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.

Recruitment Limitation Script


This script has a bit of a history. First it was developed by the DLV Team for their mod, which inspired me to create a recruitment limitation script myself for the Italian Wars. Especially in the context of major and minor factions, which should be limited in their amount of troops they can sustain in the field. My first attempt for version 4.0 failed and was not fully functional. Gigantus did lend me a hand and made several improvements and finally even successfully implemented it into the EB mod. Now after some time I started a second attempt, which was a full success and I was able to adjust the script into the Italian Wars mod. Please enjoy this new feature introduced to the Italian Wars - Ultimate version.


Basics of the Recruitment Limitation script

Every faction starts with the certain amount of available slots in their pool. The size of the pool is determined by the amount and size of settlements it controls. So the larger a settlement is and the more settlements you control, the more points for the pool you get. You can increase the pool's size by either expanding your realm or upgrading your settlements. Of course, the pool will decrease if you should loose a settlement.

Within the size of your faction specific pool you can recruit as many units as you want. It is basically a point system, where each unit has a value in points. E.g. light infantry has 1 point, but heavy cavalry has 3 or for instance heavy infantry adds 2 points.

So in case the amount of points exceeds the size of your current pool, your recruitment slots within the settlements got deactivated and till you either increase the size of your pool or decrease the amount of points of your units, you can not recruit any new ones.

So basically the amount of troops you can sustain is limited to the amount and size of settlements you control.


How the script works in game

To illustrate my bla bla above here an example on how it works in game on the Republic of Siena.

First we recruit some cool units, heavy cavalry and heavy infantry units.

So what happens in the next turn, after the units are fully recruited, is you will receive an event which informs you about the exceeding of your funds.

Looking at your recruitment queue, no units are available.

To make some space we disband some of our units again and see what happens.

At the start of the next turn we'll get the message that our funds are sufficient again.

As you can see the recruitment slots are available once more.

This feature is going to be applied to all factions available to the player.


Gameplay impact:

Since now you need to be more careful about your recruiting strategy, mercenaries seem to be the right option and yes they are! Mercenaries or any spawned condottiere will not be taken into account of the script. So in case you are a minor Italian power facing a war you should strengthen your armies with several mercenaries. The richer you are, the more you can afford of course ;)

That said, I hope you enjoyed this preview!

I loved this mod, and checking again after so much time I am glad there are these updates (the condotta script, the events and units limit) that will bring completeness to this already outstanding mod! I just would like to know when the Ultimate version with these updates will be released, or if it's already done where I can download it (since it seems to me that there's still the "old" version of 2018). Thank you for your efforts!

Hello, I enjoy your mod a lot, but it is missing unit sprites and some more music. May I have permission to make a submod with sprites and more music? All credits will always go to this mod's developers, of course.

When you are done, just share the files and I'll upload them.
Of course you can post your Sub-Mod here on TWC as well.

When I installed this mod and ran the administrator/installer, every time it would say,
"File corrupt or unreadable:
data\settlements\middle_eastern\settlements\city\middle_eastern_city_a.world.
You will have to run this utility again to completely install Die Italienischen Kriege-Ultimate."
I installed this mod before and this problem never arose.
What do I do?

I did use that website, and this is the first time with a new computer so no previously downloaded files from that game.

Yes. When I installed this mod I looked at multiple videos, and when I searched for the file that is corrupt in my folders it didn't come up.

Most likely the installation stops at before the mentioned file is installed.

So please follow these steps:
First go t the /mod folder and delete the complete Italian_wars folder
Then download all files from here: Twcenter.net
Put all files into one folder and run the .exe file
