Napoleanic Wars - Great, but needs fleshing out more.

Played Napoleanic Wars for a couple of days on and off. It's a brilliant idea and a lot of fun to play.

But I feel like it relies too much on players to roleplay. It needs a better way of commanding and communicating in multiplayer games.

There might be a commander giving out orders which are missed due to everyone else talking to each other.

What's more, the typed text is either white or blue depending on team/global speak. There should be an aditional colour code to, say, show a general, or nco is speaking, so people will take notice and listen to commands.

I'd like to play the game properly, with other players playing in the 'correct' way if you like.

A 'squad' system in the vein of the Battlefield games could make things controllable too. With only squad leaders capable of speaking to other Squad leaders and commanders to co'ordinate the battle.

I don't know how it could be done, but I think 'something' along these lines would help make Napoleanic Wars much more fun. The reliance on team play means that team interaction is paramount. i.e. not having soldiers running about randomly shooting at people acres away on their own.

Mount & Musket is/was free. NW is a newer version (afaik they've redone nearly everything) of that mod costing money and beeing sold as a DLC for Warband. If you ask me, totally worth the money. Atmosphere is great and intense.

I'm kinda figuring out that joining one of the servers that have a teamspeak addy is a good idea.

There is no way you can do any sort of C3 when your text is washed away at warp speed by the scrolling casualty reports.

Not you, Mods was clearly being sarcastic. Hence the all caps "OUTRAGEOUS".

It's very hard to read sarcasm in text form. I don't blame you.

Other than the crap community, the game is fun to play for sure. but you will see ALOT of 12 year old chat. It's like playing COD cus all the kids can afford to buy it. Thanks parent's you're so awsome. (if they are'nt kids, they act like them)

Trust me, it's more professional when you join a regiment and are in an actual linebattle. The main meat of this DLC is to join a reg and get on an LB.
