One thing I would dearly like, is, to be able to equip units with equipment (horses/guns/tools) from wagon trains in the same spot or ships they are on. Especially when I'm building a long road into a remote area, it's a real drag to have to walk to the nearest city, retool my hardy Pioneer, and send him out again.

Just an idea.

  • Nice. Would give new life to wagons.

    Thats a good idea and would make sense. I mean why shouldn't a soldier be able to take the guns from the cargo?
    It's not possible in the original game, but could be an interesting mod.

    Yeah, ok. As an optional feature.

    One possible way to do it, with extra possibilities and reusing some existing mechanics: set up a camp, then move stuff around much like in a town [ideas-for-freecol:#150].
