DETAILS:

As to my knowledge this is only mod or game that gives you ability to use firearms (from flintlock, blunderbus up to AK47) , bows, crosbows, magic wands and staves, laser blasters, side arms (swords, axes, polearms) and even lightsabers in a same, single play. (Let me know if I am wrong).


  1. What is this all about?


Lets imagine everything we know about Roman Empire. As a center of culture, military and administrative organization etc. Lets call it a Roman Empire paradigm.

Now try to recall everything we know about Star Wars. This is knowledge about fictional world, with other than our physics, political situation, etc. It comes from movies, books, comics. Never the less let's call it Star Wars paradigm.

In this game you will experience life with cultures that are created from most different culture, social, political paradigms.

I wonder, there are great "Tolkien" or "Star Wars" mods (for a lot of games, but Mount and Blade is an ideal example). But I have never seen mod that would combine all this worlds into a huge cosmogenic Babel tower.

So this is it. I hope that this mod, which I created to see what would happen if so different worlds would meet, is rather a terrarium with interesting ants, than a tower of biblical chaos.

In my opinion cultures such different are impossible to co-exist in one story only at first glance. Than after some time, you'll see (I hope) what I saw: alittle chaostic, but working mechanism created from very different parts.


PARADIGMS that are in the game:

  • WWII Nazi Germany military forces mixed with medieval chivalry

  • Steampunk mixed with Soviet Russia political hierarchy

  • Japan of samurais mixed with space aliens and Star Wars

  • Orc, uruks, and elves from Tolkien, but living the world in which Sauron won war for the ring

  • Some modern global paranoia mixed with some magic which can have resemblence to times of Prince of Persia or 1001 nights stories.



2. SPECIAL FEATURES:


  • DOOMSDAY CLOCK

One of the most important improvement is DOOMSDAY CLOCK. This mechanic somehow balances game as you become more and more powerful the world is becoming more and more dangerous.

Paradigm worlds are on the verge of autodestruction. There is too much hate, evil, cruelty. This world is becoming hell on Earth. The kingdoms, countries are ruled by tyrans and dictators. This is how empires are falling, and everything with them. This is world in which you fight for struggle. Every dishonorable act: bribery, slave trading, cannibalism brings you closer to chaos and anarchy.

As game-mechanics, DOOMSDAY CLOCK is ticking all the time. Every day is a single click. A click to hell. With every click villain parties become stronger and better trained. Lords have bigger parties and use more advanced units.

Some exceptionally good deeds can click-back DOOMSDAY CLOCK. There is only one way to stop the world from falling apart. To prevent DOOSDAY CLOCK from advancing you have to build temple in every town. So you have to conquer all worlds to take all towns to free the world. What an ironny.


  • PARADIGMS.


    The second most important thing I wanted to do is to create the world when all real and futuristic and fantasy cultures would meet. There are Star-wars, Tolkien fans, fans of cyberpunk and so on. I wanted to create a place where they all could meet. Of course mixing such different worlds can bring chaos and destruction for cohesion of the whole world. It IS strange watching medieval cavalry charge at aliens from outer space. But I think that some kind of balance is possible. Best equipped with modern rifles units don't use any kind of real armor. Beside of tactical shields. Blasters can deadly, but they are slow and inaccurate. And what I cam say: I wanted to imagine who would win, predator or Darth Maul? Nazgul or modern commando? This is place where such an answers can be given. Or better you can take command of each side.


  • TOTAL FREEDOM

Every unit can be taken prisoner, or recruited other way. Every piece of equipment can be found or bought. There is only one expcetion of this rule, modern troopers, they would rather die, than be held captive. You can imprison undeads, recruit pirate hunters, liches, dark lords, alien samurais, sanitarium inquisitors and everybody else.

Every unit (except mercenaries) has its own culture and can become more advanced. Cannibals die and become skeletons which become viking ghost warriors or dark magus. Scavengers become techno slaves, than cybogs and thechno mages. This are few examples of very rich improvment tree.



3. GAME FEATURES:


  • Modmerged with PBOD and FREELANCER MOD. No Diplomacy mod (and there won't be for sure. I intend to keep mostly vannila diplomacy with my own modding.

  • Tons of new weapons, equipment. (1623 – item count for 16.01.2017)

Weapons – you'll find swords, axes, as well as firearms from flintlock rifles to winchesters. You can use magic wands, staffs, modern firearm, or even plasma launchers and energy blasters. There are lightsabers, living and gaining experience artifact, new kinds of thrown weapons like paralizing palantirs or devils' heads.


  • There are some new products to eat or trade. Some of them are needed to craft special weapons or other artifacts.

  • There is a lot of new buildings you can order to build i towns and castles. Castles are now bases for recruitment elite units, towns are rather centers for improving stats, like relations, renown and honour. Also there are building improving ways to earn gold.

  • Building give acces to elite units. Each building give each week more advanced units.

  • Town's architecture examples: courthouse, bank, local theatre, pirate hunter guild, etc.

  • Castle's architecture examples: blacksmith, armory, training grounds, etc.

  • You get special equipment for joining each faction (as a gift from a liege)

  • A few new companions, rest remodelled (but with old dialogs).

  • You can cannibalize (eat) prisoners

  • Slave trading – for trading slaves you lose honor, but earn great amounts of money.

  • A little something on the field of diplomacy: you can send money to kings to improve relations (it can however worsen relation with other kings). This feature is experimental, as I had some problems with coding. If you think, you can help me with that, I will gladly take it.

  • Each faction have two kinds of troops. Regulars can be recruited from villages, but they can advance to certain point. The elite troops can be recruited only after building additional structures like armory, training grounds etc. They are far more powerful than regulars.

  • This makes game more interesting, I think. It changes the pace of the game. It is no longer an easy task to become independent.

  • A lot of new units, from different factions, sub-factions

  • World map is crawling with different parties, so watch your every move

  • Lots of bandit parties: from Scoiataels, to Scavs, undeads, so on.

  • You can start from nothing, or choose A SPECIAL SCENARIO which varies from starting as Alien Pirate, Mercenary Musketeer to a point when you start a game as a leader of small duchy with a few castles and a town.

  • You can recruit classic troop related to culture, or significant more expensive Personal Guard (custom troops with their own advancement tree)) which has a wide range of weapons and armour to choose from. There is special tree for this custom troop, every with different equipment to choose from.

  • You can bribe lords (if you imprison them) to join your faction. (now this option is available only in CHEAT mode. This is because I have found that some strange things are happening. you can bribe lord if 1. you imprison him 2. talk when in cheat mode

  • Some items give bonuses to skills like books. For example Legendary Cyber Visor have +3 to "archery" and tactics skill.

  • New books with bonuses or special features, also primitive, but magic books.

  • Magical artifact (just one for now) which gains experience and levels. With every level it becomes more powerful, deadlier weapon. On the last level it even gains alternate weapon mode.

  • Some weapons have new alternate weapon modes.

  • New animals as mounts : wolves, wargs, camels, elephants, giant spiders.

  • You can choose any faction and some minor factions if you have enough Right to Rule, and special equipment (possible to buy from scribes – special merchant you can meet in taverns).

  • In cheat mode (activated from option menu) you can run Troop Tree from reports menu (quite buggy due to strange troo tree of this mod ie. Diversification to regular, elite troop, personal unit and so on). However it is always better than nothing. You can check most of the regular troops tree.


If you wanna know more about this mod, its factions, mechanics, please see articles section. Thanks.

TROUBLESHOOTING

1. General issues / known bugs

  • for crazy dead body dance - SOLVED: go to options menu and set 'ragdoll' to 0
  • some old 'Calradia' dialogs
  • no difference in gender,anything that is not male is recognised as female. this creates more issues within every dialog line where gender recogniton is used, eg family tree.



2. Small bugs / issues


-skipping start quest is bugged, the assassin is always in the pub now and I get some other bugs like Black Jini asking me if we are read to leave the town(I didn't hire them), no things in shops etc. SOLVED: Skipping quest works fine although you need to go out city for a second, 'leave city' option in the menu to make it work. If you go back to city then it works fine.

- in the faction editor you cannot change core troops of the factions only reinforcements? reinforcements do not change in the villages after changing faction SOLVED(PARTIALLY): wait about 2 weeks in game, current lord's troops would not undergo faction change.

- My game keeps crashing during the tournament at.... TOWN X. UNSOLVED, WAIT FOR FIX: As for tournament please try turn off particle effect in option for a while. I will lower amount of particle effect for tournament weapons.

- encountered is a script error when trying to get reinforcements from order troops UNSOLVED/NOT GAMEBRAKER: It refers to a probably party that connot be found. It is not gamebraking - at worst one of the lords will not get its reincforcements . At best game tries to add troops to a nonexisting party.

It seems that whenever I capture a leader of a faction and select the free him for peace thing, I can't get out of the conversation. Is this a bug? Am I supposed to instead for now choose something else like free him/her for a Special Order thing? Edit: Correction, it does not matter which option I pick for me to receive from the Faction leader, either be a Special Order, Money, or Peace I can't move out of the convo. And I have to restart the game. Any help?

Does the 1.05 patch fixes the troop tree for the fantasy faction ? after taking a look in the editor it seems like the grunts had no upgrade paths which i fixed but i still couldn't get mages,uruks or archers trough villages. (i haven't played all that much and had no castle/town)

Using faction editor you can change your faction troops to star gate and recruit them in the villages. After you build improvements in castles they will spawn there each week with tier troops accordingly to built improvements.
