As some of you have already seen in the Modding Discord, I have started to write down a new, more detailed Modding Guide for M&B Warband. Take note, it is work in progress and there is still a lot which needs to find its place inside there. The plan is to gather all available informations scattered across the forum and integrate into one Guide which can then serve as a good base for all Modders of the Warband Engine.

I use LaTex for writting the Modding Guide and I have the source available at GitLab for the case that I can't continue the project, so others will be able to pick up the work.

I have uploaded the current version of the Modding Guide at moddb and will update the file there after every big push at the GitLab.
