If you want to use the amazing Dark Age graphics mod, Ha3481 created a compatibility version called "Graphic Modpack for VC" available at his Nexus page under "optional files": Nexusmods.com

The install instructions are simple to combine the mods:
1) Install VC Balance Mod.
2) Install ha3481's Dark Age Graphic Modpack from his nexus page
3) Install the compatibility file from Balance Mod's nexus page

Do I install these all into the modules folder? I just purchased VC I want to have these all installed before I start a game.

You unzip them into modules\Viking Conquest, which in my installation is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MountBlade Warband\Modules\Viking Conquest . If you run into any problems here are some detailed install directions: Nexusmods.com

If you are combining Balance Mod with Dark Age, make sure to follow the order of the three steps above (since you'll be overwriting files at each step, you have to do it in that exact order). And make sure to use the compatibility version of Dark Age that Ha3481 posted at nexus (the ones he put here at ModDB are not compatible).

I will consider tieing it to an in-game option in the next version, perhaps wounds. But the next version sadly won't be out for a long time. There is always the 7.0 version on nexus from before horse slowing was added.

However, Balance Mod's implementation of horse slowing is softer than Diplomacy, and horses don't appreciably slow down until they are pretty close to death. I like playing as cavalry myself, is it bothering you that much?
