    [Tool] Re: Bovine M2TW Checker

    You can assign an accent that is listed in descr_sounds_accents directly to a unit in the EDU with the "accent" line that you can insert below the voice_type. That would leave the factions list in...

    [Tool] Re: Bovine M2TW Checker

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I was testing it on a WIP build of BOTET (not public) & a sub-mod of Divide & Conquer (AGO). I think you should really run a check on the vanilla game and/or the kingdoms...

    Re: I_NumberOfHeirs

    That depends on how the faction gets finished off. If an off-map family member exists, the faction does not get destroyed by killing all its on-map characters (excluding the teutonic regicide). It...
