BannerPage Update 1.201

More than 300 individual feedbacks received from you guys helped a lot. Thank you.

Watch episode 5 of the iron-man challenge, Adentures of the Ironam Beartilde,

on the greatest Warband Youtube channel - ReformistTM, playing this update



PERFORMANCE/ GRAPHICS - Large random scene improvement:

Graphics:

Problem: some Swadian plains had too much small collidable bushes/trees and some forests were very dense.

  • Major FLORA TWEAK - re-calibrated plants distribution:
  • Removed few collision objects from two small bushes, one pine bush model reduced in volume
  • Dynamic load optimization - Scenes now look AMAZING !!! (100% grass density, 100% Tree degrade distance, high Anti-aliasing, HDR and Auto-Exposure both off)

IMPORTANT!: You need to enter random scene at least dozen times that new flora results really kick in and start to show up their greatness, don't ask me why - Warband engine

  • Textures load on demand automatically now

Everything done properly should net you results like this - Swadian forest.


This is Swadian plain (field), please note that rider is not colliding with bushes.



Tournaments Overhaul :

Based on the very large player's feedback: They loved challenge, new design, factionized equipment, weapon load-outs matching arena layouts, basically everything, but they still considered often too hard, so here is overhaul, that should cover most of the needs:

  1. slightly weaker normal opponents and their AI
  2. slightly stronger lords and their AI
  3. player has more HP
  4. companions are stronger and have better AI
  5. shield bash returned to tourney
  6. tuned bets betting system to match new more favorable conditions
  7. removed bows and arrows from all Nord tournaments (throwing axes and spears instead -NSC*)
  8. redesigned camp and arena tournament menus



New features:

  • Get renown for killing a Hart (male deer with large horns- antlers)
  • Equip Player Kingdom Lord via dialogue menu
  • When Lord Rolf will now always recruit Sarranid troops (they were the only Faction that didn't have one)

PLAYER EXPERIENCE BALANCED

BannerPage religiously protects Native Campaign Balance and that was never and will never be touched. Player experience is a different thing huge amount options has been given to player to enjoy.

Taking into account that BannerPage will be a challenge for many and that new features like complex recruitment system, harder Tournaments maybe an obstacle for some we have left many backdoor open to help masses to overcome those aforementioned issues, as many of you found. Such as no prisoner limit on Salt Mine, Recruiters in taverns recruiting everyone at the base price, treasure chest items appearing in all shops and toys like grenades and explosive arrows.

MOD PLAYER EXPERIENCE BALANCE tweak

  • Tavern recruiters - cost is now 3xnormal price, elites can't be purchased no more
  • Salt Mine has a Cap now.
  • 80 Treasure Chests items can still be found shops but extremely rare
  • Naft arrow cannot be picked of the ground

  • Greek grenade requires throwing 3

Is is, meaning you definitely won't crush.

Some things that are initialized at the beginning of the each game so those might not be available, such for an example as nord default tournament settings.

Thanks

This is the best mod ever made, but there is still a one big bug - traders are staying stuck on the sea unable to reach the town

I still have moneylenders adding positive or negative assets at random.

I downloaded the mod, installed it, downlaoded the patch, applied it, started a new game. My warband version is 1.174
