WWI: Clash of Empires

Rate this Entry
This time I'll shed a light on the military side of the game.
I'll introduce mostly land units today since I have worked on these and their army system the most.

Units

Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
Garrison/Militia
  • Cheap
  • Are recruited from cities.
  • Only 5 units can be recruited from one city.
  • Can move on the neighboring hex of the city but no further.
  • When recruited they start only with rifles/small arms but can later equipped with AA, AT and different artillery pieces.
  • Will reduce dissent in the city.
  • High Moral


Infantry Division
  • Relatively Cheap.
  • Recruited from Army base.
  • Your basic fighting unit.
  • When recruited they start with small amount of MG's and field artillery but the number of these can be increased later.
  • Later can be equipped with AA and AT weapons.


Stormtroopers/Assault troops
  • Rather Expensive.
  • Recruited from Army base.
  • Available in later stages of the game.
  • Possible to upgrade them with light submachine guns, AT weapons and flamethrowers.
  • Start with MG's and Medium Artillery.
  • Fast moving, High moral.


Cavalry Division
  • Rather Expensive.
  • Recruited from Army base.
  • Possible to use them as infantry unit(will loose their mobility).
  • Fast moving.
  • Possible to equip them with MG's but not with artillery.


Engineer Division
  • Expensive.
  • Recruited from Army base.
  • Possible to equip them with all types of artillery, AA and AT weapons, flamethrowers.
  • Can build Lvl 2-3 trenches and forts.


Medium Artillery Division
  • Expensive.
  • Recruited from Army base.
  • Slow moving.
  • Can bombard neighboring hexes.


Heavy Artillery Division
  • Very Expensive.
  • Recruited from Army base.
  • Slow moving.
  • Their range is 2 hexes from their location.


Railway guns
  • Very Expensive.
  • Can be moved and used only when railway is present on hex.
  • very fast moving.
  • Their range is 3 hexes from their location.
  • Must be researched.
  • Can't be part of any Corps.


There are couple of others but I'm not sure whether I'll include them or not.


Army system

Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
While single divisions are good in certain roles they will loose to any larger army group.
So, it's possible to form Corps' and Armies to use your forces more efficiently.

Corps
  • Can include maximum of 5 divisions.
  • Can have 1 scout plane squadron.
  • Will have Headquarter which increase Combat Efficiency.
  • May receive a historical general.


Army
  • Can include maximum of 5 Corps'.
  • Can have 2 scout plane squadrons.
  • Will have Headquarter which increase Combat Efficiency.
  • Corps' can operate separately as long as they are next to the hex where HQ is located.
  • May receive a historical general.


Combat Efficiency(CE)

CE takes all different stats(food, ammo, supplies, moral etc) and transforms them into CE points.
Higher CE gives attack and defense bonuses in battles.
Headquarters and historical generals will add CE points.
CE will be recalculated after every battle and in the end of turn.

    wow dude this is a serious undertaking. how you going to handle it are you co hosting this time or is it just going to better automated than 30yw. i await very eagerly whats your timeline as of now?

    Yes, I know it will be a big game but I'm planning to co-host this whit 2 people. johnhughtom already offered me his help.
    Hopefully, it will be "better automated than 30yw". Just need us to insert some variables into spreadsheet and it will take care of everything else. At least that's my aim.
    Since I don't want to rush I plan to start this in the beginning of May.
    Things to do:
    *Battle system(especially navy) needs to be overlooked and units(mostly navy and air) needs to be balanced.
    *Buildings, their effects and bonuses need to be balanced.
    *Perhaps economical side of the game needs some redoing(make it much easier to follow).
    *"Graphics" need to be added(maps, map icons for units and buildings).

    May is the start of my exams. It will be fun juggling revision and the Austro-Hungarian military.
