    Re: Funny sieges

    Funny that.

    It happens but rarely when the ground is slopping. Then the city walls on the high side of the slope can end up underground. I have only ever seen this a couple of times. Do you...
  2. Re: [1648 mini AAR] Palatinate of the Rhein

    That crushing defeat brought the Brunswickers to their senses and they agreed to a favourable treaty: they got a ceasefire and a small tribute for five turns in exchange of not having their Duchy...
  3. Re: ctd after wurtzburg sieges me

    Perhaps Gigantus can find something I missed but the only real error I could find was a non-specific error at the end that happens when the game crashes. It is probably a random memory error, of the...

    Re: Oopsie. Bug on my end

    If you are patched up to patch 5 this bug should not happen or it will only happen very rarely, maybe once or twice in an entire campaign if at all. Follow the recommendations above when it does. It...

    There could be no final victory for the German Protestants until the Catholic League was destroyed.

    Unfortunately, the Catholic League's possessions were sometimes in the most inconvenient places....

    Free upkeep units are basic pikemen and musketeers and basic halberdiers. After building the right buildings then you also get free upkeep for generic cuirassiers and harquebusiers (stables),...
  9. Re: [1648 mini AAR] Palatinate of the Rhein

    Thanks to both of you for making this mod possible. Needless to say I like it a lot - and the Thirty Years' War was a strange and fascinating time.

    By now, the German Empire was by far the...

    Re: sieges - AI abuse

    I do not remember ever witnessing this. The AI will normally return to the ram unless there are ladders on the walls, in which case the infantry may climb up the ladders. If the ram is destroyed they...
  15. Re: [Discussion] 1000 things we learned from BC

    Sadly there are no Indian fabrics surviving from the 12th century and I doubt there are any murals either from that period from Northern India. Byzantineboy has changed that and it is a compromise...
  16. Re: AI settings. Mod is tested at VH/VH

    The original modders probably decided to give the AI units an experience buff at the campaign level. It is the same in all levels (easy to very hard) and, as far as I know, the experience level of AI...

    1648 AAR Palatinate campaign

    Batlle difficulty: very hard
    Patched up to patch 5.

  20. Re: 2.4 Troops recruitment system

    As far as I am aware, there was no special building for hiring mercs in Christian lands, whereas there were slave barracks in Muslim lands. Mercs from non-Christian factions (Cumans, Turks and the...
  21. Re: 2.4 Troops recruitment system

    That's good. It is such a nice submod, I think no one would mind having it as part of 2.4.

    The slave system of the Muslim factions is not relevant to the Christian factions. There is no need to...

    Bohemia is probably the hardest Protestant faction and Bremen the hardest Catholic faction. All German factions are quite hard to play.

    The Kings College database of medieval prosopography has Batatzes.

    Sorry to backtrack a bit, on the spelling of Byzantine names and in the interests of consistency:

    Medieval Latin texts have Nicephorus Bryennius and Joannes (Joannis in the genitive), rather than...
  27. Re: Which faction do you like playing as the most?

    I have mixed feelings about that idea, but probably it is the best way to go. I am partly against it, since we have no fabrics surviving from that period. The styles you have chosen are of Muslim...
  28. Re: "Greek recession is over" - Are we sure about it?

    There is so much money to go around and with the introduction of the Euro there are so many Euros to go around. That is the basic equation. In the end there is that money, unless the European Central...
  29. Re: Which faction do you like playing as the most?

    Re: ERE tips

    Whoever chose the music for the various factions did a good job indeed.

    At least in my campaigns, most battles are sieges. Horse archers are probably the worst kind of unit to bring to a siege.

  33. Re: Which faction do you like playing as the most?

    The Khwarezm campaign is certainly a tough one.

    Other than that, part of the excitement in this or any other mod is in getting under the skin of a particular faction and reading on their history.

    This is not always straightforward to solve. If you use the Gracul AI, it will be about as aggressive as it can possibly be.
