I have BOA + AACW. I'm not really interested in NCP because of the subject. I'm not sure about buying BOA:WIA yet. I'll have to read something that jumps out at me as being a huge improvement over the first. Any AGEOD release will be on my radar as a possible purchase, just depends on subject matter...

By the way, also bear in mind that ships can only bombard in support of a land combat on an adjacent land area... or as a reply to a land unit bombard.
They will not bombard "alone".


Ok, thanks again :hat:

Hi The button is for NOT bombard. You will bombard by default. In any case, the tooltip should confirm this.

Bombard button

My apologies if this is common knowledge, but I haven't played AACW in many months and was wondering if the bombard button is for bombarding or not bombarding as I vaguely remember it being for not bombarding the last time I played? Wondering if this has changed? A quick search didn't turn up recent...

I just got in a quick Shiloh scenario as Union with patch 1.10b and that has to be my best experience with AACW yet. I think it was all due to AI: Improved: the 'Force In Being' algorithm has been improved. The AI will now consider better if remaining in place is not the best 'move'. The scenario fe...

I'll definitely give it another go and will consider purchasing.

Can you explain a little why this makes the game better? You explained the tech details fine, but what does this do to gameplay other than less men in a regiment? What does changing the hits do? An example perhaps? In stock, a battle might play out like this, but with this mod it would play out like...

If there is one thing I'd love to see added to this game, it would be the ability to get estimates on troop numbers of the enemy.

It's on the bottom right. Look for the little cannon balls and the icon to the right of it. Hover your mouse over them and it should tell you the supply and supply that will be used.

Great posts, I love this game too. When you add the supply system on top of the command system, it makes for one great game. The supply system is just abstract enough not to bog you down, but just deep enough to keep you interested. :coeurs:
