Friends holding hands images HOL

Greetings, I would appreciate anyone who spots mis-translations and grammatical errors within the Module, if you wish to assist that would be great!

To start it off, first you should write the thing you believe is incorrect or you want to change it to a more accurate term, regardless of how minor it is. Afterwards write the phrase corrected to the best extent of your abilities.

Use this for example:

(Old phrase with issues) -- (New phrase fixed by you)


(If you see tis bug, report to) -- (If you've seen this bug message, please report it to the developers.)

I will proof read each issue and apply it to future patches if its sufficient.

You may also come to Discord to discuss if you wish.

This mod is completely amazeballs. But like others have said, so much untapped potential on top of what it does now. It definitely has the framework to be amazing and offers so many more awesome features than we're even seeing from say.... Bannerlord right now lol.

Can you add some guide because i only know how to do few things in this mod and I don't know how to use all features or access them...Or you could make a wikia for the mod.

It's Confusing for new player, but if the mod author adds a more detailed beginners guide I will give this a 10 since I can't make trade routes
