the good news is i'm still working not like what some are thinking its not dead not when i'm here i really don't care when bannerlord will come out cuz i'll not stop working on this mod as well (maybe making one for banner lord as well if this one got good feedback who knows!!)
so as u all know this mod have about 30 factions but as i was studying japan history (i studied this more then my studies in university lol) i think it will be more then that i know huge work but i have a lot of time (means i won't stop !) maybe 40 with some minor clans still not sure but i'm sure it will have more then 30clans that's for sure!
another thing i wanted to ask i was like between 50% to 50% and i really would love to have a good feedback about these this mod is trying (well i'm trying my best) to be historical and realistic as possible so i was having some ideas(not sure if that's the correct word to describe but aww....) i wanted to have at least some of these features :
- perma death and injuries : like i don't want the hero to be a super hero who can't die lol so yeah you can die (u have a chance to both die or survive) so each and every battle will count even against looters for example (or weaker enemies) in reality it was like this or at least close to this ..so please tell me what you think about this
- sea travel (unlimited = free) and sea battles : i sometimes liked to play as a pirate used to recruit them (after saving them in gekokujo mod wich is a great mod i'll put a link for it for anyone who want to check it out) and be a pirate but the problem was i can't be in sea a pirate in land only so yeah i wish to know what you think about this raiding ships sometimes raiding villages (of course you will get a chance to have a nice base to operate from it)
- buildable castles : i really wanted to have this with costume japanese scenes building a castle from scratch wooden to stone walls and from maybe a small house headquarter to a castle who knows so i wanna know your opinion since a lot of castles were build in japan in that era
- one hit kill : this might be annoying i know but in battle (and remember this mod is trying to be realistic) u would fall after being hit once or twice with an arrow or with a sword i know the armors would help a little but this would make formations and tactics more important and the life of a daimyo( u or other clans daimyos) and generals (again u or your vessels or companions) important and need to be defended so battles are more important now whether you have the numbers or not (just see how oda nobunaga ended the imagawa's attack and made a name of him self in that era with tactics regardless of being outnumbered he killed the enemy "daimyo" and won )
- no hero shit (i know it will give more problems and more work to do lol but who cares as long as it turn to be good) so yeah no hero shit anymore no lord being a hero or a daimyo or companion all are normal heroes like soldiers they can die they can be garrisoned to protect a place
- no castles ( now i know this is weird how are we gonna play if there is no castles only towns ) yep i found out lately that castles had people living outside of it not only in side it had markets (not all of them but most of them) they were like a mini version of a town but made for battles and stuff (now i know "WTF is he saying here)but what if you can get any castle and still be able to trade with it buying food from the locals and weapons and armors from the guys making them there but for towns they are gonna be more hard to take bigger then castles walls protecting both the inside and some of the outside so you need to take down many walls to get to the center and fight many troops as well
- now now the part that i would love to see (i know some will hate it) huge armies so battles can be enjoyed with death possibilities you can for example throw a general or some troops to hold down the enemies for you so you and you daimyo or some other generals can escape without being killed (and there is a great honor in doing so and falling in battle ) you can do it as well while ordering them to run but be careful not to die or forget to run when out numbered so more men defending places more mens to fight so you can expect an army of 20000 imagawa men attacking you or oda or any clan you are serving (or your own as well)
- special places : for example temples and stuff would you love to see that
- now to one of the most important question Hokkaido island : do you want it to stay empty (only one town and one castle)and historical accurate for the time this mod is set in or do you want it to more lively with maybe adding the Ezo tribes as well as some other tribes fictional or real don't care as factions while giving them some castles and towns (so only that part of the map will be non-historical accurate)and well ....more lively so if someone want to fight in that uncivilized part of japan be my guest but be aware that if i added this you will have hard time surviving there)
these are stuff i'm gonna do for sure now or later :
- diplomacy : will be improved i hope : so marriage alliances can be forged and much more (it will take time but again .... XD)
- weapons : are more simplified no many katanas only few better once for high tier troops or nobles
- armors each lord (hopefully i can do that to more then 200 vessel lol) will have costume armors and stuff daimyo will have everything costume date will have his own known helmet and so on the players will also have some stuff left for him to chose from
- economy will be improved
- animations : fighting will be more improved then native
- war cries and stuff like that ; you will hear your self giving orders (i'm working on getting permission to use japanese voices now so i won't get my ass kicked later lol if i can't get some well i'll have to try making some with my shitty voice and shitty mic lol so you can enjoy it for sure)
and many more for later!!
now there will be an option two def files one with realism options and features for guys who want it and another version without those only minor stuff for guys who don't want them (but will take the fun out)
now tell me what you think of the above !! and just a bonus :
- more then 60+ town and 200+ castles and so far 450+ villages some are not historical accurate just added for game balancing so expect the map to be chaotic (its the Sengoku jidai what did you expect lol)
- some improved scenes
- more then 300 items so far others are work in progress (working a lone takes time but is fun enjoying using blender!!)
- many japanese models (the biggest one is Kyoto castle which will have hopefully after being finished more then 6 floors so fighting to the top will be hard while getting rained with arrows from each floor others will be done as well so more variety more fun
- costume scenes and places like temples and stuff
- more then 150 vessels were done and others are in progress
- hopefully i just started creating backgrounds for companions so when i'm done with lords i'll start working on new ones from scratch
- hopefully in the future i'll be able to add a storyline campaign to the single player i have a great story i've written before and i got nice feedback on it from the people i showed they said it was good (damn that made me happy ToT)
now i'll not post a thing for a while since i'll try to focus on working (i'm taking my time to make something better since i don't wanna rush it and give you a shitty thing to play then i feel sad that you didn't like it and have a quite rage lol)i'll only check for the next few days or maybe a week or so to see the feedback then i'm out for until i have something to share cya!!and again thanks to all who helped me spc gekokujo mod maker go check his amazing mod here :
and the maker of gekokujo sub mod Sugoroku check it here as well :
and all who i forgot to mention !!
Now before i say goodbye again i know there are writing mistakes and i'm pretty sure i forgot something but i'm super lazy and tired to correct them and i wrote this while being super tired now bye-bye!!
