If you want a more simplistic version of this without some key changes, look at this one:
Crynsos' Faction Unlocker Basic.

Want to customize the available Factions? Here's how to!

You WILL require at least one of the mods from this collection to properly use this one, depending on which factions you want to play in Single Player. All factions will be available for Multiplayer no matter which one you pick. You can freely mix and match them or even make your own selection! (How to make your own faction selection...)

Hello everyone, you may know me from my Faction Unlockers or the various other mods I made.

You may also know popular full overhaul / rebalance mods such as Steel Faith Overhaul, Radious and so on, which mainly focus on unit rebalance and juggling numbers around.

This overhaul is very different, as it focuses mainly on modifying the map and the factions on it to provide a better vanilla experience, extends the things modders can do and combines the aspects of several highly popular mods that normally can't be used together.

Alltogether this mod is designed to provide a great close-to-vanilla platform to improve modding capabilities for others and build mod your own mod collections around.

This overhaul will get continuously updated and extended with various new and interesting improvements that stay close to the vanilla experience and thus remain highly mod compatible.

Give this mod a thumbs up if you like it!

Thanks to Beornvig for his help with lore-accurate faction refining such as unique faction & faction leader traits, starting units and descriptions.
Thanks to Cataph for his help with various things, such as new feature ideas, lore-accurate faction and lord effects, descriptions and much more.
Thanks to Dindi for his help with Norsca & Chaos script fixes.

This mod won't work alongside other mods that need to modify startpos.esf to work as intended.
These are mainly mods that modify information about how the campaign map is populated with settlements, lords, armies and so on at the start of a campaign.

Why does this Mod exist?

@ Crynsos, Oh and another thing. Since I installed this mod my "Blood Dragon Lord" from JDHarrow'S "Al Tabletop LOrds" mod has Isabella's face. Krell from the "Legendary Heroes 2.0" mod from Scravey has the same problem.
Would be great if you could look into that at some point :D

Dear Crynsos, I am completely amazed at the number and detail of legendary lords you added to the different factions :D
I'm using Ash's 33 new skills mod and wated to ask you if you could contact him and make the two compatible.
Your lords are amazing and with these skills the player has more possibilities to develop unique strategies and army setups.

Anyway, thanks for keeping up the great work and allowing me to enjoy this game so much!

Ich hasse Jun 25 @ 7:23pm

@00 I don´t know man, might be one of the other mods I was using but I had mainly SFO + Crynsos unlockers + lots of graphic and camera stuff, and I could not see all the units that were supposed to be available.

@ilearril I'm 99% sure that SFO is compatible with this mod as long as you get the Legendary Lord submod as this mod has Unique LL Start Pos integrated

Hello, nice mod, but I have one small issue. I want to use Balthasar Gelt in my playthrough as the empire, but another mod I want to use requires Faction Unlocker+ to function so I can't use the basic version.

What files do I have to change to put him back? It's such a convoluted mess; I don't know how you modders make sense of it all lol
ilearril Jun 24 @ 8:01pm 
Hi Crynsos I am confused. This mod is the one to use with SFO right? Or are the units / lords you´ve added not compatible with it?
