Thread: Faction Revamp mini-mod (Latest update 29 May)

  1. #1

    Default Faction Revamp mini-mod (Latest update 29 May)



    Welcome!

    The purpose of this mini-mod is to improve some factions as closely historical as possible in appearances, unit stats, and some scripts. But also prioritize on gameplay.

    It was used for my personal use but somehow i think it's quite waste if i didn't share it.

    It's start as a simply retexturing units without touching anything on unit stats or recruitment system. But then i go further to that.

    I mainly do eastern factions because somehow those area need a little bit spotlight.

    Alright then let's begin!


    ===========================================================================================================================



    Part 1 : Kingdom of Georgia (Beta)


    Altered Scripts

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Georgian Horse Archery (formerly Crossbow in Caucasus)

    Requirement similar as previous but instead marrying a princess or
    having a royal relation with some Latin faction, now requires marrying a princess or
    having a royal relation with Cuman Khanate, Sultanate of Rum, or Great Seljuk.
    The script will unlock new and increase existing unit pools for horse archers as well as foot archers in Georgian roster

    Monaspa Reform (formerly Tartar Lancers Reform)

    Requirement just same as previous, only different impact in EDB




    New Stratmap Models

    Umbra That's cool. I have just learned how to make units.. I will have a lot of work. I advise you to create base of other Georgian era units. And I will improve them visually.It's a bit difficult for me to work with bones and texts


    A small note-Chukhchi was a bodyguard.

    King and other generals share same bodyguard so that's why i swap Chukhchi and Tazreuli

    Yes, change it - put the Chukhchi cavalry as bodyguard of general , otherwise he loses his role

    Actually,Mokme (servants) cavalry should be available in the early era. Exactly then they played a big role in the success of the Kingdom of Georgia.

    I must classify the shields of high-class units. There are some of my early first steps artwork, after which I painted some cooler shields

    Do you use sship animation for units? I tried to use the animation for the Pkhoveli warrior during the conversion, but Iwte wrote an error

    Congratulations, @Umbra!
    I really like your changes, esp. unit cards (well, I don't have time atm to delve deeper).
    I think we'll be careful to keep the future versions (when they're ready) of the mod either compatible or easy for you to adjust your minimod.
    cheers!

    @Umbra: Magnificent work!
    As soon as I have some time, I'm going to use your mini-mod to improve this part of the world and make it more historically credible. Indeed, your changes deserve to be integrated into SSHIP. I hope they accompany the new versions of our mod.
    Congratulations !

    I am making a mini mod of the headlights to my taste. I mixed green and blue colors with red colors. I will not load the shields with many crosses. Iron frame and ornaments together are clearly inappropriate and unbeautiful.

    Wow it's cool, i think if you add different pattern like cross variations for each color will be better

    It was just a test. I have big plans about shields. There will be a total of 3 - maximum 4 cross shields. But the colors will be very beautiful. When you do it yourself, you do it better.I also plan to make details about the body armor. I have a question. How create you shields photo sharp and beautiful - despite the small resolution?

    I simply put your designed shield and then resize it to fit with the size in game. Make sure the images in not too small in texture file

    I think it's perfect-Very beautiful colors. No one will have such beautiful shields in this mod . I didn't like the white color of the cross - it was out of style. There are more such colors on Georgian miniatures. Now I will classify the shields of the Tadzreuli

    Today I added new spears to the tadzreuli unit. I think I will also attach flags to their spears. Then, I will give all the cavalry their respective spears.

    Thank you, Umbra and I are painters. That's why we do such good detailing. Then I'll make the "Mokme" shields

    really impressive! Looking forward to testing the Georgians with these new models! a question @umbra and @Khevsur, when you complete your Georgian work, perhaps you can touch up other culturally similar units such as the Armenian units? and even other Orthodox factions like the Serbs! it would be fabulous!

    After working on Georgia (it takes a long time). I think I will work for Armenian and North Caucasian mercenaries. I don't know about arming Serbia and I don't know if I will have time for it
