The Battle of Ksar El Kebir, also known as Battle of Three Kings, or "Battle of Oued El Makhazeen" in Morocco, and Battle of Alcácer Quibir in Portugal (variant spellings are legion: Alcácer-Quivir, Alcazarquivir, Alcassar, meaning grand castle in Arabic), was fought in northern Morocco, near the town of Ksar-el-Kebir between Tangier and Fez, on 4 August 1578. The combatants were the army of Abu Abdallah Mohammed II Saadi, of the Saadi dynasty, with his ally the King Sebastian of Portugal, and a large Moroccan army nominally under the new Sultan of Morocco (and uncle of Abu Abdallah Mohammed II Saadi) Abd Al-Malik of the Saadi dynasty.
I guess you have a blurry overview of what will this mod be about, it focuses about the Expansion of the Saadi Dynasty
, and it wars against the Portuguese Empire
and the Songhai Empire
So the factions that have to be found in that mod are :
*: The kingdom of portugal won't see all his lands included, but only the fort and towns they built at morocco, there are a lot of them, so it shouldn't be too empty
- The Saadi Dynasty
- The Portuguese Empire*
- The Songhai Empire
- The Ottoman Empire**
**: Same goes for the Ottoman empire, only algeria and maybe tunisia is included, plus the fact that the ottomans will play a very minor role in that mod, and i do apologize to all the turks of that forum (i know there are plenty)
I don't want to have more factions since it will be a great challenge to complete the ones i actually have.
What is planned
Like any other mod, this mod will have some news weapons, armors, cloths, buildings, flora, but also accurate scenes, and historical lords, rulers and locations. Also i don't want to give all the features i have in my mind right here right now, because it's better when you discover them while playing
All i can say is that this mod will add immersion and i plan to enhance the combat gameplay and mechanics too. also i didn't forgot religion that plays a great role here.
What is needed
To make a good mod, we do need capable guys, i can model, texture and code and do most of the modding, but there are a lot of more talented people around here that could help and one person's modules do take forever to come out, so if you feel the envy to contribute in that mod, you are more than welcome here on the team(that consists of me actually)
Also i made a little Faq to save you some trouble
When will this mod get released ?
When it's completely done.
Are you going to include spain ?
Are you going to add firearms ?
Yes, Arquebuses will be in, cannons too maybe.
