A little suggestion/thing I have thought about in proportion to NW. After I watched some Waterloo-scenes from movies on YouTube, I saw a horseman play/blow in his horn/trumpet to signal an attack or withdraw. I just thought about how it maybe could help teamwork, but maybe also playing a part in creating the dramatic and epic battles, and to create an awesome atmosphere on the battlefields.
When I play NW i sometimes miss the sound from the drums, pipes and horns, and the sound always seems to disappear when you walk like 5 meters away from those who play. Maybe it's a little thing, but I just thought about how it maybe could add something different to the game. A horn blowing signal to attack, and then all charge and you can hear the enemy shouting from a long distance!
What do you think? :-)
