Speed and Stability mod for Last Days 3_23
« on: April 15, 2013, 09:29:15 PM »
Mod    Speed&Stability 1.0    for mod Last Days v.3.23

Author: MAXHARDMAN.

- improve mod game speed and stability.
- fix or reduce number RGL error’s with vertex buffer memory.
- if you don’t need speed , you may increase units number.

Mount&Blade used LODs (Level Of Detail) system for improve game performance but unfortunately not all models in original Last Days have LODs .
Same gamers ( and I too ) have RGL error’s with vertex buffer memory, reduce number polygons fix this problem .
Must work with most mods for Last Days, but you need first install Speed&Stability and after another mods.
 
For increase speed and stability I make:
- LODs for all other models in Last Days module ( more then 600 ) .
- Remake all models for spawn items ( arrows, thrown spears and axe ) for low poly. For spawn object lods not work.
   Big problem if hundreds archers spawn hundreds arrows in one time (special in siege).
- Optimize textures (Resize few textures for small object. Add mipmaps for objects, remove mipmaps for interface. Remove not needed alpha channel).
- Make animated lod1 for all staff (quiver, bow, scabbard and other).

If you dont have more problem with crash with RGL error , but have crash with Newton.dll - disable ragdoll (or maybe reduce unit number).
Newton.dll - old physic engine in M&B , it work for regdoll and collisions.
If you have 4 Gb (3.5 for 32 bit) you can enable Large Address for M&B exe , and for you Operation System , its fully remove problem.

INSTALLATION : run Speed_and_Stability_LD.exe and choose <Mount&Blade mod Last Days v.3.23> folder.

Good , just test it and write you opinion for other users. Add few pics with 400 units battle Rohan vs Isengard. Without mod i have crash with 200 units. BTW Rohan loose , wolf riders crash all infantry easily.

Thank you, MAXHARDMAN! You are the hero.

This was the issue I never mustered enough dedication to finish, there were so many LODs...

Thank you for your effort Maxhardman!  8)

We hurried to get the game released, and left many things unfinished.
It is the hard work and dedication of people like you, that makes this community great. :)

Can some report on the stability or any other possible issues?  I'm really looking forward to adding this, I just prefer to make sure its not a beta.

I'm sorry if I am posting in the wrong thread! 

I love this mod and I just started playing a few days ago. Everytime I play it will lock up at some point, the screen just freezes and locks my ENTIRE machine. I have to do a hard reset.

I am wondering if this Speed&Stability mod will fix that or if it's something else.

Thanks for any suggestions/help!

How 'bout reading the aptly named (and stickied) Optimization thread? Installing this won't hurt either.

^^^^ LOL! Douchebag. Thanks for editing my post instead of a proper reply. You're just awesome!

This is how we do things. Don't like it? Too bad. To be honest, I did answer your questions, so take your butthurt somewhere else, please.

SCOUT MISSIONS BUGGED BY THIS MOD?

Hi all,

after making a new install with this mod on top I can`t finish the "scout settlements" missions awarded after The Great War starts.
No matter how long I run around a settlement the "scouted" message doesn`t appear.

Anyone else having this?

Rgds, Oldtimer
