11.April.2011: Version 0.1 uploaded for testing of basic economic functions

Version 0.7 isn't savegame compatible and the next version may not be compatible with savegames from 0.7, so be warned.

The whole Mod is based on Waihtis Diplomacy Mod and Caba'drins Pre-Battle Orders & Deployment, which can be found here.

After reading the following Thread by Konrad von Richtmark "Link" i was fascinated by the industrial things allready implemented into the game, that could also be used more. So i decided to try modding Warband and see what comes out of it. First i started with some great OSP projects from the community, that seemed usefull. Later i wroth my own Scripts.

The goal of this mod is to give the players the possibility to build up a trade empire, with buildable manufactures in the city's, buyable land in the villages, your own caravans and so on.
Cause you need consumers, a population system has been implemented, with 3 classes of people (Worker, Merchant and Rich), with different demands. Every city and village produces it's own goods, based on location and culture.

This is an early Version, which was uploaded to make some tests and that's the point where i need your help.
I don't have the time to run the game for multiple in game days (months- years) and test if the economy is stable in the long run. So I'm going to ask if you could help me with that.

"Real" Capitalism and Population:
Every city and village has a number of inhabitants. These are in one of 3 classes.
Every class needs different tradegoods to be happy, for example rich people need velvet and poor are happy with woolcloths.
Every city and village produces goods based on it's industries. Curaw for example produces lots of Tools, when it has enough iron from the mines in the surrounding villages.
Prices are moving according to the present stock in a city/village, if there is enough food for more than 30 cycles (1 cycle atm 8hours), then prices will start to drop, else they will rise.
You are able to purchase more than 1 Enterprise per City.
You are able to buy a Kontor in every City and to buy and sell things there automatically.
NPC expand there city's and villages with there own manufactures, but are also closing enterprises that create no profit.
Your are able to send out caravans into far away lands to obtain spices, from Tulga.

Trading NPCs:
Villagers, Caravans and Sea traders exchange items between city's, only if they can make a profit with it.
Cause of that, Fees from Caravans can be altered from Native.

Plundering and Murdering:
You are now able to plunder, burn down or massacre a village. These options won't change the loot gathered from the village, but will influence the economy in the surounding area for different timespans.

You can go on a hunt and kill boars, goats and other animals to collect meat, leather and furs.

City Council
Every city has a council with the following positions:
Guild Master:
- gives quest and informations regarding the city
Master Builder:
- allows you to construct, buy and sell buildings in the town
- allows you to upgrade the wells, the market, the port and other structures in town
- allows you to convert to his religion (3 differen religions)
- confess your sins and
- recruit special religious troops
- gives quests
Guard Captain:
- allows you to improve the walls and baracks of a city
- you are able to recruit city guard troops
- borrow and lend money, alternativ to the bank
Dungeon Master:
- will buy your prisoners
Spy Master
- will sell you informatons
- maybe more :-)

Real Character System
Now NPCs have characters, they like you or not based on your character, your religion and your actions.
It will also influence theyr behavior.

Planned Features
Advanced Trade:
- buying tradeships and caravans
- explore "new lands" behind the see and trade with them
- more complex production lines (coal from wood with a charcoalkiln or an coalmine, jewellery made of gold and pearls)

Population grow and movements, so when people don't like a city they go to another.
People becoming City Guards, so if you are low on troops and a big army stands in front of your city, you can force people into the ranks of the defenders.

Plundering and Murdering:
More Options when you raid villages or conquer city's, that have an influence on the population and industries there.
- burning down the fields
- killing all cattle/sheep
- decimate populace
- and so on

Possible future features i'm thinking about

These are the things i'm thinking about to implement, but where i'm not sure, mostly cause of balancing problems, time, effort or lack of skill.
- reinforcements for army's are coming from city's and villages of the lords/faction - so you can weaken an enemy faction by killing it's people
- integration into diplomacy, so if all villages are burnt, all cows are dead and the population flees in horror, a king will accept peace
- a new council member that allows you to manage your industries
- more custom battlefield around ruins or other things (like the bridge battles)
- redesign of some city's to integrate the bank and other buildings (harbour, kontor...)
- npc guilds as opponent traders
- random events like diseases or fires that influence people and land
- piracy
- city right, give a city the right to govern itself or other rights
- ways to sink money - city feasts, gambling, prostitutes and so on
- assassins, hireable to kill/weaken npcs, poison wells or doing other nasty things

Savegame Compatibility:
- none

Known Bugs
- errors in dialog with guild master/village elder, when building or buying things
- sea raider ships spawning on the land
- player will not morph into ship, when he got captured on the sea and gets free

All added features are more or less functional and the latest version from the forums and other sources, so this is a fully playable mod. Some of the menu's have some unsorted new options that maybe lock ugly, but are functional too.

I like that idea.If you would edit more items that are more expensive -that would be awesome and some advanced kingdom or settlement managament. Like building or regulating many things in city or something like that. Good luck :)

There is a short manual in the Forum Tread, maybe this could help you.

Most of the things can be done by talking to the village elder or the guild master in the citys.

Hope these tips help a little.

And increase expanses for troops and other because inn few days i was millionare...

Tryed the wine thing, seams to work, can you explain what you did?
What did the small number at the bottom show in front of the buttons that regulate the amont you sell/buy?

About the inventory size, i plan to introduce pack mules and transport horses that increase the size.

I'm also thinking about increasing them, but also working on other ideas of thinks where you can spend your money at. (Give money to the church, other city improvements and so on)

Beautiful , but I found the Rhodoks very difficult to defeat especially when using Sarranid troops .
I joined the sarranids and we can't win any thing against Rhodoks .
Some faction's troop balance is needed .
