Nap Mod Testing

Post  Grog on Fri Mar 01, 2013 1:47 pm

Norb is hopeful of a release of patch 1.6 this weekend. If not hopefully soon after.

I'm keen to test out the Nap mod MP ASAP and wondered if there is much interest here for this?

Hopefully, no major changes would be needed to the current Road to Wagram/Peninsular mods. We will have to see.

We already have adequate OOB's done, including a massive Waterloo OOB done by Jack O'Neill.

I'm sure many are just as keen to test out the various changes in the patch for ACW play but a quick test is all that is needed, initially.

Also, an appropriate map, which is not too wooded or too many fences/walls. There is a mod which removes the effcts of fences. A small battle on East Cav Field? or is there an appropriate GCM map?

What's your thoughts gentlemen?

I'm very interested in giving this a go. Weekend evenings are a problem for me at the moment, but could do an hour's test with you most other times, with a bit of notice.

I'm particularly keen to see how cavalry combat works in MP. I have lots of face-to-face kriegsspiel scenarios we've played over the years, which I would like to convert for 'Gettysburg' play. Thanks to gunship24's help, I even have traditional Red & Blue armies ready & waiting.

We can reduce the foliage on any map on screen 2 of 'Options'. I'm not sure whether the host's setting governs this in MP, or whether each player has to make the adjustment.

The large Gettysburg map would probably be the best choice. There are very few fences and houses to get in the way.

Wow that's awesome! I thought they had teased us saying they 'might' allow it for MP but I thought it had fallen by the wayside amidst NSD's other projects. Yeah I would definitely want to test this out and hopefully we can get a large following built up for it with Chain of Command games in HITS style and with all the great OOBs -- the possibilities are endless.

I think if we match the rifles and artillery csvs in both mods -- there's a way to use Garnier's random maps as well, to allow maps with less fences/buildings and more variety Very Happy

Wagram seems to be working along with Garnier's random maps and fog of war if anyone is interested in trying an MP game out, just let me know. Make sure to update GCM for patch and latest maps as well as get the latest Road to Wagram update.

Great news Baldwin Very Happy

I'm not sure but I think we need to make the changes to the square that was discussed in the NSD forums. A few simple changes, only.

I expect the modders are beevering away right now.

It will be a few days before I can contribute or play.

Mitra and Leffe are going to be testing out the combined Nap mod this evening 8pm GMT. I hope to join later but cannot commit.

Roll up.
