I'm creating a mod for Beyond the Sword depicting the Eastern European struggles against the Ottoman Empire (and each other) from the ~late 14th to ~mid 17th centuries, a time period otherwise known as the Renaissance. The purpose of this mod will be to re-enact the various battles and disputes between the Eastern Europeans (largely fighting for Christianity and/or their own national existance) and the Ottoman Empire, which is looking to expand. In addition to an all-new tech tree that spans this time period (with some elements of specialized or individualized techs), there will also be many unique units for the "main" factions each with their strengths and weaknesses. Global events will also be a key part to the scenario, and will improve historical accuracy by depicting certain events such as the two Battles of Kosova, the Siege of Belgrade, the Battles of Varna and Vaslui, the fall of Constantinople, and others. This mod is currently in the planning stages, although I do have the foundations for some interesting concepts already coded (such as the beginning of a Janissary system only available to the Turks). I know I could use help because this project is so large, it would simply take too long for one person to do himself. I know I could use help with filling up the tech tree, for instance! Currently, this is the list of factions I have planned. Tunch Khan has provided some support and ideas which I hope he will expand on and lead us in an accurate historical direction. Factions (subject to change): 1) Kingdom of Naples (King Alfonso of Aragon) 2) Papal States (Pope Nicholas V, Pope Pius II) 3) Venetians (Venetian Senate) 4) Albania (Gjergj Kastrioti) [Dark Red] 5) House of Austria (Habsburgs) 6) Kingdom of Hungary (Janosh Hunyadi) 7) Kingdom of Poland (Wladislaus III) 8) Grand-Duchy of Lithuania (Vytautas) 9) Moldavia (Stefan cel Mare) 10) Principality of Wallachia (Mihai Viteazul) 11) Serbia (Djuradj Brankovich) 12) Bosnia (Stefan Tvrtko I) 13) Byzantine Empire (Constantine XI) 14) The Golden Horde (Edigu) 15) Khanate of Crimea (Haci I Giray) 16) Karaman Sultanate (Alâeddin Ali Bey) [Karaman Blue] 17) The Ottoman Empire (Murad II, Mehmet II) [White] The following map gives the rough geographic scope of this mod: Nothing is set in stone, although I do have a pretty good idea of where I want to go with this. For example, plans for individual victory conditions. However, I am open to new ideas and there is alot I don't know, but would like to learn. If you can offer assistance or advice, please do so! If I've done something wrong, let me know! Ideas and suggestions are welcome Here is the current technology tree I have, that definitely needs to be polished: As can be seen, the mid-late game technologies need work. Relevant buildings for the time period need improvement. Any and all ideas are welcome.
