Q: Why Player cannot deploy Earthworks
A: Because there are no longer the UI button for it. AI do not need to use UI to issue commands. Earthworks were originally Empire Total War ability that still have its vestiges in the Shogun 2's data.

Not sure if I missedf something, but my LIne Infantry apparently can't use Square or 3-rank fire. I assume I need some research for it, but can't find the tech for it.

Noif recolor is instituted in the faction level, whereas this mod is on unit level. In other words, this mod will override Noif's.

I notice it modifies some of the unit uniforms. Out of curiousity, does this mod compatible with the famous Noif's FOTS recolor mod? I've been using both mods in my playthrough, it seems fine but just wanna know if there's an issue that I miss.

This is probably a bug but after reinstalling the game (i had to uninstall it for HDD space) now the Royal Marines have all their details in red rather than white and the sharpshooters are back to their vanilla uniforms

How to have everything without the uniform overhaul.

Metalltiger Dec 25, 2017 @ 12:15pm

Light Infantry instead of shooting in line volleys, now shoots from all ranks in platoon fire. They'll shoot from the left side of the line, rippling like wave to the right side.

Cav now get malus vs. Inf inside a Square

@The_Yogi it also happened when there was a little over 100 people in the regiment.
