Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

I think I'm going to have to begrudgingly turn supply rules off. No matter how many resources I give the CSA she just seems to bleed her people away in supply dead zones like West Virginia. And does it ever build depots? It'll be a while until I play again but that is what I'll have to do.

Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

I'm very hesitant to do PBEM on top of it just being a lousy and slow process. Generally for a game like this I find people to be extremely gamey and use a lot of cheap tricks and uber-optimization taking it down to a science. I can envision small raiding parties cutting my faction apart throughout ...

I'm bored playing this AI.

Aside from PBEM, are there any good mods out that help the AI with strategy? I'm getting really bored with the same old crap. The last half-dozen games I played were of no challenge at all really. The CSA AI is obsessed with trying to invade West Virginia. Perhaps I should start playing with attriti...

Multiplayer, Historical Stalinism, and Victory Conditions

I've played a dozen or so full campaigns over the years. I also played the original Civil War as well as the one even before that (I believe it was by the company Interactive Magic). I have three main points 1. The main thing that would improve the game the most is a fully-functioning and fluid mult...

Re: A critical error has occurred.

Thanks,

I fixed it. I figured out you were able to back up a turn when loading a game from the load menu. Great feature, thank goodness.

Re: Civil War III

I apologize because I haven't read most of this but if there was a Civil War III I'd highly appreciate a better way to multiplayer than PBEM. The AI limitations are mind-crippling sometimes and it feels empty to play in many games. The only thing the AI is really good at is snatching up my non-comba...

Re: How do I give Athena a shot of adrenaline mid-game?

I've been over that campaign for a while.... how exactly do I find the line for morale for both teams? I'm currently playing a Union campaign and the CSA morale is already down into the 60s and I'd like to wipe some armies out without ruining my campaign.

Re: How do I give Athena a shot of adrenaline mid-game?

Thanks a lot for the advice. I assumed an event was needed to cheat like that. Yes, I was playing as the CSA that time and was only a few turns from winning (I think it's silly the sudden win/loss in 1864, shouldn't there be an election first?). It gets boring stomping armies when there's such a mor...

Re: How do I give Athena a shot of adrenaline mid-game?

Nobody knows how to do this??? I know I've done it before but that was many years ago.

I'm about to win this Campaign, getting bored.

I've spent a solid hour searching these forums and online about editing events to do something like add morale. I've tried a few things and nothing has worked.

How do I give Athena a shot of adrenaline mid-game?

I'm playing USA in the Grand campaign, CSA Morale is down to 61 ---> I'm not trying to purely win I want to have fun too. I'd like to still have plenty of enemy recruits to fight off and I think the best way to do that is to add an event to increase the CSA morale. I've done this before but this was...

I already played a campaign as the U.S., now I'm playing as the C.S.A. I'm a little confused on specific effects of forts. There wasn't much in the manual on them, almo...
