I'm making a japanese faction for glest.
It is intended for work on
both Glest Advanced Engine or
Megaglest.Currently this mod works properly only in Megaglest.
It is magitech and megapack compatible.
The mod I'm currently working is based on historical Late 15~ Early 17th century japan.
At the time japan was under a civil war and the era was known for "SENGOKU JIDAI
(era of warring states) ".
large variety of units will be included in this mod, along with many japanese traditional style buildings.

The mod focuses on more minor villagers/bandits battles, also with some rollicksome flavors inspired by famous Kurosawa films and some Japanese "JIDAIGEKI
" cinemas such as "Yojimbo", "Seven Samurai", "Zatoichi".
