Troop Type Summary Sheet

Post by greedo » Mon Feb 08, 2021 10:49 pm

I'm just getting up to speed on things, but to help me learn the game, I thought I'd make a troop type summary sheet.
I've found it helps me with several other games as I'm learning them.
It needs formatting, but is it worth posting here, or would that cause any kind of IP problems? Wanted to check :)

It just details out the Troop type name, movement, cf vs foot, mounted, shooting, if they pursue on beat, points costs etc..

It wouldn't cause any Intellectual Property concerns, no.

It would certainly be unofficial, of course. But whatever you want to do is fine. There are lots of people who have made up a variety of player's aids -- we are not responsible for their content (or errors, if any), but if you think something like that would be useful, by all means go for it. If what you make is good, other people may help you buff and improve it.

Short version: fan-made content is a good thing.

Greedo,

Was it you who created the DBA ones? If so great idea and I definitely use them alongside the QRS.
If it wasn't you then still a great idea for Triumph.

That sounds like a great idea! Please post it here if you think other players might benefit from it.

Thanks,

Here it is (attached). I can tweak it so if I made any mistakes or if anything is unclear. I've put DRAFT in the title so that new players aren't confused :)
Much appreciated, but alas I did not make the DBA summary sheets.
Although I did put together a summary for setting up the game, since it was always confusing to me.

This is inspired by the great Command & Colors sheet which has all the stats on one page.
I did also make index cards for my To The Strongest! armies since that's another one where sometimes the various things for each troop need to be gathered together.

I tried to separate out (much like the Triumph QRS) the troops into Close and Open Order units, and Mounted vs Foot.
Perhaps I should put headings. Feedback is always welcome!

Am trying to see if I can fit in the shattered stats (giving and receiving) into each line but there’s quite a few so would have to use 2 letter acronyms.. will share when I’ve got a draft together.

Well, thank you for the effort, it will be very helpful on the TTS mod development for sure, glad this is the first thing I read here.

Thank you!

Managed to squeeze in the Shattered By, as well as Rear Support. Didn't bother with exceptions or what happens when doubled since there is the outcomes summary, but at least some of the info is here.
Feedback welcome :)

Thanks, it looks good! I am sure players will find it helpful. We have had other playing-aids created in the past and posted on the forum (scoring sheets for example), but the real question is how do players find them easily?

Would Washington Grand Company be willing to designate a section to "sanctioned" player aids and community uploads?
Back in the day, I found the Fanaticus site (separate from the forum) to be a FANTASTIC place for what the community had been putting together.

These days, youtube how-to videos are incredibly helpful, and these days the hard part is finding a site that is free/cheap to host that can be built to hold all the photos/pdfs.
