I think you're still waking up, as I also had another question. Please don't misinterpret this as me being rude, I just want answers to my questions. Also, the AI doesn't automatically raise their shields when they get fired upon I think. I've seen a large force with shields running against my pure archer/gunner army and refusing to raise their shields. Also on the shield thingy, what I was thinking was that they would NEVER lower their shields while the command is up, even when right in front of the enemy. Sorry if I'm annoying with asking it over and over again, but this mod is so pure awesome that I want it now!
