View Full Version : Idea for a New Kind of Regiment

6th Jun 2005, 00:59
This is my first thread so here goes. :)

Band Regiment


To add morale to nearby regiments (makes them harder to kill)
To make regiments march / run faster (depends on type of music band plays)
To make regiments reload faster on guns / cannons (depends on type of music band plays)

-The Band

Drummers(must be researched / trained)

++If you have any ideas if there were any other musical instruments back then used for morale, please post them++


Drummers Play = faster reload on guns / cannons (must be researched / trained)
Trumpets Play= march / run faster(must be researched / trained)
Trumpets and Drummers Play= morale to nearby units (must be researched / trained)

-Cost of Band Regiment

Must be Researched
Must be Trained
++If you have any idea what cost it should be for research / train cost of the Band Regiment please post the cost++


Ok so the band regiment is basically a unit who supports men in battle by giving them inspirational music, but you have a choice which kind of things that you want your troops to benifit more on :D . It is even more advantageous to build a lot (but not too much!) so morale (overall) can be brought to the troops.

Ok so that's my post
Please comment on this idea

nice suggestion fella, but slightly flawed as the game stands atm.
Morale isnt realy implemented in the game properly some would go as far as saying its no existant.

But I would like to see drummer boys marching into battle infrom of thier brigades as im sure many would.

Perhaps instead of a morale bonus a firing and armour bonus would be better, to simulate the ryham of the beats to the stages of fireing or summat along them lines ..

But in all honesty i dont think even if it made its way into the game as a "separte" unit that many people would take the time to actually build them for the simple reason of
"whats the point of giving 2 units a mere x amount of bonus points when i can build another unit for the same price and have a attack value of xx

I think this could be an interesting idea if only implimented in a differnt way. make them a reserchable unit but not have them as a seperate unti have them as an addition to infantry units. giving them some bonus of some sort.

Maybe this can be done by a mod. as the game stands i hope that somone makes a realisum(SP?) mod or they release a patch soon as i think moral is a very important part of any RTS now days

Maybe some commanders on the battlefield. Increase the attack and defense of units who are near a commander. Until there is a definitive answer for morale on the battlefield, this might be the only benefit.

Would require the use of a slot in the army but allow your troops to fight better. He would have a small contigent of bodyguards but would fair horribly against any unit other than another commanding officer.

Just an idea.
