    Artillery Historical Error Fix/Photographer Class Suggestion

    I've noticed that in the screenshots for the Artillery that there's a slight historical error in that the #1 man (sponger) covers his ear (left) that is facing AWAY from the cannon leaving his (right) ear completely exposed to the blast of the cannon which would cause extreme hearing loss.

    Historically the #1 would cover his ear that is facing the cannon.

    You can see a good example of this in this video with live fire canister at the timestamp 4:11.

    For the sake of historical authenticity I'd like to see this detail improved.

    Also just as a suggestion I thought it'd be kinda cool to add a photographer class for the drill camp.

    Could be dressed like John Reekie.

    Just a suggestion.

    The animation wasn't available for the screenshot (just the left ear cover). In the artillery video, which was made way after the screenshot, you can see that the animation is used correct, with the correct ear being covered

    To be fair, leaving the ear uncovered is a mistake you'd only make a couple of times before it didn't matter anymore.

    Should make a button to cover your ears when firing or else suffer suppression effects slowing down loading or aiming. Waiting for pitch forks and torches for throwing that idea out there

    Ah! Thanks Hinkle! ��
    Don't think I noticed that in the video.
