This is a simple mod I made to make the game tougher. I am not a skilled enough modder to add new aspects to the game, so I apologize for there not being anything new like ships, naval battles, or anything like that. This mod was designed to make some aspects of M&B tougher for the player, and some aspects easier. For example, troops are much, much more difficult to face, but at the same time since the troops are upgraded heavily you will also have control of stronger troops. Other than the tweaks I made to items and etc., this mod is mostly about upping the difficulty of combat. If you play with Campaign and Combat AI set to max, along with maxed out settings for damage, you will be in for a tough ride. It truly makes the game more challenging. For those who want a challenge, but don't want to be brutally beat on, just lower your damage to 1/2 damage for player. You may feel kind of pathetic for doing it, but trust me it is still extremely difficult. You'll still have enemies giving you one shot kills to the head, high damage per swing, etc. This mod was made to give you a challenge, therefore even the lowest level troops are difficult. You may even find yourself struggling against farmers or townsman if you are not experienced.

WARNING: There is a potential downside to this mod, although I consider it to be an upside. Troops are now pretty much equal (Vaegir Archers are no longer better than Nord archers, Swadian Sharpshooters, etc.)(Swadian Knights are no longer superior to Vaegir Knights, Sarranid Marmlukes, etc.). Some may not like this, but I did this to make each and every troop truly difficult to face. While some may consider it a downside, I happen to like it. For example, if you are sticking to the style of playing as Nord and only using Nord troops, you won't be at such a disadvantage against troops that would normally have better archers. Also, your Nord Huscarls won't just mow through the other army's infantry, thus making the game more of a challenge.
