Long, longtime player of all MTW mods and lurker here on TW forums but just recently joined up officially. I've been playing Stainless Steel since the early days and have tweaked and re-tweaked my own version of SS 6.4 to meet my exacting historical and graphical tastes. But I have to say - from what I've learned about this mod I am SO impressed by the level of detail and research that is going into this groundbreaking mod.. I am overwhelmed by it all. It almost sounds too good to be true! In particular I am really excited about the new additions for the Italian city states, representing the commune government system, Condottiere mercenaries etc. (I'm a huge fan of this particular chapter of medieval history) And don't even get me started on the new Norman unit roster.. absolutely freakin fantastic. Pacco's shields.. I could go on and on.
I know you guys have heard all the fanboy back-patting and 'reps' a million times before, but I just wanted to emphasize sincerely from the heart that I truly think this will be the mod to end all mods for Total War and I congratulate you wholeheartedly on raising the bar so high with this work.
