    You'd find it far more problematic if they made them destructable.......when 150 (and possibly 200 PLUS artillery) players are slamming shots into them, splinters all over, and you've got an FPS of 1.

    At this juncture I realise that I'm wasting my breath, but I BEG you to re-consider turning on friendly fire with artillery, trolls are bad enough with muskets, I shudder to think what they'll do...

    Is it, furling the colours in the middle of a battle is historical accuracy? I'd love to see your sources for that. At sunset, yes, on the march, yes, rest breaks, yes....in battle? Would furling the...

    Several studies have come to the conclusion that, traditionally, American soldiers have been reluctant to use the bayonet, preffering instead to 'club' their rifles. One such study into US troops...

    I'm sorry but Antietam WAS fought by lines of standing soldiers, and this is a game about Antietam, not Cold Harbour.

    I think an historical game only has to represent what was 'typical'. You can find examples of a lot of things, lying down as you stated, Jacksons troops at Bull Run or the Union troops in front of...

    That's a fair comment, but it's problematical of the modern mindset trying to play a game set in the 1800's is it not? Players are prone to fixating, in particular, on one thing that was never a part...
