hi friends. I have an idea. I think sometimes its very easy to capture a sattlement. for example you can capture a great city that is defened by only 100 men (soldiers). and after you kill those men, you are owner of the great city, but what about the thousands of peoples that live there? I think it would be veery good if you do this: when a settlement is besieged, 5 or 10 % of population take arms and defend the settlement. and it happens without your order, without any money. 5% or 10& of the population become tier 1 or tier 2 soldiers and defend their own homes and families. of course you controll those men, but after the battle they go to their homes and disband.
please do this and I think this mod will become much more realistic
