Thread: Strongholds Of The Samurai

  1. #1

    Default Strongholds Of The Samurai


    Strongholds of the Samurai


    This mod replaces all castles in the campaign with historical accurate castles.
    In vanilla there are 7 maps for each 5 levels: fort-stronghold-fortress-castle-citadel.
    In total this makes 35 maps.


    Strongholds of the Samurai mod replaces all of this maps with 35 unique castles.
    Each castle is inspired and made after illustrations and models of real historical 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.

    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 ?
