Funnily enough VC had an update March 8th. Anyone know if this breaks the mod?

Won't break it -- you just install VC Balance Mod after the update and it should work fine

I was playing this balanced mod but after I reached 489 game days I started to face a lot of glitches like I lost my hair, lost my armour, I can see horses in tavern, all my soldiers lost their armour and equipment. Please help me 😭🤒

That's save corruption, it can happen in any Warband mod. I wrote some advice for avoiding save corruption into the dialogue of an NPC wandering the taverns. But once it has occurred, the only fix is going back to an earlier save.
