Hotfix 1 reloaded
Fixes companion dialogue issue
Fixes cyrus ward save issue
Somewhat fixes lord bandit quest issue (it often works but sometimes it fails like before so I recommend saving before asking a lord for a quest until I have figured out the last variable)
Vampire starts with items
Fixed some broken scenes and arenas (but not all arenas, I recommend keeping cheats on so you can auto kill tournament combatents who spawn in dodgy locations)
Fixed village elder bug
Many small troop stat and equipment fixes
Wood elf walker fixed
I have made these fixes but I have not been able to test them due to being away with only my laptop. Hopefully they work as intended:
Mounts do not get the same combat skill bonus as their rider
You now get relation penalty for attacking kingdom patrols
Defections no longer occur
Gsanders/Phosphor has also been at full throttle making changes:
Wages reduced slightly for mercenaries
Slightly higher average pay for prisoners when selling at barkeep
Slight increase in maximum party size calculation
Increased garrison and lord party size
Increased party prisoner limit slightly
Compassionate lords do not attack farmers or raid villages
Auto-calc bonus for high level troops
Auto-calc kills fewer high level troops
Slightly improved rewards for quests
Slightly adjusted space at normal town merchants
Companions slightly add to party morale as more companions are hired
Lowered the cost of village improvements
Slightly increased number of items for sale in town
You can no longer recruit troops for free
Smoother curve for buying and selling in bulk, which really adds up quickly
Romancing female lords, vassals, and female players marrying male lords now as in Diplomacy* (untested)
The ability to zoom in and out after toggling camera mode with the End key is restored*
mini map is removed. It still exists as a part of the backspace view orders mode, but otherwise is removed.
This hotfix is not game save compatible.
There will be another hotfix in a few days (earliest weekend) but we cannot guarantee that it will be game save compatible. Please bear this in mind if you would rather not keep restarting your game it may be worth waiting and seeing. The next hotfix will include all these fixes as well if you would rather wait.
All other issues will be addressed in later patches
Warsword Conquest (1.168 required)
Greetings Warsword Fans
We are happy to be able to release the next update of warsword conquest. Much has changed from the last version and we hope you enjoy the changes and keep an eye out for updates about the next update which we hope to get out later in the year.
First of all I would like to thank Del for creating the mod and all he has done to get it to where it is today. He has had to stand down as mod leader due to a lack of time but he still plans to be around when he can and he saved the day during these final weeks by fixing a lot of the modelling issues. Without his help we would have had to cut a considerable percentage of the new models but thankfully his know how has meant that every new model we wanted in has made it to release.
Many thanks to gsanders (phospor1) for his innovative ideas and attention to detail which has added a lot to warsword and has opened new avenues which we will continue to explore. He has also done wonders to help streamline the mod and make it run as easily on systems as it can.
Massive thanks goes to Jargon Darot for the countless new scenes which have been added to the mod which have really made the mod come alive and added a great touch of authenticity and uniqueness to the factions. Thanks also to Captain Melon who has also made excellent contributions to the new scenery.
A big thanks to Dankmar (orcs, goblins, lizardmen, vampire counts) and Articcactus (Wood Elves) who have contributed to this update as freelance modellers and have allowed us to refresh many more factions than we initially intended and have also allowed us to fill most of the map with new factions. Their contribution to this update has made a massive difference at a critical time.
Also a big thank you to Polloio for being ever present on both modddb and taleworlds doing invaluable work communicating with our players and those interested in development. He also included some great new character creation options as well.
Thank you to all of those whose work has helped contribute to warsword over the years and you can see all of these in the credits.
Finally thank you to the community for following and supporting the mod. Thank you for your patience during the difficult times and kind words and encouragement along the way.
Warsword Conquest is a total conversion of warbands mount and blade 1.168 based on the warhammer fantasy world by Games workshop.
You can see a greater detail of the new changes for this release in the articles on the modddb website or in the changelog file in the mod root.
There are some known issues which we are releasing the mod with such as faction leaders having the wrong banners, skill reporting being bugged and that script error still happening (albeit less frequently). We plan to tackle those things in a subsequent patch but we are not going to let these things delay the release plan.
The main features of the mod are as follows. 18 factions to join or fight these are :-
Empire, Lizardmen, Tomb Kings, Badlands Goblins, Pirates, Orc, Dwarfs, Bretonnia, Chaos,
