A mod with medieval firearms (around years 1420 - 1470)?
« on: January 03, 2012, 07:24:04 PM »
Does anyone know of a mod thats adds primitve firearms to native?
or can anyone make one?

Firearms could include:
- bombards for sieges
- handgonnes (handcannons)
- hackbuts mounted on castle walls

I understand that adding such things could tip the balance of gameplay, so there must be some disadvantages too;
- It would take up 2 slots - the gonne and a belt with powder bottle and shot with enough for 10 shots say (Large bags would be avalable)
- troops with such weapons could only be found in taverns as they were very specialised many people didnt like the new weapons
- these troops would be expensive as would the powder and shot
- slow reload (speeds up with higher skill level or proficency?)
- a small chance of blowing up in battle dealing a small amount of damage to you and those close to you

Advantages
- In large numbers could have a demoralising effect on the enemy
- A very long range and accurate up to 30m
- huge penetrative power, making plate armour near useless
- the gonnes themselfs are cheap as they are simple to make
Thanks for reading - post responses and ideas please i want to hear them  :)

There is no mod like that in this sub-forum.  Try checking out the Eagle and the Radiant Cross mod.  The time period is a tad bit later than the one you are describing (16th-17th century, I believe).  Those exact features are not in the mod, but it is still fun, none the less.

You could say that he finds hungarian tanks riveting.

I am not familiar with that mod, so you will have to ask the devs there.  Sorry about making it inconvenient, but they probably know more about their mod rather than us.  Sorry!
