But I can't choose the place of the battle at all .The enemy being somewhere doesn't withdraw to a nonforested area .And the trees hint you give orders and see well what's happening .You can win win in most of the cases but yet it is annoying .
yer i know what you mean drac. i hate wooded battles. the AI can see all whereas our view is BADLY impared by trees.
ambushes are fun to do though...
i just really wish that someone could change the coding for trees in battle so they are highly opaque. i would REALLY REALLY really really realllllly love that. but its probably an impossibly... *sigh*
But the amount of trees on the strat_map is probably more historically correct as European forests used to be huge.
actually on the topic of forests in the battle maps:
i was in a battle the other day in greece (near olympia statue of zeus) where i ordered my men through an area of trees. Some got stuck as two or three trees were so close together they made an almost 'u' or 'v' shape where the men and cavalry got stuck in the gap- so i had to get the remaining men in the units to circle where the men were stuck to get them free... probably just where two areas of trees were merged.
wasnt all that bad though. if it happens again ill take screen pics for proof.

In SPQR however which I play at the moment a mine owning city can be 10 times more profitable than any port/dockyard city etc .
The only thing that annoys me, is that the trees are so frickin' big. They look like sequoia's! They are way too big, at least 30 times bigger than a man.

BTW I saw a mod which once incorporated you fight IN the surroundings of the wonders CLOSELY -like the Alexandrias Pharos .The mod puts the battle in front of the wonder,not just to see it in the distance .In Olympia it was in the fence perimeter near the walls of the temple of Zeus ...Looks great on the screenshots . Why don't you incorporate it in your mod ?
