View Full Version : Supplies, transports, storehouses and ambushing them..

Hello! New here.

As I understand it resource collection is fairly automated - what I was wondering was - will we be able to see workers carrying goods from A to B eg gold ore from a mine to a goldsmith or castle or storehouse ( as in the "Settlers" (blue byte) games) ?

And if so will it be possible to ambush them and interrupt supplies..

Supplies and the control of supply lines can be a fun part of strategy games and I hope will also be in this one. It adds an extra level of detail because capturing buildings doesn't have to be the only way to weaken the enemy, and makes capturing roads just as important as capturing castles. (gets more fun if you have a harbour as well)

Will there be anything like that in this game?

Good luck and I'm looking forwards to a XBOX 360 version by the way (though the games sounds like it might be good enough to make it worth buying a gaming PC).

Oh, and has anything been done on the underground sections at all - eg how about being able to undermine city walls etc..

First off, there will be trading and I wouldn't see why you couldn't interupt it or ambush it. And second, I don't think they will have it in this game but maybe in the expansion for the dwarves.
