The national modifiers (beyond what you start with) can be purchased using engagement points on the degrees (F4) and Military Reforms (F3) pages. The enemy nation might offer your territories, but, generally the warscore has to be strongly in your favor. Certain events (beyond your control) sometime...

Cavalry Corps

I was just thinking about a reserve cavalry corps...the whole concept is speed, much like Murat's corps...you want everything light...like horse artillery, a cavalry supply train...but what about the HQ itself, looking at the elements in that, they are slow.... So, I was thinking to just remove the ...

Thanks...

I had thought it would be nice to be able to see all the actual location names (not just the towns/forts), but you have to zoom in pretty tight, the size of area covered is relatively small..it would take a bucket load of shots. ;-(

Anyone know where I can find a full scale map (with location names)?

And yes, I mean outside the actual game itself.

Tactical options

I was just wondering, are there any particular tactical options that seem to work better than others, under different circumstances. Example, if you have roughly even forces, but you have more cav, does it make sense to try a flanking maneuver? Some obvious ones, more artillery, use massed batteries...

The suggestion has been made that the two player DLC be Multiplayer only. This is absolutely unacceptable to me. Many of us only play single player, and we should not be abandoned. I cannot believe that AGEOD would abandon us on this game, and on the coming DLC. Waiting for a further patch for sing...

And when chosen as France, no "trained sharpshooter" units, IE rifles or some such, become available. Of course, it might be something that is available much later. For me, it's was offered in 1805, I took it, and nothing happened.

Thoughts?

We were discussing the specific military reform "Trained Sharpshooters". It doesn't seem to work for the french, unless it's something that activates units later(much later) in the game.

Personally, I don't think it works with the french...more oriented towards the british and maybe the Prussians.

To create a division or not.

Sometimes it seems to me, it's better for a group of individual brigades + a leader to stay as separate brigades, because certain leaders when given "divisional" command, their stats become terrible. Example; Broussier (5-3-2) plus 2 separate brigades =166 combat power. The downside is it costs 4 CP...

What structures are in the city are to the greatest extent consequential to building units. To know where you can build a unit, go into the unit pool with <F11>, select a unit, and note which regions on the map are highlighted (actually, all others will be darkened [low-lighted?] :neener: ). That's...

All the work that seems to be going on, appears to apply to the beta project (or whatever it's called) and I'm wondering when some of these patches that improve the game and fixes bugs (and are stable), when will these be made "official" so that us steam players benefit also?

At the most basic level, the measures needed to find the enemy and make sure once you find them, you can keep track of them, would be easy. It boils down to detection and hide levels.

Momentum of a campaign.

I'm a strong believer in keeping up the momentum in a campaign, especially following up a big battle. In many cases, many leaders on the following turn, shift to a defensive posture (usually meaning inactive). So, what I do is grab the next best leader(s) that's active, form up adhoc units, usually ...
