USE THE BUGTRACKER WHICH IS WHAT IT'S MEANT TO BE USED FOR!

Elder Kings is an Elder Scrolls themed total conversion for the Paradox Development Studio game Crusader Kings 2. It allows players to live out their dreams of ruling one of the great realms of Tamriel and leading their dynasty through it's various eras and challenges. While still effectively a Work-In-Progress Project, Elder Kings still offers one of the biggest gameplay experiences available for a released CK2 mod!


Did you know that Elder Kings has it's own Bugtracker?
It allows you to post bug reports and feature suggestions for the mod in an easily accessible format for the Development Team. Since we opened the bugtracker on the 14th of December 2013 it's already helped us eliminate a ton of bugs thanks to the input of our fans, so join in today and help make Elder Kings even better!

MODDB's comments section is horrendously bad for communication, come join our active community at the Official CK2 Forums and have your voice heard!

Due to the delays in releasing 0.1.6 (thanks in part right now to issues in the current base CK2 version) it has been decided to provide limited access to the development SVN. This access is an “at your own risk” situation, if by accessing the svn you manage to screw up your PC or CK2 installation we offer no warranty or guarantee. The version you will be accessing is the currently in development version of 0.1.6, it is riddled with bugs many of which are beyond our control to fix (hound Paradox for a new patch with Captain Gars’ fixes), bear this in mind when playing.

Head over to our subforums for the information on accessing the SVN.

A free account with the ParadoxPlaza is required along with registering your Steam Key for CK2 to access the subforum. The ParadoxPlaza is the official forums of the Developers & Publishers of Crusader Kings 2 (Paradox Development Studio/Paradox Interactive). Along with access to the modification subforums you will also gain access to the Tech Support forums for Crusader Kings 2 as well as a wealth of other informative subforums and discussions.

Just discovered CK2 and the Elder Kings mod. I think that I've installed it correctly as it shows up in the game opening screen but will not launch. Does this mod work with the latest version of the game? I have all the required portrait packs installed and activated.

Not sure if anyone could help me here, but I figured I'd try. I find the Baltic portraits more suitable for the Nords in Elder Kings than the Nordic portraits they currently use because they kinda remind me of Nords in TES:Skyrim. I don't think it's reasonable to request for the mod dev to replace the portraits for my own opinion so I was wondering how I could do this myself. I looked into it months ago but found nothing so I figured I'd ask here. Thanks!

Look, first of all I'm going say it plain, I not really an experienced modder, only edited a bit here and there on this game. And to be honest I have never done anything to edit portraits before.

But I did a little reading before and have had look, though I never did anything. But I think the basic principle is that you go into the culture folder of the Elder Kings mod and open up the one you want to edit.
Now in every culture there is a line that read like this:

northman = {
graphical_cultures = { northmangfx } # portraits

- Please not that this is from the AGoT Mod, cause I have not downloaded elder kings in a while -
Now, were it says { northmangfx }, I think that's the pack/portrait image thing that it is programmed to select, now as far as im aware you just need to change that bit to the portrait pack name that you want to use.
So, in your case it will be the Baltic pack, so you might want to look into its what it is called, but I would just guess something like { balticgfx }

Now like I said, i am not 100% and I have never tried it myself, to I can't reassure that I am right. So if you would rather wait to see if someone with better experience or what have you let's you know, I won't be offended. And if your not positive, then just don't mess around cause I don't want to mess up your games.

I may, but I won't promise anything cause I may forget, have a look myself tomorrow after work. And see if it works and let you know. If you do try it and it does/does not work could you let me know. It would be nice to know if helped or hindered so I can adjust my thinking accordingly.

Let me tell you i have had a great time playing this mod and love the hard work that you have put in to it. as someone who has built rudimentary games and mods I know how much hard work is in it. i would love to see the finished product that you imagined Korba_MDB.

thanks

Mat seems like the type of person to install a **** ton of weeb mods for Skyrim and then complete the game with his overpowered anime character and then going to a stupid ******* elder scrolls facebook group and bragging about how cool his character is. This isn't his Job, Mat. He doesn't get paid for doing this every day. There are literally little to no people who get paid for modding anything. Literally Nexus donations (which are rare) and Patreons are their only real options. Stop being a little bitch, Mat because you sound like my cousin (who is ironically named Matt) who has the IQ of a monkey, is 28, and lives with his grandma. Like ****, dude.

You could buy CK2 you know instead of pirating it, then you'd be able to access the mod's SVN version. :)

As for job, what?
This is a hobby, I'm not obligated to do anything for you.

You're going to be -really- ****** after the next DLC drops and we migrate to workshop once the size limits on modifications are removed.

Stupid question but why did you guys go with SVN instead of Git or Mercurial?

It's just a lot more popular that's why I found it so interesting. Great many devs who want to version their projects don't ever think on anything else than those two VCSs. I'm not saying it was wrong decision. I'm not in the place the do so. I was just being curious.

Ah by popularity I'm assuming you mean the Github service rather than the Git VCS; SVN's actually got a greater market share in both the opensource and enterprise (commercial) areas. I don't see the point in using someone else's service to host my repository if I already have a server myself, and SVN just happens to be the one I'm most familiar with. No point changing over now 5 years down the line :)

You are going to keep uploading the updates to Mod DB right? The Paradox forums are a mess, iv tried so many times to link my steam account to it so I can download mods but it never works. This site is just much easier to manage for me at least.

You'll be able to grab it from the steam workshop, no paradox account required.

Great take on the elder scroll universe in the form of a grand strategy game. Absolutely loved it.
