How can you keep your formation?
My guys arent charging in rank or shieldwall formation and they break ranks every time.
Beisdes that, they dont hold their fire, when I said that. I would like to let the enemy get close, before they use their pilum.. but that doesnt work
When your men are say in square or rank formation (Infantry formation) hold fire doesn't work its not a problem with this mod , I don't use formations like line , rank , square or cavalry formation they are all buggy instead tell your men via f1-f5 keys to stand closer that formation is the best. Its also good if you have multiple Cohorts in that case separate every cohort into a group (I prefer to call them Cohor I,II,III...) at the start of battle tell your men via f1-f5 keys to "stand closer" 3 times then via backspace menu command them independently 2 Cohors advance 2 Cohors provide support on the Flank 1 in reserve and so on Works pretty well for me I can take on Barbarians when outnumbered 5:1 and still win just by using superior tactics. Yes when you tell your men to charge they break any formation they are in, unless you have no formation and just have them "stand closer".
thank you verys much,
but how can you devide your 100 same starting troops in different cohors? You can just choose Infantry, Archer, Cavalry troop type for all 100 of them..
Well you start with one cohort but you can train more later, thats kind of the point. You start as a lower rank cohort commander and eventually build an army , I use 6 different Cohorts at the moment 50 men each battle size 600 its pretty nice
I can actually give the player 5 different cohorts at the start but I thought it would be too much and too easy.Oh and one more thing since your troops automatically go into formation at the start of battle press f4,f8 first to disassemble the formation then use f1-f5 keys , I want too remove formations all together actually unless they are fixed and are less buggy .
