Another version of Jacob Cox, 'militarised' I originally thought from 1866 ie just after he mustered out, but on paying more attention it may be a little later, they had quite a powerful light in the studios as well.

If CW2 follows AACW you can either promote by jumping from one model to another eg from * to **. For this you need to have 2 distinct models for the same general linked together. There is also an entry in the database for a generic promotion which in AACW allowed you to ugrade the same model to a hi...

Ok I dont have the BRS but I remember from from some of the mod scenarios for AACW that Walker came with some troops then still from the scripted events.
It sounds similar you dont notice until they have their own face :)

Hi
I havent started another one, I tend to do them in bursts when I'm in the mood.
As far as I'm concerned the portraits I've posted are available for anyone to incorporate into the game as they see fit.

I've changed the model files: the generic portraits changed to the portraits above. You only have to do is copy them (and overwrite the existing ones) into your Gamedata\Models directory. One interesting thing: after that I rename my Models.cached file then run the game and it works. After I quit a...

No problem from me here is a more uptodate link https://www.dropbox.com/s/5fumj5maju2eyeo/Graphics.zip?dl=0 with a few more added currently doing GD Wagner. Maybe we should have a thread for portraits so people don't overlap, there's plenty to do :) http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy296/cherkasov...

I think they are locked to make sure Athena keeps enough in DC, I think the event could be converted to AI only which may be better.

Would it make a difference if the event brought the units in as locked divisions? Three or so unspectacular generals like Totten, Casey, Ferry etc could be in command. They would still be locked but not so penalised if attacked but not sure about the overcrowding thing.

My install isn't pristine either, it says 1.04 but I'm playing Tripax's Aintod mod and I had to do some double overwriting to get it to work so its entirely possible that I have a hybrid version which still allows regeneration of the cache files . Certainly appears to be an issue arising from 1.04 S!

I feel the big brigades (after the initial turns and for the 'Elite' brigades) are a bit restrictive and less responsive than smaller brigades. A lot of 2 or 3 element brigades can be combined or dispersed as you wish, a smaller number of large brigades less so.

Where possible I try and have a junior * in my corps, that was an AACW habit I suppose from when there were restrictions on the number of Divisions. Still they do come in handy.

I modded AACW to have larger infantry only brigades which I found slowed down establishing forces ie building divisions. I think the same thing happens in CW2. My thought was that smaller brigades with empty slots would make it easier to start off more divisions because you could raise more of these...
