Option for graphic combat results

Post by Ronhudale » Mon Oct 13, 2014 6:56 pm

I know its not important to gameplay but I was wondering if there was an option for dead bodies, destroyed cannon etc. This would enhance the overall visual effect of a battlefield much like the smoking tanks of BA2. I am assuming not but just curious. Its not a game breaker for me.

There wasn't time to do this prior to finalising the release version, but we hope to add it later in a patch.

Yes, that would add something to the atmosphere and visual realism I think. I would like to see that in a patch.

I'll add another vote for this. The old Great Battles series (Hannibal/Rome/Alexander) did this well.

It would be great to have a slightly different unit graphic showing the degradation for each level of morale.

All chrome though - the game is very enjoyable as is.
