Re: Contraband

I'm thinking it was more of a historical "flavour" unit. They played part of a role
in the war so perhaps the next iteration can fine toon it.

Re: Civil War III

Will there be a CW3 though? And if so, when? Probably not for a few more years. It will have to appear economically viable for AGEOD. Does it not currently appear to be so? Not with all the other projects they have going. Keep in mind that these types of games are a niche market. They aren't making...

Re: Battle Planner

I like using it. You can always go with what the AI recommends if you feel stuck, but
it makes battles feel a little less uncontrollable.

Re: Battle system: FOG2 or AGEod?

Will you need to own FOG2 in order to enjoy that battle feature, or will it be
included as a part of Empires? Probably a stupid question, but I wasn't sure.
I was imagining FOG:Empires as an adjunct to an established game.

Re: The Civil war From the Southern Viewpoint

I'm a Southerner - born and raised in Tennessee. I believe I would have been one
of the 42,000+ who fought for the Union. I proudly served in the USAF and even
got disabled during my service. I tend to look upon my fellow Southerners who
support the Lost Cause fantasy as near treasonous.

Remember that commanders ratings can increase in value the more you use them.

Re: Coweta, GA no railroad

A mistake made when creating the map. The line should have gone just North.
Bartow and Clark regions are connected by rail though so it shouldn't cause any
problem. During beta testing we were told that the map was pretty much set in
stone and it would take too much coding to correct it.
