I want to start a long game to conquer the entire map: Should I wait(will the new version be released anytime soon?) or can I start it now?
I actually havent taken over, I only planned to add one feature which would be Parliamentarian and Royalists generals recruiting regional troops which would wear clothes depending on the region they were recruited from (ex. whitecoated northern royalists with berets, Oxford area royalists in blue/red with montero caps etc)pizzaman_6 said:I heard on the Moddb page that Dazzer has taken the mod over for the time being, is there any new updates or screenshots on what is being developed?
Hazzardevil said:I would argue shields weren't obsolete. But they had definitely fallen out of use in most places. There's accounts from the Jacobite risings of targes stopping bullets. And the Highland Charge worked well through a couple of risings.
Sk4ever said:Welsh infantry is pretty useless without them
Sk4ever said:I mean that the point if mercs in WFAS is being customisible personal troops. But welsh Infantry mercs just suck compared to any other Faction. Maybe add them some sort of polearm so i can use them as anticav unit or maybe some good armor so they can survive longer. But its just a nitpicking cause i dont realy use them for any serious battles.

Your interest is no doubt mostly in a " military ( and costume, see ) simulation " of the ECW era.
Of course, in the 17th Century not just London was on fire - the Cultural Arts were ( are ) amazingly beautiful and engaging.
And through all the swirling intellectual forces, and violence, a Romantic Ideal was still an undercurrent.
So ... how immersive do you / we want to get ?
1. A proper 17th Century music playlist - has been broached months ago ( as for me, I have been inserting my own favourites ).
2. More fiddly still - can you incorporate some " extra " Warband coding into WFaS ( I would think so, technically ) ? Courtly Love was alive and well in the 17th Century - could we please have marriageable Ladies ( with Improved Faces, aforementioned ) scattered around the castles and cities ? No tournaments, of course, but poets and harpists and lutenists back in taverns, and the learnt poems now quoting Milton, Donne, Shakespeare, Spenser, etc .........and, copied with friendly permission, the coding, already in some Warband mods, that allows your wife to join your party, be equipped ....... ( put it this way, if all the Ladies around are nobles', generals', et al, wives, then they may be nice looking, but in fact are only decorative......... ).
It is easy to request a lot of work, but you can see that these immersive features would be great value - adding, and worth the effort I think ( what do I know ?! ).
So if an update is on its way, thanks for all your great enterprise ( your ECW certainly has the potential to be developed into a stand -out, even more innovative, " Superior Mod " ), and consideration of these sorts of things.
