This game is what I wanted Field of Glory (which is still a good game) to be.

The unit graphics in particular give the mass effect that makes it look like a significant battle is taking place - every FoG game feels a bit like a skirmish because of the big sprites.

Are there any plans to use the engine to rework FoG ancients?

I agree, applying the Pike & shot engine to FoG would greatly improve it.

I agree, my first thought when I saw P&S was is it possible to mod for ancient units.

I'm passing on this game because I don't like this era, but I'd definitely buy an ancients game with this engine.

But that game would not be FoG, which is based on a particular ruleset (but that only a positive for me).

I'm in... regardless

Ancients, Medieval, Nappy or dare I even mention 'Fantasy' (that would probably need a story board similar to BA 2 but it could be the best made to date.) IMHO

I would much rather go forward towards 18th centuary and watch the musket evolve into napoleonics, then sure the FOG games can be redone using this engine
I want to see the new instead of having things redone, am sure this engine was not designed to enhance old games ,though within time i see no reason why not.

I have most FOG games myself and, no doubt this new engine will improve them all, but not yet.

I would much rather go "backwards" towards the ancients of ROME and watch swords and spears and Spartans and scythes of druids and naked fantical (females) hehe evolve in to The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. FOG games can be redone and SHOULD be redone using this engine. I want to see the OLD instead of the boring new age of muskets and rifles and boring military tactics that aren't as much fun as the old. I am SURE this engine WAS designed to enchance old games and soon.

I have most FOG games myself and, no doubt this new engine will improve them all and SOON don't wait.

the FOG games cannot be "redone" with this engine because the FOG games are based on a particular tabletop ruleset. Therefore any ancient warfare game based on this engine would not be "redoing" or "improving" or "enhancing" the FOG games, it would be a totally different game.

Personally I have no interest in the musket period and am hoping for a quick expansion into ancient warfare with this engine.

Going with the ancient and medieval on this one! Love those periods and this game system is just the ticket!

Yeah. P&S is a derivative of FOG: Renaissance but it is not called FOG because they changed some stuff to suit the engine. The other FOG game is called FOG because the engine was built from ground up to cater to FOG rules.

I will buy any historical era using this engine, so its a win-win for me. I really cannot believe how much fun this game has made the Pike and Shot era. Looking forward to all future games.

It appears that the whole Battle Academy series/engine (BA1, BA2, P&S and Hell) will be discontinued so I wouldn't get your hopes up

I believe it is only BA that has been discontinued, and only by Matrix staff. They could farm out future development to a third party should they choose, and should a third party be interested. This is exactly what has happened with Pike and Shot, so the future of this game will not/should not be impacted IMO.

Did you know that Pike & Shot Gold is being developed? And it will have a strategic map, logistics, persistent units, etc...

Hi, I reverse the question.

Any idea about upgrading Pike & Shot with the new Fields of Glory II graphic engine?
It would be awesome.

Any news about Pike & Shot Gold?

Thanks
