    Icon10 Renaissance Pike and Shot submod for SSHIP



    This submod for SSHIP provides new textures, skins, and unit officers for late-period pike-and-shot era units of the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Although the colors and military standards used are not entirely historically accurate, this can be enhanced with further submods and releases. The new material is taken entirely from The Italian Wars mod for M2TW (a permission link is given below).

    Furthermore, although changes have been made to the export_descr_unit file, the mod should be entirely save-game compatible with your current SSHIP campaign! Let me know if there's any technical issues you may have with the mod.

    PRE-INSTALLATION ADVICE:
    If you haven't done this already, I would advise backing up your Stainless Steel mod somewhere on your computer or on an external hard drive. You never know what could go wrong! Perhaps you accidentally put it in the wrong place. Who knows? It's just a wise decision.

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
    1) Download the .rar file
    2) Locate and open the .rar file on your computer with 7zip, WinRar, or any other software program allowing you to unzip files
    3) Direct the file to the "SS6.3" folder (i.e. Stainless Steel), which should be placed within the "mods" folder of your main "Medieval II Total War" folder.
    4) It should ask you to overwrite files. Simply click yes. If it did not ask you to overwrite files, that means you did something wrong!
    5) Enjoy the newly-skinned units and officers!

    Pikeshot ftw


    Will this offer a full on renaissance scenario start or just the units?

    The only changes here involve unit skins, textures, and models, plus some new officers. While it dramatically changes the look of your army on the battle map, the submod does not include any new campaign features. You still have to start a campaign in either the 12th or 13th centuries, unfortunately, which means hundreds of turns before you can even begin to recruit these units (starting around the year 1420 for some of them, but certainly not all of them, which comes after the year 1500). Perhaps in the future someone will make a worthy submod that starts in 1450 or thereabouts, but for now this is what we have! Besides, I'm not savvy enough to mod the game and create new campaigns.
