  • Hi All

    In case you are not aware of the history of the SYW it took place between 1756 and 1763.Part of the SYW was the French and British in America and in Europe the initial protagonists were Frederick the Great of Prussia and Charles of Austria.

    The Battle of Leuthen was a European battle and a major victory for Frederick the Great over Austria. When you consider that the Prussian army had approximately 28000 troops compared to app.70000 Austrians then it emphasises how major a victory it was.

    So you will have quite a challenge to win with Prussia, but Prussia is a better organised army, better trained, better officers and disciplined infantry. Choose your strategy and terrain well and a win is possible.I have included five Orders of Battle, one full and four Corps battles. This will allow first timers to get used to the game.

    Please post if there are any problems. Feedback on how to improve the mod will also be appreciated.Hopefully the next mod will be the Battle of Hastenbeck which is between the French and Hanoverian armies

    Unzip the download and place into the mods folder

    Credit goes to Alessillo for the use of his flags and KLA for the use of his sprites.

    Enjoy

  • I will only be able to test it (and provide some feedback) over the weekend! So far, I've only taken a small look. And boy! Great work! I can hardly imagine how much work it was to "shoot" all those sprites! Thumbs up!

    Do you plan to add some UI-stuff and unit/leader pictures? At least the highest tier of leaders shouldn't be a problem picture-wise. Moreover, I could standardise all the terms in the OOB and come up with some minor corrections. Would you prefer to have the overall terminology (e.g. general-ranks) in german or english?

    I noticed that the Habsburg army does not feature any grenadiers? I need to read up whether I can find something about them in the battle of Leuthen. Even though grenaider-battalions were not institutionalized as in the Prussian armies, on the operational scale, in the Habsburg army, grenadiers were often formed up to build an elite detachement (for vanguards, etc. - often combined with other light/elite troops such as grenzer). It would be a shame not to have any bearskinned grenadiers, don't you think? (not even mentioning grenzer grenadiers with bearskin caps - yes, they were actually a thing!)

    Vivat Maria Theresia! :)

    PS: Some contemporary art (not including boring uniform works) to spark everyone's interest in the Third Silesian War:

  • Hi Wenzel

    Many features will improve as the Mod develops. Feel free in the meantime to work on the points you have mentioned. If your keen I have some portraits of officers which your welcome to use if you can do it. I didn't have the time.German and English terminology would be good. I think it may gave some players more immersion.

    The OOBs I have used from Project SYW doesn't list Austrian Grenadiers as converged battalions so the only ones would be in the musketeer battalions as companies. I chose not include them with/in the musketeer battalions mainly to safe on memory. There are other battles that definitely includes them and when it does I will include them. I do have the sprites when they are needed

    Your mod is probably great, but the link to it doesn't work. Are there any alternative links?

  • Hi Don and Chichetr

    Saddletank has already provided the link where you can find the screenshots, thanks Saddletank. The link for this mod is probably down at the moment as I tried opening it recently on my iPad to check. It. I was able to get into the site with a bit of manipulation but could not download unto my iPad. I have benn away from home for the last two weeks and without my computer. I get back 12th Dacember and will contact mediafire as this is not the first time it happened. Hopefully it will be corrected ASAP

  • Remus, I recommend Dropbox for hosting personal files.

    Alternatively ask LP and he may be able to put it on NSDs file server where the other GB mods are hosted.

  • Hi Saddletank

    I haven't had much success with Dropbox. It always seem to gooble up my files and I end up with no space left. In the meantime I have sent a PM to Little Powell and await to see the outcome.

    Thanks for your suggestion

  • Hi Remus

    I have been playing your mod but have to say it seems only part finished and there's a few problems. Would you like some feedback? I'm afraid its fairly critical. We can discuss by PM or e-mail if you'd prefer.

    I think with more work this could be a fantastic mod though.

  • I've like SYW games since I read Charles Grant's little book. I like this mod, and have had it for a while but, for some reason, just started to explore it. I'm sorry to see it hasn't been added to. What map would you recommend for the battle?
    Thanks

  • HI jlan5031

    Just to let you know that I am in the process of updating the Battle of Leuthen mod. There were some problems with it's initial release as a result of me having to go into hospital at the time with some uncertainty as to the final diagnosis, so I rushed it in the end. I have already fixed some of the problems and still working through the game to correct issues as I find them. I have every intention of working through more of the Seven Years War battles.I will be using packed sprites instead of the old format used in the Leuthen game so should make for a smoother game. Hopefully I can have it finished in the near future and will post the download ink when ready.

    In answer to your map question there are some really good maps in the released mod threads that don't have the Civil war fences probably at least about six of them.

  • Remus,
    Thanks for your prompt reply. I hope you're completely recovered from your hospital stay, and I'm eagerly awaiting your SYW updates.
