Vanishing Star Forts, Ottoman Campaign

Postby portraitoftheartist » Sat Nov 28, 2020 7:25 pm

Hi Guys

I downloaded recently the latest patch for NTW3 (8.9) this month, and so far it has been terrific. However, I'm into my second campaign (Ottoman, 1805) and have noticed a big problem.

If you're defending a star fort it vanishes in the battle. In the campaign the fort is very visible. But as soon as the city is assaulted it effectively disappears (see b). The strangest thing is that the map is set up for a fort battle in as much as the defender's space is square shaped and the attackers is a right angle (see c). But no fort. I tried fighting a fort battle on play battle mode and sure enough its there (d).

What are my options here? I really don't want to uninstall and reinstall NTW3 (if that will work), or is there a patch I'm missing?

Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Napoleon rendered major fortifications outdated with his rapid maneuver warfare. His goal was to defeat the enemy in the open battlefield and bypass entrenched & fortified positions. There were exceptions with fortifications in Spain and the siege of Danzig (March 18-27, 1807).

With this in mind we took the star forts out of the NTW3 European & Ottoman campaigns. Istanbul starts the Ottoman campaign with a level 1 fort and you can build small forts in most of the Ottoman Capitals. Greece has a Theater added in place of the fort slot to represent the emphasis on Greek culture. Other Capitals in the European campaign have the fort slot filled with other useful buildings to enhance their economy.

Ahh, I see. i was wondering about the larger forts. But perhaps i'm not being clear.

I'm talking about the smaller level 1 forts. I built one in Belgrade and its vanished now its under attack. Its so weird because the planning phase is shaped like it would be for a siege battle; i.e. the defender is in a square and the attacker a right angle.

Thanks for your help!
