Re: Interested in a Civil War II Gold version?

I'm poor as hell but I'd come up with the money for a gold edition. If a few tweaks
could be included that would fix a few problems. I hope it happens, especially if
a CW3 is a long way off.

Re: Battle Planner Tutorial or Documentation

I have fun playing with the various options. We have very little effect on the outcome of
a battle other than how we compose our forces, so I find it entertaining. I'd love for a CW3
to have an option to micromanage a battle closer, but that would take a LOT of coding work.

Re: Suicide of Bad Generals

I've lost Meade as commander of the AoP to a stupid attack on the fort across from Fisher, and I've lost Grant in '61, which means Sherman never recovers from his depression and leaves the army, ie without Grant he doesn't spawn. Sometimes life sucks. In both these case, the first against AI, the s...

Those garrison units, if they survive an attack, can be combined with a militia unit. I've done that frequently.

It's a strange glitch that needs to be addressed in a future patch or version. Not a terrible

Re: Civil War III

See? There is a LOT that can be worked on and improved. They don't have to call it CW3, a
new name would be more appropriate, especially with a new game engine. I'd like to see
most of those sorts of changes implemented, along with some more alternatives that involve
Mexico and perhaps even Cuba.

Re: Civil War III

I sure hope so. We'll see what the devs have to say about it. If I'm not mistaken the game engine
has been updated recently and that might help a whole lot. There are several features that would
be great if they could be added.

Re: Confederate Coastal Forts

The Union did try to use a landing party to take Fort Sumter at the Second Battle but Beauregard figured it would be tried and replaced many of the guns and crews with 320 infantry. They repelled the attempt with the loss of 8 killed, 19 wounded (105 captured) of the 400 sailors and marines who made...

Re: Indians

Yes, IIRC you mentioned you subverted Little Crow during the Great Sioux Uprising, which would make all Indian units enemy for as long as that event is active, which allows the unmodded event to work on all 'enemy' Indian units. The same goes for CSA owned Indian Units. That's exactly what ought no...

Re: Indians

The only time I've seen the subvert card work is on Little Crow and his force, along with
the Lipans out West. Crow is one hell of a great commander for the Union. I have never
seen the subvert card work for the CSA. :(
