    Default NTW2 patch and the first part of the Waterloo 1815 Scenario




    The Lordz are very proud and pleased to announce the first part of the second project for NTW2: The 1815 Waterloo Scenario. This release also includes updates and patches for our first release of NTW2: The 1812 Borodino Scenario.


    Patch, Updates and New Material

    Change log:

    NEW FACTION

    -Britain: The British faction relies on it's defensive capabilities. Their infantry is trained to shoot accurately resulting is high musket fire damage for all their standard line infantry. In additional, they have access to units of riflemen, experienced marksmen who can shoot accurately way beyound musket range. These units can force an enemy to come out and attack. Their selection of cavalry and artillery is rather limited, but their 9 pounders have a larger canister range.

    NEW UNITS

    -French Middle Guard: Almost identical to the former Old Guard unit, the latter now have higher morale and inspire nearby troops but are MUCH more expensive
    -French Red Lancers: Simular to the Polish Guard lances, but lightly less attack and slightly better defense
    -Russian Unicorn Artillery: Can fire round-shot and howitzer shells - no canister
    -20 British units

    NEW MAPS

    -Flanders Fields: a map set in the new European climate, open fields with lots of villages
    -Hilltop Havoc: also set in the new climate, featuring a large hill in the middle of the map with a village on top of it
    -6 (unofficial) maps made by community members

    MISC

    -Additional music pieces
    -Kick button is back in MP setup
    -Updated animations

    FIXES

    -Floating buildings fixed
    -Some text editing
    -Various minor other fixes

    BALANCE CHANGES

    -Line infantry cheaper, elites and lights more expensive
    -Cavalry charge more effective
    -Light inf more fragile to cavalry
    -Lower cannonball velocity, higher accuracy, range increased
    -Pavlov grenadiers now have normal reload speed
    -Russian Guard much better in h2h combat, but more expensive
    -Grenadiers and other melee oriented infantry much more effective at charging
    -Units much more vulnerable to an attack in the back
    -Officer units lost the "Eagle" morale bonus, now use their special ability only to improve morale

    I love the british, great job guys. Also, about the rockets, the sound effects, the trail everything is great. But there seems to be no impact sfx in place at all. Is this intentional or a bug?

    Just remember, the lingering smoke can create some serious lag, so look around the field a lot to prevent it.

    The floating buildings aren't gone. At least in the battle map editor they still occur. The new smoke is very good and is not such a fps killer as you mentioned. The new faction is great. Having a lot of fun right now. Thanks again for this great mod.

    Noticed something about the description of the British Highlanders, it isn't about them. It's about the hussars instead. Maybe fix it for the next version.

    yes the waterloo map wasnt going to be in this pack (i think) but if you check the screenshots thread LzoF shown screenshots of the new building model that they're making that they're gonna use for the waterloo map when the United Dutch-Netherland pack is released
