Hello, Sorry to be alittle late to the party but i have to ask. Is there going to be a minimum number of players to start a regiment? Like in RuneScape where you need 4 other people before you can actually create on to prevent a massive number of 1-man Regiments?. And Secondly, for groups in NW like the French Army who I a part of, Will there be a way to link up multiple regiments in a company or battalion with this system or have to stay separate?

Refer to this. I posted this idea a very long time ago, and it was taken into consideration. https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=2341.0

I'll quote it. Sorry.

Hello community,

So, last night, while laying in bed having one of my almost daily anxiety attacks, I thought of a most novel idea for Battle Cry of Freedom that would be great for the clan/regiment system. Let's say there are these six clan/regiments that are very much in good relation with one another, and want to form an alliance of sorts. The clan/regiments are the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 27th, and 33rd Virginia Infantries and the Rockbridge Artillery Battery. Get where I'm going with this? Would if these clan/regiments were able to form together and create the 1st "Stonewall" Brigade? How awesome would that be? Now, the benefits of doing something, such as this, would allow for the clan/regiments better stability, allow for maybe "Brigade Battles," and people will know who is part of this most famous brigade.

On the note of browsing for clan/regiments, which was mentioned a whileback, when people look for them, they can also have an option to search "Brigades." When searching for a Brigade, a list of all the Brigades will pop (I.E. The "Stonewall" Brigade, Braggs Brigade, Irish Brigade) where the person who is browsing can click on the brigade, and on the side if a dialog box it will have information about the clan/regiments that make up the brigade.

Active Brigades:
1st "Stonewall" Brigade
2nd New York "Braggs" Brigade
Union "Irish" Brigade
...
...
...









This is the list that would pop up
when you click the "Brigades" tab.
                    1st "Stonewall" Brigade:
Infantry
2nd Virgina Regiment of Volunteers
4th Virgina Regiment of Volunteers
5th Virgina Regiment of Volunteers
27th Virgina Regiment of Volunteers
33rd Virgina Regiment of Volunteers
Cavalry

Artillery
Rockbridge Artillery Battery




The person browsing for a brigade
clicked the "Stonewall Brigade" and
a small dialog came up with the regiments
that are in the Brigade.


I just thought this would be an excellent addition to BCoF. It would make browsing for clan/regiments a little bit easier and it'll allow the person browsing to pick a Brigade they like and a regiment within it. Once accepted into a clan/regiment part of a brigade, the player as well, becomes part of the brigade and is listed in the clan/regiment he is in.

I'd love some feedback from the community. I just thought this would be a most excellent addition to the BCoF "browsing for clan/regiments."

Thanks,

kpets

You're concerned about American things for an American based war?

Where do you see that Americans use American ranks for European "things?" This is the American Civil War, not the European Civil War.

Makes it fucking matter. People should be free to use whatever rank they choose.

Perhaps they should offer it as a choice. Which Riddlez thinks they already do.

Stop whining about everything that displeases you.

Please do not think a post is automatically of a displeased tone if you think it sounds that way. More than that, don't make a bid deal out of it; matters are you'll make the situation worse.

Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.

How did what I said come off as whining? Are you here to instigate another fight? Of course people are allowed to use whatever ranks they want, I simply said that this is the American Civil War, not the European Civil War, thus the main use of American ranks.

Seriously, every time I see you comment, it's some snobby remark to someone.

Just ignore him man, he's only looking for attention. He's like O'Finnigan.

I've been actually curious how this could be implemented into BCoF. Does that mean that the person gets chevrons in game to reflect his rank? (You're a Corporal in an infantry regiment, you get two blue chevrons).

Riddlez was of the understanding that it would be displayed in the name, the rank.
But that you must choose the class, which you can custimize the rank in game.

Riddlez's question is, how does one get the authority to change one's rank.

By being an officer allowed to do so in a regiment.

Can we get an update on the whole tag system ingame/ranks on uniform/custom uniform thing?

Because if need be, you could use a system like in APB where you're able to choose clothes and then put decals onto said clothes (So you could place a ranks on the sleeves or shoulders for example)
