Well I can't speak to the diplomacy mod because I no longer use it.
But in native it has an effect on whether a lord will choose to join you but isn't the sole factor. If a lord is expelled or defects he may join your if you have lands to offer, have good relations (not 100% on this but seems...
I've never actually put much into chr and/or leadership, 2 or 3 points at most. I've done horse archer builds with 30AGI (weapon master and skill proficiency makes a BIG impact) and high STR with only a few INT. Basically high damage bow, fast as hell on a horse, picking off any troops with...
Horse archery/archery is what I go for.
If they have a couple nice party skills you can give them just a bow and arrows and they'll stay "alive" through most battles since they naturally avoid close combat.
And for seiges I always prefer bowmen because of the rate of fire. It's not a...
Where do you get the 7 year figure?
They announced it in sept 2012. Not even 5 year mark yet.
Also skyrim was in development for more than 3 years, and they released it with many, many cut features and was a bug ridden mess.
That was with 90+ person team and 80+million budget.
Calm your tits...
Uhh not quite. If you rebel from a kingdom and take a few feifs with you, you can then swear to another kindom and you will keep those fiefs.
I did it 2 days ago on unmodded warband.
The only time you lose the fiefs is if you renounce your oath through dialogue with your king.
You are ready to go my lord.
Depending where you are in terms of loyalties:
If you are solo: Find a castle with low amounts of archers, in a faction that is currently at war, and hopefully the castle is away from their mainland. Raid a caravan of whoever owns your target castle then you should...
Yep, its random chance in any village. Might be towns too not sure.
Also any time your relation goes up with a town you can recruit more troops, even if you had just recruited.
It can be good to walk about villages talking to everyone and get this little dialogue, quick and cheap way to build...
What are you trying to accomplish?
As far as i've ever known there is nothing you can really do with them while in your prison.
You may get an offer at some point from their kingdom for release, or he may escape at some point. But past that, there really isn't anything to accomplish with them.
wow dude triggered much?
All of the things they've talked about are subject to change, they preface every gameplay video with that statement. Along with need for polishing etc etc so all those texture and placement "bugs" you are talking about; calm down. They are still developing and...
Have the released features for an unreleased game? Lol
I didnt know about that info in the blog, so if you got it from somewhere else beforehand; great. Doesnt mean it was widely known. We cant all research every article published all over the net.
And yeah theyve been developing for about 5...
For what exactly?
Couldnt agree more.
Any mod ive played has sent me running back to native with even more passion. No doubt modders can do some great work, but a lot of decisions just feel arbitrary and it isnt until your 20 hours in you realize how unbalanced it is or you have to use a...
I see where you are coming from but it doesnt seem that much different from native.
In native you did quests for the village which increased you standing, thus increasing recruitment potentil.
This system sounds like it breaks it down smaller so maybe there is still a town relation, but you...
