Re: Promoting Leaders

Thanks Gray Fox. Last night I promoted a two star Grant in his role as a corps commander without removing him but later had to move a division commander in an army out of the stack to promote. Guess I will just have to play around with it some more.

Promoting Leaders

To promote a leader do you have to remove him from the stack? I have read the messages about a leader having a promotion, gone to his stack and seen his name flashing, clicked on the promotion button, but nothing seems to happen. Nothing in the manual about it and not a lot on the forums. Old posts ...

Flatboats and Supply Depots

I feel like I created a Supply Depot earlier in the game with a flatboat with 4 elements. I am now in June of 1862 and am trying to use flatboats to make some depots down the Mississippi but it seems no matter what I do the icon for creating flatboats is greyed out. I tried some areas where I had mi...

Re: Activation and Leadership Penalties

So if I am hearing you right, you think it is possible for the effects of inadequate command points coupled with inactive leaders to rise above the 35% limit? In other words one effect might add on to the other? That is how I read it but was not sure.

Thanks for replying.

Re: Activation and Leadership Penalties

Thanks for the reply. I thought that might be the answer. Poor choice of words on my part in regards to units being in command. Should not have been units but stacks.

Again Thanks

Activation and Leadership Penalties

I am having trouble wrapping my head around these two rules. Leadership penalties are shown in the Inspection Panel in the lower right portion of the screen (I think). Inadequately led Units suffer movement and combat penalties (from the manual). I assume this up to a maximum of 35%. Activation pena...

Re: Couple of questions

Again Thanks!!

In our other post you mentioned "locking units" and you mention again here. Is that the act of right clicking on a unit to make the lock icon occur? I thought this was just to prevent units from being merged. Is there something I am missing?

Cannot get a handle on how to repair railroads.

So you use them as support units (like artillery)? Which means if you use assault troops you cannot use artillery?
