Im having black squares issue, similar situation i guessCan you provide screenshots and info about your computer specs as well?
I checked back and noticed this thread went onto 6 pages...mind blowing lmaoI am sorry. You guys are f*ckin brainlets. The links to Joe Gibs's video and to Tod Workshop armour penetration test are the most valid test done I have seen. You weebs tell a dude who has been making historically accurate bows for over 10 years and shooting them. You can literally google Joe Gibbs and see the guys draw a 210 lbs bow once and saying its ultra-hard and would probably be a few shots a day max. Whilst he says, he would be able to shoot a 150lbs bow in a battle for an extended period of time. If any of you armchair idiots actually pulled anything above 80-100 with your upper back muscles ONCE in your life you would definitely agree with the man. First of all, retards go and actually try out things IRL because that is what experimental archaeology is about. And actually watch reliable sources, not wanna be LARPers like Skallagrim or Thegn ****. Tod's Workshop even uploaded a video about bolt penetration versus soft and flexible body armour ( gambeson, padding, mail ). The amount of bull **** you guys spew is mind-numbing.
Well I guess if the romans existed then sticking to tight formations even post-charge would make sense but until that mod is created, charging IN formation then scattering after is rather realistic.I've played countless hours of total war games.
Cavalry charging and regrouping is a necessary micromanagement strategy which results in a lot of broken morale, and very quickly.
In Bannerlord; it results in lost formation, scattering, and lost units... it still needs a hell of a lot of work putting into it.
Oh, I know, but then re-issuing the charge command leads them to pursue the nearest unit. Which in the scale of a large battle, is usually some infantry unit running away, which results in like 6 horses chasing after one fleeing soldier, instead of charging full on into an infantry assembled line formation... or into the archers to prevent them from raining **** on your troops.
Oh an also - constantly getting your troops to stop fighting and follow you, can result in unnecessary troop losses, since their priority is to follow you, and not engage... So really, it just isn't that effective at all.
Bannerlord have smarter AI. Especially battle AI. I was positively surprised since I expected just repackaged Warband.
Warband AI did not have formations and everything charged strait at you in one big blob.
Another large improvement is how AI uses ranged units, especially ranged cavalry.
that why i use advance and then charge.I just had another "situation" which should fit here. So I felt like cleaning up some of the bandits and looter around my castle (they are everywhere at some point in the campaign it seems, different topic).
Since it were only 9 bandits I obviously just gave the charge command to my entire army. 3 Companions on horse back, about 35 Valandian cav which at least 20 of them were "Banner Knights" on the highest tier. I was riding along somwhere in the back of my cav. Now here is the thing, one of these bandits stood there getting two arrows into me. I didn`t pay much attention to the whole thing but it made me thinking, how on earth is there a bandit standing with all the time in the world bothered by nobody after I charged almost 40 cav units towards them? From what I can tell everybody dead but another bandit to my left which just got killed at that moment and this guy just standing there shooting his bow.
