Re: Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #7 Provinces

You mean Balearic Slingers or Cretan Archers (haven't been able to recruit any archers in my game yet), not Cretan slingers. Building the archery building doesn't allow you to build archers, so how do you get archers if you don't have a special provincial unit?

Re: I've struggled hard to like this game...

yes it's annoying when it happens to you, but I don't want everything to be entirely predictable, it's more fun this way! If anything, it is very predictable. 2 out of 3 games, I can reliably discern the winner on or before first contact just based on who managed to get the matchups they wanted. On...

Re: When do you dismount lancers?

Is the ability to dismount a freebie or does it cost extra points?

Re: When do you dismount lancers?

I would dismount the lancers if faced by spear-armed heavy foot, as the lancers don't seem to bounce off them and the spear armed heavy foot have a better chance. How do you dismount troops anyway, and what happens to the horses? Can you dismount then remount? Or is it something you have to do durin...

Re: Streams

Ok the exact text from the patch notes is: "Light Foot can only charge non-light troops if the latter are in Rough or Difficult terrain. (They could previously charge them in non-Open terrain that was neither of these - e.g. small Streams)." "Unless they are in Rough or Difficult terrain, or defendi...

Streams

What is the effect of streams now? I've been told that all they do is provide a line of squares that are not counted as clear terrain, and they are not an obstacle. Is that correct?

Byzantine lists

I've started my first game with the Byzantines and I am somewhat taken aback by the content of the army list. Back in the glory days of 25mm, my best friend had a Nikephorian Byzantine army, which stood out because it had cataphracts that charged in wedge (looked good but - being cataphracts - despi...

Re: Mercenaries mod

The mod has now been released: it includes five new Thracian lists - Early, middle, and late Getic Celtic Thracian (kingdom of Tylis) early, Hellenistic, later, and Roman Thracian Early and later Triballi. For an explanation of these lists see this book: The Gods of Battle.jpg - it upgrades Numidian...

Re: New TT Mod version 1.5.3 AVAILABLE HERE!

I love the imagery in this mod, (it's beautiful!) but disagree with some aspects of your Thracian lists. Can I make some suggestions or would you mind if I make my own mod of the Thracian lists (assuming that's done the normal wayjust by editing a few files and there's no additional code)?

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

Lots of learned input. I just want to say that in my experience the cataphracts are really poor for their cost. Bunny told me that they cost 72 before but even at 68 they don't offer much of a punch. Cataphracts have often had this problem with previous rule sets - look great but don't do much, mak...

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

I also think that with the war on light troops reaching a new crescendo, their cost should be reduced. In my last battle I had light bowmen on a hill that were charged by light horse bow - if my infantry had stood to receive the charge, they had a good chance of surviving, but no, they had to run aw...

Re: Unit Costing Anomalies

I am looking at putting in a mod that includes superior light horse with javelin/light spear and light horse with javelin/light spear and sword. I am interested to find out why these two troop types do not exist in any current list? Is it because they are not worth the points? Is a javelin and sword...

Re: Still can't figure ZOC...

I see your point but suggest watching this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEK7W1AfdzE&t=557s The Hoplite unit is not ZOC locked as regards the unit that is ZOCing it - so it can turn towards your scutarii unit. H'mm but it turned away from your scutarii - I surmise that it was able to do that as i...

Re: Impetuosity Check

In Australia you eat Vegemite, not Marmite, and although they look the same and are made the same way, they do taste different (though probably not to people who don't like them). My brother had to test the content of Vegemite for his science course - result was 99% salt! Still a good antidote for d...
