It's a nice update but I can't help but think that things like proper admin tools should have been made by now. Using the console is a bit of a pain in the ass. Surely this is more important than adding new units or nations at this current stage?

Hello! They're both handled by separate members of our team. Working on one doesn't take away time from the other.

What kind of administrative tools would you personally suggest? We've also added more features to help out with the administration of events in the recent update.

Good work, but a cheeky butt related bug:

It seems aside from the piper, most of the Highlanders of the 92nd seem to be missing their bums and upper thighs. I look forward to the patch notes mentioning the fix for this.

We’ve just released a sneak peek of the Prussian faction.

Head over to our  Facebook or Twitter to check it out. Enjoy!

Well i think it needs a proper admin menu, where you have the ability to alter class limits, password, servername, map, time, start a new map, reset the map etc like you do in the config but also an area to easily slay for OA. Perhaps a section where you can see the previous Officer Aimers, Possible teamkillers even and click on those names to be able to slay, kick, ban etc. Maybe also a button that allows you to announce alot easier or prewrite messages so you can quickly announce teams or rules?

I just think a dedicated menu for it all either when you press Esc or by maybe another button that has all of these things as commands would be good. No need to type in the console then as pressing the button would trigger the command and execute it. Could have it as default for everyone to see it but then you have to type in an admin password to unlock the ability to edit etc. Would then allow players to view the server rules aswell if they wished for their own servers if they liked how a public server was setup perhaps?

Also an option to host an offline server and to test things like bullet trajectory without paying.

First, thank you for this update, really excited to see what the future holds.

I allow myself a small purely cosmetic suggestion concerning our dear highlanders. I post an image of the little correction I have in my head at the level of the hat.



What do you think about gentlemen ? personally I find it cleaner and closer to reality.

I don't know how you can say it's closer to reality when it's something you've never seen in reality.

I am hopeful that the representational (paintings, etc ...) that have reached to us and reproductions that I have been able to admire are as faithful as possible without forgetting the authentic museum pieces of course.

There aren't any surviving examples, and the way the feathers are depicted in period images varies wildly from one to another.

it is true that we will always remain a little "prisoner" of the subjective vision of the artists. Anyway I wish you good luck for the rest of your work, and look forward to discovering your future creations  ;)
