Steel and Sword is a huge mod for Mount and Blade Warband. Hundreds of new weapons, armors, and troop types are added. Better, more realistic battles, rebalanced costs and income, and much more make the game more challenging, entertaining, and fun. Credit for all models goes to all of the generous artists on the Open Source Forums and the talented creators of the ACOK mod. This mod is in no way a duplication of any other. If anyone reposts the mod on another site, please credit me. Thanks and enjoy! Bug Reports: If you encounter any bugs, feel free to PM me or post comments. DO NOT rate low if you have an issue- I am more than willing to help! Please Rate and recommend as Mod of the Year if you like!

The Changes I remember...

Feature

Much more realism in the game. More income from fiefs but a much higher cost to lead armies... Core Changes

  • More realistic eating. One unit of food feeds four troops, but your army eats two meals per day.
  • Tournament betting options now include "150 denars"
  • Loss of renown is substantially slowed
  • Fief income raised
  • Troop wages raised
  • Arena is more challenging with specialized opponents, but also more rewarding to player.
  • Guild Master option in town menu
  • New and Improved character creation
  • More troops can be recruited at one time from taverns
  • Siege towers move twice as fast
  • Tax inefficiency max percentage lowered from 65% to 45%
  • AI Lords and Marshalls have much larger armies
  • Faction Lords have certain skills, depending on their original faction
  • Improvements are built faster

Troops, Gear Changes

  • More Challenging Enemies
  • More modifiers are present for gear
  • All weapons are more lethal
  • New Horse added (Northerner Horse), Horses rebalanced
  • New arrows
  • Over 50 new weapons added, old ones rebalanced as well
  • New Armors, rebalanced old armors, some new models for a few old armors
  • Heavy armor requires more strength to wear
  • More options for plate armor
  • New Helmets
  • Sword Sisters buffed a lot
  • All troops have attributes rebalanced. A huscarl with only 7 strength is a joke.
  • New troops... at least 25, probably more
  • Redone Sarranid troop tree... no more does one have to use shitty footmen and guards, but they are still in the parties and garrisons of AI lords

New Parties

  • Tribal Warriors
  • Smugglers
  • Mercenary Raiders

Hi, Lionheart2

I had problem with 2 new update : Steel and Sword with Freelancer and Diplomacy Mods / Fix for all Combos with Freelancer.

Before I update 2 new files, I can play no problem but when I update with 2 new update, game had black screen only mouse can move so I bring up task manager to end task game.

Black screen had random happen : before/after fight , in/out town , run in map , talk with npc ....etc.

ps. I try that Ed97 suggest but still had same problem.

@Lionheart2 window mode had same problem.

@Ed97 Yes,that way only reduce time to crash.

I think, I found the way to fix it now, with this way I play with texture 100% for 2 hours without any problem.

I set frame rate to 80 and set render_buffer_size = 256 in rgl_config.txt.

Thank you.

Good. I do not know why it may be crashing, it probably has to do with several different factors.

I have this problem too, So I lowered the texture detail to 75 it reduced the crash and I'm saving the game after every event to not lose any progress.
