Changelogs
The goal of this mod is to add, for all the factions in the game, T6 troops.
With the presence in the Vanilla game of some noble troop tree, T7 units will be added to them.
Sturgia has a little more for the moment, with a female troop tree that leads to the T7 troop.

The troops are used by the NPC lords in their army.

Please see the Compatibility note at the end

Compatibility
While this mod is only adding troops, I need to use vanilla troops to makes my units upgrade from them.
For maximum compatibility, I'm only using the <skills> and <upgrade_targets> properties on the vanilla unit, meaning I'm not altering their face and equipement.

Compatibility with other mods :
• Mods that redesign the factions troops are not compatible, but they can be if you're editing their XML.
Mod authors making the redesign type of mod are using new IDs for their troops since it's the only meaningful way of changing the equipements on the vanilla units. If you want to make my mod compatible with theirs, you have to manually add in the <upgrade_target> of their troops the ID for my units.
Be sure to post in the comment section what type of mod you're using, and I'll see if I can release a compatility patch.

• Mods that redesign NPCs are sometimes also editing the vanilla troops.
These mods are currently not compatible with mine :
https://www.nexusmods.com/mountandblade2bannerlord/mods/288
https://www.nexusmods.com/mountandblade2bannerlord/mods/194

Mixed Gender Troops have been reported to be compatible with my mod by other users. Since it's crashing my game, I can't answer any question on it.

• Mods that add/modify equipements or names on the vanilla units are compatible with mine (except if they create new IDs for their units, in that case it's like the redesign type of mods)

• NPC Revamp is compatible.

• Unit Stat Fixes is compatible, but be sure to put my mod below/after it in your load order.

• Frugal Cavalry crash the game when upgrading a mounted unit that requires a horse.

• BanditsToNobleTroops is compatible

Note :
this mod is now save compatible. I will never delete any troop that are actually present.
But do mind that if you remove the mod and load a save with my custom troops on it, you will crash when the game will try to load the troop information (like in the party screen).
Always backup your save before using any mods.

And to be honest, with the game in early access, you will crash and/or encounter bugs during your playtime. Even without mods !

The reason :
Ever since I played Pendor, the vanilla game always feel like the endgame content for the troops was lacking.
The Noble troop tree and the Knight Orders really add something to the game.
With this mode, I hope to recreate some of this feeling, with some good, but not too much overpowered, troops.

And to be honest, modding bannerlord is really easy and fun, so why not doing it ?

This is my first mod. I playtested it, but you can found some bug with the troop upgrade.

Thanks for the mod author of Royal Guards that gave me the Idea.
Thanks for all the talented peoples working on the Prophesy of Pendor mod for Warband.
And thank you for your attention.

I hope you'll have fun.
