Re: Tenka Fubu ODA major battle (Modded)

We're not talking of melee, we're talking of free movement. It moves too slow compared to foot and takes penalties that further make the foot more advantageous. Put them side by side in the open... cav may go farther, but only slightly... that advantage in combat is lost due to terrain and ZoC. It's...

Re: Tenka Fubu ODA major battle (Modded)

I know but if you put an infantry unit beside a cavalry unit in the open and push them forward as far as they can go you can see the distance covered is too short for a cavalry unit... and cavalry also needs to take care of ZoCs and terrain penalties. In 10 seconds a walking man can walk 7 meters (m...

Re: Tenka Fubu ODA major battle (Modded)

I've done a hundred battles but it takes longer to do an AAR, sure I'll do it just give me the time pretty busy atm with real life events. The problem of cavalry is the one that gives me problems with this system of mechanics which I like very much. It is balanced as is but I think it needs to give ...

Re: Tenka Fubu ODA major battle (Modded)

It does. I just wish the cavalry was easier to manouver and displayed the speed it had. While it is fast enough, the problem of ZOC and terrain basically render it extremely hard to be successful with. Increasing their AP did the trick. This game is all about AI and fortunately the DEVs have already...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

See Eriss, the only problem i have with the movement is not the speed but the maneuverability. Even though the Cav can avoid being charged it has serious problems with terrain and with ZOC. So, in order to use it successfully you must move it quite far away and then come back to swing towards the ce...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

I don't know if you can add a condition, surely rob will explain, still... do not forget that if you charge skirmishers from far you probably aren't gonna catch them... which leaves the cav exposed to be shot or charged in turn. The extra APs are very useful for maneuverability (turning) because the...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

Try 20AP... you'll find the explanations on how to do it in this thread: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 29&t=73407
I've been playing with it a lot and haven't gone back.

Re: About Ashigaru

Teppo are the perfect skirmishers... hard to catch and can do some serious damage if left unchecked. I find them very strong in defense when you place them in the woods but to keep them shooting you must shoot either the second lines from your flanks or just plainly go to engage other missile units ...

Re: About Ashigaru

Try to make the enemy engage in a spot where you can shoot them from the flanks. That's where you should push your teppo. They are the perfect skirmishers and they are hard to catch.

Re: Sengoku Jidai - Faction preview I - Japan

Yep I used to play SoW and TC2M with restricted view. Same with TW engine (the R2 way is the best ... sadly battles are simply too small). Yet it wouldn't be a bad idea because it would lay the base on multi-army battles. If the AI can take over the player's units then there can be multiple AIs in b...

Re: About Ashigaru

Modernization of the army and conscription in mass numbers didn't allow the real training used by the warlords of the initial period. I don't know how they are implemented in the late game, all I know is the Tenka Fubu... in theory their units should be bigger and the ashigaru should take different ...

Re: Marvelous game

I agree it is a very good game but Gshock`s points on some of the strategic play are quite valid. No Army can constantly refuse battle and the idea that one should let the defender chase the attacker around the map is ridiculous. A change I would like to see is some info or fuzzy estimate on the lo...

Re: Sengoku Jidai - Faction preview I - Japan

Look at the first picture... how considerably harder and more intriguing the game would be if our view was restricted to what the Honjin can see...
That would require the player to assign some units to the AI control.... to take over when he can't give direct orders to them. Ah... dreams. :-)
