Calradian Crusaders v2.3

Calradian Crusaders v2.3 is released, all bugs and annoyances are fixed, nice new features, new equipment and troops overhaul. This mod is not in development for the time being since it's already how I idealized it when started making it so I feel is finished and I'm currently only working on my new mod Sands of Faith (try it if you liked this one, it has even more features although a very different concept and gameplay).

For anyone interested you can find the SOURCE CODE in nexusmods.

nice mod (as far as i have seen content in it), just one point thats bugging me... AI in tournaments kills me onehit.. with like 100 to 200 damage, partly standing still and reaching those amounts of damage...
besides that, new tournament system is really cool, troop trees are nice too, though i miss the nord huscarls or a equivalent of them (though, did an equivalent exist in that time? i don't know)

Tournaments are hard at the beginning unlike in vanilla, you need to improve your stats like Ironflesh.

Hey guys this was my first mod for Warband where I learned how to mod it so it's kinda amateurish and a bit buggy xd The source code from v2.3 version was used as base for Sands of Faith although many bugs that were fixed are still present in this mod (however the worse bugs had been fixed in this mod version 2.3 already)

It was not that bad dude. I enjoyed the music very much while playing this mod. I especially like the tavern music you added. (The one that sounded like a feast type of music that would be played by musicians and minstrels along with singing in old medieval Latin etc)
