This is just my forts how I like them including trenches.
hope you can use them.
The trenches are kewl.
Love it, love it, love it, thanx
Hunter, you are my new god. Well actually, your more of a lesser god, right after Kinboat, who is like Ra or Anubis, but you are up there man, like, um, the gator one, whatever it was called.
Great Work!!! (did I mention I'm a WWI nut?)
We're not worthy
Thanks your faith in me is appreciated
I hope its of use I have always liked the civ industrial fort but trenches just felt more appropriate. The were in use from the start of the industrial era till... well in some cases to a lesser degree even today.
O and Im becoming a WW1 nut to. Next up the Kwagon and Char2c.
I took the liberty of making a .gif copy of the .pcx to post as a preview.
They have a lot of aspects from real trenches (or at least look like they do) They have the front line trench, second line, the communication trench, a machinegun pillbox, even a listening-post (the little trench that sticks out up front)
Simply put, AMAZING work
Where to use the trenches? I've only 1.29.
Grreat trenches! Thanks Hunter!
Btw, WWI nuts, check out Otto Dix's graphic serie called "Krieg". Helps you to get into the creepy mood of the place.
@Mike.doc: It's graphics to replace industrial era fortress graphics.
Great piece of work.
Those are great trenches Hunter. They look really realistic.
Can anyone post a screenshot showing how multiple tiles look next too each other in the game, won't have a comp for three more weeks.
I can tell you now, if won't be long lines of interconnecting trenches. This just replaces the fort, that's all.
Personally, although my first opinion of this graphic has not changed, since I use fortresses as static army-storing spots, I find the trenches to be too temporal for my garrison purposes...
Gogf needed trenches for his WW1 mod and I felt like helping a new modder, so I decided to convert these to Conquests.
Hunter's trenches for C3C No changes made, just the graphics pasted over industrial fort.
But since Conquests also has barricades, I took the liberty to add them by copy/pasting a new pillbox and adding some grey stuff resembling barbed wire. (I'm still waiting for Hunter's "ok" for these, but I believe I'll get it. )
Hunter's trenches for C3C + Drift's modification for barricades
Here's a preview of the barricade next to original trenches.
Love these trenches! I also like Drift's barricade! Adding it my WWI scenario...
Since in WW1 it was the soldiers themselves who dug the trenches, I think it would be appropriate to give the ability to build fortresses to infantry.
I know, the idea isn't new and has been proposed for the legionary, too.
IIRC the only problem was that the AI didn't use this ability. But I heard that in one of the Conquest scenarios (I don't play them. Just epic games) the legionaries were given exactly this ability. Now my question to the Conquest-scenario-players: Does the AI use this ability? And if yes, will this also work in an epic game?
BTW: I love this graphics! Maybe it would be possible to extend the trenches a little bit, so that neighbouring trench-tiles look like a connected system?
I think that 4 barricades on WW1 you can use the original ones, only a row.
Something like this
Very nice. Thanks
These trenches are very nice
I second that.
