Class Limitations?
« on: September 03, 2017, 11:19:33 pm »
My question is about limitations the player has in certain abilities, based on their specification. Things like infantryman not being able to waltz up to and mount an rider-less horse.
Say, if an infantry man came across a fife or drum off a fallen musician. If he picked it up, would he be able to use it exactly like his more musical counterpart?
Would he just play a poor rendition of whatever song selected to play?
Would a surgeon be able to pick up musket of a dead man and fire it?
Would a line or light infantryman be able to pick up a rifle and fire it just as accurately as the green jackets?

Or, Would any class just not be able to pickup any other weapons than the ones assigned to them?

Just wondering. Thanks! Keep up the good work devs!

Very good question.

One amusing implication of the common infantry man taking up the fife or drum is the possible quality of their playing.
If someone would organize a line of redcoats harshly belting out an malformed version of The British Grenadiers.
Imagine it.
That would be fucking glorious.

I would imagine the surgeon is already equipped with a weapon, but I would like to know these questions myself.

I really don't like the idea of class limitations, but having a shit version of music play if a non musician picks up an instrument is a genius idea
