Ralyks, thank you very much for all your contributions for the PoP wiki, it's amazing! I discovered this mod recently and wiki was of great help! I cannot even imagine how many hours was invested into it by all contributors, especially you. Thank you again and good luck in everything! :)
Hope ur doing well and that 2019 is treating you well, i left a thing on the 3.9.3 changelog page saying i have a nexus mods profile now (kinda) (yay, branching out). Gorvex mentioned that the guys from pop, and himself weren't really into nexus for some reason but he wouldn't say why.
Anyway, just thought i'd let u know incase ur interested in still talking at all. If so just reply here and we'll trade info!
Oh, right. Nexusmods is not really a good place to discuss things. It's not even a forum: there are no boards, topics and whatnot that could separate the different posts to categorize them. It's just a big mess of one single list of posts per mod.
And as I said, it's the least active platform (in terms of posts) among TW forum, this Wiki, Reddit, Discord and ModDb. You can see it by the frequency of replies and posts. That's already a good reason by itself why we don't visit it much.
Oh, so its just cause not too many other taleworlds game players go there much? OK. I assumed it was cause u guys (devs,mostly)didn't like how people had to pay for better service and stuff on nexus e.g premium membership and what not.
As for me personally, I've only really chatted to a couple of modders there, and I do it directly, not on the mod pages posts tab. I only posted one thing on a post tab, joining in making a request and once on the bug section to report a suspected bug. So I was thinking ralyks and I could talk like that if he were interested. No fuss if he isn't. Just an alternative whilst I don't have any media platforms. Anyway.
Dang, thats real enthusiasm, way more than EGs watching Noldors being shot
I dont think I have an account there, like Gorvex said, its somewhat dead and doesnt seem it will recover anytime soon
That said, kudos for making an account somewhere, as that means you also made an email
Unfortunately, im somewhat busy irl, finished my studies and since october, im working, which sadly drags a lot of my daily free time into the trash can, but it helps me grow professionally and feeds my CV for later and better jobs
Tbh, i did talk it with a really good friend a month ago and in a couple of years, we plan to move out of Spain, and believe it or not, your country was one of the ones I preferred, along with Canada, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, which only Denmark and Australia coincide with mine (one of his choices was Rusia lol)
Nice to see you still around here Gorvex :P, hope u doin' gr8 m8!
Lastly, Mr. Aussie, do you have in mind any nickname so that I could refer to you more appropiately?
Oh right, I forgot that nexus has premium membership. Anyways, the reason why you couldn't see me or Ralyks on nexus much, is/was mostly because of what I said above. Nothing to do with premium membership, user policy or whatever.
Take care, and have a nice day you too :)
Edit: we probably posted at the same time @Ralyks, hence I didn't see your reply, LOL :D
How are you doing? Do you enjoy your job still? Or that's partly why you consider moving out abroad?
As for working in general, I also have my hands full with work since September, so I can perfectly understand the general lack of free time. So many projects are going on at our electricity distribution company right now! PV systems everywhere, smart grid, voltage regulation, reclosers, E-mobility, energy storage, DSM, new SCADA system expanded with low-voltage operation control, Dispatcher Training Simulator, network and substation renovations, and so on! I'm lovin' it! :D
@Ralyks. Well, the "kinda" was there for a reason. I actually made a deal with a friend, i make an nexus account for him (he couldn't be bothered) with his email in exchange for me using it as well. So it's...co-owned? As it turns out im really the only one who uses it as he doesn't really use mods much. Anyway, where in Australia would u move? I'm in victoria (state). (Funny, always thought it'd be cool to meet u in person) As for a nickname, as much as i've enjoyed the "Various Questions" Gimmick/Identity, once i make a wikia account and assume full ownership of the nexus account i'd like to be called "WildSong" possibly with some numbers after it depending on if its taken. So don't worry, i'll get an email soon (i say for the 4827th time:) I'll probs be going for a job soon so i'll need one. So should i "title" my posts here "WildSong" now?
@Gorvex Yeah, i see. Lol, it was immediatly after i posted that i finally understood the "Lack of structure" u mentioned.
Uhh, the Australia thing aint a short-term thing, its an idea that may or not occur depending on what happens, couple of years is quite a bit.
Oh, so various questions was intended as a gimmick and not like a title for what's going just after? I feel tricked lol.
WildSong? May I ask from what you made that up? Just curious
"I'll probs be going for a job soon so i'll need one" this surprised me plentifully, are you not like 13? 14? Or I've scammed and you're like a 20yo guy?
Don't title anything, just make a wiki account with that email from your fellow and you'll have your WildSong nickname on every comment/post you make. Although I made my way to ban as much ads as I could from this wiki (as I don't get paid for it and they're annoying af), I think you get less if you're logged in, also you can gather useless achievements and have your own profile page.
Yeah, realised that after i'd posted i'd kinda jumped the gun w/the whole Australia thing. Just excited to be hearing from u and as i said, i'd always wondered what'd be like to meet u in person. So yeah :)
I added the gimmick/identity because i didn't know how to put it (hence 2 possible ways to say it instead of a certain sounding 1 option). The "Various Questions" title origionally started as just that, a topic/sub title to let people know that i didn't have a specific question but more so some various ones unlike the topic below titled "Character Creation Tool". That has a specific point of converstation. Mine...not so much. Then...idk, as i've said earlier somewhere (i think) i didn't want to be just a "fandom user" but have some sort of identity but not be able to get an account. So i just became my thing.
As for "WildSong". Well, i'm a fairytail fan (it's an anime, don't judge;) and one day a friend who also likes it found fairytail found a guild name generator, one of those generic ones that uses like ur 1st letter of ur first and last name or ur date and month of birth, anyway, mine was WildSong. Eversince i've just felt that'd be a cool username. And it kinda fits me, i'm a "Wacky Aussie" as u put one day and i love music. I'm gonna design a Guild logo for it this year. (Anyone else reading, "WildSong" is mine ya hear!? ;P)
As for the whole getting a job soon, yeah...nearly 18 so not quite 20 but not as fresh as 14, in my defence i started talking to u when i was what, almost 17? So technically 16 which is just under an age normally considered an adult...so yeah, no scamming here. And i'm still young at heart. :)
As for making my profile with the friends email, can i change the email address the wikia account is signed to after it's made? Thats what i'll do w/the nexus one soon so i'll only use his (if he lets me) if i can change that later. If not i'll be Various Questions/WildSong till i have mine. WHICH WILL HAPPEN....soon :P
Um...so i left a post here a few moments ago, refreshed an now it won't show. it's saying it posted and it's here https://pop3.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:23983#8 but i can't see it right here on ur page. Unless it shows up later, idk whats up. If anyone can see it here, pls say so. I'm so confused. i saved a copy so i can post it here again if needs be but still...weird.
Gave it a go at some quick low-res logo for WildSong, first basic one, then adding some different colors. And an extra one that was like more elegant. They're just basic designs for you to grab ideas idk
You can change the email of a wiki account youre using whenever you want, just go to "My Preferences" -> "Email" (this won't show up unless you're registered :P)
Im then hella surprised you're so restricted being not so young as I thought, and I dont think its a common thing on the country, idk if your parents had a bad experience or they're just unused and fearsome of what they've heard on media or idk tbh. I get the point better safe than sorry, but with 17yo... feels strange, same for working at 18yo, you normally enter university at that age
As for thoses designs, pretty good but not the direction i was heading. I was gonna have a lion/big cat paw print and a treble clef inside, hadn't condsidered lettering but an interesting thing i could incorperate. Thanks :)
As for the Wikia/Email thing...great, in that case ill probs ask the guy and use theirs till i get mine. Thanks again, for that info. Can we change our username as well? Just curious.
As for the 17'n no email. Yeah...lets just say, social media is a very good way to track people down and thats something this russian spy didn't want or need. Did u know u don't need Facebook to be tracked down with it? Hah, fun fact.
Whilst i think of it, can u also change ur email for ur discord? Like nexus and wikia?
Yay, an online bro!
...Have a Nice Day...Bro :P (don't worry, i won't milk it:)
I know the facebook thing. I used v often facebook like 7 years ago, but since the last 3 or so, its kinda dead for me, and happy that I took that decission. The app is not on my phone (god bless now its removable, before it wasnt without rooting your phone). But you can have a email acc and not have facebook, idk why one thing has to lead to the other one. I have Google Home at home (sounds redundant lol), and that thing hears me out 24/7. Im not afraid, for two big reasons, first is that I'm a nobody (I mean, not important worldwide), if its for ad targeting, i have ublock on pc and blockada on phone, so im safe, second is that I dont do bad stuff, im not planning a bomb attack on Madrid, joining Isis, traffic illegal drugs or nothing alike (at least for now ;P, fear me Madrid! haha), so nothing I should be afraid of.
About discord... sure, you can, but please, this lazyness of yours is starting to piss me off, literally googling "discord change email" will get you the answer without even having to go in to any page.
Was hoping to have an account by the time i posted next but something has been eating away at me so i wanna clear the air and apologise. About the whole "laziness", sorry about that and sorry it made you feel that way. I was under the assumption that you would just know seeing as you already had an account. Maybe just checked your settings for an option. I totally forgot google was a thing, i won't make excusses but i was on a bus with tacky internet when i asked, simply to reply to you. Again, no excuses. I will say this though, it just felt/feels better to hear it from someone i'm familiar with and whose word i trust. Yes, i've only known u online for ...a year? More?! But still, i appreciate you doing that for me. Haven't been able to contact my friend yet but hopefully shortly you'll be hearing from WildSong.
Ooh that was quick, so im porting the strange (samurai) armor from floris into pop so i can have a samurai cko (mwahaha). i've followed the stuff we spoke about earlier with the 90' plume helmet dooda. It's all worked except the textures. The textures aren't in the same brf's as their armor, instead they are all in one brf. I've put the textures in the pop textures folder and even added the texture brf and loaded them all in the ini file. The textures are showing up in the brf's but not ingame, the armor is white. The only thing i can think is to add the textures/material to the brf's with the armors but then i thought, how does it work like this with floris then? Any idea how to fix this?
Also, seeing as it'll be buried in the "View all replies" @Ralyks i've responded to ur post.
Have a Nice Day, (assuming i'm no longer awake to reply)
Hm. First of all, do you get a red error message saying something about "missing mesh" when you are checking the armor in-game? If that's the case, then renaming the mesh within the .brf file (and of course for the item that uses it in item_kinds1.txt) to something else should fix it.
As for the textures and materials being in a different .brf file than the meshes, it happens in certain cases indeed (which is a pain in the ass to mod, you'll see). Whereas you need both the meshes, materials, textures, shaders and speculars for the item to show correctly under all scenarios. Sometimes you also need the bumps. Just follow these steps:
Locate the mesh file that the samurai armor uses (from item_kinds1.txt of Floris). Then press 'CTRL+F' to bring up the search function within OpenBRF and search for that mesh, to see in which .brf file it is.
Open that up, and in the 'Mesh' tab, have a look at the 'Material' cell. The name listed there is the material (.dds) that the mesh calls for.
Press 'CTRL+F' to bring up the search function again, and now locate the .brf file that has the material.
Open it, and in the 'Material' tab, you'll see the file name of the shader ('Shader'), the file name of the texture ('DiffuseA'), the bump ('Bump', if there is one used at all) and the specular ('Specular'). Search for these files individually (all of them are .dds files), and locate in which .brf they are in.
Make sure that these files do not exist in PoP already (especially the shaders). If yes, then compare the contents individually, and either change the names (both in the .brf and the name of the .dds file) if the content is different but the name is the same, or use the original .brf file if the contents are the same and it's already loaded in module.ini. Otherwise don't load that .brf just for that, as it will load stuff that you don't need too, causing more stress for your computer. That's why we will remove the unnecessary files in the next step.
Now copy all the .brf and .dds files that do not already exist to the 'Resource' and 'Textures' folder of PoP respectively. Then load those .brf-s and delete all the unnecessary (that were not listed in the 'Material' tab) textures, materials, speculars, bumps and shaders from the respective .brf files. Then save the now truncated .brf files.
You could try to move the materials, textures and meshes into a single .brf file for the sake of simplicity, but I'm not sure how that works, I never did that before. But there are Copy/Cut/Import commands, so I guess one of them should do the trick. If you succeed, then you obviously won't need some of the copied over .brf files anymore, so you may delete these
Finally, add the entry for the remaining .brf-s to the module.ini of PoP.
Oh, and as always, make sure that you copied the new item's entry to the end of item_kinds1.txt of POP (before items_end), otherwise you'll shift away the items in the inventories of various troops.
So i've already done pretty much that, and got no red errors. So i tried to import the materials/textures from the texture folder but they would join up and be that overlapping thing. So in a brief stroke of genius i literally imported everything from the floris material brf, deleted everything i didn't need and voilla 2 outta 3 are working (cause they're on the same texture .dds.
Thanks for ur help dude but i solved it (YAY i can mod...ish)
Also, @Raklyks, i've responded to ur post up above, it's just buried in the "view all replies".
Hey, @Gorvex, so i've used the cko tweak, and the armor won't show up in the pool, yes i've pressed j in the map view and it should've worked but as i said it wont appear. They have a strength requisite of 9 and 7 so my knights should be able to use them straight away. Any ideas?
Also, @Raklyks, i've responded to ur post up above, it's just buried in the "view all replies".
As for the CKO unlock tweak, it doesn't work indeed, I didn't notice it just yet. I thought to myself that if I can see which items are unlocked upon pressing "J", then the tweak must work right. Turns out it doesn't. I'll contact the author.
For the time being, in item_kinds.txt, you could swap the locations of the samurai armor pieces at the end of the file with some unused/rarely used armor pieces that are available for your CKO. That have a similar price ofc. I suggest swapping with the following items:
body armor: Black_Mail_&_Plate (itm_surcoat_over_mail_01)
boots: Jatu_Guard_Boots (itm_khergit_guard_boots) -> used only by Jatu Warlords (2x times) and K'Juda the Ravager (1x), so swap boots in their inventories as well (Troop editor within Morgh's Editor, after making the swap in item_kinds1.txt.
Because they can be found in Native as well, so you don't have to borrow them from Floris. And as such, it's possible that all the files needed are already in PoP too, it's just that the items' entries are missing from item_kinds.txt. At least I've found fragments of the body armor in wb_materials.brf and wb_textures.brf in PoP's module. But the rest could be missing still, I didn't check thoroughly.
Eyo @Gorvex, i'm almost completely sure it did/does work, a couple of weeks ago when i found the tweak, i made the mystical ruby rune plate armor for cko. I'm almost certain it showed up in the item pool. i didn't equip them with it. Sadly i deleted that save as the rp was getting stale imo. Although i'll eagerly wait for you to here from the author, i think i'll check again w/ruby armor as soon as i have a cko that can use it. Also, thanks for that alternative in the meantime.
As for the samurai armor, i can't find any google images of it but floris gives it a cool, more realistic imo, makeover. it looks so cool on all 20 pop companions, equipped w/ strange armor, boots and helmet, arquebus, strange sword, bullets and elite cavalry/d'shar (heraldic) shield.
Actually i found a picture of the armor google search "mount and blade floris" in images and scroll down till about five images till you see a guy in pop unicorn armor (not the black one), click it then it's the image next to it. That's how i found it, hopefully the same for you.
Also, @Raklyks, i've responded to ur post up above, it's just buried in the "view all replies".
What's so important im missing to see this "Also, @Raklyks, i've responded to ur post up above, it's just buried in the "view all replies"." spam, not once or twice, but six times!? And a couple of them with spelling mistake on my name, like the one I copied above >.>
Chill WildSong, you do not want to look like a psycho
Eyo, sorry @Ralyks, i just didn't want it to seem as though i'd moved straight on from you when i started talking to @Gorvex, sorry if it annoyed you. if you found the post i'm talking about, it's pretty much me apologising for being "Lazy". It was important to me as i didn't want to annoy you and felt bad about it. Sorry to annoy you...again. AND for spelling your name wrong. :)
That said, may i ask why my previous post was deleted? Afaik, i didn't break any rules did I? Wasn't disrespectful? or was it just cause i added the "Also, @Raklyks, i've responded to ur post up above, it's just buried in the "view all replies"." and you were like "Well, i've had enough o this."?
Cause i was still asking @Gorvex a question. Sorry to look like a psycho, haven't slept much last couple of days. Maybe it's taking its toll. Idk. Can it be returned or should i rewrite it minus the aforementioned line?
P.S just waiting to hear back from that guy, then (hopefully) you'll officially hear from WildSong ;)
Eyo, yeah, i had a post between ur "What's so important" and @Gorvex's " Oh, so it's probably just for newly added items then" posts. And where it was is a lil message saying "This reply has been removed", it might show up as the same ip as i was using a VPN at the time. so yeah.
But it was in my standard "Format" so anyone reading, who knew how i've been posting would've known. Idk, fortuantely i had shotty internet last night and copied the post. Should i just repost it minus the "Buried beneath posts" bit? or leave it? wasn't too important but just weirded me out.
"Don't live so Frightened" - he tells the person with gad. Lol. That said, if i do anything like the "buried beneath posts" or anyother...strange things like asking u about stuff instead of googling it, it'll be because of that (gad) i'm not crazy, just got that, and i'm alot better than i was the last two years but still. And i still don't have permission for the email as i haven't brought it up as i've been very busy as of late.
(if it matters any more this is [an edited] version of what i posted and was deleted. I've since discovered that it ain't just the admins that can delete comments but any registered member,sorry for assuming it was you @Ralyks. So for who ever deleted my comment, can i please know why?)
Eyo, so it's just new (non-pop) armors that won't appear? Damn, that sucks, any idea or word back from the author about if this can be "fixed"? Do u think that it has to do with the amount of spaces the cko pool recognises? Like how we have to extend the item and cheat menu "range"? Because imo it must be something like that. Tbh, because the armor doesn't have high stats, i expected it to be within the 1st or 2nd tier sections but iirc both of those were full. Maybe more item slots are needed? Idk, just throwing out ideas.
As for the armor, yeah it's pretty good, better than native imo. Really hoping/looking forward to make that cko w/them. I was getting ready to break my ocd and change the armors around in "item_kind txt"...then i heard of 3.9.4...Ugh i'll have to do it all over again...yay POP 3.9.4 :)
Edit - i've changed the armours around and my cko looks BOSS.
@WildSong: I got no replies from the author (VonDegurechaff) since then, otherwise I would've let you know amd I would've updated the tweak... But I think I know why new items can't be added on top of everything for your CKO: it's the source code that compiles the item lists for your CKO at a game's start, which was said by the developers to not be editable from the outside (in forms of tweaks). I just didn't fully believe this statement up until now, as some things turned out to be editable despite being told the opposite. So yeah, the only method so far is the item swap that I described earlier.
Yeah, i kinda realised that you'd probably reply to the topic if you'd heard back from VonDegurechaff...after i posted the post the first time (original post).
As stated in the first paragraph, most of the post (2nd and 3rd paragraph) were the aforementioned, mysteriously deleted post i'd posted earlier and was posting it if anyone felt it was at all still relevent.
Yeah, i thought it might be the source code as well (we touched on that topic briefly when talking about adding my 90' plumes legion helmet) but i too thought this was not the case when i found that tweak.
Do you think it might be something that could be made editable via txt files or something? I know @Gorvex is one man, but Paradox Interactive have managed to convert almost all of there source code stuff to be moddable via txt editing and stuff (the main point is that lots of things in source code can be made editable)
I honestly didn't see your "deleted" post, that's why I had no idea what you referred to when you said that you are still waiting for a reply from me. Btw, it's also possible that the mentioned post wasn't even sent if you were typing from a phone, as cancelling a reply to continue it later usually does that (you click on "reply" and nothing happens).
I honestly have no more clues on what could be done. Beside getting known to the module system (python files), and try to mod/tweak from there. "The Forge" on TW forum surely has some info on this to get you started. But I don't even know if that would be enough, and if you can come around the source code of PoP (not Warband's) this way. Guess not...
Eyo, yeah, i wasn't using my phone, actually haven't used it to post since @Ralyks came back. But i was using shotty internet and a VPN to hopefully boost it slightly. Maybe that's what happened, idk, i've posted the original (minus the "Also, @Raklyks, i've responded to ur post up above, it's just buried in the "view all replies"." post that slightly irritaded @Ralyks. It's doesn't seem relevent anymore as we've covered everything it spoke of so i'll drop it now and blame the internet. Idk :)
As for the python files......yeah, that doesn't imtimidate me at all...*gulps*. I'll give the "forge" a browse when i can but...yeah. Ah well, i've got some armor i can swap out now so it's all good, when i get sick of samurai i'll jst change the armor :)
It'd be AMAZING if Konrad did something about this in 3.9.4....not expecting it but still, should i post the idea on the changelog page? Maybe get it noticed... ?
Unfortunately, I quitted some time ago with updating PoP wiki, its pretty stable and clean RN compared, masively changed when I grabbed it and started working on it, but Barclay changes were just poking my nerves and what came at last was just infuriating, and I could do nothing about it. So I just quitted PoP, and therefore, its wiki, apologies for the users that use it, but like I said, its pretty good already, little left
So feel free to edit it yourself. Except for a couple of pages, the rest remains free to edit by anyone, as I left a couple of guys that seemed trustworthy on charge and they've been doing fine with cleaning unwanted spam and answering questions/issues.
You don't need my permission again as you already had it from before :P
Lastly, apologies for the late reply. Good luck buddy!
Ralyks, thank you very much for all your contributions for the PoP wiki, it's amazing! I discovered this mod recently and wiki was of great help! I cannot even imagine how many hours was invested into it by all contributors. Thank you again and good luck in everything :)
I was the same dude that thanked you during 3.9's release specifically for how you kept updating everything.
For some reason, I feel compelled to thank you. You take the time to make edits and reply to comments. I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to express gratitude for your hard work, I suppose it's probably me seeing real hard work being done that I feel the need to express this one's gratitude to you.
Eyo, firstly. Anyone know where @Ralyks is? Is he Finally done with wikia or just preoccupied with stuff maybe? if you (Ralyks) read this, just thought i'd let you know that i've responded below but if your busy then thats cool. Just a bit weirded out by your absense. Then anxiety takes over. :)
On to my actual question, now i know i could post this on Konrads wall but he seems to visit other pages more than his own ;) But could someone pls ask or direct either konrad or maybe even Saxondragon if needs be, to this question (you'll understand why in a moment). I've been writing a story for a few years now but fell into a year long writers block. I've decided to do a reboot, im redoing everything and was wondering (because i love it so much) if i could use either name locations or factions names and descriptions (not exact [description] but as inspiration) from POP in my story.
I could throw credit to the nessecary people if needs be, thats cool:) Maybe i'll use some town and village names as paying homage but more specific, i love the idea of a mettenheim country in my story and cant think of another name for it. So i thought i'd ask here to prevent copyright issues. If i cant use any, does anyone have a name like "mettenheim". Thanks:)
Im just pissed off by the development of the game, how they twisted Barclay and its influence, first from the original Spanish influence to a "Spanglish" one (that had close to nothing from both), to now be changed to have some weird mixed French (& Ottoman?) influence. There were a couple of other things that triggered me, specially from 3.9, but Barclay is the one that triggers me the most.
I dont feel like working to support the devs of this game nor wasting my time when they cared little for the wikia and still to this day, its not officially supported nor linked to the game by them. Well, I should've quitted since 3.9.0 came out, but I didnt like that the community will suffer my anger towards the development of the game, so I kept on, but they just keep opening old wounds, pissing me more and more. Well, im done, even after 3.9.2 came out, i stood by, updating and improving some stuff in pages, but I refused to change anything from Barclay, as it deeply triggers me. Until they revert these weirdo bullsh*t changes to Barclay, I won't be working anymore for them nor the wikia, I won't waste my time working for someone and something that pisses me off.
Eyo, Ralyks. Really great to hear from you. Started to get worried, pls don't take that weirdly, for a while you've seemed really down/sad then vanished completely and given our respective ages (kinda guessing ur 21-23, when u said u lived in spain for 21 years idk how long ur in england for so yeah) and what seems to happen to sad young men in that age range/area/thing (if you know what i mean) i got worried (anxiety:). Then i wondered if my phone AND pc were having a fit (like that one that happened to me ages ago) and not updating. Maybe a whole convo happened and i didn't even know.
As for being done with the team, idk if i should say im sorry to hear that, if its causing you so much "frusteration" then i guess its for the best dude. That said, you not "wasting anymore time" with wikia, does that mean you wont pop in at all anymore (i know it sounds selfish, but not even to talk to lil old me?). WILL YOU EVEN READ THIS? Oh the suspense! BTW sorry i haven't made the email and accounts yet, had personal stuff to deal with.
We should totally start one of those online petition things to LIBERATE BARCLAY!!!!!! ;)
As for the book thing, ah well. Guessed as much, ill get to him about that at some point.
THIS ISN"T EVEN LINKED TO THE GAME!? Uh, mildly stupid. (i use the term "mildly" mildly here) Is there a way to make that so? (linked to the game).
Given the way you feel (at the time of posting) i think you need one of these. HAVE A NICE DAY:) (applies whenever u read this:)
Drastic changes sometimes occur, and often they do suck
Like now, I really try to avoid even having a look at the wiki, as I dont want to get hooked like it happened 2 and a half years ago and that soaked soooo much time of mine. Now I dont feel like doing edits, when I open a page all that fullfills me is boredom. Like I really want to quit this as i felt trapped for long and i was unable to quit for months, even though I publicly asked for a volunteer to continue wikia so that I could quit, but noone showed up. I understand it, as its a non-paid job that takes many many hours (now few as wikia is kinda complete, at least up to 3.9.1). I feel free, and i dont want to be trapped into this again.
Feel free to email me, however im a bit hesitant on having a mail conversation, but i guess its the only way, so ill give you a secondary one of mine: email@example.com, however, if you search a bit, you'll be able to find the main one, but I just dont want it to be spammed (which may happen if i post it here publicly, idk)
If you want more friendly and fast replies, you gotta give it a go at whatsapp, but i refuse to share phone number publicly. As you cant pm me, ill reply you on mail (as there's no other way right?)
I can give you a secondary account on the forum as well if you still want to pm saxondragon or even me, but again, like above, i wont its username and pw publicly
"Is there a way to make that so?" MM refused to and said it on the forum, its not that i care much now, as im out of wikia, but those words were not pleasant when i was working on a daily basis here
So by the way your reply sounds. This'll be one of if not the last time we'll see of or here from u here. Ill give getting that (my) email another push. Thanks for the email/link to use. I'll get in touch soon. Don't worry, you'll know its me ;) As for not handing out phone numbers publicly, well Sir, great minds think alike. Till next time. Have a nice day bro. :)
Good luck Ralyks, it was nice to have you here! (I bet you haven't seen my profile that I made at the moment I joined here) :D
I know that I definitely don't have the devotion to spend my free time on adding/editing bigger content on this Wikia. It's so boring and time-consuming for a tiny little mod in the big life schedule...
Eyo, Firstly @Ralyks idk if you just havent viewed your wall yet or thought i hadn't replied. i replied in the "EYO, WELCOME BACK RALYKS!!!!!!!:)" conversation and have 2 unanswered questions. sorry if i annoyed you by simply starting a convo about you answering another convo.
BUT I HAVEN'T!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA. i also have a new question...now i know what your going to say..."ask Konrad" they'll say, "ask SaxonDragon" they'll say. Well...NYER!!!! (not a word, just a sound i made whilst typing:) Anyway, do you think they will add all of/ most of the armours from POP3 into POP4 (maybe not the generic ones but the faction specifics) or make a special patch that you can add that has all those armours? Thanks bro :)
Y, im done with wikia, doing stuff almost here everyday for 2 and a half years and im very tired to keep on, I said I wanted to find anyone that felt trustable to take the lead im stepping back from, for several months. Nothing shows up? Well, im still done, not gonna delay myself more and more just because noone wants to take this non-paid "job"
About the influence, indeed, its all messed up
I dont know. Models are good and optimized, but will they work on Bannerlord? Who knows, if they can, it will make stuff way easier
About me being on the team for Bannerlord... well, its still far from releasing, so I dont know on the long term. I just finished my studies this June and Ill be searching for my first job, so I even dont know how my near future will be
There'll be a last release for Warband, but it'll be minor stuff. Konrad is on holidays atm so atm its paused, so you have plenty of time to give it a go at 3.9.2 if you want
Hope this helps :)
PS: you sound a bit like a crazy maniac sometimes lol
Hm, will you still pop in some times, even just to have a squiz, maybe answer a question or have a chat? Tbh, hearing you talk about the strain managing the wikia is taking on you makes me sad and lately I've been pondering whether or not I should TRY. I'd need a couple of "lessons" to get it how you like. Might take some time, might fail but I'd be willing to try. Just need to work up courage to do the email then I'll be set. :)
So, a POP French revolution... This must be the snake cults doing...seriously, there are too many French influenced mods for m&b. Spanish is better.
As for armours, oh well, just thought I'd ask.
I didn't necessarily mean the bannerlord team but the pop team in general. Will u still kit with Konrad and stuff, maybe comment on forums? Is it a case of your just done with wikia or being a high up member of the pop team?
As for 3.9.3, I know, I'm enjoying 3.9.2 in the mean time.
I sound like a crazy maniac? Lol, that's just how I am most times, open, honest and a lil wacky (not in a weird or bad way). I've been accused of it before and probably will again;)
Just curious, big question (for me at least) when I have an email and ur done with wikia would you be interested in still talking? Kinda like a penpal with computers. I really enjoy our conversations and correct me if I'm wrong but I kinda feel you open up to me a bit more than others here on wikia. Again. Correct me if I'm wrong. :)
Noone taught me on wikia, I learnt from trying stuff and searching through google. But thats for more complex stuff, like the countdown I did for the polls or the "expand/hide" toogles, making a page (for example, Barclay Janissary, requires little to no knowledge, and I set the wikia so that you dont even need to make an account to do new pages or edits.
Like i said, I dont know whats gonna happen next. For all the 3.9 patches, it was mainly all Konrad doing the work. Saxondragon said he wants to be for the Bannerlord releases, and whilst Im curious to see how having him in the lead is, I also feel like my time with PoP may be done. But dont quote me on this, its just im pissed for the double gangbang Barclay received, as well as some other minor stuff
heh, you wacky aussie ;) i like that word
I dont mind, but some of the people that added me from the wikia (on steam) were kinda disturbing or too selfish and toxic and I ended up blocking them (happened twice). We could even play some games if you feel confident and not excessively wacky :P
1. OK, so most of the knowledge I need can just be googled? Cool, well maybe just some tips to make it fit the uniform standard you've made? Eg. Pretty sure somewhere, to someone else, you mentioned using a different program. Just small stuff like that. Once I start I'll probably have some more small questions like that. Also, I know I can edit /make pages already, that lil icons been eyeing me ominously, its just I'd rather do it after I have a profile, that way I have an identity and aren't just A FANDOM USER. Problay petty but meh.
2. As for ur future w/POP I won't quote you, whatever it takes to make you happy, you just do it:) I assume you'll still like the mod, minus Barclay. BTW is Barclay becoming French in the lore or is this Konrad's idea/design? (For anyone reading, not badmouthing him just asking a question) if its the latter then theres no reason as to why, come bannerlord, SaxonDragon's not like, "French Barclay? NOPE, back to Spain you go." And all will be good.
3. "heh, you wacky aussie ;) i like that word" - another of those comments I read and cant think of anything but to smile, thanks dude.
4. As for future communication, sweet although idk when/if I'll get steam, first email, then wikia & forums then we'll see. Besides, I'll also need to get games to play, and those aren't always cheap ;) till them is e/g mail cool? As for people being blocked I see no reason as to why I would join that list, after all I like to think I'm a swell fellow...I kinda feel like I'm bragging...I'm not, but still.
5. P.S just to make things a lil more easy, if you could, pls give me at least 12 hours before assuming a convo is done. There's an 8hr time difference between us. Most of the time I go on wikia after school, sometimes during, and only have 10hr window to communicate not including chores and stuff. To emphasise my point its 10:50 at night when I post this. So unless, I check in the next hr or two ( or can't sleep) u won't here from me for at least 10-12 hours. Good night ;)
I added numbers to your essay so thats its easier to answer, hope you dont mind it
1. Give it a go. Go to any page (from a computer preferably, not phone), and instead of clicking edit, go to the small arrow-down on its right and click "Visual Editor", that is so user-friendly. You wont find help on that as its pretty straight foward and easy. The default editor sucks (before it was the visual one the default one, but it was changed ~november last year, I cant do shit about it).
If you have an account, you can change your user preferences so that when you click edit, it shows the visual one instead (will do it for all wikis), but without an account, you gotta do it from the arrow, or use the "Classic Editor", which is more shocking at first, but has its pros and cons compared to the visual one. It does a better job at images and categories, but does worse with adding links. Both allow working with source code as well (which is the stuff that allows more advanced stuff, using html and css)
2. I havent properly played pop since 3.7063, where I did my first attempt (and won as male monarch) and on the second one, I won as female-vassal of the empire after dismissing Ursula from my party (fk claimants, they were so useless and poor-choices, now they're better, but still not worth), both gameplays were finished under 400 days, only attempted my CKO on the first one, and I had only time to give them body armor and a horse.
Why? Well, I got into wikia. Wikia doesnt track how much time Ive been here, but Steam does. 5368 hours atm, from which over 90% are for PoP, as its the only mod that got my attention to the point of going to finish it (besides Native). Then it was working and testing for 3.8 and its patches, and then 3.9, plus all the wikia testing and info I gathered. Here I only know I did over 7000 edits and added 1319 pictures (as well as some other inner stuff). And I got not a single coin for this, but I didnt do it for money, as I knew i was going to get none, but that meant I was going to stop at some point.
4. No sry, Im not keen on mailing with someone, thats obsolete af as well as hella slow, specially when we live in almost completely opposite timezones. You dont need games to make a steam account, but if you dont want to make an account there, fine by me, I've been living fine without knowing you for almost all my life, so I think i can do fine if you prefer to stay away there. Letting you know that none that added me from the wikia came in flaming me, but the more you talk with someone, the more you see and know about him, and sometimes you dont want to go further but they do, so after a warning, I had to end up blocking. Before, the more chat i did with people, the less free time i had to spend on the wikia, now its different, but because I have less free time.
5. Had to search convo, which urban dictionary told me about it x) one extra word learnt, yey! I dont mind if you're delayed answering, like nothing too important/urgent we're discussing. Remember tho that this is a public conversation, so no need to go into further detail ;)
So... now its 21.41 here, almost nighttime, should I say good night or as you'll read this in the morning, should i say good morning? Hm... i'll risk it... Good Morning fellow! (sounds odd af when I look through my window and at the time it is lol)
Firstly, totally scared the jeebies out of me, scrolling down, seeing my post with numbers, edited by you. No quotation marks, so you simply hadn't quoted me. Then i read your post :) Would you prefer if i numbered them? thats cool :)
1. Ok, thanks, now that i know how, this RUSSIAN SPY can now sabotage everything and use this as a staging ground to hack the world!!!MWAHAHAHAHAHA! YOU FELL FOR IT HOOK, LINE AND SINKER!.......just kidding lol. ill give it a crack soon;)
2. Oh ok then. Lol i've played dozens of different versions of m&b across different mods and mod versions and not once have i finished. Partly cause my ocd want all the factions to remain and then cause i always start a new one for a different "character" to RP.
4. Oh, cool cool, do you have any other, faster communication mediums or just steam and wikia? Its not that i have a problem with getting steam, just need to get off my butt. Soon i'll have a job and be able to buy games so all will be good.
"fine by me, I've been living fine without knowing you for almost all my life, so I think i can do fine" - Oof! Savage but honest, i can respect that.
if at all you feel like im no longer a swell guy to talk to "just tell me when i am no longer wanted and i promise i shall go". Honestly, id prefer not to think about those possibilities but if thats what it comes to then ok...hopefully it wont tho :)
as for not having enough free time, if you can still chat as regularly there as you can here then all should be good, of course, if this changes just let me know.
5. as for the publicity of this site, yeah after i posted i was like "Damn! i was really careless just then and kicked myself for it...my foot hurts now :)
You mean Sir Darlion of Pendor (claimant) becoming a vassal of Ravenstern. Wow, how could you do it? That's definitely a bug if it's not tweaked to be so... Although I just found this among Leonion's tweaks: "18.1. Converting ex-claimants to your kingdom (after they became vassals in another kingdom)". Seems like even he mentions that it's possible by default (since at least v3.7), while it shouldn't be the case.
It was reported and fixed on 3.9.2 (check patch notes), but it was only reported once, so you're the second that had this
Its a weird scenario, in where you support a claimant, help him all the way to eliminate a whole kingdom for him, give him that kingdom, and once he is monarch, you go on your own, and defeat him, so he will join some other kingdom
@Ralyks: thanks for the extra info (didn't notice that it was addressed before), but are you sure that the fix concludes the 5 major factions as well? Because in the patch notes, I could only see this:
"- pretenders acting as kings won't offer to join player's faction"
I've read through all 3.9.x changelog files, and couldn't find any mentions about claimants/pretenders joining one of the 5 major factions (Ravenstern in the case above).
P.S.: To the OP (Fandom User): which version did you play when the above happened?
The report that got Konrad into finding the issue was a claimant that ended in player's kingdom when he took down his kingdom.
That is caused because he is addressed like a vassal when his kingdom falls (like it happened with Marius in 3.8.4), its just on the TW report, he went to player's kingdom (not stranged, as you gather plenty of relation when helping him out in her rebellion, the rest is just having a big kingdom).
I think claimants becoming vassals after their kingdom falls is what was fixed, not just that particular interaction (that sends the vassal to player's kingdom), but im not 100% sure on that. Konrad is the one on holidays now, so I guess we gotta wait to know, as he is the only one that really knows 3.9.2
What is wrong with claimants behavior? They just do what they used to do before player put them on the thrones - looking for support. They don't join player again, as they were betrayed by him/her, but they think that other ruler may help them to defeat player and carv a bit of newly acquired land and re create kingdoms. Probably puppet kingdoms, but better then nothing.
Claimants are just as legitimate and have as much right to rule as the default kings. Especially Madame Ursula, who is the older sister of King Gregory (but the rest have good claims too). If you considered Marius Imperator joining other kingdoms as a vassal after his kingdom's defeat to be wrong (beside being a bug ofc), then why do you see claimants differently? They would die in honor or go into exile imo rather than give up their claim or humiliate themselves with lordship under another monarch... That's also why the player will have to be just a simple vassal upon working for claimants, even though he/she has to do everything. The claimants dictate all along, and don't get satisfied with anything less than becoming a ruler.
Difference between kings and claimants is that the former have own kingdoms already, both nobles and commoners know their capabilities. Kingdom is lost -> king was not good enough -> no reason to help that person -> exile as he has his chance. Claimats are unknow - would they do better then present rulers, or maybe not? Risky business, that is why is so hard for them to move forward and will welcome anyone who support them. Player doesn't meet them secretly at midnight at the end of the misty street. They are always in the throne room, next to the kings, trying to persuade them to back their cases. This time is the player, maybe next time the other ruler will be more helpful. That is why I don't see their current behaviour illogical. Change is not planned.
Hm, interesting opinion. Ok, let it be :) However, there's still a minor problem seen in the above screenshot: the claimant will keep his crown (the one worn inside castle halls) even after becoming a lord. Could that be fixed somehow? Thanks!
But sincerely, im not to keen on keep working here tbh
I left for holidays, and trying to do stuff from the phone here felt so bad and stressful i postponed it until i came back, but you know? I felt kinda free and so, and with the Barclay change now swifting from Spanish influence to French one (it couldnt be a worse one), im pissed again
I just did the key stuff, so that people can have a good read at changelogs, download the release and play it. I personally wont be changing anything from Barclay, as it triggers me, and maybe nothing else
Oh, so... In other words your time here is drawing to an end? Or just as an admin? Will you still be "part of the team"? Or totally gonna take an indefinite break from it all? YOU CANT LEAVE YET! I HAVEN'T EVEN MADE MY PROFILE YET! I'll be doing it soon, just been busy
Wait, Barclay is turning French? Your sure about this? Hm, I kinda agree with you there. I prefer the Spanish influence. Was really looking forward to those Spanish outfits with the helmets that have a full on detailed face for pop4. Is it meant to turn French? If not, it just so happens I'm a claimant to the thrown of Barclay. Together we will liberate Barclay from the tyrannical reign of...uh...who runs Barclay?
Seriously though, its great to see/talk again. Been kinda quiet here (on ur wall at least).
