Player built defenses?
« on: January 20, 2017, 06:45:44 pm »
Is there any plan to add something like an engineer class into the game? Will we be able to make our own defenses or will we be entirely dependent on the map creator?
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

A game without sappers would be a lot different, especially for artillery in battles, I think they're pretty necessary so I hope they're in.

Sappers were actually very helpful men within regiments. It would be rather dissapointing not having the option to be one or not having the option to build some defences.

It depends on how the game is played, if rounds take a long time to play out, then sure, but have sappers building rates far slower than portrayed in NW with the overly-arcadey stacks of chevau-de-frise' being dropped everywhere.

And do something to prevent explosive abuse if they're added. Perhaps having a fuse system that takes time and care to lay.

Yeah. There is a lot of sapper trolling in NW.  Hope they can minimize that in this game.

The idea you wrote sounds good though.

I agree, making Sapper actions a bit longer might be a good idea.

Of course it can be part of the map but it could also be player build
No one knows... ;)

Considering we see artillery pieces smashed at least on ships will the carpenters/sappers be able to repair/temporary cripple cannons too?

I suppose there will be sappers to repair things during siege. Seems logic to me as they were useful in the past
