    Just an idea. In real life a unit wouldn't march through it's own troops to turn around, the rear line would just become the front line. Perhaps a key press to achieve this would be useful. It wouldn't happen automatically as that would wreck flanking and attacking from behind, You'd have to be warey though so that you press the key in time.

    My troops turn around quite fast enough already thank you.

    Be like that I was thinking of realism although after more thought I reckon it's OK as it is

    I was refering to their tendency to pack up and go home at the first opportunity

    Maybe in real life the unit doesn't switch like that.

    Maybe the guy in the front has been picked to be in fornt, and the guys in the rear rank are the sergeants.

    Maybe the unit does have to 'turn around' instead of just reversing direction.

    Usually the high honoured men get packed at the front. Check logfiles and you'll find the first 20 or so men have higher honour than the rest.

    Of course this doens't make any difference in MP, as all the men are equal honour..

    Doh! Sorry, I'd probably have spotted that if someone else had started the post but I reckon If it's your own thread you subconciously take things a little more literaly. Ah well, if it's any consolation: LOL

    I've seen units more or less invert their rows to make a 180 before. That's plenty fast enough for me.
