A thread for a solid, albeit janky at times, gunpowder RTS series. Here’s hoping for Cossacks 4 in the next couple years that becomes the game of the decade.
prussia is shit in this game too. That's a plus
Loved building cities in that one
Cossacks could have been way popular with a better single player campaign and voice actors
aoe2 got popular first because of the meme campaigns newfags can latch on to

what kind of space game has Libya and fucking CAR as playable factions?
idk exactly how it works, but the games startegic metagame is you influencing the nations of earth to support you in fighting the alien bastards. So you dont play as any one nation, but different factions that have various goals. Some are to drive the aliens away, another is to flee the solar system.
none of these look like starcraft clones. and a lot of them don't even seem to be released. so yeah it's dead

Also AoE4 is being managed by World's Edge and maybe we will hear something this year.

Tried Warhammer 2 after WH1, playing as Empire and holy shit why are other human fractions such fucking useless niggers? Vampire OP niggers having 5(!!!) full stack armies at turn 30, while you CANNOT trade, have defense alliances or anything at all, on top of that there are nigger orcs and other nigger humans attacking you for NO reason, or better yet you MUST declare war if you don't have enough shit (prestige or something)
FUcking nigger game for niggers, both TW1 and TW2, cocksucking bitches sucking cocks to buy DLC shit, so glad I pirated this piece of shit game and now can just delete it
Fucking kill yourself if you unironically want CA to continue shitting this franchise with manchildren fantasy setting without proper balance and retarded ALLY AI (to be fair enemy AI is so good it makes me fucking insane)
I doubt I will ever enjoy this retarded series, because why even bother with tactics? Just fucking doomstack monsters or something LMAO

I've got no idea what they were going for, but it's a shame since a whole lot of work clearly went into the unit variety and models.

I think its because originally the Imperial Guard mod was its own mod.
It would be salvageable but I don't have the free time to reallt figure out how to fix it outside of changing a few stats. The mod has a huge amount going for it but it just isn't fun, in my opinion, to play guard since you have such a huge disadvantage in terms of troop quality and while it's difficult to lose overall I find it tiresome to play.
Shotguns are a lot better than I thought but sluggas outrange them a lot and Orks don't charge. They're very useful on turn 1 albeit often suicidal. They've mostly replaced my flamers.

Pretty realistic to the time period, if I do say so myself.
thats because under the hood, shits pretty simple in terms of calculations. for more sim oriented games, having thousands and thousands of troops while having real to life physics and more complex things to compute. total war is basically 40 units because the units despite showing 200 men, are one blob. while something like graviteam gets down to the low 30 in fps if having something like 200 men in a battle.
but it can clearly be done

From what I know so far it is a strategy/rpg hybrid. You compete with others in the post apocalypse to try to control all settlements on the map. You have to manage food and water as your character travels and recruit people to your cause which you can then use to capture settlements. I haven't progressed that far into the game but there is rudimentary crafting system to repair water pumps and improve food supply.
Sounds a bit like a post-apo Mount&Blade.

It’s better than nothing, at least it does something if you are heavily outnumbered which buffing your stats won’t. Speech is the same type of effect, it might even be better because you can grow your forces. The issue is that you have to have numerical superiority and a skill advantage anyway to get a consistent edge because skill activations are inconsistent.
>at least it does something if you are heavily outnumbered which buffing your stats won’t.
I had sub 1k armies defeat 10k+ stacks in one turn thanks to good buffs and stats m8
Direct damage falls off hard by mid game
What you do is get a character that has the direct army damage at a high percentage or based off of something else (like raising attack) and pairing them with someone that'll raise their attack.
Any let's plays or tutorials for this that anons would recommend?
>Or artificially keep your draft cost low to leverage small amounts of money into huge armies and then steamroll. Draft cost is a function of % of cities owned and the sum of all your officers' star ratings.
What’s the best way to do that?

This is so well-made and high quality that at this point it is indistinguishable from an actual, official expansion pack. The attention to detail is staggering. How in the world did they manage this? Thank you russians for keeping my favorite game alive decades after release.

Have I heard correctly that Snow Elves are next? That's basically the only nation on the continent not made playable.

Well Earth/Starsiege is technically freeware now. You can get the iso off of tribesuniverse.com but you have to set it up and patch it yourself.
pretty sure HiRez took that down about 2 or so years ago, their ISOs were super jank too, missing all the music and a bunch of sound files and had huge compatibility issues with anything past W7. Luckily some discord autists actually fixed up the game and got it running on W10

I would like to find a game like Supreme Ruler Ultimate but with more control over internal politics/diplomacy, or a simpler Power & Revolution, being able to make a coup d'etat, become a totalitarian state and conquer the world. With an editor able to create factions, countries or leaders. Excluding Hearts of iron or any paradox game. Realpolitik is too simple for me and doesnt itch the political itch for me.
>control over internal politics/diplomacy, or a simpler Power & Revolution, being able to make a coup d'etat, become a totalitarian state and conquer the world. With an editor able to create factions, countries or leaders.
Hearts of Iron 4.

>Excluding Hearts of iron or any paradox game.
Oh well don't play exactly what you are asking for out of spite against Paradox then it is only you missing out.
Power&Revolution is buggy mess piece of shit
