Community Tales #4

Greetings warriors of Calradia!

Welcome to the fourth edition of the Community Tales! Before we highlight the new creations and events, we would like to share more on the progress of the v1.2.x version series. Recently, we’ve released Beta v1.2.5 which addressed a plethora of issues, brought improvements to the settlement garrison balance and tweaked the combat AI by introducing a larger fighting skill gap between lower and higher skilled troops.

Furthermore, Dedicated Server files have been made available for Beta, we’ve made a number of balance adjustments based on your feedback and added the ability to favorite servers. Finally, modders can now explore the new and improved moddability of the World Map, the bulk shader compilation (which reduces module loading times) as well as the ability to define and use your own decals.

Finally, as 1.2.5 grew larger than expected, the previous November cross-platform release estimate will likely not be met. Having said that, this month still saw significant progress towards a release in the next few weeks. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and continued support as we strive to deliver a stable and well-rounded patch.

A big thank you to everyone who has provided feedback, reported a bug or uploaded a dump report.

Elite Mercenaries Expanded by TheMerc
This mod introduces new mercenary troops, with historically-inspired appearances and loudouts, with some having uniquely crafted weapons. It allows you to recruit higher tier mercenaries more easily as their troop trees consist of tier 5 and tier 6 units. All the mercenaries can be found only in the towns of their culture.


Random Events by Phill544
Spice up your gameplay with the many different random events this mod provides - anything from various illnesses and getting ambushed by bandits to recruiting eager soldiers and helping the refugees you meet along the way. Many of these events have multiple choices that ultimately shape the kind of adventurer you want to be.
