Is it possible to play this mod in multiplayer if both users have it installed and enabled?
Probably, yes. Don't play Conquest map with it enabled though.
yeah, i know what you mean, for my own sengoku campaigns, i give all ashigaru units 150% of their standard numbers while keeping the costs the same. all the rest (samurai, monks, artillery, special, ...) i keep at standard unit size.2) Sengoku Jidai saw the rise of the Ashigaru class.
I find it difficult to digest in all the mods around that the unit sizes are comparable (in Radious we have 150 Ashi against 120 Samurai). The clan specific recruitment could come handy though I don't like unit caps at least a size ratio of 1/3 should do. I used to have a table based on historical research with an astounding result of the Hojo right like the Oda using hordes of Ashigaru (I tried to retrieve this study which was posted here on TWC somewhere, I reposted it on S2r+ but can't find it... and I lost my HD last month so I lost all my links...).
units of 375 ashigaru vs 160 samurai at vanilla cost seems to work great for me. quality armies can outperform large armies and zerg armies can overwhelm quality armies.
and yes, i expect a historical army (by the time of sekigahara) to have at least 2 to 3 times as many ashigaru as samurai. more samurai early on, more ashigaru due to Oda's 'reforms' which allowed him to take control over 1/3rd of japan by fielding larger armies, utilizing large numbers of semi-trained peasants, which was just 'not done' until then, in the later part of the campaign.
I think that the tech tree research times should be lowered, though I am open to any changes. Overall, its pretty fun.
Some bug reports:
- Bow Samurai do not fire when placed behind walls. They will either stand still holding an air katana, or will stand with their arms stretched out.
- When fighting in a sea battle in the rain, enemy bow kobaya can use flaming arrows, while mine cannot.
- Archers on boats have the matchlock sound, and there is also the cannon looking icon on the flags for the boats.
- I'm not sure if military buildings are giving me the correct amount of Bushido bonus for research. Currently, I have +3 into Poet, giving me 12% bonus. But I have a both a bow samurai and katana samurai building, offering no bonuses.
Hey man! GREAT mod, I mean REALLY great mod. Just a couple of things are a little annoying. 1) The tech tree has very long research turns, too much for me. I would kindly ask if you could just reduce the time or give more turns per year (like 12 or 24) 2) I think ashigarus are MAYBE too weak against samurai, I mean i know that the samurai was and individual warrior who train all his life but i think ashigaru should hold up a bit more.. That would be all, if you can make those changes I would be very pleased.
Thank you all, this is a great site! Keep it up!
