Wow! I think Silverstag mod is my perfect mod for Warband

#1TowerBooks3192Posted 7/13/2014 11:59:11 AM
I just found out about silverstag browsing Nexus and it turns out that it should have been how vanilla warband should have been. It improves a lot of things to the vanilla experience, improves the graphics, has things like companion management, assigning new perks. The best part of the mod is when you fall down in battle, you get to control one of your soldiers. I got careless and got swarmed by bandits but then it let me control my Swadian Militia and finished the battle. Would highly recommend if you want an improved vanilla warband experience.

Go here to find what mods there are:

I'm still playing Prophecy of Pendor, it's ****ing incredible.

Version 4.0 is coming out, too. So I'll probably do another run of it before going onto my next mod. I can see myself playing PoP for another year, in fact.

I've already played Diplomacy, Floris, Light & Darkness and Brytenwalda to death.

Should I skip the vanilla experience and just jump into modding or is it better to learn the basics first?

It's better to learn the nature of the base game first, imo. But many people recommend adding the Diplomacy mod because it feels like it should have been included in the game, to begin with.

But I would at least play base game + Diplomacy before jumping into something like Prophecy of Pendor, which is for veterans only.

Yeah Silverstag is basically the new Floris, which was considered one of the best Native mods for Warband.

And as Ningi said, I would learn the base game first. Once you get an idea of how to fight and lead and maintain an army, the rest becomes stuff better done by mods.

I prefer Floris. Starting right out with mods are fine, since they basically have the same basic premise and gameplay mechanics. Floris is based on vanilla/native Warband.

Some notable mods:

Gekokujo
Anno Domini 1257
Bryntelnada (spelling?)
Floris
Prophecy of Pendor

The "basic premise and game-play" is the same in all mods, does that mean he should dive headlong into PoP? No.

And I wouldn't recommend a newbie go straight into Floris, the early encounters with bandits are much much harder than the base game. It might put him off, it isn't fun trying to learn the combat system and you're dieing left and right.

Eh, I started with Floris after maybe an hour playing unmodded. It's best to start at Swadia or Rhodok. Definitely don't start with the Nords as the sea raiders will obliterate anyone.

Starting with the Nords is the best because you'll come out of it stronger for it.

Sea Raiders aren't too bad, it's the goddamn Steppe Bandits and Desert Bandits that are utter hell.
