No, actually, lorica hamata (chainmail armor) was standard for most of the ancient times, until the marian reforms in 107 BCE. Also, the oval thureos shields were more often favored by legionnaires, save for the very brief period in which the square shields were used.
Anyhow, i kinda dislike the idea of having "1st cohort legionnaire" as a unit, it sounds a bit bland.. and where are the velites? They should have tunics, javelins and wolf pelts.
Martells don't ride camels. They ride sand steeds, a breed of light brown horses which are very swift and enduring, although not very strong.
I might be speaking for myself, but despite enjoying programming, i find it simply incredibly boring to watch someone else do it.
There is no greater pride for a programmer than to lose against your own AI!!
I bet that the modders have not bothered to make proper LoD-models.
About this, it is really simple programming-wise to just attach garrisoned units onto the deck. Just make attachment points on the trireme model, and then add the unit models to them - only if they are infantry ofcourse. They don't have to fight, it would just look nice if they could stand there so that you can see how many units are onboard.
I love you so much.
Inspired by Eve Online much?? ;)
I just want to add that i am currently working on a hotfix for WiF fixing stuff like paratrooper balance, japanese paras being unable to banzai, issues with shared control, issues with strategic bombers being unable to bomb on water, italian troops battling neutrals on map start, and a bunch of other things. It will be released in the coming week.
Is there anything you're NOT doing for this game??? You are just too awesome to be true.
WORD!! Halo 2 is where ALL the actual canon is created. It is where we first find out ANY information about how things look on earth or within the covenant (Prophets! Admiral Hood!), ALL vessels except Halcyons and CSS-Cruisers are first featured here, it takes place on an immense diversity of worlds, and you get to play the F*KIN ARBITER!!
Stationary guns is fine, the unpredictability of random maps was propably my greatest concern with this, but as i see you have already replied to this it seems we won't be having any trouble. I know very well the problems of coding a system like this, because i once did one for wc3. The biggest issue then was related to movement - i had to make the soldiers snap to the wheels while they were pushing the cannon, and them getting killed, knocked back or otherwise interrupted could cause some conflict and needed lots of checks.
In any how, i was thinking your artillery crews were looking a bit small, hence me asking. I would suggest at least 6 men for each cannon.
OOOOOHHH MYYYYY GOOOOODDD!!! Words cannot describe the awesomeness of this. How will they move? Do the artillerymen push them, or do you have horse carriages somehow? Or are they stationary? And how many men do you have as spare crew for each cannon? If one gets killed by a stray bullet, as they often do, it mustn't make the cannon useless because of lacking crewmen. Regardless, keep up the good work!
There were generally no real uniforms at this period, both when it came to armors and banners. The only things that were consistent within the clans were the general design of the mon, and even then there were variants. However, the only clan known to have had a uniform color pattern was the Oda clan, who prefered to dress their ashigaru in black armor with lemon clothing. So considering this, i would suggest you use these colors for the Oda banner.
Well, the Tiger could kill an average of 9 T-34's each, but so what? In the time it took to create 1 tiger tank, you could create 20 T-34's. The Tigers engine was prone to break down or even catch fire, and shifting gear could sometimes require the use of a sledgehammer. It would get stuck in terrain that the T-34 could cruise across. It's weak roof armor made it equally suspectible to air attacks. The T-34 was perhaps not the best tank in one-on-one combat, but it was by far the most effective. If you want to compare the T-34 to a german tank of equal class, compare it to the Pzkpfw IV. There you will find it excels.
Docm30, if you read this, PLEASE tell me that you will include "commander battle" for multiplayer like in NW? It's basically 200 bots distributed over 2 teams where each player commands one type of regiment of their choosing (with bot number weighted by class of troop, ofc) and then they command it just like you do in regular m&b campaign. It should also be possible to include artillery regiments too, where only the player himself controls the cannon. If you do this, i will easily switch NW for L'Aigle!
Can you please desaturate the colors on the textures just a little bit? Especially the red and yellow tones need to be desaturated, and maybe darkened a bit. Everything just looks too colorful right now, some colors almost get a neon glow to them which feels very inappropriate for a medieval age game.
Voted for this as MOTY! NOW FINISH IT DAMN YOU!!
Dunno what you guys are talking about. I got a 2.3ghz quad-core computer, 4gb RAM, 2gb graphics card, i run the game smoothly at an even FPS. I got medium textures and all settings on except AO, reflections and texture streaming. FPS is around 30, which i admit is about half of what is standard, but to be fair you could never tell the difference if it was 60 (video cameras record at 24 fps).
One thing i find strange though, is that when i spectate (with the camera chasing other players, before spawn), the fps is at 60, but once i spawn, it goes down to 30 again. Maybe it's something about the UI?
Why eat lembas when you can have some nice stale Cram!
Being short is pretty much the definition of a carbine :P
I just can't wait for this!!!
Add videos! I want to see how well you nailed the animations!
So glad that someone finally picks up where Battlefield 1942 left off. Seriously, way too few ww2 games have been featuring both infantry, tank and airplane warfare like this.
I just seriously hope you ad naval battles too, where you can send in different types of ships and have players man their guns, too!
That... ouch. Just ouch.
Nice to see you are still working on this mod.
Looks good, except.. the textures have no detail whatsoever. It looks like you just slapped on some grey/brown/black colors onto the models - if anything, you would want to improve the graphics from the original game? because the bar is not set that very high.
Well, swedes tend to have that attitude about their own language.
Kinda like an italian M3 Grant :)
