What about NCO's ?
« on: September 25, 2017, 07:32:08 pm »
Hello!

I've just an idea, and I'm quiet sure nobody talked about it.

My idea is to add, a custom skin for the units, different from the basic one, to represent the NCO's on the field. The player could select between a variety of NCO's. I was thinking about stripes, to distinguish them from the basic soldiers.
Actually, I'm speaking for the French, because I don't really know how the different ranks were managed in the British army.

For exemple, a picture that shows the different NCO ranks in the French army during the 1st Empire:

EDIT: This was proposed by Caselius. He talks especially about the British ranks.

I've always wished for proper NCO class.

And what could also be interesting that they would get the ability to have the Spontoon for some nations in addition to the musket or ability to choose it separately from the class selection.

British rank system was pretty similar to the used nowadays, chevrons displaying the rank. Regiments however had their own styles on the type of the badge but ranks themselves were standard.

It's clearly not a priority, but it could be RP in Linebattle etc... :)

Good idea but there are a lot of things to do before.

I'd consider a proper system of ranks a higher priority than adding new nations at the moment.
The Fresh Emperor of France: In west Corsica born and raised, In the Tuileries Palace was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' annexin' all cool and all, Shooting some Spaniards outside of the Madrid
When a couple of Austrians who were up to no good, Started invading allies in my neighborhood
I got in one little war and Britain got scared and said, "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Saint Helena."

Corporals were not considered as non commissioned officers, they were put in the same category with the soldiers.

But, I was talking about ranks in general, from "caporal" to "sergent - major".

I've always wished for proper NCO class.

And what could also be interesting that they would get the ability to have the Spontoon for some nations in addition to the musket or ability to choose it separately from the class selection.

British rank system was pretty similar to the used nowadays, chevrons displaying the rank. Regiments however had their own styles on the type of the badge but ranks themselves were standard.

Thanks a lot for these info, it helps! I'll add them soon to the first post! :P

And, I agree with you for the Spontoon.
The Frenchies NCO's didn't use any other stuff than their musket to distinguish themself: they just had to turn their musket, canon pointing to the ground. So this could be the French version of the "spontoon ability" you told me. Just a question remind me, except for RP, how is useful to turn his musket to the ground..? ???
