I checked my Duffy books on the Prussian and Austrian army and they do not list one regiment which was merged or voluntarily disbanded during the SYW. Remember that regiments in the mid 18th century were a semi-private affair with every officer from company captain on up deriving a nice profit from...

Thanks for the information Hohenlohe! Interesting stuff. I think a diplomacy page in the ledger that simply showed relations with every sovereign might be better than events. There is probably a way to skim through past events which I have not figured out yet. But the ledger is obvious even to new p...

Something related to this I suspect. It is March 1757, same situation I describe above, playing with the 1.03 beta 5 patch. At the end of 1756 the Hessian, Hannoverian, and Braunschweig formations became manipulable by me (I reorganized how the Rgt are grouped into brigades). A couple turns later th...

So the generalizations which this thread lead me to: 1. It is good to have one Cav Rgt in each Bgd Question: the Cavalryman ability says "+25% bonus to all units in the stack" does this (e.g.) mean Seydlitz gives a bonus to Cavs that are not in his brigade, but attached to other brigades that are in...

In general, I prefer muted colors on computer-game maps . . . or so I thought. I'm not colorblined, but I agree with the OP and some of the other contents that the colors could be a bit more contrasting.

I've tried in the Saxony scenario to either (a) assign a brigade to a 3 star (e.g., Ferdinand or Keith), and then assign him a corps commander as well else to (b) assign a brigade to him after a corps has been formed. I've never been able to get this to work so far, and it seems these guys can be ei...

. . . I'd just caution that the the war may not have been particularly important in a classical, geopolitical sense.

Best Way to Make use of Ambushing Sneaky Types?

Obviously there are some good leaders, and the irregulars and indians are well suited for the role. But beyond that I'm not getting a clear sense for the best way to use them. I would think that to get maximum ambush effect you should have one or two regiments both sneaky types grouped together into...
