Gekokujo is a mod for Mount and Blade Warband set in the Sengoku period of Japan. The name is a term often translated as "the low-ranked taking over from the high" and was chosen because it was a running theme during that era: Oda Nobunaga descended from a clan of deputies to the nominal governor of their province, but the Oda usurped them and toppled their neighbors; Toyotomi Hideyoshi began his career as a cook and sandal bearer and ended up the ruler of Japan; Tokugawa Ieyasu was an upstart who probably fabricated a claim of descent from the Minamoto clan--the only ones allowed to be granted the title of Shogun. As a player of Gekokujo, you will start from nothing and attempt to gain control of the entire country, making the title fitting.
A simple morgh's editing that changes Ashigaru Spear and Skirmisher so they use more half cuirass and generally look a bit more different than samurai
I have created a simple submod tweaks for Gekokujo 3.1 Sugoroku, it's a simple morgh's editing that changes Ashigaru Spear and Skirmisher so they use more half cuirass and generally look a bit more different than samurai (Elite Spears now no longer has 100% chance of having a Zunari style helmet, and Veteran Spearmen will still use Jingasa)
Another thing is I tweaked (or maybe fixed) Ashigaru Skirmishers as they have a somewhat weird proficiencies, for example Chosokabe Skirmisher spawns with more bow, and they have 120 at archery but only 60 at firearms. While Oda Skirmishers spawns with more Guns, but they have 120 firearms and 60 at archery. Which means when an Oda skirmisher spawns with a bow, he is pretty useless.
Also, I have added several armors by combining meshes from Jacobhinds Armour Improvement with Sugoroku (they are used by peasants, Samurai are not touched)
Make sure you have the correct version! It's Gekokujo 3.1 with Sugoroku submod!
Detailed Instructions goes like this: Install Gekokujo 3.0 -> Patch it with Gekokujo 3.1 -> Patch again with Sugoroku -> Install this mod by dragging it into the game folder and click yes to overwrite it. Not save-game compatible. Also, BACKUP is important!
Please report any errors, and remember to make back up! So if you don't like the changes I made, you can reverse it.
Later on, I think I'm going to create new troops for each faction Shogun 2 Style, like Mori having their own Wako Pirates branch from Spearmen, etc etc. But I desperately need help for ideas on Minor Clans (Satake, Amako, Nanbu, Ryuzoji, that kind of Clan) obviously this will disrupt the great balance that phlpp has bestowed upon Gekokujo, so it may be not for everyone.
Many thanks to
