Calradia 1050 A.D.: Mercenary Uprising is a single-player mod for Mount & Blade Warband 1.158 and higher. The main gameplay features of this mod include Diplomacy 4.2, PBOD .92, and Freelancer 1.51, with several fixes for Freelancer bugs. *** The mod also includes several popular OSP kits and codes, including bridge battles, tavern animations, banking, outposts, recruitment from castles, and the salt mine. *** Various OSP arms and armors have been added to make each of the original factions' troops more distinctive and more varied. Lower-tier troops are armored with light cloth armors, middle-tier troops have thicker cloth or leather armors, and top-tier troops have metal armors. *** The troops trees have been re-done to add skirmisher lines to each faction and to add mounted skirmishers to the Nords, Rhodoks, Sarranids, and Eastern Province. Two new factions have been added.
Now that I've gotten to fully experience what this mod was like, I feel like I can give a full review of it.
This mod is very solid, if easier because of the salt mines and land system. The new quests are quite fun, and a challenge if you aren't prepared for it. The new troop system works simply and great, now you can't have the best army in all of calradia because you got buddy-buddy with a few villages. You have to go from castle to castle and recruit professional soldiers from there. The new bandits can be a bitch to deal with at the start of game but once you get a small group going (maybe like ten to twenty trained troops and a companion) you can easily take on most bandits. I would still like to see the 1258 AD continuation system added in though. The new companions are a welcomed introduction, if you want a properly geared companion straight off of the bat but for a much higher price and upkeep. Also the noble equites put a nice balance because while they're very good cavalry units, they can be expensive to maintain and are rare. The new factions are also a welcome addition as well but I do feel like the Kelton could be a bit more original. When I fight them just about every troop except for like one or two are non-cavalry. Maybe add in a cavalry unit or two in the tree? The Khergiz tribe is also a bit guilty from this but they're an exception because its supposed to be the original Khanate.
All in all, I would say that this mod is pretty nice if you're just looking for a Vanilla+ mod that adds lots of content to play with, but doesnt completely change how you play. Very nice 9/10
love the this mod and how every faction has similar units and how it aims to be more within the dark ages instead of the middle ages
Good idea for the mod, i see where you're aiming to. I'm liking it so far, and i'm eager to see what the future will bring.
Mod is good, very well balanced and simple, with is good in my opinion, also it have a Byzantine like faction in it with is amazing.I've been following this mod on TW forum since the beginning and I know that Redleg is working real hard on this.
un mod que promete y sospecho cumplirá.
I've already posted my "review" in the comments. TL;DR version - an awesome mod, not too far off Native, not too vanilla. I like to call these mods "Goldilocks mods". A couple of bugs, but it's understandable, as this is after all a mod. 10/10
Dont know why but its managed to entertain me for almost a year now. I dont know what is it. It is just fun to play. I fell in love with it to fast.
This is a wonderful mod, very simple to pick up and play, but with a lot of depth to it.
The new factions are well balanced, and breath new life into Calradian politics, and the relocation of the Khergits to the far eastern side of the map feels very natural with the time period change.
The new recruitment system works very well, and the mercenary tree rework along with the new troop additions really fleshes out the options available to a wandering not-yet-famous leader of men.
The OSP additions work cleanly and well together, and really bring a lot of quality of life features that make the mod both deep and enjoyable.
The range of OSP items added are well balanced, and seem to be hand selected with an eye to both honor the time period of the faction inspirations and to increase the aesthetics of the battlefield.
Overall, this is a 10/10 mod for me, and I look forward to seeing what Redleg brings out in the future.
well balanced, nice textures, more kingdoms. Overall great mod.
Why I love this mod:
1. 2 new factions
2. troop changes and variety
3. Tons of armor and weapon items
4. variety of other mods merged with it
Bottom line, this mod is a must-have for anyone wanting a fresh new experience in the world of Calradia.
