About this mod

Various ways to improve combat, all customizable!

Permissions and credits
This mod provides lots of ways to improve combat in Bannerlord. It does not direct change how combat works but how much you can engage in it. I personally don't like how average my character feels. Some could argue that is the point of the game :) but I want to be like the main characters in all the movies, cutting down hundreds of enemies with ease. Everything is customizable so you can adjust it to your liking to make the game easier or harder if you want.  

  • Configurable passive health regeneration for player (fully customizable).
  • Configurable percent life-steal for player (fully customizable).
  • Provides the player with bandages to use during the battle (customizable key).
  • Gives control over base health of player and troops (campaign only)
  • Configure health increase for player and troops (several options)
  • Configure multi hit all weapons or just one/two handed ones
  • Configure player knockdown and the ability to shrug off blows
  • Configurable healing limit, once reached all healing will stop.
  • Slice through enemies (all or player only)
  • Campaign regen multiplier
  • Prevent troops from retreating (configurable percent chance)

Installation & Updating
  1. Download the mod
  2. Copy the mod folder into your Bannerlord Modules folder.
  3. Unblock all dll’s under mod folder.
  4. (Optional) If not using MCM, configure the mod via the config.xml.

For updating please delete the mod folder and follow the installation process again.

Configuration is done in game via Mod Configuration Menu or directly via config.xml to keep requirements down. Make sure to adjust your config, all values are disabled by default (vanilla settings).

If you are using MCM your config is located at "...\Users\...\Documents\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord\Configs\ModSettings\Global". This is used and modified directly by MCM and you don't need to make changes to this file directly.

If you are not using MCM the config file is generated after you first launch the game with the mod enabled. It will then generate a config located at "...\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Modules\BetterCombat\config.xml". Please note this config file is not used or created if MCM is active.

To translate, navigate to the mod folder then locate the sdt_bc_strings_xml.xml in the ModuleData folder. (Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Modules\BetterCombat\ModuleData\Languages\std_bc_strings_xm.xml) Update this file with your language translations and start the game. You can send me your translations and I'll included them in the distribution for easy of use (or upload your own).

Please note that Bannerlord only support 3-4 languages by default, if you wish to use a language other than the defaults you will need to enabled developer mode (or so I have read, I have never tested it).

Is it save game compatible?
Should be able to add or remove (or change configs) at any time during a save. Always backup your saves before attempting just in case.

Future Plans
  • Add more combat related features.
  • Possibly make bandages something you have to buy.
  • Feel free to make more suggestions.
