Can't enable divison or corp command

Wed Jun 26, 2013 9:04 am

I am having trouble creating division and corps. I am playing the full campaign as the Union and I am still in 1861. I have a one star general and added a brigade but the button to make it a division is grayed out so I can't enable division command. One of the tool tips says that possible reason for this is : "all of your 0 division are on the field"
The same issue with my two star generals I can't enable a corps command with them in fact I can even add a brigade to these leaders. Am I doing something wrong or missing something?

Welcome to the forums. :wavey: There was a change a few versions ago, that limit the date that divisions and corps can be formed. If you have not passed the date (and I assume you haven't by your question), then you can't form yet. I don't remember the exact dates, but it has been listed in the forums by various people. I believe corps formation is in 1862.

Divisions can be formed beginning in early October of 1861. Corps formation is allowed starting in early March of 1862.

The dates are:

Creating Divisions: 1861-Oct-01
Creating Corps: 1862-Mar-01

To create a division with a leader:
  • It must be the 1st of October, 1861 or later.
  • The leader cannot be the commander of an army, a corp, another division--of course--, nor combined with a brigade.
  • The leader must be activated--has the light beige envelope at the top left corner of his unit's picture-frame, and on the Unit Display when clicked.
  • If the leader meets these requirements, click on the leader and then on the Enable Division Command button to the left of the Unit Display in the Special Orders section in the Tab with the Tent.
    • You must now maintain at least one unit in your newly formed division. If you leave a Division Commander alone without any units and execute a turn, the division will be disbanded.
    • To add units to a division left-click on the division and then cntl-left-click on the unit(s) you wish to add to the division and either click the Combine-Units Special-Orders button or press <cntl><c>
    • To break-down a division to it's constituent units, left-click on the division then click on the Split-Unit button or press <cnlt><d>.

To create a corp with a leader:
  • It must be the 1st of March, 1862 or later.
  • The leader must have obtained the rank of Maj. Gen. or greater.
  • The leader cannot be the commander of an army, or another corp, nor combined with a brigade.
  • The leader is NOT required to be activated, but if Hardened-Activation rules are in affect, the leader must be unlocked.
  • The leader must be within the Command Radius of the Army Commander/HQ.
  • If the leader meets these requirements, click on the leader and then on the Attach Corp to Army button.
    • Your Corp status is maintained as long as you wish, regardless of if the corp is empty or not or within or outside the command radius of any army HQ or not, with one exception:If you transport a corp with Real-Transports™, either riverine or oceanic, the corp with be disbanded :p leure:.
      Ergo, if you want to invade with a corp, your invasion coastal/river region must be within the command radius of an army HQ. As soon as you drag-n-drop the corp commander from the transports to plot his move, you can recreate his corp, but only if he is within the command radius of an army HQ.
      The army HQ may be on a transport to facilitate this.


:p apy: Questions?

Thank you very much for the detailed answers! I have not reached October 1861 yet, so that would explain it!
