Imagine AI soldiers marching through the larger cities amongst civilians. That would be immense but probably a nightmare to do well :p
 
A small band of soldiers marching up and down some square could be fun.
(For code, there is TLD's "intro_mordor" mission template with marching orcs)

Hey Doc, are you going to add more civilians? It would be cool too walk in a city, fill with people maybe also soldiers :smile: because in normal warband there is like Non:razz: sry for ly bad english btw.
Should be a "simple" thing to do.

I would love to see hundreds of civilians aswell.
Europe 1805 v2 already has an option to set the number of "town walkers".

This might have been already asked, but i've got a clue. While laying siege either to a fortress or a city, do you need to create a breach then storm it with your soldiers to capture the town? If yes, is a demolition system for walls planned or already in?

If it's got walls, you'll probably need to batter them down.

That, with NPC controlled artillery. Oh jesus, can't wait.

Works pretty well in TOTSK. It's a bit inaccurate but it gets the job done.

So, on the topic of the artillery inclusion, are there going to be different ammo types for the guns? Round, Percussion, Canister? Or, is it going to be one universal type of ammunition?

Canister would be a great addition if DrTomas decides to add it, but for now there isn't any. There's a chance I can hammer xenoargh's shotgun code into the artillery to get some, but it's unlikely.
 
The artillery in Twilight of the Sun King fires explosive shells. The artillery code is essentially hit-scan, so the gun picks a target, a random amount of deviation is added, and then the ground explodes and kills anything in a radius. There's no actual projectile in flight.

Would be cool

Yes, yes, yes and yes.

Anyway, here are some more Italians. Cacciatori a Cavallo, specifically.

I doubt anyone cares about these guys, though. I know I don't. Nothing against the Italians, but a slightly modified French uniform with an ugly czapka doesn't do it for me.
 
Those were on the dress coat, these are the Kinskis that were universal on campaign.

You can't really see (except a bit in the first screen), but they have loops on their collars.

Never liked Czapkas.

Why did this unit wear them? Did they just think they looked fancy? They're certainly not lancers.
I'm guessing they're either a complete equivalent of the chasseurs a cheval, as their name suggests, or some sort of mounted infantry.

do we have any information of who though of these squared hats? and based to what where the uniforms created? did they had some sort of special department responsible for the design of the gear and clothes?

Wonderfoul job as alwais doc :grin:
 
I think czapkas range from bloody brilliant (like the guard Polish Chevaux-legers one) to really silly (like Italian and Austrian ones).

They are, as the name suggests, the same sort of light cavalry as the French chasseurs (I wish English had a word equivalent to Chasseur/Cazadore/Jaeger. Neither chaser nor hunter cut it). Why they wore czapkas is anybody's guess, but Polish style was in vogue at the time.

Well, I don't think Napoleon (the king) or Eugene de Beauharnais (the viceroy) particularly cared about their uniforms, so the minister of war, Augusto Caffarelli, and his department would have been in charge of uniforms.

I think they look kind of neat, actually. That's my opinion though, I'm a bit fond of Italy during the times.
