Hey, i have an idea for the bow customisation, engraved wood options, tip options (different endings too the wood) handle options (leather, cloth, engraved, something else perhaps) that can be done with the short and long bow and then for the crossbow you could engrave the wooden part again and perhaps have different desings for the steel and or triggers? and perhaps a few different colors for the rope?

Great job on this, Spook!
User interface must be one of the underrated jobs in making a game.

“Homosexuality: The Mental Illness That Went Away”

By Phil Hickey October 8, 2011

Phil Hickey: “According to the American Psychiatric Association, until 1974 homosexuality was a mental illness. Freud had alluded to homosexuality numerous times in his writings, and had concluded that paranoia and homosexuality were inseparable. Other psychiatrists wrote copiously on the subject, and homosexuality was “treated” on a wide basis. There was little or no suggestion within the psychiatric community that homosexuality might be conceptualized as anything other than a mental illness that needed to be treated. And, of course, homosexuality was listed as a mental illness in DSM-II. (The DSM ­ Diagnostic and Statistical Manual ­ is the APA’s standard classification of their so-called mental disorders, and is used by many mental health workers in the USA and other countries.)

Then in 1970 gay activists protested against the APA convention in San Francisco. These scenes were repeated in 1971, and as people came out of the “closet” and felt empowered politically and socially, the APA directorate became increasingly uncomfortable with their stance. In 1973 the APA’s nomenclature task force recommended that homosexuality be declared normal. The trustees were not prepared to go that far, but they did vote to remove homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses by a vote of 13 to 0, with 2 abstentions. This decision was confirmed by a vote of the APA membership, and homosexuality was no longer listed in the seventh edition of DSM-II, which was issued in 1974.”

Things to take away:

1: Homosexuality had, throughout history, been considered a disorder for thousands of years, until recently in the early 1970s. (You can make the argument that "ancient societies" practiced it, or attempted to normalize it. To that I'd say these ancient societies never succeeded, were always the minority, and were usually very self-destructive - not something you want to emulate. Same goes for animals. Although you'd like to say that because some animals engage in homosexuality, a human is alright to as well. To that statement, I'd say you should throw around your shit and eat your children, since that's what animals do as well.)
2: Homosexuality was VOTED out being a disorder. This is very unscientific. You can't "vote" away a disorder. Disorders occur in nature regardless of how you view them.
3: The decision to "vote" homosexuality out of the DSM was influenced by violent minority of homosexual protestors who put social pressure on psychologists to change it. There was no honest discourse.
4: The result of this has empowered a numbers of LGBTQ idiots to believe that their mental illnesses should be accepted and praised by modern society.
5: Because we've failed to view a disorder as a disorder, we have allowed ourselves to degenerate as a result.

I bet someone is going to accidentally end up solving it. It also triggered my PTSD from playing the original DOOM because that game is nothing but a bunch of fucking mazes.

yep i didn't want to talk shit but it's true that the kickstarter has raised very little in the past week (compared to what it raised in the beggining) and it's kind of a shame, i hope we can at least reach the third goal. Stay positive friends, even if we don't achieve that, Mordhau is now real thanks to our support.

Good quality content, but I dislike the ADHD "fly in every word he says on the background and show cartoony pictures to represent what he's talking about" presentation. However, that presentation style is undeniably effective for gathering the lowest common denominator.

Glad that he made this!

The settings screenshot and other elements on the Kickstarter page should give you a decent idea of the look of everything, too early at this point to say anything concrete about the structure of the customization menu itself, though.

The interface as depicted on the kickstarter page is very beautiful. Well done!

If they need Med armor, How about Lamellar?

And it even comes in leather for the edgelords

Why can't we just differentiate between medium brigandine and heavy brigandine? Heavy = Brigandine with plate pieces attatched. Medium = Brigandine with maille or gambeson

@Jax said:
Most of us understand that brigandine IS plate armor essentially, but then if that was the case, what would you wear as medium tier? Mail only? There would be a huge imbalance cosmetically of tier 3 armor and it would make medium feel boring.

The way I can rationalize it is that Tier 3 / heavy armor is fully developed plate, with articulated pieces and more modern/superior craftsmanship, whereas brigandine is segmented and therefore not as protective.

"I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that"
"I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do."

You can rationalise all you like, but one can also deny reality as much as they like, but that won't change the facts.
Like the fact that I am possibly the only one here with this opinion. I realise this, but that won't make me stop.

Brigandines ARE made with modern, superior (at the time) craftmanship, they ARE fully developed (They evolved from the earlier coat of plates). Brigandines ARE very commonly seen in conjunction with plate armour of the highest quality in period artwork.

The main difference is that the fabric of a brig will be worn out easier than a purely steel armour, and it's easier to put on and off. The differences in protection are marginal at best, and only come to bear when we are talking full-on couched lance attacks, extremely heavy crossbows and muskets.

They provide outstanding protection against slashes, thrusts, bows, impact.... just as plate does.
Yes, a complete set of very late-medieval plate armour with breast & backplate will be just a tiny tad more protective, but the protection a brigandine provides is SO MUCH closer to what "full plate" provides than the level of protection mail provides.

Mail is -shite- compared to brigandine armour. That's why it shouldn't be in the same sodding category!

There have only been so many types of armour in history, sorry to say, but putting a brig into medium just for the sake of medium not being "boring" is putting something fundamentally better among shite. No. I do not support this. I cannot and will not rationalise it.

Clothes, padded armour like aketon, arming doublets, and if it MUST exist (There is no evidence it was ever used) leather armour.
Nasal helmets, lighter spangenhelm designs, skullcaps, hats etc.
Padded armour with longer sleeves, splinted greaves & arms (Popular in the 14th century), and various forms and shapes of mail on top of padding. Or underneath. Both was done.
Open bascinets, open sallets, ligher, open crusader helmets, faceplate helmets...
Full plate including brigandines, lamellar armour, renaissance armour.
Bascinets with visors, sallets with visor & gorget, close sallets, armets, possibly crusader pot helmets.

I just went to a museum and here was some of the stuff there (mix of arms and armour)

I'm also of the opinion emblematic things of the 16th-17th centuries should be severely limited or not make it into the game (gunpowder, winged hussars, habsburg pikemen etc)... specially if they originated in one singular kingdom, dutchy or principality. It's true the game is mixing elements of different periods, but something like that will outstand a tad too much.

Having said that, here are more light / medium armour elements:

the Polish Hussar unit was formed in the 1500s but didn't become a heavy cavalry unit until the late 1600s.

I don't want 100% historical accuracy but I don't want musketeers running around either, keeping it in the same era (medieval middle ages, 10th - 16th century) is fine by me.

I think grotesques could be cool as long as they're not ridiculous - a high level unlock maybe.
maybe not the feel they're going though.

I want to make a Friar class loaded with medicine bags, a mace, and dressed in monk clothing with a crucifix necklace

So are we talking about a friar of this level? Cause I would also like to be a friar.
