About this mod

With this mod, you don't need horses to upgrade infantry troops to cavalries. Just like in Warband.

Permissions and credits
Actually this is not an actual mod, I just edited spnpccharacters.xml file and removed the horse requirements. You can do it yourself, it's too easy.

Alternative Version

With alternative version, cavalry units still don't require horses, but they are one tier higher, so their upgrade costs and wages will be higher as well. For example if a tier 2 unit can be upgraded to either cavalry or infantry, cavalry one will be tier 4, infantry will be tier 3. This version is less cheaty than the original.


This is my first modification, I don't know how to make it Vortex compatible, sorry, you should install manually.

Just extract the contents to your Bannerlord folder -->C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord


If any other mod changes the spnpccharacters.xml, this mod will rewrite the file, so they will not be compatible. If such a mod, handled by Vortex mod manager, my changes will be ignored by the game.


I tested, it just works.
