Whilst obviously modernised the drill is similar in most places if not the same as Napoleonic British Drill, (jokes had to remove link cause its classified)

I think it would be amazing if we could have an emote / animation menu that works similar to the music and phrase menus. Whether it be for formal events, realism, etc, it could add so much to the immersion of the game.

Some possible emotes could be:
- Dip the flag
  Infantry Example:
Spoiler
[close]
  Cavalry Example (When available):
Spoiler
[close]

- Hands behind back
  Example:
Spoiler
[close]

- Present arms
  Example:
Spoiler
[close]

- Sword salute
  Example:
Spoiler
[close]

- Present / raise flag
  Infantry Example:
Spoiler
[close]
  Cavalry Example (When available):
Spoiler
[close]

- Wave flag
  Example (It's the only one I could find):
Spoiler
[close]

- Rest
  Example (Infantry enlisted man and officer):
Spoiler
[close]


     
That's all I have for now! Please reply with any of your ideas (with examples if possible) and hopefully this feature can be added in the furture. ;)
I agree, everyone single one of these should be in fact, added in game at some point. It's very much needed.

Yeah I agree with that. Could be good for standing at attention

Soldiers should be at order arms if they're "standing at attention", not holding their musket at the slope.

The real question is why they've all got their muskets on the wrong shoulder.

Lol, damn that looks gay, first thing that came to my mind was, «the village people» anno 1810 :P

Anyway, i would also like too see emotes, i prefer they had keybindings instead of putting them like in clickable box as with prases,,, e.g press f1 to salute, press f2 too etc...

I think that could work. Would be a lot of key binds to remember. Maybe Having 3 or 4 of the emotes have bindings by default, preferably the more commonly used ones, and have the rest in a clickable menu. Then maybe the option to bind the rest of the emotes to other keys.
