War simulations

Postby pesgores » Sat Mar 21, 2009 12:16 pm

Not, I'm not talking about a game, but a gadget that simulates battles.

Like, you pick the era, the number of units, type of units, scenario, tactics and...you just let it happen. The computer does the whole simulation.

From 1 on 1 shootouts to thousands and thousands of troops facing of in a huge plain field.

Tell me this exists, please. I know it does. I need it.

in some games you can set two factions against eachother (both computers) and just let it happen but idk about the kind of thing your talking about

Yes, that's an example, but I'm sure there is something a bit more detailed.

in war-stratagy games with map editors you can normally make impossible to reach places where you can put your starting point and just let the computer armys fight it out

no, i think that sins of a solar empire takes the cake for most units, i mean you can have hundreds even thousands of ships per side! not to mention the millions of beings that pilot them

they don't program the individual people inside the ships. in cossacks 2 you may have 8000 units PER SIDE with up to 6 players (im pretty shure it's 6)

GET THE DEMO FOR ORIGINAL COSSACKS!
