Re: The Never Ending Story

I played out the 1645 scenario as the Parliamentarians and got the victory screen, albeit a minor victory.

Re: New patch ?

Please consider my thoughts on allowing the Royalists a reasonable chance to take Oxford early on. There is a Royalist Commission that can be played for Oxford on Turn 1 but it seems to have 0% chance of happening (I replayed it 15 times). A simple tweak could make this high probability or a certain...

Re: A useful House Agreement

There is a Royalist Commission that can be played for Oxford on Turn 1 but it seems to have 0% chance of happening ( I replayed it 15 times). A simple tweak could make this high probability or a certainty. Royalist loyalty is 24%, Parliamentarian 26%, Neutral 51%. One wonders how accurate this is; i...

Re: Madrid - Talavera RR Map Error

I'm not out to be captious with a project I very much admire; that said however, the great attention to historical detail you can see throughout Espańa 1936 is marred by some significant RR map errors. Many of these can be seen when compared with this German 1921 map of existing Spanish railways: ht...

Madrid - Talavera RR Map Error

The reason the Nationalists were able to drive on Toledo so quickly in 1936 was their use of the Madrid-Badajoz railway which passed through the important large town/small city of Talavera del Tajo (Talavera). This important RR is missing from the SCW map thus making it difficult (but not impossible...

Re: Can the CSA actually win?

Yes and he had intended to move earlier and head south. Two final factors closed the door for Lee: his horses were too weak to pull guns and wagons with heavy mud and he was waiting for the land to dry out; and secondly the infamous CSA supply train for his army that failed to appear when he finally...

Re: Can the CSA actually win?

A good question and I don't have Furguson's book on Richmond during the war. One might assume it was made during the period of the siege in 64-65, but it could really apply to any period he was fighting to defend Richmond, even back to the Peninsula campaign. So I don't know. As well: "reported...

Re: Can the CSA actually win?

Yes and a Confederate victory often involves finally moving the capital out of Richmond later in the war and fighting on. When Lee capitulated the CSA still controlled a huge area and a more effective strategy would have been that of trading some of this space for time; i.e.moving the capital back t...

You're right, I just checked and found various saved games from earlier iterations there though not my most recent before the upgrade. I had quite forgotten about that.

Re: Civil War II has been updated to version 1.6.3!

It's not a big deal but I believe the fix ran an uninstall and wiped the Save folder clean as one would expect. It caught me by surprise as I simply used the Update function on the game menu to get the new patch.

That is why I don't think of it as AI (Artificial Intelligence) but as a PO (Programmed Opponent).
Really in a game with this scope the PO is more a way to test out how the system works and get familiar with all the variables.
Then go play a human.

I proposed defensive reality given WWI trench warfare in France, yes, but I also suggested offensive perks too. Also historical. Intentional attrition is entirely part of a game dynamic, as well as historical.

Some initial observations in playing out CP vs AI for a month now: --Army titles are constantly lost with the army reverting to the generic tag; e.g. 11.Armee at the beginning of a turn ends up as "Armee (Ger)" for various reasons at the end, the most likely reason seems to be absorbing other corps ...

I still think it's a bit too harsh but more time, and turns, will tell. Probably has a lot to do with it being my first pre-RR supply grid game with this system.
