The scope of this mod has greatly increased thanks to some amazing people.

The mod is intended to eventually be themed on Ancient Calradia.
The mod takes place years after the Calradoi Tribe's arrival in Calradia, they're already a fledging empire that has carved out a large part of the land. Witness the rise of an empire, or help burn it to the ground.

Empire: The Calradoi Empire - Themed on Rome
Vlandia: The Palaic Tribes - the original inhabitants of Calradia - themed on Gaul
Battania: The Battanii - palaic tribes that broke away and went to the mountains to fight off the Calradii invaders. The are the cold / hard cousins of the Palaic. Not yet fully implemented. Semi-themed on Dacia
Khuzait: Likely to be split into two kingdoms eventually - one will be based loosely on a generic Hellenic state - referred to as Laconia in in-game lore. Our plans are to give them a Hellenic aesthetic but likely be styled like Bactria. If we're able, we'd like to also introduce a scythian style faction.

Obviously, we're not aiming to be 100% accurate, but we'll do what we can.

More assets will be phased in over time, and existing assets will be improved!

Followed Istallation Instruction:



INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Upon download and unzip, you should have two modules: !CA_LoadAboveNative_Rome and CA_EagleRising.
  2. Drag these two modules to the Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Modules folder
  3.  !CA_LoadAboveNative_Rome should be loaded above native modules. This means, it needs to be higher up in the load order than the base Bannerlord modules.
  4. The CA_EagleRising module should be loaded somewhere below the native modules. 
  5. Enable the module(s), and enjoy. If installing manually without vortex, follow the step below.

IF INSTALLING MANUALLY:
You will need to perform this extra step:
  • Unblock DLL files
  1. DLL files will need to be unblocked if installing manually by going to the CA_EagleRising\bin\Win64_Shipping_Client, right clicking the DLL file, go to properties and press Unblock. If it is not there, it is already unblocked.

HOW TO UPDATE:
  • Download new version
  • Unzip new version
  • Delete existing old   !CA_LoadAboveNative_Rome and CA_EagleRising folders
  • Move new *CA* Import and CA_EagleRising folders to your modules folder

LOAD ORDER EXAMPLE:
*CA* Important - Load At Top Above Native - Rome

COMPATIBILITY:

  • This mod is compatible with any mod that does not alter the Empire cultures or kingdom.
  • Please make sure you are using the correct mod version for the correct Bannerlord version. 
  • If you're on Bannerlord 1.5.6, you should use CA - Eagle Rising - BL 1.5.6
  • If you're on Bannerlord 1.5.7, you should use CA - Eagle Rising - BL 1.5.7
  • Realistic Combat Mod - The AI module should be fine, but the combat module will make the empire much too weak. Later we can create a compatibility patch and buff the armors to match RCM.

CUSTOM BATTLES:
  • Custom troops cannot be used in Custom Battle. If you want to do this, you need a seperate mod.
  • If you want to use the troops in Custom Battle - download Enhancted Battle Test. Do not report issues for this mod here.

TROOP ID's:
  • If you want the troop ID's, they can be found in CA_EagleRising > Module Data > Empire_Troops.xml

POSSIBLE ISSUES:
  • Prices might seem cheap compared to vanilla counter parts - I know but I wanted them to actually appear in shops. Let's pretend Roman indrusty allows for mass production of better equipment? Leave suggestions for realistic costs in the comments.
  • This also ties in with rarity - for the most part, I allowed BL to decide the prices. For some stuff, I put a manual price as I didn't want it to cost 300k and never appear. Please let me know your feedback on pricing and rarity of items.
  • More variety is needed, elites need better equipments, etc - we know, we're working on it.

TROUBLE SHOOTING:
  • Please note that this is a very simple mod, and not likely to be responsible for one of your CTD's. I can also confirm it works without issues. Please check your other mods and load order.
  • If you are 100% your other mods are fine and the load order is good, try downloading manually and installing.

Much of our assets are purchased, I would not steal them due to the legal consequences of doing so. It is sad that I even have to mention this.
