Unit portraits not updating...

Sun Oct 12, 2014 8:20 am

Surprised to find that this still hasn't been fixed as | know it was reported months ago: when you 'train up' a unit to the next level e.g. conscript to regular, the unit portrait on the map doesn't change. The unit portrait in the unit panel changes but this is not reflected on the map.

This might be surprising, but this is a difficult issue. Do you have a simple saved game example showing the problem?

Saved scenario attached.

Look in Clermount, OH (Cincinnati) for McClellan's stack. He is stacked with 2 Militia units. The 1st Ohio Mil. consists of the 1st Ohio Mil. and the 3rd Ohio Mil. regiments, both of which were just upgraded by McClellan to conscripts. In the same stack is the 2nd Ohio Mil. which consists of only the 2nd Ohio Mil. regiment which has not yet been upgraded by McClellan, just to compare.

The portrait on the 1st Ohio Mil. in the Stack Panel changed from the portrait you still see on the 2nd Ohio Mil., after both regiments were upgraded, but on the map it is still the same as when it was built, which is of course also the same portrait as the 2nd Ohio Mil. has on map.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Orso. Sorry Pocus but I am not very computer savy and I have no idea how to upload (or even take) a screen shot. What Orso has shown you is the same problem I am experiencing.

Thanks Pocus. Does this mean it will be fixed in the next patch?
