    Sure.
    You need to unpack data, find lone wolf scenario file, hack it, change variable, then made mod from it.

    How many you want in reserve?

    I am very flattered that you'd think I could do any such thing but I am a complete imbecile when it comes to anything but actually playing the game. Could you be an absolute lad and do me a favour (if its not too much to ask), if I were to send you the custom scenario mod I ve got running?
    p.s. I think regularly there are 6 or 8 men in reserve? but I'd be fine with 4 even, for events and archer rotation.

    A thousand thanks, O Broest of Bros, may your champions spawn with two famed items each time!
    It doesnt work for a scenario i am running right now though, this one (the half-giant) : https://www.nexusmods.com/battlebrothers/mods/265
    Any chance you could wiz it the way so that I'd have 16 men in this one here as well?
    p.s. Mind if I'll post that lone wolf limit removal on Reddit (with attribution of course)? People are asking for a mod like this quite often.

    Did the goblin city, and my archer had 150ish dmg, while the two handgonne/throwers had 1000 and 700ish. They all have 100ish RA, archer has a named bow.
    Fast shot had mostly <60% CTH (couldn't trigger LW), while the guns had >90%. Obviously the bow got unlucky rolls but still the gap is huge.

    Haven't found the witch hut yet, maybe I'll miss my usual bow backline there.

    Vs single beasts/opponents you take out the throwing weapons, they do more damage than bows.

    Unzip the mod, open the scenario file in text editor (it will be in scenarios folder) and change this line
    to whatever you want. Zip it back up and that's it. You can also make some other trival adjustments if you want, most of it is pretty self explanatory even if you never seen program code in your life.

    As for bows, I also started doubting their usefulness as of late, did they increase RDEF on everything in some patch? I remember hitchances being better but maybe I'm wrong.
    I build my archers as hybrids anyway, but they never seem to do much with their bows against anything that's not goblins or bandits, which get steamrolled after you gear up anyway.

    How do I open a cnut file with a text editor? tried opening it with wordpad or notepad and it gives out some mumbo-jumbo corrupted text :/

    Enemy archers (especially at night) feel like free kills. Four archers might be lucky to land a single hit on your bros across the entire fight.

    Ranged is entirely for tricking the AI into advancing into your positioning.

    http://www.adammil.net/blog/v133_Battle_Brothers_mod_kit.html

    bbros.zip, there is 'massdecompile.bat' file in the /bin folder.

    REM This simple batch file recursively decrypts and decompiles all .cnut files in a directory.
    REM To use it, run the batch file from the directory containing bbsq.exe and nutcracker.exe,
    REM and give the directory to process as a parameter on the command line.
    REM E.g. massdecompile C:\users\me\desktop\scripts

    And the scripts folder is the one for your specific mod, that you want to change, I think.
    I dont konw if you need to recompile the scripts again or if the game will pick em up in plaintext.

    Also, your mod is practically cheating. 15% hp regen? Da fuck you need more than 12 men for?
    You can go Nimble and borderline solo the game...

    Havent bows always been niche?

    In random stories:
    Pick a 2.5k goblin killing contract just to look what the game is gonna throw at me.
    Moving to target city over mountiains, no road there, see 15 gobos, save just in case. I have like two level 7 bros.
    They have a shaman, terrain spawned is absolute shit, I get stuck by the shaman and pellted to death by archers.
    Reload and try to pull em to plain terrain but I am too slow, fug. Its daylight and my last save is like 3 days out.
    Alreayd replayed it thrice...

    You need to use the mod kit to decrypt and decompile the game's .cnut files, that said every mod I've seen comes in decompiled form (I guess mod hooks takes care of loading them or the game doesn't care), so you should be able to edit it in notepad no problem (they are .nut files not .cnut).

    I had only 1 ranged guy at level 5, that wasnt happening. I didnt even have throwables.
    Though if the swordmaster has that bad of rdef, than its a nifty tictac.

    Look at me, I am the King now!

    The game seems to randomize barb king abilities. This King had no Adrenaline, and could not attack me a single time lel. Well, he punched lol. I love the disarm ability.
    I love barb king contracts now! I remember form back in the day, they had reavers and shit. Its day 46 and he is around with thralls...

    Finally got a tournament and ran into an relatively easy final match, then the regular match afterwards had one of those swordmaster champions who promptly diced everyone, killed a 600ish BF bro in a turn.

    Throwing is my most effective guy in the arena, pmuch nobody has RDef.

    Yeah, lost 5 dogs and a decent man. I pulled their melee into the center with my barb king outfitted guy, who would just stand there. He has the most mdef. Shieldwall and pray. Gobos often do retarded shit like use "Footwork" to rotate twice...
    Backliners switched to vsRanged shields and highest acc weaps. Archer went with shield and javs.
    The most mentally challenging part is when the shaman lands his AOE roots, you have to really plan who tries to break free, who tries to free ally and when - so that you get to act.
    Eg the bros who are behind are better off tyring to free allies infront, who wait (rememeber how I said that "waiting" dropping initiative is moronic? here is a great example)
    Also reloadfest to get a decent mountain for me. One time I had only 2 tiles approach to the gobos and long ways around. That was insta reload.
    Basically not worth the 2.5k

    Damn Nimble made me wtf, I hit a basically naked merc archer with a 2h hammer for 130 armor damage and he is alive. I actually mumbled 'da fuck'
    And then I hit him again for 29 hp damage and crushed his finger lul. Nimble after the change and before the nerf must have been something...

    > imagine fighting 17 alps


    9k for this, 55 a day. Would you pay it at day 50? He comes with a great axe.
    Good mdef, ok fat.
    For 4k I'd pay the price. But 9 is too fucking juicy. Great axe is not that interesting, its gonna drop at some point and I have 2h hammers already. And his 70 hp or 90 with Colossus is not that great with BatlForged...
    All my money would be gone, its too much for day 50...
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    if he had 2 stars in fat, i would bite the bullet
