Re: Are you still playing?

Just started a new Union game this past weekend and played into January '63. Playing with high possibility of locked commanders, what a pain. Next game I'll do possible locked and no Grant :bonk: Lost Ft. Pickens for the first time ever as Union :siffle: That's what happens when you assume and Athen...

Re: McClellan

You recall correctly :) McDowell's stats (2-2-2) are better than McClellan's. I don't ever remember removing McDowell from army command in any game over the years. Took his corps away and left him with little because they were needed for better commanders sure but he's always kept something and been...

So I'm assuming that if he hasn't appeared by MaxDate = 1861/06/30 he isn't appearing at all? If so, why?

Re: new player, can't make legion no campus martius??

In my expansion game playing as Rome I got a surprising and pleasant shock. I had taken over both Italia Superior & Italia Inferior and was preparing to prosecute war against Rhaetia and its client state Insubre (Rhaetia declared it) and had lots of citizen hoplites (city defender bonus) as garr...

Re: new player, can't make legion no campus martius??

I usually try to hold off becoming an empire for as long as possible because of the civil wars, over 250 turns in on my latest game with Rome but its a matter of time before I make the switch, maybe after I consolidate what I am taking from Carthage in southern Spain in the current war. Got my north...

Re: new player, can't make legion no campus martius??

Thanks for those tips, I would never have known about the legion camps or other items. I plan to play as Rome again (and again) until I take over the map, or most of it. Then I'll move on to play as Carthage, Seleucids, et al. My main game is Combat Mission which is very unforgiving of poor practic...

The Campus Martius is a wonder and cannot be built and also is indestructible so you should always be able to build the standard legions in Latium/Rome (can build anywhere in the province if you've made Italia Superior province but they'll show up in Latium regardless of where you might have "r...

AI poor decision choice

Seems the AI doesn't take into account some of the effects of decisions when choosing them. Had the South's morale down to 34 in late August 1863 and a battle during turn resolution dropped it slightly (the battle raised my NM by one) but it had dropped to 23 for the Confederacy (F9 screen) resultin...

Re: Should I stay or should I go ?

You can also turn off "Textures Initialized", it'll be a bit of a slow scroll when the game starts but rapidly picks up scrolling speed and you'll see much fewer crashes.

Re: Noob question (1st of many most likely)

On the F8 screen the first click on the conscripts icon will sort it from zero upward, click again to sort it from highest amount downward. I usually assign the first recruiter to Detroit since that city generates the most conscripts initially, then Boston and New York.

I get the same thing 95% of the time when I start the game, first time it gets to 52% and stops (occasionally a bit more or less), gives an error message and then a box with option to close program. I close it and start it again and it loads fine the 2nd time, every time. :bonk:
