Re: Antwerp and first months of war as Central Powers

Agreed, all you need is a corps to mask Antwerp as you make your push south. It's really, really hard to take early, unless you don't plan on pushing into France. It requires a full army, and you'll take a LOT of casualties. I usually pull my super heavy artillery out of the armies and attach them t...

Re: Naval aircraft?

They fulfill their historical use as scouts for fleets. Fly them out a bit and let them return. You can, of course, use them for other purposes. How do you fly them out though? Whenever I try to move them over a sea region I get a message that at least one of my units is not allowed to enter the te...

Naval aircraft?

What are these things for? Germany starts with two, one in Danzig and one near Kiel. AH starts with one in Pola. I don't see a way to attach them to fleets, they can't fly out to shipping/blockade boxes, and don't appear to be able to fly over sea regions, so what are they for?

Ammunition not pushing to the front lines?

I've gone through all 27 pages of threads, and I still haven't been able to find a good answer to this, I'm hoping you guys can help me out. This is mainly a problem for me with ammunition, but it happens a bit with supply as well. Right now my game just rolled into 1915, I'm playing as CP. Easy sup...

Generals stats drop when creating corps?

I've noticed that when I select a general that was not in command of a pre-existing corps at the scenario start, and activate the 'Corps Command' button, he immediately loses 2 from his activation value, and his attack and defense numbers either lose two each as well, or they drop to zero. This pers...

Weeeeeeell, that would depend on what context you are using to call them that. The game actually has a family of sub-units named famElite, and Zouaves do not belong to it; they belong to famLine. I'm not sure if having the famElite status in and of itself actually has any direct affect in the game....

For what it's worth with this one, You click OK, it looks like the turn keeps progressing, then it pops up 5 or six more times and the game closes.

Yes, that seems to have done it. I think I was using the recommended settings in the game. That was quite irritating. Thanks!

Athena and W. VA/W. Pennsylvania

Athena seems to have an unhealthy obsession with western Pennsylvania and NW West Virginia. In the July '61 campaign, she seems to almost immediately send Joe Johnston's army up towards Pittsburgh, almost every game. It's no big deal to defend - the supply out there for the CSA is horrible. However,...

Recruiting Officer attribute

Sorry if this one has been asked before (there are a lot of threads!), but what exactly does the Recruiting Officer attribute do, and what do I need to take advantage of it? Right now I've got John McClernand in the Chicago region. Does he actually need to be inside the structure, or is the region O...

I was getting that in the official 1.4 patch, but it seems to have been fixed in the 1.5 RC patches (it works like it should in RC1 and RC3 for me, anyway).

I currently have nothing in Bowling Green, as the CSA controls it. I don't have any of the above in Louisville, are they required for a depot?

Why can't I build a depot?

The requirements for building supply depots seem rather hazy, and aren't really laid out in the manual. At the moment, in Louisville, KY, I've got 100% loyalty, 100% military control, an active infantry unit (no leader), but I'm unable to build a depot. As the nearest depots are Vincennes and Cincin...

I actually get this error almost every time I move to the next turn, just with a different number in the parentheses.

A reload of the save then re-executing the turn seems to get rid of it.

Wellllll not really. The bronze guns are smooth bores such as 6 and 12lb. while the steely looking guns are rifled. IIRC 12lb-ers have a larger caliber than 10lb-er Parriots. This appears to be correct to me - the 6 and 12lb. guns are smoothbores, but the 10lb. are rifled - smaller caliber, but mor...
