Thanks a lot
It increases your firepower, and defense. a good tactic, but is not really realistic.
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...
Formations are not pack of cards and people are not so thiny like plastic cards.
Between soldiers in formation were space, right? 30 cm maybe 50? I don't know precisely how big (long? great?) space.
Soldiers could not and should not figth or stay in stacking formations.
... 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?
