Long before the rise of Valyria, Westeros was divided into countless Petty Kingdoms. In the south, the Reach is consumed by fire as weak kings are set upon from all sides, and strong ones vie for their remains. In Dorne, the deserts run red with blood and in the north four kingdoms struggle for supremacy, even as they face invaders from all sides. As chaos descends upon the lands of Westeros it remains to be seen which Kingdoms shall forge dynasties to last a thousand years, and which will fade into history.
The Grand Release of Age of Petty Kings. This mod takes place long before the War of Five Kings when Westeros was divided between countless Petty Kingdoms. Enjoy!
The Grand Release is finally here! This has been a long road, but we are proud to present the finalized version of Age of Petty Kings to you all!
You can vote on your favorite factions, and have input on the future directions we take this mod here: Twcenter.net
Just a few things first though:
INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS: This is a very convenient method for installing all M2TW mods, not just mine.
1) Make a copy the "Launcher.exe" from your M2TW folder and rename it "kingdoms" (if you already have a "kingdoms.exe" you should be fine).
2) Put the Petty_Kings folder into your mods directory and DO NOT CHANGE THE FOLDER'S NAME.
Assuming you have the "kingdoms.exe" and the correctly named "Petty_Kings" then you can simply double-click on AOPK.bat in the Petty_Kings folder and it will launch the mod.
(Alternatively if this doesn't work you can use a custom launcher or just rename the folder "americas" and launch that campaign)
HOTSEATING: If you have not already tried your luck at hotseating in Westeros, you're doing something wrong. You can join Hotseat games (and find out what hotseat games are and why they are AWESOME) here: Twcenter.net
KNOWN BUGS: There are some remaining issues that persist, some having to do with M2TW memory problems, some not. They are:
a) Selecting the "All" era in a custom battle causes CTD - This has to do with M2TW memory structure and it conflicting with our recruitment system. You can access all of a factions units on "Early", and the units plus mercenaries on "High" so you should be fine.
b) Issues with conquering House Tarbeck - This is a recent issue that has come to our attention and we're looking into it, in the meantime we are pressing forward with the release, so keep an eye out for 1.1 as it will likely have some fixes.
If you encounter any major and replicable bugs please head to our Total War Center thread to report them: Twcenter.net(PST)-CINEMATIC-PREVIEW
PERMISSIONS: Anyone who wants to use my work please PM me and odds are I will grant permission. I can say, however, that any use of this work MUST require a previous Age of Petty Kings installation. This means that submods cannot use a separate download of the full mod. I will probably loosen this up eventually, but for now I don't want people downloading my work from somewhere else .
OTHER: I believe I have all the credits and permissions in this mod properly checked out, but on the off chance I made a mistake please PM me and I can correct it immediately. A lot of people put their hard work into this and we all deserve credit.
