Post news RSS 2.0 preview 4: Towns, Mountains and Pigs

The fourth article in a series of previews showing what new and improved content you will be able to experience in A Clash of Kings 2.0.

Posted by on

As previously talked about, 2.0 will see a great amount of lore, locations and facts from The World of Ice and Fire introduced.

One of the great new things is the revelation that there's more cities in Essos than previously known. This should make the continent of Essos a lot more fun to play around on. I've also overhauled the Essos part of the map - more mountains, forests, passes etc.

Mhysa FaerRhyos

All to make Essos more appealing, and less bland. The Essos factions have also received a diplomatic overhaul. Some cities, like Pentos, will not go to war but the Three Daughters (Myr, Tyrosh and Lys) will go to war against each other frequently and without warning.

DraconysAquos Dhaen

I've also emphasized making some features less tedious. The modification is designed to be super frustrating, but only through difficulty, not poor design. So minor annoyances have been tweaked - as an example, you no longer need to travel all over the world looking for Velvet if you want to move your court to a new location.

And as previously discussed, I'm continuing the graphical overhaul with even more props to make the world come alive.

Hey man,

I am really enjoying Clash of Kings but there are just a few things I wish to see in it too.

1)
Family members of House Stark.
I havent fully completed the quests of Night Watch because I got a bug there on my other account, so I do not know if they will be there. But I really would like to see Catelyn Stark comming on a feast, Arya stark, Sansa Stark etcetera. If you could bring them in as real personages, that would be really cool.

2)
If you could, maybe have a look at what every town sells, so that the economics would be a bit more realistic.

3)
Winterfell is a minor castle, but in GoT its the 'Home' of Robb and stuff. If you could, I would prefer it to be a town instead of a castle. Same with the Eyrie.

4)
If it is possible, make stuff a bit more expensive, but let villages and castles produce a little bit more money. For me its pretty impossible to keep my army up of 250 troops when the towns, villages and castles do not even provide enough money to keep the patrolls fed.

Well, I know ur really bussy and already did a great job. But for me it would be great if this could be realised. With a special regard to the House Stark Family. I am really missing them in the game :(

Arya is in the game, you can see her at the remains of Harrentown.

This is just my opinion but 1) and 3) would be way to much lore breaking. To see Sansa at King's Landing would be nice but Arya is at the remains of Harrentown were she should be and Catlyn should be with Robb, but seeing as she did not fight any battles it would be lore breaking to have her in Robb's army so, where to put her in the game?

wouldn't be too far on 3) with winterfell, as winterfell has wintertown which is a market town, i'm sure i've seen catelyn in riverun which is spot on, would be good to have a mission to help sansa escape kings landing etc..

Yes, winterfell has the wintertown, but as the name should make clear, it is only used in winter. In the time the mod is set it is not winter, therefore Cozur has not made it a town.

You are right about Winterfell,İf Winterfell was a town,it would be more realistic and more appealing for traveling in North.But I don't think Eyrie is a town-like place

In accordance to your comment on Winterfell and the Eyrie, they are not towns or cities - they are castles and strong ones at that. Winterfell is not really a town and only in Winter is it heavily populated (the nearby villagers moving to Wintertown to be near the stockpiles of food Winterfell has). In the case of the Eyrie, it can barely hold more than a few hundred people maximum at any given time and can only sustain a very small population due to food demands etc. The towns that are already in the game are canon and there is no need to edit existing castles into towns in the listed cases.

Also maybe a special recruitable unit from crackclaw point since the clawmen are the crownlands' equivalent to the skagosi?

It would be great if you could implement sounds and music from TV series.

Will there be unique troops for the Essos factions once again in 2.0? Not complaining just curious I enjoyed each having its own unique twist instead of all being mercenaries.

Love the mod, and appreciate the hard work.

Its awsome! A couple of things:

1. More epic swords please! and make them really cool, not just shotswords, but bastard, onehanded and twohanded.

2. The lords loyalty system , I mean it's kinda weird to watch a wildling or a Dothraki become a westerosi Lord.

Hey cozur I'm sorry if this question has been answered before but I was wondering in future updates would it be possible to make your own Valyrian sword? I think it would be a really cool addition to the game. Thanks, keep up the good work.

Just wondering if were going to see castle black or any of the other castles and forts mentioned on the wall. i would love it to if the knights watch was actually a faction. i would love to have to join the knights watch or help them by donating prisoners and such to defend the wall.

would also love to see more unique armor weapons and helms especially.

love the work you really are making an amazing game. :)
