  1. It's a pity that the crossbow is a controlled weapon in China. I can't find a reliable demonstration video, but the European crossbow has a similar method of use. I saw a video like this on Bilibili:https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1Mv411T7tF?spm_id_from=333.337.search-card.all.click&vd_source=2663ebbf44c70d76f9642aab41b719ad It should be noted that the pull distance of the Chinese crossbow is longer than that of the European crossbow. For this point, you can refer to the picture of the stone carving above.
  2. Chinese people generally feel that the film's expression is too exaggerated and unrealistic.
  3. Usually horses or chariots, if it is an emperor like Liu Bang, he may ride a chariot. If it is Wei Qing, a general should be riding a horse, and their weapons can be bows and arrows or Ji.
  4. "蹶张JueZhang" or "踏张TaZhang", the main feature is that it is larger than the general crossbow, but there is no obvious difference in structure.
  5. 1. Crossbow cavalry should be abolished. 2. There should be a citizen infantry crossbowman using a common crossbow. 3. There should be a champion infantry crossbowman using "JueZhang".
  6. In the Han Dynasty, I have already said that the crossbow with small power is easy to learn, and the crossbow with great power requires both hands and feet to operate. I don't understand what is difficult to understand.
  7. In reality, there are elite crossbowmen. The crossbow used by these people must be used with both hands and feet to be opened, and the power is stronger than that of the bow. After about the Sui and Tang dynasties, because people generally used bows, the original crossbows with low power, which were only convenient for learning, were eliminated. From the Sui and Tang Dynasties to the Ming Dynasty, only the powerful crossbows remained.
  8. I have repeated many times, the Han army's elite crossbowmen are only infantry, because they can use their legs and waist to open a powerful crossbow. Cavalry cannot use powerful crossbows, but only the weakest crossbows. These crossbows are weaker than bows. In a dynasty like the Qin Dynasty that adopted a general conscription system, the cavalry used crossbows because the quality of the riders was not high and they could not use bows and arrows. In the Han Dynasty, this was very rare. The cavalry generally used the bow, and the bow used by the cavalry was more powerful than the crossbow, and the speed of the bow was faster. Therefore, it is impossible to have any champion crossbow cavalry. In reality, only champion cavalry archers, and only novice cavalry with the worst riding skills will use crossbows.
  9. So far, only 6 of the 50 U.S. states, Delaware, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania, have completely banned child marriage, and 4 of these 6 states are in Laws just changed in 2020 and 2021. Child marriage is legal in 44 other states.
  10. Westerners also eat crocodiles. I used to watch TV shows where American hunters shot crocodiles and made them into croquettes to share with family and neighbors.
  11. It may also be the helmets worn by the Assyrians or some other peoples. The Persians and the Medes were archers, and their habit of wearing breastplates without helmets now seems strange.
  12. If we want the Persian faction to have more professional melee infantry, adding Assyrian infantry is a good choice.
  13. Actually in my opinion one should do a dedicated Assyrian spearman and then have the sparabara as a switch form of the archer, and then like you said, an infantry that is more resistant to projectile weapons but is more vulnerable in melee combat .
  14. Siege towers that can only attack buildings, and walls with very high fire resistance.
  15. My suggestion is to make siege towers only attack buildings, then replace normal arrows with flaming arrows, and of course, set different fire resistances for all buildings.
  16. In my impression, the spabara do not seem to be spearmen in the general impression, they are also archers themselves. According to Herodotus's account, the Persian infantrymen all carried wicker shields, bows and spears, that is to say, the Persian infantrymen were all archers with shields and spears, except that the archers in the first row did not shoot arrows during battle. It is to cover the comrades behind with shields and spears. If he is killed, the soldiers in the second row can also use their shields and spears to fill the vacancies in the first row. Of course, the army of the Persian Empire was not only of Persians, but also of many other ethnic groups. Those ethnic groups had specialized spearmen, such as the Assyrians. According to Herodotus, they were still armed as in the late Assyrian Empire. He wears a bronze helmet, linen armor, and holds an Egyptian-style shield, as well as a sword, spear, and mace.
  17. Because in real history, the ministry building (Guanshu) and the civic center are one building. Or, if you are unwilling to give up any architectural models, then I suggest changing the current ministry building to the Imperial Palace (Weiyanggong) to represent the central government, and the civic center to the official hall (Guanshu) to represent the local government. The palace can train heroes and issue central decrees; the official hall can train local officials.
  18. In reality, only men in the UK can practice archery to become archers. So if we really want to give Persian civilians a bow and arrow to strengthen it, then we can only make a male Persian civilian with a bow and arrow. If we introduce the design of male and female civilians, then we can only delete the Persian women's shape , leaving only one type of male civilian with more fighting power, like the "Coureur des Bois" in Age of Empires 3 France.
  19. I agree, and I think there should be two halos with different maintenance efficiency for small fishing boats and large merchant ships and warships. I designed this in the "mirror" mod.
  20. In this case, I don't think it is necessary to make a separate Scythian female warrior unit, just make the Scythian soldiers have both male and female appearances like male and female civilians.
  21. Yes, women of other ethnic groups are not incapable of fighting, there is such a thing in the Han Dynasty, seven sisters in a family were armed with JI, shields, bows and swords after their father and brother were murdered by corrupt officials. With Gouxiang (a shield with iron tips and hooks), who ambushed and killed officials to avenge father and brother, the story has been celebrated and sung to this day as a classic case of blood relatives' revenge.
  22. If resistance with any weapon is justified, or that's the problem, other peoples also hunt with javelins or boomerangs, so why not add these weapons to them for self-defense? Why not give them a chopping axe so they can chop down their enemies? In addition, when mentioning this kind of education in ancient times, the default is to refer to men, unless women are specifically mentioned, the Han Dynasty also recorded that Xiongnu people learned to ride horses and bows and arrows since childhood, but they only refer to men, and women of nomadic people may ride horses for herding. , but with the exception of the Scythians, they rarely fought with bows and arrows. And the Persians are not nomads. Their men practiced combat skills from a young age in order to serve the king in the military. Therefore, the king gave the Persians tax-free, and the Persians who were recruited into the army were also men, so women did not need to learn these. Skills that have nothing to do with economic production.
  23. Yes, there is no need to construct an anti-reality stereotype in order to design a "national trait" for the Persians in the game.
  24. Daggers are a special case, because daggers were tools that people would carry with them when they went out, whether it was for self-defense or for cutting food. This has not changed in the Middle Ages, just like people in modern times will carry their mobile phones with them when they go out. And even if they didn't carry a dagger, they would pick up roadside branches and use them as clubs, or pick up stones from the ground and throw them at the enemy.
  25. But the reality of the Han Dynasty is like this. If you feel that it is breaking the balance, then don't make this faction at all. Moreover, the variety of soldiers destroys the balance, and the game makes the advantages of swordsmen and sword cavalry too obvious, and I think they should be made less important.
