Re: Can the Austria join Coalition in 1805 Scripted Event be removed?

I agree here. There are reasons for Austria and France to get along, as Talleyrand pointed out to Napoleon. I love the effort being put into those scripts, wich bring the game alive, especially in singleplayer. They should be optional though in MP in the regard to questions of alliance and war and p...

Re: Promotions

Find the leader on the map, put him into an own stack (must be leader), find the promotion special order (same column as where you form divisions etc), press button, wait till next turn, voilá.

Re: Setup Occupation

Also affects eastern Prussia Byalistock region.

Re: Things I've been wrong about (or learned, or both)

The terms brigade and divisions were actually used differently in the respective armies. If I remember correctly, it was a matter of size, due to the different supply with officers in both armies. A brigade is referred to as a formation of subunits that work together to achieve a certain tactical ta...

Aren't those peace options one-way-streets? I always thought that certain conditions need to be met and then Austria can't do anything about it.

The system with an unblockable Matagorda on one hand and the probability to lose some RGDs by the "rotting cotton"-event on the other hand, reflects the resiliience yet unpredictibility of the second economy in a beautifully crafted manner.

At least in my version of the game (1.06) the RGD to sell cotto can be used in Matagorda regardless of regional ownership. The event "cotton rotting in harbour" takes away one of those RGDs. The event that traders managed to run the blockade and sell cotton is unrelated, afaik (but could u...

Reading these posts with much interest. The 'problem' to me with many of the suggested 'fixes' is that the political generals were not Lincoln's generals, but those of the Radical Republicans. To keep the game 'historical' it is important that victory or loss in battle would not impact the 'purity'...
