Update?
« on: May 12, 2018, 01:49:18 am »
I think it’s safe to say that everyone that still remains in North South, conducting events and leading regiments, are really wanting an update. Especially since Napoleonic Wars just recently got an update. As the North South Communities struggle to get a sliver of attendance (North Americans especially), a small update that just enables some of the newer features in NW would really come a long way.

Some of the various leaders in North and South have spoken with Hinkel, the main developer of North and South, the response is none. I myself have sent a message to Hinkel to update the mod. Expressing to him that doing so will result in bigger advertisement for War of Rights, and giving a hand to the communities that have remained here (Dixieland Army, Confederate States Army, and Union Brigade). But I have been ignored as well.

This isn’t throwing shade at Hinkel. Whom I know is extremely busy with War of Rights. But I know that various developers from several mods are happy just to do an update North and South. To continue its progress. To give some sort of relief to the people who haven’t jumped ship for Holdfast, War of Rights, or Post Scriptum. I know that eventually Warband will die until Bannerlord comes out (whenever that is), or Battle Cry of Freedom, but hosting events with an average of 50 to 100 people isn’t a relief.

I'm posting this to bring some sort of awareness to this mod. Or perhaps some attention to it. For the people that remained, would certainly be happy to have some sort of new content.

I would love to hear out some people’s opinion on it

I have a patch pretty much ready since end of 2016.
The other Devs wanted to add stuff aswell, so I was told to wait.
This mod is not mine, and I cant publish the patch without permission.
If the DA leaders want a patch and Hinkel gives me green light, I can either
- Publish the old patch
or
- In my next free time, mid of august, come together with the officers of the DA and make a wishlist and then make a new patch out of the old patch.

However, this needs approval of Hinkel, as I wont update the Mod against his will.

You see, this is a lifeline we have been needing for such a long time. I'm sure Hinkel wouldn't mind doing it if it's already made. I have already have a list. I know the DA has one, but if you can't recall, the NAs broke off from the DA and now we are the CSA. So the regiments I have, all have ideas on what to improve of. I can add you on steam and tell you. But this is such good news!

I did not know, that the DA split up. In case of a new patch, we would of course take them on board aswell.

Coming from a guy on the outside, I think updates should be regular and necessary, especially with the new NW stuff!

Hey guys,

I recieved your requests and messages, but I am really busy with some bad real-life stuff.
So I did not want to ignore your requests or upset you.

I do like the idea to make a new patch and like Kanade said, we have a patch "ready" since 2016, but we never finished it or combined all made parts (I even have a nearly complate Alamo mod ready since early 2017 with Texans, Mexicans, Native Americans and such).

I don't know how much time it would need, to add the new source code parts and features into the chaotic NaS source code, since its based on the source code of the very first release version of NW.

I will get in touch with Kanade and Parrot, maybe there could be a final version of North and South soon or later this year. But I don't know, how much stuff I am able to bring into this patch, due to real-life and War of Rights.

Cheers,
Hinkel

I was thinking if adding new musket stances would be possible (like order arms, shoulder shift arms etc...), though it would be useless, it would look cool  :) maybe adding a new regiment or two, maybe borrowing community made ones

Just a few new changes. Adding the new NW update features would be nice on the admin aspect. But new regiments, new community maps, bug issues (not a few anyways)...just something to by the time until War of Rights, Bannerlord, Battle Cry of Freedom...something finishes.

It would be very nice to at least have the new Nap Wars features in the mod. It's gonna be a while before any of the new games like this come out, so we might as well keep NaS alive & well, and give a reason for Nap Wars players to try this mod out again.
You may all find it to be a refreshing change to the usual European conflict.  :)

What harm would it cause to release the already made patch? Have that be the grounds for releasing more mature update.
