There's a thread on here somewhere where you can add your support to a Civil War 3 being made. Look it up and add your signature :)

Re: Portrait mod

Just a note to those with gmail accounts, gmail security probably won't allow me to send an email with the mod file attached. Yahoo & hotmail do work, however :)

Re: Forcepool/unit mod proposal/feedback

It's no big deal. It's just one of those things I've always found irritating, though not so irritating that I won't exploit it on occasion when I want a particular general promoted ;) Regarding your mod; is the size of the regiments an even 600, or are they of variable size as are the currently exis...

Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

I think that by playing both sides what I'm most enjoying is that I'm becoming much more familiar with Union generals and regiments that whose history I'd never delved into too deeply before. That and that I'm seeing what the game really needs and what it really doesn't...

Re: Forcepool/unit mod proposal/feedback

Whatever the case I'm looking forward to trying it. Another thing I'd like corrected is promotions; specifically how they're gained. It strikes me as odd that a general commanding 7,000 men can attack a city/town and destroy a meagre garrison of 400 or so men and easily be promoted for doing so, but...

Re: Forcepool/unit mod proposal/feedback

Can it be modified so that player can change the name of the brigades at their leisure as the game is progressing?
Can a brigade once formed be then disbanded or have more regiments attached to or subtracted from it?

Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

My only concern there is that I assume I'm living in a different time zone to the majority of potential opponents. As such, it might take me 3 years to complete a single game ;)

Re: Forcepool/unit mod proposal/feedback

No rush, mate. I'm pretty eager to give this a spin, however :)

I'm assuming that brigades once formed can then be folded into divisions?
And will those brigades take on historical names?

I hope you're well, my friend :)

Re: Animated Battle Maps

As for the animated battle maps, I was thinking more along the lines of a generic, one size fits all, kinda thing. A purely aesthetic addition to give the game a bit more spit & polish :)

Re: Animated Battle Maps

im realy not sure, what exactly you mean. maybe you could explane it more detailed. Well, when two forces meet to battle it'd cut to an animated battle map (something similar to what is featured in the YouTube video I shared) rather just watching a rather bland and featureless battle meter. I was w...

Re: Animated Battle Maps

I should have specified at the beginning of this post that I meant using these animated battle maps to watch the battle unfold rather than the meter. Not that I have any real issue with the meter, but it is a little bland.

Rather than the play by email system, which seems quite cumbersome to me, was online player vs player never an option here? Could that be done?

Animated Battle Maps

I'm wondering how many of you have seen these animated battle maps featured in the YouTube videos of the American Battlefield trust? Could they somehow be incorporated into a game like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlJUuNny9mc&t=1198s If you haven't seem them then take a gander.

If you want to avoid pbem altogether, try playing both sides. It works; I've done it for years. How do you go about doing that exactly? How does that work?

Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

I'm very hesitant to do PBEM on top of it just being a lousy and slow process. Generally for a game like this I find people to be extremely gamey and use a lot of cheap tricks and uber-optimization taking it down to a science. I can envision small raiding parties cutting my faction apart throughout...

Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

The Union AI has always been very Virginia-centric. It'll build numerous large armies around Washington D.C. while often largely neglecting the other theatres, which in my opinion should be just as engrossing as the 'Virginia theatre'. As I see it, the two biggest problems as the Confederate player ...
