About this mod

Adds the ability to Recruit Minor Clan Troops as mercenaries. They act like existing mercenaries and refresh every day. I found it silly that the only way to access these troops was through prisoner recruitment.

Version 1.1.2 works for 1.5.2 and 1.5.3 beta
Uses MCM 4+ (Mod Configuration Menu)

Adds the ability to Recruit Minor Clan Troops as mercenaries. They act like existing mercenaries and refresh every day. I found it silly that the only way to access these troops was through prisoner recruitment. So this is an alternative.

Is existing save compatible and can be removed at any time during your play though.

Features:

Ability recruit Minor Clans either inside of the tavern or from the town's tavern game menu.
On new campaign start or campaign load the clan mercenaries will be populated in every town.
Adds ability to hire from the town gamemenu screen before entering tavern.
Recruit to your party limit or recruit pass it. Enables recruiting past it for the regular mercenaries as well.
Customize the troops you would like to spawn with custom files.

Creating your own list of Available Mercs:
Inside of the mod's ModuleData folder are 4 json files that can be customized.
Although suggested to only edit "CustomA", "CustomB", and "CustomC".
These custom files are json format. Check out the wiki page here for info about creating your own or navigating the custom warnings.
When Updating Versions after 1.1.0 Save copies of your edited json files outside of the module folder. Then paste them back into the moduledata folder.


Installation:

- Extract the zip file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Modules
- Navigate to "Modules > MinorClanTroopRecruitment> bin > Win64_Shipping_Client" in your game files.
- Right Click the "MinorClanTroopRecruitment.dll" and click properties
- Should see a unblock button at the bottom, unblock it
- Start the Bannerlord launcher and then tick MinorClanTroopRecruitment in the Singleplayer > Mods tab.

Known Issues:
- Wanderers can spawn in one of the mercenary spawn locations (work around is to exist the tavern and reenter or use town game menu). No Crash occurs
- Trying to talk (via town talk option) to a wanderer who gets set to spawn inside the tavern at one of the locations which mercenaries are occupying will crash game (would very much like a stack trace of this). This should be fixed as now the mod's mercenary spawns in a regular townfolk spot.
