As we celebrate the long-awaited release of the Battle Terrain System, I sat at my PC and pondered about the Battle of Agincourt, where a mighty army of mounted French knights charged at the English longbowmen, only to get bogged down in a muddy field and get cut to pieces.
We already know that, in-game, trees and river crossings make for first-class natural anti-cavalry defences, and I thought to myself: Why not take it a step further? Garnish portions of the overworld and battlefield maps with either marshland, fresh mud, thick vegetation or deep snow. Any unit - footmen and horsemen alike - seeking to traverse it are slowed to a crawling pace and dealt a morale penalty if they happen to come under attack then and there. Mounted units, on top of that, risk getting thrown and laming their horses if they rush into the difficult terrain too quickly.
I believe that such features would thoroughly improve the tactical aspect of Bannerlord's battles. After all, such places would make excellent spots to stop and break an enemy advance - or doom the player if he or she foolishly F3s towards the enemy. Certain portions of the overworld map (like woodlands and mountains) and seasons (like winter and spring) would offer excellent opportunities to either initiate or avoid open battle in a very organic manner.
A likely snag would probably be the pathfinding AI, which might be confused by the different terrains and cripple itself. Perhaps it is possible to programme an 'evade-or-slow-down-or-dismount' response?
What say you?
So i just got to his 4th phase but now whenever i deal damage to him his pink slime just heals him and i dobt know what i have to do to stop that frol happening so is there some special way to kill him or is my gear just too bad?
I can only afford one on the Steam sale. I vaguely remember playing Sim Ant when I was a kid and always hoped there would be a next gen game like that.
I can't decide between either of these because the reviews seem to balance out to "love it or hate it." I would prefer depth over breadth, mechanics over graphics, replayability over polish.
Can anyone who's played both recommend one over the other?

I have a heavily forested 85-acre tract of land in Taliaferro County, GA, 105 miles ESE of Atlanta. Ir is the least populous county in Georgis, at 1,600 residents. This property is in the middle of nowhere. It is 15 miles to a gas station. There is no cell service..
I was near the back line of the property a few weeks ago, just looking around, and I noticed something unusual about the undergrowth in a ditch. I started poking around and eventually dug out both these cars.
It was a massive pain to get them out. I should have just left them there.
Axcording to GPS, the cars were almost exactly 1 km from the road, just 15 feet from the back property line. There are no other roads. These things wete deep in the wiods. I managed to drag them out of the ditch with the winch on my ATV, but I had to cut down 9 trees to get deep enough to pull them to the road with my tractor. It took me 2 days.
Why and how these things were there is a mystery I have made no progress on. They had to be there for at least a couple of decades. There was nothing inside either car. Nothing at all,, not even a msnual. Both of them had the key in the ignition.
I wish I had thought to take pictures of the whole process, but I didn't have my phone.
I mean, he did reappear in the Phantom Planet episode, but I kinda doubt the artists really cared about continuity anymore at that point and perhaps just randomly picked some old enemy designs.
But yea, he wasn't sucked into the thermos bottle thing like usually happens to ghosts at the end of an episode.
I can't really imagine Danny killing ghosts but on the other hand, as I've also seen in other shows, when the enemies (ghosts) aren't human, it's more "allowed" to kill them perhaps.
I have an wooded area in the back corner of my yard. No grass, quite shady, I use the space to store a trailer and a couple of wood piles. I clean up all the small undergrowth and plant life that pops up every summer to keep it as clear as I can. I'm about to blow out the fallen leaves like I do every fall, but should I leave them until spring to prevent the small stuff from popping up? Does clearing out the leaves allow the soil to warm up in the spring, allowing more growth? Or would leaving the leaves in place actually provide decaying nutrients and promote growth? I'd like to keep it as clear as possible without using chemicals.
Googling this topic inevitably provides results for removing undergrowth. I guess not many people want to thicken the undergrowth, but that's exactly what I want to do. My dad's place has always been country, which he really appreciates. His proud sanctuary is his backyard in which no other indications of civilization can be seen.
However, recently the property owner behind him clear-cut a large swath of land with no intention of regrowing anything. Now, my dad can see light through the trees and even the next house over in places. He doesn't want to see that.
So is there anything that can be done to quickly thicken the woods around his house, so he at least can't see through them? There's some sections where the undergrowth is thick enough that it accomplishes that, but unfortunately, the thickness is spotty. This is in the southeast alongside tall pines with significant canopy cover.
I should also point out "quickly" is important. My dad is almost 80 and battling cancer, so as much as I don't like to think about it, he can't realistically wait for full trees to grow. I want him to have his sanctuary for his own mental health.
Thank you so much in advance.
I love the looks of it, and I glued it on using AP basing glue. It was flexible so I thought it would be durable. Two weeks later, it’s brittle to the point of disintegration upon touch. I did use spray varnish on it- chemical reaction?
