Re: Civil War III

http://www.nellaware.com/blog/civil-war-army-organization-and-order-of-rank.html This states that CSA Divisions were sometimes twice as large as the Union's. What if we only gave Union Divisions 10 slots? Until CW3, such a house rule might put some new life in the CSA. Without having looked deeper ...

Yes, but doesn’t the CSA player receive replacements quicker than the USA player based on the historical fact that the Confederacy placed more importance on filling up existing regiments compared to the Union’s reliance on new regiments in order to take advantage of the higher rate of recruitment t...

Re: Solitaire Man

Simply 'hot-seat' the game. Load a running scenario as one faction, issue your orders and save them. Then load the next faction you wish to play, and issue orders for it, etc. etc., until you have issued orders for all the factions you wish to play. When the turn is executed, and factions without or...

Re: Random generals

GF already described how it could make the game unplayable, but simply the way random leaders are generated--the characteristics of gener...

Isn't there also a second chance a reform sometime like around 1810?

Those 2 replacements that you see in the message boxes are elements which were replaced in units which were missing them. You do not get messages about how many hits were replaced at the start of a turn. You do not need to buy any fixed number of replacement chits; that would make no sense. As you h...

Re: Russia and Caucasian Tribes: What's the deal?

I'm not sure if that is the fact, but IIRC, factions lesser than minor factions (tribes, etc.) do not follow the same rules as minor factions and above.

Re: Interested in a Civil War II Gold version?

All Indians are Indians; they are one faction in the game. Unless each tribe gets it's own faction, it's not possible to do Indian Wars reasonably.

Re: Use of Armies before Corps are enabled

Not only will they defend normally, they can be called on to be included in combat; and I'm not talking about MTSG.

I think stack inside a structure with an Army stack outside, do not count for additional stacks in the region. Structures are kind of their own region.
