Re: New Scenario: Panormus 251 BC, with City Walls!

I agree, map looks very nice. The walls can be crossed by units of both sides. This is intentional. Defenders are presumed to be using sally ports. Attackers have to be able to cross the walls, we can assume that they are using scaling ladders. This is how Heavy Fortifications work in P&S and SJ. Le...

The only games I know that allowed one to pick a pre made map for a random skirmish or campaign battle are the Steel Panthers games over at Shrapnel Games.
One can also do it in Battlefront's Combat Mission games.

Re: Table Top mod + (TTmod+): with a lot of new skins

I like the roman sword mouse pointer. But the point of the blade is made in too dark colour, so there is a proplem to see where one is exactly pointing over dark background colours.
So, I made a personal moded version.

For the current example would an abbreviation to "(K. Absitzen)" be acceptable?
Better just make it to "(A)". That's what you have already done with "Wilde Nomaden-Reiter mit Bögen (A)" in the Hun (Sabir) army.

Re: Text on maps

There is also a general problem with the size of text strings in the unit selection screens. It is especially annoying when playing the german language version, because of the long words in german language. Sometimes important information is cut off, like the '(können absitzen)' {=dismountable} of c...

Text on maps

On some maps (especially custome made) there are offen text strings that describes landmarks etc. Is there a way to switch it on/off ?
If not, it would be nice if this could be implemented in a patch.

Re: Field of Glory II Rise of Persia New DLC is coming! Dont miss the Twitch Preview!

Very nice.
Just out of curiosity...would this be the dlc that goes most back in time and all the other comming after this will be medieval or later?

Re: New TT Mod version 1.3.9 AVAILABLE HERE!

If I try to make a custom battle with Mountain Indians an error occurs:

Empty string trying to find string value: ALLIES1 in .../ARMYLIST.TXT (0)

Anyone else getting this?

Re: Wrong shadows after editing mapview.txt

I tried some different numbers for the pitch limit and 22 is the highest I can go without destroying the shadows.
The default pitch of 15 I find sub-optimal because at max zoom it is not possible to see the enemy front line. Makes fast orientation just to unhandy for me.

Wrong shadows after editing mapview.txt

I changed my mapview.txt to get better camera zoom and pitch:

PITCH 45
PITCHLIMIT 35 // 25
ZOOM 400
ZOOMLIMIT 1200 // 200
ZOOMINLIMIT 100 // 10
ROTATE 30
FOV 30

But now I get some strange shadow if I view from certain angles. Is there a way to adjust this?

Re: Help With Ancient Warfare Tactics

For an easy to read introduction into the ancient warfare I'd recommend Brian Todd Carey's book Warfare in the Ancient World. I found it very well balanced book for getting a nice overview of the entire period without getting bogged down in detail or having too narrow scope. The same author's Warfa...
