    Henry III had been succeeded by Edward I by the time our mod starts and Henry VIII would ascend 200 years after the start off our time frame. However we won't try to steer history precisely so that this happens and there are no plans to include the reformation.

    We aim to make the game as realistic as possible at the start with historical trends maintained over the short term. As the game goes on the state of the campaign will inevitably drift away from the historical record. After 200 years (800 turns) the state of affairs would probably be unrecognisable and so scripted historical events would not occur in context.

    We are focused on the events in the late 13th and early 14th centuries although the player will be able to continue long after this period.

    There isn't one.

    Kingdom of the Isles has yet to be released. We expect it will be ready between 2011 and 2015. Probably.

    (however Kingdom of the Scots is available here).

    The map is the big hold-up?
    For my own self I think more than OK to use the vanilla units for the first release, after that you have all the time you need to redo/polish/change them. Just a thought.

    The map is a massive undertaken because we are attempting the highest degree of accuracy possible. Every major summit in Britain will be present and hopefully recognisable.

    Also we are using 12 climates (each with its own texture set) and a reworked system for generating battlemaps.

    The other major area that requires work is scripting.

    The more ambitious we get the longer it will take but the result will be worth it I believe!

    I would be surprised if we did not release something next year though.

    What is the significance of the royal burghs? Market towns can build better markets etc but what difference is a royal burgh?

    Is this based Julian or Gregorian Calendar? I'm sure the mayans had no idea of the existence of these. Anyway 2012 is pure fantasy only.

    As with Market Towns, Royal Burghs are trade related towns. Any town that is not one of these will not be allowed to progress further than village trader. From memory we were creating an ancillary for Royal burghs such as a "baillie" who oversaw this office and burgh.

    Are we getting a second preview on 22.12.2010? ^^ This is without a doubt one of the Top 5 mods that I'm anticipating.

    Perhaps a little bit later than that. Early new year may see a preview of the UI which is not far from completion. A map preview is planned soon after but I could not say when exactly.

    This is one of the first sites I check whenever I go online (e-mail, bank, kingdom of the isles) so thought it was about time I regestered to show my support. The mods looking great can't wait to try it out, keep up the good work.

    If this mod is still active, can you somehow add clan Cameron to factions too?
    "In stone halls they burn their great fires,
    in stone halls they forge their sharp spears.
    Whilst I walk alone in the mountains,
    with no true companion but tears.
    They hunt me with dogs in the daylight,
    they hunt me with torches by night."

    They'll have clan units floating around the highlands in the mod, but they will not be a playable faction.
