Hi! I really like your mod... I've been playing it quite a lot lately and I've come to an issue so I'm here to report it: When you try to conquer Notrkoping the game gets a CTD without a message and after that it crashes everytime during ANY siege on the save... And I suspect that there might be more towns that cause this, but I haven't come around to find out about any more yet. Also in Rodobyby you can't meet the village elder, because he and his house is stuck under the texture... Is there anything you can do about these issues?

I am having the same problem. Indeed, there are quite a few settlements with this CTD. And because the auto-resolve is so weighted against the attacker, it's impossible for the player to ever take them. I love, love many things about this mod. Unfortunately, not being able to siege is rather game-breaking.

Hey, guys, sorry for the belated reply. Now, I have sieged Nortrkoping with no problem, I've taken some photos, too. Can you make a list of any settlements you encountered that error? Because, if it works in my PC, it means it is sth other than the scenes.

It's a bit weird to have scandinavian troops among the balts, the finns, the saami.. You should rework a bit their troop tree. The chance to invade England, Normandy or even the Slavic tribes of Russia to form the early-viking kingdoms off-sea would be amazing.

Hey, thanks for commenting! Sadly, our researchers are inactive for some time and I am no particularly learned in Dark Age history. If you have any suggestions, shoot.

Yes, Thegn has it right, join the Discord and send me a message there. You can lso post things in the research channel of Discord, no problem.
As for the comment, don't worry. I generally don't delete comments, only if they are rude or inappropiarate to others.

Yeah, I meant that you can delete that comment because it was me but not logged on MODDB and I wrote the same lines I repeated above. Anyway, not important. I'm already in the Discord channel, I'll message you in a few to know what you need the most in terms of research. Thanks!
