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.

The Italian Wars mod team released a new version back in september 2020, but they never uploaded here at ModDB. Now it's time and enjoy this new version!

It's been quite a journey, after so many years I am so happy to present to you a more finished version of the The Italian Wars | Ultimate.
This version has included many of the planned scripts to increase gameplay and bring all the minor factions to life. Though it is not yet finished.. Nevertheless all missing events are fully written but I haven't found the time yet to implement them into the mod. Which means there is still hope to see this mod being finished in the future.

You will find a more than playable version below. Of course, it has not been tested as I did intent, but I'll stick around to lend you guys a hand if any major issue occur.

Hi, around turn 8 (winter 1494) I always experience a ctd after pressing end turn. First playing as Florence and then as the Republic of Venice. It says that Medieval2 has met an unspecified error and will now exit. Any advice on what to do?
