Hello and Welcome to the ModDB page for Pike & Shotte, a modification for Mount & Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars
Looks very nice.
Also, are pikemen and musketeers separate regiments? I thought they formed up in a way that every other row of men held pikes, and the rest held muskets.
Yes, they are separated (im talking about commander battle). It would be difficult to command both pike and shot at the same time. Also players will have to learn to cooperate. If there are enough players, it would be ideal to have two shots and one pike per "company". So you would have one player using pikemen and the other two using musketeers
So what spacing would each commander need to allow in order for pike-men and musketeers to merge together easily rather than create a large cluster?
I dont know if I understood your question right ^-^
But all you will have to do is basically just spam F4 F7 (if I remember correctly) and then form five rows.
Considering it would be really hard to create a formation and preserve it, the best option would be to follow the nearest pikemen, in case you have musketeers, for example.
Here is an article I did discussing tactics:
Basically, the pikemen would be massed in the centre with a block of musketeers on the left and right flanks.
That was so damn cool
Although this might seem cool, won't it be annoying to have the drummers always lagging behind?
You will have to advance slowly. I know it sounds boring but thats how it worked back then.
