A new and final (this time really final) version of the mod has been released. The new version mainly contains various fixes: for scenes, script errors and so on. In other words, some of the last holes was filled.

This version should also be compatible with 1.11 version of the mod. However this is untested, so use at your own risk. It is generally recommended to start a new game with every new version of the mod.

This is the last version of the mod with no plans to continue development anymore. Thank you all for your support and contributions over these years!

Holy Roman Empire and France seem OP. They just keep going on their own. France has already captured England after 100 days.

Now I found this village called crap and the owner is local village idiot in the location list, also, the village is tied to a castle called player castle. I think That this more of a funny Easter egg but i don't see that this is a secret cuz no one said anything and i read a few pages of the comments.

Wow, what can i say, i never felt any feelingas close as that of shooting down Hungarian and Lithuanian armies with my mongol veteran horse archers, the quick horses and their precise aims make them easily the most feared troops in the game.. When i was playing as the Empire of Nicea i avoided triggering a war with the il-khanate because my Greek heay javelin throwers could NOT compete with those lions, my only complain is that a recruitable mongol lance from the camps costs like 2000 denars but i guess a fair price for how powerful they are, i am amazed

mod is great somehow.. however, not being able to do battle size +150 is really pain in the *** and I hated it for that sole reason, I searched around to change that but couldn't find a solution..

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

i have some problem when defeating a faction, they dont disappear and spawn patrols, its a bug?

Its not the patrols just become hostile grey patrols just like bandits, it means they are no longer affiliated to anyone. They no longer respawn and are hostile to everyone. Its like the last remnants of a kingdom

I have to say this mod is one of the most successful mods I have ever played. It needs some polishing, it's still alpha, but yet feels like closed beta. I can't wait for a final version. The mod itself feels like a total new game. The map is just outstanding as in size and in factions. The soundtrack is beautiful and fitting. Combining AD 1257 with Warband Battle Sizer will give you the most amazing experience you ever had in M&B. Numerous times I felt like in the movie Braveheart on the battlefield…
