For a remaster, it's damn good.

What do you think could still be improved?

>What do you think could still be improved?
Fix the "autoaim" or snapping effect when trying to select things. Sometimes you want your villager to target a specific tree in the forest and the game will target every tree that is adjacent, but not the one you want, even though your cursor is clearly pointing at it.

Same shit also happens sometimes when you want to click a specific villager, and the game selects one next to it. Seems like they wanted to be forgiving for misclicks when targeting units and resources, but I think it would be better without.
>Match the units to the civs a little
Isn't there a mod for this yet? If not I'd guess it will come out eventually. I don't think the devs are ever going to implement something like this since it's never going to be used in competitive play for the reasons you listed. Also it would probably clash too much with the classic aoe2 aesthetic so many people like.
Your voice is valid anon
I never play multiplayer because I hate people, so speaking from the single player perspective, I can say it's the best remake I've seen, and I'm very pleased. I cannot stop playing it, it brings back memories and it looks somewhat "modern" or at least current at the same time.
Yeah well I hate you too!

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Ugandan Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire Ugandan armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across Uganda and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, faggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of Burger King™ and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

Have you ever tried to fire a musket straight? Bullet rattles through the chamber on the way out and exits going God knows which direction. At range it has the accuracy of a paper airplane. Meanwhile a bow will always shoot straight provided it's fired by a skilled archer.

That's why old infantry tactics relied on line formations. At least some of your bullets in a volley would hit their targets.

It's way older than that.

I just need the exact same thing without the jank UI,
spiritual successors are a low iq concept. just make something good and original instead
Just remaster the same game with a better ui, conyrols amd game mechanics.
I never was able to play the original because i could make what was going on the screen
Why does it have to be a sequel /successor.
Why can no one make good original games anymore.

But it has nothing to do with what OP described
Getting rid off shallow phone game battle system would be a good start. Or at least improving campaign map mechanics if you are so intent on keeping battles shit.
>mmo anything
doomed to be shit
A Civ-like game until you reach the science victory rocket to Alpha Centauri stage, then it turns into a space 4X game.
Each planet you colonize returns you to the Civ-like mechanic, but you've already reached the high technology stage. So you're going back and forth between managing your planets and your space empire.
When you go out you can encounter other species, either on your level or below. You can be the invading aliens and conquer their less advanced planets, or leave them be. If you leave them they might surpass you can become a problem later on.
Your rivals on the home planet don't disappear, maybe they try to take over while you're busy elsewhere, or launch their own space empires.
Probably utterly impractical, but you get the idea.

Change my mind, describe anything within this game and I will tell you why it's bad.

Also I agree with OP but implementing a realistic system of not real "feudal" Europe would be too hard. Plus it add's difficulty and fun
Same with casus belli. It's just balance
>historical accuracy does not equal fun
Like I tried to convey in the OP, even historical accuracy aside, mechanics are bad.

That being said while, while I'd agree historical accuracy doesn't automatically equal fan, it isn't like it's opposing it. Ultimately the statement has no value and people who make has no idea what a historically accurate game would even look like but still have the hubris to assume it must be bad. A single game isn't ever going to be able to present everything even if it tried, and abstractions to level are necessary, so there are about a billion different ways to make a historically accurate game about a specific time period, and they all would be drastically different. So, yes, historically accuracy doesn't guarantee fun, but nor does it prevent it from being fun.
Finally, an argument, but even that's bad because arbitrary limit they implemented. So, it's logical to find a way to control the population growth, there are many ways to do it downry (maybe not every adult should be married), cost of maintaining a child, etc. But Paradox instead implemented an invisible arbitrary child limit:
>BASE_NR_OF_CHILDREN_PER_COUPLE = { 1 1 2 3 5 5 } # Based on tier of character or parents; whichever is higher Unlanded, Baron, Count, ..., Emperor
>EXTRA_CHILDREN_FOR_PLAYERS = 2 # Num of extra children players can have before reaching living child limit
>EXTRA_CHILDREN_FOR_RULERS = 2 # If either character is a ruler, they get extra children
So, emperors can have only seven children per spouse, the player emperor can get nine children per spouse, meanwhile AI count can only have four children per spouse, regardless if they marry, the total number of living children per character is capped at 14.
Hey OP, hope you get murdered soon

There is the warrior knight. Not really a samurai sword but he is wearing plate armor and carries a sword. Turns all hits into kills for his attached unit

It's not in any way a samurai sword and thus not an answer.

>get to 300 dev
>cancel tributary
>wait for ming to get the oh shit you fucked up events
>destroy their armies like butter thanks to their -50% morale
First 2 ideas should be humanist and offensive
As it happens I started a mongolia game today.

A few considerations:

-swtiching to confucian synchretism get Ming to support your independance almost immediately

-Something must have changed to the way AI switch provinces to you, because Ming carpet sieged Oirat and flipped it all to me, allowing some massive gains.

-Maybe out of luck, Ming can declare immediately after on one of the manchu tribes, before breaking alliance and requesting tributary status. Again, it was happy to flip everything he didn't have a claim on, and made a second very easy war.

-breaking tributary was the tricky part, and took some savescumming to get Ming to declare on Yarkand instead of me, giving time for the disaster to tick up

Not sure about idea groups, so I went with humanist, per >>229985 advice. 2nd will be colonialism, tho.
what why
Expansion gives you more colonists if you care about Siberia
I seriously hope you're not considering colonizing Siberia with colonists.
It will take 10 years per province to complete if you get lucky with settler chance.
10 x 12 x 2 = 240 ducats spend to colonize that province.
Most of it is 1/1/1 shithole garbage with shit terrain so forget about deving.
1 base tax is 1 ducat per year.
1 production dev is 0.2 goods produced, let's say you get fur at max price (3.5 ducats).
0.2 x 3.5 = 0.7 ducats per year before modifiers.
Let's say that province gives you 2 ducats per year cause you got some ideas that increase it eventually etc etc. It'll take 120 years before you start making a return on investment. And early game 240 ducats can be worth a lot.

It's just not worth colonizing that shit man.
No, but I intended to spawn colonialism. Probably not gonna happen tho.

Reminder that FE1 Shooters have 1-2 range.

yeah, fuck that
ok do navy now.
but do it both for water maps (against other navy, amphbots, and hovercrafts) and in amphibious map (against everywhere else)
I really like those factory overview posts. Is anything like it available anywhere (the wiki for example)?
The wiki has a page for each factory that gives basic tactics and describes how you can use the units as a whole/with other factories, but doesn't look at each unit individually.
