    Default Organ Gun and 64 lber MOVING artillery + canister + shrapnel

    Hey guys,

    Check out http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...48#post6407348 for my tutorial on how to convert fixed artillery to foot artillery.

    I made a little mod here that converts the stationary Organ Gun and 64-lber artillery units to foot artillery units. I also added canister/shrapnel shot to the Organ Gun and canister shot to the 64-lber artillery. Note that although the 64-lber artillery has 6 horses, it's not horse artillery! It won't move fast! I decided to use 6 horses for aesthetic reasons--those guns look pretty dang heavy.

    Should work for just about any mod, since the files I'm including only cover those units for Ottomons and Marathas.

    I'm still not sure whether or not a simple mod of the DLC units is okay or not; if not, please let me know and I'll replace this mod with one that does just the 64-lbers. Just as a disclaimer, this mod does not unlock the Organ Gun, obviously. At least, I don't think it does.

    Some screenies:

    Reserved for another mod release.

    I was going to release a vanilla version of the Crackling Fire mods that you see in IS and in beta in TROM--instead of volley fire, you get one massive burst of fire from all the soldiers, followed by essentially fire-at-will. Researching firing solutions like fire by rank replaces crackling fire.

    But with the new DLC, it'd be better to wait until I can modify the DLC units as well. I'm planning to make a Tighter Formations-compatible and plain 'ole vanilla versions. Inspiration comes from the aforementioned mods and the help I was given in Mod Workshop for figuring out how "crackling fire" works...so if the makers of the original IS/TROM mods don't want me to release this vanilla version (eventually), they just need to let me know and I'll keep for only my personal use instead.

    You can...but as far as I know, the shells move in a parabolic arc like as if you're firing from a howitzer, not a cannon. So it looks really, really awkward!

    *bump*

    Changed the title so it's less misleading. The Ottoman organ gun and 64-lber can definitely move. "Foot artillery" for the uninitiated may mean the same as static artillery, I realized...

    one should be able to change the trajectory of exploding shell. they weren't just shot from howitzers back in the day.

    You would think so, right?

    Unfortunately, I have no idea how to mod this, you'd have to ask one of the real modding experts.

    If someone ever does find out though, then it would be a breeze to make Russian Unicorn guns for ETW.
