    Hey Psen,

    If it is about editing all of the texts to fit female characters, I definitely would not mind helping out for free.

    Hi Leery,
    thanks a lot for the offer. We wil definitely keep an eye on the whole battle sisters issue, but at the moment we are completely absorbed by the launch of the game. The earliest possibility for the sisters to appear would be the first expansion to be honest.
    We will see what the future holds.

    I have the random question for you about goblin archer camouflage…Did you were inspired to create them by german ww2 zeltbahn camouflage ?

    Not exactly, but I played a lot of WW2 games, so its easily possible that I saw it somewhere and got influenced without even being aware of that :)
    Now that I think about it, It actually may have been the snipers coat in one of the Silent Storm games, but I cant finde the example right now…

    Speaking of legendaries, are they intended to not fulfill named-item-ambition/steam-achievement?
    got the emperors head as only special item, nothing though

    There is only an achievement for defeating the Black Obelisk battle, not for obtaining a legendary item. If you defeated the obelisk and didnt get an achievement, thats a bug.

    How can we get battle brothers save screens ?

    Not sure what you mean exactly…the retirement screens?

    It’s so fun to mess around with BB assets!

    This looks pretty creepy, reminds me of “the thing”

    Hello Psen
    Nice to see you back here.
    There is two things that keep bothering me and can be probably fixed fast if someone look into them.
    One is armored wiedergangers walking in new shiny mail coif and basic mail shirt. Its just look plain wrong. The rest of zombie like undead all come with their dirty armor which look great(especially Fallen Heroes sets)and then some zombie come with this shiny Mail Coif. Its look out of the place. Simple change to their equipped items and replacing it with Rusty Mail Coif should fix it.
    Other things is statistics of Basic Mail Shirt and Worn Mail Shirt. They both have the same Armor value (110) but Worn Mail Shirt is lighter 10 fatigue cost vs 12.
    I understood that Worn Mail Shirt is degraded version of Mail Shirt(130 armor, 14 fatigue cost).
    Thing is Worn Mail Shirt is better and free(looted form raiders) version of paid armor. Simply swapping values for Basic Mail Shirt and Worn Mail Shirt would fix it as Worn Mail Shirt still would be lighter than Mail Shirt like description suggest but would have worse armor to fatigue ratio than brand new Basic Mail Shirt(removing it from riders drop table would also could make players to spend money to buy some early armors instead of looting it entirely).
    Hope its not a big problem.
    Cheers for release soon.

    Hey Sarissofoi,
    thanks for the comments.
    Regarding the worn mail that’s something i noticed while playing too, good work pointing it out again, it somehow slipped our attention. We will change that.
    Regarding the zombies it’s a little bit tricky as they use exactly the same assets the brothers use. We use some dirt and blood layers on top to make them look more worn out. The Fallen heroes for example have their own unique armors, that’s why they look so old and rotten.
    I will see if we can work a little bit better with the dirt layers, especially the shiny mail parts tend to stand out.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for reply Psen.
    Glad that I could help.
    Simplest way would be just to remove Mail Coif and Basic Mail Shirt from armored Wiedergangers equipment. Their other equipment is fine – its look fitting.
    Just that this two things look more new and shiny that they should – on dirty undead at last. They are perfectly fine on bounty hunters, other mercenaries or faction troops.

    Hey Paul, will there be legendary weapons in the game? Or only armors? Just wondering.

    sorry for my English in advance.
    from the first minute of the game to battle brothers, I realized that this is an incredibly promising and interesting project. I enjoyed watching his development with version 6.19 . I would like to Express my gratitude for this delightful game and to turn to you , Paul. now that the game mechanics introduced all future project entirely depends on you. after 150 hours of play it becomes obvious that the game world needs to expand. this is understandable as the fact that the ass is a hole. now battle brothers have dark atmosphere ,but it is not deep black as in the world of warhammer . it’s dim and bleak. players are not worried tolkl because the gameplay is stretched and stretches very slowly, but after passing 150 or 200 days it becomes clear how small the game world. so the future of this world lies with you , Paul. or you can make it rich and play great , or things remain as they are and after last year the fans get bored endlessly killing same monsters same weapons getting dents on the same armor. Thank you!

    Hey Lassefin,
    unfortunately we only have the 4 armor pieces and one accessory. On the other hand we already thought we would not be able to get in any legendaries at all, so its still better than nothing. Just see them as a little bonus, not an actual element of gameplay.

    but after passing 150 or 200 days it becomes clear how small the game world.

    Hey varhagen,
    thanks for the support and dont worry about the language, we are no native speakers either.
    Regarding your comments, the whole game is designed to “end” after 140-160 days when you survive the greater evil. We just added the option to keep on playing. we cannot provide content and balancing for 300 days or 500 or 1000. And even if we had the whole game designed to last 1000 days, there will be people asking to expand it further, because they want to play 2000 days :)
    We cannot deliver that.

    What we can do is expand the basic game with additional DLCs or something like that. We will now continue to give technical support to the game while I finish the Artbook and we talk about our next steps.
    We will surely let you guys know whats up in the next devblogs.

    Cheers!

    realy hope you expand BattleBrothers in future… there is soooo much potential left…!!!

    did you ever thought about something similar to a “content pass” system .. like an EarlyAccess DLC ?? ..
    I think you have the trust of your community… for every upfront money. I would buy it instantly!! :)

    I would definitely pay for a DLC that adds more legendary items to the game, please Paul!

    Hehe, actually I havent thought about something like that yet.
    On the other hand I think that whatever we produce next will also have an extensive “beta” or “early access” phase. This helped us so much in refining the game both design and bug wise.

    We’ll have a discussion meeting today about the next steps. As you know, lunch time is crunch time hehe.

    By the way, as I am working on the artbook right now, let me know if there are any art related topics you are specifically interested in, I might go into some more detail there.

    Cheers!

    Nice! Do you mind going into some detail about the historical artwork and time period that inspired the arms and armour in the game?

    hi Psen
    I am currently doing 12 Viking role play, but the Viking style equipment is a little short of type.
    For example, horn helmets and round shields (unique designs) and head bands (showing the hairstyle and beards while protecting the head! Wonderful). With these, I am very happy.

    I am using a translation site. Forgive me if I am wrong.
