Re: Landing seperate corps

Also, I don't recall when an entire corps was ever sent to conduct an amphibious assault. It happened. First one I wikipedia'd was the first battle of Fort Fisher - a corp of the Army of the James versus a division of the Army of Northern Virginia. . But was that an actual amphibious assault? I dir...

Re: Landing seperate corps

Iv tried doing that before. The Corps "structure" is gone as soon as you board a ship. Splitting up ships wouldn't work. I believe it was designed that way since a corps can't stay intact on multiple ships and needs time to re-assemble after they land. Also, I don't recall when an entire ...

15 elements, and you can get that max with all artillery. For the best division
it's optimal not to have all of one thing, except an artillery division IN a corps.

Re: Civil War 3 suggestion that I like so much I'm posting it again ;)

Most players want a historical feel to the game, and politics played an enormous role during the war. There were just too many incompetent generals active in leadership to simply avoid that fact by appointing those we know are going to perform better. Without consequences to those choices I wouldn't...

While I still believe that leapfrogging a far more junior general over the heads of those more senior commanders should have repercussions (I'm not currently sure what those repercussions should be), I don't believe that it should be any great obstacle either. Just think of Lincoln choosing Meade ;...

Yet they turn hostile when the Sioux event fires. That's why I said it's a bug. Was there an Apache/Hopi

Re: Native Indians regional devisions

It's the Sioux Uprising of 1862 event. They are no longer neutral. They will turn back to neutral sometime in 1863. It's a bug since it was only something that happened in the Minnesota River valley. You can use your Subvert Indians regional decision card to try to turn them into union assets or att...

Re: Building a flatboat in Southeastern California

Southeastern California has no coast, so no flatboats. There should already be a fort there if
its not destroyed (as the South I always send someone to destroy it). You can build a depot
there that will help keep you supplied further South (or North, if you are playing the South).

Yea, I don't think there's any fix for that, other than to save the game, load the
CSA side and make purchases for it, then save as the Union and run the turn.

Will you need to own FOG2 in order to enjoy that battle feature, or will it be

I was imagining FOG:Empires as an adjunct to an established game.

I'm a Southerner - born and raised in Tennessee. I believe I would have been one
of the 42,000+ who fought for the Union. I proudly served in the USAF and even
got disabled during my service. I tend to look upon my fellow Southerners who
support the Lost Cause fantasy as near treasonous.
