So Hispania 1200 is finally released! Before you start playing, is good that you know these important points to improve your experience.
You can also read this information in the game, with paragraphs of notes on Economy, Morale, etc.
In order to play Hispania 1200 is convenient to know the following points:
SEA TRAVEL: The sea travel is only possible on the Mediterranean coast. To embark, stay the closest you can to the sea, then camp and select the option 'Embark', remember that only works on the Mediterranean coast. If you are sailing and you want to land, click on any near settlement to disembark.
BATTLE: In battles, the AI will change formations depending on the composition of your army. You can do six different formations by pressing F9, F10 and F11. Each one of this keys has two formations. If you press the key once, formation A will be selected, and if you press the key one more time, formation B will be selected. To confirm the formation, press F8. After pressing F8, your army will mobilize to make the selected formation. If you press F8 once, your units will stay with that formation, and if you press F8 one more time, they'll follow you using the selected formation. Warning: If you press the normal keys to follow or hold, your troops will get desorganized. Also, if your army is in formation and you want to move your chivalry (for example), selecting it will not dissolve the formation. This doesn't work on sieges.
If you press 'I' while in battle, a bar will appear on the top-left corner, showing the number of soldiers on each side.
If a leader is defeated in battle, the moral of the army will decrease.
RECRUITMENT: In Hispania 1200, excluding mercenaries, there are three tipes of recruitment.
Villages- in villages, you can recruit peones, the most basic infantry in the armies. The number of possible recruits will depend of the relation between the player and the village.
Cities- in cities, you can recruit militians, more expensive than peones, but better trained and equipped. The number of possible recruits will depend of the relation between the player and the city.
Castles- in castles, you can recruit chivalry, the most expensive troops, but also the better ones in pitched battles. The number of possible recruits will depend of the relation between the player and the owner of the castle.
If you press 'N' when your mount is near, it will come to you.
If you press 'M', you will make a battle cry.
It's possible to bet in taverns, but only once every 6 hours.
If you are a king you can talk to any gentleman of the game and your minister, for it camping, click on 'Take up an action' and see the action. This simulates the ability to send letters of kings activity performed almost daily."
