You are in Glasgow, Scotland, a city divided by age old sectarian hatreds and territorial gang violence. In the last few days the city has entered an even more noticeable downward spiral than usual, with all out warfare breaking out between the various gangs, and unprecedented levels of brutality being shown by the Polis.

The global financial crisis isn't helping matters a virtual army of unemployed workies have united as one to seize the factories and the building sites, effectively shutting the city down.

The State has responded with it's customary tact and intelligence to the demands of the people by filling the city centre with lawless Snatch Squads in blacked out Police vans, and breaking out the firearms from their vaults. But who gives a fuck about any of that shite, eh It'll only be a couple of hours till the pubs open again!...

The future looks bright... if you're drunk.

UPDATE TO THE ORIGINAL MOD

News

This is a post to bring attention to the original Gangs of Glasgow mod and the new file I uploaded for it. You can find it here.

After 5 days and lots of looking at the screen, I present to you the Gangs of Glasgow Community Version. It's mostly a port of The Old Firm assets in a playable fashion, but also includes some new towns, castles, and villages to include the 2 unimplemented factions from the original mod, Glasgow City Council and Ferris Crime Syndicate. I did troops for them and also edited existing troops to include the ported assets. Unfortunately, I did not have it in me to scene the new towns, so I recommend not taking any wee donders aboot Ready Mix Concrete or Commonwealth House. Also, I fixed the two units (SPG Officer and I forget the other one) that had invalid upgrade paths, so now recruiting them and looking at them in your party will not crash your game anymore.

This was my first poke at Mount and Blade modding. I contemplated fixing the WB port or perhaps re-porting in a more comprehensive fashion, but I did not want to learn the module system or how to script. I used mainly Morgh's M&B WB-WFAS Editor to port and edit items, troops, parties, party templates, and factions; OpenBRF was used to view and edit .brfs, and Thorgrim's Map Editor was used to edit the world map. All these GUIs allowed me to do what I wanted to do fairly easily when I learned how to use them correctly and avoid random issues which made me lose quite a bit of progress at points. I hope whoever sees this with a mind towards tweaking or porting things between modules, or even making them, is able to use these tools like I did, flailing around like a total noob until I found a way to make it work.

I've linked this to the 'remastered' port to hopefully get it seen by more people. To reiterate this has NOTHING TO DO with the Warband port; if someone will port the features over it's not going to be me. Testing my changes made me realize how much worse M&B is than WB, but it is what it is. I hope everyone enjoys it nonetheless, and I hope I gave everyone who played the mod years ago a reason to replay it, as well as bring some new interest towards it. Working on the mod was fun and I learned a lot about Scotland's gangland along the way, probably way too much for a random east coast American to know.

the non-warband version works much better FYI whatever method that was used to port this to warband isn't very good evidently

Update: running it on WSE2 got it working. It only crashed sometimes, and I got lots of error messages, but I still had lots of fun!
