Double chivalry for super7700. Reason: I am in good mood.

Happy Deutschland

Post by Pepp on Fri 8 Aug 2014 - 21:45


Greeting Ladybugs and Twinkle Toes, Shakuni Mama is here again. To be honest, I start to feel like being the herald of this mod. And, to be honest, my modding spirit peak was ended some days ago (it is something like menstrual cycle), causing me to be too lazy to texture anything, and if forced, causing a bad tartar sauce to appear. That is why I show you a 2 weeks old texture, German's units. grinning 



Gefolgmann and Zweihander with their respective upgrades

It only needs 4 months for me to realize that there should be 4 zweihander variations, instead of just 3. And, because I already make their great and legend variation close enough, I have to torn down improved texture instead. Gefolgmann, however, is another thing. I have chosen to use Sioux bow rider (Yes, only the first model uses rifle rider. Robert was wrong here.) and voila, with the help of a cervelliere, it turns out to be great. Gefolgmann replaces light cavalry, causing them to lack mounted swordsman. This, however, is based on the German's lance tradition. Gefolgmann themselves serve as a heavier light cavalry (or lighter knight?). German can still fill their lack of mounted swordsman by training Templar Knight.


Roberto de la Carbonara wrote:Well, at least you thought to use one of the new weapon attachments this time.

So I was texturing 4 order units, 2 of which are remake. While the 2 new units are pretty fine, I find more problem with the remake ones. In the end, the infantry unit looks more like a mafia than a priest warrior...


K&B salutes... Robert. He has made for us a beautiful Venice. It is so sad we can't make gondolas.  Rolling Eyes 
K&B refutes... ISIS. They forced Yezidi to flee. More than that, they tried to infiltrate Indonesia. Netherlands needed.

Neat textures as always. I'm in favor of the Zweihänder designs. A tiny correction though, it's called Gefolgsmann. Muhahahaha

We actually have it down as Gefolgsmann, don't worry. Pepp just misspelled it.

That's possible, or you could use the Advanced Editor plugin, which gives a lot of extra options in the Scenario Editor, including the ability to set the angle of the camera and to unlock it altogether, allowing for infinite zoom in.

We prefer to see it as dormant. No significant progress has been made over the last few months, but we don't have any intention of dropping K&B either.

"No significant progress has been made over the last few months", as I said in my last post. I'm sorry it is that way, but life sometimes gets in the way of spending a lot of time on modding. Mind you, the mod is by no means dead, and we'll resume work on it as soon as we're able.

So here we are, eleven months and two days after the last Friday Update. Nearly a year of radio silence. However, as the mod approaches its eighth birthday, we're back!

As I mentioned on Facebook, the French are going to be the next civ to get our major attention. Having worked our way up through the Iberian peninsula by pretty much finishing the Moors and Spanish, it's now times for a feast of croissants, baguettes and onion soup, with a Bordeaux red alongside it; les Français. The French civ in K&B is a rather peculiar one. It's one of the European civs, so it follows the same basic principles that the Italians and Byzantines that you're all familiar with do, but the French are more unique than either of those two civs.

Most of our civs have a specific period on which they focus. The Saracens for instance are very much focused on the time of Salah-al-Din, and the Spanish focus on the latter days of the Reconquista, leading in to the Age of Discovery. The French, meanwhile, focus on the Hundred Years' War. In many ways, the Hundred Years' War was an absolute dark age for the French. Beset on all sides by the English and their Burgundian and Navarrese allies, while having to fight related but separate wars against Flanders, Brittany and Portugal, the French were pushed to the absolute limit of their resilience. Anybody who gets his history from stereotypes, or has no interest in anything earlier than the Second World War, would probably expect the French to start waving white flags around, but they'd be very wrong indeed. Granted, the French nobility was largely broken in morale by the latter stages of the war, but the French peasantry wasn't having any of it. They rose up in defence of their country, and under the nigh-mythical leadership of Jeanne d'Arc they actually managed to push back their enemies. It should come as no surprise at this point that Jeanne d'Arc is the French AI personality in K&B. Even more than just her personal achievements, she was the epitome of a prevailing trend in France at the time, of low-born peasants defending crown and country when the nobility had pretty much given up, a level of caring for matters of state among the lower classes that could well be seen as an early portent of principles of citizenship and nationhood that weren't established until the 18th century.

In our next Friday Update, we'll talk more about how this part of French history translates to actual gameplay, but for now, let's take a look at some pictures instead. Our resident wolf in nun's clothing Pepp has been finishing up the Slavic units, among them the Konny Kusznik, the Slavic replacement of the Knight:


Meanwhile, Persian_Fusilier has been making some new portraits for the Barbarian units of the Goths and the Visigoths:



This week, Pepp summarised K&B's situation perfectly. It's been a bit odd for all of us to go back to something we haven't really looked at for months...

Pepp wrote:Wow, this is so old. I am sure we have left the mod not for 3 months, more like 3 seasons...


K&B salutes... you. You, the people who have been asking for our return, and you 434 (at the time of writing) Facebook subscribers. I know I've been very touched by how much K&B means to you, which I still find amazing...
K&B refutes... nothing, really. We'll skip the cynicism and general despair for this week.

Quite. The situation in Greece is also more something to get sad about, rather than angry, I feel...

Okay, this week is going to be a rather brief Friday Update. Of course we could spend a lot of time talking about the French in further detail, and have no doubt we will, but it struck me just today that between the last Friday Update of last year and the time the mod went dormant, we actually made quite a lot of textures, some of which are definitely worth showing. So, rather than having to plough your way through walls of text, you can just sit back and enjoy the pictures:


The Sword Brother, a melee unit with a secondary ranged attack coming from the Livonian Order


Tomb Raider Tumen Raider, a unique unit of the Mongols


The Town Center of the Far Eastern buildingset (please don't mind the Italian flag)


A redo of the Swiss Pikeman mercenary


Portraits of the Kharijite Archer and Hashashin, both Barbarian units


This week's quote comes from your's truly, and is the newest in a long line of mysterious and ultimately unrevealing Quotes of the Week:

peugeot407 wrote:That is actually a very interesting one. Maybe we could turn that glitch into a feature!


K&B salutes... president of the US Barack Obama, for his excellent displays of humour lately.
K&B refutes... president of Russia Vladimir Putin, because, er, well, uhm, because it's been a while since we last refuted him, and he doesn't deserve it any less these days...
