Nothing has happened to arenas in Warband, so I decided to redo all the arenas and add AI mesh.
Both to make them more interesting to look at and more fun/challenging to fight in.

Only scenes are changed - not equipment, betting etc. - so it's easy to install (dump the files in the 'SceneObj' folder)

WARNING: These arena scenes also transfer to multiplayer. BUT the other players do not see the objects you see.
To avoid this a copy of native can be made and the scenes installed there instead.

If there are arenas you don't like and want to replace just those with the native ones then it's simple. Here's how:
The arena files all have a number from 1-22. The first one being 'scn_town_1_arena'.
Similarly all towns have a number found in the 'parties' text file.

Below is the list of town numbers. So imagine you want to keep the native arena in Sargoth:
you keep the native file called 'scn_town_1_arena' in the SceneObj folder:

Again: make a backup of the native files!

Town 1:  Sargoth 
Town 2:  Tihr
Town 3:  Veluca
Town 4:  Suno
Town 5:  Jelkala
Town 6:  Praven
Town 7:  Uxkhal
Town 8:  Reyvadin
Town 9:  Khudan
Town 10: Tulga
Town 11: Curaw
Town 12: Wercheg
Town 13: Rivacheg
Town 14: Halmar
Town 15: Yalen
Town 16: Dhirim
Town 17: Ichamur
Town 18: Narra
Town 19: Shariz
Town 20: Durquba
Town 21: Ahmerrad
Town 22: Bariyye

hmm.. nice. When this is done I was wondering if i could include it in my mod?
Yes, of course. No need to ask permission.  :smile:

Do not look here said:
... I hope that crucified guy will also be in :wink:
I removed the crucified guy - It seemed too macabre - and replaced him with a torture tool (you can see it in Reyvadin) :smile:

Great arena.. Some entry points at spectator stage please, so we can put random nobles or townwalkers there as spectators.

Oh, I hadn't thought of that, but it would be for specific modding purposes right?
(I don't know the entry points for the specific characters by the way  :oops:)

Praven - now much larger, with a jousting course (that won't be used as such by the AI of course):

Adorno; that is awesome. An adornoment to every mod. That is, if you release the scenes for the modding community.

**** you Fris. :lol:

@Adorno:

I don't see why everyone's so excited about the cage, it seems like an expanse of flat land to me.

I personally like Reyvadin's.

Also, are you using Warband singleplayer to make the scenes? You seem to have a Sarranid town there.

How about weaponry placed against the walls or in wooden weaponholders set around the arena, that you could actually pick up?

Would be interesting imo

I don't know if anyone have managed to do that - and I'm certainly not skilled enough.

The scenes are made in Warband single player and free for everyone to use, of course.

I'm not a very skilled coder myself, but you could ask the guys from 1866 how to do it?
They have some guns implemented in salloon scenes, and even a feature that allows you to break furniture, after which you an use the remains as weapons

Also IIRC the weapons in scenes thing is in the training scenes (not in-game, but the actual menu option). You could check those out.

You think I'm the lovechild of Hokie and Highlander? Those guys are geniuses.  :smile:

Anyway, toying with openable doors:

Veluca:



Unfortunately the AI can't work with them - yet. Maybe later. They are afterall in Sarranid sieges.

Glad to see someone as awesome as you working on something as equally awesome as this.

Picking up weapons wouldn't really be a good idea methinks, because then he'd have to make some changes to actual game codes (easier to just plop .sco files into a folder, that way it's compatible with almost every mod) and the AI can't pick things up so that'd just give the player yet another advantage.
