How it goes? Can't you show some new images?
Believe it or not but I don't have internet....
So, no, I am sorry, I can't.
I am currently trying to make social life a bit more... hmm, challenging?... I am not sure.
I don't really know where this leads to and if I am keeping the things I made so far.
I find courting the ladies to be more fun than to actually get married. And what? You get married and that's pretty much it?
Well, I took the challenge in trying to change this. I mean wars have been fought because of the ladies, haven't they?
To be honest, I am starting to understand why the Mount&Blade developer team kept this simple.
Anyway, I am almost done with that and think this adds a lot more possibilities and fun.
Other things that I was working on were economy for example. It is far more alive now and you won't be the only customer in all of Europe anymore.
I changed a few things for the AI. I'm constantly working on as equal as possible conditions for the player as well as the other parties. Whenever I can see a chance to get rid of things like the player wins a battle in no time all the while other lords keep fighting for days I am usually trying to change that. Well, you still win the battle in no time since the game engine makes it hard to change this but I worked out stuff that evens out these advantages the player has.
I worked in more specific recruitment conditions especially different for roman factions to simulate assimilation of cultures, well...somewhat. So, over time and with certain buildings or so you can achieve regular roman troops wherever romans own a center. And from what I experienced while playing the game this is highly appreciated.
Anyway, the joy to develop this mod is strongly inspired by the many many details that are already worked in, to see how they influence the game flow, to notice the difference between playing this or that culture and as programmer to see how fast I can develop things by now. I can assure you that you won't get to know everything that has been changed if you play the game just once.
Well, 'nough said. I have pressing matters to attend to... this time real life issues.
Although my real life sucks right now I hope you guys can enjoy.
@matmohair1: Thanks man for continuesly posting all the pictures. It is always convincing to see how some of them look those I know from the mod.
