Yeah. I checked that. All the links are no longer valid. If someone knows where they went, I will be sure to take a look.

Re: A typical turn "checklist"

Well, I wimped out on doing a full Campaign. Not ready just yet. I went back to West Scenario, as suggested by most of you on this forum. I've turned on Historical Attrition, using normal (NOT easy) supply, manual replacements, AI activation +1, Low Detect bonus, allow AI more time, etc. I did lower...

Re: My first AEGOD Game and game play settings.

Hey guys. Thank you for all your replies and advice! I have been involved in Operation Barbarossa and forgot about Operation "Save Richmond". I'm about to go for it and start a Full-fledged Civil War Campaign. A couple settings I'm still on the fence about before going "all in": ...

Easy supply/traffic penalty

I'm playing the 1862 W scenario. Do you recommend Easy Supply and TP off
to start?

Edit: I'm starting to figure this game out, little by little. Each turn is a strategy game within itself. I might screw this whole scenario up but I'm learning the game as i go along. Very cool!

Re: My first AEGOD Game and game play settings.

Thank you @armchairgeneneral! Great tips and i will combine your advice with the others I've received. I've been using the cycle units function quite a bit because it gives me a better idea of who's available to move for each turn. I come from a world of simpler, hex tbs/tactical games where all you...

Re: My first AEGOD Game and game play settings.

" So BOA2 #1 recommendation. It has some great grand campaign games, but numerous small scenarios which allow you to explore the game without too much complication. Pike and Shot is a nice game if you prefer tactical play. I I think I will just stick with CWII as my "complex strategy game...

Re: My first AEGOD Game and game play settings.

I couldn't have asked for a better reply. Thanks for taking that much time to break everything down for me. I appreciate it! Very helpful explanations. Battle Planner - On - This is purely optional, but it can make battles a bit more fun. I think it can also increase the randomness a bit (if one bat...

I just made my 1st AEGOD purchase last week, getting ACW2. LOVE IT so far. I'm finishing up the basic tutorials and have just been studying the map, my units, watched a few "let's learn ACW2 videos, etc. I'm now about ready to jump into my 1st real Scenario/Campaign game. I know this is not goi...
