The progress report on the next version of the mod.

Hi everyone I want you to know Im working on a possible final update (full version) of the mod. I decided to cancel the submod idea (1557) because instead of replacing the existing factions like Tokugawa -> Imagawa I thought adding more clans to the current mod will make the mod more interesting and will make the map more populated. So I will change the starting date to 1562, 6 years before from the starting date of the current version. That decision opened up new possibilities to add more clans while staying loyal to historical accuracy. So in the next version there will be 4 more clans (24 total) and they are : Imagawa Clan, Ashikaga Shogunate, Ito Clan, Saito Clan. All the new clans currently have new towns, castles, villages, troops etc. With the new version I will also add new colour schemes for armors and helmets. Instead of 3 colors all the armors will have more than 5 main colors such as purple, green, dark blue, gray and all the new clans along with the old ones will have new armors fitting their clan colors. Additionaly I managed to fix (needs more testing tho) recruiter bug and the bug that prevents player to send gifts to lords, towns etc. The player will be able to select new clan cultures from the camp menu if he/she wants to recruit said clans troops. Finally all the items in the mod will be re-sorted to make it easier for player to assing them to their own custom troops. PS I explained why I cancelled the 1557 submod with additional info at very bottom of the article.

Here are the screens from the campaign map.

So apart from the fact that adding more clans to existing mod will make the mod more insteresting and immersive, there's another reason: Battle of Sekigahara. See I thought instead of putting effort into something so little and making something small why dont I make 2 large mod updates? After I finish the possible final version of the mod, I plan to make another mod and that will be around the time of Battle of Sekigahara, most likely 1594. So almost all the clans in the game will be replaced with the new ones and there'll be even more clans. There will be more gunpowder, more and larger battles etc. After I finish that mod I may even make a early samurai era mod, most likely early 14th century, meaning no guns with oldschool armors and weaponry. But before the possible minor hype I'd like to tell you that, all of these are plans so I dont want to promise you anything just yet. If I can hopefully finish all the mods, Mount and Blade Warband will have 3 completed Samurai mods with different time periods to play.

Thank you all!

I love the idea of starting the calendar earlier and adding more clans. Can't wait to play the final version.

Just downloading your mod now, I'm really glad someone is still working on this Gekokujo and from what I've seen this looks really good.

Do you plan on adding any more clans in the far North Tohoku region? Right now there are only 3 clans holding large territories which clans like the Date didn't begin successfully uniting until 2 decades after the 1562 start date.

I thought about that but I dont have any ideas on what clans to add to that region. The only one comes in my mind is Ashina clan. But Ashina already has a claimant in the mod so I dont know Im open to suggestions.

That's fine. After only a few short hours playing your mod I remembered why I loved Gekokujo so much and you have done an amazing job adding to that experience.

If you do want suggestions however you could just do what I do. When modding Total War: Shogun 2 I use the map from the Koei Tecmo game series Nobunaga's Ambition for inspiration. It may seem a little anime-ish but Koei really did their homework on the Sengoku Jidai period so not only do you have a historically accurate list of clans and where they were based but also a database of many of the Daimyo and all their retainers who served them.

Thank you very much! I will try the Nobunaga's Ambition. If they really did good job with the retainer names as you say than its perfect. Thank you for the suggestion!
