Calradia Reimagined takes us back to a different version of the M&B land we all know so well. What if the Swadians had decided that Archers and Shock Infantry would serve them better in the forested hills of their lands? What if they had never even been called the Kingdom of Swadia? What if the Rymor Republic was formed when the Mountain Towns broke away from the Kingdom of Anglior? This mod brings in new factions, new mechanics, new graphics and an entirely new feel to the base game.
This mod is a good concept, there is no doubt the modder who made this has an idea what people want. Unfortunately the execution of this mod was poor. I have played this mod before v.1's release and I didn't enjoy it then. It is now officially released and worse off. The mod creator clearly has either abandoned this mod for his own sanity and lack of skill or sincerely hates the Mount and Blade community. I have no idea why this is so well regarded but for some reason it is. Let me elaborate on why I feel this way. First off, bugs. Bugs in a mod are not something that is rare and I appreciate modding can be hard however there are bugs that still remain in this game since earlier versions. Rather than adding new features fix your mod. I am sorely disappointed with how broken the mod is in it's current state, especially after it's "official release". With a game like Mount and Blade I like to immerse myself, this is made extremely hard by the fact that when I ask to look at my followers gear they abandon me and wish my on my merry way. This again being a bug however I feel this is more of a issue with immersion. another issue I have with immersion is the mini map that dominates the top left of my screen. Now I would not mind if it were not a huge issue when it comes to sieges and I can not see the volley of arrows that are about to reign upon me. The one truly irritating bug is the boots. Why does my hero feel the need to indulge his deep boot fetish after battle. By this I mean I ask him get the best gear from the loot and he decides to bask himself in the glory of a soldiers boot. This is taking bugs to a brand new level I have a problem trying to believe this isn't the modder trolling the players. Not only is my best man covered in boots but his expensive gear that I have purchased has been erased. This is not the only issues but the most important ones I had to address and I am out of character space. All of the above were found in less than 10 minutes of gameplay
It hurts to have to come here and slam this mod like I’m about to do because I use to love this mod, it was my go to thing when I was bored, but this full version he/she put out is crap. So many things are broken, badly done, horridly implemented or just disaster-ly placed that the mod is now neigh unplayable. The tournament system, which is a good idea to be honest, is just horridly built, its next to impossible for a player to win, at any level or skill due to how poorly done the armament system is. So many of the costume castle and town designs are just crap, when I’m sitting there for near half an hour because the invading NPC’s don’t know how to climb up the walls only to have to try and climb down myself to kill them, you know someone F’ed up. And the bandit hero’s, a good idea, badly played, every other month(in game)I’m having to fix my name because it suddenly changes to a date and a place or even at one point the word ‘yes.’ and thus taking time out of my session that I could be spending plotting or fighting. One last thing I have noticed is that the chat box just vanishes for no reason at all making me miss vital messages important notices and other things to name a few. The fact that I’m finding myself having to cheat more and more just to try and balance out what is broken in this mod now tells it all, I’m sorry but it is just ****, the only reason I don’t give it a 1/10 rating is my hopes that it will get fixed in the future and once again be playable, but for now I wash my hands of it.
You Can State That My Modification Is Your Calradia Reimagined But If You See On A More Correct Note You Do Not Own All Of The Built In Features To Your Game My Version Has A More Enhanced Introductive Feature System With A More Indeapth Way Of Using The Mods Installed Like The Pavise Ive Actualy Got That Half Way Done And On Mine You Can Be Raided By Other Factions On The Portable Outposts And Forts You Can Even Customize My Custom Units With Anything And Everything Ingame.
Also I Did Not Copy Your Modification I Simply Took The Idea Of Your Factions And Used The Native Complication Base.
