This looks great. I have a few suggestions: 1) You should incorporate blood, broads, & bastards 2) You should DEFINITELY incorporate many, many more regions into the game; the vanilla regions are just completely bare bones - one of the regions and provinces mods would be good. It would probably be best to make two versions, one with bigmap and one without. 3) any kind of AI improvement would be preferable. All that being said, I'm sure it's already great the way it is and can't wait to play it.

Renaissance mod Team-for their sensitivity and respect to permissions and their proffessional working behaviours.
YES! We made the credits!

BTW, I think this is the only mod that actually does something drastically cool... tons of outrageously cool stuff in this...

other mods just kinda say "better ai, more realistic battles, 5000 added regions, 9 new factions"

but this one actually does something incredible.

Can you combine this with DLV or would it not work??? I like the new factions but the Role Playing element of DLVs got me hooked.

Will this work with 1.2 patch?

Probably it will work.Because NaptownKnight confirmed that it was compatible with the Khwarezm mod.This mod contains largely parts from it.
