question about new buildings?
Hi all,
I guess everything is mentionned in the tittle.
1- What are the new buildings that we can expect?
2- Will it be also possible to construct "rounder" walls? On all the screenhots I have seen everything looks like "square or diagonal".
3- Will it be possible to attch buildings directly to walls. I would like to make my "oriental" city feel more like a bazaar.
4- So far in the previous stronghold the terrain where you were able to construct was more or less flat. Is it possible now to construct "multi-level" castles (parts on flat bits othe parts on high cliffs etc)?
5- What about castle ditches?
6- Can someone tell me if a night and day cycle will be implemented?
7- I see that the graphic engine is the same as Stronghold 3, but of course its difficult to really see on screenshots or videos. Do you now if it's an enhanced engine? And if yes what are the difference beteween the two.

Here, I can give you a couple of answers from my book of random knowledge :P

1- Im not sure about the new buidlings, but you may/ or may not have seen that original buildings that stayed the same in the old strongholds have just been re-constructed in this (Eg. The iron mine LOOKS like a mine not a tiny hole in the ground with a chimney)

2- I don't know about rounder walls. Since it failed completely in SH3 i'd imagine they wouldn't do the same mistake, so probably no rounder walls.

3- You could still probably do that, like in the Original with the old Bakery, brewery and smiths (I take it thats what you mean.)

4- I think that would really depend on map designs. But you could still do that in the original Strongholds with Custom maps, but for defualt ones, I would imagine it would be too confusing for people who just started playing the stronghold series.

5- I take it you mean Spike pits? Then yes, if moats, then No.

6- There will be no dynamic day/night, but you will be able to select what time you want to play in.

7- I have no Idea.

Thanks for the answer, so saddly no real advance in the game...
Still the same stuff for about 13 years...

I will wait for a few reviews before I buy it as I was really disapointed about Stronghold III.
I have a so and so fealing about this one :(...

I share your doubts. I almost feel like just should have called it SC Redux. I'm hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

This might sound like a dumb question... but in Stronghold Crusader 2, i cant seem to figure out how to rotate my buildings. As in turn them before setting them in place. this is especially annoying for my gates and walling off my town. I've if there is a simple solution to this i would love to learn it. Please advise.
