Thread: Northern Stone Watchtowers

  1. #1

    Default Northern Stone Watchtowers

    While there are plenty of mods that spruce up the battlefield there aren't so many for the campaign map

    Although somewhat minor i've always seen the wooden watchtowers as a bit of an eyesore so tended not to build them

    This is my attempt at an improvement on that



    Inlcuded is the model which overwrites the the original wooden watchtower this will work only with kingdoms as it uses part of the castle models from the expansion

    I'm thinking of removing the base texture as it looks a bit odd atm

    Put the folder into your mod folder

    Its not much and as my 1st mod I expect there will be issues but feel free to let know what you think

    Looks allot better, a definite improvement. Works in British Isles and retrofit but no luck in crusades.

    Looks good, a stone donjon is always better than a wooden motte, but only for castles that are permanent, otherwise it would be ridiculous of course ^^

    Maybe you sould make it a bit broader, its now a bit like those crumpling fairytale-tallest-tower-thingies.

    I think it looks perfect. I had been wishing my towers looked exactly like this.
    Anyone have any ideas on why it would work in all kingdoms mods and retrofit but not crusades? Maybe im overlooking something simple but I cant figure it out.

    Wow thats better than the wooden ones.

    Do you think it would be difficult to make a tower similar to this:

    or maybe this:

    Ta for the Comments

    The reason it doesnt work in the crusades campaign is due to the fact it uses the vanilla models for castles. and the watchtower i used is infact the keep from a basic stone castle which I rescaled so if the textures arent there it wont work

    It is possible to get it to work but it requires changing the castles to the kingdoms models also (which imho are nicer)

    To do this you will need either the britannia or tutonic campaigns unpacked

    Copy the folder ....mtw2 install dir...\Mods\British_Isles\Data\models_strat\residencies\

    Put this folder into the same folder in the crusades mod folder

    I could rescale the tower if there were demand for it althou I'm not really a 3D modeller so completely scratch build stuff is out of my depth

    Awesome! Perhaps you should make some more strat map fixes like different resource depictions or non wooden bridges?

    Very nice!

    I'm using Milkshape but haven't been able to convert the cas to an editable format. How did you manage to edit the cas? Is it right this can only be done in Max using Verc's script?

    When I add your mod to my game, I get a CTD, with an error logs that reads, "insufficient video memory to load mesh"
    Which is strange because I have a top of the line computer/video card with 4 gig of ram.

    I'm running MTW2 and I've tried adding your mod to my vanilla data as well as my mod data folders.
    Any ideas?

    Sorry for the necroposting:

    You need these two textures in your ...\data\models_strat\residences\textures folder to avoid the 'video memory' error:

    1. \textures\NE_stone_fort.tga
    2. \textures\NE_stone_castle.tga
