Unit names

Post by Prof_GamerARCHIVED » Wed Dec 13, 2017 7:06 pm

1) All engineer units in the game are named "german engineer". Is this a bug or what?

2) I personally think we should rename SMG unit to "(nationality) SMG infantry" or "(nationality) SMG squad", AT rifle unit to "(nationality) AT rifle squad", flamethrower unit to "(nationality) Flamethrower infantry" or "(nationality) Flamethrower squad" and Mortal units to "(nationality) Mortar squad". What your opinion guys?

Interesting topic it would be like age of strategy no special units just a different color.

And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

What are you talking about? I just said we should rename some infantry units.

Sounds like an improvement of the current names.

My idea is different. All nations have unique names for their infantries. I also want every nations to have different infantry types trainable with many unique infantries.

We can give them different names, but giving them the types or names of their weapons as their names is just lame.

actually i think it is the best naming the armament in cases where there are no other distinguishing option (like if a formation had a nickname like "brown-bessy squadron" or something)

I still think letting the player dictate what to name their infantry is a better idea.
