Austria Resurgent?

Austria Resurgent? http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/923/PH5vRb.jpg The infamous Roman riots of late 1857 led to a conflict that had engulfed much of Southern Europe by late 1858. Initially, and predictably, the Austrians simply intervened to prop up the Papacy and its control of much of centra...

Re: American Civil War Peace

I'm not sure. The war was very active, I was seeing the naval combat image during turn resolution and provinces change to Union control etc. So it really shouldn't have been the auto-white peace event. On the other hand, you as a player, can't make peace in the context of a Full war till the period ...

Re: A quick fix to the Force Pool problem

Hi! Could someone clarify if the forcepool problem is solved if you have started a new game under the new patch? Thanks very much!

Kiev, February 1858

Kiev, January – February 1858 Stockholm had, in many ways, seen the powers of Europe hanker after a lost past. It was an attempt to insist that the events of 1848-50 had not happened, that Britain, France, the Ottomans, Austria and Russia had not been at war. That Prussia had not attacked Sweden. I...

American Civil War Peace

To confirm this happens and a save. Bascially in early 1862 the US civil war ended in a white peace. The US was clearly winning and the war was active. Also its a 'full war' so shouldn't end early. I've got massive internet problems so really hard to provide saves. But the wetransfer link gives the ...

Re: Strange white peace in U. S. Civil War

While playing the 1850 campaign, I watched the U. S. Civil War start in 1861 as usual, and I kept hopping over to North America from my country to watch how it went. The Union successfully invaded the Carolinas, from which they took both Atlanta and Richmond within a single year. The western theate...

A fatal alliance

St Petersburg, November 1856 As he felt himself moving closer to St Petersburg, Alexander relaxed. For many reasons, Moscow had such bad memories that he never felt at ease there.

Re: Several questions

Hard to say. Things to look at - your population will buy so many common and food good types (you can see the limit in F4), but also demand variety, So you can't fill up all that local demand without a full range (the UK should be well placed for this but its still a problem).

Re: Stars Fell on Alabama - An America AAR

can understand the time pressure. I find there are games where you can play for 30 mins/couple of turns then leave it and come back. But that doesn't work for me with PoN, not least as there is so much long term planning and its too easy to forget what you were trying to do. Hope the work stays (jus...
