    Rules for Dynamic Manpower System

    I've started to put together a list explaining how the capacity for each unit is computed by the script.

    I'd appreciate feedback: it is too much? Not enougy? What about the balance between different types of units for a race? Balance between race?

    I plan to release the update as soon as possible after the next DLC. It will help you understand how the cap is computed.

    As this is quite new, I suppose it will need quite a lot of tweaking, so feedback is more than welcome!

    And don't forget this is for the moment limited to the 5 races I have redone, so compare to other races which are not capped yet, the game will probably be challenging.

    Dynamic manpower system applied to Wood Elves. They have less settlements levels and buildings than others, so can't have such a large army. However, for each settlement and building in Athel Loren, they get a capacity for 3 Realms (so triple capacity). And the Oak of Age also gives large bonus to capacity.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 





    All the scripts are ready... Just waiting for the DLC so I can port the changes, add Repanse faction + new DE units, Lords and Heroes, and I'll release an new version of the mod.

    How's the progress? I really like the idea of having local "heraldic" versions of empire state soldiers.

    Some progress report
    - All icons finished
    - Buildings and units allowed updated, as well as the script to hide the icons if not available in this region
    - New units added to the script for army capacity. And now, the capacity depends on your lord ranks. High level lords can have more special and rare units!
    - I've added new bonus for elector count: leadership bonus for the units from their own province, when figthing in own or allied territory, + upkeep reduction.

    What's left to do:
    - Add the new Dark Elves and Chevaliers de Lyonesse units to the Dynamic Manpower System
    - Add Black Arks units global capacity.
    - A bit of startpos editing for Bretonnia additional factions.

    I hope I can finish all before end of week.

    And go to the Dark Elves thread for some new screenshots!

    The update of the mod has been released!

    However, it doesn't include the map changes I wanted to do for Bretonnia. Minor dukedom units are available in the regions (for Aquitaine, Gisoreux, etc) but I didn't add new minor factions, and I didn't promote minor regions to full provinces.
    It seems some of this is hard coded: I could make Aquitaine a full province, but not Moussillon...

    Maybe I'll update this part later if I figure out why it doesn't work.

    Dwarves are ready. Texrtures done, icons done, officers done, scripts for regional recruitment and dynamic manpower done.

    For the next update of the mod, I plan to include a climate overhaul with the dwarves.

    For this, I'd like to get some feedback about some points.

    First of all, the list of climates, and possible new climates in different regions of the world.

    Let's start by listing the cliamtes form the vanilla game, and comment them.

    Ocean
    The oceans of the world harbour many great wrecks and treasures, as only the best seafaring races can truly master its currents and tides.

    This is used only for Galleon's Graveyard. Not much to day about it.

    Wasteland
    Scorched or scoured - nothing grows here and only a few races could survive in this region, let alone thrive.
    This include skavenblight, hellpit, the badlands, and nagarythe islands.
    All grouped together. But I don't see why orcs, skaven or Alith Anar should like the same place.

    So I propose to split this into 3:
    - Skaven waste
    - Badlands
    - Wastelands

    Desert
    The sun burns and very little grows here, yet the shifting sands of this region hide more than mere dunes - certain races have proven tenacious in this climate.
    Mostly in the Southlands
    What I don't like here is that it's a suitable place for too many race. Bretonia and Empire like it, because of Crusading states and Sudenburg...
    First, I propose to split in "Desert coast", and "Desert hinterland". This is done in most climate mods.
    Second, I can have a difference between Crusading Factions and other Bretonian factions.

    Jungle
    Dense jungle is hot and humid, and often home to creatures and plants that consider potential empire-builders to be prey.
    Most of Lustria is like that, as well a east coast of southlands and Dragon Isles.
    Here, same as for desert, I plan to split in two: "Jungle Coast", where several factions settle, and "Deep jungle", more or less limited to Lizardmen.

    For there, I have a first question. Should the Vampire Coast have its own climate? Like "Swamp", Or should it be the same as the rest of the jungle areas?

    Island
    Climate on the isles in this region is changeable. However, the trees grow tall and strong, the hunting is good, and crops can be grown by competent farmers.
    This is actually for Ulthuan (+Chupayotl and Star Tower). I may split that in two "Ulthuan" and "Tropical Island".

    And question 2 : I'm considering making the gate province their own climate "Annulli mountain pass". I don't think they should have the same climate/bonuses as the rest of Ulthuan. Good idea?


    Temperate
    The terrain of this region consists of lush grasslands and sprawling forests, with food and resources in abundance.
    This is for Bretonia, Empire, Sylvania, Kislev, Estalia, Tilea and Border Princes. All considered the same.

    So I'm considering splitting that in several:
    - Taiga for Kislev, colder climate. For me it's mostly flat terrain, snow, and snow covered pine trees.
    - Southern Temperate: for Estalia, Tilea and Border Princes. Which are actually almost all coastal regions, so no need to differentiate them. I see them as gentle hill + deciduous trees mostly.
    - Northern temperate, for Empire. With a subdivision : coastal / hinterland. For me it's mostly forested area, mostly pine trees.
    - Temperate, for Bretonnia. With a subdivision : coastal / hinterland. Mostly grassland, with some forested area, mix of pine and deciduous trees.


    Question 3 : should their be a "grassland" climate for Averland / Solland, maybe Wissenland? It seems less forested than the rest of the Empire.

    Question 4 : I'm considering making the fortprovince their own climate "Mountain pass". I don't think they should have the same climate/bonuses as the rest. Good idea?

    Question 5 : should Sylvania be treated as the other Northern Temperate? I'm considering adding a "Dark forest" or something like this for these regions, with bonus for VC and penalties for others.


    Savannah
    Scattered tree growth is broken by course grasslands and watering holes. Here, the climate is hot and the bugs grow large.
    Can be found in the isthmus of Lustria, and Gnoblar countries.
    I think they are fine as they are.


    Chaotic Wasteland
    Nature’s rules do not apply in regions under the influence of the Ruinous Powers. Only the followers of the Dark Gods could hope to remain here, and even they do so at great personal risk.
    Use in Norcsa, and North of Naggaroth.

    I may just change the name and and icons.

    Question 6: should Norsca, with fjord/jagged rocks, bt its own climate, separate from Nothern Naggaroth?

    Mountain
    The snow-capped peaks of this world scrape the sky. Mountainous regions are hazardous, although those races that inhabit them rarely live on the surface.
    They are found in well, mountains... but they are all the same.

    I'm considering splitting that in several
    - Desert mountains, west of Araby
    - Jungle mountains, Southlands
    - Wolrd Edge mouintains, split in two North (with snow) and South (without)
    - Naggaroth mountain
    - "regular" mountain : all the others.


    Magical Forest
    Steeped in magic, just who is allowed to remain in the forests' interior is the will of the trees themselves and their spirit allies.
    Athel Loren, Laurelorn, Gaen Vale and Heart of the Jungle/

    Question 7: I'm considering making Athel Loren is own climate. Kind of "Wilder" than the other regions (ie more hostile for non WE). Because Athel Loren could be somewhat hostile to HE, but Gaen Vale shouldn't be hostile to HE.

    Frozen
    Eternal winter blights this region. Lakes of ice, fierce shard storms and snow-covered fjords scatter the environment. It takes a determined kind of people to eke out a life here.
    This is for a a few regions between Kislev and Norsca, for Albion, and for almost all of Naggaroth.
    And probably the one I dislike the most.
    I'm ok with Chill Road being Frozen, but why Ssildra Tor, just next to Hexoatl jungle, should be Frozen?

    So I'd like to split in at least two:
    - "Frozen" between Norsca and Kislev, +Iron Mountain, Chill Road, Road of Skulls, Deadwood
    - "Something else" for Titan Peaks, Black Coast, Obsidian Peaks, Briken Lands.

    I don't want to make it the same climate as Kislev. I see Kislev more with Pine Trees, and this part of Naggaroth more with barren trees.

    Question 8: suggest a name for "Something else"
    Question 9: what Albion? Frozen of "soemthing else"
    Question 10: Hag Graef area: Frozen of "soemthing else"?

    Beside these general climates, I have seen some mods introduce a few specific climate, that could give different bonus to differente race:

    - Extensive Dwarves holds, for the most important dwarven regions (Karak Norn, Karak Izor, Karak Hirn, Zufhbar, Karaz-a-Karak, Karak-Kadrin, Ekrund, Black Crag, Karak EIght Peaks; Karak Azul, Karak Zorn, Mount Gunbad, Krak Ungor, Karak Drak...).
    - Imperial cities, (Altdorf, Middenheim, Nuln, Talabheim, Averheim and Marienburg).
    - Temple cities (Hexoatl, Tlaxtlan, Xlanluhapec, Itza)

    Question 11: are these special place a good idea?
    Question 12: should it be expended for the 6 major DE cities?

    Any other comment or suggestion?

    Suitability chart

    This chart shows the suitability of the different climates for each culture/faction.

    I've kept the 3 colours : Green = suitable, Orange = unsuitable, Red = uninhabitable.
    However, I want to have more flexibility than just these 3 levels, so I've given a suitability score from 1 to 9
    9 = Perfect, will give no penatly, and even some bonusd
    8 = Very good : only small penalties, and not always
    7 = Good: some penalties
    4 to 6 : unsuitable, with more penalties. Still possible to settle here, but growth will be slower, and cost higher.
    1 to 3 : larger penalties. At 1, the region will be virtually useless.

    Please comment the suitability chart, I'm interested by feedback. I will detail the exact effects later.
