It requires some work and investigation.
A good time to release AJE databases, just in case there are people interested in modding.

But it has been a while since I played it...
On the Second Punic war scenario Romans rule the sea indeed , but not because of its admirals but for their quinquerremes that outclass the cartaghinians by far.

The exploits of the roman navy vs Carthage were not because their commanders were always "active", this is gamey or buggy.
But because a conjunction of factors, in the game can be represented by abilities of the commanders, ships, troops, resources...
For example, just load the -219 scenario, both Consuls (L. Aemilius Paullus and M. Livius Salinator) have the double category, and why? It is true they defeated the Illyrians, but in land battles.
They were Consuls a second time in different years of the second punic war, and again participated in land battles.
So why are they Admirals, because they commanded a fleet to arrive to Illyria?
Anyway the game is as is, unless a modder appears
