About this mod

This mod is meant to be installed after finishing the main storyline. It changes elements of world to reflect the fact that Dijkstra is the ruler of the North, due to players decisions in Reason of State quest. It changes (among other things) Nilfgaardian soldiers, flags and decorations to Redanian and removes witch hunters and pyres from Novigrad.

The idea

This is a mod I prepared, as I didn't like that my decisions didn't seem to have any impact on the state of the world. Geralt had just effectively changed the course of war and shaped the future of the Continent, yet everything was back to the state from the beginning of the game. This mod makes the world reflect the fact that Redanians won and Dijkstra is the ruler of the North.


List of changes

Wyzima:
  • nilfgaardian soldiers and courtiers were replaced by redanians and temerians
  • Keira and Lambert are there, as well as Duke - the temerian nobleman we see in White Orchard in the epilogue
  • the big, square flags are redanian, but the long rectangular flags are Temerian lilies on red field - the new sigil of temeria as part of Redanian kingdom
  • map of the continent has now unified parchment color in stead of showing the terrain controlled by each side
  • the painting of young Ciri is now replaced for Foltest, and Emhyr's painting (in the chamber that requires door unlocker mod to access) is replaced with Dijkstra's - both images from their gwent cards

Velen and White Orchard:
  • as in Wyzima, flags are a mix of redanian and red-temerian
  • soldiers are also a mix of Redanians and Temerians in modified, red uniforms (that are still distinct from redanian)
  • Barons men are replaced with regular redanian and temerian soldiers
  • some of redanian and temerian officers wear full plate armor
  • the quartermaster of army camp in the south is now Donimir of Troy - the Toussaint turney contestant
  • removed chats and scenes that didn't match anymore
  • removed most gallows and hangmans, (but not all of them)

Novigrad and Oxenfurt:
  • removed all Withhunters and scenes with them
  • removed the pyres from the main square, and replaced them with a bunch of soldiers - I have not figured out changing dialogue yet, so the officer looks like he is anouncing something, but he is silent
  • removed the smaller pyres and stocks form other places
  • Roche's hideout was taken over by a Scoia'teal commando
  • piles of books were cleared from Oxenfurt university courtyard and some students returned there
  • removed chats and scenes that didn't match anymore


Installation

This is important: This mod has no way of detecting whether or not you finished the game or what ending did you get! Whenever you put it in your mods folder, it just immediately changes stuff. You can do it at any point in the game, and it will happen. Of course the changes only make sense after you've finish the main story, so I recommend bookmarking this page and only downloading the mod when you need it.

So, yeah, it's completely 'manual' in that regard. I was thinking about automating that in some way, so that it only activates when the correct ending is reached, but I have no idea how to do it. And honestly, I don't really care enough to try to learn.


Optional file

A little modification that allows you to have Iorweth as one of the elves in former Roche's hideout. You need to install Holgar's Iorweth Mod for it to work. Without it, it will just be Roche. So it requires three files in total - Holgar's Iorweth, my Dijkstra, and my Iorweth add-on.


Issues

There are a few minor quests that get broken by the changes this mod makes:
  • there are two quests called Novigrad, Closed City that get activated after Triss escapes with mages, involving witch hunters - those hunters got deleted, so you won't be able to finish those quests with my mod installed
  • Lambert completly replaces the nilfgaardian player, so you won't be able to win the nilfgaardian's card either

You should keep in mind, that this mod changes models and textures for all purposes. So, for example, if you use a mod to give Geralt a shield,
there will be redanian shield named 'nifgaardian shield', etc. And if you use a console command to spawn nilfgaardian soldier, it will probably turn out to be a Redanian.

If you install this mod and then delete it, the map in Vizima will still show the alchemist icon on Keira's (formerly ambassador's) position
