    Update: Thanks to HUGE help by Gigantus in many issues regarding scripting and mapping and _tartaros_'s constant efforts developing the mod we are in data 0.92.5 (aka 5 patches that fixed found bugs).
    So far 50 turns with only one random CTD (that happens in all mod and espesialy TGC that has to hundle a huge and high detailed map because of the narrow geographical world area it covers).
    _tartaros_ and Gigs made finall tuches in local populations.
    TGC may be the 1st mod in M2TW/Kingdoms that local population simply does not disapear when a region is conquered. In many mods to recruit faction's units the player has to imply his culture. In TGC before the player's culture reaches a certain point he can recruit local populations. That idea came straight from MTW-1 with an other idea that mercenaries can not hired on the road. You need a brothel that will have to develop to an Inn and if time (via events) is right certain mercenaries can be found there and drafted! BEWARE though..No money no honey! If you will have no money all mercenaries will leave your armies everywhere!

    A huge thanks to both _tartaros_ and Gigantus.
    More news soon as Razor was kind to create 12 unique heads to help us create new units.

    Learn. I didn't know how to do anything when I got this game, and now I know how to do quite a bit. Volunteer. Struggle. Figure it out.
    There are lots of cool mods that never see the light of day because people don't realize that mods need workers, not watchers, or realize it but continue to watch anyway.

    Thank you both.
    Razor created some real "criminal" faces and in 2 of them we added a longed 3d beard.

    That face with a bit darker face skin can be easily added to Arabic models as well.

    For the 1st time in my modding attempts (after testings) the head hood would be the same padded material as the armor:

    Thanks. Razor created some real "criminal" authentic heads!

    Italian militias (4 units) were among the eariest units made.But now we need them for Pope and Venice and as Italian rebels so a re work was needed to make them same quality with the rest of units.
    Their 8 heads and much material will be added LATER to Lombards that also are among the oldest unit made for TGC.

    Looks like a movie mafioso. But, who of us wouldn't like to shoot a couple of cops with their crossbows in Medieval 2?

    Early tests of new Italian Militia crossbowmen.
    While all animation stages are not visible in this picture:

    1 stretch the bow's string
    2 place the bolt on the crossbow
    3 lift the crossbow
    4 aim
    Nottice that bolts are on the crossbows
    After step 1 there is a move that the soldier takes the bolt from its quiver.

    I had too many years to exersise my bow string models creation.
    So in order to recreate the Italian militias i started from their crossbow ones.
    A closer look of the unit (still WIP)



    In the picture nottice few of the new animation changes made by markhaselb.


    And finally what enemy will last see before his death is this.
