Re: Thoughts

Yes, on the other hand so many people complained on the idea that you had to play the whole of a side (players who wanted to play - only - say Russia or GB, and not the all anti-French coalition) that the error was understandable... Overall I still feel that, with dozens of hours of dedicated and k...

Re: Thoughts

Wars of Succession uses the old engine, but with the simplified rules (like the Alea Jacta Est series): no complex command chain or supply, no diplomacy just to name the three most blatant differences... :indien: Exactly. War of Succession is just a game better tailored to the existing engine, wher...

Re: RoP nostalgia

Is this nostalgia for Rise of Prussia or Napoleon's Campaigns as some replies mention Spanish Ulcer scenario - although some 300 turns it rather stretches the definition of scenario? Anyway, I just accept that in Ageod games you are Napoleon unable to intervene in what Grouchy is doing on the right...

Re: Sieges

The key in this game should be that supply wagons shouldn't be able to travel accross a province with an enemy fort, meaning that an army just cannot go any further for more than a turn or two. Not sure how this could be done :bonk: Well I don't know either, I am not the designer ! But it sure is i...

Re: Sieges

Indeed, in the end it's the fortress of northern France, well manned, that gave the french army time to regroup and eventually get sort of a final draw with the Denain victoryar whereas it looked like the allies were on their way to Paris a few years earlier before getting bogged down in sieges.

Re: Spain Division Problem

Well to me replayability means having to face a challenge, and a challenge means an AI that is given the tools to compete. With the game set up as it is, once you trash Austria and Prussia once, they are dead in the water for the whole game. Russia a tiny bit less so, but still massively weakened if...

Re: Spain Division Problem

No idea is stupid. I stil think that it would be better for the reforms to indeed give the country/player a whole new army. Maybe there should be some sort of instrument coded so that elements don't disappear but are transferred to the new divs, I don't know what could be doable. But what I know is ...

Re: Spain Division Problem

I agree as far as the aI, but in this PBEM game i am in, the reforms have guaranteed that I cannot ever even try to fight any other power now. At least before the reforms I could make 10 divisions and create 1 or 2 armies and have 3-4000 power. Now I cannot even do that, I am relegated to the backs...

WAD, this is no bug here...you are allowed only 5 Divisions of the "old" style after the Reform (i.e. combining Brigades with leaders). What you get is 20 new Divisions units (single units) which are better and more powerful, to build. Those units can individually go into corps. This is h...

If AGEOD was to try and regenerate going a bit into tactical battles, a form of Pike and shot system could work pretty well : You'd need a crudish map generator (I mean they managed it in Napoleon 1813 by empire, a grandiose and epic failure, but a gem of a concept in 1999 !!!!)

Lending naval stacks does not currently work. Lending land stacks does. Britain, and France I believe, cannot offer an Expeditionary Force directly; they must wait to be asked for an EF. Other player controlled factions may directly offer an EF. To request an EF (F-1 is the requesting faction, F-2 ...

I have said it already but I honestly think WON's future in the short term lies more in a mod for War of successions... the main issue in WON is that by making a very open ended game, with lots of AI components for the AI to manage, all the problems are there at the core of the game.
