So if you got much help from experienced coders of NW, can we other mod developers get that help too and you would finish our scripts? :)
Would be a bit unfair, if it would be one way.

Hinkel does have a very good point here. However there might be underlying reasons for fse's involvement, so I guess I'll wait to hear the full story behind it.

On another note, good luck with the new features! (Shrapnel was something I was thinking about for b&i but I only have a limited amount of time) And since DanyEle and Rig have helped me in the past, let me know if I can do anything small for the next release.
Check out mods I've worked on: Blood and Iron: Age of Imperialism, and North and South!

Just wondering, in IE 2.0, will bots be able to shoot? I've been really wanting to see bots having a purpose so I can get some awesome custom battles.

It's not a current planned feature. Due to the new firing system, it would require a lot of work to do it.

Looks very good, I personally love the bullet casings flying out of the gun, adds a really nice touch to the game. I also can't wait to go in a balloon and see the map from the skies. I do wonder though, if you're in the basket and your balloon gets shot, do you stay in the basket until the basket hits the ground, in which case the fall damage would kill you, or do you die right away when the balloon is destroyed?

In actual fact, that is something the team is still currently deciding. Just proves, great minds think alike eh?

You made a mistake with the ejection of the cartridge on the Maxim. It is supposed to come out of an ejection port under the barrel, not through the side.

Example:

You are quite right, in fact, I do actually remember watching a tv programme a while ago explaining how the machine guns worked.

Thanks for reminding me of this. I will make sure to take up the matter.

Thanks, Baillie.
