    Default pike spacing mod II

    thank also alex gold who stumbled upon the hidden values.

    I change hidden radius and height of unit to achieve the closer spacing needed to prevent run throughs by enemy and help pike units to stick to swords longer before going to melee.

    make the highlighted changes to each EDU pike entry. note: radius and height are normally hidden so you will be adding them after the mass value.

    type Tercio Pikemen
    dictionary Tercio_Pikemen ; Tercio Pikemen
    category infantry
    class spearmen
    voice_type Heavy
    banner faction main_spear
    banner holy crusade
    soldier Tercio_Pikemen, 60, 0, 4, 0.25, 2

    stat_cost 1, 500, 155, 80, 185, 500, 4, 150
    armour_ug_levels 0, 1, 2, 3

    ;unit_info 10, 0, 7
    recruit_priority_offset 20

    works really well using both attacking directly or as AI uses them (march beyond)

    Interesting. Is this just for Tercio pikemen?

    But I have a thing for cannon...

    this is for any pike unit in any mtwII/ kingdoms mod or vanilla kingdoms. I assume for game vanilla as well but havent tested that one.

    just make the adjustments highlighted in each pike entry.

    here is a youtube video showing a battle in call of warhammer with the modified EDU. no micromanagment or any command after attack command at first of battle.

    another one showing pike militia against peasants. The outcome is predestined but the object here is to demonstrate that against a unit the pikemen are expected to defeat they hold their spearwall all the way until the enemy is defeated.

    Interesting video from call of warhammer with reduced radius pikemen

    and also with halberds (courtesy reiksfart from twc) as a secondary weapon.
