All three of Charles Stuart's kingdoms are in rebellion. Presbyterian covenanters have thrown King Charles and his bishops out of Scotland, occupying northern England. Catholic confederates have retaken much of Ireland. Parliament has ejected the king from his capital, London, and is raising England's trained bands to defend its constitutional rights and the protestant reformation. Each set of rebels claims loyalty to his majesty while taking up arms against him. The king has raised his battle standard in Nottingham and moved his court to Oxford. Anxious to release royalist troops from garrison duty in Ireland, for use against Parliament, King Charles is negotiating with the Catholic confederates under a temporary truce, and considering the legitimisation of catholicism in Ireland.

I always thought the default wfas musket sounds were fine, but after hearing those in csatadi mod and heritage of hussaria, its hard to go back.

If you ever update it, can you pick one of these two? I'm sure the modder of csatadi mod would be more than happy to help as it is open source I'm fairly sure.

Hey, ive noticed that in Dundee and some other city, guards spawn in the wall when sneaking into the city, and thus cant be killed. Any work around besides using cheats? Or could I repair it myself?

Hey, I just want to say, I checked the Talesworld thread, glad to see more might come someday! :D It is really close to being complete and perfect though

The small kind of stuff to add I think would be cool, would be to add more exotic mercenary units. Like get straight up ahistorical in the sense of who was hanging out the Taverns, hire a wing of Winged Hussars :P Same for other other Hussars. I'd also say if grenades could be made to replenish, that'd be a great thing. Never understood why they did that in WFAS. Im not sure if Grenades were used in the English Civil Wars though. Also, I was huge on A Clash of Kings, and all the companions in that were fully accessible, so that they could carry stuff you looted, and gave purpose to them having all the same stats as a player character. If possible for WFAS, it'd be awesome too to have the freelance submod thing that you play as a soldier in another army, and if youre knocked out in battle you switch to a regular soldier or a companion. More open sea paths would be good too, the ship battles in this is pretty fun to me, ultimate chaos

For really big stuff, I would say flesh out the map some and actually add France and the Netherlands(AND MAYBE SPANISH NETHERLANDS TOO) to the mainland to act kind of like Essos did in ACOK, where you have an ostensibly neutral place to sell goods, and to act as a chaotic warzone for fun. In that vein, I'd say the allied factions should be able to recruit eahc other's units at a city, like the Parliament recruiting actual Scottish troops or the Irish having Royalists.

Having main quests that create massive changes would be cool too. Like some really hard quest to capture and have poor King Charles executed, and if you do so, the Royalists and Parliment dies, replaced with England becoming the Commonwealth at war with Scotland and Ireland(The Second English Civil War). The reverses could be true, with having the Royalists defeat the Parliament, and then maybe invade mainland Europe to reclaim English glory and act kind of as a mirror to the Polish quest in Vanilla WFAS

Just so im not just a useless idea guy, how hard would any of this be in implementing on my own as a beginner? I'd love to be involved in making a 17th Century Europe and North America mod for Bannerlord, but the old games would be good for it too :P

LOOKS LIKE I GOTTA DOWNLOAD THIS

Too bad it doesnt still seem to be in development though, but I hope that it all starts working out for Bannerlord

Excellent mod! I hope one day the modders come back and transfer all of this to Bannerlord. The 17th century is heavily overlooked, and the English Civil War is a great time, and feels perfect for Mount & Blade

Very very cool mod. I was asking myself where could i find this armor set? Moddb.com

Cant find it nowhere! The troop who have it they're called " winged hussar" and its from the Royalist Faction.

In royalist markets there is no such armor nor helmet also when you make the armor master craft the " hand crafted hussar armor" its another one its not the same. Do anyone know where to find it?

Thanks
