*NOTE: I am updating these when I feel like it. Check back often to see the pics, I've been making small adjustments to each.

 

Ok, so the idea behind this mod is to make each faction unique. Right now, it is focusing on the 5 normal armor sets which are gained through the warfare tech tree. Weapons are also being assigned slightly different numbers. Not necessarily to balance, per se, but to have certain factions use other weapons (instead of, for instance, all factions end up using the war staff, as it has an attack of 15). The highest attack value will still be 15, however, which weapon has the attack value of 15 will vary depending on the faction.

 

Note: This mod hides the core factions, and sovereigns. If you don't want to hide them (for instance you are running a mod which modifies the core factions/sovereigns), you can delete the two files in the core DF folder (DF_HideCoreFactions.xml, and DF_HideCoreSovereigns.xml).

Curious for some feedback here.

Do you think the Sovereigns should start with the unique armor and weapons, or should you have to research through the tree to get them? If so, should they just be in the normal warfare tech tree, or do we dip into other tech trees?

A general rule of thumb for Kingdoms would have armor be Unique and weapons be more generic where the uniqueness in weapons may be the ornamental nature of their scabbards or sheaths, as in a Long Sword is a Long Sword but its holder could be very ornate (which we can't see anyways) but a Suit of Armor was fitted to an single individual and in that respect it auto become unique.

Is there a way to force cross-tree requirements (i.e. need level 5 in civ and level 2 in warfare)? Just curious.

Warning: the AI may never use them regardless. Doh, just messin'!

Well, yes. You can have it require let's say equipment in warfare, and economics in civics (just throwing out example techs)

 

EDIT: Actually I'm not sure. I know you can with techs, but this is equipment, I'll have to test it.

EDIT2: Unfortunately, with items you cannot. Once you research one tech, it will unlock.

Uploaded version 0.51

 

- Changed war staff to war spear (steel spear) for Altar

- Changed war staff to war spear (heavy spear) for Resoln

- Added fallen modeltypes so, if running ACP, you can equip the fallen heros (note: if playing as a kingdom, the armor will probably clip a bit, as the fallen races are larger)

Uploaded version 0.6

 

- Added third tier armor sets for all 10 factions

- Added third tier weapon sets for all 10 factions

- Updated many icons to better fit the armor, however, some still need updating. I'll do a more thorough sweep once all 5 sets are done.

 

To check out what the sets look like, check out the pics from the links in the OP. I've added that faction's most powerful weapon at that tier.

 

* And yes, I cheated. I used a couple of 3dGrunge's models. There simply aren't enough bows in the game. I had to substitute .

Just a note here for a quick update. This mod as it stands, is no longer being worked on. However, it's not going to just die. It has been merged into another mod. I'll be posting the details on it soon, just think this mod on a bigger scale.

All your units are looking great. Can't wait to see the rest of the later tier stuff.
