Downloading! May I ask is the weapon breaking system also apply for rare/unique weapons ?

No, they generally have really high stats. Theroretically speaking, there is one chance to see them break, but I didn't see it. The system relies mostly on weapon quality and length. But don't expect to find your weapons break in each battle, it's a rare occurrence, for obvious reasons(like the greatly increased prices). But it is advisable to carry another weapon on your character.

Sounds good. I tried another mod where my lance would break EVERY time after I used it once lol. But really awesome that you've released this version just one day after I found it :p Kudos to you for this great mod!

Now I'm off to conquer Scandinavia, and then the rest of the North! Denmark will rule ;)

Congratulations :D
I love the idea of low quality weapons (cracked/rusty) can break during action...
Maybe the images section should be updated (especially to show town's re-texture, it's really beautiful )

Great new version but i found some things that kind of annoyed me also in 3.0, the inventory management in companions its not perfect and in the new version the quest given by guid masters don't appear to be related to what shows on the quest log. Please patch this up, whenever you can, tnks!

About the companion's inventory, that's a Diplomacy mod bug, the auto-loot feature doesn't work as intended. About the quest thing, I didn't notice it, thanks, I'll fix this.

Absolutely loving the mod, the armors and weapons look phenomenal and really the fine tuning you've done with the mod is amazing...however I think the mod would greatly benefit if you were to say add Freelancer, change the font a bit(this one is cool and all but kind of tough to read),add shieldbash,add the option to view the troop trees, PBOD settings and all that (popular) jazz. These are only suggestions that I personally think would make your mod much more enjoyable. Keep up the good work guys and I hope to see much more of this mod! :)

Yeah also the color schemes between faction names and background terrain could use a change altough we all agree it makes more sense to have a white faction name for the snowy faction, i know some mods give the option to change the faction color in game

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll see what I can do. About Freelancer and PBOD, however, I don't think I'd like them on the mod, sorry. :)

I found a bug: I can't see the arrows that I shoot, either in 1st or 3rd person. I can't see the arrows while they are in the air, only when they hit the target, which makes it impossible to aim at long distances.

I'll take a look! Thank you!

And I have a suggestion: Can you add an upgrade system to weapons just like Viking Conquest? In which I can improve the weapons in the blacksmith and the armor in the armory.

Hehe, thanks, I am glad you like it. I feared that the changes in battle would scare players off, tbh.

Don't use Turisas art for this without asking them. The picture for this download is from their "Stand up and fight" album. Do you have permission to use it?

Just did a random Google search for Viking and that looked cool. It's for a mod, a non-profitable project. If you're that much offended by its use, I can change it.

Hi, if you don't like the font, it is very easy to remove it. Just go into the mod's data folder(in your Warband directory, The Sword and the Axe 4.5/Data folder) and delete the font.data file. Then, go into the SAME directory, inside the Textures folder and delete font.dds file. That's it, you're back to Native font.
