Native gameplay, within the Calradia setting, with a strong emphasis for improving convenience, gameplay and adding new options (such as quests) to the overall M&B: Warband experience. Any version of M&B warband from 1.153 to 1.158 will work, but the mod requires the use of the Warband Script Enhancer v3.1.5 which is included in the download.
Silverstag is a native expansion/overhaul that delivers new key features, polish, graphics, and content, all while staying to true to the native feel of Warband.
Silverstag adds many new features but some of the most impressive ones are enhanced tournaments, sprinting (for player and AI), kingdom/fief management, and most importantly abilities and troop recruitment.
Even little things like combat hampering (soldiers fight worse when injured) dismounting damage, and spear bracing add a whole new layer of depth and attention to detail.
Player abilities, are essentially perks that add passive bonuses to players and troops. These perks can be chosen every 5 levels, and add another RPG element to Warband.
The recruitment system is a radical change from native and most other mods and has huge potential; it is slightly incomplete as of now, but the direction that the team is going in is very promising.
END 2014 UPDATE: Nearly every faction has an overhauled troop tree that takes advantage of the new recruitment system now.
There really are too many features to explain here. If you have not tried Silverstag, you are truly missing out. There aren't many mods our there that add this much depth and gameplay refinement.
I highly recommend this mod. Be careful though-- once you try it, you might never want to go back to native or any other mod out there.
Simply the ideas involved here compared to most other Warband mods are revolutioanry - clearly lots of work had gone into this.
With economic micro-managing and the introduction of unique stats and units (NOT minor factions!), this game really outdoes most other mods.
Your view on the garrison recruitment and usage of companions for actual roles, excellent work so far.
This is an incredible mod for the following reasons:
1. It incorporates revolutionary new gameplay through companion roles and a completely revamped recruitment system. If Warband has started to feel dull, you'll be amazed how new it feels when playing Silverstag - all without leaving Calradia.
2. This is not a collections mod where lots of great ideas are tacked on but not really integrated. Instead it's a fully developed concept where all the great ideas feel realistically integrated into the mod.
3. It's an active mod with a large and loyal following which makes for a great community in the forums.
4. The lead developer Windy Plains is very receptive to feedback and often incorporates others' ideas into new versions of the mod. No, not every idea you throw at him is going to show up in the next version, but your ideas will get a fair hearing. It's a pretty cool feeling when you see your idea incorporated - I speak from experience.
This mod is GREAT
In this mod you have all that will be in future in other mods ! Precursor features !
I have no words for this mods... its just so good it adds a lot of new stuff its like new game...creators of this mod should make mod like this for bannerlord but even better... i dont understand why some people say floris is better... this mod is like the best mod out till now... i love creators that made this mod thank you! <3 <3
So, just about everything that would have made this module enjoyable is negated by what is the coding equivalent of enlisting entire factions of battle-hardened warriors to sit through repeated, back-to-back viewings of every Disney movie ever made as a substitute for continued training and conditioning, while simultaneously injecting copious amounts of anabolic steroids into the veins of common bandits and brigands that are apparently crossbred with mountain gorillas, harpy eagles, and dinosaurs. I mean, they would have to be having more hit points than some of the horses, and sprinting faster than them, too. Oh, and maybe they're psychic, as well, seeing as they can shoot arrows through zero-visibility fog or dense brush and land headshots on fast-moving targets. Loads of fun. Of course, you would have to be able to run the game for more than five minutes without it crashing to be able to experience all this.
UPDATE: The module gives you option to give orders prior to a battle beginning, which would be great if using the option to prepare orders didn't cause half of your troops to spawn at the opposite side of the map. The "take the field" option would also be cool if the moment you start the battle, they all just didn't break the formations you set up like a bunch of short bus passengers and crowd into a giant gaggle-f@#k. Oh, and the commands menu glitching out and not appearing isn't all that great, either.
