Re: Union landing on Virginia (York) Peninsula

I was just curious because I often see the Union AI land infantry brigades and/or cavalry/militia regiments somewhere (Usually in the proximity of New Orleans, Galveston or Norfolk), which is honestly of little more than nuisance value, but I rarely see them land in force and then capitalise upon sa...

Union landing on Virginia (York) Peninsula

Simply put, is there anything the Confederate player can do to trigger a substantial Union landing on the Virginia (York) peninsula?

@Bamilus Have you heard anything of a Civil War 3 in the making from any of the powers that be? I stand to be corrected here, but I'm sure I saw one of the top dogs say, maybe 12 months or more ago, that there was going to be a major announcement regarding this game coming soon. I'm wondering whethe...

Re: Civil War 3 suggestion that I like so much I'm posting it again ;)

A little bit of research reveals that around 90 men were made brigadier general or better in the Confederate army in 1861 alone. I'm truly hoping that one day all of these generals find their way into the game, including those who were commissioned a brigadier general in '62, '63, '64 and '65. On a ...

Re: Civil War 3 suggestion that I like so much I'm posting it again ;)

The lower amount of days per turn, the more likely it is that a unit will be stuck in a move from region to region over multiple turns. Halving the current time, 2 weeks, already makes it twice as likely. If you thought it was frustrating to haul siege guns thru the swamp to Island 10 before... I m...

Why the fascination with 7 day turns? Wouldn't 5 day turns be even better and keep everything within a 30 day per month time frame?

I certainly don't think that "any old general" should be able to be given command of an army. I believe that the requisite rank and/or seniority would be necessary.

I've always said that all generals should be promotable to any level but with increasing amounts of seniority points required to achieve promotion from brigadier general to major general to lieutenant general to general.

Also, 5 day turns....

Re: Civil War 3 suggestion that I like so much I'm posting it again ;)

It's true that a lot of the generic Brigades in the current game are not crowd pleasers. However, any Brigade commanded by a General cannot be added to a Division as such. So General BloodnThunder would need to be stripped from the unit that bears his name, unless you changed this. Then why not cha...

Just a suggestion (sing its praises, slap it down or studiously ignore it at your leisure); allow the player to recruit by regiment rather than brigade.

Probably not for a few more years. It will have to appear economically viable for AGEOD.

Re: Command Ratings

Civil War commanders were bad at their job. I think the only one who grasped a bit of modern war was Grant, who won the war. The same can be seen in the Franco-Prussian war in which the French seemed amateurish and the Prussians won only by their aggressive strategy and artillery as they had people...

Every general should be promotable. Absolutely. Perhaps the parameters of promotion should be different for certain generals but they should all be promotable nonetheless. It is, after all, just a game ;)
