    New Hungarian Armies



    We are proud to present to you the newly overhauled Hungarian Unit Roster! We have worked rigorously over the last weeks to come up with a complete new and more historical accurate roster. Due to some technical issues we have not been able to implement the war wagons by +MR.Crow+ yet, though it has become one of the most unique rosters we have ever created for Italian wars!

    Rebellious Peasants



    We are proud to present to you the Rebellious Peasants of southern Germany. This faction won't be available for campaign gameplay, but you'll be able to play them in our soon release Battle Beta. Their purpose however is to represent the peasants during the German Peasants' War and also to be the shadow faction for the Swabian League. You might have had a quiet live, playing with the Swabian League, but these days are now over!

    Overhauled Balkan

    Thank's to the Tsardoms Modding Team and +Marius+' suggestions we were able to overhaul our Balkan provinces once more. With these changes you will find a more historical and accurate situation on the Balkan theatre. Venice is now in control of the coastal cities of Zara and Spalato, while the Ottomans have been relocated to their territory held in 1492. Hungary can now be found in its historic borders, especially it is now in control of Croatia and Bosnia. Also we created two new settlements 'Ostrovica', the key to Zara and 'Vranduk', an important city situated on the Bosnia River. But enough words, have a look yourself!

    Native Languages

    Thank's to "HaHawk's Native Voices Mod" Ver. 1.0 we were able to add in native voices to almost all factions. Soon we will update/add voices from Empire Total War so that at least the Turkish and Arabic generals/agents reply in their native languages.

    Faction Specific Heir Title


    Granting your heir a specific title to designate him as your successor, was quite a common practise, which we will now take into account for Italian Wars - Ultimate. Learn more about the feature below by the example of the Kingdom of France.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    As you can see, the current heir of the Kingdom of France is granted the title 'Dauphin de France', which was a depiction of the animal on their coat of arms.


    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    As soon as the King of France has died/been killed and the heir becomes now the new King, he losses the title 'Dauphin de France'.


    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    And the title is passed to the new heir.




    This feature will be applied only to certain factions. These are:

    - Holy Roman Empire: King of the Romans


    - Kingdom of Hungary: Joint King of Hungary


    - Kingdom of Naples: Prince of Salerno


    - Ottoman Empire: Vali Ahad


    Expect our next preview on Friday next week.

    Noble families of Venice


    As you may recall, we have already added several royal and noble dynasties to The Italian Wars mod in version 5.0 beta. But one of the most important cities in Italy was still missing, not any more! We are proud to introduce the noble families of Venice! Not only that, we made a significant change to enhance the reality and gameplay flair for all our family dynasties.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    At the begin of your campaign several family members of each dynasty are already ruling your cities.


    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    In case they accept and adopt a new member to the family...


    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    .. he will also take the family's name.




    The noble families of Venice:

    - Barbarigo


    - Grimani


    - Loredan


    - Mocenigo


    - Vendramin


    - Venier


    Expect our next preview on Friday next week.

    New Recruitment System & Buildings


    This is one of the largest changes you will have with Italian Wars - Ulitmate. A complete overhauled recruitment system. Hand in hand with several new buildings to reflect the province's significance and individuality. Our overhaul goal was to make recruitment more realistic. To carve out the faction's strengths and weaknesses. But also to force the player to consider more carefully his campaigns and moves. All in all this will have a huge impact on the gameplay of Italian Wars.


    New Buildings:

    We have added several province specific buildings. You will now find Factories of the Fugger and Welser family, Cattle Markets, Weaponsmiths, Masons, Wool Weavers, Silk Weavers, Patrician Villas and Noble Estates. While the factories, markets and craftsmen will be available only in certain regions known for this kind of craftsmanship or housing a factory of Fugger or Welser. The Patrician Villas and Noble Estates will be available faction specific. For example, you will find a Noble Estates in the Duchy of Savoy, but not in Bologna. There you would rather have a Patrician Villa.

    Here are some pictures to illustrate all this:

    Craftsmen:

    New Recruitment System:

    To have a more realistic recruitment for Italian Wars - Ultimate we decided to abandon our previous approach, where you will have all units available in one to three buildings. You see, back than it was not signing up for military service like it was today. No, you would have several institutions or places from which you had to draw your men and soldiers from. So now you will have the units available in their respective place of origin. You will have your peasantry available at farms, your militias either on a training ground or the city hall. Your knights and nobles will be recruited form their estates and villas, etc.

    Area of Recruitment


    Nothing new to MTW II veterans, but for Italian Wars. An Area of Recruitment system. I think we can all agree that this feature was quite overdue, so here we go. Our AoR will be explained by the example of the Republic of Venice and the Kingdom of France.


    Area of Recruitment - Default Situation:

    Our AoR system consisted of different kind of layers. Layered above each other you will have your available units in a certain province. There are two layers. High tier troops layer and low tier troops layer. The high tier troops layer specifies which high tier units will be available in a certain province. Like knights or highly trained late professionals. The second layer does simply the same only for the low tier troops. A picture says more than a thousand words, so check out the details below:

    In your home province (for our example, Venetia -> Republic of Venice) you will have your complete unit roster available.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    The high tier troops layer is split up in three zones: 'home', 'border' and 'faroff'. So in case you are leaving your home provinces, but you are still near by, you will have the actual AoR units available, along with your low tier troops.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    In case of the low tier troops, their layer only has one zone. Which is depending on the province's culture. For example 'North Italy'. So if you are in a province with this type of influence you will have your low tier troops still available.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    In any case, if you are far beyond your home province you will be in the 'faroff' zone. This means only AoR units available.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 



    Area of Recruitment - Spanish Situation:

    In case you play the Kingdom of Spain, you will face a complete different situation. The Spanish faction is far away from their actual 'home' province Spain. So you are depending on supply by Ships from the Spanish main land. This means you will have your complete roster only available in certain cities with a large enough harbour, like Palermo, Naples, Genoa, Piombino, etc.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    As soon as you move away from your 'precious' harbours you will be in the border zone. This means only low tier and AoR units are available for you. 'Faroff' is the same as the default situation.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Area of Recruitment - Ottoman Situation:

    The Ottoman Situation is quite similar to the one of the Spaniards. The Ottomans do not have an actual foothold in their new provinces. That means, it will be quite hard to recruit your high tier troops. Your high tier troops will be only available in large enough cities, like Sarajevo, Zagreb or Buda.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Even near by, you will only have the local AoR units available.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    But don't you worry. There is of course a way to get some of your troops, even far away from your recruitment centres. Simply, when you build new farms the Sipahi which received this farm land, will become available. No matter in which region, province or zone.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    There is one more unit, which is available through out the complete map. The Akinjis! Recruitable at crossing and roads.

    Specific Faction Leader Titles


    During the first decades of the Italian Wars the main focus was on the Kingdom of Naples and the Duchy of Milan. Of course, you guys already knew that. Though the thing, that annoyed us with all the previous versions was, if your general conquered one of the above named capitals, he would receive the full title. Which of course he would have never received, since he was in the service of a certain king/liege Lord.

    For Italian Wars - Ultimate we decided to 'fix' this inconsistency. Please check out, our latest update - Specific Faction Leader Titles!



    The Scenario - France has conquered the city of Milan

    As you can see, the Kingdom of France has conquered the city of Milan. The general in command receives now the title of Governor-General of Milan.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    While the King of France receives the full title - Duke of Milan
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Yes, it is a rather short preview. Nevertheless an important one, which brings more realism to the Italian Wars.

    This feature will be available for the following factions:


    • Kingdom of France
    • Kingdom of Spain
    • Kingdom of Naples
    • Kingdom of Hungary
    • Holy Roman Empire


    Cities affected by this new feature are:


    • Milan
    • Mantua
    • Ferrara
    • Montferrat
    • Urbino
    • Turin
    • Florence
    • Genoa
    • Venice
    • Ragusa
    • Siena
    • Naples


    You might have noticed that the images for those titles are the same.
    Should they stay the same or should they differ from one another?
