    I think there would be AWESOME DLC if they solely make topic for Italy and Mediterranean region.
    For example : Make Campaign for Venice and Ottoman Empire. Add new units to Venice , Turkey , Algeria.
    Add 2 nations : Piedmont and Kingdom of Naples.
    Include Desert Map with flora.

    This game theme for 17 century might improve overall game.
    Little fixes : Add Turkey/Algeria Baloon - Expensive.
    Make price cap for 17c barracks European : 400k Wood , 400k stone , 1,2kk Gold.
    Turkey , Algeria Elite units able to compete with power nations in 18c.
    Add 18c units for Piedmont (2) , Venice (2) .

    I'm not thinking that it might happen in short time , but in Long Run... What I really miss : Ottoman Empires power role.
    In Cossacks 1 there were many campaigns where Turkey was main antagonist and you had to think strategies how to repel Hordes or turks. And now everything is very sleepy...

    That's a pretty interesting idea. I'll discuss it with the team.

    That's right, the siege of Candia is the second longest siege battle in history. My mistake.

    Cossacks 3 needs its own identity, which is why this campaign is needed. Venice not have even one unique unit , developers must change it.

    New units:


    Palace Guards (heavy infantry they replace standard Pikemans)
    Morlachs (melee infantry)
    Venetian Nobles (old type of heavy infantry, they looking something like knights)
    Stradioti (Light Cavalry)
    Schiavoni (XVIIIc. Infantry)


    Bashibouzuk (melee infantry)
    Deli Horsmen (melee Cavalry)
    Bedouins (missile Cavalry)
    Walachian Boyars (melee Cavalry)
    Armored Warriors ( heavy infantry , armed with Yatagans and shields)

    After Military Reforms :

    Mounted Nizam-I Cedit (Light Cavalry)
    Nizam Infantry


    Bedouins (missile Cavalry)
    Azzars (infantry, shooters)
    Camel Nomads (Melee Cavalry)
    Desert Riders (Light Cavalry)

    Some historical illustrations :

    Fanti da Mar di Venezia
    le uniformi dei Bombardieri del 1733 Vi propongo oggi una ricostruzione, basandomi anche sui disegni del Favaloro, della uniforme dei Bombardieri che erano.


    Other Venetian units ;)

    About Nizam I infantry for Turks I don't know since historically they were presented in Late XVIII century. And Cossacks Era is 17-18 century. So I think latest could go like period after 7 years war. So I think we should dig some reliable info , pictures of accurate info what countries what units had.

    In cossacks game it could be : Pikes , Musketeers , Grenadiers , Skirmishers , Light cavalry , heavy cavalry , dragoons.
    And ofc if devs might dig up and create at least 2-3 units for Venice it would be a lot. What to speak about Turkey and Algeria lol ;) And adding like 5-6 units I think would be too much for a team to handle. Maybe some modders could help a bit ;)

    And XVIIIc. Lancers for some factions like France , Prussia or Poland.

    Kamilow, I'm looking at your posts and I see that all your propositions are just unthinking copies from other strategy games with all their mistakes and without any sources.

    If you want to propose something for devs you should to document this by something more than wikipedia and posts from the forums of the other strategy games.

    For example instead of this:
    Something like this:


    Works of Domagoj Madunić from University of Dubrovnik:

    Now do the same for the rest of your suggestions :)

    Maybe i do this. But it seems to me that this suggestions to create this Campaign and add Morlachs or Stradioti to Venice roster are good but ofcourse developers must verify them at 100% about historical informations.

    But this illustration gives Stratiots in 16 th century. I was looking for their uniforms for XVII century couldn't find any ;-/ .
    My friend if we wanna help devs : Cherry Lady is right. We must find illustrations with correct data. Someone could help a lot if for example visiting some museum and share illustrations for military books. There are lot of XIX century units , you could dig some for XVIII century. Especially there are tons of : Austrian , French , Spanish , Russian , Prussian , English troops and their regiments , uniforms. But if we're to dig up something for Venice , Turkey we must dig deeper and English language might not help that much ;)

    Shame that Venice does not have something unique. In real history they have couple of interesting units and they are fighting well with Ottoman Empire what deserves for Campaign. :(
