    Icon14 Knights of Malta

    NOTE : The mod has been released and a new thread has been opened for the released version : http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=425685


    Well I had been a long time enthusiast on the Knights and tried to find many mods but most either took a halt or were inconclusive
    So being a guy who knows nothing about modding I was struck with the Idea : Hey...why don't I just merge a bunch of mods and create one minor mod?

    And found the support of Sir Digby Chicken Caesar who let me use his skins,EmperorBatman999 who offered to model units, Carl von Dbeln who gave his words of knowlage, Archealos who did UI Cards and Info Pics for the new units and Tiyafeh who provided some very useful info


    Current members :

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Knight of Malta Line Infantry(Regimento di Malta - Regiment of Malta)



    Knight of Malta Elite Light Infantry(Regimento di Cacciatori - Regiment of Hunters), Vanilla Helmet Model

    Some of the Army
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    (and Emperor's Cavalry of course...and the usual Vanilla units)



    (done by Ratbag)


    Unit Names will be changed to reflect on the Order's diversity in cultures, with French being dominant in the Order and Italian amongst Maltese
    So :

    Regimento di Malta - Line Infantry
    Regimento di Cacciatori - Light Infantry/Skirmishers
    Cavalleria di Ordine - (Order Cavalry 'till now) Standard Horse Regiment
    Fanteria di Marina/Marinai - Marines
    Chevaliers - Elite Knight Cavalry
    Cheval Garde du General - General's Bodyguards(Knight Guards of the General I think it means)

    If anyone who speaks French can read this...please correct me on my French(I just used the dictionary...)

    Rep anyone who helped in this mod

    Mod will be released when everything's ready(go figure)

    I would wait until Sir Digby releases his top hat skin for this unit before using this model, I've already made him the alternate model mod that would make the model actually work.

    I also have some unit modding talent. I would love to join in this because I'm also quite interested in the Knights of St. John. (or the Hospitaller knights they were previously named)

    Very very lovely flags Caesar, they would look great in the game
    The second version of the Infantry flag looks better imo
    Great job +rep

    Sure Emperor, you're free to join in
    Caesar, want to join in as an official member too?

    K, just find a historical regiment you're interested in and I'll make it, but I'm no skinner, that will be left to someone like Sir Digby or something.

    No prob, I'm Maltese and I'll definetly find some units from the era
    Now I'm trying to put the flags for the campaign but there are several smaller ones from what I have seen
    I'll attach them down here
    Anyone have any experience on inserting campaign flags?
    I know how to put in revolutionary flags, but I don't know how to create a flag folder
    I guess the Campaign maps will just have to stay the same
    But will you do me a favor Caesar?
    Can you put the Flag with the Cross for the Ships and the 4th flag you posted as the infantry banner and send them(or upload them yourself) in a .pack format please?
    Thanks

    I found something Emperor
    See those peasants with muskets at the beginning?
    They could be called Maltese Militia and be added to the Order's roster
    (this is a reenactment of the time of the French occupation of Malta(1798-1800), but they would have still served under the order...and yes...these reenactments are frequent here
    This is a small skirmish between some peasants and some frenchies


    Aaaanndd I found this if it interests you Emperor :

    Le Colonel du Regiment des Chesseurs Grand-Fauconnier du Grand-Maitre. Vue de la Porte Reale.

    And what was this regiment's purpose? Light infantry? Line infantry? I don't know French, but it says "colonel" and "chaseurs" (French light inf. unit in the vanilla game is called that), I'm guessing he's an officer then. And why are all those paintings of Maltese soldiers chatting with animals?
    Also, about the peasants, not sure what model could be possibly used for those. I'll perhaps give them better slightly stats than normal militia. Closest thing to them is the drummer model. Wow, how can you take a nap, that stuff is loud! Of course the reinactment was kind of ruined by that plane overhead.

    Sorry but I don't know how to make folders etc . I use a battle flag mod and just replace the flags in that but they are only battle flags.
    I'm sure it would be np to batman.
    As for joining the team, I'm happy to skin some units for you so long as it's not to many mate
    I tend to skin whatever faction I'm playing ,so Knights are in for now

    Emperor : Yeah, and that's in Imdina(the Silent City...not so silent with frenchies eh?)
    And yeah, I dunno why but Maltese people have always been associated with animals(my friend has a cow, a horse, 3 chickens, 4 rabbits, 2 dogs, 1 cat and lots of pigeons...and he's not even a farmer)
    And yeah that guy is probably some officer of some sort. Don't know any French but I know that Porte Reale is right in front of the Capital's City's gates and he's probably Colonel of Chesseur whatever

    Digby : Thanks, your help is appreciated. The more helpers the merrier
    Maybe Emperor knows something about packing, do you have an Idea on how to place the Flags into a .pack format Emperor...and actually get them in the game?

    Hey an Idea just struck me
    The Maltese Hunters(Cacciatori) were Elite Light Infantry, so could that Colonel whatever dude maybe be their officer?
    That would blend well because both have similiar colour schemes, what do you guys think?

    I also found more units Emperor reference to Knights of Malta, 1048-1799
    The Blue guy is the Commander of the Artillery, the red guy with a horse behind him is the Commander of the Cavalry and the other red guy with a big stone gate behind him is a regular cavalryman...new unit for cavalry maybe?

    Ok here's what I came up with. I think they look better with the right hat even though the coat is now wrong.
    What do you think? (skin in attachment)

    Nice work Chicken! But shouldn't they have handlebar mustaches like the guy in the pic?
    @Son of Odin, I've already seen an officer of the Caccatoni of Malta, he didn't wear that dress.What would work is probalbly reskin "euro_officer_1" for the officer.
    I will work on the cavalry man first, but I would really like to see the regular chasseur troops, although the colonel is helpful. Sir Digby Chicken (or if he gets sick of the job, someone else) will have to do the reskins/ But yea, I have something in mind for the cavalry using the Spanish Guardias de Corps model.
    And about the flags, sorry no. I beleive Spanky woul know, try to find his flag mod in the released mods section.

    Yeah the Cacciatori are way better with the top hats Digby, much more diverse than regular troops, and don't worry Emperor not all Maltese had moustaches
    Ok, I trust that whatever unit you come up with will be nice, in the meantime I'll try to find some Order Chasseur(or how you spell it)
    I'll contact Spanky, he obviously knows how to do that stuff

    Great work guys
    I appreciate the efforts

    Well it would look nice
    But for a dragoon reskin, he'd probably be the commander as he is Le Colonel du Regiment des Chesseurs Grand-Fauconnier du Grand-Maitre. Vue de la Porte Reale(The Colonel of the Regiment of Light Infantry Grand-Fauconnier(dunno what that means) of Grand-Maitre(dunno also). View of Royal Door(the gate of the capital city, Porte Reale)

    But they would look nice for dragoons none the less

    I didn't know he was light infantry (just he was wearing riding boots)
    I use dragoons alot so it would be good to find a skin for them. I looked on that site where the other pictures came from but can't see any (not be able to read what each regiment is don't help )

    Yeah, now I'm noticing his riding boots
    Well yeah I think he'd make dragoon since even his uniform is appropriate(with that stylish helmet and those things on the shoulders

    Do you think you can reskin him or does Emperor have to do a new model for him?
