Is ammo being used by the besieger?

Fri May 18, 2012 2:32 pm

Wondering if ammo is being used by a besieger each turn passes. I believe it should as if it was a real battle (or some big fraction of it). Can't find anywhere confirmation about it though...

AFAIK, Ammo is used only in battles, not by a besieger or the besieged.

Yes, IIRC, no consumption of ammo while normal sieging...the occasional shooting or shots are considered as not using ammos...but if you assault, then there is a direct battle in which ammo will be consumed like in every other battle (intense exchange of fire) :)

Would you consider adding this as an abstraction of ammo used by the siege mortars, artillery, and occasional skirmishes? Perhaps not 50% as per usual battle, but 20-25%. This will put some more pressure on the besieger to organize better. Actually, I propose this change for every AGEOD title. ;)

I would not be against, in light of the fact that I believe too few ammos are generally used overall in most AGE games... We need to confer between us to see if this is a sound move though.

Sounds like a good idea, for when you read contemporary reports or diaries, it's very clear that sieging was a very ammo-consumming buisinees. After all, one had to maintain a continuous fire on the enemy batteries to silence them and let the pioneers work in relative quiet.

Yes Sir definitely, and not limited to siege but also for battles.
