Re: Things still to fixed(after 1.0.6.1)?

I think CWII has been "finished" for some time. I don't really expect a major patch moving forward. For me, nothing is broken, so go ahead and play. (That said there are tweaks that could be made, but once you go down that road, you ask 50 people and you get 100 answers.) Were you thinking...

Expanding a Fort

So I rarely build forts the old fashioned way (4 guns and 4 supply elements), and I was surprised to see that I couldn't expand a current fort. For clarity, Washington DC, in the April 61 game. You get a fort automatically via an in-game event, but it is only a level 1 fort, which has a an overcrowd...

Re: novice question - destroying infrastructure

As to the original question, land troops can tear up RR tracks, and small settlements can be destroyed, as well as depots. Fleets can't destroy infrastructure, but if you have 4 active ship elements, they can block movement across a river. I suppose you could say that they are shelling the bridges (...

Re: Novice - Corps creation help needed.

I think you need to free up one of the division commanders to be a corps commander. First, stuff everyone into Grant's army stack and re-organize the divisions so that you free up one of your 2 star commanders. Take that loose commander (Lew W for example) and create a new stack with him. When you c...

Re: My opponent is pissed (and i dont blame him)

I checked some saved games. One stack of approximately 5k power had a Zone of Control of 102 and an evasion of 1. Entrenched stacks had a ZOC of over 1000. Either way, even the smaller 102 divided by 1 is 102, which is greater than the MC of 100. So if the rule still works, no retreat possible. Exc...

This seems more like the old bugbear Zone of Control.

How stacks choose where to retreat to when retreating out is pretty clearly descr...

This test is too extreme. You will never find this in a real game. Ewell is leading a corps? I'm going to say the Union stack is Reynolds, just to put a name to it.

Stacks in PP never start battles. I was going to disagree with this but then I decided to do an experiment before I put my foot in my mouth. I went with the Gettysburg battle. Indeed, passive stacks do not start battles, and I was able to get Ewell, passive, into Yankee occupied Carroll MD without ...

Yes definitely worth doing in regions that become rich. Two effects that I know of are that a Rich region produces 50% more supply and units in a Rich region are less subject to epidemics. So Richmond and D.C. would benefit, since large garrisons are present and the would help. This is what i got f...

The point of building the Iron Works from scavenged rail lines is that you then rebuild the rail lines with the initial WS from the IW and you still then have the IW.
