Re: How to form division

And you may have been too early. It takes a bit before division can be formed to represent the gradual organization of the armies.

Re: PP Bombardement n No Loss Report

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...

With Windows 7 and later, right click and select run as administrator.

Re: Confederate Seniority + Army Command Problem

It is a question of how you are handling you leaders. Keep each army commander as a distinct unit. This should allow you to do as you wish.
Remember corps commanders will hold on to their old commanders until a new army general is the one who is nearest.

Re: Filling in the Ranks

What I do is bring up the unit on the unit detail screen, then click on the element.
Then I open the replacement screen and look for the one with the same symbol.
If this makes sense.

1. Yes, I did miss answering your question. I did not realize both leaders had the same seniority. I am pretty sure leaders are not stacked by seniority within leaders of the same rating, only by absolute seniority as in a table.

Excellent report. Thanks for sharing. To a few of your points. Promotion is individual but also related to probabilities. Gustavus was just not as luck in the determination. Winning a battle but losing more troops is common for superior commanders in all AGEOD games. This is mostly because they keep...

Re: First game

I am not exactly certain this is what you are asking, but when leaders are inactive they only can do two of the four stances. Mostly, they cannot attack.
