Thread: Viking Forefathers DLC Reskin+ Unique Roster Expansion v.1.02

  1. #1

    Default Viking Forefathers DLC Reskin+ Unique Roster Expansion v.1.02

    Reskin for Danes, Geats and Jutes

    more hairs/beards

    more pelts and cloaks

    up to 400 new shields (sometimes there is no shield twice in one unit)

    changed faction colors and emblems



    here you can see some units in the jutes roster


    New Units
    2 new Units for all 3 Factions


    Nordic Hunters - like nordic bows but they use 2-handed spear in melee so they may be a threat when charging into cav

    Nordic Valkyries - very fast mid tier skirmisher cav with encourage


    3 unique units for Danes

    Randver Marauders - very strong melee ship

    Axe Skirmishers - AXE THROWING skirmishers with better accuracy but lower rate of fire then precursor axes and decent in melee combat

    Axe Marauders - Axe Skirmishers on a ship with ammo replenish like bow ships


    2 unique units for Geats

    Gauti Horse Raiders - mid tier Spear cav

    Odin Spears - Aggressive Late Game Spear Unit


    2 unique units for Jutes

    Nordic Reavers - even stronger viking raiders

    Axe Warriors - better Warhound unit

    Balancing
    some of the new units are strong but should not be overpowered and as long as i play attila i will update them after patches

    i buffed Norse Berserkers not to be useless anymore (they were in my opinion), now they are pretty good shock but still die fast
    vandal berserkers buffed too to still be better

    Compatibility
    this mod does not overwrite any tables or variantmeshdefinitions so it should be compatible with any other mod
    there may be issues with mods overwriting unit_variants_tables or main_units_tables - if you experience these problems try switching load orders

    reworked horse lords variantmeshdefinition

    Great, great work here. This solved a lot of the issues I have had with the vikings. Also they look totally badass now with the beards and the skins. Very good job. Also the berserkers finally have bear serks. I'd download this mod just for that.



    One issue that bugs me remains though. Removal of the buckler shields a few of the viking units use. Especially those of the hirdmenn and the viking raiders. Hirdmenn are a pretty essential defensive unit with good shield block chance, and yet they use those weird small shields. The round shields would look much better on them.


    I'd do it myself, but I have no idea how.


    Also the new units are both flavorful and greatly done, but could you give the valkyries parthian shot? For the price I dont find them worthwhile as missile cav without parthian shot is such a hassle to use well.

    I'd like reskin only vesrion, maybe even shields only, because I've made my own little tweaks.

    I'm with those who ask for reskin-only ver., as while playing with balance changing mods, it'd be problematic to use units as well =\

    I join to you 'reskin-only guys') Awesome mod but it`s true - new units could be a problem in balance.

    That's.. odd. Thanks man!



    Thought the shield values and armour was just a stat you tweaked like everything else.
