Single player option?
« on: January 21, 2022, 08:17:55 pm »
I love what I'm seeing in this game, but I don't have the time in my schedule to join a clan/regiment and attend drills, etc.  I sure wish there will eventually be a single player option for guys like me who just want to play a short while at odd times and then leave.

That's a thought. I'll look into it. I love the commander mode, although I wish units routed instead of fighting to the last man.

I should add that I also prefer single-player because I like the old school mount and blade single player campaigns where players recruited their force and interacted with NPCs.  I think this could be done for ACW, especially if one limited the campaign to a single region like Missouri-Eastern Kansas-North Arkansas, or perhaps Virginia-Maryland-Pennsylvania.  Players could recruit a force (which is historical) and interact with other officers. Instead of being awarded a castle or city a character could be promoted or earn some special weapon or something. I think that would be fun and add some context to the battles.

Just my 2 cents.

OK. I apologize for being long winded, but the point I'm trying to make is that BCoF could have as much or more to offer as a real-time strategy game with campaign play. I know I'd like the game much more if it were RTS commander mode with a chance of promotion, etc. and I'll bet you would sell a lot more copies of the game if you could pull this off. As a FPS it's good, but as a RTS with units routing & etc. it would be AWESOME.

Would be fun but the devs are on the crunch just to finish bcof for mutiplayer atm so this would have to be far in the future. That and the whole game is set up for Mutiplayer atm

Maybe a few years after release it could happen it would just be a insane amount of work

Thank you for even considering it and getting back to me! 

If there is anything I can do to support you guys just ask. I already worked as a volunteer for Grand Tactician, Civil War and will happily support you as well.

I think there is a mod called L'Aigle which gives NW a single-player option so go check oit out!
So let’s just ignore someone like Maskman who knows next to nothing about leading and the capabilities of regiments performing well in a linebattle type of event.
To state that anyone on a “good day could beat the 77y/15thYR” is just a meme of its own, if that was the case why don't you beat the 77y or 15thYR then!?
