    Few artillery followup questions:

    - Will users have the ability to carry out multiple tasks on the artillery peices at the same time or follow a more structured step by step process approach?

    - Will 'The transport system' for artillery be introduced in The Artillery first phase or will positions be fixed locations?

    - Will anyone dozy enough to be directly behind a discharged artillery peice be affected (injured or likely killed)? Those things have a serious kickback.

    My thoughts exactly rbsmith7, combat can get really close and you know that artillery will be targeted by infantry in melee if the reload times are fairly long. Someone is bound to get into that scenario at some stage. Just hope that we see some good clips of it on youtube when it happens.

    Also quick note, as everyone was running around with artillery rounds in their hands and wondering what to do.

    The guns need sponged first, sponging only works from the number 1 position.
    After sponging, the rounds can be inserted, (only one at a time,) and this is done from the number 2 position. Sponging needs to occur after every shot fired.

    Elevation of the tube, and inserting the primer can only happen from the Gunner's position. And can be performed by just about anyone.

    The pivoting of the piece, usually performed by the number 3 man, can also be done by anyone. Pivoting can be done at any time, including while being sighted from the gunner's position.

    Hope this helps some

    Thank you for the helpful insight. We just really need the devs to add the pendulum houses. I would maybe say have the reload animation a little slower for the cannons such as when you're sponging out the bore and when you're ramming it.
