Greetings Vintarian!

Let me introduce to your attention Ancient Military Technology. If you are tired of the appearance of your vanilla sword, then you have come to the right place.
The mod adds a large number of different samples of ancient weapons and armor to the game. You can feel like a Viking, Samurai, landsknecht and even a Roman legionnaire. In the future, their number will only grow to represent as many epochs as possible. The development is taking quite small steps, but I hope that your patience will pay off.

I'm pretty bad at programming, so if you find any errors, please let me know as soon as possible. I don't want to ruin the gameplay for you.

I want to thank macoto_hino for the Japanese translation. If anyone has a desire to help with translation into other languages, I will be very grateful.

Added full compatibility with the grindstone from the Necessaries mod!

Added weapons:

Mycenaean Sword

One of the oldest representatives of swords in history. It is made only by casting.


The sword of the Roman legionaries. It is transitional between the Bronze and Iron Ages. He is considered the father of European swords.


The evolution of the simplest weapon in the history of mankind – a wooden club. Has a slow attack animation but deals increased damage.


A large utility knife that they always carried with them. Due to its length and weight, it was used as an additional or sometimes main weapon.

The Carolingian Sword

The famous Viking sword. Among the swords of that era there were those who stood out for their quality. Enjoy using it.

Battle axe

A battle axe is great for piercing armor. 


The throwing spear of a Roman legionary. The design of the pilum is needed to break through the armor and get stuck in the target. As a result, it is poorly suited for close combat and quickly becomes unusable


The most common weapon in the history of mankind. With skillful use, it allows you to keep a distance from the enemy. You can still throw it, but it won't fly far


Kriegsmesser literally means a “war knife”. It is a simpler and cheaper analogue of a longsword. Mainly used by Landsknecht


Short Renaissance arming sword. Signature blade of the Landsknecht


A longsword with a “flaming” blade. Inflicts monstrous wounds but is particularly fragile.


Balanced weapon for delivering fast slashes.


A blade without which it is impossible to imagine a Japanese Samurai. Well balanced for fast strikes

Added Armor:

The game already has a very beautiful armor, but I couldn't stop and also tried to do something decent.

Lorica Segmentata

The legendary armor of the Roman Legionnaires is now available to you!


To complete the image of a Legionnaire, you need the right shield and here it is!

Nomad Armor

It is divided into two types. The light version is made of bronze lamellae and facilitates archery. The heavy option allows you to get good protection for a small amount of resources.


To feel like a samurai, you will have to go through the difficult path of creating this armor by repeating the ancient technology step by step. (although I had to simplify a little😂)

That's all for now. I hope for your feedback, let me know if you find serious errors, especially in translation.

You can ask your questions in the topic on the forum.

Does this work for 1.18 and 1.19? Or like most good mods, it's just abandoned?


💬 MrTango, Aug 26th at 10:05 AM

How does this mod balance with respect to vanilla weapons&armour?

💬 Bellcross, Jul 23rd at 10:47 PM

@Tonzag Will this mod get updated to 1.18.X ?

💬 Keekenox, May 17th at 12:43 AM

When update 😢

💬 Catobserver, Apr 23rd at 12:58 AM

Is this still going to be active into 1.18? (a lot of stuff still hasn't updated so I'm not expecting it has to show up right away, but this one hasn't had activity in a while)

💬 actuallyasriel, Sep 16th 2022 at 11:37 PM

The prettiest weapon mod for VS returns! Welcome back, Tonzag :D

The screenshots for "Added Weapons", "Gladius", and "Mace" don't load for me on this page (Firefox and Microsoft Edge), but visiting the URLs directly works fine.
