This has probably been mentioned, but I just finished reading The Diary of a Napoleonic Foot Soldier, by Jakob Walter,
a stonemason from Württemberg, and his experiences in 1806, 1809 and finally 1812 in the Grande Armeé.

It's one of the only known descriptions of the wars by a common footsoldier.
It's both funny at times and harrowing to read about the march towards Moscow and the horrible retreat.

Highly recommended, and not without inspiration for the mod  :smile:

(In the article a Joseph Abbeel is also mentioned. Has anyone read his diary?)
 
This is probably too early to show, and it's just a test scene, but here's a little look at some of the interior work I've been doing lately. This is some middle-class stuff, so not exactly rubbish, but certainly not what you'll see in palaces.

The game's awful lighting isn't exactly helping, but there's nothing that I can do about that. I haven't made a proper ceiling yet, either, so ignore that one.

Were the rooms really that tall? Those soldiers look like migets!

That's quite a low ceiling by 18th century standards.

At some point I hope to undertake the huge job of making a part of the Tuileries. Maybe let you walk around the Place du Carrousel. I have done considerable research on what the Tuileries and Louvre looked like in 1809, it'd be nice to use it.

Nice, can't wait to go kick up the obligatory fuss at horse guards now. Though I assume cities will just have generic buildongs with some small variation.

The excesses of people who paid for buildings like that are almost as amazing as the buildings themselves.

On a similar note, will players be able to own estates as they had castles and villages in native?

Would be pretty cool to have a place where you could plan overthrowing the current ruler.

A tavern would be pretty neat to own.
