Cities That Look Like Countries

If you take a close look at the shape of the capital cities of Great Britain, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Italy, and (maybe) France, you'll notice something interesting as regards their shape...

I can't be the first to have noticed this. ;)

Well, when they become empty somewhere in the front, you need to turn them back to home depots to get refills. :) Having only played the artillery-deficient EE I can't speak to those factions which have plenty, but I've never seen an ammo supply unit low, and I've only built three ammo factories. I...

I believe the utility of munitions supply units is sort of as a mobile depot, in the same way one would use a regular supply unit. That is to say that it pulls ammo in the supply distibution phase. Because ammo is less abundant than supply, this pull can be quite important, particularly where long s...

Templer, given how much of what is in AGEOD games is abstract (and indeed in all games to a greater or lesser extent), I think not showing barbed wire and MGs is forgivable. If you really like, I'm sure you could find some clever modder who knows how to change the entrenchment graphic to show some b...

Loyalty Regional Decisions

Playing as the Nationalists I have two regional decisions I can play which purport to affect loyalty in a region. Of the two, one seems objectively better taking place over the course of one turn rather than three, and increasing loyalty by 25% rather than 10% (if memory serves). My problem with the...

WSU Issues as Nationalists

I'm not very far into the game, still in fall 1936, but I'm having severe issues generating enough WSU to cover the needs of the Nationalist army. I've yet to build any units beyond the options deploying African forces, and I don't imagine myself doing so anytime soon given the WSU constraint. I can...

I forgot to mention supply depots, because I did not use any! The supply situation can probably be alleviated especially in Spain by building depots, which may reduce the amount of shuttling of supply wagons that is necessary to keep Anthony in supply. However it is unclear to me what happens if th...

It was the pre-order version, but I patched it so it should be fine. It's locked on the second turn, not the first. If I reinstall, will it preserve my saves?

Septimus Severus Scenario Locked?

I started the Septimus Severus Scenario up recently, and after choosing the Pescenian faction and advancing to the second turn, a message tells me that the scenario is locked and the next turn button does not work. Is the scenario not finished yet or is it a bug?

Will RoP work on my laptop?

Rather than engage in a debate about whether my laptop is up to the task based on hardware, I ask instead if someone might compare RoP to other games in terms of performance on their machine. In other words, on a continuum of Ageod games based on hardware intensiveness, where does RoP fit? My laptop...

Plus the extra detection value. This is why I do it. I just recently found out about the screening bonus, which is great. A good rule for including support units into divisions is to include them when their ability(s) apply only to a 'unit' (read: division) rather than a stack. For example, includi...

I can't figure out how to do it. I'm about 8 turns in as the CSA and the option is still greyed out whenever I select an active 1 or 2 star general. I read the wiki and the FAQ and I can't understand why it won't let me. I've applied the v1.15 patch, and one theory I've been considering is that the ...
