Max amount of troops in one area

Postby JakubTyl » Wed Feb 03, 2016 12:59 am

I was wondering, if the devs tested the maximum amount of possible NPC troops in one instance/battle... What is the cap before it starts to be unstable? How massive can battle be... is it dozens, hundreds, thousand?

I hope it becomes huge, but Im guessing not that big, but when I was fighting the goblins, a ton of them ganged up and I killed them all with that AOE spell thingy

Fire it at those annoying ginger alcy's in the tavern. They are more annoying than the Skyrim guards :lol: Stand there long enough and you get them all sync'd saying the same thing every few moments

Now that I read this, I start to think, that it is an very important to know which number of men we can expect at a single battlefield...thousands would be really really, but I actually don't think this will be possible

Look at Mount and Blade. It's designed to have crappy graphics so computers can handle the amount of soldiers on field. Imagine doing that whilst running RTS in the background. How big of a scale can we realistically expect? 500-600 total for majority of users still?

Don't forget, even Total War has a "soft" cap limit to how many units can ever be present. And that's with it scrolled out and units essentially being blocks that wobble.

Yeah, I know that it is very unrealistic, but HOPE DIES LAST!

They could implement it as an optional possibillity for people with strong hardware (Sadly not me^^)
But yeah, your are right... at least maybe 300 to 400 soldiers on each side
