Save compatible with prior versions or vanilla VC, so you can upgrade your old 8.0 campaigns. A couple changes won't occur because they are set at world generation, but you'll get most changes, and no errors should result.

A question came up on taleworlds about the larger initial garrisons.

Only starting garrisons at world generation for towns and castles are larger. This is to encourage initial stability and prevent factions from being easily steamrolled.

Once those initial solders die in battle, or the castle or town is conquered, garrisons will be much smaller for the rest of the game.

A more complete explanation of this system is here: Forums.taleworlds.com

Figured it out, really simple. I just dragged all the new files into my Viking Conquest folder in Modules/Viking Conquest.

Hi Guest, I can provide painfully detailed install instructions if helpful--probably 95% you will think "of course..."

First step is to make sure you have correctly located your Viking Conquest folder. If you have Steam, it might look something like this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MountBlade Warband\Modules\Viking Conquest

What you want to make sure of is that it is filled with text files called things like "scripts.txt" "mission_templates.txt", nearly 40 little text files in all, as well as a bunch of folders called things like "textures" "sounds" "resources", about 10 folders.

Once you have that open in one window, then download a full-install version of this mod. It will be an archive file, once it is downloaded, open the archive (using a program like winrar), and you will then have a bunch of text files, about 33 I think that show up, again having names like "scripts.txt" "mission_templates.txt".

Select all 33 of those text files, and drag them over into your Viking Conquest folder located in the first step. Since the files have the same names, you will be prompted to overwrite, say Yes to all.

One note: As of 9.0 I enabled constructing buildings in towns you don't own.

Manage all settlements allows you to finance the construction of religious buildings, if you want to try to convert people to your religion. However, if the fief is not already fairly strong in your religion and the angry populace destroys it, it is the player who will take a relations hit with the fief (not the owning lord). The effects of most other buildings you build would largely accrue to the benefit of the fief holder. This is useful if you want to aid your fellow lords or vassals in improving their settlements, as you don’t have to keep the fief until you have built everything you want.

Bear in mind AI lords do not construct buildings in their settlements on their own, so it always has to be the player to do the building.

A new VC update was released today and will be automatically downloaded by Steam. You should just reinstall Balance Mod 9.0 after VC updates for now. You will still get any fixes from the update to scenes and such, and the mod will work fine. I will check the module changes from the update once the source code is released, and provide a new version shortly afterwards, but in the meantime everything will work fine to just reinstall the current Balance Mod 9.0 version.
