    Hello gentlemen, I've come to tell you about a mod made specifically in mind of historical accuracy using the vanilla game as a basis.

    Here's a link to the workshop mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1619790185

    Some features include -

    Bigger structures.

    More historically accurate numbers of men in formations.

    New units for some nations like the Pandurs for Prussia.

    Formations firing in salvos instead of by individual unit.

    Removal of effective "blobbing" tactics i.e. having 5 formations on top of each other creating a doom blob.

    Men in formations that are not set in stand ground might "panic" and "flee".

    Grenadiers using their "grenades" in melee combat which is very effective against charging cavalry.

    Redesigned Cavalry and their formations so they have much more tactical uses, i.e. they will die charging frontally but will be very effective if they flank a formation.

    Artillery such as Cannons have longer ranges and are more expensive so you can't just throw them away as you would in the vanilla game.

    The Resources and upgrades have been adjusted, battles are more complex, slower and more tactical and overall the game just feels better in terms of executing strategies since blobbing, rushing and so on are not as effective anymore.

    To me personally the mod feels like a part of American Conquest mixed in with Cossacks but taken to a more radical perhaps level of realism and historical accuracy in search of even a Total War type of gameplay so to speak.

    The mod is created by Trapper (https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198096186345) and here's the mod group for anyone interested in finding other people that play the mod: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/Arch_the_Great

    Just a quick P.S.

    The description of the group is in German and if there is interested a discord server for everybody that wants to play the mod can be created.

    Cheers and have a nice day.
