The Portuguese, the first European traders to establish trade colonies in India, have begun their wars against the Muslims. Gunpowder is relatively new and having a strong effect on the peasant and elephant armies traditional to medieval India. =Simpler Submods for a 1725AD and 327BC start date are also in progress.

The main mod for this project is set in 1519, when the Mughal Empire, ruled by Babur, descended from Timur, invaded India with his Afghan army, their steppe influenced cavalry, along with musketmen and light artillery, dominated India for the next two hundred years.

The Mughals were replaced by the Maratha, players Empire Total War with feel more familiar with the next submod, set in 1723, with the rise of the British Trading Company and the Maratha Empire, this mod will focus more heavily on gunpowder warfare. (The map will not be released for a while but a custom battle demo will be released soon)

A Smaller submod set in 1500 is planned, featuring the east African coast and simulating the Portuguse India Armadas and their actions in Kerela and other coastlines of the Indian Ocean. (Map in Early Development)

Long before this, in the year 326 BC, Alexander the Great, After having marched his army all the way from Macedonia, invades the Indian subcontinent. The rise of the Maurya Empire will be the primary focus of this mod. (Map in Early Development)

The unit names in the custom battle screen are pretty hard to read sometimes, apologies, here's a better menu, just drop the zip file into your India...

Hi, just quickly played as the Zamorin in custom battles. a huge factor that is missing is elephants. There would be large numbers of elephants in the kerala armies. Also the shield or buckler shape is wrong. the buckler would look more like this :

lionheartofengland Hey, yeah the unit models are still in pretty early phase but I'll be working more on them soon, there are elephants available to them though, they're right after their cavalry on the pre-battle army selection screen, I'm adding elephant bodyguards for them also

Hey guys,

great idea for a mod. If you would need any help i have extensive knowledge of Portugal and the Mughal Empire. Is there any way to send PM's on moddb? I feel like it's very hard to see which posts came at which time.

I would also suggest asking for the start a lot of other mods for units, so you avoid the ugly generic vanilla ones. For example there are some great mods for Timurid units, the late versions of which could be really well used for the early Mughal army etc...

I think most mods would allow it, same for like Hindu units from Broken Crescent or Portuguese units from a few Euro-Centric mods.

Anways, really excited about this, and if you guys need any help on those factions let me know :)

Timuridboy Hey there I appreciate the offer and we could definitely use any help so please feel free to share whatever, I haven't started with importing custom models because I haven't heard back from the Broken Crescent team for permission yet and I have limited space on my hard drive to download new mods and look for units, I will start soon however for the most common units and unique elite units.

You can PM with the small letter icon at the top left, I would prefer you share information as a post to the Factions and Unit/Unit Appearance article, or whatever is relevant, so huzurat and krishnca, the two other mod members, can see your posts too, also you may want to go to their profiles so you can see all the comments they've posted, a lot of good info. Also I will be updating the articles and posting a new mod version with more units in about a week
Thanks again for the offer

You can tag KingKorgoth in your suggestions, he is right now essentially working as a one man team as far as the development goes. Any help will be very appreciated I'm sure.

As far as early Mughal roster is concerned, I think we've mostly figured most of it. However, our main problem will be showing their transition and implementation into the famous Mansabdari system of Akbar. Representation of both Muslim and Rajput generals simultaneously, as well as separate Hindu and Muslim feudatories with religion intact, as well as special bodyguard unit (Separate ones for Turkic, Rajput, Khurasani and Pashtun Generals). As you can imagine, it is difficult to implement this in Medieval 2 TW's engine.

The fact that Mughal empire was highly diverse with incredible variety of troop types for each region of the empire, is the real challenge right now.

Feel free to explore the forums and discussions, would welcome any help.

Ok, i will write in the correct article.

EDIT: actually it's very confusing, i will write to KingKorgoth a PM first. Btw, i also can't fire the campaign currently for no reason. It worked until i tried it again a few days ago

I don't know it's working for me, I'm using the non-Steam Gold version on windows 7, message me the last twenty lines or so lines of the logs.txt file after it crashes

Might as well watch out for "One Ruler,One Earth" mod...there are certainly some models we can import from there....especially very tribal and local Indian looking levy unit models..
