PLEASE NOTE THIS MOD REQUIRES THAT UPATCH 1.4 IS INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER!
It has been one year and one day since the brave new world v1.0 was made available. It was definitely time for an update! And after approximately 10-11 months of working on this, I now feel it is ready for release. There has been a ton of content added which I hope BNW players will enjoy. A fixed version of BNW 1.0 is also included in this package which is essentially the v1.1 version which had been making its way thru cyberspace. The only changes to this version are necessary ones in the unit bodies section of the editor so some fixed ILBs are set up properly. I felt it important that this should be included as well.
For players unfamiliar with the original, I should explain that this is a mod which places a great emphasis on heroes. Developing your heroes is an extremely important aspect of game-play and if you do so you will find they are capable of great deeds. This time around, as well as having distinctive portraits, each hero also has a unique body graphic and gone is the generic rider-type for each race. Expect to battle with great looking heroes who smoothly jog around the battlefield with very fluid and realistic animations.
This mod also is very much a tactical combat mod. The battles you have to fight are much more difficult than in the normal game and you will have to defeat powerful creatures as you struggle to expand your empire.
As players of the original might expect, there are many new and exciting creatures which have been added. Some are beautiful while some are bizarre, and still others are downright scary!
You can also expect to find many new artifacts, new map structures, changes to spells and abilities (plus a few new ones) and much, much more!
Finally I will just say that the mod comes with an easy install (same as the original) and this time around we have included some good documentation for you with illustrated tables and lots of information.
So prepare thyself brave one, for the new world beckons!
Excellent Mod -- Best I've ever played...
-ve --> gets myself glued to the PC
Some issues...not with the mod but i got it when playing your mod
1. Dwarven tenderfoot gets stone skin at Gold medal. But when I was in the city with HoE (Earth sphere) she attained gold medal level but she had stone skin already. But when i took her out of the town she lost it...
2. Units are excellent and are of a greater variety... Spirits give more or less same kind of units... though usefull in battles it can be slightly varied...guess we can add more to it in the editor (Could recall doing so)
3. Weapons with fury, enchanted weapon, stone skin and blessed do not give raise in stats ( like +3 def or res) But hero with a weapon containing fury gets willpower... Check this out ..guess i am not the one with this issue.
Heroes getting stone skin in level upgrades get +3 def.
4. Do notknow this is an issue or not...i like it personally. Heroes are a bit over powered ( keeping in mind the initial stats) and they are boosted by a lot of mighty weapons (very cool weapons indeed) but independents are boosted up anyway heroes in our hands win hands down
Thats all for now Cap...
Continue the good work...
