Expand Full Description & Credits
- File Instructions:
- This patch is comprehensive, containing all changes since the original release of WIA [version 1.00b]
Game Engine [updated to version 120904]
You can now disembark troops from a fleet trapped in ice.
Cavalry will no longer assault Forts, even if breached
Siege improvements [supplementing rules added in version 1.08]
Besieged forces will now take attrition hits every turn, in proportion of their number and how the siege roll went (anti over-crowding rule).
If too many breaches accumulated, then a surrender roll is always possible (whatever the presence of a depot, super elite troops, etc.)
Each breach will make the besieged consume an extra 5% of his normal supply usage. The purpose of this rule is that by upping the supply usage, you'll have more chances to have your supply depleted enough so that the depot (or supply wagon) can't provide its 'surrender protection' to the besieged force. For the rationale, just consider that the breaches are also making depots and stocks explode or be wasted, as you get shelled pretty heavily, etc...
Fixed a bug where a lone sneaky leader could prevent a siege to happen, even if siege indicator was correctly shown
A retreating army can now split static units (abandon them) to escape better
If an attack is called off without routing (aka AutoRetreat), the attacking forces will revert to defensive posture but won’t retreat in another region.
A too low cohesion can make a stack call off an assault, aggressive leaders will have a tendency to force the troops though.
Added Overcrowding rule:
The overcrowding rule exists to penalize (rather substantially) forces that are too numerous to defend adequately in-cityscape structures (mostly cities and forts). As with other rules, the engine is not prohibiting in 'a hard way' troops to be stationed en masse in a given structure, as it would pose very large problems to handle for the interface, then the AI. Instead, it follows the philosophy of 'you can do it, but that's not optimal'...
