    Very sorry if this question has already been answered but will there be a certain amount of ammunition for artillery, possibly making people or officers think when and when not to use artillery so not to waste it so it doesn't get spammed.

    Regards,

    Artillery is modeled with the exact loadout of ammunition in the ammo chests for the particular gun.

    In this case : 6lb and 3 inch varity, 50 rounds, 12 Pdr 32. Etc.

    Sad that I can't at least be a fly on the wall for the developmental process of the batteries. This is an area where I wouldn't be able to offer much expertise but that I am greatly interested in and would probably learn a good deal.

    The information for artillery is freely offered online - All one has to do is look and read.

    I'm assuming that the different artillery pieces will have different ballistics and projectiles, so say the rifles won’t be as effective with cannister as the smoothbores (or even very limited use of cannister to avoid messing up the rifling)? Probably didn’t need to ask this since you guys have done a very detailed job with the other elements of the game! But as an artillery re-enactor I’m looking forward to this update.

    In addition, will it be a notable priority in fixing/maintaning/updating or will other things come before it?
    The chances are by the time you have finished typing a long response to my post, I have changed half of the original post.

    Yes there will be different ballistics and projectiles based on what kind of cannon you're using. Currently, however we're focusing on getting the 3-inch ordinance game ready.

    We hope so but no guarantees!

    I'd be extremely surprised if the initial implementation of artillery didn't require quite a bit of fixes.
