Thanks Don,

The explanation explains the odd class usage precisely.
Makes sense now.
I think it was a fair query.
But I will try to remember to check out the workability in-game for future also.

Thats precisely why I had stated the above when originally questioning the unit class.

Regards,

**I** pointed it out.....it's been like that since **I** set it up that way about 4 years ago. It was an experimental formation in a minor OOB and nobody commented on it in all that time.Once in a blue moon bicycle troops suddenly become the issue du jour and I personally don't like the way they have been handled as infantry but for years at a stretch there is no mention of them then suddenly they are an issue and this experiment was a test to see who might notice and if they did what the reaction would be

I would like to point out that cyclists are not necessarily higher than walking infantry as they are sitting and there legs are bent to the pedal. There might be 4 inches in it whereas for cavalry the difference is 4 foot. I think because of this it would be possible to make the bicycle carrying class size 1. After all at size 1 they are already more visible than size 1 infantry as moving further/faster automatically makes them more visible, same as making them size 2.

A man + bike is much longer than a man on foot, and cannot use terrain to sneak behind as does a man on foot. Bicyclists are far more noticeable than walkers.

.....and that has been, is and will continue to be our opinion on the matter and why this thread is now closed.

But the IMPORTANT thing to remember and that seems to be forgotten is that sizes in SP are 0 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 etc etc

NOT 1.2 or 1.5

2 is a bigger target than 1 and 3 is bigger than 2 and men on bicycles were set to 2 because they ARE easier targets than men on foot and in giving them a speed of 9 it was decided a LONG time ago.......that if we didn't give the size penalty players would abuse the use of bicycle troops so they move faster but are bigger targets. At some point I *MAY* change all bike troops to the way they are set up in the Slovak OOB but it's low priority but anyone who feels it IS a priority to them has MOBHack to make whatever change makes you happy
