Frontage and Cavalry

Post by matt3916 » Wed Oct 09, 2019 2:13 am

I know it's 10+4 for Plain (Foot/Cav). What about for the other eight terrain types?

And is it possible for the Region Display to show as X+Y rather than a gross number?

It is in the file AEP_TERRAINS_v2e.xls in the column "Flank".
You find this file in the zip Empires_DB.zip, under rootgame/Data/Database

I appreciate that it is available in the depths of the software files, but this needs to be easily visible via the UI. hopefully this can come in a future release.

The UI is never done ... :roll: :D

Plain: 10+4
Hills and arid hills: 6+2
Steppes and arid Steppes: 8 + 6
Desert: 8 + 8 (bring the camels!)

I fought against Sparta.
The enemy had:
2x Cavalry
3x Spartan Hoplite
13x Helot Sdhieldbearer
2x Urban Militia.
Terrain: Hill
Frontage: 6+2(Cav)
Sparta arranged the army in order from the strongest in the center to the weakest but ... although it is logical, they lacked cavalry on the flank even though they had their own cavalry.

UM HS HS HS HS UM
HS HS HS HS HS HS HS HS
__ CV SH SH SH CV HS __

UM - Urban Militia
HS - Helot Shieldbearer
CV - Cavalry
SH - Spartan Hoplite

I would like other players to say what they think about cavalry flank (green) can only support cavalry units?
I know that skirmishers supported cavalry sometimes, especially if the enemy had cavalry superiority (Alexander the Great did so under gaugamela if I remember correctly).
But in the game this would increase the importance of cavalry, especially for the faction with good cavalry. (I am thinking mainly of mounted archers)
