Re: Newbie questions

I think I get it now. I found some cities on the edges of the map painted my enemy's colour due to their loyalties, but not actually at war with me. I played merchants there, followed by trade posts and I'm seeing an income from it detailed in my reports.

Newbie questions

I'm a late comer to AJE, though I do own other Ageod titles. I'll probably have a few questions to ask in the coming days/weeks. But to start with I am unsure about how some of the regional decisions work. Q. Merchants. This decision is only valid when played on a province you don't own - only enemy...

Re: Steam Release?

Definitely going to pick up this game.

Will wait to see if it appears on Steam.

I used to be anti-Steam, but once I gave in it's just so much easier to have all the games I purchase in one place.

A corrupted file might make a lot of sense actually.

It is only in my current game that I am experiencing crashes. I want to carry on (albeit hav...

Struggling onward through multiple crashes

Well its 1636 and the glorious Imperial army is being halted not by the enemy, not by the weather, but by the increasing frequency of game crashes - six crashes in less than twenty game turns. :( Also, apart from the crashes/freezes I have a number of occasions when my screen goes black for a few se...

Events sending troops to other theatres

If there should be another future patch could the devs please consider this issue: Playing as Imperial side I had an army sent by event to Poland.

I have purchased TYW two days ago.

I am assuming that there is a lack of AARs for two main reasons: 1.

Yes please.

Also, what will planes be most useful for? Their combat prowess is really not going to make any impression upon an infantry corps is it? Perhaps they're maybe more a reconaisance tool?

The medal shown in the bottom left corner of every unit icon - does that represent an experienced unit? It brings up questions: How will experience be handled in VGN?

If the units formed into a division are worth less than 4 CP (command points) penalty will be higher with the division : a division will count for 4 CP whatever you put inside it and a lone leader provides 2 CP. When you put the divison into the corps, the corps commander will provide enough CP to ...

5. Divisions - lots of brigades, low CP (command points) penalty. A division uses 4 CPs no matter how many units are inside. So you cut down on the penalty for large forces. So the leader of an individual stack might not necessarily benefit by forming his stack into a division, but if I then pop th...
