War of 1812
Full and Final Version
The War of 1812 module in this download is the full and final version of the mod. You should delete any older versions of the mod in your Warband Napoleonic Wars modules folder located at the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\MountBlade Warband\Modules such as Warof1812V2 Version 2 as it is no longer supported by any servers and there will be no upcoming patch to convert it to the War of 1812 module, full and final version.

Final Version Features for War of 1812 Mod

New textures for the white building set - This was formerly a stucco texture. We changed it to wood clapboards to give the buildings more of a North American look. See the pictures below of how the new textures will look on the Bladensburg map. The interior of these walls will continue to have the stucco texture because it simulates plaster well. A new set of whitewashed walls from the old unpainted woodwall set is also planned.

Faction specific Cannons - The current field guns used in the War of 1812 mod are the Gribeauval or French style guns that were used by the US Army during the war. The barrel of the cannon was made of iron and it was mounted on a double bracketed carriage. The British cannon, however, differed a great deal in appearance since they had a different, block and trail style carriage, were brass instead of iron, and had equipment boxes mounted on the axel between the gun and the wheels. British artillery train drivers will now spawn with the new British style guns.

A couple new naval inspired banners - These will be US banners with a couple of famous slogans that came form the war. "DONT GIVE UP THE SHIP" were the dying words of Captain Lawrence on the frigate Chesapeake during his ill fated duel with the Shannon outside Boston harbor in 1813. Commander Oliver Hazard Perry flew a banner with these words on his flag ship the USS Niagara during the battle of Lake Erie. The white banner "FREE TRADE AND SAILOR'S RIGHTS' trumpeted one of the primary reasons for the war and was flown as a swallow tailed pennant on some US ships during the war.  Although, one of these ships just happened to be the unfortunate Chesapeake mentioned above. See pictures in spoiler below.

New Naval Weapons - We have completed models and textures for new naval cutlasses, boarding axes, boarding pike, and naval dirk to replace the hodgepodge of weapons currently used by sailors.

New Native Warpaint - We have added a couple of new native heads for the First Nations warriors. The ghost warrior warpaint head is new and so is the magua style head.  All the heads have revised hair and feathers.

New Native Melee Weapon - The stone club has been added to the arsenal of weapons available to the First Nations melee warrior.

If the bowie knives can't block then the tomahawks shouldn't be able to. The tomahawks are SUPER FAST. Might as well be my slow blocking. But if you're going to remove blocking for the bowie knife, then please slow down the tomahawk.

The tomahawk will continue to be a weapon that can block. Tomahawks are very effective as a hook type of parry weapon. As far as reducing it's speed we will take that under consideration.

Thank you everyone and as requested by Blitz here is the Manual instructions we have for the Early/Late War idea. We are looking into a possible batch file to make it easier to switch.

Manaul Early-Late War Switch Process
Instructions for switching between early and late war module configurations:

After initial download the "War of 1812" module will automatically be in a late war configuration.

Open the "War of 1812" module folder located at the path (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\MountBlade Warband\Modules\War of 1812)

*It is recommended to put a shortcut to the path of the "War of 1812" module folder on your desktop for easy access later.

Use the renaming sequence below to change to the early war configuration:
(Late to Early)
1.Rename file "module" to "module_late"
2.Rename file "module_early" to "module"
3.Rename file "troops" to "troops_late"
4.Rename file "troops_early" to "troops"

Your module is now in early war configuration.
Start the module and it will now load the early war troops menus and uniform resources.

Use the renaming sequence below to change back to the late war configuration:
(Early to Late)
1.Rename file "module" to "module_early"
2.Rename file "module_late" to "module"
3.Rename file "troops" to "troops_early"
4.Rename file "troops_late" to "troops"

Your module is now back in late war configuration.
Repeat the (Late to Early) renaming sequence to change to early war again.
