This is a tiny aesthetic mod for NW, I made it for myself but have decided to share.

Its really immersion breaking to see topless pirates running around (especially female ones!) so I made this mod to change the appearance of the ship crew of the British & French factions.

In a nutshell:

- Men (of both factions) now actually look like sailors, with appropriate attire.

- French female shipcrew now look like Cantinieres (no napoleonic army is complete without one!)

- British female shipcrew now look like camp followers.

- I also replaced the awful female hair, no more silly hairstyles!

- Replaced some of the ugly female face textures with prettier ones.

There are no bugs/issues and it works perfectly on all NW multiplayer servers (like minisiege, TP, bot battle, etc...)

Aswell as people who play as a female and those wanting to see historically accurate women and sailors in battle, I think this mod would be good for regiments and roleplay servers who want an extra level of realism.

Enjoy! - Nicole x

ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are wanting some help creating historically accurate clothing (especially women's clothing) for your mod, send me a message and if Im interested I'll make you some :)

Im wanting to start a historical reenactment group for people interested in portraying an authentic battalion (complete with camp followers & cantinieres!). It would be really fun to have battles and sieges using authentic formations and stuff, and RP'ing as a 19th century soldier or civilian!

If it works out and alot of people are interested i'll probably look at getting a server.

If your interested in helping me start one then send me a message :D

So, this just improves the sailor class and adds female outfits, but doesn't change anything gameplay-wise, right?

yup just changes the outfits of the french (female) sailors to cantinieres, and the british women to camp followers. The male sailors (british & french) now look like actual sailors not pirates anymore.

it should work on most servers including miniseige... its client side only (literally just changed the clothing) so should work?

unless there has been lots of updates since i made it? (iv not played in a while so...)

i think the source code is in the mod so if you wanted you could update it yourself?

Thanks for the reply, I'll try launching a server with the mod and see if it works.
As to updating it myself, I've not played NW much, so I don't know its file system or whatever very well.
Edit: Alright, so I launched it, and when I tried entering a server (minisiege), it told me that the server's using a different module than the one I'm using, and asked me if I wanted to switch to it. Clicking 'no' does nothing. Clicking 'yes' launches the server. I chose Britain. The British specialists roster featured 'ship crew' which has Marine, Ship Crew, Naval Artillery, and the officer. The Marine wears a red-jacket uniform and black brimmed hat, the Ship Crew and Naval Arti wear striped trousers, a hat, a neckerchief, but no shirt or shoes. Either there's a version inconsistency, or something doesn't work.

do you have any other client side mods too?

I think that error message about running a different module is because maybe youv put it in the wrong place? Im not sure as i never ran into that problem.

Im not sure about that issue when i used to play NW i always used this mod and nad no issues. I literally just changed the clothing models of the sailor crew troops i didnt change any others so not sure why it was doing that.

It shouldnt matter what server you use - its client side so works for all. miniseige was the only really the server i played and it worked for me.

the only thing i can think of is that NW might have had some updates to the game since i made this mod. Iv not played this game in like 6 months... been on bannerlord now mostly. but i cant image that there would have been any update that affected my mod working. It really is just a small client side aesthetic mod nothing crazy - no intense scripting or anything...

Could the fact that I saved it a standalone module folder have anything to do with this? Was I supposed to just replace the vanilla NW folder?

yes just replace your NW folder with this one... i kinda messed up and uploaded all the game instead of just the files used... so just replace the game and it should work :)
