    Hi everyone.

    There is one thing in IS that I am not a fan of (everything else is pretty much perfect for me). Light Infantry Doctrine allows all units to snipe while hidden and also remain hidden while moving. I don't really understand why this is the case. I get this isn't cheating (every nation has access to this) but doesn't it kind of make light infantry irrelevant? Also, I noticed the only unit that doesn't benefit from this is the generals bodyguard. Many times I have fought armies where all their artillery fire at my general (vice versa) and he either ends up killed or routs.

    Would it be possible to have feature so it can be turned off? Or maybe there is something I can in the IS files?


    Thanks.

    Sorry for the late reply, we (the developers) have all RL jobs and or lives are pretty busy right now so things sadly were slowed down.

Imperial Splendour is adding an extra layer of difficulty that I really like. Because of my bias towards playing from Early right through to Late (I love the feeling of growing an Empire from nothing - and potentially out teching others) I'm weeping over the diversion into RTR lol. I do question in a nutshell, what's the key difference from RTR over regular IS (which is still obviously a little rough polishwise)? Is it simply a period thing? Aka Early vs Late?

    Also I try to NEVER be that guy but I find that setting the most basic ballparks keeps your fans off your back when it comes to release info - but for 3.0 do you think it'll be months? Years? Even the roughest potential goal makes things easier for us fans. I'm completely ok with whatever it is, it just makes it easier for me to hunker down (like it did with DeI's development) if there's a rough time frame to help keep the dream alive. But I think TW forums have by now established a fairly good culture of not pressuring you guys too hard to meet any kind of deadlines - we know that modding is hard and subject to so many things working at once! To hold a volunteer artist accountable to create a free product by any deadline is simply entitled at that point...

    But as a veteran of TW games (Empire getting my most playtime) and mods I can safely say you guys have a good mod here with good fundamentals that shift the difficulty for people who have played Darthmod and 'ho hum' at its easiness despite its awesome cinematic type battles. But yeah, 2.2.1b's stability is its only noticeable drawback in addition to Britain's 'missing strings' in diplomacy but I know that'll improve with some love.

    It would be nice if there were togglable features like Forts on/off, Trade ship limit on/off. I found the constant battle for trade dominance was actually a nice side chapter that created an appeal to invest in Navy, even for European land focused Factions which got killed off in IS due to Tradable ship caps (but I get it was for economy balance).

    I did find the troop stats jarring particularly for Prussia (my fav faction). I understand the quality of their Line Inf and array of Elite Inf was a little lacking in addition to having worse accuracy compared to Brits given historically the Prussian Army were seen as some of the finest, most disciplined and drilled infantry of the time - I understand many nations used Prussian expats as specialist companies due to their skill? Regardless of my personal take, I love that you guys have really tried to give each faction a flavour that plays differently. (I notice the Swedes are melee juggernauts).

    I have seen some people post some pretty blunt posts occasionally - credit to you guys, you sound remarkably patient and professional in response.
    Yes, people start to behave badly in the net even if they get something free. I don't understand it but it's also part of my job to be patient and polite and actually, one doesn't win anything when starting a private feud with someone around the globe.
    To the stats, we will rework the once Pike's new battlefield mechanics are fixed in regard to the armies historical capabilities (I did a bit of that already in RotR, which of course isn't favourable to the Prussians).
    We can create such submods but as always it takes some time which is limited...
    Btw. the missing string issue should be resolved with one of the patches for 2.2.1b.
    And RotR is more than a period thing. RotR has for certain factions many more building chains and offers more reworked armies. The ships are reworked too as far as possible. Generally, speaking RotR is basically our playground to implement and test all features which shall be in v. 3.

    For any goal for version 3, I have no idea as it is a huge amount of work.

    The problem is that we lack the capacity to recreate VDM and vandants isn't active anymore so asking him for permission to use his great mod isn't possible.

    We won't add any Pirates due to historical accuracy but the Native Americans are on our list.

    Yes, there lesser possible units after the French Revolution as most of the Guards are disbanded. For the portraits, there are 12 historical generals that can be recruited and whose portraits aren't messed up if they are only recruited to fill the needs for your armies and if the Revolution is launched after recruiting Napoleon (I'll write a short guide for the next version). And yes there is a red uniform portrait set for generals from before creating historical generals. This is obviously only used for factions with red generals uniforms.

    Thanks.
    Which version are you playing? IIRC that's not the case in RotR.
    And welcome to TWC
