Thread: [Information] Mod Links, Team, & Credits

  1. #1

    Default [Information] Mod Links, Team, & Credits



    The general idea of this overhaul mod will be to provide a more historically accurate, challenging experience for the player and to hopefully add some more complexity to the game systems. We will also be working on battles and unit textures/rosters most likely as well. This is a very early WIP version with some campaign changes that aim to make things a bit more difficult.

    Campaign Systems: Dresden, Litharion, Magnar
    Battle System: 'Gunny
    Units: Ahiga, 'Gunny

    Mod Information

    Vassals & Titles System
    - Governors are now Vassals and gain titles from ruling a province.
    - Faction leaders and heirs also have their own titles.
    - These titles are different for each culture type and location.
    - When a governor loses his province, he becomes a Claimant for the title. If he regains it, he will regain the title.
    - Vassals have increased influence, claimaints have reduced loyalty.
    - Vassals can level up over time to become more influential.

    Battle Changes
    - Current battle changes are in alpha stages. They are aimed at making things slower and more tactical/realistic. Feedback is appreciated.
    - Custom battle rosters have been reworked to make factions a bit more unique. We have not redone campaign rosters yet.
    - Large amount of variations and some new textures added to all rosters.

    Campaign Changes:
    - Season effects added for provinces
    - Small minor town garrisons added
    - All factions can now loot when taking a settlement.
    - Balanced war fervor system a bit better
    - Increased building cost, time and technology time
    - Increased AI bonuses to help them out a bit
    - The supply and food systems are a bit harder and have more of an impact, as does raiding.
    - Increased various negatives from bankruptcy, fame levels, and low food.
    - Increased diplomacy negatives from different culture types.
    - Increased AI aggression levels and army budget allocation.
    - Various other changes to increase the challenge and slow down campaign play a bit.

    Upcoming Changes & Ideas - some may make it, others may not
    - Battle system overhaul to slow things down a bit and improve the feel. I actually have no idea exactly but it will be something like Fall of the Eagles battles most likely.
    - Unit roster changes and new textures. This will probably take a long time and be added as we go. We will probably start as a vanilla reskin.
    - Supply system - hopefully some changes here to make it have more impact
    - Increase variety between culture types for buildings and other systems
    - A few other big ideas I don't want to spoil just yet, especially since I am not sure they are possible

    Mod Compatibility
    - Should currently be compatible with other startpos mods (TPY mods) and mods that don't change any of the specific campaign changes we have right now.

    Credits
    - RobbStark for help with the variations on the units.

    This is a long term project and this is a very early WIP version, so we appreciate any feedback. As a group of modders, we have worked on Divide et Impera for Rome 2 and on Fall of the Eagles & Europa Perdita for Attila. This overhaul will have a similar focus but will be smaller in scope and implementation than those larger works.

    I'm really enjoying the game and would love to see what you can do with it with your people, Dresden. Not going to use this just yet, wanting to get some more vanilla gameplay first, but I'll definitely keep watch on your stuff. We appreciate it (:

    Its probably not very well balanced right now to be honest. I threw together some of my other mods and added some changes to make things a bit slower paced, but any feedback is very much appreciated.

    Another thing I want to do is slow down AI expansion a bit to prolong the early/mid game. Whether we do that with editing the minor town system a bit or through conquest priorities I am not sure yet.

    Small update, testing some things:
    - The supply and food systems are a bit harder and have more of an impact, as does raiding.
    - Increased various negatives from bankruptcy, fame levels (diplomacy negative), and low food.
    - Increased AI aggression levels and army budget allocation.
    - Increased AI priority to sack, liberate or subjugate rather than occupy in an attempt to prolong the early/mid game and lower the minor region trading.
