PS
Why the mention of "Battlegrounds"?
We can only hope to be as successful as the only American Revolutionary Mod for HL/HL2.

Battlegrounds is based in the Revolutionary war, idiot.

Thanks for the comments.
The main title "Age of Muskets" is intended to cover wide range of possible 18th/19th century themed games, when soldier fought with swords and muskets. While the Civil War saw the wide use of rifled weapons, they still had smooth bore muskets and even the rifled long arms could be called "rifled musket" - hence the title "Age of Muskets American Civil War"

We plan on focusing on challenging multiplayer combat and while the game will feature Civil War weapons, we plan on making the weapons more gameplay friendly with quicker reloading and less weapon malfuctions. The idea is to have fun and challenging team combat set in Civil War era.

Thanks

you obviously haven't played battlegrounds (well at least you haven't played the second one because i don't know anything about the first one). in battlegrounds (btw it is a revolutionary war game) , everyone has muskets or primitive rifles that take about 10 seconds to reload. plus the musket balls tend to "fall" because of gravity. so having the highground is always an advantage (even if it isn't that high). so whenever you do hit someone, there is so much joy in it. but mostly ppl are thrusting each other with bayonets and slashing each other with swords. you can even man cannons which act like grenades on impact. at first it can be intimidating and it is hard to grasp the gameplay. but once you have it down, it is so addicting. hopefully this civil war game will have a simiilar affect.
