At this point, I think I've put more time into Mount and Blade and mods for M&B than any other game I've ever played besides maybe Oblivion. I think that I've Mounted and Bladed myself out and I'd really like to know if there are other games like it. The only ones I know of are Starfarer, which I am currently playing (though it's still in Alpha so isn't really that great yet), and Sid Meier's Pirates, which doesn't look very appealing to me.
I don't necessarily need medieval combat or anything like that. What's appealing to me is building up my own army/fleet, traveling around an open world map attacking whoever I please, trying to build up money and dealing with the economy. Basically most of the macro aspects of the game I guess. Oh, and of course, having my main character who levels up constantly throughout the game.
Edit: Also, I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this thread. I wasn't really sure which subforum would be appropriate. Please move it if this is the wrong place.
