 Morning Sun
In Morning Sun, players can now contact and gain wealth with Korea, or play as Korea and unite both sides of the Sea of Japan under one ruler. With its new release, Korea and Japan are linked via the So clan Tsushima Island. Korea’s military situation also reflects the historical reality in this mod’s starting time-frame.

 Paeninsula Italica II
Paeninsula Italica II is a hosted mod for Medieval II: Total War. With a campaign starting in 338BC, the mod is set during the time when Rome had yet to take control of Italy, let alone its later Empire. As well as removing anything medieval from the game, the mod adds historical factions and new units to match, along with other features such as more realistic seasonal effects and traits representing the Cursus Honorum.
