PLEASE NOTE THIS MOD REQUIRES THAT UPATCH 1.4 IS INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER!
It has been one year and one day since the brave new world v1.0 was made available. It was definitely time for an update! And after approximately 10-11 months of working on this, I now feel it is ready for release. There has been a ton of content added which I hope BNW players will enjoy. A fixed version of BNW 1.0 is also included in this package which is essentially the v1.1 version which had been making its way thru cyberspace. The only changes to this version are necessary ones in the unit bodies section of the editor so some fixed ILBs are set up properly. I felt it important that this should be included as well.
For players unfamiliar with the original, I should explain that this is a mod which places a great emphasis on heroes. Developing your heroes is an extremely important aspect of game-play and if you do so you will find they are capable of great deeds. This time around, as well as having distinctive portraits, each hero also has a unique body graphic and gone is the generic rider-type for each race. Expect to battle with great looking heroes who smoothly jog around the battlefield with very fluid and realistic animations.
This mod also is very much a tactical combat mod. The battles you have to fight are much more difficult than in the normal game and you will have to defeat powerful creatures as you struggle to expand your empire.
As players of the original might expect, there are many new and exciting creatures which have been added. Some are beautiful while some are bizarre, and still others are downright scary!
You can also expect to find many new artifacts, new map structures, changes to spells and abilities (plus a few new ones) and much, much more!
Finally I will just say that the mod comes with an easy install (same as the original) and this time around we have included some good documentation for you with illustrated tables and lots of information.
So prepare thyself brave one, for the new world beckons!
I've played several games with BNW and wonder if the archers got nerfed. It used to be you could hold a city with enough archers and ground-pounders. In the BNW maps I've played, Riverworld for example, archers are pretty well useless by midgame and the undead are basically unstoppable. Life Stealing pretty much beats everything you can throw at it and it seems like all the evil units have it.

Hi major v,
The current version of BNW is 3.2 (though a new version should be ready soon). You might want to try that. You can find download info in the top post in this thread:
