    I logged on to check for any news of a release date (Christmas adverts reminding me that December creeps ever closer) to see that the general view is that we will not see C3 until next year.

    I do not disagree with anything said above about the desirability of running a development blog or giving more information about the game because silence and the repetition of basic information that has not changed since June simply fosters enmity between developer and fan base. Given that the idea of C3 appears to be to facilitate fan involvement in future development and mod making it is not helpful to leave fans guessing. It would, perhaps, make better sense to announce the game only when important dates such as release date and pre-order dates have been negotiated and finalised and then we would not be left in the dark worrying that C3 may not see the light of day.

    That having been said it is, after all, only a game so nothing to get stressed about and normally when I post something along these lines there is a sudden flurry of activity and screen shots that leaves me a little red faced for having complained. Hopefully it will happen again!

    No news about the beta or anything yet? When will we know what we get with pre-order??

    We know almost nothing at this moment. Unfortunately. No new screenshots, no trailer or gameplay video, no new information, just nothing. I'm starting to be disappointed.

    Developers should really have to work on better marketing. That's how it really should not do. It is a pity. This game, in my opinion, deserves better promotion.

    Very nice. New buildings. I like how the mines other resources blend with the landscape as if they were all part of the same. That's the way it should be. I see donkeys (pack mules) by themselves are those units or just there to embellish the scene. Will we be able to control the donkeys(pack mules) ?

    The games graphics are absolutely stunning! So nicely done.

    It is impossible to say as yet, but there are a lot of supply wagons, and pack mules, I even see peasants carrying a chest on their backs! Is this just for show, or is there a new supply system in the game?

    I even see some red fruit in some of the wagons, as well as grain sacks. And even some gardens besides some of the homes with peasants working them.

    Even some troops in marching formation on the roads.

    Of course this could all be staged for the camera.

    Anyway, I for one would love to see a battle video. something simple, from a single animation thrusting, or shooting. to perhaps some formations lined up against each other.

    Can not wait to get my hands on this beautiful game!

    I don't think at release the pack horse will have an use outside the campaign, they were present in Cossacks 1 too for some missions. I think they stated it in a commentary (on youtube).
    For your chest Daddio I think it's just a faggot, so the animation for wood gathering.

    Nice pictures as always, thanks GSC !

    I agree, a new animation video like the one of the musketeer would be a nice change or one about ship !
  14. I did notice that on the second picture, some of the houses are rotated to face different directions. Does this mean we will be able to face buildings in different directions? Being that this is a 3D game now, this feature would be helpful especially for buildings with defensive fire capabilities but that have blind zones. Had the rotation ability been applied to AC, I would have been able to construct block houses and other buildings with defensive fire in a more effective position. The fortresses have blind zones where troops could come through with little to no losses and the same with block houses and other structures. This is something to think about especially when modding.

    Well, glad colorful screenshots of Prussia - my favorite nation (together with Ukraine, of course) and now the news:
    1. Now the houses will have their own animation - farmers working in the garden, and I'm interesting - will it also bring some food or just visual beauty?
    Houses rotated 90 degrees relative to each other. Perhaps houses (and other buildings) with their tab will rotate randomly.

    2. Now we saw the pikemen of the 18th century
    3. The mine is located in the mountains and very harmonious with them, but if the plain card is randomly rolled, what then?

    4. A stone deposits are now much more bigger!

    If the peasant now produce their own food, I will lodge my troops inside their house to economise food and money ! :D

    Very well, we can see next two screenshots.

    The game graphic is very good. Landscape, buildings and units are detailed and beautiful. Scaling is acceptable.
    Mines and stone rocks looks fine. Pack horses, supply wagons, small vegetables gardens close to houses are nice.

    Maybe we will see in the game better agriculture, food production and resources transportation.

    We can see cavalry squads marching on the road. I wonder will the roads in the game?

    New features in the game would be very interesting.

    Nowy gave a overall rating of 4/10 to this two screenshots, a really high note in Nowy standard ! :p
