In this mod 6 fantasy factions do battle for dominance of a fantasy world.

Features

* Magic: there are 4 magic types; fire, earth, wind, and plague magic. Fire magic can burn siege equipement and plague magic makes other units ill. If I could add water magic I could make an Avatar mod.
* Castles and cities have been merged. Large and huge cities now become Fortresses and Citadels, respectively.
* Undead: undead units will never rout though they are weaker than their living counterparts.

Pre-installation
This mod also requires the offical 1.2 patch for M2TW

Installation
0) Download this mod (4 seasons lite 2.0.7z) and unpack it using 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/).

1) Go to the Medieval II Total War directory (default is C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War).

2) Copy and paste the seasons.bat, seasons.cfg, and 'seasons' folder into the Medieval II Total War directory (default location 'C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War'). These files form most of the mod.

3) Copy and paste the 'data' folder in the 'seasons lite' folder into the Medieval II Total War directory, you will be asked if you wish to overwrite the vanilla 'data' folder, click yes. This will add the shared.sd and strategy.sd into the 'Medieval II Total War\data\ui' folder.

If these files are not put in the correct folder the mod will not display correctly. However if other mods need their own shared.sd and strategy.sd these files may prevent them working. If you other mods do not display correctly try deleting these files (there's a spare copy of them in the 'Medieval II Total War\seasons\data\ui' folder).

4) To play this mod double click on the 'seasons.bat' file and select the campaign you want to play.

5) To make the 'seasons.bat' file into a destop shortcut right click on it, select 'Send To' on the pop-up menu, then select 'Desktop (create shortcut)'.

Additional Files
If the sound does not work copy the 'Medieval II Total War/data/sound' folder to the 'seasons/data' folder.
