Thread: Ambush deployment zone mod v1.0 (ROTS compatible)

  1. #1

    Default Ambush deployment zone mod v1.0 (ROTS compatible)

    AMBUSH MOD v1.0

    This mod changes the ambush deployment zones to be right next to the enemy deployment area. This makes ambushes a lot more worthwhile than in vanilla where the AI will have enough time to regroup before your troops arrive.



    This mod is especially useful for mods which slow down the battle movement speeds, which unfortunately also make the vanilla deployment zones even more useless. This mod should be compatible with just about anything. To install, unzip the download and place the .pack file into your total war shogun 2 data folder.

    interseting sounds like a big help if they have a lot of heavy troops and you only have light ones

    The ambush mod is really great. In the next version of TROM3 I removed the ability to deploy anywhere on the battlefield from the Hattori standard units, but made the faction better in ambushing instead. This fits perfectly to this mod.

    is possible to do the same for siege ? would be very interesting set archers and screens near enough to be useful . it would be historical and very fun

    Most impressive.

    As a related question.. is it possible to mod siege battles where the besieged party tries to break out, such that the map used is still a siege map rather than an open field map?

    As far as I know this should be ROTS compatible. Please tell me if you encounter errors.

    Awesome! Will give it a try right away, cause the current ambush is more like a regularly battle only with different deployment zones and the AI manages to always get a decent defense line til your troups are in melee range.
    (reminds me at my N:TW ambush battles...Oh hell did I love them howitzer + canister-arty = boom ^^)

    @Betto: That would indeed be awesome, especially in combination with a mod that always allows you to deploy your defences (but apparently nobody's had any luck with that one) Great idea, and great ambush mod!
