    Thank's for your praise!

    Though I have to say that you are quite lucky, since it is only a beta

    That is an interesting question, well, there are surely several. I fear I can only help you with lecture...

    An overview would be this one here: https://www.amazon.de/Italian-Wars-1.../dp/0582057582
    Which I have based most of the events/script on.

    Classical topics would be of course Machiavelli(Art of War, History of Florence, Discorsi) and of course Francesco Guicciardini

    Of course there are plenty of more titles

    Best regards,

    I don't know if this is a thing everyone do or not, but I always install the games as Administrator (right click on .exe, Run as Administrator). Not running the installer as the Administrator seem to be one of the main culprits behind many of the crashes when it comes to Third Age: Divide and Conquer, so it might be related.

    Thanks. I found this audio lecture from York Uni. on Machiavelli.

    Learn and play at the same time. If you have more topics you find interesting and relevant, feel free to share because I know very little. This is after my primary historical period (13-15th century, Western-Northern-Europe).

    ~Wille
    Thorolf was thus armed. Then Thorolf became so furious that he cast his shield on his back, and, grasping his halberd with both hands, bounded forward dealing cut and thrust on either side. Men sprang away from him both ways, but he slew many. Thus he cleared the way forward to earl Hring's standard, and then nothing could stop him. He slew the man who bore the earl's standard, and cut down the standard-pole. After that he lunged with his halberd at the earl's breast, driving it right through mail and body, so that it came out at the shoulders; and he lifted him up on the halberd over his head, and planted the butt-end in the ground. There on the weapon the earl breathed out his life in sight of all, both friends and foes. [...] 53, Egil's Saga
    I must tell you here of some amusing tricks the Comte d'Eu played on us. I had made a sort of house for myself in which my knights and I used to eat, sitting so as to get the light from the door, which, as it happened, faced the Comte d'Eu's quarters. The count, who was a very ingenious fellow, had rigged up a miniature ballistic machine with which he could throw stones into my tent. He would watch us as we were having our meal, adjust his machine to suit the length of our table, and then let fly at us, breaking our pots and glasses.

    Hi, can someone tell me where to hire the Schwyz elite pikemen in 5.0 beta? I've been playing as the Swiss, fully upgraded the city of Bern, but still can't find it!

    Many thanks!

    Ah, I fear that is mistake with the export_descr_building file.
    This kind of problem appears to the Swabian League as well.

    Anyway, if you could send me your export_descr_building file, I'll fix it for you
    And no worries, it was already fixed for the Ultimate version.

    Of course you can. Go to the advanced options and look for the paperclip sign

    Hmm.. France or Spain are quite easy to begin with, I guess.
    Ottomans, should also be an easier one.

    No you did not, it is simply because they are not included in this version.
    You see, it is just a beta

    Hi! I tried it on, and now I can recruit Bern City Guards from Bern, but still no Schwyz elite pikemen anywhere

    Yes it did! Now I'm enjoying wrecking everything around me with my elite Swiss pikemen

    Always loved the quality and precision of the Swiss! Until recently I didn't know this extended to warfare!

    Hi Aneirin, I've seen your preview of the Specific Faction Leader Titles. Looks very interesting. A short question: don't you think that having separate ancillarier for those cities block the place for the other ancillaries for an FM? In most my games the limit of 8 is met very soon (if the ancillaries are meaningful for the game you want to give many of them to the FL for him to buff him up). Besides, what happens if there's no space for an ancillary and a settlement is taken?
    BTW - images of ancillaries for all the catholic factions should be the same. It's always the same city.
    For those who want to play a historical mod in a medieval setting:
    try either the Titanium, the Stainless Steel Historical Improvement Project + minimods,
    or the Broken Crescent + Buff and Shine submod.

    Thank you Jurand!
    That is a good question indeed. Though, it won't be a big deal. You see, we don't have that many 'meaningful' ancillaries for factionleaders.
    As I recall, there are only two? King of Spain and one I cannot remember right now.
    If the limit is met, it happens nothing at all. The general in the city gets his governor title, that's it.
    In the end of course, only testing will prove what is feasible

    Thank's for your opinion.
