I think it was called Rus 13th century or something along those lines. It was a historical mod, think it was either 13th century or 12th
Edit:
Yep 13th century, here's a link to their subforum http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/board,161.0.html
It seems they have an alpha out for warband. Much excitement.

Skull, what I mean is as the FOV is already restricted due to your view point being a single monitor, rather than your eyes, as it would be in RL, an additional viewpoint restriction would be unnecessary and prohibitive, except in the cases of bucket helms and similar, where your FOV is more restricted than it is by the monitor, and that could be done with depictions of eyeholes etc. I agree with the option of lifting the helmet, which works for helmets with visors, and I believe it was common practice for many soldiers with those helmets to have their visors up most of the time anyway, unless it was seriously hairy, just so they could see. Having a well protected head is pointless if you can't see the peasant with the spear poking into the chink in your armour.

Thank you. I hope it will work...

Agreed. Also,when the player has his visor up,he can see the whole screen (almoust) as if he was not wearing a helmet at all,but his head armour will be a lot lower.
Also,I don't think a levy has any chances against a heavily armored Knight (he can just stab the poor peasant or cut the head of his spear) -unless the peasant is Flemish,of coarse. :P

Ok, the knight will have better training etc, but a peasant with a halberd could dismount a knight and kill him with enough vicious conviction. But my point still stands, if you can't see what you're doing, you're helpless, unless you happen to have jedi powers, which I don't think many knights had back then.

Not everyone had halberds. :)
Well,I was just thinking it would be a very nice feature...

Or hear them.
Also,I think that they could see what they needed - even when wearing great helms...

It looks great! ;D

But I have a feeling that it's going to make modding so much harder...

Yeah, I can't imagine this will be very moddable - on the other hand, it does look very very pretty indeed.

Well, I didn't mean it in that way.

They said that they'll try to make it more mod-friendly, using what looks like Bethesda's construction set for Oblivion and Skyrim.

I just meant that it looks like making and rigging models is going to be a lot more complex, time consuming and harder.

Yeah, that was what I meant too.

But also some things like making custom settlements and buildings may presumably be harder, for example, depending on how the weather systems work.

That part actually looked pretty nice in the video they made, if I remember correctly.
They've made some sort of preset foliage brushes and editing scenes really looked like a lot of fun.

It would be nice if the weather system could be turned off.
