Re: Chain of Command Question

It works just fine in the game. Remember, the max baseline Command Points you can have in an Army or Corps stack is 16. This is achieved in a Corps, for example, by say the 2-star commander (8CP), and two 1-star leaders (4CP each = 8CP). This then can only be increased beyond 16 by a balloon, Signal...

This graphic anomaly didn't get picked up with the latest round of patchwork - also the thread about the "Congress returns to Philadelphia" message that keeps appearing may have been missed.

Any chance that these could be made "official" fixes?

I was able to make the tooltip read correctly by changing the value for "TerrainType" in the .rgn files. It seems to effect movement correctly but whether or not it addresses all game functions I'm not sure. I think the structures are fine so it's not the cities data that needs the fix. I attached t...

Terrain graphic errors?

It looks like the area with Dorcester should be clear, but the tooltip says woods. and the area with Worcester should be woods or even forest, but the tooltip say clear. Which is right?

Battle animation display

It would be a great improvement if we could see both the battle 'wheel' animation and the Range - Hour commentary in the text display at the bottom of the page at the same time.

Not sure if this was always the case before RC-11, but it don't happen anymore.

using the latest beta patch RC 11, 1775 Campaign. Twice so far the FI value has taken some major leaps back and forth between 40's down to 10's and then gradually back up to 40's. Recently it's jumped back at 100 but either way I never receive a message about what's going on except when a diplomat r...

Thanks again. I found a better way (for me anyway) - using the unit list and filtering "irregular" units. The rules state that Irregular units and Partisans may only take control of a structure if the Loyalty of the region is greater than 50%. Since Loyalty is not in effect during the F&IW these typ...

Regular or Irregular?

What's the best way to know if a unit is "irregular"? i.e. whether it can/cannot change control an enemy region or a structure? For an example of my confusion, digging through the model files it seems that some American "light infantry" are regular but some French "light infantry" are irregular. Als...

I believe it's because Indian units are considered as raiders and cannot capture forts by them alone (they need some "whitemen" units too).

You should see 1 VP for each strategic town and 2 VP's for each objective in this scenario. The objectives are 'valued' at 3 NM so they are worth 2VP each per Pg 11 of the manual. You only get points for "elements" destroyed, not men killed. Most miltary units are worth 1 VP per element, but those s...
