My question is do i necessarily want to do this. For example, i have a force with some artillery dug in at New Orleans. If a big fleet pass...

Kentucky Card Pool

Its February 1863 in my current game and i have used most the Force producing cards in Kentucky. I noticed that in 1861 i had a certain number of cards to use to raise units in Missouri. I used quite a bit and noticed in 1862 that more were available. However i see no more units (that i didn't have ...

Re: My opponent is pissed (and i dont blame him)

Thanks Gray, i will have to start looking into these battle log reports.

Re: National moral loss when conquering structures

I agree that its a bit overkill. I think the best fix for this would be a simple one. I don't think they should necessarily change the rules about a militia unit that surrenders or is destroyed to be subject to NM change. The change that should be implemented is that there shouldn't be any "Per...

Wish I would have known this earlier as Corps commanders are in short supply for the CSA. I had a fleet sitting in a harbor and had two admirals in one stack. I was looking at their stats and what buffs they bring to a fleet. I detach Buchanan out of the harbor and onto land and come to find out.......

Re: Rail lines

So, if I can scrape together 5 single CSA regiments capable of destroying/repairing railroads, I could send them to some obscure part of Florida where they would be safe and supplied. Then, they could each destroy the railroad (for 1.6 WS) in their district and rebuild it (for 1 WS) next turn. Each...

Re: Rail lines

At 2 rail lines per turn, it would take at least 25 turns to scavenge the 50 tracks. Or one might do 10 per turn for 5 turns. With war bonds issued, one IW would be producing the first turn thereafter, 2 the second turn and all 3 by the third (total of 48 WS added thus far). Two turns later you hav...

Re: Rail lines

Supplies always have the possibility to move through any non-blocked region. Of course, if you've damaged a rail line in the region it will be much more difficult to move supplies through that region. It will also prevent you from using the rail line to move troops quickly, so I'd advise being very...

I use them at Richmond and any center of trade and industry, like New Orleans or Charleston.


Grey Fox mentioned it produces 50% more supply. Does it produce 50% more money as well? I ask because you say center of "TRADE" and industry.

Yes definitely worth doing in regions that become rich. Two effects that I know of are that a Rich region produces 50% more supply and units in a Rich region are less subject to epidemics. So Richmond and D.C. would benefit, since large garrisons are present and the supplies would help. When you sa...
