Just having a quick go of Medieval: Total War 2 and realised the English archers can build stakes, so building stakes in the mod won't be unique like I first thought, not to mind as at least in the S.A.M. mod the archers actually build the stakes themselves and they don't just appear out of nowhere. biggrin

Hey these look great! i was just wondering how they will function in game i.e will they deal damage to units charging through or will they be more like a defensive palisade?

Currently they form a battlefield obstacle, to slow cavalry units down when attacking the archers, I was considering adding an attack value to them if a an enemy unit gets close to them, I will have to work out if this is possible, I have a feeling it might be able to be done, for example in American Conquest the Inca's have the blowpipe unit that will blow/fire a poisoned tipped dart at the enemy, when the enemy is hit it won't die straight away, its health slowly decreases (unless the unit finds a priest which will heal it) I was thinking it maybe possible to add this to the stakes.
I was also considering having bundles of branches/twigs that you can light on fire that cause damage, this is much like the barrels in American Conquest: Divided Nation which you can build and then blow up at your choosing (it has a fuse so when you press delete it times itself to blow up).
So you could use these fires on the battlefield to deter the enemy attacking a certain spot on the map or to stop a direct cavalry charge, you could also build these fires close to enemy buildings to cause damage.
