Required renown for what? It’s morning here and my mind is still a bit foggy, sorry if it should be obvious. Happy to help if you specify.
On army control and morale, the formula is the same as vanilla VC, but using the realistic travel speeds means more time for morale to decay between battle/destinations, which does indeed up the importance of paying attention to such factors.
Thank you for the kind praise, although I would personally say vanilla VC is very well-polished and balanced (which is why Balance Mod changes are generally pretty subtle). Not trying to dampen your excitement about the mod, just want us to stay positive on the great game the VC devs gave us.
Jarl Sigmund Haraldsson said:You did enhance troops, especially Saxon to be abit better as it serves the purpose of it being the last kingdom standing. However, every other kingdom's lord seem to have higher tier troops. East Engle just declared war on day 400 and they have alot of Noble troops while my Saxons have less.
Jarl Sigmund Haraldsson said:In Vanilla I could win Lord vs Lord battles, but with Balance it's impossible.
Jarl Sigmund Haraldsson said:I can't level my troops using battle because most lords have 200+ troops and even if I do get 200 troops, mine will be lower tier and I will just get crushed. It is very difficult to go over 250 renown. The only viable way to get renown after 250 is to fight Frankish Raiders on the sea, which seems abit gamey.
Jarl Sigmund Haraldsson said:Campaign AI: Beginner (the AI cheats already, no need to give them even more)
I saw it was recommended to have Normal Campaign AI, you mentioned it was balanced. Care to explain why should we give the AI more reinforcements? They already start with 200+ troops whom are high tier.
Jarl Sigmund Haraldsson said:You also recommended Hardcore Leveling / Budget. Care to explain abit more in depth why?
Jarl Sigmund Haraldsson said:Does Campaign AI also influence how many troops I can recruit from Castle / Towns? I have 6 Leadership, 6 Persuasion on my character and also 20+ relations with those Castles, but I only seem to get 5-7 troops maximum in rare cases. Most of the time I get "Nobody wants to join you"
Awesome job you did in this mod!
I like it very much. It's been a while since I felt challenged in my gamethrough like my current one using this mod.
