    For those who have downloaded both the new FAUST and FUSIL, please let me know your preference - unit tables or unit pictures?

    Thanks for the commentary.

    Dito.

    The pictures are nice because the stats table that came with the game (once again, I have to say) is far from being comprehensive (I really begin to wonder why they bother including it at all - I'd rather see CA host an updated PDF for download...), so you can't see all faction's units.
    I do need to pics though, so I can memorize the units better (mostly for enemy units, because I cannot be bothered to check out each enemy unit's detail before battle, I only look at the big picture to get an idea of how many archers, spearmen etc).

    The table is much better suited for direct comparison, though, so I can estimate how one unit would fare against a specific other.

    It would be absolutely outstanding if you managed to mix those two somehow



    That said, I know it's too much to ask, but if the guide was somehow interactive (now, this certainly does not work with PDF) so you can tick specific units for a direct comparison or work with two scrolling frames above and below or similar, you would even outdo yourself! :p

    Oh, and seeing as I already complained about CA, if you could do a similar things for the building trees, that would be ace
    The in-game system is ok, I guess (I also loved Civ's Civiliopaedia), but I like having a hardcopy, or a second display so it doesn't block my game view.

    Hi great work

    May I check with you what the "bodkin" stat at the Appendix C, is referring to? Which units actually use this?

    Also just curious how did you arrive at the accuracy values?

    Thanks..

    Fantastic!

    I've already printed, laminated, and put into a 3 ring binder!

    Thanks!

    The pics are also helpful in letting you see all game units as they are in vanilla, meaning you can more easily compare to modded skins like Burrek's.

    YOU ARE A GOD!! I downloaded both because I like the extended details and stats, but also, having the picture so that I can distinguish them is nice, and, it's just a really great package. Love that you included merc units also!! *bows down to your almighty FAUST/FAUSIL power*

    @ lindy

    the bodkin arrow is a sharp pointed arrowhead used for penetrating armor versus a regular broadhead arrow used for causing wounds.
    It is available to the following units:

    French Mounted Archers
    Longbowmen
    Yeoman Archers
    Sherwood Archers
    Scots Guard
    Dismounted Longbowmen
    Dismounted French Archers
    Welsh Longbowmen Merc
    Free Company Longbowmen

    The accuracy "values" or stars I have listed were an interpretation of the values given in the descr_projectile.text (ref: accuracy_vs_units) The values run from 0.05 for a regular arrow to 0.00001 extreme for the bodkin arrow. The lower the value the more accurate the missile. the composite bows and gunpowder were at 0.001. These values are not readily understandable so I put them into four relative groups or "stars" - adequate to know which is more accurate. (Since few units have the bodkin I will consider labelling them the next time.)

    By the way, you should expect the bodkin arrow to be deadly at long range.

    Cheers
