Re: Poll. New engine first game.

Firm vote for Civil War.

I have played almost all of AGEOD's games, and this is still the most compelling.

It would be great to see a big step forward in the AI.

Would immediately back on Kickstarter.

Good Luck!

Top of screen is cut off

Hi, I am very excited to be playing Napoleon. :) Unfortunately, I am missing the top edge of the screen, and can't seem to find a way to access it. Some buttons are very far up along the top edge, and I can't access them. Also, certain instructions must be up there as well, since I am only able to r...

Negative :(

I have used several of those, notably many bribes, and loyalty is still a flat zero. I see that the bribe tooltip offers loyalty, but it didn't appy on the arabian peninsula, apparently. (The others I don't have access to at this level of CP.) As an aside, I don't seem to be able to place missionari...

How do I improve loyalty during peace?

I have bribed my way to protectorate status in Dubai. However, I cannot immigrate any of my citizens, because I have no loyalty. None of the colonial options that I see mention loyalty improvements.

How can I raise my loyalty a few points?

Many Thanks,

Thanks, all. For my first game, I turned up the units limit to 2x for sandboxing. That would imply I should have access to GB commercial units, then, right?

How do I build a new merchant fleet?

I would like to build up my merchant capacity (in the tradeovals). But I don't see a comparable unit in any of the build screens. It does not appear to be the same as a transport squadron.

Can anyone please instruct me?

Many Thanks,

Mystery solved: processing order

It was a cashflow issue: South America (particularly Brazil) seems to process last on my purchase trades, every turn. So as I spent money elsewhere, the process would simply stop once my cash was depleted, prior to sales to my population. (No message is included about being out of funds, but that is...

I can now break the defensive treaty

Will that open up the DoW option?

Even with the temporary CB, I can't actually gain anything in a war with Greece (other than personal satisfaction) right? There would be no real point other than joy in their demise? Does an eventual peace offer include any possible benefits for me?

I do not see a way to cancel the agreement. In which case the CB is mystifyingly irrelevant.... Any ...

I agree

The "neutral" powers are key validators. I am presuming the destruction the CSA raiders are wreaking is on USA-flagged vessels only. After all, the French will be upset whether you steal their goods or just sink them!

The financial results are prospective estimates, meaning that you probably will not achieve all that you are told.

I don't know much about CSA commerce raiders. Did they strictly seek to destroy? I would have thought that privateering would have been the draw (seizure being preferable to destruction, and profitable). Was that not militarily feasible, or was it a cultural issue, or maybe something else going on?

I've had it work both ways. The impact on NM is huge, but not necessarily sudden death.
