Don't know about the terrain in reality... I do live some 250km away from Mühlhausen and have been there, but I didn't really think about its defensiveness back then :thumbsup: In the game though, it seems to me that the Mühlhausen-Colmar-Straßburg route is by far the easiest to force for the French...

If the Germans choose to go East first, then this gap is definitely the best choice for the French advance. Straßburg is flat terrain, so once you managed to secure Mühlhausen and that other province before it, you can use your superior numbers. And once Straßburg falls, the Germans are in a very to...

Well, the manual says that the highest-ranked leader with most seniority is treated as CiC, no mention of if he is under GHQ command or not. Of course, AGEOD manuals are not always 100 % correct... Frankly, I have no idea how you could even tell if someone is CiC or not? Are the values of generals u...

But even if we assume the Germans make huge and strategically important gains, do you think the Entente would have just made peace? Honest question, I know nothing about that.

A Russia-first plan has some advantages, most importantly the narrow border compared to the huge Russian frontier. On the other hand, it also has many disadvantages, in my opinion way more than advantages... the Western Entente could NEVER be delayed sufficiently with the same amount of forces the G...

If the Germans have a high hide value, can't the Britains simply take the East Africa city and the Germans will not get any more supplies? Or does a hidden force block taking cities?

Will historical forces lead to a historical campaign though? I mean, the German East Africa garrison was always less than 20000 soldiers. At the outbreak of the war, less than 3000. In game, Lettow-Vorbeck starts with 26000 (and can't recruit more, so it's really quite abstracted)! And even now, eve...

Don't forget that he is talking about the AI here. Any half-competent player can simply leave and or ship enough troops to South Africa. I suppose the starting garrison there may be defeated by Lettow-Vorbeck, but just barely. But you can just ship some troops there and it will be 100 % safe. Or rec...

100 % agree. The old interface is way easier and better to use. There are a lot of very questionable UI changes in CW2 and TEAW. They mostly involve repositioning of buttons so that you need more clicks and more mouse movement.

It's just such a weird change I think.

The same is true for the map overlay selection.

Sibley is almost unwinnable for the CSA but is still a very cool scenario.

Yeah, that would be a great expansion pac...

Even if the Mexican army has to be made more organized than it really was, I still think this would make for a great DLC for this game. Especially, as pgr said, as the map is already fully there!

I know nothing about modding, so can not answer your actual question.
However, if you want to force the war plans for your own games agaist the AI you can just load the first turn as each of the three factions, select the war plans and save the turn.
