Greetings,

Another new update for you, this one mainly focuses on bug fixes and rebalancing, plus a few nice improvements. Unless more bugs show up and need urgent fixing, the next updates after this should focus on adding new content, including a planned massive overhaul of how military service works in the mod.

Once the new military system is in place and the current factions are polished and working well, then I'll start on other theatres and factions.

Finally, if you like the mod, please vote for L'Aigle in the 2015 Mod of the Year Awards!

-Added new rain and swing sounds
-Improved musket sounds
-Player's troops now fire at will when the player is KO'd
-Made Prussian general's uniform purchasable
-Changed 'armorer' to 'clothier'
-Changed bayonet damage to pierce
-Increased lord party size
-Decrease base player party size
-Increased party bonus from ranks
-Increased base morale and leadership bonus
-Increased number of recruits available
-Reduced horse armour values
-Reduced the cost of food
-Reduced boxing rewards
-Reduce the amount of cavalry lords get

Some suggestions for future updates
-freelancer mod (enlist as soldier)
-diplomacy mod (this will enhance political and economic aspects of the game)
-new faces to player
-new industries that fit with the 1800's
-cultural item of factions like vodka in russia
-advamce the game time to something like 1814 to put some americans guns of 1800's that participate later in civil war like: Springfield M1795, Springfield M1812, R. Johnson U.S M1814 rifle and Harper's Ferry M1803

It's funny how people can get so worked up about this mod and feel comfortable declaring it dead. Just be patient sir and wait another 10 years if necessary. Find another hobby and fall in love or something;)

Oh yes and vive l'empereur!!

I agree, I waited 10 years for Bannerlord just on screenshots and some dev video- this has already been utilizable and it's still quite fun. Vive L'Empereur

I've got a second prediction here with a 10 year window. Within the next 10 years, Docm/Jackson is going to either ghost the discord server entirely or release an apology in #announcements talking about "how I wasn't man enough to admit... we had a great time... blablabla" but honestly I doubt he even respects you guys enough to give you that after all this time. In addition, if he did man up since 2017 we'd have seen the apology already. Instead we get more empty promises of future updates which will never arrive. The only update we've seen since Dec 2015 is the discord server which really just serves as a vessel by which the desperate brown-nosers can virtually stroke Docm/Jackson's ego. How am I so confident that this mod will never be updated? I followed this page way back in 2015, I had it bookmarked in fact. I know what it looks like when Docm/Jackson is ACTUALLY gonna give you an update. I checked this page daily because of the fact that he showed off every bit of progress made, regularly. The release trailer which got many people hooked (myself included) to the idea of a single-player Napoleonic Wars mod was followed up by a barrage of nearly monthly exclusive looks at upcoming updates. This included minigames, features, uniforms, scenes, you name it. You could check the files, articles, and images on any given day and find something new. Remember the OG L'aigle thread on Taleworlds Forums? Pepperidge Farm remembers. The point of this rant is that if Docm/Jackson was really going to give you an update you'd sure as hell know. The discord would look a little like this moddb page back in the day, when the reality is you can filter for messages he sent and find nothing really meaningful since the servers release. I just hope to God that within the next 10 years time when Jackson either ghosts you or admits to you that he was wrong that it doesn't break your heart.

A little too serious for something made by a volunteer who used his spare time to work on this free mod for all. I find this negative reaction easy to make and thankless. Even though the mod is not finished, I was able to enjoy it. But declaring something dead without knowing what the future will bring is never very constructive. Wait or don't do it, you don't have more choices..

if you do plan to update this mod someday, it'd be great if you added the ability to serve in an army, and work your way up the ranks (while being paid).

i highly doubt that this mod is gone and abandoned it will most likely still be updated sooner or later
