Hi Especially right Stronghold Extreme is in production they would have 10,000 units in one battle scene. I was wondering do they paged/batch this? They are probably not animated sprite billboards as you can look at them at all angles? Or perhaps instancing? Seems all their units have their own animation and own AI, each unit are just unique. Also, how about their walls? It seems their walls they just do simple break and replace. When a catapult stone or a bad wall have been damaged, they replace it with another wall, and another wall until a wall that is only 1 feet high is all that is remain? Thanks for your ideas.

I've not seen the game, but you can regenerate billboards when the viewing angle changes. Or pregenerate a load of angles beforehand.
