For a simpler version of this mod look at my Faction Unlocker Basic.

Pre-Norsca save games will not work with this version, use this one instead!

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. For Multiplayer, all factions will be available no matter which one you pick.
Want to customize the available Factions? Here's how to!

About this Mod
This mod aims to create a Vanilla Enhanced experience, with a focus on campaign level improvements that should not conflict with classic Overhauls like Steel Faith or Radious. To maximize the game's replayability, it unlocks all factions available in the game and adds a few missing ones.

It also combines the functionality of some other mods which improved specific aspects of the campaign, but were incompatible with each other.

The final major advantage that this mod provides is to be a platform to enable other modders to create fully customized Legendary Lords out of the vanilla Faction Leaders and also customize Settlements as much as possible, which many modders are using to create new types of mods.

I will continue to improve this project and try to break the limits of what modders can do as much as possible, so if you want to be a part of this project, then feel free to enjoy what I managed to create so far and please report all bugs you may find!

Chaos Coop (+1 Chaos Faction lead by Sarthorael, Optional)

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?

Подписаться на этот мод, потом как и написано в описании для тупых нажимает на ссылку "this collection". Выбираем нужные фракции. При запуске игры в лаунчере нажимает на модификации, чтобы игра добавила их к себе и запускаем. Профит. :story:

@Nightmare799 & Mordred that's a good solution but annoying. I figured out where the continue button was by hitting back, then to start the campaign, I realized there's a small click-box in between the two faction cards in the UI where you interact with and click the continue button, although I think there's too many factions to display them all at the same time anyway so you may not be able to have them all active all at once
