Re: Recent Short Battlefield Tour of Central VA

Coming back from a visit to Richmond, going to the residence in Annapolis, MD. Stopped by the site of the North Anna action (Grant/Lee, May, '64) and a quick pop-in at Fredericksburg. Had been to neither before. The North Anna site is apparently maintained by Hanover Cty., VA. Some Civil War Trust ...

Re: capture of ships?

In battles, you can only capture ships if they are transports indeed. If you take over an harbor with stranded ships, you can capture some of them, particularly if you are blockading the harbor. There is no boarding party feature in WON, sorry. brigs and small ships get captured too. It's a bit of ...

Re: Spain Division Problem

Lowering max elements in a formed division could be a good idea. Or&and maybe also lowering command capacity. problem is that commanding a division costs 4 command points, whether the div is 12 or 18 elements.. 5 18 elements divisions is a stack of 90 elements (including 5 leaders) a 3star can ...

Re: Spain Division Problem

If the devs could do that small change, it would make a big difference.

And the fact that in most case an old style division made of ...

Re: Spain Division Problem

If there must be some old style divisions formed at game or scenario start for a preform nation, well the player and AI must know that if you break it down, you won't be able to reform it since you have 0 divisions allowed. This should be the simplest method. No divs before reforms, and the ones you...

At the moment it does not seem possible to create this type of event. Even it was it would take a lot of time.

Re: Spain Division Problem

My conclusion is therefore, the Military Reforms should only be changed in that they should allow for either an unlimited number of division, or a much higher number of divisions, than is currently allowed. This would IMHO remove all objections and complaints about Military Reforms, other than perh...

Yes, on the other hand so many people complained on the idea that you had to play the whole of a side (players who wanted to play - only - say Russia or GB, and not the all anti-French coalition) that the error was understandable...

The key in this game should be that supply wagons shouldn't be able to travel accross a province with an enemy fort, meaning that an army just cannot go any further for more than a turn or two.

Indeed, in the end it's the fortress of northern France, well manned, that gave the french army time to regroup and eventually get sort of a final draw with the Denain victoryar whereas it looked like the allies were on their way to Paris a few years earlier before getting bogged down in sieges.

Well to me replayability means having to face a challenge, and a challenge means an AI that is given the tools to compete.

No idea is stupid. I stil think that it would be better for the reforms to indeed give the country/player a whole new army.
