Honestly I do not know how sails were decorated in the era, so I ran a bit wild, but really need your input, since I enjoy green and am pictish ingame was wondering how these two custom sails would be?

Too lore breaking? do they look bad? Any criticism is appreciated, and well, wanted to share of my early raw work with you guys, also bear in mind this is work in progress, still working out the tiny details, but the general idea is here.



And this is how it looks ingame, the Book of Kells warrior one

obviously wanting to share with the community :grin:  , As I saw there are very few custom ship sails for viking conquest, might do a small pack of them for the nexus if people keep liking them

Are you going to add these to your mod?
go to your folder

[game folder]\Modules\Viking Conquest\Your custom Sails

read the .txt file to learn how to create or install custom sails. You can then download them from this thread or the modding section and use them on your own game.

No that's not what I meant, Brujoloco is making a Brytenwalda repolished mod.

that mod first version was released in 2014, unless you are talking about something different / new version.

I MADE a Brytenwalda Repolished mod some years ago, it was a tweaked version of basic Brytenwalda, but I left development due to well ... Real Life.

Many others like Kraggrim took inspiration off it (like well, my ardent idea to make Bandit Lord Playthroughs more possible and Krag making Bandit Lairs being able to buy stuff which I was glad to see was ported and made a reality in Viking Conquest) so there are newer versions that make Brytenwalda even better.

Only reason i am enjoying VC right now is being a Pictish Bandit Lord at over 1k neg rep haha. Thus why I am making the sails for VC, so the only mods I might make right now due to time constraints is perhaps create some more sails and publish them to the nexus, but was wondering if others think my Sails are nice. I am more of an assets and art guy than code guy, so I just make small art assets to Warband, like my Prophesy of Pendor banners, etc. etc.

Hope that answers your questions  :grin:

You like the Sails? Wondering if I should create a bit more, usually end up visualizing and making them in paint.net , but it takes me quite a while to make each, it is a hobby, very relaxing to me, hence why I love sharing them with the community, just love the input and being around here.

Hugs and Cheers!

After 600 days as a pictish robber lord, I decided to create a classic Viking Raider but now in Story mode, so made this sail, as usual sharing with you all :smile:









As a fun note, regardign the colors I am choosing, I am referring to this awesome article on viking era colors https://textandtrowel.wordpress.com/2016/11/19/colors-of-the-viking-age/

Amazing the shades that might have been on clothsails  in the era, wonder if successful raiders made custom sails or decided for more utilitarian looks.

These sails are beautiful). By the way, it would be good to make a custom viking sail with raven on it. :grin:
