Re: On the F2-Recruit screen - what does the big L mean?

Pocus, My warmest greetings! I am so happy that I have found time to play AGE games. I love the engine and what it models: supply, weather, campaigning season, fatigue ... I have finally invested enough time to be able to decode the battle reports. I do think FOGE is brilliant too. But still it is n...

Re: On the F2-Recruit screen - what does the big L mean?

Okay, here is what I think. The big green L means that you have reached the limit of the build capacity for the province. Like I have 4 naval units being built in Syracusea to complete over the next four turns in sequence. I had cash to yet build more, but that province would not show green. So, it ...

Re: On the F2-Recruit screen - what does the big L mean?

If I recall correctly that means the unit is arleady on the map ( L aid) but not fully finished yet. I will try to reproduce it tonight. Regards I have been looking for big L's. I am playing the Roman Civil War Caesar vs Pompeii (as Caesar). I have had plenty of units unlocked, but their stats stil...

Re: Locked units not released in a siege.

I know what you are talking about. And I think they will unlock only if they are end up in battle.

They are fairly weak forces and march in lead boots.

I find their main value is mustering in the log so that I know that I should go take a look see.

Re: Why remove soldier count?!

When I saw BOA, I objected to the abstraction of hits versus real world resources. It was the legacy of BG. People intuitively think of things they know. For the ancient world 50,000 was a big army. An army of 100,000 - 200,00 was one of the largest ever fielded. (like the Persians) Besides lower gl...

How to cancel a unit requested or RGM?

I believe other games in the same turn you can right click in the Production Ledger Page, but seemingly not in this game. Once selected, you are committed.

Re: Having trouble with Spartacus

I have a suspicion about this one as a major victory is very dependent on retreat logic. My guess is that this scenario wasn't regression tested. In the final round of AGE1 and AGE2 updates, Pocus made quite a few changes for retreat behavior. In general, what he did was to make the behavior more lo...

Having trouble with Spartacus

First, it seem unlike standard scenarios, holding the objective cities does not win. You must destroy the slaves. Spartacus' army is very hard to destroy. In this engine armies don't fight to the death, and they will ultimately retreat. Is it certain with v1.05 and ZOC/retreat options that in this s...

Thank you. I understand your points. I am, in fact, limited; as this is the "Seeing the Elephant" scenario. A good sandbox. Now, I can easily win 60:30 by just hunkering down and defending Washington. But foolish me, I want to FIGHT. I did a very different reorganization of my forces. I lo...

Yes, thanks. I will post some screenshots and zip of save game if possible. I was playing around with it quite a bit last night.

I have a vague gut sense of how things work in the AGE2 engine: A max number of rounds. Random dice rolls with preferential coefficients for different battle portions. But I don't know how it all hangs together in terms of a stacks composition of elements/terrain. In a sense, the fight it yourself g...
