'The Deluge' is a multiplayer mod set in 17th century Europe. It offers historically accurate factions, troops and equipment, many improvements to gameplay and tactics, tons of new models/textures, a lot of unique features (eg. animated flora and banners, working cannons, boats and ferries, building defences) and much, much more...
I love this mod, it's props, it's items, it's design and idea. Lots of accurate item models, Accurate Armours, Clothing and lots of gunpowder.... LOTS OF IT!
here comes my rant:
I think the stats a lot of the items are a bit too off, unlike a rapier is 32P and 15C that is completely right, i love it, but than i see something like this Halberd 32C 29P 78 speed. WTF? that speed, that damage? no wonder nobody ever takes Halberds again after they have used it once, they always take pikes or bardiches.
Now to the curved swords, i see Karabela doing 23C? seriously? that sword is ment to cut beastly and this is why it removes it's ability to thrust, while frickin turkish daggers do 31C, DAGGERS. and than all the straight bladed swords who do about 42 to 26 Piercing damage at thrust, 27 to 35 cutting. What? Look, Curved swords are ment to cut and do that better than Straight swords, not a lot but enough to be really noticable.
Now to the Armours, i love the armours in this mod, they are detailed to the point, look practical in all forms. My Complaint is, the stats! Alright one example: Scottish Breastplate 27 Weight, 22 body armor, what, there are some cloth armor higher than that, Hussar Helmet 32, really, a hussar helmet? With the big noseguard and the thick steel on top? Are you serious?
That was my rant, if there is a better guy at handling stats i would gladly give it 10/10, easily the best mod of warband if the stats are fixed, it actually probably hurts me more than you, to make this big of a post and feel sad seeing these beautiful modelled items do **** or just do a lot than they should have been doing.
The Earlier Versions on the stats if without the bugs where ten times better than now!
1/10 would like to get to use a ******* hammer speed Halberd who does the same cutting and piercing damage of a small dagger.(logic)
i am simply not getting the point they tried to make? was armor too OP? uuh duh it should be or else why is it armor? that is what native got wrong, they gave stats as if it was just extra health, armor is to disable something from insta killing you, here it is just nothing but the same thing, reason why you only see armored hussars and than no one else in armor is because it is useless, the only people who use armour in this mod is probably a newbie to the mod.
but my biggest disappointment, was the worse than weaaboo community, protecting in every corner as if it is a godly thing. I am glad to finally leave the mod to it's own doom.
This mod contains, improves, and adds on many features that add a whole new level of strategies tactics and a completely new type of battle.
The cannons on ships in Deluge work adding a whole new level of complexity to naval engagements. Now players are free to blow their enemies out of the water,or board the enemy ships and lay waste to the crew with cutlasses.
Improved Engineering system:
The New engineering system is less cartoon y, and requires actually building materials built on to the map. this makes it impossible to make troll towers and other impossible structures.
The time period deluge takes place in allows for mend armed with bows shields and swords to fight men armed with modern muskets. The sheer variety of troop types and weapons gives each faction its own identity while still maintaining game balance in most cases.
This mod is brilliant and i can't wait for line battles to start.
Probably the best mod for Mount and Blade. The multiplayer community is always there and the gameplay is phenomenal. There's nothing more awesome like having a naval siege, then disembarking and having a cavalry rush ON THE SAME MAP. Truly remarkable work I must say...
This mod is a much better version of the with fire and sword multiplayer, much more historically accurate, there is even mis-fires and cannons!
I love the musket/ pistol sounds they really make the game much more enjoyable when the muskets sounds better. I like how you did the cannon reloading it is very well done
