  • Winter - Craftmod
  • Seff - scenes
  • Gerec - weapons
  • stoned-dude - shiny things that look sharp and purdy
Various other modders from whom I've appropriated some lovely stuff. You know who you are, and I hope you know I'm grateful.

Winter, Janus, Yoshiboy, fisheye, Thorgrim and maw for being limitless fountains of knowledge and inspiration, and for having the patience to answer my noob questions.

The dev team for making such a great game.

Forthcoming/planned features:

For the next version:
  • Better prisoner recruitment system, eat your prisoners - done
  • Eight new castles, three each for the Vaegirs and Swadians, two for someone else - in progress
  • Four new factions - in progress
  • Shiny water on the world map, with other improvements. - done
  • Capturable towns and castles, so you can really make progress in the war for the Vaegirs and Swadians, or you can carve out your own kingdom. - in progress
  • Expanded troop trees for all factions, for more variety and tactical options - in progress
  • More items, including but not limited to weaponry, horses and shields - in progress
  • Peasant factions will be attackable - you can go to war with all of Calradia, if you want to. - not under way yet
  • Dionisia and Craftmod both incorporated - not under way yet
  • Lots more heroes - in progress
  • A few little nuggets of comedy to liven things up a bit. - in progress

For later versions:
  • Bigger cities with more to do - like merchants separated into more types selling more specific items - in progress
  • More varied and interesting quests, sometimes given as one-offs by people you meet in cities - talk to everyone! - not under way yet
  • Lots more conversation, with lots of people. Even totally irrelevant things like chats about the weather will be in there. - not under way yet
  • People walking around in cities - not under way yet
  • Faction relations will have more relevance to the game - not under way yet
  • Parties respond to external stimuli - if a caravan between two towns is attacked regularly, the number of escorts will increase. If it's left alone, they go down - not under way yet
  • Diplomatic relations between factions - if you hurt both of them enough, the Swadians and Vaegirs may even form an alliance against you! - not under way yet
  • An expanded economic system, affecting the game world - not under way yet


Things I need doing:

Key
Blue: Needs doing.
Purple: Done to some extent, but still open for more
Red: These are being done
Green: I've got it covered myself

  • Foals of the different horses and stags. For Horse-breeding by Borcha. These need doing.
  • Minor detail - a glowing-hot sword for display on the anvil in Jabbara's smithy. Should be able to do that myself, if it's just a particle effect.
  • Crests for Vaegirs, Swadians, Antler Knights, Dark Knights, Black Khergits and Khergits, Rhodoks and Barbarians. These need doing.
  • Pictures for Items - for now, just wood, gunpowder, jewels, leather and metal. To be bought and sold. - SolemnTear, but the items need modelling and more are always welcome
  • A farm icon for the map. Madsalty - in progress
  • Khergit (not black khergit, just Khergit) settlement meshes, so skin tents etc. Possibly Dynamite Cow.
  • Stag meshes. Crazed Rabbit - done. Now I need a .dds file for it.
  • Helmets with huge and magnificent antlers. These need doing.
  • For the Khergits, a few extra bits of armour and weaponry similar to the Black Khergits (not essential). Tomato, ______?
  • Inquisition armour and weaponry. Tomato - done, with improvements in progress.
  • Extra environment improvements. Madsalty - doing now
  • Extra armour and robes etc. Various contributors, but more are always welcome

If you mean more people in enemy parties, yes, there will be higher maximum limits on the number of NPC parties.

Oh, and messenger, I added it after your post, but take a look at the post above yours - tags to use for your posting. So, would you mind, as a practice, changing the subject of your post to

Re: Forgotten Glory v0.3: Community question

to see how well the tags will work?

Absolutely. You've got the hang of it - little things like that will make it much easier for me to keep track of the thread. Thanks.

Cool mod. Loved the Salt mines, remind me of the great wall of China. The Venician 4 ways in also rocks. I just think it needs a little more... maybe some new weapons.

Hello!! just thought i'd make a post on this forum, Lep the farm is a no-goer at the mo as for some reason wings won't skin it and i can't be bothered to re-mesh it. After exams may consider it.

Fair dos, if it's too much to do while we're in exams it can wait as long as necessary.

If you can, though, have a go at making some tent village icons if you have any spare time.

Manor House Map Icon
« Reply #11 on: January 21, 2007, 08:11:42 AM »
Finally Done the Farm House/Manor house map icon. This has taken a long time to skin as wings exported the roof faces as what can only be described as distorted polygon so i have had to manually bend the texture files the opposite way to the line of the roof to make them look even the slightest bit straight. The rest is OK but the roof just has the appearance of that of an old rustic one:



The only way around this problem of the crooked roof would be to apply a solid texture such as the roofing felt and edges:

Very cool, but maybe a bit modern-looking. The first one is definitely the better, if you can get the kinks out - don't worry about that too much. It'll be too small to notice on the map, really.

Believe it or not the line of the tiles is perfectly smooth in photoshop, this is the problem i've been having with wings.
