Somewhat More Historical Map
|Somewhat More Historical Map|
SWMH is a major map overhaul project, aimed at replicating the medieval world as contemporary accurately as possible. Secondly it includes substantial work on history and cultural related features. All this work has been conducted with a philosophy of keeping as close to the core features as possible, in order to maximize comp ability with other mods. The mod is in continuous development with different areas receiving overhauls in each update.
The team behind the mod: Axl Madness, Bertuccio, Elvain, Il Moro and Aasmul.
