Re: What is "rough ground" in real life?

Terrain with a lot of rocks, a lot of bushes or light forest with heavy undergrowth. The same elevation doesn't necessarily mean that the rough tile is flat, just that it doesn't have a significant and/or consistent height advantage compared to the surrounding tiles. It doesn't take much to make it ...

Re: Version 1.5.24 Open Beta – Iberia Update

Really nice surprise! The Iberian enhancement addresses one of my few remaining pet peeves about the game. Paul's Iberian units fit well with the vanilla stuff and the additional light horse are great to have as well! Thank you Paul and Stephen!

I haven't noticed any bugs or issues so far.

Re: Siracusan/Sicilian campagin vs Gauls not possible

Syracuse and Gaul probably fail to overlap just barely since there's the entire Italy in between them. With the geographic filter turned off you can still play the custom campaign against them.

Re: Skip Replay?

Byzantine Games doesn't have a direct access to the game engine itself and creating the new (bug free) parallel system would certainly no be a small task. I think vast majority of players would not use the option either which means it would be a lot of work for little gain. If you haven't already, y...

Re: Swapped Hoplite models?

It's not how the Greek, Roman or any civilization I know of acted though :). What bothers me more than the historical authenticity is that the two unit models here break the conventions of FoG2 unit graphics. High quality units generally have brighter colored, more ornamental and metallic equipment ...

Re: Camels

The cavalry in FoG2 battles works pretty accurately when compared to historical accounts of battles.The cavalry of both armies would often fight next to the infantry battle and the winning cavalry sometimes regrouped in time to attack the flank or rear of the enemy with great effect. A larger cavalr...

Re: Swapped Hoplite models?

Those are the models in any army list, no mods. The raw hoplites indeed have no shield pattern but other than that these two models would seem more fitting the other way around.

Swapped Hoplite models?

I was wondering if the Raw and Citizen Hoplites are currently using correct models:

The Raw hoplites of the left have more colorful clothing, fancier helmets and they have greaves unlike the Citizen Hoplites on the right.

Re: Which Armies/Units would you like to see

Has anyone ever come across any details of Swabian swordsmen of the 11th century? In battle of Civitate 1053 Norman army (mainly cavalry) fought a Papal army of Lombards, Italians and Swabians. According to Ian Heath and Wikipedia article, the size of Norman army was 3000 cavalry (and 500 infantry a...

Re: Have Moravians ever crossed swords with Abbasids?

Makes sense. I guess having each army in the list have a corresponding list of potential adversaries, similar to list of allies, would require too much time to implement. It's also questionable whether the end result would be any more realistic. Records of many conflicts have surely disappeared ove...

Re: What's the skinny on the new dlc?

Other than telling us that there will be more DLC in the future, I don't think RBS or anyone else from Slitherine will reveal any details before the official announcement. The first definitive proof of new DLC is probably going to be a beta tester search that usually means the release is still a few...

Re: FOG Empires + FOG II Question

Like Paul said, you have all the FoG2 DLC installed even if you don't own them and FOG Empires can utilize units from any DLC and will do so even if you don't own that DLC for FoG2.

Re: Moving through a ZOC

If the red hoplite was facing a blue non-light then the blue hoplite could just turn to face the cavalry with no risk of rear charge by the red hoplite with or without Cunningcairn's suggested change. I think the ideal and most realistic solution would be that if a unit is sandwiched like this (aka ...

Re: Moving through a ZOC

https://www.slitherine.com/forum/download/file.php?id=67625 At least to me the blue unit being prevented from charging the enemy hoplites in this situation just because the hoplites are at slight angle is more gamey than if they were able to charge. The distance and the threat of the red Hoplite un...

Re: Is it possible for the game engine to support units blocking LOS?

Considering how finicky the LOS mechanics are, I don't think the concealment would work in most situations. Even when it did, it would be more likely messing with the undo button or the AI than be a part of some stratagem. Without markers it would be almost impossible to figure out what squares a un...

Re: Public Beta 1.5.22

I played one battle as Vikings vs Germany and the HW Huscarls worked nicely in my opinion. The 10 POA bonus gives them little edge against the Dismounted Armoured Lancers/Cavalry but it's not so much that it would decide the battle on its own. The small bonus makes the HW feel more like a general-pu...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

Looking forward to the 1.5.22! I played with the number a bit, but the simple one is more succint than what I did. However, I am still conservative on HW +10POA against spear. Spearwall can be more tight than HW, can't they? Shall we give spearmen tight formation bonus? Besides, Axe Huscarl is alrea...

Re: Heavy Weapon anti-armour effect revamp

That sounds like a good system as well. Simpler but with pretty much the same end results. I like the example POA values more as well. 50 POA armour advantage for Fully-armoured dismounted men-at-arms vs Armoured billmen sounds about right as does the 25 POA advantage for well armoured legionaries. ...
