Sparta a mod for Mount & Blade: Warband, created by zedpaolo.
Description (in author’s own words):
Greece 431 B.C.
The war between Sparta and Athens involves almost all the greek city-states, split in two opposed alliances:
the Pelopponnesian League and the Delian League .
The Pelopponnesian League
The Delian League
-Historical characters and lords
-Player can choose if to start the campaign as the really existed ruler of one of these nations
-Hundreds of new Items
-The flag of the ruler is the flag of every vassal (also for the player)
-Each faction has special parties' icons changing with the amount of men in the party.
If you are not a king you may choose the icon for your party . If you are king, you may choose the culture, which changes both icons and troops.
-Special icons for player's party depending on the size of the army
-A big fancy new map of the area of interest
-Voice and order sounds
-New companions and new mercenaries
-New troops for each faction
-AOR recruit system for historically accurate cities' hoplites: There will be many hoplites which can be recruited only in their city, for example Argos' Hoplites will be available for the player as special units to recruit with weekly refill only in Argos...But that is not all, as also the AI Lord who is owning Argo will receive Argos Hoplites as part of its reinforcements and the Garrison of Argo will be the only one having Argos Hoplites among its faction's troops. All of this regardless the faction they belong to. To own AOR towns is strategic because the AI Lord who owns it has a stronger mix of troops
-No more training skills: your men and you must fight battles to become veterans
-If you press 'I' while in battle, a bar will appear on the top-left corner, showing the number of soldiers on each side.
-If a leader is defeated in battle, the moral of the army will decrease.
-If you press 'M', you will make a battle cry.
-Battle Formations for player and AI (thanks to Motomataru's codes)
-New map banners' icons fitting the time period (no flapping flag)
-New faces, hair and beards (now good variety to choose)
-Villages and towns' prosperity will have a stronger impact on money (both for player and ai)
-Training skill has disappeared (soldiers become veterans after battles not after training!) at its place a new skill reducing food consumption (very useful because of the big size of Armies (from 300 to 1000 men)
-Spears and shields will not be shown on the back of soldiers when not in use. This for two reasons: the first is that I never liked that. The second is that it would look weird combined with some armours ... and I don't like it even stronger.
- New animations and items
- Animated Horses in city centres (AndyYa codes)
-There are many items, armours, helm, etc. they are often quite rare to be found in market places and often some of them can be found just in some faction (eg Spartan shields just in Saprta's market)
-Report screen, troop tree screen, political map
-Four layers of recruitment: village, Major Polis (ex Town), Polis (ex Castle), AOR
- No flag indicator on friendly troops, you must play "my way"…
Once you are a king you can:
- Talk to your minister by camp menu
-Change your Lords equipment and update their skills
-Your banner will become the banner of all your lords
-Change your faction troops' culture , choosing one of the already existing factions or a special player culture troop tree with customizable equipment and name (Thanks to MitchellD who implemented part of his Custom Troop Tree in this mod).
Over 500 different shields
Over 400 armours\tunics
63 Major Poleis
235 different troops (plus a number of mercenaries)
