It has been a year since the American Civil War ended.  The fighting may have stopped back east, but it has begun anew along the US/Mexican border.  To the north, Apaches and Comanches fight to maintain their way of life. To the south, Mexico keeps a cautious eye on the ever expanding might of the United States. And everywhere, bandits, outlaws, and corrupt lawmen continue to pillage villages and rob banks.

1866 aims to bring the atmosphere of the most famous western movies to Mount and Blade.  Climb into your saddle and experience one of the wildest places in the west.  You'll ride into El Paso a stranger, but will you ride into the sunset as a legend of the west?

Feature list:
  • New Firearms: More than 65 realistic, period-accurate firearms, including the famous Colt M1851 Navy and the Winchester 1866.
  • New Clothing: Many new western outfits and hats have been added to bring you back to the old west, including some historical military uniforms for the United States and Mexico.
  • New Melee Weapons: Dozens of melee weapons have been added.
  • New Factions (major): Four civilizations (The United States, Mexico, Apaches and Comanches) and three gang types(Outlaws, Bandits and Lawmen) to join.
  • New Factions (minor): Renegade Confederates, Indian Raiders, Mexican Imperialists, and Scalphunters now roam the map. The player can be friendly or hostile with these factions, and even recruit troops from them.
  • New Scenes: Every town and village has been redone (once again!) to make the player feel like they're in the old West.
  • New Troop Trees:  Varied troop trees designed to highlight each faction's strengths and weaknesses.
  • New Sounds: including distinct sounds for different weapons, ricochets, and explosions.
  • New UI: featuring art from famous western artists, the user interface is designed to bring the M&B feel into the era of the old west.
  • New Effects: Custom weapon particle effects and animations.
  • New Quests: including working wanted posters with bounty rewards and duels, town shootouts, stagecoach robberies, bank robberies, and ambushes for honorable/dishonorable characters!
  • New Map: Based on the border region of Texas, Mexico, and New Mexico.  Includes new icons for towns, villages, armies, animals.
  • New Character Customization: including new races (American, Mexican, Native American) for both sexes: improved faces, facial hair, and even customizable warpaint!
  • New Characters: Historical characters lead the armies of each civilization, and fictional companions can join your army.
  • New Banking Features: For those of you who would rather put money in a bank than rob it.
  • New Hunting Features: Hunt the native wildlife to sustain your armies and for their valuable hides.
  • New Quick Battles: including Gettysburg, a Camp Defense during a Comanche Raid, and more to get you right into the action.
  • New Battle Scenes: Customized to recreate the wilderness of the American southwest.
  • New Music: brings the western atmosphere to life.  All music included is copyrighted and is by 1866 with permission.
  • New Bleeding Feature: Non-player Troops who have sustained heavy damage become less effective and will die or lose consciousness after some time.
  • New Skills: Stockpiling allows players to use larger bags of ammunition.
  • Shotguns\Dynamite: Shotguns can now hit multiple targets, but at long range the damage is greatly decreased. Dynamite excels at taking out large groups.
  • New Enemies: A greater variety of enemies can now be found on the world map.
  • New Horses: A wide variety of horses historically found in the west are now available.
  • New Animations: Animations have been improved to make the gunplay more realistic.
  • New Voice Acting: Voice acting for all troop races and sexes.  Command sounds have been added for male troops.
  • Improved Flora: Better plants from the American Southwest.
  • Death Cam: So you can watch your troops continue the fight when that stray bullet takes you out unexpectedly.
  • Faction Relation Cooldown: The relation impact of your actions fades with time.

This is SO much more amazing thanks to my new found knowledge of a 50 fps increase by setting the max fps to 10000.

Wow, already released! :smile:
I've been looking forward to this! Especially the town shootouts. ^^

P.S: Is it already Christmas again? :grin:

EDIT I: Haha, great! I just got arrested on charge of:
2 count(s) of first-degree murder on an officer of the peace
11 count(s) of first-degree murder
1 count(s) of assault on an officer of the peace
4 count(s) of simple assault

The judge posted my bail at 500 dollars and 49 cents.
I don't think I'm welcome in Bishop's Lodge anymore... :razz:

This was the first thing I did. :mrgreen:

But there are problems too. I get lagspikes everywhere but the FPS rate is 50-70 at every scene. Any solution ?[/b]
