Forgive me if this has been asked in another location. Will there be a "prone" feature? I feel it would make the game more immersive, as that offers more options and was actually done in the war. You don't have to make a moving animation for it, and I understand if you think it unbalances the game.

Perhaps have it as a server option?

I remember a few scenes in Gods & Generals where they did that at Fredericksberg battle iirc.

Found this page with pics in regards to sharpshooter regiments and reloading while prone:

Not sure if going prone during a line battle was done often though.

Cavalry and artillery animations. My question is how would you do that.

They won't be able to get motion capture for horses I believe. There will probably be 3-4 sets only that they need to do: 1) Idle 2) trot 3) gallop 4) swim. Those can be done by hand I suppose.
The death anims will probably be done via ragdolls.

Using Kinect for MoCap is indeed a great idea, I was curios when you announced early on that you planned to use MoCap, And I must say, I'm happy you'll manage to pull it off.

Or a Ninjaish move were you kick their feet out and fall, kind of like getting hit by a horse.
