It is now a revisited, but still close to crusade balance with many more possibilities since all units have now strengths and weaknesses against certain type of units. Many new unit types make their apparition like wood, stone, steel, demon, skeleton, etc which enhance the strategy possibilities compared to the old model with few unit types which led to very little interactions between units.

HOW TO INSTALL :
I highly recommend that you use the last patch for TAK which is the 4.1BB patch.
you can find it easily here: Alltakdownloads.6te.net
If you use the 4.1BB patch all you need to do is find the file named "Keys.tdf" and rename it into "Keys.tdf.disable" to enable mods. (Renamed it back to disable mods or play online with the vanilla game.)
Then put the mod file "blablabla.ufo" inside the game folder.
Disclaimer: i highly recomend playing with the 4.1BB patch and the iron plague expansion.
