    I love you, JFD. I loved this scenario already, it's going to be fantastic with BNW/GNK mechanics.

    So that's why you just released a new Normandy civ. :)

    I honestly didn't think a war-only scenario could be improved (mainly because it's just war), but you have proved me wrong. This sounds amazing! :D


    And remember, if you need any suggestions for an Into the Renaissance Deluxe Scenario, just send me a PM ;)

    Quick update; thanks to Tarcisio for pointing out some of the problems.

    • Added a couple of Composite Bowman for Scotland's start
    • Fixed an issue where Normandy, Anglo-Saxons, and Scotland embarkation graphics were Longboats
    • Removed some of the roads leading from York to nowhere, which were otherwise just wasting gold
    • Replaced Norway's starting Bersekers with Viking Raiders. (oversight)
    • Scotland now receives extra gold instead of new recruits every so often (like Anglo-Saxons)
    • Fixed an issue where the Shire Court could not be constructed. (oversight)

    I wonder: what do I need a spy for? Research is disabled, and rigging CS elections would be a bit... Inaccurate...
    Also: you really need to release an expansion pack. You basically revise the entire game.

    Hail the Modempire! Hail His Modimperial Modesty! Hail the JFDeus!

    Why inaccurate? Foreign envoys always could ensure a petty ruler's loyalty. And the singe spy could help out with line of sight during sieges, and to scout out if the enemies build Shire Courts.

    Feedback!(played until mid game with Scotland, then started a game as Normandy)

    Suggested changes:
    Not everyone should be locked at war with each other. Sweyn shouldn't be at war at the start of the game, Norway and Scotland aren't supposed to be fighting with each other.

    Scotland
    UA: Scottish Clans
    Enemies gain no :c5strength: defensive bonuses against your units. Units gain extra :c5strength: combat strength and XP while fighting from\on a hill.

    UI: Clan Castle
    +2 :c5gold: gold. Reduces the :c5production: production and :c5gold: gold cost of units by 15% when worked.

    UU: War Band
    Replaces longswordsman. does not require iron.

    Normandy
    UA: Castle builders
    Melee units may build Motte and Baileys at the same time it takes workers to build forts. :c5occupied: Conquered cities experience no resistance time and start with a castle.

    UU: Supermarine Horsefighter
    Replaces knight. Unlocked at Civil service. Provides double flanking bonus, and has no penalty vs. Cities.

    I’m so excited to try this! A couple months ago I tried to play the original one for the first time. I was about to be attacked by a menacing-looking Huscarl and I thought I was in big trouble. But it only did 5 points of damage which I thought was rather tame . . . until I realized the scenario was still using the 10HP system and my unit was half dead :( When I get home from work, I’ll have to throw on Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song and give this a spin. EDIT: Or Jethro Tull's Broadsword, depending on who I'm playing as.

    Don't use Normandy. Its underpowered. Use Norway. Its the opposite.

    JFD, again, why Normandy can't train their unique knights?

    When a MOD says it references another MOD is that MOD included or is it recommended to use it.

    It means if you enable that mod it'll load first (necessarily to make it compatible). You neither need it nor is it included.

    As England, I have had no invasion from either Denmark or Normandy. What could cause this?
