Passage rights for vassals

Ok, I am having some trouble creating a file to drop which would allow the Ottoman's allies to enter the regions of the Ottoman's vassals. It would need to change the prohibition into a traverse permission - kind of like a diplomatic agreement of 'Give Passage Rights.' Any thoughts or suggestions? I...

Re: Posture question to attack an other region when ennemy is already in the start region

This is a tough one, but what I do is drop the corps I want to attack the unit in the next region on the force you want to attack. Make sure you are in Blue attack posture and Orange defense posture.
Dropping will create the attack. Being in blue stance will let you get out of the region, usually.

Re: Supply

I do not know for sure. I calculate supply based upon elements, not current stock. Each unit has a certain number of element, usually from four to ten, but if you click on individual units you will see how many. Regions have a supply value. A city, for example, might have 20 supply. You gather suppl...

Re: Schlieffen Plan After The War Starts ?

Great line of play.
It might work. I have tried this unsuccessfully, but with a lot of progress. My problem is I do not keep NM in control. But as I am abandoning the Schlieffen Plan I am working to make your line of play my successful line of play.

Re: Loaned Spanish fleet can't be returned?

Well Cpt O I must disagree. As Russia I have two Swedish fleets as 'loaners.'
There are also no in game mechanisms to 'break' the treaty which loaned the units.
Thanks for your thoughts, but they clearly do not apply to this situation.

Re: Losing Commander in Chief

I have been thinking about your post and the 'locked' Commanders. Initially, I did not understand if I stack a commander with another unit he would unlock. This is a useful bit of information. I am still trying to adjust to stationary commanders. I think I really like this change as it is quite hist...

Re: Mantuan War - 1634... how much longer?

Well, maybe not light but at least noise. This is an event which kind of works as intended, but not always. Some thoughts by players about how this might work would perhaps flesh out the event without the current pitfalls.

Re: Sieging of Tsaritsyn

You are correct that Tsaritsyn is hard to siege as it is a port. If you cannot bring a fleet down from the north to blockade, my preferred support, use the British fleet to take Astrakhan. If I remember right, some of this fleet can then move up the river to Tsaritsyn.

Re: Death by Lack of WS

Your list is much better than what I could have gathered. I do think, however, you have left Oxford off the list. If the crown holds Oxford, which you and I know is challenging to do, then a workshop or factory can be built to increase available WS.

I am not sure I agree. Once confronted with passing ships, it is a bit like marching into a hostile region and units activate. Try your experiment with your gunboats in orange attack mode. I think you will see a difference. Also, if you send all ships in passive avoid combat mode they should slip by...
