Anybody still actively modding C3? I have given up modding and supporting OCMOD3 (some time ago now). I won't be re-starting OCMOD3. I might build a cut-down Mod in the OCMOD3 style with troop upgrades mostly or entirely removed. My idea would be to build the mod with as few coding changes from vanilla as possible to make maintenance as easy as possible. By this I mean; (a) Troop hit points would not be changed from vanilla. Troop costs and build times would be changed as little as possible from vanilla. Maybe not at all. (b) Troop upgrades in barracks and stables would be removed mostly or totally. Other upgrades would be kept and changed as little as possible from vanilla except going to 18th C. (c) Economy would work like OCMOD3 with resource income a little leaner as no troop upgrade costs. Same flat market as OCMOD3. (d) No mine upgrades. They could take up to 10 workers from start. Mine captures more difficult. Mines to have very high hit points. Mine delete very slow burn. (e) Keep the amended production sites of OCMOD3 (e.g. 18th muskets come from 17th C barracks in the 18th C) (f) Keep the slow musket reloads, long ranges and fatal hits like in OCMOD3. Keep "no fire through friendlies" but use the standard musket weapon as in OCMOD3. Change musket formations to suit this set-up. (Only one, two and three-line formations for muskets). (g) Leave out Gen WVPM's Flexible Formations system to reduce update maintenance. Therefore all formations to move at same pace again. (Be sorry to drop this feature but I want to streamline mod size and post-patch maintenance.) Mind you, I might do this mod. Not sure yet. No promises and not even sure anyone wants to see it. Overall, I would make it like OCMOD3 but with few or no troop upgrades and all cut down in the code to minimize maintenance. Opinions will vary of course about the wisdom of having no troop upgrades. If that system does not work, I would move to only four upgrades for each 17th C unit and even this would combine attack and defence in one button. That would cut down from about 12 upgrades to 4 upgrades for each unit type. 18th C troops would still have no upgrades even then. They would simply "come out of the box" a little bit better than fully upgraded 17th C troops.
