New battlefield orders and formations
This merge contains the troop order mod that diplomacy has build in so for most veterans it will just be business as usual,
none the less a great improvement and worth mentioning. Visit diplomacy mod website for more information (link below)
Some examples are: Volley fire, Shield wall, Pikewall, Ranks (1, 2, 3 deep)

Train a proper personal army that can't die!
If you hate losing troops and just play the game for funs anyway, this is perfect for you.
Build yourself a personal immortal army and just ignore having to recruit new troops.
You will need a huge treasury of course but just think of the possibility's!

just extract the map into your m&b warband module system.
then select the mod in your game launcher.

Compatibility:
This mod is NOT compatible with other mod savegames due to new units, starting a new game is advised.
If you want to merge this mod with another one, pm me and i will send you the module system.

This mod does not require WBSE to run properly, at least not during tests.
Tested on a Steam version of m&b and on a standalone version Latest update (01/03/2013)
Tested on 2 Machines by 2 people.(01/03/2013)
Only Single player has been tested, Multiplayer may or may not work and will most likely behave much like vanilla server.

Companion Balance
Some of the companions might be seen as overpowered, note that these companions have a hire cost related to their skills. to get all of the companions (not counting changing their gear) would cost you well over 200.000 denars.
Allso, you can only send the ORIGIONAL companions out for raising your right to rule, the added companions do not do this to prevent overuse.
