Thread: Strongholds Of The Samurai V2.0

  1. #1

    Default Strongholds Of The Samurai V2.0

    V2.0 out now!

    This mod replaces all castles in the campaign with historical accurate castles.
    +New Campaign with realism combat.

    Each castle is inspired and made after illustrations and models of sengoku jidai era castles in Japan.

    In Sengoku Jidai there were estimated 5 thousand castles, many of which were earthwork castles and made of wood.
    This is represented in the mod with the 3 levels:fort-stronghold-fortress being earthwork castles made of wood fortifications, and the latter levels:castle and citadel made of stone.

    Campaign Features:

    - Extended campaign map (Sorry~*Shot you^^ base campaign map)
    - Sengoku Campaign starts in 1570
    - Destin Faroda's Combat Mechanics and stats
    - Dynamic unit caps
    - Regional Units
    - Better formations
    - Increased garrisons
    - CAI changes
    - 70 historical factions
    - 198 historical castles
    - Hundreds of historical Samurai characters. (over 300 generals)
    - Adjusted uniforms, banners and faction colours
    - All Playable Clan have unique Daimyo reskin
    - All playable Clan have unique uniforms
    - No projectile trails and realistic projectile stats
    - No battle map border
    - Extended camerazoom
    - Closer deployement in ambush battles
    - Reinforcement range increased (this helps for larger battles and relief forces for sieges)
    - Longer recruiting time for units (Armies are not so easily replaced)
    - All factions available in custom battle

    - 42 Historical Castles available in campaign and siege custom battles.

    Known issues:
    Some Building tooltips are not working.
    In custom battles units are shown incorrectly to have 99 men or 49 men. In-game they are correct as 100 men and 50 men.
    At Clan selection screen some daimiyo models are not correctly shown (texture bug). In-game they are correct.


    Before you start a campaign go to Options - Graphics and change unit size to LARGE. This makes the units size to show correctly as 100 men for ashigaru units and 50 for samurai units.
    This is how Destin Faroda's Realism Combat made it and I am going to use his unit sizes.

    Maps only available on the Workshop for now(easier to update). I will update frequently there and after I have a final version I will upload it here.
    Delete any previous version you may have (v2.x)
    Workshop link:

    Yes. CA box design castles were really accurate.

    All the castles in the photos are WIP and are not final.

    Glad to see someone has taken the effort to fix such a glaring issue with the vanilla game. Most castles we see today in Japan either did not have a Tenshu (keep) or had only a very small one during the warring period (the majority of keeps being built only after Toyotomi consolidated his control over the subjugated domains late 1590-ish to early 1600 time frame). Most castles (remember there were thousands of them) didn't even have stone walls and looked much like the forts you created, some with nothing but a motte and maybe a flimsy gate. Is this mod built on Anime's extended map or vanilla map?

    This is exactly the kind of mod I'm looking for! Will you release a version for vanilla shogun 2?

    I am planning to make it into 2 files. A file with all the maps and the other file containing the campaign. The file with the maps can be used as standalone with vanilla shogun 2 for example because it changes only the settlements maps. But you will lose some variety because the vanilla campaign map has fewer settlements. With the campaign mod I am also trying to spread all the maps on the campaign map so you won't see the same settlement map too often.

    Looks great. I always felt the lack of diversity b/w different castle towns was a major weakness of S2. When will it be released ?
