I just wanted to ask people for their ideas and suggestions for the actual Release of the mod. After all, that is why we released it, so that everyone out there could get their hands on it and tell us what works and what doesnt!
HERE IS A LIST OF PROJECTED PLANS:
* Load screens, backgrounds, and other miscellaneous screens changed to AWI screens. * New graphics for Native Warparties and American Riflemen. * Bump in range and accuracy of American Rifles to more offset their sky high costs and tiny unit size. * Bump in general costs of Elites (GMBs from 700 to 850, British and French Grenadiers from 600 to 700) to make them more rare on the field. * An addition of a light, fast French cav unit. * Addition of 15 or so new maps. * Addition of new infantry and horse marching sounds. * Correction of Native Warparties firing effectiveness (currently way too fast and accurate) * Addition of more red, white, and blue and white colors to choose from in the army selection screen. * Increase in artillery ammo. * Change faction name from English to British

I think we have talked about most of this already Ash, but here are some ideas just for others to see and react to:
- Raise cost of elites to ensure armies with more line and militia are bought. - Very fast "hussars" unit unique to the French. - Maybe very expensive rifles for the British. American rifles cost times 2-3? - Replace warparties' weapon with slower firing one - Add rule to AWI games besides the one exiksting "general required"-rule: Attackers deploy at the rear of their deployment zones. Larger part of the maps will hopefully be used.
Besides this I think the mod is well balanced and a TON of fun to play!

I am looking to add a brown and green color to the Americans, such that an american force can have green GMBs and brown Minutemen... would still be somewhat accurate and will keep the sides very seperate looking.
Thanks for all the suggestions, keep them coming... some will definately be used!

Since artillery units are smaller...more ammo would be nice to have for the smaller arty units to be more of a worth to buy especially if 1 unit of 3, 4 pounders cost 2000 florins and the ammo only lasts for a short amount of time

I agree with AK. American's do seem too easily to win with. If you skirmish as you're supposed to, you will win most of the time, and the British will just keep walking forward, and taking casualties. Nothing seems to work with them, in my opinion, save for staying in tree's and not allowing the Americans to get good shots off. But then again, the British were renown for being troops that could win in open, with ground to maneuver, correct? But why not in this Mod?
Just one more little tidbit to add..
