Post 1.04.03 event pack

I've had another go at 3 problematic events - the Crimean Chain, US Civil War and cleaning up India after the mutiny has been beatem. the 3 events in this pack replace USA_Events, GBR_Events and Crimean_Crisis. Before adding them strongly suggest you back up these files. I've tested but things do go...

1.04.3 vertex buffer

Testing out a provided save (the game was started under .03 so its not a conversion from an earlier game) to have a final go at trying to sort out the US civil war events.

Re: PON - Conflict in Europe Restarting - Open Invite!

thanks

ok that implies the CSA army didn't spawn. Need to rethink how to code that event so it is reliable

A death in Moscow

Moscow 1813 Moscow in January 1813 was a bleak place. Outside were layers of snow, soot, ash, and more snow – almost laid out with archaeological precision. Many homes had been burnt to the ground. The grander houses mostly survived the hasty French arson but were damaged. Slowly the residents were...

Just to place things in context ...

Before any more jumping around probably best to explain what I am trying to do. The norm for AGEOD AARs has always been reporting game play and this makes sense as many AARs are based on PBEM tussles. I've always felt this is a bit of a pity as the historical accuracy of the games and detailed rendi...

Re: New to AGEOD games and ROP

Personally I played the Saxony scenario 20+ times till I was winning every game. This helped me a lot with the basic mechanics of setting orders/stances etc. Beyond that I'd suggest reading two AARs. They are not for the current patch but the basics are sound and they will give you a lot of ideas of...

Re: Relations with other states

Few basic tricks: - the 'send support' mission (forget the actual wording) can't be refused and gives you a small boost - repeat twice a year and it adds up. The only potential cost is that you are notionally committed to backing them in a war but you can opt out - trade helps, simply buying their g...

Re: Which country to choose?

I think Prussia is a good choice. You have a lot of events around the road to unification, the war with Austria is optional, that with France is key. Post-unification there is a good modelling of the shift from Bismack's Euro-centric world to a more international mindset. You get some colonies by ev...

to be really helpful -- ' it depends'. I'd avoid Belgium, there really is too little to do. US and Japan are slow starters, but once they pass the 1860s both offer scope. Austria and France are both fun, Austria is more of a European power but you can intervene across the continent (and take some on...
