Tyberius Mod 2.0 Final Version (a patch for MTW-VI-XL mod)
After months of re-working on my patch I’m glad to show this community the final version of this work. Although based on XL mod, you will find substantial changes from the original version.
This mod is intended as mainly a graphic upgrade and unit upgrade over Miguel Kristensen's (Viking Horde)Total War XL awesome mod since my knowledge is on the graphics area and so far from programming skills, I decided not to make a complete mod for myself, so I asked VH permission to release it and he gave it to me.
Over all XL mod additions such as New campaigns, factions, and units,
Tyberius Mod contributes with the following additions and changes.
Battle mode Improved Features:
1.- Complete shield textures Improved.
Personalized and improved shields for every single unit, you will hardly recognize a re-used shield, even bare wood shields. Several units now use heraldry and faction colored shields, Some shields have been repositioned too.
2.- Complete Weapon textures Improved.
No more Sticks, toothpicks or matches instead of Spears and Lances, Great variety of swords, maces, war hammers, pole arms and scimitars, accordingly to the unit’s original culture. Higher Knights have Colored knightly lances, Some units such as the Royal Knights (all periods), Chivalric Knights, Lancers, Kataphraktoi, Carska Garda and Teutonic Knights, now have fluttering pennants!.
3.- New men textures added.
Now Korean units use the STW Mongol invasion non faction colored Korean troop textures, but with improved weapons (bamboo spears!) and fixed animations.
Pikemen, Swiss Pikemen and Swiss Halberdiers use the PMTW pikemen texture and fixed animations.
4.- Sword Animation for Lance Cavalry
Knights and Heavy cavalry now leave their lances after the charge and use their swords for close combat!
5.- Animation improvements
Most wrong animated sword and lance combat action have been improved putting the weapon in the wielder’s hand instead of floating over it. Most weapon lengths and widths have been fixed too.
All Cavalry Lances and some other weapons have been repositioned.
Put special attention on Swabian Swordsmen, Varangian Swordsmen, Gothic foot Knights, Pikemen, Swiss Pikemen, Swiss armoured pikemen, Swiss Guards.

Campaign Mode Improved Features:
1.-New Flags and Shields
Almost all faction flags and shields have been re- designed or redrawn for historic accuracy or image improvement
2.- New Faction Colors
Some Faction colors have been changed some for aesthetic purposes, some to avoid confusions, but mostly to match historic colors.
3.- Overall graphics
New unit info pics, review panel icons and unit icons have been made for the new units and some old units, Omar pacha’s icons included.
New building icons added.
New portraits for pagan and muslim princesses
New Campaign Map
4.- New ships
Three new ship types added to Tatar factions.
Junks (same stats as the dhows)
War Junks (same stats as the baggalas)
Gunned Junks (same stats as the booms)
Since I was unsuccessful on finding historic ships for the European Tatar (or Mongol) factions I made available for them Mongol ships from the Japanese invasion, I hope you don’t find it too unaccurate.
New music: The excellent Mongol Invasion (tm) music now available for the steppe factions, An special music track for the Scottish (and Irish) factions, 4 new themes from MTW2 for the european, viking and muslim soundtrack.
