Both the KS Napoleon Mod and the Supplemental Maps Mod have been updated. You can find the links in the first post of this thread: KS Napoleon Mod Setup

Changes and additions:
More maps have been added.
Cavalry has been slowed to a trot, 12-14 MPH as opposed to 16-18 MPH.
Guns will rout when charging cavalry comes within 85 yd or 40 yd for charging infantry. Guns will retreat rather than rout if enemy cavalry or infantry is in melee with another unit within those distances. This allows the player the ability to place a unit in front of the guns, such as a square to protect them.
Retreating or routing enemy units will no longer cause the guns to rout.

Thanks Kevin.

Did the reduced sprite mixes in the French and Spanish infantry make it in?

Good Improvements

I did add this to the courier file:

ITEM Message Received I have received your message.

under ITEM Salutation My compliments sir.

Felt that it would help my confirming messages problem.

Email me the courier file and I'll add it to the next version.

By the way, I updated the Replay Viewer to include the new maps. The link is at the bottom of that 1st post.

How do those automatic replies and greetings work? Is it bound to a key press? Can you then free type more text in the message afterwards?

Just double click on the message and it transfer to the right side of the screen. If necessary, additional text can be added on the free text page. In other words, it's just a shortcut method of placing a standard reply in a message.

That's neat. I never knew such a feature existed. Is there a limit to how many standard messages the system can hold, and/or their length?

I don't' think there is there is a limit how many individual messages, but the list is quite long already. There is a limit on the standard length but I don't remember length limit.

From our first test of this new version of the mod.  A picture no Frenchman wants to see.
KS Napoleon Mod II 1.16 and KS SOW Supplemental Maps 1.10 Gunlin10

The 1st test of the changes made to the cavalry and artillery routing was very promising.  It was more difficult to rout the guns.  Slower doubletime moving by the cavalry makes it a little less of an dominating force since it takes a little longer to get to its target.  That also tires them out more, so the number of multiple charges is reduced.  Commanders will have to rest them more frequently.

I forgot to mention one other change that was made in the mod. Guns are a little more vulnerable to counter battery fire. Ask Mike for details. Sad

I echo Kevin's comments; the new artillery rout changes played very well. Cavalry a bit weaker, guns tougher. If infantry division commanders are more circumspect with placing their artillery and protecting it, we should see the mass disposal of artillery early in the game by daring cavalry rushes a thing of the past.

If you do get cavalry chasing your guns away then its now probably your fault and not another player being cunning and exploiting a loophole.
