    That document is more than ten years old now With RR there is actually quite a lot going on, but since it mostly uses normal game mechanisms its pretty much transparent to the user. But you can see that the 9 unit categories do have quite a big effect on recruitment, and that all the relevant values are what they are for a consistent set of reasons.

    Reading it is good because it gives you an understanding of this, and I think that increases your enjoyment of the mod; whereas the workings of RC are pretty obvious, for most people RR is more nebulous - yet back when it was being designed and implemented, I probably put more time into it, if anything. Partly this is because I saw RR as providing a more in-depth and realistic context for RC. It isn’t much use having a realistic combat mod if the unit prices and recruitment make little sense, because then army compositions will reflect reality less.

    For example, unit prices reflect the cost to the faction of recruiting and paying for them, rather than geing calculated on their basis of their stats at all.

    I’m not looking forward to implementing it for the new factions in the Late Era campaign, its a hell of a lot of work, much more than RC. Need to juggle all the different recruitment factors for the available units, and then that is further modified by the event-driven unit transitions. Its mind bending haha.

    Combining RR with all the recruitment stuff in BGRIV (and they were specifically designed to work together) makes for a very complex and dynamic picture.
