can you make a cosmetic version

Ahh yeah okay, what do bamboo walls look like then? I've only gotten the light infantry to set up stakes on the ground.
The_Yogi  [author] Jan 29 @ 4:43am 
Oh, those are Earthworks. Only AI can do it.
Bantichai Jan 28 @ 11:50pm 
Thanks for responding, I'm going to guess you don't work on this mod anymore but yeah, I tested it again in a custom battle, I was the defending side. The AI had shogunate infantry and guard infantry deploy bamboo walls "brown coloured ramps?". I tried with the units you listed, I can't seem to see any box on the side of the screen. What direction left or right? Cause I really can't seem to see anything.

Does it only work in campaign when your army stands still for like a turn? I only run three order mods, no agents mod, naval uniform reskin and a mod that adds commerce to your cities, perhaps I'll try disabling them.

Player can deploy bamboo wall when defending in field batte during deployment period. Its a box on the side of the screen.

What? Guard Infantry shouldn't deploy bamboo walls, AI or not. The units that could are:
Matchlock Kachi
Yari Kachi
Spear Levy
Kyoto Police
Levy Infantry

"However, the AI can build earthworks when the Player cannot. Behind this, units can survive even though outgunned 3 to 1."

Just read that, are you meaning to say that only the AI can deploy bamboo walls? :/
Bantichai Jan 28 @ 5:14am 
Hi there, everything in this mod seems to be working except for deploying the bamboo walls. I tried the custom battles and campaign battles, the AI seems to be able to deploy the walls with Shogunate Guard infantry, shogunate infantry and levies but for the life of me I can't.

I've always made sure I am defending, but I can't see anywhere how to deploy the walls. Is the bambo walls an ability? Or something you deploy? If it is, not sure where the "deployment menu" is like in Rome 2.

To be honest, in the first place the Battle AI won't be as good as the player. It doesn't even know how to make a proper firing line. They know how to use advanced firing drills though, and one-on-one can outshot your lines. This is much less the case in grand battles where you position your lines properly, there the AI lines tend to crumple.

Light Infantry Behaviour is pretty much an advanced form of loose formation - but the AI since the start never used loose formation, its the same story.

Square Formation and Pike Wall are useful, when you play at Very Hard and Legendary, where the AI get cheat buffs in melee - It give your infantry at least a fighting chance against melee rushes.

Stakes...what are stakes? *died running through stakes*

However, the AI can build earthworks when the Player cannot. Behind this, units can survive even though outgunned 3 to 1.

Sorry for the lateness of this response.

Thanks for the reply. From what you say, it seems like the AI would do fine. The only things that I see that might cause some imbalance would be the AI not being able to use square formation and light infantry behavior. In your experience, does square formation and skirmish behavior give the player an unfair advantage in battles, or is it still pretty balanced?
The_Yogi  [author] Dec 24, 2015 @ 9:44am 
Hmmm, as far as my experience:

All Buff Abilities: AI use it whenever possible

- 3 Rank Fire: AI use it whenever possible
- Kneel Fire: AI use it whenever possible
- Earthworks: AI use it every time.
- Mass Fire: AI automatically use it.

- Bamboo Wall and Oodate Pavise: AI occasionally use them, but rarely.
- Pike Wall: AI use it when defending, but break out of formation to countercharge.

- Square Formation: Never seen
- Diamond Formation: Never seen
- Swooping Eagle: Never seen
- Light Infantry Behaviour: Never seen

- Stakes: AI don't even understand what stakes is.
