Gentlemen!

I hope your Easter holidays were memorable and that you are well rested!

Today, I would like to show you another planned edition to the future version of this mod.

General's bodyguard in the most recent playable version of the mod is equal in strength and numbers to any other light dragoon unit featured in RoAR. I decided that this shall be the case no longer!

In addition to reworked visuals, the unit will :

  • consist of fewer men;
  • tougher in defensive melee action;
  • and armed with pistols.

Men entrusted with guarding the Commander's life will also be armed and trained to fire pistols mounted and on the move to increase tactical flexibility of the unit.

This preview should give you a taste of the core mechanic described above. It features British General's Bodyguard unit armed with pistols pouring lead into the 3rd Continental light dragoons troop before engaging in melee.

This is still in the works and requires tweaking to ensure the mechanic works smoothly under different circumstances.

Here is the video preview and screenshots of the mechanic in action:

Hello,

I was wondering whether you could tell me what the .pack files in the mod actually did. Because I appear to have encountered what seems like a possible mod collision, and so I would appreciate it if you told me what the files did so I could see if this mod was the issue.

Thanks.

Hey there and sorry for coming back to you so late!
OK, so you have RoAR_V2_main.pack, which contains most land units models and database entries for the entire mod. RoAR_Cav_V2.pack contains cavalry models. KV_rules_mod_5.pack governs custom combat metrics such as projectile trajectories, effectiveness of volleys based on distance and effect of various factors on unit morale. AI mod 3.pack is a mod that slightly modifies the behaviour of AI on the battlefield as well as default spacing between units. AR mod_unit LOCfile_6.pack is the file that contains unit names for the regiments in the mod and all the ETW. The remaining packs are sub-mods that add animations etc. If you are getting conflicting mods, it is likely the LOC file, KV_rules or AI mod files.

I would love to create custom battle maps. However, it will take some time and will likely be released after V3. Hopefully, a custom campaign will keep you busy long enough :)

Oh, I have got one slight problem. The unit names don't show up in battle, is there a way to fix this?

That's a common issue, sadly.

Make sure that you have the .loc file that comes with the mod placed into the data folder. It contains all the unit names.

If that's in place and the problem persists, verify the integrity of game cache and check again.

Final option is to make clean re-install of both ETW and the mod.

Some, if not the best unit skins for ETW. Cured me of my pathological aversion to tricorn hats - and that's quite an achievement.
