I'd settle for Britain not entering the war right away if France decides to invade Luxemburg.

Units usually have fewer ribbons than elements. 2xInf brigades will only have 1 ribbon when full, 2xInf/1xCav brigades only 2 when full, a lot of big 7 or 8 element elite brigades will only have 4 when full. I think it's WAD, but beyond space limitations I'm not sure what the justification is. Also,...

Unlock State Militias

The state militia regiments spawned by event and as the responses to enemy raids all seem to be stuck in whichever region they happen to appear. Confining these local response forces to a limited area is a good way to offset the fact that you're given the units for free, but I think it'd make a bit ...

Kentucky closed, and I can't form corps.

Late Sept. 1862 in an April '61 Union campaign, Kentucky regions are all still closed except for the Cincinnati-Louisville-Lexington triangle, and corps are not available (yes, the generals are active, have 2 stars, are within range of an army, command no troops directly, etc.). Any ideas?[ATTACH]24...

Against the AI, I prefer playing as the Union.

The management issues the Union player faces are just...

What caranorn said. I'm sure it won't be a problem after a couple of games, but a new player has no information besides cost, unless a given unit type is already on the map, which isn't always the case.

Construction information

I'd like to know what the stats of certain units are before I put them on the map. Whenever I click on, for example, Sappers, I'd like the element information window to pop up.

I disagree again. We don't know what would have happened. He let Lee get away after Antietam, but so what?
