Born some months before the 80´s started, back in those days where C64 and Amiga ruled the world. After first gaming experiences with Atari, Gameboy and the almighty x286 i quickly began to learn programming. First in Basic, Turbo Pascal and a little C++, later i learned the fun and creative experience that GameEngines offered like the AdventureGameStudio or UDK. After some years of modding for several games like Neverwinter Nights, Mount and Blade i felt in love with Unity3D. Between all those i made a living as juggler and physical artist aswell as some short (but intense) career as musician in a experimental mediaval/folk band.

abhuva @ Shouting System Explained (Need feedback)

Hey, i think the arrow system works better - its way easier to see and very clear to read the information. The shockwaves are really hard to read and disappear so fast that its stressfull to watch.
Atleast thats what i think from watching the 2 videos.

In the latest release 2.03 its all the time pausing the time-progression. Its not game-breaking but really annoying. You always have to click on some building, leave the dialog, so that the time progresses again... Hope this can be fixed soon.

Thats fair, i hope i didnt sound rude...
In all honesty, i wish you best luck with your project.

What i prefer to see? Well, the usual stuff - post about your progress, your goals, what you accomplished. The things that show that you are passionate about your project. Nothing more, nothing less.

What is with all the whining here about how bad publishers are? They give you money and you agree to their terms - whats the issue? If you dont like it, dont go that route - its simple as that. But telling us in nearly every post and repeatedly on your kickstarter how bad you feel about publishers gets a bit annoying.

Normal distribution platforms like Desura, Steam, Google Play, Apple Store do exact the same thing - they handle a portion of the work and risk and get a share of the money. Now on top of that, the "evil" publisher also funds your development cycle - its like getting a free credit from the bank - and you complain that you have to pay this back? Seriously?

Wow, what a depressing view on the world you have.
You are still very young and you dont want to let the possibility in that there might be alternative ways of thinking or you might, at some point, change your mind?

Well guess thats not a real discussion then anymore and i can just say bye bye to this thread. Too bad, i was hoping for some better points than this.

What people do in the name of religions, may have very little to do with the religion itself - you really cant blame the religion for it.

And just saying it again, tough i already pointed that out several times: there are religions that doesnt have a concept of god, that doesnt teach ignorance but instead encourage you to research things, questioning things, even the religion itself.

Unluckily you dont seem to be able to question your own point of view, what in the end makes a discussion senseless cause nothing new can come out of this then. Too bad, really...

A good argument about disaproving god, think i can agree to this.

But i also think before just saying religion overall is a bad thing - you should try to read some stuff from Buddhism. Its considered a religion and they dont have a concept of god.

I dont see the need to destroy the faith of someone - you can offer alternatives wich is way less destructive. I think thats the main issue i have with your arguing.
You just try to disprove things - but you dont offer an alternative.

I also agree to the point that people are most often beeing brougth to religion, be it by their parents alone or their culture.
I was personally grown up as atheist. My parents dont believe in god, but they also dont have another concept to offer. I guess that was one of the reasons i just read through all available options.

Personally i agree the most with the concepts of buddhism but that doesnt make it the one and only truth - its just the one that sounds the most logic to me and offers guidelines to things i was curious about.

First off, yes - the concept of "free will" is highly debatable. Its an unsolved question wether there really is a free will or not.

Beside this, religions have a purpose for people. They help them to find their place in life, answer questions, give hope in hopeless situations etc... They also act as guidelines for communitys how to live together, how to organize a culture and so on.

Of course they got also often used as excuses for really terrible behaviours - but like with all things thats what people make up of it, how they interprete it and form it to their likeness.

Beside all those points i still think its a rather fruitless discussion - simple cause you cant prove the non-existence of god to people who believe in him, like i already said "faith is believing in something that not necessarly can be proven"...

And just to clarify this for you - i am personally not believing in a god, but i am aware of the fact that i cant prove or disprove it. Its by definition something that cant be completely understood by a human beeing - this concept makes it impossible to proove / disprove it.
Also i dont see a point in doing so.

I have read through all major religions that exist, defintly not studied them but tried to atleast understand what it is that they are believing in.
There are things i personally can agree with and other things i cant.

It helped me to form my own point of view of the world - and it made me aware of how useful the concept of religion is overall for people. Believing in something is a way to mobilize forces you otherwise cant. Really nothing wrong with that.

Also:
" God must be worthy of worship otherwise he would be a creature as powerful as God, but not one. "

This isnt a valid argument, this is a personal opinion. There is no definition in any religion that defines their god in such a way.

Proving your point with examples of poetry and books of fiction doesnt make this better.

If something is of worth to me is, like i said, a personal decision.
It tells something about me (and how i see the world), but it tells nothing about the goal of my worship.
Therefor, whatever you think about god, tells nothing about this god - it only tells something about you personal.

Well its rather funny to read how this discussion is going on =)

"We are talking about the only God that can exsist: The one that created the Universe."

I guess you have no clue about how other religions are seeing that right?
You labeled this whole thread as "various arguments against religion" but you only focus on the christian point of view. Well, thats a bit misleading then.

Also, i dont get how having a choice is not free will. You said:
"Allowing us to chose whether to worship him or not, or whether to thank him for saving us from evil or whatever is NOT FREE WILL! That is ONE CHOICE!"

Thats exactly free will, i have 2 options to choose from, therefor one choice. I am not forced to favour one over the other, instead i am free to choose what i want --> perfect definition of free will.

You are getting highly defensiv in your arguments, just a friendly advice here: beeing able to stood back and giving other opinions a real chance to be considered is needed for a fruitful discussion - else its senseless to discuss at all, cause you wouldnt get anything out of it.

Oh and a thing i forgot:

" He must be worthy of worship. "

I dont get how you can call this a definition of God. If something is of "worth" to me, is highly personal. You concentrate here on the way you personally see (or like to see) God, but thats not really a good base to prove the existence or non-existene.
The concept the christians have is that God is always worth of worship - no matter what he throws on you. Remember the story of Hiob. Thats again an example for "free will" - you are free to choose to still believe in him, even if he throws all evils on you.

If you personally agree to this is another question.
Also dont forget the concept of Faith, its basicly senseless to argue against faith cause thats by definition "believing in something that not necessarly can be proven".

Also, not all cultures have the same religious concepts, i highly suggest to read through books like "Koran" (wich is closely related to christianity of course), buddhism, Hinduism etc.
This will defintly give you a better view of different aspects of religiosity and what it gives to people.

I dont see a reason to arque against religion at all, if you personally believe in something or not is another question - thats up to you and your personal life. But cause something is true for you doesnt make it true for everyone else.

What i dont get in this discussion is your main point there, Ten:
1) God allowed/created evil (or ordained it, same thing): Not worthy of worship.

Thats just a personal opinion, but not necessary true for everyone. And its defintly not a logical argument.
You make the assumption here that giving mankind the choice between two things (god / evil) make him unworthy of worship. But isnt the opposite true? In order to have a choice (and therefor free will) you need to have opposites. If only good exists then there would never be a choice. And therefor never free will.

So basicly you are saying that, cause God gave us free will makes him unworthy of worship. Thats again a personal opionion and for me (personally) not true.

With that your whole arguments fall apart.
I am not religious/christian in the usual sense, i personally dont believe in a God like the christians describe him. But your arguments just holds personal opinion, but not true logic.

Sorry for the late reply, but i dont monitor that as much anymore as i dont have the time to work on the mod. About possible glitches: The mod was developed for M&B Warband V1.43 i think, so there might be unforseen issues with newer versions of the game. But the thing you described here never happened/got reported while playing on a V1.43 game.
The only advice i can therefor give is using an older version of the game to make sure it works correctly.
About using savegames: Its not possible to use savegames from native here, but like others described already you can ofcourse export your character and import it here again, so you dont need to level up again. But on the other side its designed to be played normally from the beginning so you might as well choose a fresh start =)

Its hardly visible in the screen... the effect itself is showing better in motion, looks like green and purple reflections in the water, but very subtle and washed out

Its currently the same map as native M&B, there is no morale penality of sailing and you also dont suffer from fatique while on a ship. With the current Warband engine its rather difficult to make seperate islands and still have a working AI. Mostly the sailing is just there to add some flavour.

This is a bug with the M&B Warband 1.142 update. Nothing a modder can do about... Either stick with 1.134 or wait for the bugfix (as far as i know 1.143 is out now and those bugs should be fixed)

Uploaded a new video now, it matches the actual speed of the game better now - but i am still suffering from low quality / frame-rate drop while recording on my old laptop.

If this is based on the video, then i totally agree - it´s both: a sucky framerate during recording and a too slow pace ingame... but the vid is from a very early stage - i guess its time to record a new one.

Sorry, but it isnt possible to use native-save games for this mod. (Just play from scratch and get rewarded later with way more gameplay-options than native can provide you =P)

Its actually not problematic when the installer dont detect the right version, as long as you install it in the proper directory. And some steam versions are hard to detect for the installer too.
