Hello wym, it must be nearly two years since we last met on the battlefields of ntw3.
a few issues that need addressing in 5.1 especially imo the unit stacking that produces silly blob fest charges that no musket fire can counter
I saw something about the BLOB recently, and was shocked, to see it still infects the game......and even worse, wins games.
It would be good if something "technical" could be done to stop it even being possible.
Slowing what? game speed/charge speed?
If I dare make a suggestion, not a new one, we have all heard it before, but.........here goes :STOP all running.
If we could get a few hundred, or thousand ntw3 users all together in real life, and take them on some coaches out into the countryside, then ask them to form up in any kind of formation they what, and then start RUNNING
across open fields, with ditches, fences, hedges and broken ground, I wonder what kind of shambles they would be in, after just 100 yards ?.........now add the cannon and musket fire, and the smoke.
One of the biggest fault with ntw3 was always the non stop running around, back and forth, around and around in circles ; It was simply NOT possible to do in real life, so why allow it to happen "in game" ?.....don't worry, I already know the answer. The game will be too slow and boring, and take to long to play.
I hope you get a good, nicely improved version wym, whatever that may look like.....and I'm most impressed your still active along with Lancier : is Frog still around, or did he retire ?.
All the best.
