A first try for FIW (WIP)

Post by Geyerfalck »

Hey guys,

This is my very first try on FIW, lots of bookworming activity necessary on this one but the vanilla game is already a real gem. Modding possibilities are also terrific !
Starts to shape but a lot of cross-checking is still necessary since I added more units (for sticker variations on uniforms, unit flags, ships, Indians and various arty types) : bugs ahead !
Hopefully, it will bear fruit once OoB's are updated accordingly... :!:

Yikes! Double gob smacked!

Again I say am stunned by the level of historical immersion you add to your unit units. Especially the addition of regimental standards. I tried but failed to do this to the Seven Years War Title...

Lastly what do the red bars denote on the unit icons?

Hi !
Red bars/dashes/arrows simply denote unit facing and formation : line, extended, column. They're mirrored on unit stickers but you can have this visual information with unit counters on map.

This is for column + line formations.

And this is for extended formation.

I had tried something like that for Napoleonic Battle. But in order not to make the facing unreadable, I used round counters.
