Injun, if you are still having problems with installation of the mod, drop me a Private Message with your email address. Actually, anyone having problems with installation of the mod, drop me a PM with your email address. We can work through installation step by step to ensure a proper installation.

Jag Thanks so much for all of your hard work. That's first and foremost. But I've been having this problem to a greater or lesser degree since taking the steps to install the mod: game loads, but upon launch of the scenario I'm getting errors aplenty. This is the 3rd time I've uninstalled and reins...

executable file

Injun, The PBEM mod will work with 1.10d. Download the patch but only use the executable file from the patch. The executable file is the file you use to start the game. So if you already have the PBEM mod installed, just overwrite the old executable file with the 1.10d executable file. If you don't ...

There is definitely a problem with ships and blockades which appears related to FOW. Rivers, without troops adjacent, have a spotting capability of 1/0.

Here's a copy of a version of the new "Cohesion&Attrition.opt" file that might be more suitable for PBEM play... The version that comes out with the latest patches was altered somewhat to make it more suitable for AI play.

Just finished a PBEM game. If anyone is interested in playing a PBEM Mod game, drop me a private message. I can do a turn a day. I will play either side. We would be using the latest version including the new attrition and models. Game would be semi-test of new features.

Given that Forrest was able to overpower and capture two Union gunboats at Johnsonville, I would vote for at least two, preferably more (the current 4?)--if we are talking about total, automatic blockage. I assume Forrest's artillery disabled the gunboats. We already have artillery vs ship combat t...

Blocking was fixed in 1.10a :) I changed the elements required for blockade to 1 in the blockades&bombardment file. When I tested, it didn't work. I am short on time but will try to test again tomorrow. I am using 1.10a. Has anyone else tested the ship interdiction of troops with 1.10a?

I love optional rules, and giving as much control as possible to the player(s). The more optional rules the better. And Pocus read your mind! You can mod the number of elements required to blockade river sections in the Bombard&Blockade File located in the Settings Folder of 1.10a. Here is the pert...

In my mod, I gradually increased the number of available divisions for both sides. Finally, I gave up and simply set a limit of 100 for both sides. Make as many divisions as available manpower and commanders will support. IMO, limiting number of divisions limits the power of both sides. Troops outsi...

So any idea when the patch will be split into a graphics and non-graphics download? If it is technically too difficult to do, just let us know.

11 hour downloads is simple not practical with a dialup connection.

Maybe I'm dense, but I interpreted this as 'hits', not the 'probability of a hit'. :confused: Units can only suffer losses as hits. So a minimum loss for a typical regiment would be a single hit of 50 men. I don't believe you can get partial hits. So I am assuming the numbers are percentage chances...

The Attrition due to movement is checked daily. The additional attrition for the game rule 'Historical Attrition' is checked per turn. The decimal fractions are rounded up or down with the correct probability. It is odd that "Historical Attrition" is checked per turn rather than daily. A player cou...

So if hits are calculated daily, then in the last example using .052 health points, the total percentage chance of suffering a hit in clear terrain and harsh weather over 15 days would be: 1-(.948)15th power= 55% So in a regiment of 1000 men with 20 hits at 50 men per hit, then a total 55% chance ov...

'Health Points' and 'Hits' are only different words for the same thing. :cwboy: The parameters 'MenPerHit', 'GunsPerHit' and 'HorsesPerHit' are the conversation factors for Hits into the number of men. Additionally a slight random fluctuation is added. The game itself uses only the 'Hits' for it's ...
