Just checked this again with two pillaged areas, Fort William Henry and Oswego, depot in each, stack with an activated commander in each, and both areas pillaged. One stack enters with the "h" key, the other doesn't :tournepas Even tried splitting a unit off and trying that, still wouldn't work. Not...

H key

Have just found out that hitting the "H" key to put a unit or stack into the structure does not seem to work if the area has been pillaged. Have just tried it in 2 different regions, both pillaged, and doesn't work in either. Can't remember an occasion when it hasn't worked before though. Is this WA...

Playing FIW, Brits, have just marched to Fort Duquesne and found it un guarded. :tournepas
Might I suggest for the next version of the mod a locked garrison for it so it doesn't fall quite so easily.

If you're playing with hardened attrition on Arsan is right, you need more supply than you're consuming each go for units to regain strength. If the area is pillaged then you regain strength even slower. Watch out for harbours in winter being blockaded by ice as this lessens the supply aswell. If yo...

You've got to play with hardened attrition on for human player only, not for AI. Makes you prepare, plan and check the weather :D
Should really be the default option for a better game :)

Depots and Athena

If you play with the option "hardened attrition for player only", does it mean that the AI can get replacements for its incomplete units if they are in any region with a structure? They don't have to be with a depot? The reason I'm asking is that I'm playing AWI, latest patch and com mod, Brits. Hav...

If you are besieging a decent sized army in a fort then assaulting the fort is an expensive option. If there is a harbour present then you are not going to starve them out unless you blockade the harbour aswell. Besiege and blockade will force the enemy to try and flee or they will wither away insid...

You will see a symbol near the harbour when you have enough ships to blockade it. If you hold your mouse over the sea area to be blockaded it will tell you how many ships you need. :) If you hold your mouse over the harbour to be blockaded it will tell you which sea areas you will need to blockade. ...

Yes the button is there, look at the New York battery in my save game, it is the only coastal battery with the bombard button. None of the others have it although the battery in Savanah did have it a couple of turns earlier. Check those in Halifax and Jamaica. If bombard is the default action of nav...

With regard to the Boston supply problem I've found that it helps if you send the two transports with Howe and his army into Boston and then build a depot with the two transports. Then build a fort with the below strength art and supply wagon. Send the rest of the fleet up to Halifax so it doesn't d...

But they can, OK they can't assault etc, etc, but they can still move even if not activated. Have noticed that it's been like this for a few patches but am not sure if i...
