Yes. Working alongside with 'One step ahead' perk (when fully implemented,) under tactics, could be able to assign your troops to their formations + choose the loadout you desire.additional loadouts to choose before engaing in battle:
1.Face them on foot:
2. Face them mounted.
While I made good use of the chest feature during Warband play, It put a sense of unfairness over the AI, as you essentially had unlimited access to missiles, and if you are on horseback, you pretty much become "the boss that everyone hates & has trouble defeating."Warband used to implement battle chest so you can swap gears mid fight, could work like that too here.
they could just add an inventory slot so you can carry all the weapons you want...
Would be to much cheesing going on then + since you have one more slot to secure valuable loot in. Shouldnt be saying this since teaching out cheesing is wrong and i dont want to teach people to be weak. Its nothing im doing but i realized it some patches ago
