Stronghold 2 Desert Mod

Recommended Posts

Presenting: one of our official extensions for Stronghold 2!


Before I'd start I'd like to say that we did not create this modification; I created the installer for it but the basic components already existed and were created by some of the Stronghold Knights team.


This extension will automatically install itself to a new folder in Stronghold 2 'mods/SHK Desert Mod' - in the event you'd like this uninstalled, run the uninstallation file within that folder. It changes the game files by itself when you run the installer after downloading and backs them up automatically. This is a step towards the much needed automatic extension process in Stronghold 2 and makes the process a lot simpler for the end user.

I've also added a new 'Egyptian Walls' mod as well, though this does not work on an installer. You can grab this here. Screenshot:




Finally, I've updated our music pack to turn it into another of our official game extensions; this installs itself to the folder 'mods/SHN Music Pack' in the main Stronghold 2 folder and is uninstalled as easily as the Desert Mod. You can get that here.

Yet ANOTHER reason that my "lazy" Self needs to buy SHC2......

It's actually a mod for the "old" Stronghold 2 (not Crusader 2) - but it does make it look a lot like the new game! :)


Also thought I should mention that the Desert Mod is first rate (my experience with it in the past) and should be compatible with multiplayer, even when playing with people without the mod, since it just changes textures. The Egyptian Walls mod also looks cool from the screenshots. The music pack should add some excitement too.

I can only wish that the new Crusader 2 was an improved Stronghold 2. That would be an epic game.


I second this, as much as I enjoy the building and the troops in SHC2, the game itself has too many bugs and issues. SH2 hit the nail right on the head! :)

Indeed. And even if it was overcomplicated to many, they could have simply removed these things such as crime, and made earning honor simpler - like in Stronghold 3, and kept all these cool things such as melee fights inside towers. Too bad that they simplified that even in Stronghold Legends. Stairways and towers in Stronghold 2 are the best, while in Stronghold Legends stairways are the worst. It would be much better of troops weren't able to climb up those stairs so quickly though.

    • Old Stronghold Knights

      I was recently playing Stronghold Crusader 2 after upgrading my hardware and it has made me want to play stronghold crusader even more. Which reminded me of stronghold knights and a lot of their old stronghold content from Stronghold to Stronghold 2. I was wondering if anyone either had any copies of the many skirmish maps for crusader that were once part of SHK before its downfall.  This is a real shot in the dark but i was wanting to use the maps for old nostalgia as well as to store them

      As some of you may know, there are two versions of Stronghold 2: the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition. The standard edition patches to version 1.4.1, however, the Deluxe edition patches to version 1.31; and it requires a special Deluxe patch. The good news is that this patch was included on the DVD disc itself of late releases of this game (I have a late release which includes a 1.31 patch right on the disc; alternatively, the patch can also be downloaded here: https://www.patches-scrolls
