We've got some bad news: We have encountered a game breaking bug in all of the new towns and cities which requires us to scrap the source. We won't dance around it, we won't pretend it's not there and continue as if the mod works perfectly. It's there and we refuse to release a broken mess to you. So I imagine you're now asking yourselves "Does this mean you're abandoning the mod?", and the answer to that is: No! We intend to finish what we started.
Instead we're going to start from the bottom, and rebuild the mod completely, a lot will be cut, this is unavoidable, we will be bringing all of our scenes and resources with us, but existing features and factions will need to be rebuilt.
But this brings us to a interesting opportunity: Now that we're starting from the begining we have a blank canvas to work with, so what if we were to not only start again, but take what we have now and create an original setting. A completely new world to explore and conquer, take all of the factions we have now and put them in a new setting, with new factions, some of which we wanted to do originally but didn't fit in the existing Warband canon, some of which you guys might want to suggest.
Alternatively we can rebuild everything as it were before the restart. A little more refined and stable than it was, but still in the over all the same. At the end of the day which ever route we decide to take, know this: Things *will* get cut out, towns, characters, features even, we will still be set back by a year or more, continuing with the original idea or starting a new universe all together will still have the same cons at the end of the day, this is a hard truth, but a truth none-the-less.
Will we still be keeping all of the features we spoke about in the last developer blog? Absolutely yes will we be keeping them. Will we still keep all of the factions? Without a doubt yes, they may recieve a change of name, but we're keeping them either way. These things will remain no matter the path we choose.
For the time being we will be taking a short break to think about what we're going to do and reach a consesus. So please stand by
Thank you for reading.
