  1. Siege AI Idea

    I'm by no means a programmer, but I had an idea regarding siege AI that I think could simplify how the AI interact with ladders and siege towers. Basically, the way it is right now, AI will constantly interfere with one another when attempting to climb, leading to far fewer troops making it up...
  2. Suggestion: Braced Formation Command

    I suggest adding a braced or planted formation command, that would enable spear formations to brace their spears against the ground in an anti-cavalry charge spear wall. Such formations should be devastating against charging cavalry units. Especially if the braced formation could be combined...

    More formations

    IMHO adding more formations would add more depth to the strategy in battle. In the mod I'm playing now I have legionaries, praetorians, auxiliary and others all together. 😕 Anyway, even in the vanilla it would add more fun and realism to game. In particular, I'd add at least 3-4 different...

    Need More Info Army formation keeps changing into a different formation.

    When ever I use the line or, in particular, loose formation, instead of staying is that long 2-3 file line, my troops will always move into a box shaped formation, making archers in particular mostly useless as most don't have a line of fire anymore.

    Formations in Captain mode in relations to speed

    This is how the formations speeds should be in relation to each other from slowest to quickest: Shield Infantry 7. Square- This formation involves the units being tightly together and turned in different directions. 6. Circle- This formation also involves the units to be turned into...

    Add custom formation token (9 and 0 key)

    Hi, I'd like to have a custom formation key, for example to create my own followers in battle. For example, using keys 9 or 0 to assign any type or soldier or partu member in this formation. Best regards Bdk

    Explanation on how the different unit formation groupings affect the AI?

    Does anybody have a list of how different formations(unit groupings 1 -8 ) react to all the orders? there is a difference in how infantry or archers react to "charge" or "advance". with "advance" being preferable. Is there also a difference in AI behavior for groupings 5 to 8? (heavy...
  8. Advancing in a Shield Formation

    To start, I very much enjoy that my troops will prefer to sit behind a friendly troop with a shield when they themselves have a shield in the 1.5 beta, but there's a slight problem. When I have troops behind the shield line, lets say Sturgian Veteran Warriors in front of Sturgian Ulfhednar in...

    In Progress [1.5.0] Horse archers are placed too closely together at battle start.

    Summary: When beginning a battle, horse archers are packed together so that they constantly fidget and jockey around to get in the correct position. Sometimes this effects their ability to move or attack. How to Reproduce: Start a battle with at least 2 mounted units in group IV (Horse Archers)...
  10. Need More Info Troop Formations don't save.

    I've noticed in Single Player that when I set formations, the next time I load up the saved game, all troops are reverted back to their original formations. Would be nice to have custom-set formations save, rather than having to set them every time I start playing.

    Resolved Broken Battle AI in 1.4.3 Beta Patch

    The forums won´t let me link images, so I´ll leave them here: https://prnt.sc/tt5we6 https://prnt.sc/tt5x6d https://prnt.sc/tt67x8 https://prnt.sc/ttb1ng (another example from a battle against the Aserai hours later) Playing as a mercenary for Vlandia, my party is engaged by a Sturgian army...
  12. Formations & Commands/Pikes and Archers

    So I just watched this video and am reevaluating a few things about my strategies, let me see if I have this right and then I'll ask my questions: So if I have this right - and correct me if I'm wrong about anything - formations aren't just hotkeys, they dictate AI behavior. And "advance" and...
  13. Custom Formations (Single Player)

    Hi it is Nate again, I have an idea to use one of the open F keys to command troops or armies into custom formations mid-battle. In my mind, you could have an interface where you draw a shape for a particular formation, such as a "Reverse U" shape to place your archers around a hill but not...
  14. Compound Formations and Designate Charge Points

    Just a couple ideas that I believe might add some more enjoyement and efficiency to in-battle tactics that I thought of based off my experiences in the game. Compound formations could be designated during or before battle essentially allowing divisions of units to be grouped together and...
  15. Resolved Troop formations start next to the enemy in village/hideout battles

    If you assign troops to formations 5 or 6 in the party screen, they seem to start hideout/village battles in the middle of the map and start fighting straight away! I'm just trying to get my troops into formation, but the killfeed is already going nuts! I assume most people will be putting...
  16. Formations bug/unplayable

    How few play with formations? Did you still notice that the formations are now broken? almost always .. I like you, but how can you release such a patch? Or the main thing, the shock troops of the Northmen no longer have shields mhhhhh almost 1 week ... The singleplayer is now unplayable...

    Apparent Bugs with Formations and Tactical Commands

    Playing 1.4.0 that was upgraded into e1.4.2. I've noticed problems with formations. The face enemy command isn't working correctly in many situations. For example when I attack sea raider hideouts, they will face away away from the enemy even when there is only one force in one particular...
  18. Having formation issues in regards to spacing.

  19. Ability to change rank and file of formation

    I know changes / improvements to formations are planned. But this is one particular feature I’d like to see. I have a line of infantry 3 men deep. I’d like to make the formation 4 deep without dragging the whole line out. Being able to press some keybind and order the formation to adjust this...

    Siege and battle formations bug

    Got a pretty bad one here. In sieges sometimes all units are mixed together into two formations so I've got archers and infantry both climbing ladders and siege towers and ultimately my archers get wrecked. Had this bug since 1.3 The other bug is formations such as shield wall working however...
