The build queue, F2. Can I build more than the 25-30 squares that are in there? I've never tried, but recently been wondering that.

Are depots good for 2 provinces around? Meaning let's say St. Louis, the supply from the depot would stretch two pieces of territory around?

That uses up so much supply and cohesion though. Guess it's got to be done.

So I have been balancing what I have built, but I wonder if early on I should have focused on infantry right off the hop.

Another thing, why do I even build river units when I can't stop the confederates from transporting troops along it when I have all the choke points covered

I need to organize myself so much better in game. I have so many generals sitting around doing nothing. But it's so hard to allocate properly early on and as the game goes on. This game has me hooked, but damn, it's not the easiest. I find the two turns per month very difficult especially when gener...

Well the fleet sailed and did the distant offload in the same turn. They would have only known after it sailed and I landed. Now, if they had a corp march to the sound of battle, then I get it. Just seemed strange. On another note, how many divisions per corp typically. I've been going 3 How many re...

Question about AI.
I lost Norfolk, but put together any army to retake it. But out of nowhere a confederate corp rails in and defeats me. I have ships off of Norfolk and never saw the confederates do this until I land and attack. I only ask because it seemed like a reactive move.

Well, it seems between purchasing my own replacements and putting them in passive mode that my units for the most part are coming out full. As an aside, can you purchase chits you don't have in the F2 menu? For cavalry for example, lets say it tells me I have 6 chits missing, but no replacements. Ca...

I'm actually finding that managing my own replacements is far more efficient and effective than allowing the computer to do it for me. I have changed to that

I will have to take a look at the messages, or at least pay more attention. Having said that, typically no, I have not seen those messages. But I will see let's say a unit that has 2 regiments, one has 600, the other has 570, and it never gets to the full 600. Having said that Captain Orso, or anyon...

I'm getting a handle on supply. What is still baffling me is the whole replacement thing. It's driving me crazy (lol) that when I create new units, they are short men, and never seem to get to full strength, even putting them in passive mode. I had the replacement setting to 15%, but I decided to ch...

Are there default settings for the ai and player that people use aside from what the game has set? Supply, I see in some cases that I take a city, and that it takes time for supply to accumulate. Specifically in kansas and missouri and the west, do I need to build depots all over? Is that a good str...

How many naval units do you require to do that, is it 4 or 8?
For the rivers, do you need 4 or 8 to block off a portion which will prevent riverine transport by the confederates.

I find as more and more units come into the game, I play 3 turns, then exit, and it prevents the critical error. But I have been getting that as well.

Ok, so forming units that I move prior to getting the message saying that training is completed will always end up short men. Usually it's like a Brigade with two infantry and one cavalry for example where maybe saying the cavalry is short, or a conscript unit is short. From what you are telling me,...

Another question I have. As the Union, I seem to be having a difficult time replenishing my units. I have played a few games, starts and restarts, one where I held off building units so that my understrength ones can be reinforced, and others where I am constantly building units, but then it seems t...

So curious, I fought a battle at Manassas, and the Confederates ended up retreating and I took Manassas, but it tells me that the battle was a loss, and a lost a morale point for that. Correct me if I'm wrong, however, if i go into the battle, and force them to retreat, did I not win the battle? A b...

Thanks Durk and Armchair General.

On a side note, is it good to have naval engineers in my blockading fleets or no?

Another question, short of purchasing replacements from the replacement pool, does the Union ever auto replenish their units? The first option is quite pricey and almost impossible. Having said that, units that are quit depleted, can they be "deleted" or decommissioned? Is there value with all the g...

Questions

What are the optimal game settings to set up for the player and AI if I am chasing some historical accuracy.

I have confederate cavalry especially in MO running amok, I can't seem to track them down, is it really a matter of building cavalry and more cavalry?

I know you can purchase replacements. But I thought if it showed in the red, and there isn't a number in black, then you don't have replacements to purchase. I just assumed the game auto replenished units, but it seems the Union does so more slowly. I will have to keep this in mind. As for the block...

Union Replacements/Other Items

Every turn my replacement numbers get higher and it doesn't seem as though they get replaced. I'm talking about the F2 menu. How do I get them to replenish my units to bring them back to full strength. It just seems to get worse and worse. For blockading. Do I just place my blockade units in the dif...
