    Hi

    the reason I kind of stopped modding was due to 2 things.
    1. I could not make the AI better/more aggressive
    2. it was kind of bad because once a new patch appeared everything was set back to normal and you had to change everything again. While most was copy paste it was still very annoying.

    Even though I kind of like new dlc/nations and so on it stops me from creating mods. Its not worth spending the time once you have to do everything again and again.

    Are there any infos how many new dlc/nation patches or so on will appear in the future?

    New nations will come out until the end of the year (holiday season). There are 23 nations planned for the final product and we only have 16 right now.

    3 DLCs and maybe 2 more seasonal events.

    the new scottish expansion will appear in a few days.
    then I wait until the first patch (most likely a week or so)

    maybe I will make a mod then. However I just hope the next patch after that will be far in the future.

    Modding with all these patches is quite hard. It has been a lot of work for me to keep updating OCMOD3 after the patches. It takes a whole re-merge and re-check of many of the key files each time. Then there was that patch that broke many mods for weeks... and nearly broke my spirit. LOL. All this overhead of updating work means less quality modding time for developing your mod further. So much time is spent just keeping the mod running after patches. I am retired so I have the time but is no fun rebuilding stuff you have already built.

    However, I encourage you to keep trying and use the good tools like Winmerge and Notepad++. These help a lot. Then with constant modding and upgrading of the mod after patches you get into a practiced routine and can develop procedures and protocols for updating more quickly.

    NB. On Steam my name is Crazy Cossack.

    That's sadly the main reason I don't make gameplay changing mods, learned my lesson with Age of Mythology Extended Edition about an year ago.

    At this stage, I am fanatically dedicated to continuous maintenance and development of OCMOD3. Whether I will burn out at some time in the future I don't know. I hope not. :)

    But in two years say (from original release of C3) I hope OCMOD3 will be substantially finished and stable with C3 being finished and stable too. I live in hope. Currently, we are continuing OCMOD3's development and its ongoing balancing across units and nations.

    Agreed, I really envy your dedication, as I was once so dedicated to my Age of Mythology mod, but then continuous patching broke my will to update it any further.

    I really hope you do finish it at one point in time.

    Cheers.

    The most important thing for this new moment is adding new units for old factions like Spain, Venice, England , Algieria , Turkey. Countries should be more unique.

    Should be more 18 c. unique units esspecialy for Austria and Russia

    Ofcourse it would be nice to see the Ottoman and Venice campaign - something completely new in the our series. I am looking forward to the Tartars and Lithuania as new factions.

    I believe definitely that in someday we will see Spain and Algeria Campaign with desert maps and Bedouins.

    I agree, Russia, Austria, England and perhaps France should have unique 18th Century infantry units.

    remember that every new unique unit also has to be balanced with is pretty hard.
    and if you want to make a mod and have to change all stuff that isnt fun either.

    I would have no problem if just their visual is different. in C1 for example Hungary had unique 17c muskets, they had another name (not totally sure) but at least a unique visual. Thats enough for me.

    also austira, england and france all have unique 18c shooter without melee attack.

    Spain and England have only one unique unit , Venice no have even one. This should be changed if developers want to make the game more interesting. We are a community of players and we have the right to require changes. People want real Cossacks 3 not Cossacks European Wars HD.

    I meant unique 18th Century Musketeer and Grenadier units, but yes, you are right about the balancing act of these units.

    Would be interesting to know what will happen after the golden age. Then we will have all nations from back to war + scotland but as far I remembered there were also some additional nations in country.script
    12 : sid := 'mis';
    22 : sid := 'tat';
    23 : sid := 'lit';

    so most likely one DLC with only one somewhat different nation like scotland and one dlc with 2 similar nations.

    Too bad, I hoped for an end of DLC and patches.

    lit is Lituania if I'm not mistaken, no idea about the other 2 tho.

    Edit: tat meaning Tatars?
