Adds populated villages that can expand and trade with the player
Millénaire is a mod that aims to "fill" the Minecraft world a little by adding pre-generated villages to it, with a loose 11th century theme to them. Those villages will appear occasionally in newly generated areas, with villagers of different kind working. You can trade with them, help them develop their village, and trade with them for items such as wood, and cider.
Villagers in each village perform specific tasks, such as Lumbermen collecting wood by chopping down trees and planting new saplings, farmers planting and harvesting crops, and traveling merchants moving between villages to trade.
For a full list of features and updates see the Millénaire Wiki page.

They also have very good weapons such as the Tachi Sword, as well as two sets of armour. Japanese are from the Heian Period of Japan's History and are known as the Heian people.

Expansion of the Village
The main "aim" of the villagers is to improve their village. There is between six and ten initial villagers, but their number will grow as they have children and build new houses. They can also build new types of buildings and improve existing ones. For this they need building materials: wood, cobblestone, glass and stone. They can acquire the resources needed themselves or by trading from the player. There are four different types of villages, each with a slightly different set of buildings upon completion.
Trade with the Player
There are eight Norman locations at which the player can trade with the villagers: their Town Hall, Bakery, Tavern, Forge, Armoury, Pig Farm, Cattle Farm, and the Sheep Farm. (when built):
- Town Hall/Fort (present at start): you can sell wood, stone, cobblestone, iron and glass (plus extra blocks when building projects require them). Payment made in deniers, a special item. You can also buy wood there, Parchments and the "village wand".
- Bakery (when built): Buy Bread.
- Tavern (when built): Cider and in upgrade taverns Calva.
- Forge (when built): Norman Tools.
- Armoury (when built): Norman Broadsword and Armour.
- Pig Farm (when built): Boudin noir and Porkchops.
- Cattle Farm (when built): Tripes and Leather.
- Sheep Farm (when built): Wool, Eggs, and Feather.
To trade, players must go to one of the locations in question and stand near the chests. If no woman is around one will arrive shortly. Right-click on her to bring up the trade screen.

There are currently nine types of Norman villagers:
- Farmers: Grow crops in the fields around their house, and bring the resulting wheat back to their house chest.
- Lumbermen: Chop trees, plant new trees with saplings they get from destroying leaves, and gather cider apples from leaves as well. They put the wood and apples they gather in their house chests.
- Miners: Mines for stone and cobblestone for construction, and sand for the making of glass.
- Animal Farmers: There are three types of farmers; Pig farmers, Sheep and Chicken farmers and Cattle farmers that make a living out of the resources they gain from their respective farms.
- Wives: Have the most complex work: taking resources from their husbands' work to the various public buildings, making bread from wheat, making cider from cider apples, trading with the player and building new constructions.
- Children: Born at night, and which grow up to become adults when bread is available and new houses are built.
- Guards: Patrol the village, will attack you if you attack a villager.
- Priests: Visit the church.
- Smiths: Makes Norman tools in the forge, swords and armor in the armoury.

The color gradually changes as mobs get nearer, from light blue (like diamond items) to bright red.

When you do so, the Lady in the Fort will start making them, and they will be for sale.
These are in-game Millenaire parchments that give you a brief description of the Buildings, Items, and/or Villagers. There is also one parchment you may buy that has all information about that culture's villages.
