To concur with Leibstandarte, the interface is using the latest developments used in CW2 and EAW, but all the textures have an historic feeling, nothing modern or generic.

I like his style, and I like looking at the games. Though I think CW was Pangi.

Can we expect some screenshots soon?

ACW was our original artist, Sandra.... the new CW2 was Gilles (and Massi for the soldiers and leaders).

i Wonder how the TYW map reffers to the NGC map and to the Bigger European Map Project.
Maybe you guys are close to create universal basic map for europe for 1600-1800 timeline - and it might be basis for many future games and DLC?

Ah, I remember Sandra. She did good work for BOA. I hope that she is doing well.
Pangi did great work for PoN.

Suspect that the AGE 2 engine will be ideal for the Thirty-Year's War and this will be a release-day purchase for certain.

The scope is limited at the moment Halberdier but he game is ready to grow not only in space but also in time.
So the game covers what was the german conflict. This of course includes Danish, French, Spanish and Swedish.

Yes, pictures please. I'm happy for TYW fans. But the only Ageod game (I have them all) I enjoyed that I didn't have solid background knowledge on was Revolution Under Siege. What a labor of love. Espana and Rise of Prussia Gold didn't do it for me at all, which is an entirely subjective opinion, of course.

Every Ageod release is worth celebrating though, so best wishes. I am enjoying To End All Wars and expansion tremendously.

Really hoped the TYW would become an ageod game, thank you leibstandarte ! Loved your work on Espana 36.

Looking forward to defend my good old Alsace region from these thieving French hands ! :D

hello Leibstandarte,
- what will be the supply system used in this game ? A simple one with units getting supply from the region they occupy (as in Alea jacta Est) or a more elaborate one with chain of depots (as in España 36) ?
- will you use the battle planer ?

I have other questions
-will the armies be a single stack commanded by a 3-stars leader (as in Alea jacta Est) or will you use a system similar to the system used in ACW2 with 3/4 corps corresponding to the left wing / center / right wing / reserve marching/fighting together ?
- will you use the last tools created for the AI ?
- could you help the AI to use wisely the RGD cards (in ACW or in ROP, the AI handles well these cards and it's very pleasant) ?
- the España 36 manual was quite well written , could you put a maximum of details in this manual (to cover the specificities of the period ) ?

- Supply system as in AJE
- Battle planner is present.
- Armies like in AJE.
- We are using AI Agents if you mean that.
- RGD are designed as usual but its the engine who manages them, and in TYW we have the latest .exe version.
- Thanks, i will do my best to make a good manual.

so no MTSG?
why dont you use EAW system in which all 2 star stakcs perform MTSG - it makes the game so much deeper....

This hobby of mine (interest in historical conflicts and wargames) is going to get expensive this year. Thirty Years War, Napoleon Great Campaign and if I'm not careful I'll run out of time too trying to enjoy them all! HA ! ;) keep up the good work.

RebelYell the Swedish army was a mixed protestant force under Gustavus Adolphus. You can find German, Swedish, Finns, Latvian and Scots regiments in his army.
The regiments and brigades was often named by colours, yellow (German/two swedish companies Life Guard ), Blue (German), Green (Scots), White (Pommern), Red, Black, Orange. There was two Swedish brigades with only Swedish and Finland regiments.

I found this link for the battle of Battle of Breitenfeld (1631). I will check it out.

Yes I know, I was interested in the correct dates and regiments appearing in the game.

The king led personally the Finnish cavalry in Breitenfeld, they took the Catholic artillery and turned the battle.
