Description and Background
This is a submod for Darthmod: NTW. Its purpose is to historically depict the Saxon Army of 1806, before the 1810 military reforms. Vanilla mixed together 1806 and 1810 units, not caring about historical accuracy. While this mod will not include the 1810 units, the 1806 units will give you plenty to choose from. Overall, there are 11 completely new units, in addition to 7 vanilla units which were modified to look more realistic. New unit cards were also created. As a result, this mod contains several custom-made textures and meshes, previously unavailable in vanilla. If demand is high enough, I am willing to make an 1810 mod at some point in the future.
This mod emerged out of a personal desire for a more historically accurate Saxony, especially the Saxony of 1806, which opposed Napoleon’s Grande Armée, ultimately paying the price for defiance with utter defeat. Upon choosing which mod I would make this submod for, I decided Darthmod would be the best fit. Not only have I been a long-time follower of Darth’s various mods, I have always felt I owed him my gratitude for the hours of fun I enjoyed thanks to his laborious work. Thus, as a sort of “thank you,” this submod will now be released for Darthmod.
Regarding Naming Issues
You will notice that I assigned no special regiment names to the various musketeer and grenadier units. They will only be distinguished through their unit colors, based on real historical regiment colors. Had I restricted these units’ numbers historically, and given them their proper regimental designations, the player would only be able to build one army. Given the fact that the player will ultimately conquer provinces, however, I had to eliminate such a restriction. Hence, the player may extrapolate for himself what the Saxon Army might have looked like had Saxony actually become a superpower, by constructing his own regiments based on historical color schemes. Below you will find a naming guide:
Green: Prinz Friedrich August; von Low
Red: Churfürst; Sänger
Light Blue: Prinz Xaver; von Bevilaqua
Dark Blue: Prinz Anton; Prinz Clemens
Yellow: Prinz Maximilian; von Thümmel
Pink: von Rechten; von Niesemeuschel
There rest you will just have to make up as you go along.

Other Important Information
Place the two pack files into your NTW data folder, and add the following lines to your user.script:

Information for Fellow Modders
To my best knowledge, all textures, meshes, etc., were modified either from vanilla or Darthmod. However, if for some reason you feel like some part of your original work was accidentally used by me without permission, please let me know as soon as possible.
If you want to use any of my files for your mod (units, textures, meshes, etc.), please contact me via PM.
My sincere gratitude goes to Darth and the whole Darthmod team. I would also like to extend special thanks to Steph, who helped me whenever I got stuck.
Limitations of this Mod
Sadly, it is impossible to be completely historically accurate. Some things just simply were not moddable to the degree I would have liked, mainly due to game limitations, others due to my own limitations. Thus, I often had "to make do" with the resources I had available. I hope this will not detract from enjoying this mod, however.

Bump for a awesome mod.
Well thank you there, Ferdiad. Have you tried it yet?
Nah, that NTW is a bit boring IMO. Looks good though.
It is time to include the submod in the upcoming DarthMod Napoleon.
I will edit what is necessary to fit right.
Thank you friend Diamat for this work.
