Manaras Invasion Mod



Welcome to the post of my first mod for Mount & Blade: Warband.

Story
/incomplete
The Manarii Kingdom has been reunited after their long civil war. There was no time to rest though, as Caneorian raiders have started plundering all lands they can find. In search for new, safer grounds, the Manarii have set sail upon Calradia, where they have now gained a foothold near the nordic lands, as their push and hold tactics were successfull. Upon hearing about the Manarii success, now the Caneorian raiders have started moving towards Calradia as well, where their lightning fast and powerfull tactics will be sure to get them to gain a foothold within the lands of Calradia as well. Who shall triumph? The Kingdoms and tribes that have roamed Calradia for so long already? The Manarii kingdom with their defensive pushing tactics? The Caneorian raider tribes with their powerfull warriors? Only time can tell, or better, you can tell, as you might just be the one who makes the difference.

Features
- Same Calradia, new story
- New factions with their own troops, tactics and items
- Newly established cities, castles and villages
- New Quick battle heroes
- The new factions available in multiplayer
- A lot more to come

Compatibility
Game: Mount & Blade: Warband

*Just went trough a lot of trouble updating to 1.127  :mad:*

Anyways, added to mbrepository as well. Manarii are about to get their troop tree extended with some mid-class troops, and caneorian will be completely redone, I just don't like them the way they are now.. I might change them into a third (unimportant) faction if I feel like it.

What works:
- Single player has a few castles added (manarii ones) and will work like a normal faction.
- Custom battles will work as well (finally, was a mess with the 1.127 update)
- Multiplayer will work as well, though the troops haven't been balanced, nor do they have much more than their standard equipment.

Whoah, it's been so long already?

Anyways, it's not dead, it's been... uhh... dormant...
The mod has been ported to v1.134, the caneorian faction has been improved quite a lot and now still get their ass kicked by manarii (and all other factions') troops. Single player now has one custom made castle and some improvements on the manarii have been done. I also tried to make a custom armour, but that didn't really work out as I wanted.

Well, I moved my files onto a svn, that'll make it a little easier to keep my work (rather than accidentily overwrite them)...

Nvm, not gonna write everything down here.. Did a whole lot of stuff, so I'll edit the main post(s) instead

It's coming along, slowly...

Added a new multiplayer map (old tower) and caneoria seems to be holding up against several other factions now. On the other hand, both of them are way over equipped in multiplayer (bots most of the time get the best of the items they're allowed to use, which are quite a bit better than the standard gear). Fixed a small problem with riders and crossbowmen having archery skill instead of crossbow skill, so they've improved, especially when standing together. They also have a new weapon, the caneorian stabber weapon.



The manarii also got a new weapon, the manarii waraxe, but as I can't texture, it's  a composited object for now (may look bad according to the view angle).

(current version is 1134-r1:cool: Server seems to be useless unless I update the download every time as well... Next up release should be around r20..

Hehe... Singleplayer is a bit outdated again, The Manarii are at about half the strength they should be, and Caneoria is supposed to be move a bit further away...

Oh, and I may be getting another town ready in the single player, maybe multi as well, built a snowy version of the earth pieces (about all needed textures are available in normal single player, I can't texture :O )
