Redcoat with Melee Combat Animations 2016-10-05

Redcoat with Melee Combat Animations

  1. SaibotLieh
    This is a modification of the redcoat animation set. I've added the pikeman melee combat animations to the set, resulting in redcoat who, when attack in close combat, will fight back with their bayonet.
    No extra files or modifications are needed as long as the directory structure is unchanged.
    If the redcoat also should engage in close combat when fighting range units, the bActAsRanged entry of the redcoat should be changed to <bActAsRanged>0</bActAsRanged>. However, this way the only time when the redcoat shoot will be when they do a first strike.
