ProtoRealism Mod v1.0

Author File Description
The Guy
File Details
Game Version: TAD
even thought why those damn musketeers don't die with a single shot? i mean, in real life many soldiers dies by headshots. Well, with this mod all attacks have a chance to perform a critical attack (often instantly kills a unit). It's no a perfect mod (not yet) but i'm planning to make more versions basing of your feedback n recommendations

Features of this mod:
-All attacks have a chance to critical
-corpses and debris last about a minute on the ground
-slightly increased ships limit (thought it was a little "limited")
-modifies load capacity of small ships
(now a canoe can't carry 20 soldiers, besides, is not convenient)

please post your feedback here: http://aoe3.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=14,37217,,10

Prusak "even thought why those damn musketeers don't die with a single shot? i mean, in real life many soldiers dies by headshots."

Actually, this is quite untrue. Firstly, remember that at the time, the guns were quite inaccurate, and many shots missed, especially the head. Also getting shot any place but the head or heart, especially with a musket or arquebus, would likely NOT be fatal, so it is actually LESS realistic to make every shot a kill shot; not everyone can be a sharpshooter, especailly the militia type soldiers and mercenaries who recieved less formal training.

Furthermore, it is also untrue that most soldiers are killed by "headshots", that is only in videogames, which are completely the opposite of reality. My father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were all soldiers who saw combat, at it is chaotic, you are lucky to hit anything, especially with the adrenalyn dump. There are few "headshots" (I hate this term), usually only taken by snipers and specially trained sharpshooters against assigned targets.

Not trying to break you down, though, and by all means, DO continue modding, this sounds like it could be fun if I want just some mass carnage, but I am only trying to set the record straight on what is "realistic", especially in the colonial through napoleonic eras.
joelkad Well, he's not saying every single shot will be letal. There will be chances, let's call them loucky shots.

And i use to think a single unit represents maybe 10, 100 soldiers, as they were in some kind of scale.

I like the features of the mod, i wanted something like this for having fun, keep perfecting it!
maxter1999 ima make a mod and itll make all things 1 hit but i dont think i will 2013
