            I keep hearing this. Could you explain why? I know it’s too outdated for the current version of the game so I wouldn’t use it anyway.

              Not him but the new troop trees are gay and cluttered, the new tournament system sucks ass, and shit like enrolling in an army is pointless. I think it’s still worth for the new town management options.

              I mean it depends on what version you’re using, but you get everything worth keeping just by playing Diplomacy anyway if what you want is Native improved. But potential features include units with stupidly bloated stats, extremely anachronistic and often ugly equipment that clashes with native, ugly ‘gritty’ graphics, QoL "improvements" like reducing the cultural uniqueness of different towns’ tournaments and letting you bring your same kit everywhere. People can play what they want but would I never recommend Floris to a first time player.

              the mod itself is just a bloated collection of mods that the author just stuck together with no afterthought (the expanded and reworked troop trees are the worst offenders), the problem I have personally is the undeserved praise it gets, being considered the go-to mod by many when there are much better QoL mods out there

                same shit as Pendor really, they are the worst mod in their respective category but for some reason people love them, my guess is they don’t know any better or as normies do just get in on whatever is the most popular without actually making an opinion of their own about it

                  I like Pendor simply for the reason that it lets you be stupidly overpowered in the late game, but yeah I wouldn’t call it the best mod warband has to offer even though it is often cited as such.

                    i mean if you know how to play you end up being overpowered late game in one way or another, its easier in some mods harder in others but in pendor specifically its gated between a shitton of grinding and arbitrary timers

              its bloat for the sake of bloat, the troop trees are all over the place, filled with irrelevant and completely useless units while some are clearly superior to everything else, the new features are pointless and only contribute to the bloat and it doesn’t feel like vanilla at all

        I always thought it was overrated. The combat is clunky as fuck and none of you remember that the game was supposed to have a lot more features before the devs gave up and released this shit unfinished. Mount And Blade was one of the very first examples of what would later become early access games that are left incomplete because the devs ran with the money.

              best army in the game, just shield wall and slowly advance, or just shield wall and sit still while the horses literally run full speed into a wall. Sieges in either direction are a complete joke, maybe the very first Huskarl up the ladder dies, and then the genocide starts

          The real play is to not engage in field-combat and just siege until you own everything. When horse-troops try to siege most of them are fucking useless and about 10 huskarls with some range backup can take 40x their numbers. Eventually you have enough lords to deal with the field combat, and every time you win a siege you lock up a lord forever and never release them. Then you just snowball into a fuckpile of death.

            If you’re looking for something less vanilla then Dickplomacy isn’t the way to go. Phantasy Calradia, Blood and Steel and Warsword Conquest all add new elements to the gameplay (namely magic). If that is still too familiar you might want to try Paradigm Worlds.

        AD1257 is great if you want to play on medieval europe, all fantasy mods are quite unbalanced and difficult to go throught if you don’t have any previous experience with the game, Pendor is shit and is only carried by its braindead fans, the only good thing about that mod is that it’s very well optimized, perisno is a better alternative for fantasy but suffers from the same problems but to a lesser degree, Warsword conquest is just a bunch of shit thrown together into a warhammer mod, its super unbalanced and some of the features it has go from completely useless to rage inducing, the best mod of all still is Paradigm Worlds by far

        I support the anons suggesting 1257 AD and add 457 AD for a fall of the Roman empire version of that. Also Gekokujo if you’re a weeb.

        As far as fantasy goes The Last Days is pretty good if you’re into LotR, and Warsword is supposed to be good to but I’m not into Warhammer shit. I think that ones has skeletons in it, but I don’t know if you can be a necromancer.

            Yeah, it’s very well made and still being updated too. Probably the best Roman mod around, I wish we had one on that quality level set in late Republic/early Empire times. Feels good to know people haven’t abandoned Warband for Bannerlord yet.

        you’d think they of all people would know that 5% of features but looks slightly better is a stupid way to sequel but evidently they do not
        bloodlines 2 is going to have the same problem, btw.

        An actually good game that doesn’t depend on a shitload of mods to approximate fun. It’ll blow your mind!

              The problem is that there aren’t too many games like you said, maybe Skyrim and Oblivion with a shit ton of mods.
              And then there’s older Assassin’s Creed games and to be more precise, the original one which is set in middle ages.
              There are mods like Pendor, Phantasy, ACOK, and The Last Days for Warband that overhaul the game.

                  I thought you wanted medieval-esque role playings.
                  Have you ever played Knights of the Old Republic?

                    nope, i mean im more onto those sandbox kinda games or those where you have various attributes and skills and you can raise them and stuff, stuff that was lacking on games post fallout 3 and oblivion

                      Knights of the Old Republic series is one of the best (imo) in this case. It not "sandbox" but it gives rather large locations to explore.
                      Alpha Protocol is similar though it’s not really open world and lacks that sort of exploration.

        You do that in order to ready your attack from the desired direction, then release the mouse to strike. You can also then follow your swing with your mouse to get more damage, as if you were putting your weight into the attack with a full body motion.

      I’m not familiar with realistic medieval combat. If 2 cavalry units mushed together, what would it look like? I imagine the horses would be spazzing the fuck out and knocking off their riders for one thing. How could that be implemented in a game?

      I wish there were more games like kenshi, M&B, and DF where there is no "goal" you just fuck around forever. Sims exists but that feels less like a game and more like well a simulation of course.

      Can low level enemies (aka not lords) escape from your dungeon? I had 80 prisoners waiting to be ransomed and 60 of them just disappeared over night. It was in gekokujo so I’m wondering if it’s a bug or if it is intended.

        a portion of your prisioners will die each few weeks in game until they are all gone if they are inside a garrison, the whole process is very slow so its usually not a problem but you should look for a ransom broker or recruit them to your party as soon as you can anyways since you also lose them if your kingdom makes peace with whatever faction those units are from
