[WB][B] Crusader - Way to expiation
« on: March 06, 2011, 02:21:50 PM »
MOD IS NOT ABSOLUTELY HISTORICALLY ACCURATE !  IT'S NOT DEAD ! RELEASE DATE UNKNOWN !


Introduction:


19 years has past since 1187, when 'Allah warriors' lead by the Salāh ad-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūbi took control of the sacred city - Jerusalem and the Empty tomb! The Holy See in Rome reacted immediately. But, followed one by one Third and Fourth Crusades didn't end up as they were planned and Jerusalem still remained in hands of the 'infidels'. But this Crusades created a nice bridgehead on the Holy Land and Balkans.
The year 1206 has began and crusaders still desire to conquer Jerusalem and the Empty tomb! Meanwhile devout muslims want to drive away remaining rcusaders from their lands and that is where they have to 'win and get everything' or 'be defeated and lose' this sacred for both sides lands.
Many of those considered Crusades and the Holy war as a redemption for their God and Allah. After vowing to commit the crusade they enter the Holy Land and clash with the 'infidels'


This mod occupies time periods between Fourth (1202-1204) and Fifth (1217-1221) Crusades. It starts at 1206 and lasts till 1217.
Like warriors of that war, you must choose who will you fight with and who will evantually take control over the Holy lands during the Crusades!

The Sultanate of Rûm
Union of Antioch and Tripoli
The Kingdom of Jerusalem
The Ayyubids Sultanate

This is our attempt to create a high-quality mod and there's a lot of things left to do. Our team is relatively small and we are allways looking for talented people who are ready to help the development. Particulary:
- modellers and texturers for architecture, ships, armours, civil clothes and flora;
- scene makers;
- animation makers;
- 2D artists, painters.

We are glad to have any help so if you want to join the team just PM Fahnenträger, or post in this thread.

The mod is developed on a russian fan-site - http://rusmnb.ru/index.php?board=39.0

This post will be updated pretty often, so may be some day you'll see a certain release date ;)

He moved on M&B from Warband that theme, too, so you should update.

Nope, a second one. The first one was pretty much outdated and the topicstarter has gone for a long time already.

Just, we want to combine a new topic with the old to have we can still edit the first post, but the first attempt was unsuccessful, and therefore had to create a new topic.

Ps This is agreed with the moderator.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! :shock:
My Russian brothers,you show your HUGE talent...i couldn't resist to see all pictures you have posted yesterday and all are ******** great.
But i have a question:I saw on 11th screenshot and on various other screens while the siege that units have formations,and formations look really,really cool.
Oh and on 11th picture,i saw Crusader knights with their lances down and they are serried together and attacking Muslims while in that formation.Is that a new feature(formation of knights on 11th screenshot)? :)

Cheers,GOOD LUCK and always have in mind that you guys,makers of Crusader-Way to Expiation,will have enormous support by me!

This is going to be one of best,historical mods of all times for Warband! :D

Thanks  :)
On 11th picture knights use the new lance with a modified functional. Lance are of two types:
1) long - they can be applied only to ram blow (sorry, but I do not know how it is properly called in English)
2) short - they can chop, but you can not put ram stroke.
On the screenshot, knights used a long lance, and therefore they behave with him on another.

So far, only reworked the AI during the siege. As can be seen in the screenshots, the soldiers are using formations, as they spawn in certain places, depending on the class. Also bowmans using the arrow slits, and the attacking bowmans hide behind mantlet (which must first be built before the fight).

Anyways,good luck on the further parts of the mod.

Awesome work and all but I want to ask some questions:
Can you join the guilds(templars,hospitallers,assassins etc)?
If yes, will they give you special quests with item awards?
Every single scene in the game will be redone right?
