    Not too long ago I started this thread, asking if people would be interested in an alt. history scenario for England in which Edgar was king, and another in which William was king (in lieu of a post-Hastings scenario).

    The first of these scenarios is now available to play, should you so wish. The main objective of this mod is to make playing as England in 1066 a bit less of a hassle, as although your enemies still have claims on your throne they do not start at war with you and do not have event troops spawned.

    The premise is fairly simple: when Edward the Confessor died, the Witan (narrowly) elected Edgar - the last of the West Saxon royal line - over Harold Godwinson, who nonetheless has a strong claim on the throne and will likely cause trouble. You can of course still play as any of the other pretenders as well.

    I don't intend to do a great deal of additional work on this mod as it was always designed as a fairly self-contained idea, but if it needs updating for upcoming patches then of course I will.

    Sometime later this week I'll upload a companion mod based around William becoming king and having some Norman vassals in the south of England.

    The full changelog for v1.0 is below - enjoy!
