About this mod

An update/revival of Lazeras' Kaoses Party Sizes. Allows +/- of party sizes and troop limits for various party types, including bandits and custom spawns.

I'm not the creator of this mod, but I'm keeping it going until Lazeras returns to take it over again, if he/she chooses.

An update/revival of Lazeras' excellent mod: Kaoses Party Sizes.

Converted from ModLib to MCMv4 to allow for it to run under the new updates (1.5.3+), and updated some logic to Harmony to reduce crashes when base game models are updated. 

I am NOT the mod's original author, and I don't take credit for any of the original work. I'm just someone keeping it going until/if Lazeras returns to take it over again.

From the Original Mod:

Allows you to set the party limits on a modular basis. It will allow you have different sized bandit parties base on type, as well as AI party sizes on a per faction basis, also can set different limits for the following minor parties peasants, outlaws and mercenaries. Basic support for custom spawns mod parties added via key word cs_

Party templates that are loaded by the game are modified by the specified multipliers if enabled, for more details please read further down. The mod should work for new and existing games and be fine to remove from save games.

The bandits include separate modifiers for Boss parties separate from the standard parties.

  • The current range for modifiers are from 0.1 to 10 (Values below 1.0 reducing troop limits and values above it increasing troop limits)
  • Modify party speed modifiers for various party types (These include player, kingdom AI, all bandits , caravans, elite caravans and villagers)
  • Speed can be modified from -3.5 to 3.5. (Positive numbers increase party speed while negative decrease their speed; Minimum speed for any party is 1.0)
