I was able to remember some bugs. For example, the Zouaves' guns didn't show up, this goes for more French regiment, and when you play as the French guards, your hands aren't in the gloves. The uniform of a British regiment doesn't show up, so the only thing you see is the head with the cap on it. For the Ottomans, it's quite alot, one of the main issues being a loading error when you select the Ottomans to play as them, which also causes your game to freeze. That's about all I remember. And regarding the options, I would suggest option 1.

I know I am a wee bit late for feedback. I have been enjoying the mod for sometime now despite it being in alpha and using bots. The Uniforms look fantastic, as do the maps. I have only noticed 4 bugs thus far. Cavalry seem to have their hands showing through the gloves, The Royal Welch only don't have uniforms, The officer of the Royal Welch has some head showing through his hat and some French units don't have guns. Great work with the mod and I really look foreword to some other regiments.

Great mod! However, shouldn't there be more British regiments? You've posted quite alot of pictures of other regiments, which I would like to see added. I've also encountered quite alot of bugs and errors, primarily on the Ottoman, British and French side. I hope you're able to locate and fix them.

Thanks for your feedback!

There are more British (as well as French and Russian) regiments, but there was no room for them. I'm still thinking about how and where to add them
The options are:
1) add new unit sections for winter and summer uniform, uniforms of 1854 and of 1855 and so on,
2) add whole new allied faction with different uniforms
3) leave these uniforms as they are or slightly change current set of units, and all other uniforms add to singleplayer mod if I'll make it.
The British regiments are choosed mainly because of their musicians, each regiment at that time had their own pattern of musicians' lacing and of drums, and there is not so much information, so I added those regiments, which regimental lacing and drums I could find.

As for bugs and errors - that's the whole point of release of the alpha, to find them. So please PM me or post here bugs you've found, and I'll fix them. While making the mod simply there is no possibility to check all by myself, one man can't find all bugs :)

About the no room for more uniforms:

Speak to the North and South devs, they have managed to insert a ‘Next Page’  button on regiment select menu, meaning they can put a lot more units in the game, have a look, considering the amount of excellent uniforms you’ve created, it’d be a shame if you didn’t use most of them.

Thanks! Almost all of these bugs I saw and I think fixed them, when I'll fix some more bugs and hopefully finish or at least improve Alma map, I'll release a patch, I hope next week.

Thanks, but I think that there is no need in adding more uniforms per faction. In that time troops fought in large numbers and small variety of uniforms, so for relatively small maps of the game there must be 3-4 uniforms top. Besides, only British army will have a variety of uniforms, new Russian and French units will look almost the same. And also units must differ in stats and weapons, and any new units will have the same stats and weapons as the existing ones, and I don't think it is right. Also there is a problem with finding information about musicians' uniforms and drums painting of British regiments, each of them which had their own ones, I've spent enough of my time and money to make existing musicians.
So what I could do is just to add a winter uniform section and make it usable only on autumn and winter maps, but again - it will have visible changes only for British and Turkish army, because French and Russians wore greatcoats all the time, so maybe no change is needed at all. But I will decide that later, for now I'll need to fix bugs and finish new maps finally.
Anyway, the uniforms I've already made I'll add to the singleplayer mod for Warband (or who knows, maybe on Bannerlord), which will follow this mod, there can be used all the uniforms.

Made a Steam group, feel free to join it :)

BTW, I think I finally made my server visible online, so there might be an event soon (I hope so at least)

The Ottomans are perfectly functional now, but for one unit, there's a big black line, don't know how to explain it. On the British side, there's now apparently a French Chasseur uniform, the hands of the Russian dragoons (if you play as them) still don't show up, if you play as the French Grenadier Guards, your hands still don't fit into the gloves. Furthermore, as far as I've checked, most stuff is fixed.

Thank you for your quick feedback, it's very useful. As for the black line of some Ottoman units - I thought I've fixed it, it must be something with rigging. I've certainly fixed it for two or three Ottoman uniforms, when I've tested the mod afterwards - there were no such bugs, but I could see not every uniform. Next time you see this black line - make a screenshot, please, so  I can understand which uniform to fix.
As for French uniform on British side - it's curious, I'll look into it. As for gloves and hands - maybe I've missed something, I'll check it all today in the evening.


BTW, I'm interested in community opinion. Is it better to release many small patches as soon as I fix or add something, or to release a patch once a week, so there will be less patches and more fixes and stuff within each patch?
