    The gap year thread.

    So, I've officially finished school. I suspect some of you may have, as well. The main purpose of this thread is for anyone who's been/is going on a gap year, to ask for tips and tricks, and to share your experiences, be they good or bad. As far as I go, I'm not 18 yet so can't do any proper...

    Tea

    To put it simply, I want to get into drinking tea, and while I know there's lots of varieties of tea, I don't know **** about them. So far, I know I don't like bog-standard black tea (PG Tips etc ...) and I find mint tea nice but not worth it. That's about the extent of my knowledge. Let it...

    Anyone remember ... ?

    Okay, this was originally going to be to ask about a game I can't remember the name of, but I thought: "Hey, rather than being a selfish git, I'll make it a general one, and anyone who needs the community hive mind to find the name of a game they've forgotten can pop on in and ask !" So yeah...

    Your Favourite Shower Songs

    Simply put, which little ditties do you most enjoy dithering whilst doing your daily (I hope) ablutions, what songs do you merrily and blissfully sing as you shower away the morning or evening, what ... Oh, you get the idea. For me, it's Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, Down Payment Blues by AC/DC...

    [Yet Another Scenario Game] Sungetche & Khalande Passes

    Since Padishah Bayezid Yilmidrim grabbed the seat of power on the Steppes, it was known by all in Calradia that his first goal was to annihilate the Veagirt Tsardom, and all its racist ideals and persecution. After small skirmishes on caravans, villages and the small escorts of noblemen, this...

    Crossbow on Horseback ?

    So yeah, I've been experimenting with this. See, I thought that given the power crossbows have, on horseback they'd be pretty effective. Well, I got my hands on a Masterwork Light Crossbow. I was wondering how it might work on horseback. I try, and realise it is utterly pathetic. The weapon is...

    Character builds

    So yeah, as we all know, the Eagle and the Radiant Cross, aside from being a great mod, also offers the player new ways to ... well, play. With guns, we can have horseback shooting, or you can stand with your men and fight, but those same guns also make your chances of survival far more...

    Dark Ambient ?

    I've been reading about this style on the Wiki page, and I'm kinda interested. I've been listening to some Burzum on Dizzler, and the content there varies greatly from crap to epic. So I was wondering, are there any bands you think I should listen to, bands that are the best of the genre. 'Cos...

    The men of Gunther-Piedmont ?

    Hi there, D'Sparil, I was wondering if you had any backstory on those that come from "Gunther-Piedmont", I don't know, I just find them strangely cool, like professional gunners, and they've just got style. So yeah, do you happen to have any backstory on them, as with maybe the rest of the...

    [v. 1.010] Character can't move on foot

    Yeah, I'll explain. I was looking at TheMageLord's tweaks, and noticed one to expand to the size of maps, posted by maw. As I hate the small size of the map, and having the enemy army basically a few seconds away from me, I edited it as he said (I think, I might have changed too many 240.240's...

    Kheshigs, Guards of the Leviathan, Oprichniks, Queen's Guards ?

    Yeah, I see these troops, like two of them, in each faction's capital (Kheshigs for Xanadu, Oprichniks for Ivangorod, Hands of the Pope for Ellis, and Guards of the Leviathan for L'Renouille [doesn't seem to be a Swadian one ?]) but i'm curious as to what they actually are ... I'm guessing the...

    Why do Rhodoks hide behind doors ?

    Answer me that, please ... I bet if you enter any Rhodok village, you'll find that there are no doors to the houses, they've all been ripped off to have a quick paint job done on them and to then be given to some sapless Rhodok Spearman or some other ****. Seriously, wheer's the fairness in...

    "unable to lock vertex buffer" ?

    Hello all, I've got this message a few times, during sieges. I have my battle sizer at 251, so during most sieges, there tends to be a lot of people, and a lot of people shouting. This bug has happened to me a few times, I'll be in the middle of a siege, and suddenly, error message: "unable to...

    Discipline, goddamnit !

    This is getting beyond a joke, and if Lezalit were within my party, heads would roll ... I've been fighting against the Nords for some time now, my tactic to defeat them (I use a mix of Vaegir cavalry and archers, Khergit horse archers, and Nord footmen, Swadian knights and some Sword Sisters)...

    Are these tweaks possible ?

    I was wondering if it was somehow possible to do a few tweaks to the various files to: Make rain and snow more frequent: in three months of playing, rain has happened to me twice, snow once, and fog twice ... :? Make a few quests be available more frequently: the quest where you draft peasants...

    The scenic village/castle thread

    Having explored most of the map, I now realise that some villages of Calradia are most wonderful sights to take in. I mean, compared to the bland towns and empty castles, though some DO look amazing, they truly are very nice eye-candy. Sooo, the aim of this topic is simple, post screenies of...

    [Request, don't flame] Some armor retextures ...

    Yes, I know I am requesting, more to the point, I'm asking whoever may bother to listen if any texturers out there would be ever so kind as to do a few retextures of various bits of armor in the game. Before you say: "Go learn to do it yourself, n00b !" I have, and failed epically, on two...

    How turn-coat, bastard-like should I be ?

    Right, hello all, let me explain the situation: Having helped the great Khergit Khanate first conquer the Rhodoks, then the Swadians, and finally the Nords, I hought I'd use a different method to defeat King Yaroglek, and maybe take his land. So, I hunted down Prince Vadlym the Bastard (best...

    Your soloing combat tactics

    Yeah, when you start off the game or just play it with a band of companions and nothing else, combat tends to become a little harder, don't ya think ? Basically, what I'm asking this forum, is what tactics you use in these situations. Here are a few of mine: -Rivers ... Rivers damnit ... I've...

    The stupidity of it all !

    Hello all ! I really love this game, Mount&Blade is a truly astonishing achievement for the people involved in making it. Thumbs-up and well done ! However ... There are a few stupid things that REALLY get on my nerves. In the version before 1.003, I'd sometimes visit a village only to find a...
