More Than 8 Players on a Kingmaker Match - Workarounds

Recommended Posts

So 1 thing i always liked in something in AOM was more than the standard 8 players allowed, that being 12, its a nice thing but very rarely games implement such a feature, and this series even ending up lowering the total player count.

One workaround is actually creating a War Custom map, there are 10 coloured shields you can put, of which 9 are AI, allowing you to have a very quiet but still a 10 player match, although you are limited to 9 Campaing AI, so you cannot have Queen and Bishop there. Plus you can only have 3 teams and neutrals, so Allies and 2 enemy teams.

Though another interesting thing you can have is have 16 territories with all being AI controlled, normally you can't have multiple castles of same AI but if you first make them villages, paint over a certain shield, then place over Castle flags, you have now just made castle territories. 15 Olafs is not a pretty sight [ill put an image, you can only see 4 but trust me there are 15]. The problem with this is that technically this is all 1 AI, so if you take out 1 all will become Castle Estates under your control. This does not work with players, you will just get another estate with another Lord spawned but you cannot build any structures like Barracks or walls, while still taking your resources.

One workaround i thought was to give some AI only 1 additional clone, so if one dies only 2 estates get turned over rather than over, so it would be a 8 player match with adittional castle each [which is very weird]

Sadly Kingmaker is an issue, you cannot add more than 7 AI, and the game crashes if you Dice roll the game crashes if there is but 1 more Castle flag on the map. Ive tried some workarounds like praying to Jesus, MP match with MP AI mod, and not much else i could think off. I do not expect that game could actually handle more than 10 UNIQUE colours [i mean there should be only 10 Campaing colours, and black and white i presume] but if there was a way to SOMEHOW allow the game to do this, we could have 10 or 12 player games, maybe even 16, with all the AI rather than just being restricted to max 8 players or having only 9 campaing AI in War Custom.

I am really wondering if there is anything that can be done to prevent that Kingmaker crash on dice rolls, even just that would be cool.

    • Can I Have a Huge Favour to Ask? S.Crusader2 Players)

      I absolutely love Stronghold Crusader 2 (though I spent my childhood playing Original Crusader). I have a hard time purchasing stuff on Steam, one time I made a purchase and way too much money was sucked in. I Purchased SC2 on GOG and have been playing it with my friends for months and months. I downloaded some custom 10 maps from external website and they work really great, but just recently I discovered all the fantastic maps that I can find on Steam Workshop but I have no access to them... 😞

    • Is it Possible to Mod No Pop Cap for Kingmaker?

      In general, I'm trying to make a mod which removes the pop cap from kingmaker to make it more like the campaign with larger battles. Additionally, I'm reading that it's impossible to mod unit stats in Stronghold 2. Is that true?

    • An Ally's Retreat - New Kingmaker Map

      I've worked on this map for about 4 hours in total and I have to say I am very pleased with the outcome.?   My aim was to make an unbalanced yet fair map. Each estate has its own advantages and teamwork is vital to your success. There are also 3 estates south of the map that will be very useful when it comes to controlling the play of the game.?   I've submitted the map and it is awaiting verification.   Enjoy some screenshots!

    • Villages and AI lords in my new kingmaker map don't build woodcutters

      Hi, guys. I hope you'll be able to help me. I've made this new kingmaker map. It's a map I had in my mind for a while, and I found some time to make it.   Unfortunately, what makes me very sad right now is the fact that those villages and AI lords don't build woodcutters. Has any of you had this issue before? I have no idea what could it be. If that could help, I could send my map to some of you to have a closer look.   For this reason villages don't develop - they just build a granary, few hous
