I've read pretty extensively on the Civil War and I don't remember any single example of any attack made by either side from the regions we are discussing. Namely the region in between the norther border of Morgantown - Lewisburg - Prestonburg - Lexington and the south border of New Market - Covingt...

The "Trimble's Brigade" naming mechanism is just flavor. The only actual generals you get in game are separate units that have a picture and can be moved around. These guys are considered to be division generals or above. While each of those guys can merge with any single unit, they can also form di...

Can I ask how you folks have managed to turn on the option to show the number of elements on the upper left hand side of a unit? Mine don't do that and I can't find anywhere how to do it. Thanks.

Does this help explain why there are two artillery versions for replacements? Does anyone have an explanation for the two types of artillery replacements?

Near as I can tell, during a battle there are no rolls which affect a general's performance for the entire day. The activation roll is the closest there is. The drunkard ability is similar, though, in that it makes the activation roll even more important and can give a general a very off day. I thi...

There is a modifier called "National Resilience" or somesuch in the gamedata/factions folder that controls the number of rolls you get. That file has has some other neat stuff in it.

I had no idea each faction had 7 die rolls per turn to regain NM. (I'm assuming the Union receives the same chance.) From that perspective trading 1 NM for 8 WSU, especially in the early game, doesn't seem like such a risk. The Law of Averages should negate that 1 NM loss a least once in awhile. US...

When Johnston was killed, his army was not leaderless until Jeff Davis sent a replacement. Someone immediately took charge. That person would be the "second in command". Every unit has one.

I noticed the RGD for blockade runners, but trading 1 NM for a measly 8 WSU seemed a rip off. I suppose I would feel more comfortable if I had 140 NM sitting in the "bank", but it still seems a steep price to pay for the amount of WSU the CSA receives. Is the CSA that desperate? I always play from ...

I know you advocate crushing the Union in the East with the "Best of Best" as soon as the CSA is able. This is my intent, but it seems I'll need some WSU to build up that battle-winning, production and NM-boosting force; however, I can't see building a war-winning force on only 63 WSU per turn. Tho...

Leader Promotions - Specifically the Dearth of CSA 2-Star Generals

So, I've started to discover that the CSA is absolutely strangled by the lack of 2-star generals. Many of my promotable guys (1 star but have a 2 star model) are simply not promoting. I'm not quite sure why since most of my forces see quite a bit of combat. First question, what specifically effects ...

I also think that swapping Corps commanders based on their activation status is gamey. But, whatever, its a game, people can play however they want.
