Hello all, it's been quite a while since I posted but I've got something I'd like to get ask everyone's opinion on.
I've been playing a Bordeleaux campaign (ME) with the Alberic Lord of the Sea and the Unique Bretonnian Lords mods. I have to say I've had a blast! Both of these mods really make Alberic's campaign feel very unique and running about the Dukedom's crushing vampires is a lot of fun, thought the The Dreadfleet is a real pain.
The only true grievance I've had with the campaign is the ridiculously low amount of units you're allowed to recruit. It's not possible to even recruit a full stack in the first 20 turns without going over the penalty limit and taking the hit to your economy. Admittedly, the hit isn't all that great when you're only a unit or two over, and Alberic makes lots of money from trade, but I can't see the sense in restricting the player from recruiting some of the most expendable units in the game.
This is really more of a problem when playing as Louen, as his economy isn't nearly as strong, even when occupying Marienburg. Even when playing as Alberic, only being able to recruit 1 full stack, while still being penalized is a little ridiculous.
If anyone knows of an up to date mod that fixes this minor annoyance I would appreciate a mention, otherwise I would like to know what you guys and gals think.
I think the Bretonnian campaigns can be fun, but they can also be quite the slog, especially with the Vampire Coast now in play. Would you like to see an increase to the peasant limit? Maybe through tech or building trees? Also, I know the garrisons are much maligned as being the worst, and I would agree, but what suggestion would you have to fix them?
