    1403: Kingdom Come
    An Age of Charlemagne Overhaul



    I've been pretty addicted to the new Kingdom Come game and it has really piqued my interest in the time period of the early 15th century. I tried playing a mod for that time period for Medieval 2 but the graphics and gameplay mechanics just dont do it for me anymore so I decided to just make a mod for Age of Charlemagne. The Medieval Kingdoms team is very generous with their awesome assets so I've been working on transforming AOC into the world of Kingdom Come. The best part of this mod is that it will actually be alot easier and faster to work on than other mods I've done because everything needed has already been made, including the battlefield buildings and unit cards.

    I've been doing a lot of research on this time period and there were some really interesting conflicts including the Lancastrian era of the Hundred Years war with battles like Agincourt, the Hussite Wars in Bohemia where gunpowder first came to dominate the european battlefield, the Lombard Wars in Italy that established the great cities of Venice, Milan, Florence, Naples and the Papal states as the regional powers and many others. This mod will only focus on this time period of the 15th century so it will have large and powerful starting armies and cities, 12 turn years and longer research times.

    Features:
    -Sole focus is the first half of the 15th century and providing as historically accurate a recreation as possibly within the game engine
    -12 turns per year
    -Instead of having to research new buildings and units to get more advanced units you will start with the infrastructure to recruit most of the units/ in effect research time will be replaced with class based units and the large sums of money required to recruit and maintain them. Tier 1 units will be commoners, Tier 2 will be professional soldiers and Tier 3 will be Knights and Nobility. There will be some research though that allows you to upgrade certain units to their later 15th century variants using sallets, great bascinets and other age appropriate armor and equipment.

    Unit Roster Plan:

    The new faction rosters will have 4 levels:
    1. Commoners that have been outfitted in light equipment
    2. Professionals that have been outfitted with the heavy equipment
    3. Knights and Nobility with the best equipment money can buy

    These first three will be available from game start and will allow you to recreate an early 15th century army.

    4. You will use the technology tree to research later 15th century equipment to replace the equipment of all the above warrior classes.

    Credits:
    This mod would not even exist without the awesome work of the Medieval Kingdoms team and their amazing modelers and UI developers (Please support their modding project here) and the mind blowing work of the great ArtStudio who created all the building models (Please support his modding projects here).

    Keep checking back in, just going to keep updating this post with new updates! Hoping to have this whole thing done in the next couple months.

    I'm still learning about this time period so any relevant feedback is also appreciated

    Nice mod, love the units. Will you able to add the Hussite religion in Bohemia, perhaps replace the vanilla pagan religion with it?

    I think spears are a bit over-represented. Weren't they largely replaced by polearms and pikes at this point?

    This looks cool. Just wondering, as a contributor to the 1066 mod, are you no longer perusing that one ? If not feel free to use any of the UI stuff I made for it.

    Ya 1066 is still being worked on but right now most of the content being created is by other people who have some skills I lack. When everything is ready I'll put it all together and release it

    Great work! and very interesting campaign!

    A little detail: Girona and Urgell belong to Aragon, Cartagena to Castile and Tudela to Navarra. In case it helps you, take a look to this map.

    Great work! Hoping this wont slow down progress on the Dark Ages though

    I have two separate computers that I'm using to work on both projects at the same time and Fall of the West will be released soon, just putting the finishing touches on it

    The thing that does give this mod some precedence though is that all of the UI is already done for it, with alot of the mods being worked on for Dark Ages I get stuck because I dont have a full time UI guy (or girl) to help me out

    And Radzig will be the starting general for bohemia while Henry is their champion
