I thought some dialogs were a little bland, especially the ones where you have list of things (such as the tavern minstrel maiden list or the looking for from lord/ladies), things are also a bit cumbersome there, since you have to go into the notes from the dialog and manually search for the character to have some basic information like relatives or feeling toward the player.

I also changed the mechanic of browsing the lord/lady so that you're brought back to the list instead of being brought back to the dialog where you ask for the list (didn't apply the same change to the minstrel dialog).

  • Lord/Ladies location of someone dialog:
    • Relation string toward player added ("knows of you" is a new one, used when player has relation but no string).
    • A married lady display its husband's name
    • Lord's display their father (and/or mother)
    • Prisoner status for male Lords is displayed
    • Changes to Maiden is identical to the ones made for minstrel
    • loop back to list after selecting an entry, use the leave entry to go back to the main lord/lady dialog
  • Minstrel eligible maiden dialog:
    • Maiden's closest male relative is displayed as well as their relation (daughter or pupil for sisters/nieces)
    • Betrothal status and name of the suitor displayed
  • Select emissary dialog:
    • Adds a string (title like) to companion name, to reflect skill level (strings for persuasion only for now) according to tiers (same as the party bonus tiers).
                NB: this one a bit of a work in progress, it has starting elements to extend it for use with other skills and set the new string, title like, for the duration of the mission
  • Select kingdom for action dialog:
    • Adds player's relation to ruler string and kingdom relation string to the dialog
Screenshots:

Just new scripts, new strings and hooks so using this with a previous savegame shouldn't cause any problem.

NB: I use this with my modified title system (see thread in The Forge) so the lord/ladies' land ownership and relation to ruler informations automatically appears when their name is used.

Strings' font in the ingame dialogs scale automatically, so you can put quite a bit in there.

Note that the new scripts are highly context sensitive, using them in another dialog context than the ones used here should check the global strings and register in the new context to ensure compatibility.

here is the code (for Warband v1.127), feel free to reuse anywhere  (this is v1.0):
Changelog:
v1.0:
  • Initial release.

  • in module_strings.py add these the end of the tuple:

sorry, I forgot to put in the new strings I added in module_strings.py (OP updated), I really shouldn't make these post late at night :smile:
