Bannerpage tries to add where Native MBW is thin and aims to significantly improve areas in which game hasn't aged well. It creates more immersive experience for hardcore players, returners but also new, younger players. At the same time mod religiously protects game's core values - single player campaign balance and maintains Vanilla's scent. Bannerpage is a full conversion from Native back to Native. Overhauled graphics, distinctive/immersive factions, new animations, new well balanced items, new music, new sounds, new scenes, improved AI, neat UI, new game mechanics in areas that don't affect balance but significantly improve player's experience and many, many more. Mod gives player multiple new options in almost every situation and thus adds a lot to the game's depth. I am dedicating Bannerpage to my two sons as monument of their father's love. Greatest thanks goes to my wife for her patience, love and support during many hours spent in making this mod.
It is not a standalone, you need to download main file as well, BannerPage Full 1.001. After you have correctly installed main file, you unpack BannerPage Update 1.201 and follow instructions in attached readme.txt and pdf file.
More than 300 individual feedbacks received from you guys helped a lot. Thank you.
Watch episode 5 of the iron-man challenge, Adentures of the Ironam Beartilde,
on the greaest Warband Youtube channel - ReformistTM, playing this update
Problem: some Swadian plains had too much small collidable bushes/trees and some forests were very dense.
IMPORTANT!: You need to enter random scene at least dozen times that new flora results really kick in and start to show up their greatness, don't ask me why - Warband engine
Everything done properly should net you results like this - Swadian forest.
This is Swadian plain (field), please note that rider is not colliding with bushes.
Based on the very large player's feedback: They loved challenge, new design, factionized equipment, weapon load-outs matching arena layouts, basically everything, but they still considered often too hard, so here is overhaul, that should cover most of the needs:
PLAYER EXPERIENCE BALANCED
BannerPage religiously protects Native Campaign Balance and that was never and will never be touched. Player experience is a different thing huge amount options has been given to player to enjoy.
Taking into account that BannerPage will be a challenge for many and that new features like complex recruitment system, harder Tournaments maybe an obstacle for some we have left many backdoor open to help masses to overcome those aforementioned issues, as many of you found. Such as no prisoner limit on Salt Mine, Recruiters in taverns recruiting everyone at the base price, treasure chest items appearing in all shops and toys like grenades and explosive arrows.
It should be save compatible, but few features like new Nord tournament setup will not trigger until new game has been started.
