Congrats to both of you infidels.
The gameplay videos clearly show how overpowered cavalry and especially the horse archers are in vanilla M2TW.
It's a tricky thing to get realistic cavalry...

Yea, but you got to admit, it was pretty shocking to see a knife best the spear regardless:shocked:
Absolutely true, what I am fighting against is the claim that the spear is simply a superior...
February 25, 2015, 04:28 PM
The one where the man wielding a knife defeats the spear 6 - 2?
Just as I said before, in such sparrings people often judge simple touches and taps of the spear as end blows...and even with that...
February 25, 2015, 04:13 PM
Yes, they did require room because the back end of the spear shaft does not disappear into another dimension when you retract your thrust.
It's a long wooden shaft with a metal pointy end...it...

Hello I am double post.
I am a mistake.

When playing Third Age Total War(Mos) three years ago;
I got into a siege against the Wild men to the south playing as Eriador/Arnor. I had no troops to spare because the orcs got me busy up north...

That range advantage is what?
Half a meter?
So you are basically claiming that during that single step it takes for a line of swordsmen or axemen to get into a closer position in which they have...

That comment was not meant for you, it was just a general overview of the recent flood of "spears rulzzz" threads and videos.
Unlike the vast majority of others who have done this, you actually gave...

The speartips were made of even lower quality iron and the probability of having a spear shaft broken in an engagement is also a factor to be considered.
That is entirely and absolutely not...
February 25, 2015, 07:51 AM
I would disagree, it is far more difficult(requires more room) to properly use a spear in close formation than an axe or sword.
These kind of conclusions are derived from modern reenactments and...
Go to your export_descr_unit file and to achieve realism modify all horse arches to deal a reduced 2-3 missile damage and reduce their range to 70-90.
Next reduce the ridiculous high...

Well I mentioned units from the former roster so yes, I was talking about the battlefield banners carried by soldiers in units :)
I see from the screens that the strat changes are a sure thing.
February 19, 2015, 11:16 AM
Will the conversion to the HRE also affect the banners of those units that remain from the former roster?

Sticky: Re: >> The Great Conflicts map.
Just made some historical coastal corrections for no other reason apart of my desire to make a statement...and even there I am being very, very generous to the...

That "obsolete" armor was still pretty hard to penetrate, as well was the padding underneath.
A combination of both still meant that there was little chance of lethal arrow/bolt penetration.
February 14, 2015, 08:03 AM
Well, they did cause a tremendous amount of casualties to a numerically superior Ottoman force though, regardless of all the poor decisions made that day.
Pretty much the exact story as in the...
February 13, 2015, 07:22 PM
Those are 15th century amateur reproductions, the 16th century jousting armors look completely different, and I love how you completely avoided the topic of the usage of full contact lances against...
February 13, 2015, 04:27 PM
Oh I know a fairly decent amount about the parliamentary acts of Henry IV don't you worry, however it is a wide known fact that that act, as all others of its type was not followed by most armories...

Hahaha you are amazing:baby:
You make me a sad panda.
Pretty thick straws for a straw-man, so thick he would definitely stand his ground in winds that would blow your straw-man away.
February 12, 2015, 09:31 PM
So which one do I modify?
All of them?
February 12, 2015, 08:50 PM
Sure thing, like I have nothing better to antagonize you.
That is just horribly absolute of you to say.
It is not redundant, it is shocking, borderline appalling to any archery enthusiast,...

I believe people are making a huge mistake comparing fortifications of Asia and those of Europe.
It is wrong to level as a similar factor of defense the fortified settlements of the East and a...

If the Mongols actually encountered a professional feudal force of equal size they would have extreme problems with dealing with it.
Of the entire force send by the Templar order...

Whelp, my arguments have been shot down and my opinion has been changed.
Helpful thread I might say.
February 07, 2015, 10:09 AM
Well, regardless of how inconvenient the truth is, it was still ze Germans.
Because the German economy could not support Hitlers dreams.
They had the transportation technology for motorized...

What is the purpose of "battle_models_long_LOD" and "battle_models_short_LOD" in the bugfix compilation?
What effect do those files to modifying the battle_models file itself?
February 05, 2015, 04:00 PM
You are correct.
I retreat my statement.
However my opinion still remains to a certain extent.
It is very difficult to equate ancient soldiers, who, by using melee weapons, relied purely on...
February 05, 2015, 09:40 AM
Well, now that you mention it, longswords were, for the most part, only avg. 1.1–1.8 kg (2.4–4.0 lb)...2kg is already greatsword territory :whistling
I wasn't trying to correct you, just further...

That is true for the New Age and the centuries after the Middle Ages during which protein consumption fell drastically due to, among other reasons, urbanization and population increase which was not...

That is an ongoing myth which is a result of modern minds imagining experiences of people in the past.
There are barely any sources describing heat problems, exhaustion or situations where...

My music overhaul mod has a few amazing byzantine chants;
...if anyone is interested:showoff:
And what about replacing the map by using a campaign map of a submod of the same mod?
For instance, I am interested in replacing the Stainless Steel campaign map with the one used by SSHIP(a submod...

I am considering using SSHIP for a late era game build by modifying it to my taste.
Currently I am wondering, considering the new units that were added for the SSHIP(which is early...

Out of all those amazing models I actually find the gambeson horse armor for Crusader mounts the most impressive one :)
You have to be sure that you set winter as the starting season in your descr_strat file.
At the end of the start_date line;
start_date 1420 winter
Have you done so?

Yes, except there is not a single mention in the history of plate usage of an arrow or bolt ever penetrating plate armor and killing its user.
Not a single one.
Yes, and all of those factors...

Any news on the next version?
I am creating another Stainless Steel game build :)
I assume this is perfectly compatible with Titanium?
