Marching Columns & Camp organization

Recommended Posts

Historically, armies on the marched in a column, and deployed into lines only when battle was imminent. In the first game, armies march as a jumbled mob and their deployment at the start of battle is highly random. I'd like to suggest an intuitive fix.


When an army is in camp (not in town), the player would be given the ability to select it and decide the order of march. This is a simple "1st, 2nd, 3rd" choice, but when the battle screen begins the troops will be arrayed in that order, one behind the other, allowing players some control over where their units are at the start of battle. The player could also choose the orientation of units' tents within the camp, based on the direction from which they expect to be attacked.
