On a side note, we may not be able to release a developer blog this week. There is a substantial amount of work on the game itself that has been increasingly piling up due to some changes that we’re currently working on. These changes are all based on feedback from our community.

We’re a relatively small team. Trying to slot blogs into our busy schedule for the release of the game on Early Access this year is no easy task. However, even at the cost of our social life, we’ll do our best to write at least two developer blogs every month.

With that being said, I’m currently writing another blog about our plans for one of the classes and the class system itself. Here’s a little teaser for you lads.

Why is a British line infantry officer of the early 1800s wearing a Bicorn hat? Should he not be wearing a shako?

I think they wore those hats at least up until 1811 if I am not mistaken as well as in the Peninsular wars. Varied from regiment to regiment I would assume as well.

You'd find Lieutenant Colonels and upwards in staff positions wearing them, this is true. The fashion however was to have the points going front to back, not side to side. In terms of army regulation, the stove pipe shako was adopted in 1799 and was the standard dress of both men AND officers for Line Infantry. An officer in the field wearing a biocorn would get in real trouble.

The proper fashion for the cocked hat in British regulations, be it three-cornered or two, was always to have the cockade and loop in line with the left eye.

Line infantry officers weren't ordered to wear shakoes in the field until 1812, the same time they adopted light infantry style coatees.

Although they did often wear the hats 'fore-and-aft', they were technically forbidden from doing so.
