--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi, people! This is the Extended Encyclopedia, a project that brings more info to the Encyclopedia of the UnrealWorld and its Finnish culture keeping the realistic approach of the authors.

This project started as a support of the Brygun and Community (BAC) mod, in which the Extended Encyclopedia adds entries for the new lifestyles the mod brings, in a way to illustrate and help give a nice an easy understanding of the complex processes of smithing, weaving, boat building, etc, in an entertaining way. But it doesn't end there! This was extended to add information to the existing things of the UnrealWorld. Creating new articles for missing things like habitats, plants, and more.

To keep it simple, the Encyclopedia is a big proyect that I have in mind. A cultural and popular tool for the game that doesn't only provides useful information, but a funny way of learning the old ways of living.
I said cultural because I intend to attach cultural approaches to the articles of the things you do in the UnrealWorld; and popular because I compile existing information, will investigate to write proper information, and will be open to feedback from the comunity. These last taks interweave with the knowledge that have been already done by the people of the past.

It is divided in two main categories and one minor. I) BAC entries, to explain the new objects and processes; II) Native entries, to add new entries or complement existing ones; III) The addition of images (with the historical-realistic approach) for the sake of complement the info.

If you wonder where do I get the info for the moment is just from encyclopedias, dictionaries, wikipedia, the BAC text files (for the BAC entries), and the game's wiki. For the future improvements I will do an academic research that includes reading proper Finnish literature and linguistic studies, because three of the main objectives (you can read it in detail in the files) are: 1) proper cultural information; 2) mythology; 3) Finnish linguistics.

The current version (1.0.0), can be considered the main structure, its foundations and blueprints of the proyect. It covers the main things of the BAC mod and some interesting entries for the UrW, although a lot of work is pending. I am currently working for the next updates.
I will kept it updated and compatible to the latest version of UrW and BAC. For now it's compatible with UrW v3.62 and BAC v076b.

You can read the full info of the project in the Readme and Index files.

Any comments and suggestion will be gladly welcome. You can do it here or send me a PM, I am open to talk.  ;D

Thanks to all the creators of UrW, the BAC, and everyone.

Modding / Desire for more
« on: August 01, 2019, 04:00:10 AM »
This maybe will sound silly, but is something that urges and haunts me constantly.

Abstract: How can we mod the core?

Let me explain myself...

I am a huge fan of roguelike games, and some other similars to the genre. Every time I play a game that I really get deep into it I look up for mods, just for fun or sometimes to get that feeling of "fresh".

Take for example Mount and Blade. This classic and awesome game that has so many releases and also a vast comunity who makes mods and minor-changes to the entire 'history' behind the game. One of those mods, 'Brytenwalda', was so popular that eventually came to an official release of the developers (TaleWorlds): 'Mount and Blade Viking Conquest'.

Now, my question. Why isn't that kind of mods that change the whole world (NPC's, history, quests, code, etc) in our beloved UnReal World? Is it possible to mod the game to the extent that we can, for example, create a survival-adventure epic of the Nibelungenlied, or the Iliad?

I am a very basic progammer, my knowledge is very limited, but I have the dream to eventually make a mod that offers another history with the support of the Core of UnRealworld that I love so much.

To sum up: Is it possibly to get acces to the kernel of UnReal World and create a whole new 'World'? Change the parameters, the values and so on?

Thanks for reading,

Ezezaguna.
