recommended stats


Recommended computer stats are at least a quad core cpu, 16 gigs or more ram, 4 gig video card.

will run on lesser systems, but with more lag. had to replace my 3.2 gig dual core 8 gigs ram 2 gig video machine because it was struggling to run this and some of my other mods.

64 bit O.S. required, you will have all kinds of weird things happen with a 32 bit O.S.

I LOVE this mod! So bizzare yet so entertaining. Question, how does one obtain "construction wood" or "construction stone"? Cant build anything in my settlement without them.

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

You have to hire villagers in the settlement as stonecutters or lumberjacks (they may be called by another name) and they will produce wood or stone for construction.

I think "world map" of Empire IV is a biggest minus: it`s so flat and uninspiring no diversity whatsoever. Because of this I have no desire to defend "my land" nor to conquer other lands. My honestly opinion as RP veteran.
At least add some more trees and rivers.

LorDric, this game is fantastic, I am really enjoying it. However, every time I go to a siege battle on a castle, the game crashes. It only crashes during a siege battle and right at the beginning once the screen loads. It does not crash during any other type of event or battle, only when dealing with the castles themselves.

Any idea how to fix this?

several castle scenes are screwed up and will be fixed in the next release

Hello LorDric! Interesting mod so far and im having fun. One problem I run into though is my party never got enough rest in my first play though. So I scrapped that and started a new playthrough. I trained at the explorers guild and became a master camper; however, all I get are critical failures or failure when I try to camp or give master classes. In the skill section says I have 0 XP camping wise. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you! Also want to note that when I'm raiding villages the enemy faction doesn't seem to care. I was with the rhodoks who were at war with swadia. I've raided 4-5 villages and some swadian lords pass by with not a care in the world. Makes me laugh really hard but I don't think they should be doing that.

Also another question; I am trying out that Rigale settlement thing you implemented. I can't figure out where I could get settlers. I read somewhere if you have +2 relation with a village or town you can ask its inhabitants if they want to become settlers and join your settlement; however, no such dialog option is available. Is there a way to get settlers or do you just have to wait in game time? Waited like 2 weeks in game and nobody has come to my settlement.

^- Nevermind about the settlement just read further into this comment section and discovered you answered it already.
