Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, a strategy action role-playing video game, developed & published by TaleWorlds Entertainment.
Now a renowned modder of the video game, who goes by the name of Bloc, has integrated powerful AI into the game, using the ChatGPT & Text to speech Ai features of Inword AI to create a realistic domain.
Well, the mod is named Inworld Caldria, which lets players have a conversation with NPCs of all ranks and statuses, i.e., nobles to lords, etc., and all these NPCs have their lead-ups and characteristics.
Players talking to the NPCs can lead to unique interactions, and the players can use prompts and enjoy realistic responses to the queries, so this mod turns the game into an immersive experience that adds emotions to the NPCs that are present in the Caldria.
“Through your expert conversational skills, you’ll unlock secrets and learn about hidden ambitions & plots. With the ability to chat with villagers and townfolks, you can gain valuable insights into the daily lives of the people in Caldria“, mentions Bloc with reference to the mod.
Furthermore, interactions with the intelligent NPCs can also amplify how players play Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord.
Learning about it becomes a delight and a very true and cheerful experience, as good NCPs with good knowledge can tell the players secret rumors.
For example – Getting different answers from every interaction adds to the overall appeal of the game, which was already pretty detailed from the get-go.
As per the Bloc, the nobles made by the game are based on their in-game characters. Also, the nobles remember many details; for instance, they know who they are, how old they are, and who is their father, mother, brother, sister, and children, if any.
Moreover, they know what clan they are in and, what other clans exist in their faction, different war/peace statuses with other factions.
This isn’t all; the significant nobles also remember the rulers of other factions, different cultures, stories, and pasts with their characters, players’ relationships with their families, and more.
The nobles will create new background stories with playthroughs, and the Ai that has been incorporated will keep track of everything for each NPC.
In addition to this, There’s no lag while interacting with the AI-powered NPCs via prompts, and the responses are pretty instant.
With that being said, the original system is still in place, although there are some,e restrictions made by the modder for the villagers to make sure of a smoother experience
“For townfolks & villagers, the system is a little different; unlike the nobles players cannot talk with the same personality twice in this version. This is, unfortunately, a limitation I had to put thousands of villager generation and causing a mess in your account and in the Inworld account“.
The Mod is free for anyone who wants to use it from the Nexus mods forums, and the modder has also provided an installation guide via video & instructions to follow. The mod has received a positive response from the community as well.
