Mod Announcement - For Honour and Glory

Cool.

Did Polish use some sort of troops specialised in ambushes and so (like assassins and so, these could be perhaps good addition to the game).

In earlier times there were probably some woodland scouts armed with bows, but later no specific units were used.

Of course it doesn't mean that suprise wasn't use as a decisive factor for example

at Swiecino in 1462 Polish cavalry attacked Teutonic horsemen and later disengaged them at signal, moved on side clearing the space between suprised Tutonic mercenaries and Hussiate infantry which shot them to pieces at very close range.

at Orsza in 1514 a unit of infantry was kept hidden on the right flank. They waited with handguns and cannons ready until they were given the order to fire. The sudden salvo smashed Russian cavalry there and allowed Lithuanian-Polish forces to smash them easily and win the entire battle - one of the worst defeats in Russian history.

Could you also provide some pictures or links, please?

OK

early cavalry

Knights

Legnica 1241

Plowce 1321

Tannenberg 1410 - you have also foot crossbowman and the lithuanian cavalryman from the right is perfect for the Mazowiecka Konnica.

infantry very early - the guy with spear is good for Tarczownik but needs a shield.

Nice pictures.

If you wish, you can spam this thread with ideas, pics ... whatever. It will be welcommed.

There is my picture of improved Clibanarius.

I didn't have much time to work on it, so improvement isn't that significant.

The mod ends in 1492, Husaria appeared in 1575-77 after earlier armoured Hussars ( improved Racowie) were reformed by Stephen Bathory. :D

@Belisarivs

I have a small request. I am preparing the additional campaign for the last edition of PMTW for MTW VI and I am adding Bohemian rebels of 1618-22 uprising.

I need couple of simple translations - plural and singular

Pikeman/men

Moravian Cavalry

Reiter/-s

-the full roster will be looking like this:

Musketyri

Pikemen (bodyguard unit)

Zemska Hotovost (infantry)

Zemska Hotovost (cavalry)

Reiters

Moravian Cavalry

+ various mercenaries, common and German units

Regards Cegorach :)

Arent you forgoting the winged hussars?

Not at all.

If I forgot them (which is very highly improbable), Cegorah wouldn't forget them at all.

Husaria belong to the 16th century, or so. This is perhaps timeframe of Colonial 0AD mod.

I didnt know that

But some ideas for a new civ:

PORTUGAL:

Infantry:

Arcabuzeiro

54C001_1.jpg

Piqueiro

R_fig01.jpg

Besteiro do conto

R-73.jpg

Cavalry:

Lanceiro de avis

1314534-sm.jpg

Cavaleiro de cristo(its a portuguese "officer",but it can give to us a idea for a look)

54C006_1.jpg

Espingardeiro

54C003_1.jpg

Latter i post more

Pikeman/men

Singular - Kopiník

Plural - Kopiníci

or

Singular - Pikanýr

Plural - Pikanýři

Both regard to Pikemen, but that latter regards to Picaneers. So, it would perhaps fit better.

Moravian Cavalry

Singular - Moravský jezdec

Plural - Moravští jezdci

Reiter/-s

Singular - Jezdec

Plural - Jezdci

Eventually (I'm not sure if it will fit the time frame) you could try translation of Hussar.

Singular - Husar

Plural - Husaři

If you see screwed text instead of Czech symbols, you could try to use UTF-8 or Latin2 (iso8859-2) encoding.

Or just report it.

To Abadu:

Cool pics, but count with fact, that time starts around 1000. So perhaps some early stage units won't hurt.

Personally, I don't like gunpowder units. I'm thinking about making game end sooner than those become more widespread.

This would also perhaps solve tiny problem with Hussite soldiers fighting on Polish side (it isn't ahistorical, but actually I'm not in love with idea of Hussites serving in Polish army and not servig in Bohemian, both are real but make it somehow weird).

Well,the great problem is to find early portuguese units,but i will try,in fact,the portuguese used many arquebuisers(arcabuzeiro) early,so,have them wont hurt

arqueiro(archer)

Find pictures of portuguese soldiers is very hard,so i will post oficers and kings to we base units:

D Afonso Henrique,portuguese king(cavaleiro de cristo)

D. Nun’Álvares Pereira(some pikeman/axeman/maceman)

A portuguese knight(lanceiro)

To Abadu:

Good job. You perform cool research.

Now lets make some models. :)

Could you please post just links to the larger images? Those pics are nice ingeed, but they make heavy load for server 0AD is in (keep in mind that this thread is visited quite often).

I mean, I like these images, but webmaster won't.

If I could ask you to look also for origial names. I mean, I'm not into naming arabic units by english names (like heavy cavalry or so).

Just if you managed to find some real names.

No more civs need to be done for now. I will have enough work to do. Thank you for work.

I'd like also to know how upgrades will be in game (but I know that you can't answer me). Whether it will be like in TW series where units simply existed in certain epochs or whether it is like in AoK.

Just curious, are you skilled/interested in 3d modelling and texturing?

If yes, perhaps you could give a Blender a try. Personally, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not much advanced modeller and I will perhaps modell everything alone.

Well modelling isn't that hard. But texturing is actually much harder. Just take some painting tool for it and you have ll necessary equipment.

But model needs to be done before, it must be unwrapped so texture fits on it well. Then texture template needs to be exported. Afther this you can edit that template and then put it on model.

Perhaps you could contact me via jabber and ask or give me some ideas.

Unfortunatelly, I will be active mostly at weekends due to university studies.

*whew* That was a lot of image links. I replaced the images in Abadu's posts with links to the images.

Guys, please try not to post more than a few images in a post, at least until we add an automatic image resizer to the forum. Thanks.

EDIT:Belisarvs:unfortunaly,im not good at modeling :) ,i already tried to use the blender,but i dont know what the "small words" make,i can only make a line and spin the original circle in blender :D

But do you have a site where i can learn how to use the blender?

Yeah. FirePowa8, you made good point.

That was what I started with. I'm far to be expert in it, so don't feel ashamed.

If you are confused or so, I'm thinking about writing some Quick Blender start which will guide you to the point you'll be able to create some basic modells.

See my model I've posted. That is the poind you'll reach with it.

You are welcommed to ask me via jabber. However, I'll be available only at weekend (well, now I should be at home in thursday - Sunday, but it is unusual) though as University keeps me busy.

Thanks, man. :) I'm still working on that first human model.

By the way, this might be a stupid question, but how do you zoom in on any place you want? I can only zoom in on the centre.

I'm not sure if I understand you well, but I'd try to press and hold middle mouse button (or wheel) and move with your mouse.

Press also numbers 0, 1, 3, 5, 7 to switch view. Buttons 2, 4, 6, 8 will rotate.

Rtead through that guide. It will teach you a lot.

So, you installed Blender and did some setting. Now you are unsatissfied with it and want to set it back?

Hm, I don't know where Blender saves it's settings in Windows. I use it only in Linux.

BTW, if I can suggest using jabber instead of this thread for this purpose ...

It is quite simple.

As a bonus I'll be able to answer immediatelly.

If you need help to set it up, my ICQ is 289601727, but I almost don't use it. Personally, I don't like it at all. I keep it for backwards compatibility with those delayed ;) and try to persuade them to switch to jabber instead of those insecure, crappy, proprietary communication protocoles.
