Thread: 12th Century East Asia - Shaoding v1.1 released

  1. #1

    Default 12th Century East Asia - Shaoding v1.1 released

    Shaoding is a mod set in the 12th century of East Asia. During this time, the Chinese Song Dynasty had lost its northern territories to the Jin in the north and the start date (1130) is 3 years right after that loss.

    This mod has been in development for a long time and recently its creator, Againster, has updated it to v1.1 which adds quite a few new soldier models in the game, including armor upgrade models. While many of the units already have models (except Goryeo Korea, which has a very incomplete roster), quite a few of them are incomplete and need texturing work while the ones that are complete are receiving improved texturing (especially in faces) and that is what future updates will bring to Shaoding.

    Do note that this mod is untranslated, so there may be a lot of things that are confusing, especially the scripted events.

    Shaoding v1.1

    ====================================================================================

    Without further ado, here are the faction rosters that I will post as soon as I have time.
    The names of the units are literal translations because I don't have time to do in-depth research and translation. My apologies.





    Song Faction and Army Subfactions

    Many units are shared between the Song factions, such as the general's bodyguard, ranged units, and siege units. I will make a note if a unit is unique if not otherwise stated in the unit name.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Song Liang Huai War Zone
    Huai River Border Army. They were specialized in fighting Jin Dynasty troops.


    Strength: Balanced roster, excellent ranged units.
    Weakness: Units have high upkeep, difficult campaign map starting position



    Song General's Bodyguard



    Sword Militia




    Song Spear Militia




    Militia Fire Lancers





    Huai Army Spearmen (The Huai Army was also called the Eight-Character Army due to their motto having eight characters: “赤心報國,誓殺金賊” which translates to "Loyal in protecting the kingdom; pledged to kill all Jin bandits.")





    Huai Army Pikemen



    Pear Blossom Gunners




    Huai Army Swordsmen





    Huai Army Longswordsmen





    Militia Archers





    Militia Crossbows






    Song Archers





    Song Crossbows






    "Enemy-Vanquishing" Crossbowmen, in other words they wield the Divine Crossbow which is the Song Dynasty's steel arbalest used to counter enemy heavy cavalry. (Huai Only)







    Song Riders






    Song Heavy Cavalry






    Song Ballista




    Flamethrower





    Catapult





    Miao Warriors






    Song JingHu War Zone
    Song JingHu Border Army stationed at an area slightly to the south of Henan.


    Strength: Balanced roster, excellent heavy cavalry choices
    Weakness: Strong enemies at the beginning of the campaign, high unit upkeep




    JingXiang (refers to the seven prefectures of Jingzhou) Provincial Swordsmen
    In previous versions of Shaoding they had their own unique model as seen in the unit description picture, but since v1.1 they share the same model with the Song Militia Swordsmen.
    These screenshots show their armor upgrade models

    Level 1



    Level 2






    Jingxiang Provincial Sickle-Spearmen





    Militia Fire Lancers with 1 Armor Upgrade




    JingXiang Spearmen
    They may look identical to the Huai Army Spearmen, but their helmets are a bit less armored





    JingXiang Swordsmen




    Song Archers and Crossbows with 1 Armor Upgrade





    JingXiang Heavy Cavalry




    Towering Back Soldiers





    Song Xichuan Warzone


    Interestingly, the Xichuan Circuit is an old name for what is now Sichuan (or Szechwan).

    Strength: Strong, hardy heavy infantry and mountain fighters.
    Weakness: Strong enemies at the beginning of the campaign, roster lacks cavalry.








    Xichuan General's Bodyguard

    Pear Blossom Gunners with Armor Upgrade




    Light Spearmen (Unique)




    Light Infantry (Unique)

    Heavy Axemen (Unique)





    Light Archers (Unique)




    Light Crossbows (Unique)




    Heavy Archers (Unique)

    Weakness: Units have extremely high upkeep but below average fighting ability






    Imperial Official's Bodyguard




    Emperor's Personal Guard




    Imperial Pikemen





    Imperial Swordsmen

    Historians usually just refer to it as Da Qi or False Qi.

    Strength: Numerous militia troops.
    Weakness: Cultural unrest in campaign, lacks a strong unit.

    I'm having trouble putting the words "突襲" into an appropriate English name. It translates into Ambushers, or literally Sudden Strike, but these guys don't fit the definition of sneaky ambushers. They're more like fast attack troops.

    could anyone give me some more details about this mod, like it seems to have pretty complex mechanism but you obviously cant understand these unless you speak asian, for example when playing as japan factions I dont have any units to recruit. Also one sad thing about this mod is, its more like historic kinda mod, so there is plenty of stacked garrisons and alot of armies and large areas of the map already captures, kinda wish the start would be more humble. And one last thing now im at that, what is the purpose of the 3 additional campaign choices in the menu? Ill apriciate any help with understand this game better and I belive others will too

    Until someone does at least basic english translation with google translate (which would take several weeks) you have to wait.
