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

- Generals entering the game at historically accurate dates. Some should be coming in way sooner; others way later. - Realistic marching times between regions. - More regions. - Wounding of commanding officers should be an option. Severity of wounds and recovery time required could and should vary.

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

I'm not sure I'd want to do away with the seniority system as it was a big deal at the time. I just think it needs to be approached somewhat differently. Perhaps, as a start, it could be theatre relative, and what I mean by that is that it shouldn't bother Sterling Price in Buffalo, Missouri if D.H....

While I'm at, the generals should gain experience with each battle they've participated in just like the troops they're commanding. How much experience they gain might perhaps be relative to how they've performed during that battle, and/or how large a scale battle it was.

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

For me, two improvements that might be made that would massively improve this game are shorter turns, ideally 3-5 days, and much shorter marching times between regions. I can get behind complications, delays, etc, moving to and fro in mud or snow, but in perfect weather it shouldn't be taking 6 or 7...

I always get a little concerned when I hear someone say 'That's not historic.' As if every new idea should be excluded simply because just isn't historically accurate.

Re: mod leader model and save game

The inability to promote McCulloch has been a consistent issue among players, as it should be. I'm personally of the school of thought that all generals within the game should be promotable. If they've enjoyed success after success after success then it barely makes any sense to not be able to promo...

Does the Emancipation Proclamation event require certain conditions before it triggers? Am I correct in thinking that without a significant Union victory in November/December 1862 it doesn't happen?

Re: Confederate Generals in Arkansas & Missouri

I do refer to the April 1861 campaign, and for me, the Arkansas/Missouri theatre feels particularly underdone & afterthought-ish. I just think it'd add a great deal to this region if we saw the likes of Cabell, Govan, McIntosh, McNair, Pike, Reynolds, Cockrell, etc, etc, pop up here and there.
