Re: Divisions & Corps?

The number of corps attached to an army is limited by the leader (think it is related to his strategic rating, not sure on the exact relationship) I'm not sure this is the case, and I don't remember AACW well enough to know if it was the case then. At least I haven't found where you can alter it, a...

Re: Just Curious - Any Way to Stop An All-East Union Strategy Featuring 3-star Grant?

@TeaTime, I do like the concept of decreasing the command radius, though I fear that it may be more detrimental to the CSA than the Union. The CSA has far fewer 3*'s to work with, I fear it may stretch them too thin. One of things I am also intending to look into is the idea of allowing 2 star gene...

Re: Just Curious - Any Way to Stop An All-East Union Strategy Featuring 3-star Grant?

I usually play Union but one of the things I modded was to reduce the command radius of generals to 1 region only irrespective of strategic rating. For example, historically Grant was not able to apply any influence over Rosecrans even when he was given full command in the west and in the east he wa...

Re: Promotions

This is from the old manual but I think it all still applies To promote a leader to a new rank, it is specifically needed that: - He is potentially promotable (the database must have an entry for his new grade). This is indicated by a 'Yes' in the 'Is Promotable' line, element detail window. - He ha...

Re: Where does it show number of troops?

The number of troops is a bit of an abstract since an element is measured based on number of hits. At the element level you can see the number of troops in the bottom left of the unit information panel. Select the unit in a stack and then click on an element in the unit box on the right to bring up ...

Yeh, from what I have been able to dig up there isn't a lot of clarity on how the replacements actually work with those options but it does look like option 2 is not working as it should. You should definitely not be filling missing elements without at least 1 chit allocated. It is acing like you ge...

Also, for what its worth, I know that some 'missing hits' amounts in the replacement chit screen are not totally accurate. Some elements in mixed brigades count as missing hits for the wrong element type. This is easily seen with the Stonewall brigade appearing in early May '61, the light infantry ...

From my observations

The stack cohesion is not always reflective of the individual element/unit/division cohesion and therefore the stack power is not always accurate.

As you mention, a reload will often reset the stack cohesion.

I tend to just put it down as a "fog of war" feature ;)
