    Hello! I know this is mainly a remake and still in development, but seeing some of the screenshots I hope the cannons will have soldiers manning them instead of the cannons simply moving on their own :D

    Edit: I was so excited that I didn't see there is a already a thread about this. Sorry !! :p

    Agreed, having units manning the cannons is great eye candy. It's one of those little things that actually make a game better.

    Defiantly. It's the little things that count!

    that's unnecessary thing..and that's not a thing that make game "better"..

    This little thing makes that count! Ghost manned cannons looks foolish. Visible artillerymen are well come.
    C2 game had fine artillery, however it also needed improvements. Horse drawn limbers which can haul cannons, howitzers are neccessary in C3. Foot and Horse Artilley Batteries also would be good.

    Played a C1 game and an AC:FB game. I must say, having fake AI units manning the cannon looks 100x better.

    Agree! Cannon crew is a must have and it is extreme pleasure to watch them work in the battle. Love it!

    If you're going to do "realistic" cannon, then we also need the caissons and battery wagons. :) AND please don't forget the means of supply for the troops, we need covered baggage wagons. And ambulances would be fun too.

    It isn't incredibly hard to do this, it is just very time consuming, it is simply a matter of producing a bunch more animations for cannons with crew instead of without. Wouldn't change the actual gameplay at all (it has already been stated that gameplay is essentially to be BTW) so there is no real reason NOT to do it.

    I agree. I want it too.

    Hello Tree - welcome to the forums!

    I think the majority of us would like to see crews (whether asthetically or not is another question), however realistically Cossacks 3 is a more modern repackage of Cossacks 1 - so it's unlikely we'll see new content (a shame imho as they have 'built-up' the quality of their ingame details throught Cossacks and American Conquest).

    As Foeurdr has mentioned, there is a thread created regarding cannons and their crews - hopefully the more folks that are active on there can at least garner some attention or response from GSC (though I think we would hope not the 'just create a mod' sort!).

    tldr - check out the mentioned thread link and create a fuss ;)

    It's certainly not a must have, but it's something i would love to see. Especially since they had crews on the cannons in AC and C2
