I'm interested in helping you guys with balance work and adding polish and intuitiveness to the numbers behind the classes. I've looked through troops.txt with the Barracks editor, and found many things that I think would be better changed. Why, for example, does the Elven_Assassin have 160 archery, and the rest of the Elves in the Elves faction only have 60? The same thing is wrong with the other weapon proficiencies in the Elvish faction. Why does the Elvish_Warrior of the Middle earth faction have 180 archery, more even than the Elvish_Assassin of the Elves faction? It's not intuitive that the strongest playable elf would not even be in the faction called Elves. I'd like to fix these kind of problems.

I'd also like to clean up some of the factions some. Gondor, for example, has the Ithilien_Ranger class right next to the Elite_Ithilien_Ranger class. The classes get nearly identical items, but the Elite version gets (slightly) better items. Their stats are also very similar, but the Elite version is strictly better. Why would anyone pick the non-Elite version? Why does it even exist? I'd like to either purge classes like these, or give them distinct roles that give players a reason to choose them.

I'd also like to tackle items. Right now there are quite a few items that sadly are almost never used, because their stats are inferior to other items that players could pick. This results in quite a few excellent models and textures being completely unused. I'd like help fix this problem by seperating armor into a few consistent cost/effectiveness tiers for each faction, so that for a given amount of money, a player has access to up to a certain tier of armor for the class he chose, and all armors within that tier are equally effective so that he can make his decision based purely on style. I'd also like to fix a few edge cases like that of the headless, naked Legolas. Right now Legolas is the best archer on The Middle Earth Faction, so he is often picked. However, players can rarely afford both his bow/arrows/sword/swordshield and his armor, and so they settle with his weapons, helmet and boots. This results in them wearing an invisible helmet and invisible boots without wearing the full-body Legolas armor, so they are naked and headless, which looks incredibly dumb. I would solve this problem by first reducing the cost of the Legolas Armor Set, so that players can always afford the full set. Then, depending on whether you want players to able to afford Legolas purely with the 10,000 starting gold or not, I would increase the cost of sword and shield to put the cost of the full set over 10,000, or not.

While I'm not experienced with Mount and Blade's module system, I do have some programming experience, and I should be able to learn how to do the relatively simple task of balancing numbers with it quickly. I'd love to help you guys polish your mod, and make it a universally fun and intuitive experience for the player.

I don't use steam too much, but that can change. My steam account is Lokrium, same as this name.
Edit: Actually it might be Ashamael, steam is unclear. I think my login name is Lokrium but my community name is Ashamael maybe? Try both.

Two results came up. One is unknown and the other one is from Russia. Anyof these two belongs to you?

Well I'm from Seattle, so not the Russian one. Try friending the other one, I'll say if it's me.
Alright just looked at steam a bit more, I'm definitely Ashamael. Also I appear to be steam level 3.
Added a bit more info to make it clear who the right Ashamael is.
Success!

Hey matmannen, I remember your post to Thick about fresh foods  :wink:
I am always looking for help on this modification. If you can show me an example of your modelling that would be great.

I will as soon as I can, I am simply very busy with a longer essay for uni. I am researching how the great northern war and the high male deathtoll (around 200000 in twenty years) effected female power within Swedish households...

That's no problem. I will get back to this mod on development and cleaning up the folder itself.

If you guys could use another coder I would gladly help. I've done modding work for several other games and although I haven't made any mods for M&B yet, I've been poking around the module system for native and it looks reasonably straightforward.

I've been playing this mod non-stop for over a year and I'd be grateful for an opportunity to help polish it up.

Cheers

If you ever need another admin I'm up for it. I'm on pretty often and can rain down hell responsibly on the heretic bed steppers and wep stealers.
