    Wind/Grass

    Will wind play a factor in ballistics? If so I think it would be a great feature if sharpshooters/Skirms could throw grass up or something like that to see the direction and strength of the wind.

    Agreed, that would be great but seeing what way the wind blows the grass on the field or the tree limbs/leaves would also work.

    I think that might be a bit too in-depth, if they implement Windage it'll probably be some UI indicator telling you which way it's blowing (But I get the feeling they will only implement Bullet drop) though it would be a really nice touch if Foliage/smoke from Fires blew the way it was actually blowing.

    Could be good for arty too. Though obviously only applicable for long range shooting.... 500m +

    Though random wind or customisable wind types should be in the game. It'll make line engagement much more immersive. And if they implement officers on horseback then they'll have the advantage of a better field of view.

    Foliage and smoke do indeed follow the the direction the wind is blowing.

    Wow! That is bloody impressive O.O God I can't wait for this game to be released. I would guess that bullets effected by wind would be in another boat, and just become far too technical to pull off.. but who knows what magic these guys can pull off

    I think that would take way to long to make and in order to play you would have to have 8 fingers on each hand

    why would you need 8 fingers on each hand to maybe press a button to see the direction of the wind and use the mouse to adjust your aim

    Why it have to be a button? look to the color bearer then you can see how the wind blows
