Greetings, Defenders.



We will be talking today about some aspects of the community, our upcoming AMA, and much more. I would appreciate if you read this post fully, as there is important information inside. You can follow our ModDB to receive notifications about when we release new updates.

As always, let us know about what you think in the comments below. Please direct your eyes to our Official Steam Group, Screenshot of the Week Contest, Upcoming Community Events, and finally to Ashley's inbox for all your questions, suggestions, or feedback on the mod.


Bridge

Let's start with the hard stuff first - news posts will be coming less frequently. Before there's a riot or you start fearing that the mod is dead, sit back and listen.

We are nearing the stage of development where, honestly, there’s not a lot of interesting things to talk about. We have a few changes to make, a little rebalancing to do, some maps to fix, and a bit of testing toward the end. If there are any topics you would like covered in future news posts please share them in the comments below. We would like to show off what the community wants, not some boring article about troll textures or bed placement.

Bridge 2

We will be doing an exclusive AMA in the next few weeks on the Official Mount & Blade subreddit. An AMA is much like an interview, except people just like yourselves get to ask the questions. You can ask us anything - from our favorite ice cream flavors to what we plan to do once Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord arrives. Registering for Reddit is free and doesn’t even require an email, so make one now so you’re ready for the event. The date will be announced here once it gets closer.

Minimap

We have created a ModDB page and Steam Group for Full Invasion 3 and would appreciate if you would go join/follow them. This will ensure you stay up to date on the mod and do not get left behind. By joining, you can actually influence the mod directly — we are taking suggestions over on our Steam Group.

Full Invasion 3 is an upcoming mod for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord produced and developed by Wave 53 Studios, currently headed by TrotsTwats and Borridian. It will work much like FI2, but hopefully with improved performance and polish thanks to the new engine. We are determined to make it good from the beginning, ensuring that all factions are properly developed and the maps work as intended before release.


Tak

Finally, Metuloak has left Wave 53 Studios to work on his own projects. Some of you may know him from in-game, which is why it is being announced here for total clarity. While he left the team to work on his own projects, he has since abandoned them to the extent of our knowledge. I apologize to the many people who were eagerly awaiting his next impromptu updates or walking on pins to play the movie-accurate maps he was working on.

Life is a circle - with the loss of Metuloak comes the start of something new. Wave 53 Studios is accepting applications for a wide variety of positions on multiple projects. These key positions range from modellers and coders all the way to game development professionals and artists. If you have a talent that would benefit our team, consider applying to Wave 53 Studios and become a part of the most prestigious groups in the Mount & Blade community. You can apply to Wave 53 Studios using the information found on our Steam Group.

The maps Castle Black and Mines of Moria will be separate from Full Invasion and will be made available to various GOT/LOTR mods as well as Full Invasion. I'll be going on an extended leave and depending on how long it will be determines when the maps get released. So for anyone interested in progress pictures and updates on it just check my moddb page for blog posts.

For all the players sick of siege of hornburg I can only leave this: Youtu.be

I hope to return to finishing these maps so the community can enjoy them as I much as I had making them. I wish Wave 53 the best of luck with FI2 and FI3. To the fans who play this mod, if it wasn't for you guys this mod would not be what it is today so thank you for all the support and feedback to the mod and its dev team. Cheers ;)

Hey man guys thank you for the Full Invasion mod great jobs guys :)

I love playing as the Imperial Guard then upgrading to Space Marine (Great model and textures but add more weapons for the Space marine, fix the clunky movements and animations and textures for the space marine of course !)

Also I love the the 300 Spartans great stuff but the capes and moving the legs and cape get stuck but other than that great stuff. True to make the textures better for the whole game mod. Thank you it does the 300 Spartans injustice as a 300 fan boy hehe :)

Also the final and most important thing please please add this in the 300 Rise Of An Empire Athenians :) Commanders with blue capes and that sharpedged helmet, and different hoplites in the movie like at the end skull faced painted hoplites, hoplites with brown strapes on their arms and neck, and hoplites without. Please add this in I love the Athenians from 300 Rise Of An Empire it would so cool and make them high quality models and textures.

And the final thing please make instant respawn for Full Invasion 2 and 3 and beyond another important thing for me.

And most of all thank for this mod ! It allows me to fulfil my dream of playing a cool 300 spartan in a game, a good game ! Thank you

Hello Guest,

We'd love to have higher resolution textures just as you, but unfortunately, having higher resolution textures means bigger downloads and a more demanding mod. FI2 is already pushing the limits of what Warband can do, so if we demand it to load higher resolutions, more PCs would be unable to handle the mod, which is really not what we want.

Instant respawning is not an option for Full Invasion 2, and it won't be an option in FI3 either. If everyone would be able to spawn immediately upon death, where would the challenge be? Bots would never be quick enough to kill all the players, so we'd be unable to lose, which is not what we want.

As for new factions or troops, that's something we'll look into after we finish the current update (Amber). Right now we're focusing on rebalancing and fixing what we already have, instead of adding more.

I hope that covers it all,
Maroon

I would not love higher resolution textures at all, and I think a lot of people would say the same. I'm with you completely that FI2 is demanding, but it is just balanced enough so that I can okay it on my ****** laptop and I hope it stays that way.

I would suggest if people with their NASA PC's don't like the low textures go play Kingdom Come: Defiance or Chivalry. This will forever be a Mod for the low Enders.

There are a few issues with your request. From what I've read from the Devs, a high resolution version will not be possible since FI2 is already running at the extreme limits that Warband can provide. But also, many players, many loyal players who have had this from day one and run it on Laptops (surprisingly well) will miss out. Which is unfair if you ask me.

With instant respawn, that is an obvious no no for many reasons. If you had all the players instantaneously respawning upon death then it wouldn't be a challenge. You wouldn't feel vulnerable when fighting and therefore the Mod would just die. The whole concept of the Mod is to make people work together to achieve victory. If you don't then your most likely going to end up dead hovering around someone else's character as a spectator.
