Modopedia 2

Users who are viewing this thread


Ok after a brief discussion with yoshiboy and after seeing the original modopedia thread, I've decided to make modopedia 2.
If you want to contribute a thread suggesstion PM me and I'll add it to the appropriate section or make a new section if it is needed.  I'm sure it will start off relatively bare but with your help and suggestions it will become an invaluable resource for new modders and may shed light on things for experienced ones.
Please do not PM me disagreeing with this thread, if you don't like it, don't use it, I'm sure some people will use it, even if you don't.
Also please try and keep this post free.  So it doesn't end up like, for instance, the script exchange.

3D Art/texturing is not covered, I think that deserves its own thread by someone who understands it better.

This thread is for useful scripts and for general help.  It isn't for your mod links.

At the time of writing warband is at version v1.113 11th May 2010 (It has been updated with info from different versions since v1.113)
This is a quick selection of the scripts available from The Forge and the Unofficial Tutorials section. 23/9/2010 v1.131

Also I'll put anything regarding cutscenes under dialogues.
Some things fall into both singleplayer and multiplayer, these are usually entered in the sections nearer the bottom.  Like combat.


Sorry to bother you, I am searching the forums for one hour...
As you found a lot of informations regarding warband, perhaps you can find those ones. I know it has been already asked on other threads, but is is very important for me, and no one got the right answer. Does items limit number is higher, and how much it is, and do we have LOD ability for scene_prop in warband...
I've made nice roman's building for PoP, but the engine cannot handle it on all computer on PoP M&B, so the idea is to use item LOD ability for some of it, or LOD wuth scene_prop...




Maybe your question is answered in those?


No, but it gave me a good information on LOD ( I was making them manually )..
Thx anyway, and good job, your modopedia help me...


K I'm sure this has been answered a thousand times, but I haven't been able to find it. How do I add mercenaries to the game? I know how to add units, there's a great unit editor, but just using Camp Followers as an example how do I add mercenaries?


Updated with some stuff.  Suggestions for what to add still please. I'm not online all the time I can't possibly keep on top of this without people suggesting links.
