Change of ground troops to sailors and how to recruit privateers and sailors recruits (cabin boys).

Posted by on

I was trying to change the troops to sailors for naval battles (with the help of an Austrian expert), which was impossible to assign the corresponding team, so we did it by changing their elements (uniforms and weapons), but the troops are still the ones they had on land, but they are dressed according to level, as follows:In photo 1 you can see what type of unit or troop they will be (example of the Chilean faction), but as you can see, there is more than one type of troop, for example huasos on horseback and volunteers from Santiago, the huasos are cavalry and They respond to number 3 to select them and volunteers to number 1 since they are infantry, the same happens with the others. There are 5 types of troops, infantry (n ° 1), riflemen (n ° 2), cavalry (n ° 3 ), grenadiers (n ° 5) and hunters (n ° 6), numbers 4, 7 and 8 are left free if you wish to change their name (corresponding to militia, dragons and hussars), since they do not have any sound assigned. The 9 corresponds to artillerymen, but I used it in the troops fixed in the historical battle of Maipú, which they should not modify.

M a r i n o s = sailor

If you press this button without ALT, it will take you to the troop updates window, no matter if they are bandits, pirates, mercenaries or soldiers of a faction, in that window you can see all the updates that remain until the last rank for example a caravan guard (photo 6), although there are exceptions ...

To differentiate Spanish sailors from patriots, photos 4 and 5 show a bit what they are like (since they have more variants of uniforms), most of the patriots wear blue and white sashes and neckerchiefs and the realists red and brown. Only faction soldiers change their uniforms to sailors.

Finally, you can also recruit Corsairs in the ports of the towns speaking with the Captain of corsairs and cabin boys directly in the ports of the Forts speaking with the Frigate Captain.
