Try this hotfix. Should fix your bandit issue: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0y16d5l6c5g9n1l/Perisno_0.99_HF6.zip?dl=0I am absolutely loving this update so far, the aesthetic improvements are great, and the changes to trading make playing as a merchant a little more enjoyable, and it is still very profitable. I like how the village and town production has been changed so that it makes sense- villages by lakes produce fish, while villages on the plains produce dairy.
I do have a few minor issues-
-The chance of bandit ambush used to be too low (almost never happened) but now it is too high and becomes an annoyance imo. The bounty hunters seem to be too high leveled for my character as well.
-I'm not sure about having some of the dwarf lords ride war horses rather than goats, they are too small for the horses and their little legs tend to clip inside the horse's body.
-I would increase the size of npc parties and garrisons, this would delay the end-game though, as the player would have to be higher level to take on these npcs. Personally I would prefer the realism and increased difficulty.
I'll take a look at those dwarf lords. Not a major issue though.
Try increasing MAP AI Difficulty. If it's on harder difficulty you should see the npc parties and such increase in size substantially in later game.
