Greeting, warrior of Jerusalem.
It has been almost 3 months that we haven’t update this mod, and many people may think we stopped our progress due to M&B2 Bannerlord. Actually…… Yes, to a certain extend. Because many of us have played Bannerlord and it takes very long time to take us back to pregress,
Originally, there are plenty of projects we are going to do in this mod, but since the Bannerlord will release in next few month, we are going to rush our work and put content as much as possible. Because you know, everyone want play Bannerlord, include our team members. Therefore, we have to concentrate our projects in this major update, and this is probably the last major update we are going to have for this mod.
But still, we will continue to update this mod. However, it won’t have major update like 1.1 1.2 does. And there are more and more resources we have putted in this mod, and it put more pressure on PC performance. If you would like to have smooth gameplay experience, we recommend you to play 1.12 version.
