Is all the content is done and you are in fine tuning or the end game is yet to be done?

Non scripted revolts and raids are working fine, as well as Decisions.
Timeline Events are work in progress and leader DB too ( I keep adding leaders for factions, they have a very significant impact on gameplay.

Raiders AI is good but need a fine tuning.
Revolt and Minor factions AI is doing a good job but there is room for improvements.

I need to test massively combats to adjust models DB and settings.

The Age wiki website has stopped working, even with view sources workaround, so it is sometimes harder to find the right tool to make features working as intended.

and of course sometimes I stop modding for a few days to pilot my Argon warship. :niark:

September 772

Tue Dec 18, 2018 2:20 am

September is the last month for Bann and HeerBann units availability.
These units will be removed in October, as warfare season will be over.

I am not convinced that Minden worth to be held. Carolingians stacks do not manage to have Widukind retreat from the region and supply level will not allow to keep a large force in it.

This turn victory is not good one, 2 frisian elements were lost.

Almost all stacks move south for shelter. Osnabruck and Paderborn will be defended and pacified.

October 772

Tue Dec 18, 2018 2:48 am

Levy units have been removed but the vassal units are still available.

One of the challenge with medieval warfare gameplay is to provide something to do during Fall and Winter times.

From October to February, player will have to deal will all non war related features.

For exemple the option to set, or not, the available marches.

Marches have pros (no raiders next year) but also cons ( money cost is high)

Infrastructures decisions are available too

T9_Decisions.png

Some to increase region development level (Clearing, Public Work and Wealth).
Some to increase region network level (Tracks and roads)
Some to build monastery or rebuild walls.

The above decisions are not cosmetic. Wild areas (Saxony, Pannonia) conquest needs frankish armies to move fast and safe trough them.

First the bad news, we lost tour struggle against raiders and therefore lost prestige ( -100 VP) and loyalty (-10 %) in Thuringia and Aquitaine.

During the previous turn Treaty decision was played in four regions in Saxony.
Treaty decision is required for Cede Territory decision.
So, we have the opportunity to play it once, our EP stock being somewhat low.

You may notice that presence of Charlemagne in the vicinity (6 regions) is required to play the Diplomatic Decisions.

It is time to decide the Spring Plaid location. Not a trivial choice as all leaders and vassal have to be present.

Depending on the next campaign goals, a choice has to be made.
