This is a mod in which every single troop in the player's army has a persistent identity. They have a name, face, equipment load-out and origin information that are generated on recruitment and will persist over time. They also have stats that are updated with each battle. While all troops are unique, they still remain together in stacks in the player's party (so if you have 50 Swadian Knights, this will still show up as one stack, but all 50 will have their own unique name and info). For a full description of the mod features and other information, please visit the homepage.

Hello all,

The source code for this mod is now available under files; but I must warn that it is unfortunately way below the standard I had been hoping for. I promised a LONG time ago to do this and I probably should have just released what I had at that time when the mod was fairly stable, but I told myself I should at least go through and add comments throughout to explain how it all worked. That was how it started. As I went through adding comments, I realised a lot of the code was poorly designed and decided that I should make improvements while I was at it. They were small at first, but quickly snowballed out of control as I ended up overhauling almost the entire mod. That would have been fine if it worked; but the more I changed my code, the more bugs I introduced and eventually I was spending every hour just trying to fix those bugs to no avail, before I lost all motivation and gave up entirely.

I learned a lot of things the hard way during this project, one of which was the importance of version control. When I overhauled everything and ended up with a mod that wasn't in working condition any longer, I realised too late that I probably should have saved what I had before I started that whole process. There are thus 2 versions of the source available in the zip up for donwload; an older version that is more stable and the more recent overhauled code that isn't really in proper working condition. The older code is older than it should be, since I didn't save what I had frequently enough.

So that's my explanation of everything that's happened. What I've put up is something I'm really not proud of; but it was that or never release anything and that really wouldn't be fair to you guys. I hope you can still manage to salvage what's there and get it working in your own mods. Best of luck to all of you and thanks to everybody for being so supportive and immensely patient.

Really cool mod, but is there a way to add more names for the troops to use? because on my last game i ran into at least 3 "Valiants" in my troop. like, where do you store the names for the troops? i would like to add a few dozen more names to the list.

You're supposed to open it with a text editor, not run it. With all due respect, if you don't already know that, you are way way way below the level of knowledge required to have any chance of successfully merging. The instructions are for mod developers, not players who've never touched the module system before.

Going through a bit of a rough time at the moment but I hope to put an update out relatively soon. Lately I've been trying to scale down the complexity of the code and have a much more solid, polished base to work with. Along with that though, I'm working on a troop management UI that's a lot like the native party screen, but letting you deal with the individual troops instead of just stacks. Even if I can't get a full update of the mod released, I'll upload some screenshots of that.

wow bro, i was just looking for something like this, it's like playing in multiplayer haha, awesome idea, the mod just like this is perfect for me. I just love how my troops loot the enemy and take their armor.

I've found a bug around, do anyone know how to solve it? After a while of fighting enemy lords i find in my troops review, a image of my own character, sometimes 2 or more slots that say "NO STRING!", those soldiers appear in battle without any armor or arms and then i lose all what i have in the inventary and the horse i'm using.
