I feel that a full list with explanation was lacking. There was a bit of info here, a bit there, but in no way a full one.
This is what I am trying to do right now.

Still a wip, fell free to step in to correct me or complete data.

# according to module.ini comments :
# You can modify the damage system by editing the following values:
# The first three values (i.e. soak) determine the amount which will be directly subtracted from damage due to armor.
# The next three values (i.e. reduction) determine the percentage reduction from the damage.
# The same goes for extra_penetration factor. This counts only for weapons that have the flag "itp_extra_penetration"
# Also, the "soak" can be negative, meaning that it will actually ADD to the damage, Not sure about the "reduction",
# though in theory it shloud work the same way, but less violently.

Good initiative, brother!

More than a few of these are completely new information for the community! load_resource_nofast, has_custom_battle, and I'm sure more, are discoveries we can credit directly to you! I'm impressed! What hexeditor did you use to determine engine calls?

However, Remember that Erandill and many others have done something similar in the Modding Guide, with details like expected data type and what engine update it was included on, however, it is based entirely on the module.ini files of all the native engine modules (1.011, WB, VC, NW, WFaS, Caribbean!).

It has its gaps as it is a work in progress and a lot of it is my own speculation. Also, I don't think a PDF was accessible easily until I just now when I uploaded my compiled version from a few month back when I was pecking away at adding entries.

I know this is more accessible though, so here's the Module Guide's descriptions added to your tables

I) Module general parameters
1) Versions

module_name# string, is used for naming your module.
module_version# int, can be used for multiplayer and single player (saved game) module
versioning.
compatible_module_version# int, can be used for multiplayer module versioning.
compatible_single_player_version_no# int, can be used for single player (saved game)
module versioning.
compatible_multiplayer_version_no# int, current multiplayer version, used with
compatible_module_version to determine if a player can connect to a server
compatible_with_warband# boolean, Depreciated, was most likely used to mark original M&B mods that they can be played with M&B Warband, however, skeletal differences and other engine quirks never allowed this to be possible
compatible_savegame_module_version# int, can be used for single player (saved game)
module versioning.
works_with_version_max# module.ini doc says "deprecated, use module_version and compatible_savegame_module_version instead"
works_with_version_min# module.ini doc says "deprecated, use module_version and compatible_savegame_module_version instead"

2) Resources loading

load_mod_resource# Explicitly tells the engine that this resource (.BRF) exists inside */(modulename)/Resources/ folder. It should result in faster load times.
load_resource_nofast# NEW!, Unknown, doesn't seem to be used in any official module. Maybe loads the resource in a way that takes longer, but loads more fully? Needs testing.
load_resource# Tells the engine that this resource (.BRF) exists in either
the */CommonRes/ or */(module-name)/Resources/ folders. It doesn’t seem to add
to a much longer load times, but it more inefficent than telling the engine where to look.
scan_module_sounds# boolean, Determines if the engine will scan the module’s /Sounds/ folder.
scan_module_textures# boolean, Determines if the engine will scan the module’s */Textures/ folder.
use_case_insensitive_mesh_searches# boolean, determines if your module allows case
insensitive references to mesh names i.e. sword_a and Sword_a being treated as the same

# Gonna be real, I have no idea how the game determines which trees go on which terrain. My guess is it looks at the total tree types (map_tree_types) and then loads then uses the other variables in some order like desert then steppe then snow, to determine which trees appear on which terrain, then determines what appears on plains etc based on what's left over. I will try to remember to research the TLD files to see what they did.

blood_multiplier# int, used by engine to determine number of particles released on strike with any non-blunt weapon.
fix_gamma_on_dx7_operation_colors# NEW! Shader Parameter, No Native Example. Should be used by shaders in DX7 mode to correct gamma info passed along by INPUT_TEX_GAMMA(***) to balance lighting.
use_bordered_shadow_sampler# NEW! Shader Parameter, No Native Example. Should change the shadow sampler shader to add a border. Not sure what that would entail though.
add_set_neighbors_to_tangent_flag_to_shader# NEW! Shader Parameter, No Native Example. Appears to pass along information about neighboring faces tangents. I'd assume.
screenshot_format# NEW! No Native Example. Should allow modders to set screenshot file format when pressing F12, unsure supported formats, needs testing
disable_high_hdr# boolean, if set to ’1’ disables high HDR effects in the module

3) Multiplayer parameters

sync_ragdoll_effects# boolean, determines if ragdolls are synced between client and server.
sync_block_directions# boolean, determines if block directions are synced between client
and server. * my speculation
not sure, does it prevent syncing every block direction and keeps only the pertinent ones? * op speculation
restrict_attacks_more_in_multiplayer# boolean, forces a more restricting attacking
method in multiplayer. Should be able to keep spamming and feinting to a minimum?
show_multiplayer_gold# boolean, determines if the player’s gold is shown in multiplayer.

4) Performance and logs

dont_supress_initial_warnings# NEW! Boolean, should be set to 0 for debugging purposes and 1 for public releases. It should be used to hide loading warning for modules. * speculation
give_performance_warnings# boolean, gives warnings of potentially performance intensive scenes. Edit mode should be enabled for this. * Modding guide speculation

Warn with a message that performances may be degraded because of settings. * OP speculation
use_scene_unloading# VC, boolean, I seem to recall seeing discussion about this unloading scenes when loading a new one, important for maximizing ram space when in large scenes where you cannot bounce to other scenes quickly. May increase load times when going from say Tavern > Town Center > Tavern very quickly.
use_texture_degration_cache# boolean, should improve loading times but generates cache files.
reduce_texture_loader_memory_usage# boolean, should improve loading time by making
it multithread.
disable_moveable_flag_optimization# boolean, assign ’1’ for moveable physics on all
scene props; no sokf_moveable flag will be needed
maximum_number_of_notification_messages# VC, int, number of messages in battle.
Common 10
num_hints# int, total number of hints visible on the *** screen.
supports_directx_7# boolean, determines if your module supports directx7 mode. Necessary for very old PCs.

5) Savegames

dont_load_regular_troop_inventories# Boolean, determines if the game save inventories for regular troops (i.e. not heroes). Also, savegames will be a bit bigger.may crash.

I re-added a few variables that were passed over as well.
EDIT: Removed the quote, it was interacting with the spoiler in unexpected ways.

Good work here, will add the missing ones to the documentation we are writting down. Always when I think I got them all some new ones are appearing ^^

This is great. We should be grateful for all the customization and operations that Napoleonic Wars and Viking Conquest brought to the table. I don't think half of these Module.ini entries were even present in 1.011 or early-ish Warband versions.

The Last Days has been struggling with Warband's HDR being set to high for years, and our solution until now was to warn about it in the option itself. Props to InVain for finding a better solution with the disable_high_hdr stuff, and you, for making a comprehensive list. :party:

I think mission_object_prune_time is the time in seconds after which items dropped on the ground disappear.

far_plane_distance is the distance(in meters) until which the outer terrain renders. It's useful if you want to use better outer terrains that span far into the distance, you can set far_plane_distance = 10000 or something.
