Re: Fantasy Scenario's/wars

I have been long hoping that the new version would be very moddable. Not sure where that's going to end up now.

Re: Please keep our community alive

I've been playing computer wargames since the mid 80's...starting with the SSI Civil War series on a Commodore 64. I still have a copy of the old SSI Battles of Napoleon game (a virtual dosbox copy) that I play regularly on my laptop. Civil War Generals II is another of my favorites. But FOG is defi...

Re: Pike and Shot announced

Seriously, best news gamewise I've heard in a long time! I kept praying that FOG would get an expansion pack to cover this period; but obviously this seems like a way better option.

Mods

Has anyone stumbled across any mods for Field of Glory? I know that a while back someone seemed to be working on a Napoleonic mod and that apparently didn't get anywhere. I'm fervently hoping the new version they are working on includes some modules from the gunpowder era...just wondering if there i...

Re: melee break off

Alas it can't be done. To add to your woes, only certain units are able to break off and their decision to do so is the hands of the Dice Gods. Thanks for the reply. I suppose this is reasonable given that this game focuses on ancient and medieval warfare. I'm one of those who waits patiently for t...

melee break off

Does anyone know of a way to enable units to break off from a melee? It would be nice to have the option to direct your units to retreat from a melee prior to actually routing.

Re: Bronze Age

I would certainly snap up anything with Assyrians in it.

Bombards--are they realistic in this game?

For the bombards that are included with the expansion pack Storm of Arrows, it strikes me that these unsupported units are unrealistically tough when they are being assaulted by large infantry units. These slow firing units with 20 or so gunners should melt away at the site of 1000 or 1500 heavy inf...

Re: The New Field of Glory

Wow! Very exciting news, this! The main thing I would like to see is for FOG to be more customizable, in terms of unit types and weapons. So that users can develop scenarios in other periods, TYW, Napoleonic, ACW. (Operational Art of War did a nice job with this when someone came along with the 19th...

Very much looking forward to this expansion. There hasn't been a really good tactical napoleonic game since SSI did Battles of Napoleon. And I only gave that up because it's so difficult making it work with any of the recent operating systems.

XTML Editor

Can anyone recommend a good XTML editor to use to edit the game-fixed file? Doing edits with only a text editor is more tedious than editing unit values while in the scenario editor. I have tried using a package called Edit-X. But for some reason this package is extremely slow and not practical to u...
