Native Expansion v0.601b Release Notes.

Bug Fixes:
  • Numerous bows had 'cutting' damage type assigned instead of 'piercing'. This has been fixed. Affected bows: Hunting Bow, Shortbow, Ashwood Hunting Bow, Nomad Bow, Ashwood Short Bow, Yew Hunting Bow, Strong Bow, Elmwood Nomad Bow, Yew Shortbow, Ash Strong Bow, Yew Strong Bow
  • Some bows had the wrong modbits set, potentially resulting in the wrong modifiers. This has been fixed. Affected bows: Strongbow, Ash Strong Bow, Yew Strong Bow
  • Numerous pieces of armor had incorrect modbits set, potentially resulting on the wrong modifiers. This has been fixed.
Troop and Difficulty Changes:
  • Added Power Draw +2, Short Bows and Bodkin Arrows to Scarred, Ruthless, Mountain and Forest Bandits - beware
  • Added Horse Archery +2 to Mountain Bandits
  • Added Stones to Farmers
  • Added Stones, Nomad Bows and Bodkin Arrows to the Brigand troop, used in quests such as Troublesome Bandits
Item changes:
  • First wave of the item rebalance has been completed. All Headgear, Gloves, Boots and Armor have been made internally consistent, following a linear tiered structure for cost, defensive value and required skill. Most individual items saw very little change, though a few radical items were brought in to meet the new guidelines. The biggest change is that nearly all armors now have Strength requirements, and an armor's weight is now based on the defense it provides. Expect to need a little bit more strength than before to don the heaviest gears, though you will also find the lower gears to be much more balanced.

Downloading and Installing Native Expansion.

You can find all currently active links to download Native Expansion mod and it's major add-ons and patches in the first post of this thread. Each post after the first one contains the release notes for a new version of Native Expansion or a critical patch. Players are recommended to subscribe to this thread to automatically receive new release notifications.

Native Expansion 0.610b2.

This is the latest official release of Native Expansion. Requires Warband engine version 1.153 or later.

Download both the Native Expansion v0.610b and the latest patch. Install them to your Warband's Modules folder. The resulting path should look like:
  • C:\Program Files\Mount&Blade Warband\Modules\Native Expansion [BETA] for Warband installation on 32bit Windows.
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Mount&Blade Warband\Modules\Native Expansion [BETA] for Warband installation on 64bit Windows.
  • C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount&Blade Warband\Modules\Native Expansion [BETA] for Steam Warband installation on 32bit Windows.
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount&Blade Warband\Modules\Native Expansion [BETA] for Steam Warband installation on 64bit Windows.
Note that you may need administrative permissions to install any mods to Program Files or Program Files (x86) folders. Protection provided by Windows to installed applications may be quite paranoid, but turning it off may open your computer to infections. Because of this it is recommended to install Warband to a different folder entirely, for example C:\Games.

Development team recommendations.
  • Native Expansion Siege Scenes Pack improves all battle scenes, adding a second ladder to many of them, making sieges more tactical and detailed. It is a recommended add-on to Native Expansion mod. The pack is available from a 3rd party site as zip archive (7.4Mb file size). You can visit the Siege Scenes Pack forum thread for more information about the pack.

  • soulmata's personal recommendation is the Battle Size Changer tool, allowing you to modify your singleplayer battle size in a far wider range than the standard slider in the game settings. With this tool, you can get battles with up to 1000 participants - assuming your computer can handle this, of course.
Other Downloads.

Download links to previous versions of Native Expansion, both for Warband and Mount&Blade, can be found under the spoiler tag.
