If I remember correctly, it only effects units that are in front, if they are stacked then they both fire as one.

stacking is when 2 or more formations occupy the same space.

It increases your firepower, and defense. a good tactic, but is not really realistic.

Stacking formations spoil this game. This horrible tactic is absolutely not realistic and looks ugly in the game.

That is very bad that we have got this stacking shit there.

Formations are not pack of cards and people are not so thiny like plastic cards. Well, how many devils occupy the same place?

Soldiers could not and should not figth or stay in stacking formations.

I don't think so. I n my opinion it solution probelm with mix gruop of musketeers and pikemen like swedish brigade. Maybe it is increases your firepower and defense but it have few defecst:
- problems with moving it anywhere else,
- vulnerable to artillery.

It would be normal if people stack max. 2 formations...

Between soldiers in formation were space, right? 30 cm maybe 50? I don't know precisely how big (long? great?) space.
But...

Quote (Nowy)

... you have right. It is impossible to fight sword, rapier or sabre when you don't have space to move.

It is any possibility to write script to eliminate stacking of units?


I apologize for my english.

No, it wouldn't be normal! Stacking formations are very bad. Have you ever saw two soldiers which occupy the same space in reality?
It is simply imposible. If two formations stay at the same place, their soldiers needs separate splace for every one man. Even in crowded formations, people need their space.

Every one man needs his "independent" space. Gaps between soldiers were regular orders. They didn't stayed one in next one how we've got in stacking formations in C2.

Think that it is possible.

From my tests it seems that stacking in AC is every bit as bad as stacking in C2, which is strange. If I remember rightly in my conversations with Gex he stated that stacking was one of the main reasons why he did not move across to the C2 engine, while in AC the ability to check LoS meant that stacking was a danger to your own troops and thus AC was more realistic.

So am I missing something? Is AC 'more realistic' with regards attempts to reduce stacking?

You can stack an unlimited amount of troops in one spot if you wanted to. Making a "line of death"!!
I guess arty would take it out pretty easy though.

First thing I thought was to change the geometry of the unit, but for some reason it only happens when they are in formation. And in formation apparently they do not have geometry. dry
