I've seen you ask for feedback so here is some from first 20 min of playing this version. Prior to this I spent a little time with version 4.0

#1 When a lord gets captured it lists the date instead of his name.

#2 when picking your noble banner some possible banner options are missing, some are all white on like 2/3 of page 3 or 4 i think.

#3 items in inventory are black and white no color.

The rest are just personal opinions so please do not take offense. You have a good mod, and you have done a good job on it. Any game that has features are going to get people who love them or hate them. I just happen to fall on the hate side for a few options, i'm sure a lot of other players love them though.

#1 I hate that as an adventurer you can not recruit in towns. I get the main idea....and I just what it does to gameplay. Its almost like you have to start out at a lord in this mod and that isn't how I like to start. Maybe you can create an option to have normal recruitment.

#2 Hate the tournament system and the rewards. I personally prefer the viking conquest reforged edition the best for tournaments.Maybe you can have an option for a normal T-system somewhere in the menu.

With these 2 main features being things i really dont like this ends my journey here but I wish you the best of luck and its a great setting. Reminds me of that movie with orlando bloom.

#1 It's just the extra clock that gets in the way of the name nothing else, it's better to have the clock than just see the name of the lord when capture I believe. So no bug.

#2 They're not missing I replaced second row of banners with kingdom banners so player can use them when for example they start as adventurer and then become a lord (those where just vanilla banners that doesn't matter to the mod). So again no bug.

#3 That's just your graphics card that can't handle the the textures in this mod. Check "load textures on demand" to fix it and if that isn't enough (although it should since I have a 6 year old card and don't have any problem with it enbaled) lower your graphics settings. So again no bug at all.

The rest is a design choice. So please don't report "bugs" that actually aren't because it's just misleading to the players going to download the mod.

"The rest are just personal opinions so please do not take offense. You have a good mod, and you have done a good job on it."

Did you even bother reading? It sounds like you just scrolled through.

Don't be an *******, he said that they were PERSONAL opinions, he never called them bugs at all.

(FYI, just because the problems don't occur for you does not mean they do not exist, try asking for screenshots of the issue so you can inspect it further, instead of being a twat and instantly dismissing it instead of looking into why this person is having a problem and you're not.)

He was trolling and I even bothered answer, if I don't have white textures don't exist any problem because there are technical reasons for that, same as black textures, if you want to know the reasons for that to happen google it. White and black textures aren't random there are reasons for that, black textures means lack of v-ram, white textures has to do materials, shaders etc, so if you don't mess with the mod files no way I don't have white textures and you have simple. I don't even have to answer to anyone better start doing that.

Just one more question before I go, did you even stop to think that maybe, just MAYBE jmac really was having these problems? Come on man, open your mind.

You're a programmer, me and you both know that where some people have problems, others don't. Just because jmac has one problem and you say you don't, doesn't mean he never had the problem to begin with and just wants to waste your time, he's providing good feedback about your mod, and you choose to dismiss him as a troll because of a bug he's having, that you don't think is possible?

It's rude. And it's not nice either.

I'm off now, I hope you think about issues people are having instead of just instantly dismissing them as trolls.

Not sure if you're being serious, he didn't asked for help he said the mod had white textures and that I don't want to fix them even after I said to him the issue was on his end and not from the mod and he called me delusional instead of asking for a solution, he even said he stopped playing the mod so he wasn't looking for help. At first he even talked about black textures which only means lack of v-ram and when he realized that and trying to show he had a great computer he didn't mentioned it again. I even lost my time checking everything again and I even bothered answered to you that insulted me before I usually don't even bother. If someone want help ask don't come here say all his problems are from the mod and even after I said they're not from the mod they keep insisting they are and that I need to fix them. Most modders don't even bother and I'll start doing the same. Also once again this thread is to talk about this specific file, general discussion is on the main thread I'll not even look at this thread anymore.

Dude you are delusional.

Those problems exist, you just dont want to fix them. You have the maturity of a 12 yr old. good luck with your mod, you shouldnt ask for feedback if you cant handle it.

#1 In what world would someone rather see a clock date then the name of a lord who was captured...knowing who is captured is actually relevant to the game.

#2 dude...they are missing, they are blank....all white....i dont care what u think u did....if they are all white and not an option....thats a problem.

#3 my graphics card runs the 1.1 gb high res a clash of kings mod..which has 2 million downloads and is the most popular mod...no issues at all...i also can have battles of 750 on viking conquest reforged....so its not my card.

Yes the rest are design choices...which I wrote a paragraph saying that....proor to mentioning them.

To make sure I'm not delusional I've gone in game used the cheat to view all items, have gone through ALL of them, there isn't a single 1 with white textures. There are 3 let's play in the internet go watch them and try to find a single white texture there is none. Look at the screenshots and tell me where are the white textures. So my guess you got a corrupt download , download again (if you want to bother) or your graphics card for some reason don't like the shaders used in this mod. The clock is important in sieges to know exactly when you can start an assault, so in my opinion is more important the clock yes. The tournaments if you actually bothered to check the options can be turned off. Again go check all the 'let's play around the internet and try to find white textures. This was the last time I answered you.

I started a new game with the latest patch, missed a couple of the latest patches, so I don't know if this is WAD or not: when I recruit prisoners to my army, they disappear after a few days. I hope this is not a feature, but an unusual bug, because the life of the adventurer is really hard since you decided to negate them recruitment in villages completely. The only reliable source of troops for adventurers are prisoners at the moment. If this is a feature, I guess I will give up playing the mod, because this is becoming more and more a history simulator than an RPG.

And please revise the events a little, just because I buried one of my man like a Christian, the whole Muslim world hates my guts and wants to wipe me off the map. In my opinion this is gamebreaking if you are playing a trader character.

The only thing that is a feature (and I believe either from diplomacy or custom commander) is that if you don't have food or don't pay their salaries your troops will start deserting you, but if is not that then I don't know what's going on, I didn't touch anything regarding that it's exactly the same as always in this mod. So it depends if you have food and pay their salaries, no it's not a feature.

Thank you very much, thewanderingknight, TSourdille wrote that it is a native feature. I guess it is time to build that outpost you kindly added to the mod :)

It's a feature (a native one). If you want to avoid prisonners escape you must build an outpost/fort and put them there just after you recruited them, as garrison. Wait for a day or two then pick them up. Works for castle and towns as well if you own them.

Btw the removal of the option to recruit through elder was just a fix since it was never supposed to be there, I just forgot about it so it was more of an exploit to the system.

No worries, thewanderingknight, I wasn't accusing you of removing that option. I just thought you might have coded the deserting prisoner recruits, but it seems it was already in game. This game is like an addiction for me, I always come back and there are really good mods. Thank you for all the effort you put in this mod.

Can you please add the county of Tripoli in the next release? It is not historical at all without it. Also Raymond of Tripoli was a the count of Tripoli and Prince of Galilee not just a Lord as in player selection says. Anyway great mod but would be alot better with Tripoli. Otherwise why not play Sed deloris sed sanguis which has it? I know game play is better in your mod but still.

Maybe I'll ad more factions in future maybe not, but not certainly for next version, next version is more about replacing the stuff in this mod with CWE stuff, so will be more of a graphical update (a big one I must say). Either than that I'll look into add french voice lines for crusaders in the battlefield and voices to the orders commands and maybe add jousting.

I basically renamed a book called "The Great Atlas of Calradia" to "Holy Bible" and used the skin of the bible I had. I guess I can do the same to Qur-An although I don't have a skin for it.

thewanderingknight, after a few days of play, I would like to report a few issues I encountered.

1. I am afraid the person above who reported that the game shows the date instead of the name of prisoners is right. It is not gamebreaking, but maybe you might consider fixing it if you have time.

2. The guards of your outpost/fort and the guards at your court threaten you when you try to talk to them, upon which your character says: "I am not afraid of you, I will fight". Though it is funny, it is highly unlikely for a guard to have a banter like this with his lord/king :)

3. I didn't check the pathfinding given to the lords, but some of the lords are deadly fast. I was travelling with my 25 men, mostly companions on horses and others cavalry units, when an Ayyubid army of 115 caught up with me, although they had troops on foot. And I didn't carry anything in my inventory, so it is impossible for the loot to slow me down.

1. The clock script is also connected to the Floris bank system which messing with it I run the risk to introduce bugs to the bank stuff. Anyway isn't the same thing in Floris too? I rechecked the code and it's exactly the same.

2. I never messed around with the forts scripts to say the truth, but I believe that's there just to avoid bugs (at least I've read this somewhere), they're not supposed to say anything.

3. I don't know what was your pathfinding though to answer that question, anyway having the Holy Bible in the inventory helps on that lol

Sometimes things aren't as simple as you guys think, sometimes fixing a small thing can just create worse bugs, anyway at this moment I already have tons of work replacing everything with CWE stuff...

You extracted some material from Ad 1257, surely you played that mod, where you can speak with your guards at the castle and ask how the guard goes, even during the hunt you can say: "Let me know if someone comes to visit me".

I know that it is not easy to mod files and mess with codes, I myself did it but don't have enough patience, I am just reporting some of the issues so that you might add or change the things you consider necessary.
