Please post any new mods, or ones that I've missed, here.
I'll try to update every couple of days.

Note: I don't have the time, nor the bandwidth to test all of these mods with v1.011, to the best of my knowledge they all work and I've removed the ones that don't, but please tell me if I'm wrong so the mod can be removed.


Pretty sure, yes.
I don't think I've tried it out, but the texture names haven't changed, so it should work with any recent version.


Knight at Arms
Also buildings replacement (under development)



Calradia Map Makeover, gameplay and Graphics?

Also, thanks for the list.


Thanks, used to have that installed but I forgot all about it. It's been ages since I've had music turned on in M&B.

Realistic Native Weapon sizes is for .89X versions, no?  (Did I misread the thread title to mean these mods were all .960 compatible?)
