The Lord's Heraldic Armor needs the eagle smaller and positioned upper,in the torso.It's too low and too big.

Roger that. It has been done and the image updated. I hope this is to your standard.  :D

Your character could be in the mod!

I am looking for banners for some of the minor nobles of Swadia. I need quite a few. If you send me a banner with an authentic European look and similar in scheme to native ones I would be willing to put it into the game and even give you the ability to name the lord who would carry it. So start shooting these over if you'd like.  :)

Don't send any fantastical, whimsical, or ridiculous banners. I apologize if your banner is the one I have chosen below.  :lol:

An idea could also be to combine banners of existing swadian lords or others in Calradia to give the impression that two families have been merged and the offspring now carries the banner

For example the combination of the French and English banner yielded this:

This would not fly:


This would:

I could give it a shot, but I'm fairly new at the banner game still. I wouldn't know how to make it look like the ones you posted above, in the sense of the microdetailing, seeing as I make everything in Paint.NET.
James, there is no question you use Smithy-Seeking Ammunition (SSA).  That Carbine has never failed to hit me right in the face as you're going full speed on horseback.
Well then no shit sherlock, get an army or get out.

Send me anything :) I'm pretty good at banners and could give it a little makeover if needs be. Of course the layout would remain your own.

Here is a template that may prove helpful:

Well, I can make the base design, but I can't find a good way of applying it to the template. Although I might try fiddling with the transparency to allow the shading to become an overlay.

I generally use transparency to get that affect. Or I'll just take the template itself and recolor it. I'm not sure if paint.net lets you do that. You could always try GIMP, it's free and pretty easy to use.

Managed to get it working properly by doing some overwrite blending. Also sent you an early WIP via PM. I've managed to get my friend to give it a shot as well, he's pretty good at this sort of thing.

Got it and replied :)

Good work, looks good on the shield as well. the center emblem would only be covered on that one specific shield anyways, the others should be fine. Not to mention that shield won't get much use in the mod as it's more of a 13th century shield than 14th century. Increased armor would allow soldiers to shrink their shields down.  :)

Just posting updates to show that this is not a dead end mod and that work is being done daily :)

I've devised some ways to use up the otherwise useless bridge map icons. Now there are watch towers, and varying small farms dotting the map. No interraction is available with the places, purely for aesthetics and to make it seem like there is more to the world.

Keep in mind they look large compared to the player because the player icons have been made smaller and the villages, castles, towns etc larger to account for the magnification of the landscape. (player will likely be made a tad larger than present)

Hey, that's actually a good idea. That's mostly a precedent as far as Warband mods are concerned, and it really adds to the atmosphere.


I have a suggestion- I believe the Floris mod team created a script in which garrisons of castles sally out to attack hostiles. Since the mod is entirely OSP (I think?), you could also use that script to make it so cities can be interacted with more. For example, if you're a scriptor, you can make it so that the local town watch will help people who are attacked by bandits in the vicinity of the town.

I have to say, it would be fairly interesting to have manhunter/town watch owned towers/settlements/etc, maybe giving them a market too, to allow for some small-scale commerce, or emergency food stops.

Yeah, would also make for some great quests. "Save damsel from Spitcreek Tower".

Indeed.. Could even make some "Tower" minifactions.
