[1.21, fixed bug regarding rhodoks, is savegame compatible w/ 1.2; if you already downloaded 1.2, then simply download patch here: instead and overwrite old file in modules folder]

Compatible with Diplomacy 3.2 and Warband patch 1.132 (may not entirely work with save games from earlier versions).

- Added overhand spear animation for spear and shield users.*
- Add script to make lancers switch to sidearm when dismounted or in close melee.
- Removed horses from Rhodok and Nord lords.
- Differentiated faction unit types more, while trying to keep to the feel of the original.
- Related to above, troops re-statted with encouraging teamwork in mind.
- Rebalanced all factions to be more equal, both for AI and for people.
- Increased difficulty significantly of fighting AI troops (i.e. they can be quite difficult now).
- Lowered costs and training times for raising troops, to make it more fair with how fast the AI recruits.
- Renamed faction units to give more unique semi-historical flavor.
- Regularized weapons so you know what weapon what troop will have, for better tactical planning.
- Slightly regularized gear so units have somewhat of a more uniform appearance, but not too much.
- Split troops into “regulars/peasants” (who max at level 21) and “elites/nobles” (who max at level 28).
- Attempted to make upgrade tree more sensible, or justify it with in-game culture where possible.
- Added more unit types, each faction now has 4 units plus a recruit/village base unit.
- Rebalanced AI war parties on the map to use new units.
- Removed upgrading of gear for multiplayer (is more fair this way in my personal opinion).
- Added more mercenary units and improved existing mercenary stats
- Added small amounts of mercenary units to factional armies
*Note: The new spear animation replaces the overswing for all 1H Weapons. If you don't like it, just copy the actions.txt file from Native into the mod folder you installed this into. This will set the overswing back to normal, but instead the spears will chop down with a onehand attack, which looks sort of funny but at least lets them keep two attacks with a shield.

See thread on forums here: for unit stats and gear.
To install, simply extract to M&B Warband modules folder.
