Speed of quadriga limited to slowest horse?

Post by Temple »

From the manual:
Horse bar lenght[sic] is a measure of current speed.
OK, this seems simple enough, longer bar, faster horse. However, it seems to me that the max speed of the quadriga is limited to the slowest horse. Have other folks found this to be true?

Thanks for reporting the typo, I have to correct this in the ingame manual, it should say:

"The sum of horse bar's lengths is a measure of current speed".

All four bars lengths (less if horses are killed) are summed up to calculate current maximum speed

One more little thing, according to my English teacher wife, the statement should read:

"The sum of the length of the horses' bars is a measure of the current speed."

I'm a bit iffy on it myself, but she does have the degree, so I'll defer to her judgement [:)]
