Post news RSS Release Info & credits

Brave New World is a single-player modification for Warband. The theme is low-steampunk / high-Victorian. You'll be able to join sides with many factions across the globe. Take up arms with the Mahdist forces of the Sudan against the Imperialist British invaders, or drive deep into Central Asia with the Tzar confronting the Khanate of Khiva. The choice is yours.

***Sceners & Coders needed***

send me a PM if you an help - it's mostly just implementing open source codes


The modification wouldn't be possible without the Following people as I only did a small percentage of the models/textures in game.
*NOTE*There are many people to credit / thank so if i have forgotten any, please send me a message or post on the wall. I started it awhile back so I may have missed a few. There are also some models in here that i dont have permission due to them not responding- of course, I will credit them nonetheless. If you find your models in here and don't like it, et me know i will take down the link.

Bugs & Issues

[WIP]Some village borders may have incorrect terrain borders (forgive me there are too many to check)
[WIP]Some villages scenes may even be totally out of place (very few)
[BUG]Gran Colombia only has two 4 properties, for some reason Kalmarunion owns it's other two (startpos problem)
[WIP]Some factions really lack attention: Boers (scenes), Qing (roster), and Manchuria (scenes)
[BUG]Some villages have been known to CTD at a certain time of day: Tismirr, Khevsureti (really wanted to do a custom scene for this one), Konosha
[WIP]Some Castle guard's uniforms don't correspond with the faction (due to replacing factions and my laziness)
[BUG]Nisporeni Castle has no scene/props (sorry Vistula) somehow castle_88 doesnt exist

Make the option of starting off as a leader of a faction if you want to, this has been done before, and please consider adding in Irish Rebels, for there has been countless uprisings in Irish History.

For some reason this sounds eerily similar to that Victorian Era 1860 mod.
