    Default Plans for 0.90

    Plans for release v0.90 (this thread is a work in progress)

    More units, both mercenary and faction specific.
    -Mercenary Units
    --Bonnachts
    --Italian Mercenaries
    --Axemen
    -Faction Specific
    --Clan Spearmen (Scotland)
    --Landsmen (Denmark)
    --Light Swordsmen (Spain, Aragon, Portugal)
    --Aragonese Heavy Infantry (Aragon)
    --ME Swordsmen (Moors, Egypt, Turks)
    --EE Swordsmen (Poland, Russia, Hungary)
    --EE Noble Swordsmen (Poland, Russia)
    --Hungarian Footmen (Hungary)
    -Holy Land Units
    --Recruitable by Catholic factions who control specified regions.
    ---Jerusalem
    ---Antioch
    ---Edessa
    ---Tripoli

    New Recruitment Tree
    -Farm requirement will be removed for building military structures.
    -Peasants will now be recruitable only from farms (in both cities and castles) and at a constant recruitment rate and pool (i.e. the availability and rate of peasants will not increase).
    -Castle Barracks unit recruitment will be adjusted accordingly, moving level 2 early units down to fill the level 1 slots and filling in empty slots with new early units.
    -Area Specific Mercenaries will be recruited at Tavern buildings built in the specific area required of that unit. For instance, Welsh Longbowmen Mercenaries will be recruited from a tavern built in Wales, Flemish Pikemen will be available from taverns in Flanders, etc.

    Alternate early lances for early cavalry unts.

    Various settlement level and garrison adjustments to strat map.

    New Factions
    -Cumans/Kipchaks
    -Abbasid Caliphate
    -Portugal (non-playable emerging faction)

    More to come...

    Sort of. I was thinking more along the lines of what Blood Broads and Bastards mod has done. Feudal titles for regions.

    No. There really isn't any place for a Dutch faction in 1080.

    I wouldn't say that it is elaborate enough to be considered a system, but that's really just a matter of semantics.

    What factions if any are you intending to add after the ones stated above? (or have you hit the faction limit with these three) Also it maybe just me but it seems a waste to add a non-playable faction into the game that could just as easily be represented by rebels.

    Sorry, but I do not share your opinion of non-playable factions being a waste. I also don't agree that factions can be easily represented by rebels for the simple reason that rebels roll over far too easily.

    After the factions stated above, there will be 3 more added for the 1.0 release:

    Lithuania: Non-playable emerging faction
    Teutonic Order: Non-playable emerging faction
    Duklja (Serbia): playable faction

    For now the roster is somewhere between the Turks and Egypt. I'm still trying to figure out a new unit for them. I don't expect much from them. They are being placed into the mod to balance the east in the early game.

    To be honest, I have to take a look at a few things to determine how they'll be placed. They will probably have Baghdad.

    ...and as I said, this will depend on whether or not I can get them skinned.

    Italian mercenaries sounds something I want to see.. Everyone of these updates seem to be very tempting, especially the new factions

    I have one request though. As I have played SS 6.1 for a long time (and still playing) I've encountered one type of Italian mercenary unit. Pisan & Genoese sailors. These guys are just bunch of peasants running around with medieval baseball bats .. I'd like to see something more dangerous, some mercenary knights or something, what is more effective than mercenary spearmen..


    And to another of my "great" ideas.. Give me a Finnish mercenary unit. Since when Finland had vikings around 1100.
    Perhaps some Karelian or Tavastian warriors or something like that.

    The Italian Mercs in this mod are spearmen with pavise shields. There are also Knights from Tuscany.

    I'll see what I can do.

    If the mod team here needs a more accurate/historical medeival Roman(byzantine)roster please visit us(click on my sig)!
    If the mod starts at 1080 or later then visit the "Komnenean Unit Roster"
    of ours to take a look!
    We always help other mods!
    There are moments (in history), in which a nation owes,
    if it wants to be considered as a great one, to be able to fight.
    Even without hope of winning. Just because it has to.

    XXI Armored Brigade. Proud that served in that unit in 1996!

    The mod team, eh? That would be me. I'll give it a look and figure out if I have the required time and energy.
