Introduction
Iron Europe is a World War I mod for the Mount&Blade; Warband Napoleonic Wars DLC. Our goal is to immerse players in the brutal battles of WWI. Players will have the opportunity to fight it out, for France or for Germany, in the trenches and in no man's land. Play as an expendable rifleman grunt, a brave officer leading from the front, an artillerymen supporting your comrades from afar, or an elite assault trooper, spearheading attacks.Use bolt-action rifles, machine guns, and pistols to take down enemies from a distance or close in and engage in brutal hand to hand combat with knives, clubs, and the trusty bayonet. A host of features, including whistles, bleeding, bandaging, and grenades have been added to bring the WWI experience to life.

Features
-Two Factions: French Third Republic, German Empire. Fight for the French Third Republic or the German Empire. These mighty titans of Europe have different strengths and weaknesses which players can discover and use to their advantage.
-Wide variety of classes: Each class is unique, with it's own advantages, disadvantages and equipment sets. Apart from typical, expected classes such riflemen, officers, and artillerymen, you'll have the opportunity to play as a support trooper, helping your comrades with ammunition and bandages. Or instead, be an elite Stormtrooper, serving the Vaterland by overrunning enemy defenses and striking deep into their territory. Yet more opportunities await you as a French trench sweeper, a Chauchat gunner or an armored German sentinel.
-Tons of New Weapons: A wide range of killing instruments are at your disposal including bolt-action rifles, revolvers, semi-autos, machine guns, sniper rifles, knives, clubs and bayonets.
-Grenades: Use grenades to assault enemy positions. There are several different types, including both fuse and percussion grenades. Each has unique characteristics, for example, the M16 Stielhandgranate has long range but is awkward to carry while the F1 grenade can be carried in great numbers but cannot be thrown very far. Several Stielhandgranates can be bundled together to form a concentrated charge. There are also place-able grenade launchers and rifle grenades.
-Medical System: Taking a large amount of damage causes bleeding which can be stopped with bandages, carried by support troopers and medics. Medical classes can provide treatment with morphine.
-Ammunition Crates: Support troops can carry ammo crates around the battlefield, allowing comrades to resupply.
-Heavy Machine Guns: Heavy machine guns can be carried around the battlefield and are highly effective in holding positions. Cut down advancing enemy forces with automatic firepower.
-Whistles: As an officer, rally your men and sound the charge with a whistle.
-Binoculars: Binoculars come in handy when you're a sniper, artilleryman or officer. Locate enemy positions and plan accordingly.
-Artillery: Rain fire on your enemies with infantry support guns, field guns and trench mortars.

Hello and welcome back to another Developer blog for Battle Cry of Freedom. This week we will introduce you to one of the unique Regiments in Battle Cry of Freedom, the 72nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Most famous for their participation in the Battle of Antietam and Gettysburg, the so-called "Baxter's Fire Zouaves" will also be represented in the game.


The 72nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment was organized in summer of 1861 by Colonel Clinton Baxter and drew its volunteers mostly from the ranks of the Philadelphia Fire Department. Although raised in Philadelphia, at the start of the war the 72nd PVI went under the name of the Third California Volunteer Infantry Regiment, a special request by the Californian government to credit their participation in the war.

72nd PVI Uniforms

The Baxter's Fire Zouaves wore a modified zouave uniform, complete with vest, kepi, trousers and 6 button cotton-canvas gaiters. Although towards the end of the war, many men were clad with regular Union attire, the 72nd PVI was one of the few regiments to retain their zouave uniform throughout most of the war. This fact is represented in the game, with the 72nd PVI enlisted having the ability to use both zouave and regular union trousers as well as regular forage caps.


On their back the Baxter's Fire Zouaves wore regular double-bag knapsacks. A blanket roll was commonly attached to the top of it. It is not known what type of blanket the 72nd PVI was issued with, as such we have decided to give them access to both emergency and regular Union blankets. Rations and other food were generally carried in the U.S. regulation haversack, which the soldier wears on his side. The 72nd PVI was issued with regular metal canteens, which were covered with cloth in various colors and patterns or simply worn as they were.


Further, the average soldier was equipped with a .58cal cartridge box, usually worn from a shoulder cartridge belt with a round decorative plate affixed. The soldier’s waist belt was decorated with an oval belt buckle made of brass, or in the case of a sergeant, often with a square buckle of more intricate design. Attached to the waistbelt were a cap pouch and a bayonet scabbard.


Officer Uniforms

Being commissioned, officers had more freedom in regards to what and how they wore their equipment. Although the average Union Officer would have likely worn a Federal Officer's Frock Coat, many officers in the 72nd PVI opted to wear their zouave garb instead. Trousers and shoes might have been privately purchased or issued, but there is no telling what the average officer would have worn. As such, officers in the game will be able to pick from a number of trousers, ranging from regular sky or navy blue trousers to zouave trousers with gaiters.

Officers generally would have worn regular 72nd PVI kepis or privately purchased forage caps. Officers would have worn a leather waist belt with a Square plate, and might have attached a pistol holster and cartridge box. Officers likely wore officers' haversacks and a metal or wooden canteen, often with a protective cloth cover.


Weaponry

Supplied by the City of Philadelphia, the 72nd PVI was issued with a number of different guns, with calibers ranging from .58 all the way up to .72. By the time of the civil war, some of the weapons used by the 72nd PVI were more than 50 years old, with the oldest gun being the Model 1809 Potsdam Musket.


Although converted from their original flintlock configuration to percussion, the M1809 Potsdam was neither very accurate nor very light, being one of the longest and heaviest muskets produced. Other guns the 72nd PVI carried included the 1861 Springfield Rifle, the 1855 Springfield Rifle, the 1853 Enfield Rifle, and the Fusil d'Infanterie Modele 1842.


All officers would have been issued with the Model 1850 Army Staff and Field Officers Sword or a privately purchased sword of some kind. Many of them would also have carried a sidearm of some kind, most likely the Colt 1860 and 1848 Army or a number of other, privately purchased or issued revolvers such as the Josyln Army Revolver. (Pictures do not represent all of the available weaponry)


Stay tuned for future updates here or on our Social media, as we have a lot more content coming in the near future. We look forward to seeing you on the battlefield very soon!

If anyone could help me with this i'd appreciate it, see whenever I try to download the exe file it says napoleonic wars is not installed even though its both in my steam library and in my modules folder, one reason may be because I accidently deleted it but I restored the file by using my recycle bin, but that seems unlikely, if you could help i'd really appreciate it!

Broken AI

Hello, overall I like the mod, but there's one issue.
The AI. Whenever I play with bots in a trench, they're struggling to get out. Most of them just run into a wall, some gather and run into a corner of the trench. Could you maybe make them either step on the platform to shoot or simply get out of the trench using the ladders or walk/run our?
Also, if they're gonna use the ladders, please make them use the ladders one by one because when they gather they're all just running into nothing.
Many thanks.
