must agree, it's a great game, have you tried the editor?

if not give it a go once you have finished it, easy to use and can extend any battle or make it your own from scratch in a few hours, then share it with friends,nobody as yet done any mods for it, i've done a few for myself, but not good enough to share as yet, but you never know if you don't fire it up and at least see it, most don't, have read steam users views and tbh don't do many favours to the game, seems to be like Marmite, with 50% either way atm :roll: :wink:

It's worth sharing your mods I think. They can often help other people with ideas and your implementations, and I think you will be surprised how keen people are for more content :)

i did think about it, and also agree with your post, but as i did them when i did the beta, would need to update them now as well, and that takes time, plus test them, share them etc and amend where needed, have a bit too much on atm testing to do it as well, but will do it one day, just not in the next few weeks or months maybe :oops:

Sorry, there is no time for this. When i have some minutes left i"m creating scenarios for Peoples General for almost 5 years. But never say never, maybe in the future.

If you change the army size to custom, it does allow you to assign any sized force you want but it keeps both army sizes the same. It doesn't allow you to make them different. By default the AI's side gets a force point advantage, so you can erase that but you can give yourself a point advantage.

Do we still think this is WAD? I was actually hoping the last patch (104) had changed this. I play skirmish most of the time and find this odd.

This is a point I might concede if they make a possible optional (see ironfist I can type optional) random feature if it balanced for fairness and at least a chance of winning. I prefer random anytime and anywhere and any way I can get it. Not knowing the number of points the enemy gets to buy units can be as much fun as selecting them outright.

I did find a way you can handicap yourself vs the ai. Just don't buy all the points worth you are given. I only bought 250 or so points in a 500 point game vs the ai and the ai spent all 500 while I only had half as much. Seems to work ok if you are handicapping the ai and that really is what most should be doing.

I never thought of this... :oops: ... seems to accomplish exactly what I wanted.

Thanks!
