First of all: Back up your files!!!
Got tired of the sand, palm trees, camels and Arabian mercenaries in Stronghold Crusader HD?
Then this mod is for you!
In the Stronghold Europe Mod you will see Europeans and only Europeans in a European landscape.
No arabs here... with due respect to all users... whatever country you are from...
Camels, drunks, moms, kids, hunting dogs and chickens which hinder the placement of buildings were made invisible - that is my personal contribution to the Stronghold HD Europe project. Credit for rest of the Stronghold HD Europe Mod goes to the other members of the Stronghold HD Europe project.

Did you back up your original files? Unzip the Stronghold Europe Mod to your Stronghold Crusader HD folder and have fun!
[As I understand it, to use this mod, you need to 1) make a copy of everything in your Stronghold Crusader HD folder in case you ever want to return to using the normal game. 2) unzip the download and move the contents into your Stronghold Crusader HD folder replacing what is there. 3 ) play the game. To revert to the normal game you need to copy your copied original files back into the folder replacing what is there. And you do all this at your own risk.) - edited by ericgolf]

I'm glad to see someone submitting this here. I haven't downloaded this version of Stronghold Europe, but I shall do that this evening. What I meant to ask before that... Stronghold Europe installation that is provided at Stronghold Europe website (the English one) doesn't force you to choose between the original Crusader, and Stronghold Europe - once you install it you can play both.
Did you try that with this one? Maybe it works with this one as well?
Also, you say, there's no Arabs? Are there some other new lords instead of them? I just meant to say that there would be no reason to remove Arab lords - Arabs were present in Europe for while, they were in Iberian peninsula, and they also went in heart of the Europe fighting against Franks just several centuries before the Crusades.
I'm also sorry for writing here without trying what you gave us first - but I will try that later today, right now I am not able to.

Nice but a bit incomplete i find. The scenery looks nice and i like the redo of the castles and buildings. Unfortunately, most of the Arab mercenaries have been replaced by what looks like engineers, even the Arab horse archers. I would like to see an improvement here.

You can also download this from http://stronghold-eu.ucoz.com/
If you do it that way, you will be able to have Stronghold Europe and Stronghold Crusader & Extreme at the same time in one single folder. Also, this way there WILL be Arabs, which is not a bad thing after all. They did invade Europe few centuries before Crusades.
