Re: Trade and Missions

I don't think there is much you can do to force the pace early game. Your best early route to an Empire is to win a war and take a colony but the problem is that you probably can't even touch GB and may struggle against France? If you need to build prestige, you could gamble on a localised war with...

Re: Trade and Missions

And sadly I know see the first major bugs: Lost a thousand prestige without a reason. Just went from 5000 to 4000 in one turn. And Austria has an army 4 times as big as mine. Nice...

Re: Trade and Missions

I am currently in year 1857 and my is it hard to get ahead regarding prestige. I am on position 7 and France has an army 1.5 times as big as mine. My colonial empire is a joke, though I guess that's due to the missing options. Still, interesting game, though often I can only skip turns...

Re: Trade and Missions

Good to know! Should help me with the unifiction. Never tried to station troops anywhere else than on my soil. But isn't the war with France mandatory for the unification? Thought I read something like that here on the forum somewhere. Did not look into the event file, though, to not spoil anything.

Oh, and one more question....I am running the latest patch 1.04.5 (I think). Is there anything else I should apply? Like modifications users made? For example some texts seem to be missing. Does someone have some kind of oversight? I have seen some mods in different threads, but can't seem to find t...

I second that! Would love to play a War of the Roses campaign with looooottssss of events and the option to behead my foes :)

Re: Trade and Missions

Ah, ok. Well, if there is no event chain that leads to a Greater Germany solution, I guess I will go the historical route. Such a shame. Would have been interesting :)

Re: Trade and Missions

Thanks again, Loki! The London Protocol already fired early 1852, so the event chain is still on track. Good, I do not like to start historical wars without an event. Do you know if it is possible to reach the "Greater Germany" unification via events? I currently have the option to start t...

I have another question regarding events. As I am playing as Prussia, I wonder if the war for Schleswig-Holstein is resolved via events? I am in early 1852 now and nothing happened so far. Does anyone know, if I have to declare war myself to start the conflict or does it still happen? Historically s...

Re: Poll. Future of the AGE engine.

As much fun as I had with the old engine, I think it is really outdated. I am a single player and Athena is just not up to that challenge. Not saying that I am brilliant strategist, but when you know how the engine works, it can hardly beat you without "cheating" (eg. penalties for the hum...

Hello Leibst,

I do not think that it has to do with not enough supply carts, though I think it would make sense in Truro. I slowly should receive supply, but it just does not happen.

As I built a depot, the region should supply 14x5 supply points, but my army's supply pool does not fill up anymore and therefor the...

I do not possess the HAN add-on, so I cannot comment on this. But in the other scenarios of BOR and PAR I have not encountered this bug. Seems to be a problem exclusively with this scenario.

You are surely right when it comes to pbem. But I am mainly a single player gamer and here this game, at least in my eyes, lacks a lot.

Yes, I already spent everything on replacements. Well, over the course of years of course.

I have set attrition to standard, which kin...
