    Well, maybe Medieval 2 is going to get its definitive crusades-themed mod after all. If you are to enable real-time battles, that is, which I fervently hope for.
    Are you planning to add any more factions? If so, you could get yourself resources and inspiration from IND. That mod has got an incredibly detailed map and full rosters for most of the factions present, though it does come short in terms of mechanics and overall flavor.

    That all looks like great work! Glad to see a crusades-centered mod in development for such a gem of a game!

    I'm using as the base Holy Land mod which died long time ago but it had interesting ideas and people seemed to like it. Links for download in front page are all dead but the one in the last comment page by absinthia actually works if someone is interested in trying the mod. That mod was an overhaul from the crusades campaign with an enlarged vanilla map with 60 more regions.

    What I'm thinking is keeping most of his work especially units balance, etc as it's already tested and people seemed to like it. So I can focus mostly in other gameplay aspects such as traits, ancillaries and events. And ofc as you can see by the scrennshots I've been working on interface stuff. I'm going to also add immersive voice acting from my Warband mod and some unused lines I kept around.

    And yes this particular mod will ofc have real time battles lol As of now I've replaced Jerusalem/Antioch units with Broken Crescent units. Most of those units are covered by AlphaDelta's policy which allows modders to use the units freely by just being credit. A few of that roster are from strelac so not sure if I can keep them. The unit models for Egypt and Turks roster are AlphaDelta's units so no problem here. The biggest issue are the Byzantines so I don't know if I can use those units. I'm also using their strat map models as of now, as I think we can use and just give credit, at least that's what I understand by an answer giving to someone who ask for them in the forum. I've also seen them in a few other mods. It would be better to just talk to someone of the team about these things it but doesn't seem to be someone active in the forum anymore. If someone can elucidate me about that it would be great. Personally I'd like to use their units exclusively as consistency is important to me, I don't like things that feel out of place.

    For now the factions will be the crusades campaign ones with the change in name for the muslim ones.

    Elendil 03: I did pmed him in Moddb about permissions for his units but I got no answer.

    The unit cards I'm using btw are from Maltacus unit cards submod for BC.

    I'm happy to hear that. Are the models from plain BC or from the Jerusalem submod?

    I've sent Aneirin another PM here and in a German forum he's been active in some time ago, just in case you'd like to add more factions later on - the map would certainly allow for that. The quality of the textures and the amount of polygons in IND's models should not be that different from each other.

    I didn't knew that submod but apparently the file is missing from the download link.

    Well, there's a functioning DL link in the "submods" subforum: http://www.mediafire.com/file/kttwxr...Alpha.zip/file

    Thanks. Well the units I'm not much interested, however what I really found interesting is the Grandmaster feature as I was already thinking about something like that. But I've made a Templar model for battle and strat in the style of BC Jerusalem general. Well it's not really a new model, I just replaced the Jerusalem general textures surcoat with a Templar one. I'll use the script and I'll actually do the same thing for the Hospitallers but is Antioch who get them instead.

    I've also changed my mind regarding keeping HL game balance, I'll instead use Broken Crescent units balance. The recruitment system will be something similar to what I did in Aurei Imperii just with a different implementation.

    Will you use the script that replaces settlement names according to the faction holding it?
    Btw: There's a typo on you first screenshot in the name of Beirut.

    Nah, too much work (especially as it needs a lot of research) lol I didn't even did that for Aurei Imperii wich would be even more interesting.

    Yeah I'll fix the typo.

    Looks great! Are you going to make the scripts for edu ebu and desr_strat so that they are more balanced? If you have any questions then please let me know.

    I realized I actually downloaded an alpha version of Jerusalem Rising when there is actually a 1.0 one from last year. I'll take a look at it, however I don't know if I'll actually continue this mod as there isn't much interest in it apparently.

    The idea is to overhaul everything.

    If it will be completed and released, I'd be interested. But unless I was involved in developing it, I wouldn't show up much until that's the case.
