Re: Give the shieldwall unit some helmets like Dailami foot and make hirdsmen armoured?

You don't need to provide evidence. We are well aware that some of the men in a shieldwall would have helmets. However, as we have mentioned before, we are a small studio and our art budget (and art time allocation) is not infinite. There were simply too many variations of appearance in Ancient and...

Re: "Wack a mole" behavior

First, great game now that I've been able to not lose for more than 30 years. Not sure if this has been covered: Playing Epirus (on Balanced difficulty), took Dardarni's capitol and 70 armies went on the run in the remaining four underdeveloped provinces they had left. Was allied with Carthage and ...

Re: Greek units should be able to recruit a Superior Infantry unit

Referring back to the original post, some states like Syracuse are completely outclassed. I had to abandon my game with Syracuse due to getting fed up with facing overwhelming odds ( http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=534&t=93327 ) (I did lack some deeper game knowledge that I now have...

Re: Greek units should be able to recruit a Superior Infantry unit

But improved units don't become the advanced type in Field of Glory II if you export the battle. Thureophoroi are still thureophoroi, Javelins are still javelins. Why not have them become peltasts and Thorakitai/imitation legions? That would be way cooler and way more historically accurate, and wou...

Re: Greek Faction Unit Questions

Agreed. The Spartans didn't even have pike phalanxes at the game's start, and didn't develop them until Kleomenes. Superior hoplites would be better -- I made a thread elsewhere regarding Greek units in general. The rosters need retooling rather badly at present -- they are not representative of Hel...

Greek units should be able to recruit a Superior Infantry unit

A superior hoplite unit would go a long way towards a) making Greek rosters feel more unique and interesting, giving access to a Palace Guard unit that could give a good RP reason to get attached to specific commanders and b) would allow historically powerful Greek states like Syracuse compete again...

Re: Which provincial units are really unique?

Armenian Cataphracts and Armenian cavalry are an incredible asset. Galatian warbands give some much-needed impact foot in a land of flimsy Thureophoroi. Pontus and Armenia can build a really mean combined arms force if they expand.

This is assuming you have FOG2 as well.

Re: Why these simple rules are so satisfying

I have never gotten tired of it. Each battle is a microcosm unto itself. Do yourself a favor and get FOG Empires too -- adding a campaign layer to battles is great fun and the army compositions are outside the box. I am having a blast.

Any plans to include more unit types from earlier Field of Glory II DLCS?

It would be cool to see armored hoplites, Assyrian foot, chariots, Gibborim, etc in game! Are there plans to add anything like that to the game? Or perhaps even an earlier scenario set in the 500s BCE? That would be pretty awesome! As of now, while I do love the game, unit variety for Hellenic facti...

Re: All of my generals are terrible. How do I get new ones??

I looked in the factions file and it is formidable. I will attempt to change the value.

Perhaps i'll try suiciding the generals too.

I really do not like this method of leadership generation. It is frustrating.

Re: All of my generals are terrible. How do I get new ones??

Damn. That's bad news. My leader has the very bad military trait, I have two 0-0 generals, and a ton of enemies with stronger armies. I hate that something that arbitrary will basically end my glorious Massalia run. I wish there was a way around that. Has anyone figured out a way to edit the save fi...

All of my generals are terrible. How do I get new ones??

I'm talking 0-0 across the board. All three of them. I am Massalia and i am in a knife fight for survival and I just can't deal with this. My armies melt enough as it is. How do I get more? I even tried opening the save file but it doesn't look editable. Is there something I can do? This system seem...

How do I edit available rosters for, say, Massalia?

I want to enable Gallic warbands from the start, as having the regular Hellenic roster is a recipe for suicide against the elite Arverni warbands. What would I edit or add to allow Massalia to recruit a basic Gallic warband impact foot unit from the start?

As the title says. It has happened multiple times -- I get the pop up but I do not receive a new pop in the province. Am I going crazy? What is happening?

Re: Why have my Spartan phalanxes deteriorated in quality

Okay so after further playing I think I have figured it out. Attacking an enemy in their home region massively decreases your troop quality. I guess this represents home field morale advantage, which certainly was a very real factor in ancient combat. However, I think that's poorly implemented. It s...
