Description: Aztec Invasion Mod for Medieval 2 Total War v1.0

What the mod does
Simply, makes the Aztecs a playable faction, gives them the means to cross the Atlantic and cleans up some now-redundant scripting.

Thanks to repman's post here identifying the 'undiscovered parameter and the community's tutorials here - we've now been able to make a mod that allows the Aztecs to invade the Old World.

Installation instructions
Take the descr_strat.txt, campaign_script.txt and descr_mercenaries.txt files from the zipped folder and use them to overwrite the existing versions in your Medieval 2 Total War/data/world/maps/campaign/imperial_campaign folder.

NB Make a copy of the original versions of these files first as backups!

NB2 You may have to remove the write-protection on the original files. Do this by right-clicking on them, clicking Properties and then deselecting the Read-only attribute.

How it works in the game

The Aztecs now appear on the Select Faction screen. Lots of the description stuff is missing - but we'll have to wait for an unpacker to fix that.

The Aztec field armies start off near the beach where ships can be boarded and now ocean-going Carrack ships are available as mercenaries.

Hire a few Carracks and set sail

A long journey to the Old World and there's some unpleasant weather en route

Finally land in a wintry land filled with strange people speaking a foreign tongue

Let the Aztec Invasion begin!

The Aztec Empire has a new outpost - and in an even more bizarre turn of fate, some of your own warriors have rebelled and now defend these savages of the eastern isles.

A few gameplay notes
1) Don't upgrade your cities back in Mexico as you'll lose your recruitment options.
2) The carracks will refresh but not for a long while so take good care of them.
3) Despite your funds and secure home base - performing a one faction invasion of the entire of Europe with stretched supply lines and extremely limited building options is still going to be a challenge!
