    well as far as i can determine we can only make 64 unique map types

    NOW
    if you determine which provinces are very important, likely to be fought for a lot,
    then we can make a select number of border maps for those provinces,

    and have the remaining types available for all other provinces,
    we can of course make sets for regions/areas,

    research is continuing on adding other map types to the set,
    but frankly, given what appear to be hardcode parameters, dont hold your breath

    still - some is better than none

    Will there be much focus on conquering the eastern end of North America, or will the native American factions be more interested in crossing the Atlantic? If the latter is the case, then perhaps an "amalgated" Algonquin faction isn't necessary.

    I don't really want to encourage the Indians to cross the Atlantic....that will take a long time for them to do, and will be a rare occurrance. They're main job will be the fend off invaders. America will be a very tough area to take.

    My point was just that algonquians should not be "Hollywood Indians"

    Those sites are reaaallly bad and unhistorical btw.
    Hi

    Unhistorical?

    Most of the artists on those sites are native Indians ;)

    Hopefully, you will be able to provide more historical sites and paintings.

    Just a quick update - things are coming along nicely. The Tuscans have been replaced by the Pisans, complete with new shield graphics.

    Work's progressing nicely. All the necessary buildings and units from the Super Mod are in and I'm working on new ones. Some, like the Indians, are being saved for the time being. Here's a sneak peak at some so far, hope you enjoy them:

    Maine Spearmen:



    Breton Cavalry (sorry about the flag - only temporary!)



    Melee featuring Norman Archers and Norman Light Cavalry. Breton Militia return from the Super Mod:



    Of course this is all unfinished....the Almohad flag has already gone and the unit battle icons will be made. Its just a taster of many of the new units to come.

    Comepletely exicted!
    I have one question, what is the time period listed for this mod?
    It would be awsome if you could extend the mod to the 1600's or even 1700's so you could get troops from the 30 years war etc. Although, with the elongated map it might be tough but whatever.


    Ya Misr!

    Looks fantastic, gives me yet another reason to keep MTW, if it plays as well as BKB's SuperMod (which is one of the best MTW Mods beside NAP:TW.

    I'm in the process of starting on the Indian units and hopefully they should be done soon. The rest of the units for all of the other factios in the early period or AA are done.

    The Indian unit pics will be posted sometime tonight as the mod is reaching the stage with adding buildings and then hopefully balancing the campaign map soon after for the early period. Most of the units are done but the units are not balanced yet.

    Its taking longer than I thought....so much Uni work! I'll try my best to get it out for Christmas but lets wait and see. In the mean time, here's some pics:

    Assorted Kingdom of the Isles soldiers, including Shetland Levies and Orkneyjar Infantry line up for battle:



    The Norse settlers attempt a daring raid into Inner Greenland:



    Some Greenland Settlers attempt to hold the line against the oncoming Skraeling hordes:



    The aftermath is a telling one for the Dorset Eskimo:



    The situation in the British Isles is a precarious one:



    One of the many new buildings, Foundations. This will reduce fort price and building time:



    The Indian units are edited slightly from the Hellenic mod, with new weapons and shields. I've tried contacting the Hellenic guys but to no avail - if you're reading this boys, hope you're ok with it!

    Again, not everything is final.
