CALRADIA UNIT TREE REMADE
This is a mod I'm working on, but it won't be released until Bannerlord reaches a more definitive version! I will update the thread as I progress with the ideas. Suggestions can be taken into consideration, however, I must say that I am making the mod for MY immersive conception of Calradia... That said, there will be no ninjas or anything like that and I'll be making it available to those who appreciate my proposal.

The aim of the mod is to remake all unit trees of Bannerlord in an very immersive and lore-friendly way! Images will be posted later!
I mostly use historical background, however, Calradia allows us to reinvent some things and that's the spirit of the mod!
I was concerned with standardizing the amount of units, changing only the structure according to the faction's characteristic.

Very good thread appearance. Good luck with the project mate 💪 :wink: .
Thank you friend. I still intend:
  1. Show the other minor factions;
  2. Show images of the units;
  3. Show attributes of the units;
  4. Develop the unit and faction descriptions;
But I'm afraid that's the best I can do for now, I still need a more definitive version of the game to see what TW still intends to do with the minor factions and I also hope that more items will be added to the game. Mainly for the Aserai minor factions I prefer to wait and see if we will have camel armor, elephants or even nafta bombs in Bannerlord.

Yeah...I have some ideas in the pipeline too, however I'm very reluctant to modify such things right now. After release, I published a mod that reshaped the look of all the troop trees; however, much to my chagrin, Taleworlds' change of values (totally legitimate, I don't blame them - those of us who mod in EA know that misfortunes like this can happen) practically turned the balance upside down.

Aside from the AI, we already know the problems with the armour-protection/weapon-damage ratio formula in Native; in my opinion it's far from optimal. That's mainly what puts me off... uncertain future indeed though. And of course, we can't delegate RBM to take care of that.

I finished the ideas on paper. Now it's time to wait (a lot) for a more definitive Bannerlord.
Let's see what changes come along with it... I really hope TW improves the minor factions.

Honestly, until Taleworlds fixes the damage-protection formula for both weapons and armour BY DEFAULT, I don't think I'm going to venture out "in the near future". I really want to enjoy Bannerlord, but there are too many things at the end of the day that prevent me from doing so.
 
Rohirrim are by far the most out of place unit I am seeing. Especially considering the historical inspiration you've taken for everything else

Yes, the name is fanciful, from Tolkien's universe. But in practice it's just a name (easter egg), of the strongest knight. I'll still develop the story behind all factions and units. As we don't have a properly Nordic major faction, I think it interesting to have one more Nordic minor faction.

Basically, the Eorlingas are a people who came with the intention of settling in new lands, and in this particular region, they were influenced by the Battanian culture and the Vlandian warfare style. From this intersection between cultures resulted "Celtic" Nordic knights...

In my view, it is a very immersive faction in the universe of Calradia. :wink:

Hm, perhaps. I would lose the 'Celtic' thing though. The Rohirrim as I understand them were inspired by the Anglo/Saxons in terms of culture. Their preference for horses being Tolkien's own spin.

I'd probably make them the original Vlandians instead- probably coming from Nord regions and adopting an affinity for the horse.

Also it has occurred to me that you are perhaps inspired by the Bannerlord Immersion Project and their 'Eorlings' (rip).

The Celtic thing (or Battanian, if you prefer) is specifically about the Calradia universe, which is the region where the Eorlingas will be spawned:

Edit: As a historical inspiration, I can also cite when Vikings who settled in Ireland and in Scotland adopted Gaelic culture and intermarried with Gaels... Here, in Calradia, the Eorlingas will also have the influence of Vlandia's war style.

Man, I really thought about it a lot! I thought about making the Normans too, but Vlandia has some items that don't fit anyone else and I think it's not fair to miss it, besides, I also opted to make the mod "lore-friendly" as possible.

Yes, the result will be very similar to the Bannerlord Immersion Project. You get the idea! :smile:

@Ulfhedinn I am absolutely amazed by your vision for your mod! Iam so excited to see more of your idea^^

Thank you friend. Unfortunately a definitive version of Bannerlord will take time... But this mod will be done.

In the absence of a Nord major faction, I was concerned about better developing the influence of the Nords in Calradia.
So, we will have the following features in this mod:

- Sturgia will be much more slavic by separating vikings from sturgians in the unit tree itself. They are known as Varyags.
- Better representation of the viking warriors in the Skolderbrotva (Jómsvíkingar) minor faction. Only faction that is purely Nordic.
- Viking warriors embedded in the culture of Battania are present in they unit tree. They are the Gallowglasses.
- Great viking influence on the Lake Rats minor faction and their marauders. Many outlaw vikings are among them.
- New minor faction, the Eorlingas, who will be a viking clan that settled in Battania lands and received local influence.
