Re: A Sengoku Jidai: Gempei Kassen AAR (by Jayson NG)

Is the name generator also working in the campaign? Is this why I can never find Nobunaga? :evil: Ahm... supposing that the number of maps is finite (meaning, they are not randomly generated), have you guys thought about building a "rotator" for the maps? That way we can have each map become 4 maps ...

First tests with cav 18AP

I've played 4 battles with it and I must say the feeling is very good. The teppo don't seem to be too vulnerable to the cav charge: they still evade it when picked off from far away (it's just that this far can be a bit farther now). The archers instead seem harder to escape, but they work completel...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

It's ok I will do it.
It'll just take some more time but will let you know how it works out.

1) <-- top priority to me.

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

Rob nothing you're saying is new to me or wrong as is. I agree 100%. The cavalry also has the advantage of charging, doing major damage and falling back. It is much stronger than it should be against spear units charged from the front side. Also, it's got the evading manouver too. I have weighted al...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

It's all true, that's why even a minor change can't be applied without a complete rebalance of several other factors... a task beyond me. However it's a given fact the CAV can't wheel and go. It's not manouverable... perhaps wheeling costing 0AP altogether? Look at how Teppo turns 180° and still has...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

The problem here is that if you do an about face (180° wheel) the turn of the cavalry is over. The cavalry can barely fall back 1 square ... it is not manouverable as it should be. This means the infantry will catch it at the next turn so basically the horse can't evade the foot ... and on top of th...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

We know it's all balanced but this is the only problem the currently balanced set of stats has: the cavalry has troubles catching skirmishers and it's so little manouverable it's difficult for it to even carry out a flanking manouver... if you move it from far it will take ages, from close... jammed...

Re: Can the unit files be changed?

No actually my goal is to make cavalry harder to catch by infantry and easier to perform flanking manouvers with. The rest is absolutely perfect.

Can the unit files be changed?

I didn't look yet into the file system. Is there a way to test how the game would behave if I altered the number of movement points of the units (+3 for cavalry, +1 for everyone else) ?

Re: Battle didn't start

The fact that it never attacked at all suggests that either (a) you were the invader, or (b) the AI was awaiting reinforcements. Yes the AI was waiting for reinforcements and they did arrive but since neither side moved the battle wasn't actually fought. I was invaded and retreated. I didn't like t...

Battle didn't start

After 2 failed attempts to attack (retreated because of my strong position), the Oda and Takeda engaged. http://i.imgur.com/ow9XOW7.jpg And the battle didn't start because since I was outnumbered I decided to have him come to me. He didn't... ... and I lost the battle with 0-0 casualties but did ret...

I said many times every battle I fight, I win by pure chance at the last moment and it could end either way. Every battle is a record of "the greatest battle so far" isn't that how I finished my previous post? What did I say... that I knew that record would be beaten... didn't I? Here's the battle a...

Re: The end...

Since what's happening now is basically connected (same campaign, just from the Takeda side), I'm using the same thread. After pulling off a total miracle at Gifu I was still pushed back so it's an unchanged situation with me having won 2, captured 1 territory and still at slight disadvantage. The O...

Re: A sudden change of events...

Well aside from finding it quite odd for the Uesugi to join the Takeda, the 2 Daimyos were archrivals historically. :) Your funds are depleted because you pay the upkeep for your standing armies. It's a good idea to split forces so even a small army that can never fight may still keep in check a muc...

I know but that's to be connected with the cav speed... I think... too slow. To answer to your Q about the reinforcements (I thought it was in a different thread so I was surprised to see your Q while I was posting my own): there is a gold mine to be dug out of the campaign.

Re: The end...

I know, I've considered that but do a test with the cavalry charging a teppo from different distances and auto-evasion. Compare the distance covered by the Teppo during the evasion manouver and the one covered by the cavalry during the charge. It appears to me the Teppo run too far away on foot comp...

Re: The end...

Jomni, the limitations on the campaign engine imposed on the front line armies that can't be reinforced have been aggravating this campaign and they are basically ruining the one I'm playing for the Takeda side which followed this present campaign I won. Oda has a slight advantage but lost a provinc...

Re: Raising new army in the campaign question?

The mandatory units are not the strongest ones, they are a balanced representation of the key units in the nation's forces. Also, whenever auxiliary units join the army, they are heavily weighted towards lower quality troops, so even if the core field army becomes progressively more veteran, armies...
