Hey guys,

I am about to release the new version on Steam Workshop as a full 2.3 GB download!

Sadly, the workshop does not support multiplayer mods, so a complicated installation is needed. You have to find a download folder, copy that folder, put that into your modules folder and rename it.
Cause lot of people won't understand that, I need someone who would be able to help me and create a step by step video, showing the progress in a video.

Please PM me, if you are interested! :)

North & South: First Manassas / The Units of 1.0 - Fact Sheets
« on: May 06, 2015, 08:12:35 pm »


The Units of 1.0 - Fact Sheets


































11
Lieber deutsche NW Community...

Ich würde euch gerne einmal "kurz" meine kleine Mod nahe bringen wollen, die bis heute die erfolgreichste NW mod darstellt... North and South.
Die mod gibt es seit dem Release von NW und wird noch heute von über 1.000 Spielern regelmäßig in Line Battles gespielt. Das große Samstag LB wird zB auf 3 Servern gleichzeitig ausgetragen, weil es 600 Teilnehmer gibt. Unter anderem bringt das 2Lhr (mit Cooper und Pilo) immer eine Vielzahl von Soldaten mit!

In wenigen Tagen kommt das große Update, was eine Vielzahl von sinnvollen Neuerungen bringen wird... Vor allem über 100 neue Uniformen, in Kooperation mit L'Aigle... Es ist praktisch das L'Aigle MP im Bürgerkrieg ;)

Spoiler


Leider gibt es noch immer "sture" NW Regimenter, die nichts anderes außer NW kennen und neuen Sachen kaum aufgeschlossen sind.
Daher möchte ich die Herren einladen, die neue Version mit ihren Regimentern zu testen!

Die mod hat einen großen Vorteil:
Im Gegensatz zu NW gibt es weiterhin Updates! Ebenso kriegen große Regimenter, wie zB die 2 Lhr, ihr eigenes Regiment. Mit einem speziellem Key wird eine eigene Einheit freigeschaltet, die nur das Regiment benutzen kann. Alle anderen können dann nur ingame diese Einheit bewundern :)

Die Mod bietet ebenso mehr Realismus durch zusätzliche Funktionen wie Bajonet aufpflanzen, Sanitäter, Armee-Priester usw.
Im neuen Update kommen auch England, Frankreich, Mexiko und Preussen hinzu!

Die größten und umfangreichsten Mods für NW wurden von Deutschen entwickelt, daher ist es schade zu sehen, dass gerade die große deutsche NW Community die harte Arbeit meidet. Und das Argument "das Melee in NW ist besser!" kann man nicht wirklich akzeptieren! ;)


Noch ein paar Random Screens aus North and South:

In Development / European factions joined the American Civil War!
« on: April 03, 2015, 11:36:38 am »
On July 25th, 4 days after the confederate victory at Manassas, France and England declared war on the United States of America!
While an Expeditionary Corps was sent to Richmond, Virginia.. the Mexican Army started a second Invasion of Texas and declared war on the Confederate States of America.

What would YOU do, if that "What if..." Scenario took place?




JOIN the War, fight as British Highlanders, French Zouaves or Mexican Guerilla!

For those, who had no interest to play a mod, locked to american nations only! Now its time for a change!

In the next North and South Update, you are able to play as prussian, british, french or mexican soldiers!

North & South: First Manassas / Cavalry in NaS 1.0 [discussion]
« on: February 14, 2015, 11:59:51 pm »
So, since a while, I always got complains about the cavalry in the mod.
In nearly every line battle, cavalry is not allowed to fire from horseback or to reload on the move.

But for me, thats the meaning of the cavalry! They are fast shock troops, which are able to fire on the move and reload, while having a bad accuracy.

I got asked, if its possible to remove the shooting on horseback and to remove the moving ability for reloading carbines.

So, you guys got any suggestions, ideas.. what can be done with the cavalry in the next patch?
