Introduction
Iron Europe is a World War I mod for the Mount&Blade Warband Napoleonic Wars DLC. Our goal is to immerse players in the brutal battles of WWI. Players will have the opportunity to fight it out, for France or for Germany, in the trenches and in no man's land. Play as an expendable rifleman grunt, a brave officer leading from the front, an artillerymen supporting comrades from afar, or an elite assault trooper, spearheading attacks. Use bolt-action rifles, machine guns, and pistols to take down enemies from a distance or close in and engage in brutal hand to hand combat with knives, clubs, and the trusty bayonet. A host of features, including whistles, bleeding, bandaging, and grenades have been added to bring the WWI experience to life.

Some history of the mod. The first WWI mod for Warband to ever be completed was The Vast Fields of Europe. While it had many interesting features, it was killed by buggy releases and lack of interest. Several months after the death of TVFoE, the team created Battlefield Europe 1916 with a whole new vision in mind. Iron Europe is a continuation of that vision. IE's first public release took place February 14, 2014. The day before, it reached #1 in popularity on ModDB.

Features
  • Two Factions: French Third Republic, German Empire. Fight for the French Third Republic or the German Empire. These mighty titans of Europe have different strengths and weaknesses which players can discover and use to their advantage.
  • Wide variety of classes: Each class is unique, with it's own advantages, disadvantages and equipment sets. Apart from typical, expected classes such riflemen, officers, and artillerymen, you'll have the opportunity to play as a support trooper, helping your comrades with ammunition and bandages. Or instead, be an elite Stormtrooper, serving the Vaterland by overrunning enemy defenses and striking deep into their territory. Yet more opportunities await you as a French trench sweeper, a Chauchat gunner or an armored German sentinel.
  • Tons of new weapons: A wide range of killing instruments are at your disposal including bolt-action rifles, revolvers, semi-autos, machine guns, knives, clubs and bayonets.
  • Sniper Rifles: Take out enemies from a distance with scoped rifles.
  • Heavy machine guns: Heavy machine guns can be carried around the battlefield and are highly effective in holding positions. Cut down advancing enemy forces with devastating firepower.
  • Grenades: Use grenades to assault enemy positions. There are several different types, including both fuse and percussion grenades. Each has unique characteristics, for example, the M16 Stielhandgranate has long range but is awkward to carry while the F1 grenade can be carried in great numbers but cannot be thrown very far. Several Stielhandgranates can be bundled together to form a concentrated charge.
  • Medical System: Taking a large amount of damage causes bleeding which can be stopped with bandages, carried by support troopers and medics. Medical Corp classes can provide treatment with morphine.
  • Ammunition Crates: Support troops can carry ammo crates around the battlefield, allowing comrades caught in prolonged combat to resupply.
  • Whistles: As an officer, rally your men and sound the charge with a whistle.
  • Binoculars: Binoculars come in handy when you're a sniper, artilleryman or officer. Locate enemy positions and plan accordingly.
  • Artillery: Rain fire on your enemies with infantry support guns, field guns and trench mortars.

Those are just uniforms that are in-game? Or if not they will probably use them in the future.

It doesn't exist. If it does, then it's possibly illegal.

Indeed. See this (had such a link and was removed):
Spoiler
Server files absence, so I've rented a Windows vServer, installed Steam, installed Warband, started NW(which obviously crashed, but was necessary for IronEurope to find NW), installed Iron Europe 1.0 and 1.1, ripped Music, Textures, Sounds etc., and zipped it into a file:
Just unpack, edit the ironeurope.txt and start via the .bat(Windows) or via .sh(Linux with wine)

Best wishes,
Nettelbeck

And yes,also has all the other files inside, with 10GBit connection, happy loading.

It's not laziness, but just developers' intention not to release server files to prevent too many servers from being set up. That'd probably lead to public players getting lost on a hundred of tiny private servers, as many mod's released already proved. Server files would have been released a week or so after the mod's release, which should be.... in 4 days or so. Although i appreciate the fact that you put all those files free for download on your own server, i must remove that download link from the forums until official server files will be released by the Development Team.

This guy is literally going to kill your player base with all his trolling, I suggest you get every server owner to perma-ban him (LeBRON_james that is). The screenshot doesn't do justice to the amount of TKing he took part in, he would use grenades to murder the German team en-masse, then exit the server and rejoin in order to avoid the autokick and autoban. Please ban this guy.

On behalf of your entire player base, I thank you for your attention.

Thanks for the report.

Edit: Also, you guys are welcome to add me on steam if you need an admin to take a look at something on the servers as soon as possible.
