I am here to share with you the final edition of the Imperial Army
Skinset. Final editon, you might ask? After many years of service and all kinds of texture-packs we have redone our skinset to only replace the austrian faction without touching the other factions. Therefore we have started from scratch to create our version 8.0. It is final due to the fact that all additional contents (which will be skins from all our past editions also new textures and will be released as time comes along). After all those years we can say it is compatibel with every other skinset unless the other skinset replaces austria aswell. (it only needs two .brf files, mmaustrianuniforms.brf and mmaustrianhelments.brf). And yes, it replaces the entire austrian faction. Next to textures this Skinset also replaces all unit names of all factions and all weapon names to make them more historically accurate! So you won´t find any infantry_musket in the game anymore, however for example a sweet looking Brown Bess M1756, different Charleville Mousquets, a weapon called Infanterie-Säbel M1806, Kavallerie-Stutzen and many many more all being named in their nations language to offer a great feeling of immersion. All names were also touched on so instead of only reading the description "line infantry" you will be able to read things like "infanterie de ligne" or "Linien-Infanterie". Since it wouldnt be that easy to implement and to read the russian cyrillic letters russian names are mostly written in german.All in all this Imperial Army Skinset primarly offers:
+ A total overhaul of the Austrian Faction with the replacement of all austrian skins, the implementation of new objects and ressources.
+ Historically accurate and more suitable names for all weapons and all units of all nations in their respective language.
+ New menues and design.
+ Future contents (DLCs without paying a thing, take that Electronic Arts...)There are a two options for you to play our skinset:
The first option is to download the skinset as members of the Imperial Army play it. That means certain Officer names are replaced by the names of imperial army officers. (Officer of the IR59 -> Leutnant Darthkiller). Leave it that way when you want to...Download the Imperial Army Skinset v.8.0 - Collectors Edition
... However as most may want to play this skinset with more historically accurate names you can download a small conversion to revert the names of said officers.

Raddeo´s Open Workshop doesn´t only give us wonderful skins it also sends us great animations to use. Therefore I need to recommend you to get some nice animations.Raddeo´s Workshop
I have no Idea who actually made this, however using this alternative reticule I am one of the most deadliest pistoleros since 2012. It´s more simple and it´s not exploiting the game since it opens and closes just like the other one. It has three lines coming together in the middle.Alternative reticule
It can´t be more simple. Installing those contents happens by overwriting existing files. Once downloaded and extracted you will get a folder called: Napoleonic Wars, you need to put this folder into the modules folder where you game is located at. Most likely it is: C:\\program files(x86)\steam\steamapps\common\mount&blade:warband\modules
Play the game in english to see all the names correctly!
Basically that´s it!
If you like it give me a reply and send your recommendations as we are always eager to make our skinset better and to add new austrian skins or other contents.
Be thrilled to see our new inventions as time moves on.
