General Cordoba disappears

In my campaign General Cordoba will mysteriously disappear after spawning in Frankfurt after a turn or two, this has happened in two campaigns. No battles were fought, he simply vanishes. There is also an event that keeps firing over and over called " Some Spanish troops are sent to Flanders " but i...

Thank you both for the speedy replies. This information is invaluable as I've been playing with the historical supply and attrition options on. This has been a great and challenging game so far. I haven't had the opportunity to plunder much as most areas have been constantly pillaged. Do supply wago...

Questions about depots and supply

Do depots produce supply? Under the description it says + Land Construction capacity, I assume they allow more regiments to be raised in a province and don't produce any supply, can someone clarify this? It would be nice to have more information on supply, I searched the wiki but it seems to be for ...

Adding and editing provinces on the map

Has anyone done this? Is this possible? I would like to add provinces or breakup existing provinces into multiple provinces in Virginia in an attempt to fix the stalemate the eastern theater develops, thanks.

The pre-war Militia system all but ceased to exist when Militia were supplanted by Volunteer regiments that were no longer bound by specific county recruitment in 1861.

This is the problem I have with the game as well, the Eastern front turns into an entrenched stalemate similar to something you would expect in a World War 1 game when in reality the US Civil War was a war of mobility. Trench warfare was a last resort and the armies that were trapped in them were us...

Why I posted this thread in the first place is to figure out if the game is competitive. I don't believe it is. I'm not trying to say it's not a good game (it's great). And I'm not trying to say that people don't enjoy playing the losing side. A lot of people enjoy playing Japan even though it's mo...

I've been away from the game for a bit. Coming back to it. I'm wondering if playing the CSA is much like playing Japan in War in the Pacific? Japan has no hope.

I'm halfway through a campaign and when I click end turn it takes me back to the main menu. I tried restoring the previous turn but it does the same thing.
