    Sorry Condor_fly but thats not true.

    1. There are a lot of polygons look at the french church and the front of the academy. Shall I count them for you?

    2. Sorry no they were made with blank metall and then they were blued or painted with black. They were also made in manufactories in mass production.
    As cheap as possible no room for big decorations. Gold and copper was for the nobillity or special guard units like i wrote before.

    If you don't believe me read history books about the use of armor in the 17th century. (I can send you an ebook if you want.)
    Or take a look at the biggest collection of such armor pieces of the world. The Zeughaus in Graz (Austria) has 32 000 objects.
    Show me one copper or gold piece there:

    (look at the picture collection downwards)

    or use google searchengine:

    I have seen such weapon and armor collections in real life. My girlfriend worked at such a place for a while (she sorted and cleaned them.)

    Iam talking about this golden boy here:

    The french Kings Muskeetiers and Carabiniers were guard units recruited among the nobility. Mostly the not-first born sons who had no chance to inherit their dads title. These men were no regular soldiers. Have you cecked out my links? I have been in a lot of museums in Switzerland, Germany, France and Austria. I know what I am talking about.

    I am afraid that you maybe right.

    Generally you are right. Ritters used common armors without expensive golden or copper decoration, but that boy on your picture above maybe was cavalry officer or rich noble. They can wore sometimes decorative armours.

    In Cossacks I there were no cavalry officers. Only CossacksII and American Conquest had them. On some other screenshots there are large groups of them all in golden armor. So I don't think this is an officer. It would be cool if GSC would add them to Cossacks 3. So we modders don't have to do this.

    On the old CossacksI homepage there were much more news and upfates and screenshots : ( I guess that the publisher CDV did most of the marketing for this game and now that GSC is doing that all alone they don't have enough staff for it. On the other side I wonder what's so difficult about uploading a couple of screenshots each week.

    It is also interesting how they described the role of the priests and other units here. In the text it is right but in the game his role is completly different. Instead of boosting the morale he heals units.

    "Later pikes gave place to bayonets in close fight. Bayonets were surely important in hand-to-hand fight, but far not as good as pikes. Pikemen were the most battle-worthy infantry for close fighting"

    In the game the Bayonet is superior.:p

    "A musician was equipped with a sword and sometimes with a pistol, but with no armor."

    In game the drummer is a pure pacifist who can't hurt anyone.:D

  8. The golden boy looks like the rider,from cossacks1
    if priests were to boost morale,there should be a morale aspect in the game(which will not be),so priests act like surgeons,i think 18th century pikes will get the strength they deserve(but lose in train time)

    In C1 and C3 priests curing units's health, not boost morale

    Peering closely at the picture you can make out a windmill and some corn. In the absence of something related to the game I must confess I took to being nosey and looking around the room in which he was sat. The Father Christmas and Christmas trees on the door need to be taken down as to have them up now is bad luck (and may delay the release of C3!). He has lots of fruit to keep his energy levels up as he develops the game and a toilet roll because he is not allowed to leave his laptop to go to the bathroom...
