Questions from a new player

Wed May 03, 2017 10:37 am

Hello, I picked up RUS Gold on Steam and I've been playing for about a month. Here's a few questions:

1) How does the Patriot ability work? It seems like I should leave that general in command of a stack somewhere and he will generate volunteers and partisans, but that isn't happening.

2) Was there any influence on the engine from the VGCW board wargame? I see many similar mechanics, especially the way general seniority and promotion is handled.

3) Is there a 'look at the next stack' command (as in Steel Panthers)?

I'll post more questions here as they come up. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum Kaddo,

You ask questions beyond my competence to answer. As to #1, put the leader in a 5 level city (I think that is right) and they will generate volunteers.

As to the other two, I have no clue.

Thanks for the tip on #1. I'll try it but it'll take a few turns, my only general with that ability is currently leading an army. As for #3 I found it by accident, it's the button with the 'skip to the next track' symbol.

I did not know what you meant by look at the next track.

Keyboards vary, but if using the USA layout, E and R cycle land units. T and Y cycle naval units. W cycles locked units.

I still don't know how Patriot works. I left a general with the ability in Saratov for a long time and nothing happened. :confused:

I do have a new question though: when you disband a unit, do you get some resources (money, men, WS) back?

You do make a recovery of some resources if you are supplied.

I think the Patriot ability requires a city of a certain size, perhaps a 5 level?

I'll keep testing Patriot for now. And one more question has come up: it looks like German (in fact, Central Powers, because I have this issue with Austrian and Hungarian units too) reserve infantry (in the alternate history scenario) can't be trained up. Has anyone modded them to be trainable ?
