Update 2

DragonbornsWarLogo

It hasn't been long since the first update, however that is because we have been able to put a lot of time into the mod lately. This update will go into building and garrison management.

Building

The basic building mechanic has been added into the mod.

Barracks

To build something, you must talk to your construction manager. He will then ask what location you wish to build in, and then what you want being built. If you have the correct amount of gold, he will then construct the building. Now that we have created the mechanic, we now need to add different buildings to the forts. One of the first building you will want to build are the barracks. This will allow you to recruit a garrison for the fort or city, and also recruit a general.

Garrison

Once you have a barracks, you will be able to recruit a garrison. To recruit a garrison, you will need to recruit a general, then ask him about recruitment.

Recruit

Then you will need to give him a location to recruit a garrison for.

Garrison

The General will then recruit a garrison for the fort, that you will have to pay weekly to maintain.

Dragonborn's Soldier

Garrisons have three equipment tiers. Upgrading from one tier to another increases the stats of soldiers and their equipment. Each tier also has different outfit combinations that can be changed at the fort or cities barracks. Increasing the tier of a garrison will increase their weekly cost, but they will do a better job at defending your fort and look cooler.

Alpha

At the moment, most of the basic mechanics have been created. That is why we are thinking of creating an early alpha version, and releasing it in about a week. This version will only allow you to own one fort, but it will have the features of building and upgrading the fort, managing a garrison, defending from attacks and performing ambush attacks. This alpha version will be a small view into the larger mod, and will still be filled with features for you to enjoy. All we have to do is apply all of our created mechanics to other forts in Skyrim, and the Alpha will be ready. There will probably be one more update this week, showing of the defend and ambush mission, and then we will probably go silent after the alphas release. That is because we will be working on adding all the unique buildings and garrisons to every fort in Skyrim, so we won't have anything new to show of for a while. If we go silent, don't worry the mod isn't dead.

Also, we are going to need voice actors at some point for all the new NPC’s. If you are willing to do free voice acting, contact me via ModDB for more information. The same goes for people who know how to create meshes and textures for Skyrim mods.

There have been a change of plans for the Alpha. We won't be adding in the defend and Ambush missions till later, and instead we are going to be focusing on the unique quests owning each fort will allow you to do. These quests will provide bonus to your faction, such as more resource production and new locations. We are releasing Alpha 0.1 on Wednesday the 24th.

Hi, I noticed the Alpha release seems to have been delayed. How are things going with development?

There was a disagreement within the group about the alpha. Some wanted to wait while others wanted to release it. We decided we wouldn’t release it until we all agreed, and we haven’t so far. We are still working on the project, however it still needs polish and more content before it’s worth releasing.

Ah, that's understandable. Looking forward to seeing what you have when it is in a state to release.
