    Overview / Introduction


    First of all; this is not a mod, this is a "mod pack" project. Our Mod Pack's name is "Ottoman: For the Love of Sultans".
    This mod pack consists of 5 independent mods/scenarios in it. (Like Kingdoms pack, that consists of 4 independent scenarios/campaigns; which named: Britannia, Americas, Teutonic and Crusades).
    The main difference is; every new mod starts with the time period, where the previous mod finishes.
    I mean, the following mod's starting year is also the end date of the previous mod.
    Every mod have it's own map, and this map grows with every next mod.
    The 1st map includes only the Marmara and Aegean regions of Anatolia (the establishment) and the 5th mod's map covers 3 continents (Europe, Asia and Africa) that the Ottoman dynasty reigns at 1566...


    1st Mod:

    Establish the Empire

    The periods of; Osman Ghazi, Orhan Ghazi and the Anatolian Principalities
    (1281 - 1362 AD)



    2nd Mod:

    Grow the Empire

    The periods of; Sultan Murad 1 and Sultan Bayezid 1 (a.k.a. Yıldırım Bayezid)
    (1362 - 1402 AD)



    3rd Mod:

    Repair the Empire

    The periods of; Sultan Mehmed 1, Sultan Murad 2 and the "Ottoman Interregnum"
    (1402 - 1451 AD)

    The Ottoman Interregnum (a.k.a. Ottoman Triumvirate) began in 1402, when chaos reigned in the Ottoman Empire following the defeat of Sultan Bayezid 1 by the Turco-Mongol warlord Timur (Tamerlane).
    Although Sultan Mehmed 1 was confirmed as sultan by Tamerlane, his brothers refused to recognise his authority. Civil war was the result...



    4th Mod:

    The Conquest

    The period of Sultan Mehmed 2 (a.k.a. Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror) and the fall of Constantinople.
    (1451 - 1481 AD)



    5th Mod:

    Expand the Empire

    The periods of; Sultan Selim 1 and Sultan Suleyman 1 (a.k.a. Suleiman the Magnificent)
    (1512 - 1566 AD)

    Sultan Selim 1, the first Ottoman Sultan to assume the title of Caliph of Islam...
    Suleiman personally led Ottoman armies to conquer the Christian strongholds of Belgrade, Rhodes and most of Hungary before his conquests were checked at the Siege of Vienna in 1529...

    PORTRAITS
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Byzantine:

    Portraits were still under construction!!!
    We used real Byzantine Emperor portraits, like; Constantine 1, Constantine 2, Constantine 11,
    Basil 1, Komnenos, Andronikos 3, Justinian 1 and Nikephoros 1 etc.

    All prepared in Photoshop, been masked, colorized and also alpha channels been formed.



    Ottoman:

    Portraits were still under construction!!!
    They were still in progress, but we wanted to show them also. We prepared turcomans, ghazis
    and alperens detailly; because in M2TW "The Turks" was shown like Arabic. We wanted to correct this misunderstanding with these portraits.
    We are not Arabic like people and below is the true portraits of the Ottoman Dynasty and the Turks...



    The portraits of the Ottoman preview above, is only the beginning. Sultan portraits are not the final versions. I'll change some sultan portraits with the better alternates. I used realistic "Sultana" (sultan's mother) illustrations in this portraits like Mihrimah Sultana, Hürrem Sultana (a.k.a. Roxelana) and Kösem Sultana. I share these portraits with you, just to give you an idea of what they really look like when finished...

    I still prepare the Ottoman Portraits and made some changes in the ghazis, turcomans etc. I prepared the alternate portraits and increased the numbers of them. Below is the last version of the turcoman, ghazis and alperen (generals) portraits;

    Thanks my friend. I'm a fan of your minimods. Would you want to support our mod? We need an orijinal loading bar and interface designs. I wanted to add a "special to Ottoman" loading bar, like your "illuminated loading bar" design. What do you say, my friend?
