Europe in April 1521, a big wave of wars has come over the continent.
Nearly every country is involved in bloody battles.
Due to the large influx of gold and silver from the New World, the monetary value decreases rapidly.
Money is getting more and more useless and people start to organize revoltes against their government.
The christian church has been split into protestant and catholic and muslim armies
from the Ottoman Empire are trying to conquer south european and north african factions with united forces.
How will it all end? It's up to you.
You are able to decisively influence the outcome of any battle which takes place,
from Iceland to Saudi Arabia and from Russia to Morroco.

What does that mean?
It means, that you can create a character which is connectet to a database on our server.
This character is able to level up in multiplayer, so it gets xp and gold for kills etc.
And the leveling will be similar to the leveling in singleplayer.

But this feature only will be available in a few months. I havent created the database yet.

Good evening.
I just want to make sure, that I'm still working nonstop on my mod. :wink:
So I want to show you my changelog of the latest version.
Code:
v0.170 (July 26, 2012)
- added break chance on some weapons
- horses now also lose hp if they bump other agents
- added fall damage to rider, if the horse falls down
- added a new reticle
- improved shot distance calculation
- added the server option to disallow melee weapons, armors and horses
- multiplayer weather and daytime is now changeable
- added an automatic administration mode to the admin panel
- added an own chat for admins only
- improved server and client scripts
- new and optimized method to calucate the max draw time for bows
- grenades and cannonballs now damage detructible objects
- added LOD's for many bushes
- item balance
- several bug fixes

As you can see, horses will lose health points if they bump other players.
In this screen you see the moment after I bumped another player with my horse and my horse actually has lost hp from the impact.
In the lower left corner of this screen you can see the multiplayer damage report.

By the way
I'm going to release an open alpha of "Battle of Europe" in august or september (depends on how quickly I will finish my planned stuff).
I already rented servers, so you will be able to play it online nonstop.

After trying the mod (for a little time sadly) all I have to say is that the mod has a lot of potentials,it has a lot of elements that not only make it balanced but fun aswell.

Keep up  the good work Sebastian  :smile:
