This mod is unfortunately dead. An Open Source Package has been released with some of the content.

The First World War has come to Warband.
My thought behind this mod is for it to be a multiplayer mod, players vs players. I think World War One will be fitting because back then, hand-to-hand combat was still as important as the ranged shooting. To encourage people to further make bayonet charges, the rifles wont be dead accurate and quite slow. I want to bring combat to the dirty trenches of the western front.
To encourage teamwork a new class has been implemented - The Medic.
Basic plan - This will probably change quite a bit:- Factions -- Great Britain- Germany
(To begin with)- Classes -- Infantry
The backbone in every army. Most players will play as infantrymen. The infantry will have rifles, bayonets, improvised weapons, grenades and shovels.- Medic
Some individuals may choose to play as medics. Medics will be able to heal their teammates with healthpacks.
However, to prevent everyone from running around as self healing supermen, medics will be unarmed
, or simply very lightly armed, making their job as team healers even more important.
(Might change medic to some kind of "Support" to bring both ammunition and health to the front line)- Captain
Armed with pistol and whistle. Follow your captain to ensure victory!
(Not sure how to implement this class. Maybe make it cost alot to become captian? Is it possible to vote which player should be captain?)
(I will look into this in the future)
Infantry might be splitted into something like "Rifleman" and "Grenadier".
We'll see how things turn out. Game modes- Capture the Trench
I'm thinking maybe have two bases for each team with a few lines of trenches and in the middle of no-mans-land there will be an empty trench that both teams will have to rush to take first. Or they might wait, shoot the middle-trench clear and then advance, it's up to the team.
The objective will be to capture that trench.
Maybe several trenches to capture and the team who've pushed furthest and taken most trenches win.
We'll see.- Screenshots -
