Thread: Seven Kingdoms v1.0 - Public Alpha Release

    Default Seven Kingdoms v1.0 - Public Alpha Release





    Seven Kingdoms: Total War
    is a complete faction and unit overhaul based on and inspired by A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones. The mod strives to accurately recreate and depict all major land forces of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros using equipment, uniforms, and general aesthetics from the series.

    Featuring 17 armies within 8 factions led by 19 photorealistic characters from the TV show, the public alpha allows both book and lore enthusiasts to bring the gritty combat of Westeros to life in Attila's multiplayer and custom battle modes. But, this is where the word "alpha" comes in - we aren't finished by any stretch. George R.R. Martin crafted an entire universe in the books and series, and we plan on continually expanding and improving content over time to fully recreate this universe.

    This mod is the culmination of many hundreds of hours of work; we're incredibly thankful to all those who helped make it a reality. If you enjoy playing it, please vote for us in the ModDB Mod of the Year contest!

    Thank you all for the support!

    Yes, congratulations on your release! The team should be really proud of their work so far. The units look glorious, and I love your unique approach with the vassal houses!

    One thing I noticed after a few practice battles was how quick the battles are. Actual fighting lasted about 2 minutes between forces of 2 000 each. This is even more arcade-like than the recent vanilla Total War games. I really hope you guys address this. Otherwise, as I said, it's great!

    We had the problem where battles in previous versions were too long. It may take a few patches to hit the sweet spot but it's a top priority for us and public feedback will help get us there. A patch is planned for the next few days.

    Crashes every time I click custom battle

    I had this problem before, no worries. This should do the trick:


    - Go to your AppData folder (try searching for %appdata% with Windows). Mine is located at C:\Users\BlickMang\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Attila
    - Try deleting the folder "battle_preferences". This folder stores custom battle settings, and resetting it should allow it to work.


    If you notice when you play Attila, the game stores your custom battle settings in a saved file. When you start a mod with different unit names, the game can't reference these saved settings, and so it crashes. Deleting the file skips this process and forces the game to generate a new one with the new mod.

    It is well established fact that some people prefer very quick battles whilst others prefer slower and more tactical ones. If you ask me, I'd say you err on the side of longer battles . Connected with this, missile units are way too deadly, despite their smaller sizes.

    Anyway, I am glad that this is top priority. Battle balance can be very tricky and the modders who work on it must be really appreciated.

    PS I am pretty sure the crashes when clicking on custom battle are because the last custom battle settings before installing this mod was set for Charlemagne Era. People should first check that this isn't the case before installing the mod. Or if already installed and don't want to fiddle with game files, just un-tick the mod in mod manager and launch the vanilla game. Then go in custom battles and set the period to the vanilla campaign (the Last Roman works too). Then exit the game, launch the mod manager and switch on the mod again.

    Got it to work! Just gave myself a fresh install. Here are my impressions:

    The models look fantastic, whoever did the modeling did a great job. High quality work.

    Archers are far overpowered.

    Despite looking different the factions feel pretty much exactly the same, I understand that your idea to balance the factions is to make each type of unit have the same exact stats but I think to give it some variety you should strengthen certain types of units for each faction. Armor points would be an easy one to do, there's no way the Frey's and Lannisters are equipped to the same standard for example. Furthermore while I think it would add much to the game to give units unique names rather than "X faction light/medium/heavy". Also I'm not sure about every faction having light/medium/heavy units, did we ever see any Stark soldiers equipped any different than their standard load out? Just some suggestions to get the factions to feel more unique in their play style.

    Are we going to see another Northern faction including Wildlings? Or a Jon Snow faction perhaps with both Northerners and Wildlings? What about a Khalesei faction with the Dothraki and other units across the sea? A Dothraki faction?

    Are there any plans for a campaign? I know that there is no editing tool but I think most of us would still enjoy/want it on the map of Europe.

    Yes, I saw in your last ModDB update that you are planning to release a new patch with Wildings and Night's Watch in the end of December/early January. Is this still in your plans?

    Edit: I can't remember if I already posted this, but I'm actually promoting you work at French TW forum MundusBellicus.fr, so be sure that French players will follow the mod: http://www.mundusbellicus.fr/forum/t...doms-total-war.

    Thanks! The next content update (these will be released separately from basic bug/improvement patches) will consist of the Wildlings and the Whitewalkers. The fantasy aspect of Game of Thrones has so far been neglected and this should offer a new gameplay dynamic alongside traditional militaries. The Dothraki and Unsullied will be released closer to the start of Season 7, as they're based on new references in Westeros and we want them to mesh well with the existing theme.

    We're not making a campaign unless CA updates the tools. Taking heat for this decision is better than taking heat for creating a half-working campaign where every engine limitation would need to be explained - on a sideways map of Europe.

    This is a problem which occurs with all mods, and the solution has already been provided:

    Unit design 10/10
    Game-pace, Balance -5/10, feels more arcade then vanilla Attila, the gamepace is so freaking fast that you don't have time to enjoy the combat and make tactical decitions, like Tetris on Steroids. Cavalry is so fast, it looks like it's teleporting around.
