There's no single fix for the problem. One method I'd like to see as part of a multi faceted solution would be defeated lords and even the play being severely wounded when they're downed in battle.
When the player or any AI lord is "downed" in battle, they should have a high chance of sustaining "severe wounds". Severe wounds would require a set amount of days of rest, say nights rest, and the attention of an AI healer that's only available in castles, before the player or AI lord can take to the field of battle again.
However almost all can agree that these posts need to be more visible because if you didn't look at that one specific thread + page you don't see that post and thus its value is lost. So something that can improve that visibility can be a great plus.
I'm running on:
GPU: ASUS Strix GeForce® GTX 1070 Ti 8GB
CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 @3.2GHz
RAM: 16GB XPG Z1 DDR4 3000MHz
SSD: Samsung 860 QVO 1TB SSD
I have to say that from day one I had very little issues with FPS playing on max settings at 1080p. Only really noticeable problem I had was the sieges and for some reason whenever troops AI bugs out. It seems to happen when they're piling up and getting stuck, I'm assuming a pathing problem as lowering the settings had no impact whatsoever (tested A LOT).
I had a couple of little hiccups at huge battles in the field (700+) but nothing that would make me want to lower the settings right away.
By all accounts, Smithers945 you should be able to run the game just as good as me on 4k...there has to be something that's causing this to make you downgrade to medium, even though it's 4k. I wonder if those dynamic shadows are killing it as that's what caused a few lag spikes for me in field battles (weirdly not in sieges, those have entirely different problem.)
I am also running beta and I have noticed some improvements actually, especially on the world map, everything also seems to load faster for me.
Running with around 15 mods at a time.
I am a fan. A super fan. I have over 600 hours (logged on steam, more that have not been recorded) with all the mount and blade games.
That being said, Bannerlord is a disappointment. This game is a mod. This a 7 year old mod. I understand this is Early Access....but this is unacceptable. There have been such minimal improvements (to the core game)... I might as well play warband mods.
The biggest issue I have though is multiplayer...how can you have a team oriented game with NO ability to contact/guide teammates (minus a general chat that no one cares about). There is NO incentive to work together and 90% of my multiplayer games are people running in all directions doing whatever they want, and not what the team needs.
This is ridiculous... There has been barely any real development past warband....
Again, I understand I will be told that I am over-reacting and that "It's in early access, what did you expect?!".....Yeah. I know and understand all of that. But I am sick of being burned by this ****ty industry. The gaming industry doesn't care about the customer. And this is proof. This is releasing the SAME damn thing with minimal "updates"....
