Other Games / Mass Effect: Andromeda
« on: February 17, 2017, 08:10:08 pm »

Surprised to see there wasn't a Mass Effect: Andromeda thread or even just a general Mass Effect thread.

What is it?

ME: Andromeda is the 4th installment of the Mass Effect series. It's an action-RPG set in a distant future where humans have developed spaceflight and have started colonizing the galaxy. Andromeda itself is set 600 years after the events of Mass Effect 3, featuring a brand new story and cast. The story follows Ryder, a pathfinder and explorer for the Andromeda Initiative: a project where a group of colonists and explorers set out to the Andromeda galaxy with the intent of settling it. As with the previous games, it offers an action-RPG experience with various squadmates to team up with and planets to explore. New gameplay options include being able to craft stuff, a new class sytem and the return of a ground vehicle to travel in, like the Mako from the first game.

Developer: Bioware
Publisher: EA
Release date: March 21 (NA) and March 23 (EU) 2017
Available on: PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One

Origin link, in case anyone wants that...

Personally I'm sceptically optimistic about this game. The new changes and additions look good on paper but I am not sure about Bioware. Despite being a massive Mass Effect fan, I'm not gonna preorder and will be awaiting reviews before even considering buying it. Anyone else got any thoughts about it?

Historical Discussion / A question regarding British officers and bicornes.
« on: November 12, 2014, 04:38:52 pm »
As I was casually looking at some pictures of British regiments during the Peninsular campaign, I stumbled upon a lot sketches and drawings showing British officers wearing bicornes instead of their regulation shakos. This made me wonder: how common was it actually for British officers to wear bicornes instead of shakos?

If there's anybody with more knowledge of this subject than me; I'd sure appreciate any new info.

I was just wondering if there are any other people on the forums who, like me, just love RPG's.
So what is your favorite Role-Playing Game out there? What are you playing right now?

To start, my favorite RPG is currently a tie between The Witcher 2: Assassing of Kings and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

Regimental History

The 60th Regiment of Foot,originally the 62nd, was raised in the American colonies in 1756 as the 62nd (Royal American) Regiment of Foot to combat the French and their native allies. Following the disaster of the Braddock expedition royal and parliamentary approval for the funds to raise a new regiment were given just prior to Christmas of 1755,hence the regiments traditional birthday of Christmas day.
According to a regimental history compiled in 1879 by a captain of the by then Kings Royal Rifle Corps, it was in December 1755 when Parliament approved for the sum of £81,000 to be used in order to raise four battalions,each a thousand men strong to serve in North America. Unusually the Parliament of Great Britain additionally granted His majesty King George additional powers  “An Act to enable His Majesty to grant commissions to a certain number of foreign Protestants, who have served abroad as officers or engineers, to act and rank as officers or engineers in America only, under certain restrictions and regulations.” The Earl of Loudoun, commander in chief of all American forces, was appointed colonel-in-chief of the regiment. Additionally a further fifty officer commissions were granted to Swiss and Germans,though none would ever be able to rise above Lieutenant-Colonel.

Charge of the 60th at Bushy run
According to a modern history of the regiment, the initial idea for this unique regiment was proposed by Jacques Provost,a Swiss adventurer and soldier and a close friend of the Duke of Cumberland. Supposedly Prevost recognised, following the Braddock disaster, the need to have a force of men who understood how to fight in the wild,men who truly understood forest warfare.

The regiment was apparently intended to combine the characteristics of a colonial corps and those of a foreign legion. Men used to fighting in forests from Germany and Switzerland, Men from America who knew and understood the terrain and finally British veterans who had fought against the French before. Another supposedly crucial aspect is that every man within this regiment had to be a protestant as they were fighting a predominantly French-Catholic force.

In the end the regiment was raised on Governor's island, New York with a total of four thousand one hundred and sixty enlisted men as well as one hundred and one officers and two hundred and forty Non Commissioned Officers. It was not until February of 1757 when the regiment was finally renumbered the 60th regiment of foot after the surrender of the 50th and 51st at  Fort Oswego, both regiments were subsequently removed from the British army roll.
It was in the Canada campaign that the regiment truly distinguished itself, fighting at both Lousiberg (1758) and Quebec (1759) where they amongst other regiments finally wrestled control of Canada from the French. It was at Quebec that Wolfe gave the regiment it's motto Celer Et Audax,Swift and Bold.
However the 60th did suffer grievously at Quebec, on the 31st of July a mixed attack by the 60th and the grenadiers resulted in around five hundred casualties between the grenadiers and the 60th. The result of this disastrous attack on Montcalm's riverside fortifications meant the 60th did not gain the privilege of fighting in the main battle line but rather formed a rearguard with the 3rd Grenadiers against any incursions by Bougainville. The 60th and 3rd between them however did incur 215 men lost after a brief engagement with Bougainnville's column.

These battles however had been fought in the traditional European style, it was not until the Pontiac's rebellion of 63' when the uniqueness of the regiment would truly come into fruition. Initially the regiment lost several outlying garrisons but at Bushy run eventually proved it's mastery of forest warfare when a detachment of the regiment ambushed native attackers. But although the 60th did typically wear the standard British uniform, it was said on occasions that they switched their bayonets for hatchets and their uniforms cut down for ease of movement in the woods.

In 1797 a 5th Battalion of the 60th was raised under Baron Francis de Rottenburg, whose treatise on Riflemen and Light Infantry formed the basis of Moore’s later training. This was the first British unit to be dressed in the green jacket and armed with the rifle in place of the smoothbore musket and it represented the first organized British attempt at developing specialized light infantry for the European battlefield. Sir Johm Moore, the hero of Corunna, was in the 60th before he set up Shorncliff where he established the training regime that produced Britain's finest light infantry regiments.
60th campaign dress 1755

Peace was concluded with France in 1802, and the usual drastic education in England's Army and Fleet followed. But Bonaparte kept France mobilized, and made his plans to subjugate the world. War soon broke out again. The threatened invasion of England was settled in 1805 by the victory of Trafalgar, and the French armies marched east; while Napoleon closed all European ports to English trade. In 1807 he dispatched an army of 80,000 men to Spain to place his brother Joseph on the throne. Spain and Portugal appealed to England for help, and it was decided to send an army to Portugal under Sir Arthur Wellesley to drive the French out of Spain in co-operation with the Spanish armies. The British troops landed in 1808, which marked the commencement of the Peninsular War.

Among the troops under Sir Arthur Wellesley which landed in 5th Bn. Portugal were the 5th Battalion 60th and 2nd Battalion 95th Rifles,' raised in 1801. Our 5th Battalion gained thirteen battle honours for the Regiment in the Peninsula. It was at first under the command of Major W. G. Davy,' who had succeeded de Rottenburg.
Soon after this force landed a general order was issued by Sir Arthur Wellesley which explains how the 5th Battalion came to be attached by companies to infantry brigades and therefore to be present at nearly all the major engagements of this war. The order was dated 6th May, 1809, and was as follows
"The Commander of the Forces recommends the companies' of the 5th Battalion of the 60th Regiment to the particular care and attention of the General Officers commanding the brigades of infantry to which they are attached; they will find them to be most useful, active and brave troops in the field and that they will add essentially to the strength of the brigade."
Another order (of 4th May) directed that attached Riflemen were to be formed together on the left of the brigade. But "when opposing the enemy they would of course be on the front, flanks or rear according to circumstances.


In April, 1809, Sir Arthur Wellesley again arrived in Portugal and assumed command. There were 250,000 French troops in the Peninsula. He at once advanced against Soult, who had invaded the northern provinces, forced the passages of the River Douro and, driving the French out of Portugal, advanced upon Madrid at the end of June. He soon found himself faced with an army of 50,000 French under King Joseph and Marshal Victor, and took up a position at Talavera. His force consisted of 57,000 men, but 34,000 of these were Spaniards and the brunt of the ensuing battle fell on the 23,000 British.

The French attack was repelled with heavy loss. In his subsequent despatches Sir Arthur spoke warmly of our Regiment, which on one occasion had saved him from being taken prisoner. "Upon this occasion," he states in his despatch, "the steadiness and discipline of the 5th Battalion 60th Regiment were conspicuous."

At Talavera, the 5th Battalion lost 7 officers and 44 other ranks. Major Davy proceeded home and Major W. Woodgate took command.
Lieutenant-Colonel W. Williams' took command in 1810: he had seen much active service and had been wounded at Corunna. Operations came to a standstill until the following year.

The 60th at Barrossa

The French having been largely reinforced, Wellesley retired into Portugal, which was invaded in 1810 by the enemy under Marshal Massena. The British General, now created Lord Wellington, inflicted on the French a sanguinary check at Busaco, where the 60th, under Colonel Williams, again distinguished themselves. The five companies of the 60th engaged lost 5 officers (the C.O. being wounded twice) and 24 other ranks. The enemy was too strong to be permanently stopped, and Wellington retired to the previously prepared lines of Torres Vedras, covering Lisbon.
Thence, in 1811, he again advanced and drove the French from Portugal. But Massena advanced with 57,000 men and a desperate two-day battle ensued at Fuentes d'Onor. Here Colonel Williams was distinguished by his defence of the village of that name: he had three companies of the 60th under his command. He was dangerously wounded and Major Woodgate took command of the 5th Battalion.
A few days later a detachment of the Anglo-Portuguese Army (including four companies of the 60th), under Marshal Beresford, which was covering the Spanish fortress, Badajos, repulsed a most determined attack on Albuhera. Captain John Galiffe, of the 60th, and one Rifleman were present both at Fuentes d'Onor and Albuhera.
In October some Rifle companies were present at the surprise of the French at Arroyo dos Molinos, where Captain Blassiere distinguished himself by penetrating into the town on the previous night.


The 1812 campaign began with the siege and capture by assault of the two fortresses which guarded the Spanish frontier. Companies of the 5th Battalion played their part as covering troops to divisions.At Ciudad Rodrigo one company distinguished itself at the capture of the convent of Santa Cruz. At Badajos four companies lost 6 officers and 44 other ranks, mainly in the final assault.

Sending Hill to destroy the bridge of Almaraz, and advancing into Spain, Wellington on 22nd July defeated Marmont at the decisive Battle of Salamanca, when the 5th Battalion lost 3 officers and 33 other ranks. Lieutenant-Colonel Williams was wounded.
The English General thereupon marched towards Madrid and entered the capital in triumph on 12th August. But the French were so strongly reinforced that the British troops were obliged to retire for the winter to Portugal.

In May, 1813, the army finally quitted Portugal, and again advancing drove the French northwards. On 21st June Wellington gained a splendid victory over King Joseph at Vittoria, capturing 150 guns and all their transport.
In this battle Colonel Fitzgerald commanded a battalion made up of three companies of the 5th Battalion and light companies of other regiments. They had very heavy fighting, attack and counter-attack, on the right of the battle front. Three headquarter companies under Major Galiffe led the final attack on Arinez, cleared the village and broke the French centre.

Driven from Spain, the French army rallied on the frontier on the River Bidassoa, where Soult assumed command, having been dispatched by Napoleon to supersede his brother, King Joseph, and Marshal Jourdan.
He immediately attacked the English, but was defeated with great slaughter at the Battle of the Pyrenees, which lasted eight days, from 24th July to 2nd August. The 5th Battalion was at this time commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel John F. Fitzgerald.
Wellington, then advancing into France, forced the passage of the Bidassoa on 7th October and carried the strongly fortified lines of the French upon the Nivelle River, after a battle which he considered the finest action of his career. The campaign ended in a further victory on the Nive after a battle lasting five days.

After Napoleon's defeat at Leipzig in October, 1813, the Allies had driven the French armies back into France. In the south, after the Nive battle, operations ceased. Wellington, with 40,000 men, including Portuguese and Spaniards, faced Soult with 35,000. He also had 28,000 investing Bayonne. Early in February he resumed the offensive. A company of the 60th led the advance of the Guards Brigade at the passage of the Adour.
Soult withdrew slowly on Orthez, where he took up a strong position from which he was driven, after heavy fighting, on 27th February. The French fell back fighting on Toulouse.
This battle was the last great victory of the Peninsular War. The French were thrown back into the city, which they evacuated two days later. Meanwhile, on the 10th, a determined sortie from Bayonne had been defeated. on 12th April news was received of Napoleon's abdication. Hostilities ceased on 18th April.
The 5th Battalion companies attached to divisions with Wellington had only 9 officers and 250 rifles remaining after this campaign of six weeks: the company at Bayonne had lost all its officers and was reduced to a strength of 40 other ranks.

Following the Peninsular war the first,fourth,fifth,sixth,seventh and eighth battalions were all disbanded,however by this point all of the battalions had become Rifles battalions and the regiment itself was designated the 60th Rifles.

With thanks to my beauties James Grant & Merfie for making a huge amount of this thread.

What started out as a group of Friends playing a game together has now turned into a regiment which will accept anyone that wishes to join. We from the 33e are an active community that simply want to have fun in playing Napoleonic Wars. This regiment doesn't want to be the best, the biggest or the most well-know in the community, we simply want to play the game and have fun. We are part of the Interactive Gaming Community, a large community full of people playing different games, so when you are part of this regiment and want to have a good time but sadly the 33e has no event going on that day, then hop in on of the other clans and we will play something else with them! Everyone is welcome, this regiment recruits worldwide although take note that most of our members are EU which means we will for now only attend EU events. So if you are looking to join a tight community, this is the regiment for you!

The real 33e Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne was raised in 1625 as the Régiment du Plessis-Joigny. It was renamed to the Régiment de Touraine in 1636. It preformed various roles untill it was put into active duty during the Austrian War of Succesion (1740-1748). The Regiment participated in the extremely bloody battle of Fontenoy on 11 may 1745. During the battle, the outnumbered French army massacred the enemy Anglo-Hanoverian-Austrian-Dutch army. As a result of the French revolution, the regiment was again renamed in 1791, this time to the 33e Régiment d'infanterie under Colonel Jean-Louis Ramaud De Maillou. In 1793, their title of regiment was changed to Demi-Brigade, but it was changed back during the 1803 military reforms. The Regiment gained it's very first Battle Honour at Austerlitz, Napoleon's most brilliant victory. The regiment continued to serve with Napoleon's army, being present at battles such as Friedland and Wagram. The men of the 33e followed their emperor all the way to Russia, where they just as everyone suffered badly during the campaign of 1812. A year later they fought at the Battle of Leipzig, where their commander, Colonel Maire, was wounded while commanding the regiment. In 1815, the regiment fought at Ligny but did not fight at the Battle of Waterloo. The 33e Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne continued to serve France during the Franco-Prussian War and the First World War.

Released Modifications / Joer's Naval Workshop
« on: August 04, 2013, 05:51:23 pm »

I am a great fan of the 18th-19th century British Royal Navy. It hurted me to see that FSE made the sailors look like half naked Pirates. Some may like that, yes but I prefer historical accuracy. I am working on several small mods which will fix the British Navy unit to be more accurate. I also have some small unsused thingies which I will upload eventually as modder's resources. I will post updates from time to time about what I am working on and when it will be released. Take note, I just started making custom skins, I am not a skinning mastermind like Beta or Kochi. I will try to make accurate 19th century Naval Uniforms and clothing. Nothing more, nothing less.

Now, onwards to the mods. Below is a list of all plans and actual releases:

-Ship Crew Voice mod (See post below)

Planned Mods
-reskin the British Captain uniform to a proper one
-Give Sailors shirts. Maybe even coats
-reskin of the British Captain to Lord Nelson


We from the 43rd Regiment are based on the real 43rd Light Infantry Regiment from the Napoelonic Wars. During events, we will fight as Light Infantry, with the tactics that are used with this type of soldier. Our goal is to create a fun and enjoyable regiment, while also try to be as disciplined as possible. Outside events on Napoleonic Wars, we are a tight commnity chatting and playing all kinds of games on our Teamspeak server. Everyone in this regiment is valuable, from the newest recruit to the harden veterans.

The original 43rd was raised as Thomas Fowke's 54th Regiment of Foot in 1741. It shiped out to Halifax, Nova Scotia to fight in the French and Indian War in North America in 1757. It's first battle honour was at Quebec, under General Wolfe in 1759. The then-54th was transfered to the West indies  where it remained untill 1774 peforming various roles. The 43rd was one of the first of a total of 10 planned regiments to arrive in North America, to reinforce the British Army in the hostile colonies. The regiment fought at the Battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill untill it was returned to the West Indies to officialy become the 43rd Monmouthshire Regiment in 1782.

The 43rd was ordered to become a light infantry regiment in 1803, along with the 52nd and the 95th Rifles they became the first Corps of Light Infantry and formed the Light Brigade at Shorncliffe, Kent under the command of Sir John Moore. From 1804 they served in the Peninsula as part of the Light Division with the 52nd and 95th. In 1807 The 43rd was part of a force led by Sir Arthur Wellesley in the capture of Copenhagen and the entire Danish fleet. In August 1808 during the Peninsular War, the 43rd fought in the Battle of Vimeiro which drove Napoleon's forces from Portugal. The campaign against the French went on when in May 1809 the 1st battalion of the 43rd, as part of Sir Robert Craufurd's Light Brigade, joined Sir Arthur Wellesley's army. The 43rd moved up to Tavalera but arrived too late; the battle of Talavera had been won before the battalion arrived. Only one company of the 43rd arrived in time to participate in the Battle. In 1810 the 43rd formed part of the Light Division under the command of Sir Robert Craufurd. The 43rd fought in the battles of the crossing of the Coa, Sabugal and Bussaco. The 1st Battalion continued to fight in the Peninsular War, they were present during the assault on the fortress of Ciudad Rodrigo in January 1812 and at the Siege of Badajoz in April 1812. After the disbanding of the Light Division in 1814, they were shipped to America to fight in the war of 1812. The 43rd acted as part of an at first succesfull Expeditionary Force, but was later defeated at the Battle of New Orleans. The 2nd Battalion of the 43rd landed in Walcheren, the Netherlands in 1809, where many men died of fever, before returning to England.

The regiment peformed mostly Garrison duties after the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. One of their last major engagements was in the indian Mutiny of 1857. In India, the regiment won its first Victoria Cross, awarded to Private Henry Addison in 1859. The regiment was shipped to New Zealand in 1863, to fight against the Maori. The 43rd led the storming at Gate Pah in April 1864 and took part in the assault on the fort at Te Ranga in June 1864. The regiment returned to England in February 1866. In 1881, the regiment merged into the Oxfordshire Light infantry Regiment, forming it's 1st Battalion.

Hello chaps

A good friend of mine is having a weird problem. For about two weeks or so he isn't able to find ANY server on NW, nothing seems to work. And no, he's not looking on LAN or favorites, just internet.

So if anybody knows something that could assist him, that would be great.
