It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

1066 Alternative Culture, Kingdom and Duchy Mod for patch 1.05

Hi,

This is the 1066 Alternative Culture, Kingdom and Duchy Mod BETA version.

This mod only works with the 1066 Hastings scenario, I haven't modified the other two scenarios, so if you use this mod with those scenario's you will get all kind of weird stuff. Since I only play with the 1066 scenario's I don't really bother myself with the other two.

What does this mod bring you:
Different/renamed cultures/characternames
- Saxon (=low german)
- Frisian
- Breton
- Gaelic
- Gaiheal
- Croatian
- Serbian
- Bulgarian
- Albanian
- Lombard
- Norse
- Baltic
- Finnic
- Dietsch
- Anglo-Saxon

New kingdoms
- The Isles
- Finland
- Sardinia
- Khazaria

New/renamed duchies
- Holland
- Gelre
- Kujawy
- Pomeralia
- Capua
- Aemilia
- Volhynia
- Rügen
- Northumbria
- Siena
- Brunswick
- Alsace
- Bar
- Valois

And many more.

Before installing this mod, back all the originial files.

I made this mod, to my own liking. It is not 100% historically correct and doesn't attempt to be either, I have just modded the things I liked to mod. :)

EDIT
Uploaded a new version


Made the following changes
- Ugric culture added (for the Mordvins in the 1066 scenario) (I had one free culture tag)
- Andalucian (In Muslim Iberia, a 'dark' culture but not with Arabic names) (Have merged Cuman and Pecheneg into Kipchak culture and use Pecheneg for Andalucian)
- Kingdom of Andalusia in Southern Iberia
- Added some dynasties on the Faeryar and Shetlands (last one thanks to Ayesthani :) )
- William the Conquerer starts with the realm duress trait
- The Leofricson dukes start with the rebellious trait
- The province-incomes of Ireland, Scotland and Wales have been increased
- Byzantine empire and Seljuks start at peace with each other
- Weimar now belongs to the duchy of Thuringia instead of Saxony
- Removed kingdom of Sardinia (to small really)
- Renamed duchy of Friuli back to Krain (can't decided what it should be)
- Renamed county of Aargau to county of Habichtsburg (a leftover from my von Habsburg AAR)
- Added a character in the county of Faereyar (a bastard named Godfraidh, he is pure fictional)
- Changed the Breton character names
- The duchy of Lothian is now uncreated at the start, the count of Berwick is a vassal of the duke of Galloway
- Included are some changed Coat of Arms (for duchy of Benevento f.e.)
- Have renamed Dietsch culture to Flemish culture (it sounds nicer )
- And some other things that I have forgotten :)

EDIT
Version 1.02
- Made Stettin a province of default kingdom of Poland, somehow it had become part of the default kingdom of Finland
- Made Richard of Aversa, duke of Capua (but he still gets excommunicated every time)
- Took the duchy of Normandy title from Robert de Normandie and gave it to his father king William. The AI king immediately gives it to Robert after the start
- Added some nicknames to character (Robert Curthose de Normandie, William Rufus de Normandie)

EDIT
Version 1.03
- Added a kingdom of Armenia
- Removed the kingdom of Aleppo
- Gave Robert Guiscard de Hauteville claims on the duchy and county of Capua (the claims were lost somehow in version 1.02)
- Made Stigand of Canterbury (courtier in the kingdom of England) a scholary theologian (he became the archbishop of Canterbury later in his life)
- Gave the tribe of Mecklemburg its own tag and renamed it to Obodrites
- Gave the tribe of Pomerania its own tag and renamed it to Pomeranians
- Made the Jewish duchy of Khazar into a kingdom and renamed it The Khazars
- Made the Emirate of Mallorca (MALL) into the Emirate of the Balearic (BALE)

EDIT
Version 1.04
- Added a kingdom of the Balts (Baltic region)
- Added a kingdom of Galich (southern Russia/Ukraine)
- Merged the kingdom of Khazaria with Bolgar
- Added a duchy of Friesland (Frisia, Ostfriesland, Oldenburg, Bremen)
- Added a duchy of the Palatinate (Pfalz and Mainz)
- Added a duchy of Minsk (Minsk and Orsha)
- Added a duchy of Baden (Baden and Breisgau)
- Gave the tribe of Mecklemburg its own tag and renamed it to Odbrites
- Gave the tribe of Pomerania its own tag and renamed it to Pomeranians
- Removed the duchy of Steiermark (to Kärnten)
- Removed the duchy of Bar (to Upper-Lorraine)
- Removed the duchy of Belgrade (to Vidin)
- Removed the duchy of Abydos (to Nicaea)
- Renamed Russian culture to Ruthenian culture
- Renamed Norse culture to Nordic culture
- Renamed Italian culture to Italic culture
- Merged Lappish with Finnic culture (could be renamed to Samo-Finnic ?)
- Renamed the Gaidheal culture to Norse-Gaelic culture (using the Lappish tag)
- Reintroduced the Scottish culture and added it to the southern Scottish provinces. This still might need some tweaking, the rulers are still Gaelic culture, might also need some change.
- Renamed the duchy of Pinsk-Turov to Turov
- Added some characters to Croatia and Slavonia to link the king with the duke, conform Improvement Pack 2
- Renamed Rogneda of Polotsk to Ragnhild Ragnvaldsdottir of Polotsk and made her a daughter of Ragnvald of Norway
- Increased the base-income of the province of Polotsk and Bergenhus with 1
- Redid the Breton character names list

Weakening the Muslims and Pagans
- Fatimid, Cumans and Seljuk kingdoms have lost their 'duke-level' vassals. Those duke-lever vassals are now independent
- The Iberian Emirs have lost their 'count-level' vassals, Those vassals are now independent

These changes have made the Muslims/Pagans weaker, this means an easier target for the human player. If you want a challenge play with strict houserules. If you leave those regions alone, you might see the AI Spanish kingdoms and the AI-kingdom of Georgia survive :)

Since some people will not like it, I leave version 1.03 available for download

could you please update this for 2.1b? I want to play as the Khazars and they are no where to be found. Maybe they were removed in 2.1b. I don't know. I used the Muslim/pagan patch, but stil NO Khazars.
