    The mod is going, but very slowly and when time permits. Any help would be much appreciated.

    What kind of help are you after?

    Modelling of units and modelling of buildings and related tasks such as enabling the units for the mod in model.db.

    I expect Monti, Gigantus and myself can manage almost everything else, as long as we can find the time. But we have no expertise in the way of modelling anything.

    Other help could be about 17th century unit names, character names, major settlements with demographic data (how many Christians, how many Muslims, Jews, etc), character portraits, trade and commerce info (what was produced where), that kind of thing. We have some info for Romania and thereabouts, bits of the Ottoman Empire and Greece but there are many other factions in the mod for which we do not have good info, especially the Slavic factions, Tatars and Barbary Corsairs. Although the Italian factions and the Knights of Malta are easier, if anyone has a particular expertise in one of the Italian factions, any such info would be very much appreciated.

    Perhaps Monti or Gigantus could add to the list of tasks for which help is needed.

    I'm not modeler unfortunately but I am doing a double major in History (Specifically Classical Roman, Early Colonial/Early Modern History (Post the Treaty of Westphalia) and the Napoleonic Era) and English so I might be able to help with some of the research if you'd like? If could I get a list of the factions and the specifics you're after for each of them I could see what I can find on a couple of them, you can PM me with said details if you like. I have access to a wide variety of scholarly sources through my university, so I'm sure I could dig up some useful bits and pieces, given that I'm on holidays though I will be limited, particularly regarding books, in what I can acquire, but fortunately allot of stuff is digitized!

    Thank you for the offer to help with research. The factions currently planned are here:

    www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?594934-1648-The-Two-Towers&p=12717924&viewfull=1#post12717924

    Some are more important than others. We certainly need some allies for the Turks, so the Crimean Tatars and the Barbary Corsairs are definitely in.

    There are various Slavic factions for which we have no info. At least I don't but maybe Monti can find something.

    There are several Italian factions about which we can find info more easily but it is still hard work. I even had trouble finding information on Venice. The Italian factions may be easier, though, so you could pick one of these.

    The information we need is described here: www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?594934-1648-The-Two-Towers&p=12718578&viewfull=1#post12718578

    We also need:
    Demographic data for main cities. Not sure which we are including but the really major will be in (Venice, Genoa, Rome, Padua, etc). How many Catholics, Protestants, Muslim, Orthodox, Jews, approximately.
    What is being produced where. E.g. Tangiers: slaves. Calabria: olive oil. That kind of thing.
    Names: I have, for example, about 70 contemporary names for Venice but I have not worked on other Italian factions. These should preferably be names of generals, heads of state or high ranking officials not just any old Italian name. Names of real proper princesses not of famous harlots, village girls, someone's grandma, etc.
    Names of units and uniforms, maybe also contemporary 17th C drawings showing some kind of soldier.

    Another possible contribution would be portraits of some key figures from a particular faction that we could include in the mod. Sometimes one can find these online but not always. We must also remember that the portraits do not find on their own their way to the internet.

    Another possible contribution could be some particular special building. For example: Corfu: Venetian Admiralty. Experience bonus for naval units recruited here. Padua: University. Tax bonus.

    Hey Neadal, denke zwar das wir im Infracta Forum vielleicht etwas einfacher kommunizieren könnten, aber auch hier danke für das Angebot

    Ich denke das ne Menge Stuff aus DIK interessant wäre für die italienischen Fraktionen etc.

    Abgesehen davon können wir natürlich jeden Modder mit Erfahrung gebrauchen

    Well, now I see why you are so interested in stuff from TIW.
    There are plenty of Italian faction in your little list

    Just drop me a message (@ Infracta) and tell me what I can do

    If you still have problem with unit model i believe that there is a mod based on the same time period as your actual project maybe you could ask the authors if you could borrow some of their model, here is a link to a forum where the author seem to visit often (however the forum is in russian as are the mod authors i believe) : http://imtw.ru/forum/1175-%D0%BE%D0%...D0%BE%D0%BC-2/

    I'm assuming this is dead...oof.

    Such a shame, because all the units for the time period they were going for with this alreday existed. For pretty much most of the factions there was the "With Fire and Sword 2" mod. Worst case scenario for the Italian factions, you could borrow from the Italian Wars mod.

    There has been sporadic work on it but real life doesn't permit full engagement at the moment.
