See what started it all! 



Download Sword of Damocles Source Code

Download:  Sword of Damocles V4.0 Source Code          
You may use this code under few restrictions.  Most notably by using this code you are obliged to release your own source code.  THIS IS AN OSP GAME!
We will publish the 5.0 source code once it is determined stable. 
 


Mount&Blade Secret 1.011 Patch
Taleworlds will release patches without releasing patch version numbers.  Sword of Damocles requires this patch for all dialogs in the new mercenary guild scenes to work correctly.  In addition, this patch adds the ability to keep over 32 troop types in party (needed with over 300 new troops) and increased game engine stability.  Even if you think you have the latest 1.011 patch for Mount&Blade, you may not have the latest version!!! 
This patch is save game compatible, simply install over old copy (no need to uninstall first) and enjoy the troop cap limit being removed!



Useful Mods that work with Sword of Damocles

Speed & Stability 1.0 for v.1.011 (Mount & Blade)
Warning:  Requires installment PRIOR to other mods and is not save-game compatible.  Increases performance by adding lods to all Native models.
 
Zaro's Graphical Enhancement for v.1.011 (Mount & Blade)
Changes most textures (terrain, buildings, armors, etc), modifying battle and campaign maps, map icons, scenes and meshes (vegetation, map icons, buildings) to produce a more visually interesting environment

Battle Size Changer v1.1 for M&B .700 - 1.011+
Allows you to increase the amount of units on the battlefield.  Warning:  Using this mod may cause crashes on your system if you do not decrease graphic settings. 
 


Sub-mod Variants
Unfortunately, none of these variants are current with the most up-to-date version.  Any volunteers?

Sword of Damocles V4 - Gunpowder Invasion V1
Latest compatible version is SoD V4
The thunder of guns will take Calradia by storm, all will fall to the might of the enemy, known as Сполучені південної Конфедерації (United Southern Confederacy)

Sword of Damocles V4 - Undead Invasion 
Latest compatible version is SoD V4
After 200 days Caladria will be invaded by Arch Lich and his 80 Necromancers leading huge undead army.  They are reviving defeated enemies and slaughtering towns and villages population to create larger army.  Undeads are not as strong as The Legion from Sword of Damocles - Invasion.  But you have less time to prepare!

Sword of Damocles V4 - Auxiliarii v1.6d
Latest compatible version is SoD V4
New invasion script, new mechanic for auto-resolved battles, and lots more options and features….



Warband (Initial Transfer)
 
Sword of Damocles: Warlords Sub-Forum
 
Sword of Damocles - Warlords (Test Combatant)
Latest compatible version is Warband v1.134
I didn't want the mod to be just like SOD 4.1, but there are a lot of new features and scripts that have been converted to Warband.

Can anyone post some links to SoD signature banners?  I don’t have time to search for them and test 4.6 stuff out. 

All the ones we have are getting a little old.  Anyone volunteer to make some with the new themes in mind (merc guilds + laws)?  I may make one in the future when I get some time, but I think it’s time for a new look. 

I’ll stick your name in the credits if you make an awesome one.  It has to be sweet though.

There are tons of screenshots in the links above that could be used to make a .gif (swap through pictures of troops).  I may get to it in the future but I am swamped with my current scene making activities.

I can no longer restrain myself from saying what I believe I have stated before. I consider this mod the greatest in the history of M&B, it has come such a long way and is still being improved, and has sparked the imagination of many to gain more of a connection to the game, or to create a story about it. It has such great options and really allows you to imagine a deep story behind it all. It gives you a role other than some random adventurer, it has so many great new items when compared to Native, and it was just amazing how the new 5 factions were integrated and formed to be good at specific areas of battle!

Woot first person on the year 2011 to post, anyways i got overly bored and so i did some major upgrading to my scenes that i alter, some of which i redid or added on. enjoy(i used SOD for all scenes)

first i remade Dhirim exterior, keeping the old structures of the surrounding town(didn't touch the town because if i did i would not hesititate to redo entire map which takes months), i remade Dhirim's Interior completely. i Also did a slight modfyication to Tihr castle interior.
Hope you all enjoy and i must say thanks to the SOD team for creating a very attractive, fun mod for mount&blade your guys are awesome

(click to show/hide)
features in this scene:
added new outer wall, a river, rasied the walls, towers, and gatehouse to make it higher, added in artillery to cornerwalls, added outer gate, banners, brazier fires, portcuilis, new armory inside the entrance to castle and a resting area also exists there.

(click to show/hide)
features: if you head towards the castle door you will see a armoury on your right and a resting room on the left, added stairwell. and raised entrance to better height, added in attachments to the sides of the gate to create a large grandeur looking structure.

(click to show/hide)
features: this is the castle interior of Dhirim, built with the english fushion and asian fushion of kingship, treasure and chancelor both hav e desk on left and right marshalls and lords all lined up, jester and lady at the sofa areas both left and right side. added items, large hook lances, gothic chairs, tables, sofas, chests, carpets, swords, books, open books, helmets, lamps, removed one light, rearanged banners, and decorative shield.
(click to show/hide)
features: this is from the throne point of view still Dhirim's castle interior.

(click to show/hide)
features: Tihr Castle interior, basically the same from my old nothing has moved, i did move the gothic chair forward by about half a meter, added in a second platform.

This is excellent work, but worthy of its own thread (i.e. out of place in this topic - if you copy and paste your topic in new thread, I can clean this one up).  I'd like to include these updates before we release.  The easiest way would be to just send me the scene files and I'll include them in the package I am getting ready to send Kuba.  The only Native scenes I updated was Sargoth, Tulga, Jelkala, Reyvadin, and Praven.  For these capitol cities, I added passageways to the Slaver bases so you can actually walk through the city and go to the Slaver base (opposed to just clicking on the link in the main city menu). 

Since you did not work on these cities, I should have no problem implmenting your scenes into SoD 5.0.  Did you add any new props?  If so, its also easy for me to handle.  Just PM me a download link and I'll add yu to the contributor credits list. 

Thanks!

Sure I'll make new post, I did do some work on reyadin, jelkala, praven, suno, bulgua castle, tihr, dhirim, and chalbeak castle. But majority are just castle interior, due to the fact that if I do redesign the town or castle it would take months to finish. Yea sure I'll send you any of which you would like. Aldelen village however has no ai mesh so the ai do get stuck, I'll still send it to you if you would like but it wont function properly with bandit raids or faction lord raids

You should be able to install the patch (which is actually the full game) without uninstalling anything.  However, I am not sure how any other mod you have installed will perform (graphic enhancements, etc.).  Safest bet would be to uninstall and then reinstall with ninja version.  Your cd key will be in registry so it's an easy swap. 

The troop type limitation removal alone is worth it.  Especially the way 5.0 upgrades troops!

Have fun
