Re: Running out of manpower

Oh, thanks, I wondered what use the "abuse emissary" option was. That's some interesting points you make. I haven't played FOG Empires for a while, I got so involved in it I kept playing past midnight and trying to to to work the next day... found out how serious lack of sleep can lead to PTSD if yo...

Re: Running out of manpower

Wait until the timer runs out? That's no way to defeat an enemy! I won the game as Pyrrhus, completely wiping out the Roman armies several times, but only conquered two Roman provinces. Got the manpower down to -10. Diplomacy is as difficult and unreasonable in this game as in practically every othe...

Running out of manpower

I am trying to play the Pyrrhus scenario and wow, is it difficult! As the Romans I never got to invade Epirus because of the attacks from the north, and then I ran out of manpower. The Romans run out of manpower??? Then I tried playing as Pyrrhus and found that you have to keep one big army together...

Peloponnesian War mod?

1. It looks as though you can only mod the existing maps from existing scenarios. Does that mean I can't produce a new map that would be suitable for a Pelponnesian War scenario, extending from Sicily to Anatolia but zoomed in to allow for more states in that area? 2. Of course, for me, this would b...

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

Thanks for the kind comments... it's easy to show appreciation for the effort I made to put them together, and to encourage me to make more - just buy a copy of "The Gods of Battle", available as an E-book or as a hard back! :D :lol: :lol: you won't regret it, there's a lot packed in there about anc...

Re: Quick Questions Thread on Rules

You have to have line of sight to a target to shoot at it. There is a button on the right side of the screen you can click on, that will show you what is the line of sight. No, you can't shoot over a hill unless you can see over it - sometimes you think you don't have a line of sight but you do! I h...

Re: Quick Questions Thread on Rules

Wait till you see what happens to the knights under the medieval rule, it is so frustrating not to be able to hit the front and flank in the same turn because even the flank unit breaks off!!!

Re: Quick Questions Thread on Rules

I asked because in the last battle the cavalry appeared not disordered in melee; I'll watch more carefully, thanks :) Possibly the cavalry were disrupted, and if you are disrupted or fragmented then there is not an additional deduction for disorder, since loss of cohesion means you are already diso...

Re: Quick Questions Thread on Rules

Evading is different to normal movement. Cavalry for instance can't normally zig-zag around obstacles, but they can do that if evading.

Re: Quick Questions Thread on Rules

If you turn on line of sight, and your unit can see the enemy, can the enemy always see that unit? I have some hidden units and I'm wondering how I can tell when the enemy can see them.

Re: Newbie

To learn more about generals, I suggest watching this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8O6s-LRcyU&t=32s I think all your examples are comparing armour. Actually the morale of the unit is more important than the armour, and a unit with average morale and "armoured" may lose to a unit that has vetera...

Naval integration

For those hoping for some naval action in the game, or a naval variant... it seems it can be done with 15mm figurines (using different rules of course) https://misternizz.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/galley-warfare-another-fine-plague-project/?fbclid=IwAR1c-_Mi1IbcuvhOhZbz6rRl7MY5sqXfxEHdkt6gEN5ClTPjTID...

Re: Massed peltast +50% javelins

I know that Richard is dead against equipping Medium or Heavy Foot with javelins. I can't remember exactly why, but I think it is something to do with previous problems with other rule sets that had this feature. Yes, "too much like 6th or 7th edn WRG" but massed peltasts didn't work as well under ...
