Hi Folks,

I'm really new to Age III. I just played the demo. I liked it but the military formations and options seemed real basic.

I had two quick questions.

1.) Besides all the new features in the MOD is there anything specific in the MOD that addresses military options and features ? ( Example - will there be officers etc.. that give bonuses and will the formations be tweaked. When I put the units on stand ground or defense they crouched down in a circle which I thought was a bit unusual )

2.) Should I just get the Age III game or should I wait until they release a Gold Pack with the War Chiefs etc..? Does that have better military features ?

Thanks - jg1234

they are re-doing the formations, so dont worry about the old ones. They were thinking of using banner carriers and drummers, but I guess they didnt like it.

Hi Folks,

I finally received my copy of Age of Empires III ( vanilla ) and after patching to version 1.09 was going to install NE version 1.00. I had two follow up questions.

1.) Is Kastor's Formation MOD v 2.0 included in this awesome Mod ?

2.) Will later version of Napoleonic Era still be playable with just the vanilla version ?

Thanks in advance - jg1234

I agree with you about the formations. Age II had a better system for units, especially because the formations (square, spread-out, etc.) were separate from tactics (defensive, offensive, idle, etc.)
