    Default Parapets?

    Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere.......are there plans for any fortifications such as ramparts or parapets?

    Maybe.... we all know that the highest level fort is a star fort but what comes before that is a mystery. I think in a screenshot, in one of the menus you can see avaiable forts and one of them looked like a wooden palisade, but I may be mistakend.

    Some of the reviews/previews mention field fortifications like entrenchments. There are several types of forts mentioned also. The physics model will account for every projectile and real line of sight. If troops are behind something it will cover the exposed area making them hard to hit.

    But I also understand that splinters and spolling is modeled, so if they are taking cannon fire or air bursting shell the cover is not going to be so effective.
