Donny HANDS will be pleased with this one: "You should now lose less men in any events whilst sieging."

Nothing more infuriating than having 40 unsullied die to an event like that as well as other 60 man to put some incredibly underwelming defenses against archers. :p

Does this also fix the Suicidal Dothraki? Who goes into River with Horses and only Horses come out.

Lol, i did not know that was a thing :o

Yeah, he built mantlets, when they went to place 2 of them, and boom, almost 100 man dead just to place them. Worst is, it doesn't seem to take into consideration the skill of the troops, so it just randomly killed a whole lot of unsullied.

Small bug found: if you leave a faction and join another you're locked to the 1rst faction vendor.

The vendor does not change according to your faction, else you could just faction hop and acquire everything.

I get error messages on the loading screen saying: 'get_object failed for texture: waterbump_0', 'hlsl_data_handles[9]' and 'hlsl_data_handles[45] not working', because of which game doesn't work. Would appreciate any kind of help! (WHAT I DID: Extracted the mod from downloaded .zip folder to the M&B/Modules folder (which already contained 'Native'). I've M&B: Warband ver1.1)

It takes a while to load, are you sure it is actually frozen? Do you get any errors?

why don't you put the "find a new item" command in the cheatmenu? that will help me a lot to make my characters look exactly the same as they are in the movie and that will make your game to have more cinematic shots. And in the game are a lot of cool swords and valyrian weapons and armors that i personally can't find them as example the sword blackfyre... the sword should come with daenarys but the only sword that she haves is darksister and i cannot find blackfyre anywhere..

Hi. I hope it arrives to the right networks. Can you arrange so that Sansa Stark becomes a claimant as well. After Rob dies? There is no stark claimant. Or else make Jon Snow.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Are there any new uodates coming up? While asking for this I would like to thank you and a big well done for all the work you are doing.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Sup dude great mod playing several times, but there is an option way to decrease the number of troops all overall in the game, in late game some lords have close to 300 units so defending on sieges sometimes take to long and overwhelming vs more than 2000 units, also i was playing with the riverlandings and they take to many arches to battle first and get killed by enemy cavalry.

Does anyone have information on the new companions' personalities/nobility/who they like&dislike;? They've been added for 6 months but no one seems to have posted a thing about them, even the wiki is still outdated. Huge thank you to any one who can fill me in!
