Does the troop quality affect the casualties inflicted (i.e., does it affect the number of attacks or hits)?

I really don't know how extended was the use of the composite bow, but I think it really doesn't matter for the topic being discussed here :wink: I mean: there is little doubt that some "units" were more efficient than others in the use of bows. So in the same way that we have skilled swordsmen, we ...

Good suggestion! :D

The famous Parthian shoot could also be implemented: evading horse archer units would shoot at the attacking unit.

There are lots of extra's on the way! A little offtopic here, but since you mentioned extras... I have noticed a nice Scythian horse archer png (unit-sycthian-LH-horse-archer-a.png) with all the facings in the units folder. Since the png is already there, could you please think about enabling the u...

I've given the bows to some of the later Roman Cavalry (not the Parthian Cats), and the AI will not use the bows at all. The human player can use them, but the computer will not. Edit: I have removed all the information about manually editing the scenario files after reading this post http://www.sl...

Examinondas' scenarios

I will post in this thread my scenarios, some historical and some fictional (although always with some historical basis). To start, here goes a fictional river crossing with Parthians facing Indo-Greeks. Parthian river crossing in India c.1AD Parthians vs Indo-Greeks Having outmaneuvered the Indo-Gr...

The mouse wheel works in the scenario editor too.

Perhaps fog.net is connecting to slitherine's servers to upload your score to the ranking system?

Since we are discussing the topic of war elephants, I think everybody should read the link below, which contains important information regarding their tactical capabilities :roll:

I think jomni was joking... The problem with the swords as melee is wide spread, since the editor seems to be hard-coded now to add them to a few unit types (LH and cavalry at least). I hope it's a bug and not a "feature" intended as a solution for some balancing problem. If the latter, it would be ...

I love the automatic charges by lance-armed cavalry! :D They add more chaos and uncertainty to the battlefield, and remove part of the unrealistic unit micro-management. IMHO, more unit types should do the same, specially if out of command radius (e.g. Caesar at Ruspina had to order his legionaries ...

Is LH forced to have swords as melee weapons in the new patch?

I don't recall seeing swords in the parthian horse archers before, and now they have them and can't be removed in the editor. The same happens (I believe) with thracian light horse.

I have noticed that if I copy a previous scenario and change its name (just by changing the folder name), it won't load as a new battle. The solution I have found is to edit (with notepad) the scenario0.fogsg and scenario1.fogsg files and write the new scenario name in the "gn" field. Hope it helps!...
