Fact Checking.

Post by AlexDetrojan » Tue Aug 14, 2018 12:57 am

So I just downloaded the reduced movement and range mod for the Thirty Years War and The Italian Wars. I'm wondering how do we know which measurements are correct? The mods or the developers? How would we even determine this? I'll tell you, the reduced movement and ranges really changes the play of the game...not sure for the better or not. Thoughts?
Cheers
Alex

The mod's ranges are probably more realistic. However, they only balance because the movement distances are also reduced.

The vanilla ranges are designed to give a more enjoyable game, because we did not think people would enjoy playing with such short movement distances.

It's the old debate. Historical accuracy against enjoyment and play ability.
