Anno 1493, almost forty

years have passed since the Duchy of Milan and the Republic of Venice agreed on the shaky peace of Lodi.
Now, with the invasion of the French king Charles VIII., This phase of prosperity seems to end with a hammer blow.
Doubtful claims on Naples and the Duchy of Milan led him and his many soldiers on the peninsula.
But he is not the only one who casts covetous eyes on the richness of Italy.
Although the Republic of Venice loses ground against the Ottomans in the Aegean Sea, they gain new possessions but at the expense of the emperor in the north.
He is just concerned about securing his Burgundian inheritance, must now also march to the south, if he wants to preserve the imperial authority.
At the other end of the boot, Sicily and large parts of southern Italy are under Spanish rule, which competes with the corrupt popes for power and land.
Located in the misery the Duke of Milan has actually lost the battle, it seems that his opponents are too strong. His only hope seems to be the dreaded Swiss mercenaries.
But they seem to have their own plans and won't miss their change to prove their power.
On the edge is the Hungarian Kingdom that arms itself against the onslaught of the Ottomans.

Hello dear fans, fellow modders and ModDB-Community,

well, it has been quite a journey since I set out to work on the Italian Wars back in 2012.
I learnt a lot about modding, managing projects, rage attacks cos the code was not working, 3D and 2D modelling and many other skills,
which I'll never want to miss.

Sadly though, this must be the end of my journey and with it, for Italian Wars, too.
My reallife has changed rapidly during the last months and I am now about to found a company.
That takes a lot of time and effort, which sadly leaves no time for modding at all..

So I am here to announce that the pre-release of Italian Wars - Ultimate will be on next Friday, 31th of August.
Better mark that date in your calender! ;P

Also I'd like to very much say thank you to my fellow travellers,
without them there would have never been an Italian Wars as it is today.
First of all Vlad Tepes who allowed me to carry on his initial project Italian Wars (Die Italienischen Kriege 1.0), but also supported me through out the work on version 2.0-3.3.1. There is of course Iskar, without him you guys probably would not have as many events as you have now in the Italian Wars. Besides he was a merciless bug hunter and 'pain in the arse', who helped me expand and reach out far beyond my thought humble possibilities and skills.
The thing about modding, all people just awe about the outcome, shiny new models, all that stuff, but never appreciate the actual hard work behind all this. There is no reward or appreciation on those people's work. No matter how essential it is. Luckily, I had Malborough and Morifea with me who supported me in all this minor tasks and worked as hard as anyone else, even harder, so that Italian Wars could see the light of day.
Of course there are many others, who helped me to set out on the right path.
Thank you very much to all of you!

Well, enough bla bla.. :D

See you next week!
Ned
