This is helpful, but still leaves open the question of why the Russians set up in the later start campaign scenarios has them with a depot chain through Polish areas that they are prohibited from building in in the 1756 start campaign. If it is intended to simulate the Russian supply situation by fo...

It is a good point. I am more and more heading toward making a mod for ROP, and this is added to the list. This is after my mod for WiA, though :) The one I procrastinated. The battle model has been reviewed lately, as the battles used to be too bloody for the historical period. I have not seen the...

As I rarely play the Russians, I cannot help. I believe the Polish cities give supply willingly if you stop an army there, and supplies go through Polish territory, so you need a depot before and after. It is still quite difficult, I understand. This is only possible in one case : both players are ...

Russian Supply and Super Long Battle Questions

Hi - My brother and I were doing the 1756-1763 campaign and ran into two issues we wanted to raise here and see what people thought. First - we have noticed that the Russian Army as it advances from initially taking Konigsberg from the Prussians, cannot build depots along the way in neutral Polish t...

Hmmm, I can only answer with the following quote from a post in another thread made this same day: Maybe you could consult elxaime for some play tips? :) There is luck involved of course, in terms of the cotton embargo and blockade rolls. But the CSA, in PBEM, should usually hold an early lead in b...

Oops, sorry I had revised my post before you answered the question I took out! :) Yes, the only mod I have seen is SVF. Apparently then, a lot of people were talking big about making mods but blowing smoke, resulting in the worst of two worlds: halt in updates to accomodate non-existent mods. :blink:

Holding back

I like the SYW era, but have held off purchasing ROP mainly because I am afraid it will follow the well-worn path of ACW, another potentially great game that misses due to neglect of the PBEM side of things. Although a lot of players fight the AI only, there are also a lot of us that PBEM exclusivel...

Naval Guns and Defense

If you have a fleet set to bombard, it is supposed to assist friendly units in the area. Some questions: 1. If the fleet is in a port in the same area as your friendly defenders, and is set to defend and bombard, will it aid the defense? Or does it have to be at sea/in the adjacent river? 2. Does a ...

...the bombardment itself is perfectly legitimate and at the control of the player who owns the land units. He has the choice to bombard or NOT to bombard adjacent naval units. Just to confirm, we are playing with 1.15, no mods. And this involves USA blockade ships that are not running the guns, no...

These are ports whose protective forts I have already captured - every turn it seems, the CSA forces garrisoning the population centers bombard the Union blockade naval units. They typica...

More NM weirdness

In a PBEM game as Union we just had a big battle for Washington DC in June 1862, which the CSA lost although the USA had a few more losses (heavy losses on both sides). The USA started the turn with 97 NM and the CSA 116. The message log says the USA gained +4 morale from winning the battle of Washi...

Ah, I had completely forgotten about that. I have been selling only 5 percent bonds and printing money, so inflation is up to 30 percent now (April 1862) - next go around I will explore that.

Two quick questions. 1. War Supplies and Money - I played ACW way back before may of the patches and am returning to it now. I have always understood that war supplies do not accumulate from turn to turn - you have to use them that turn and any remaining unused stockpile disappears. Is this correct?...

Nope

These were all newly built support units. I waited until they were fully trained before railing them to join their respective armies. They were around for a turn or so, then poof, 8 of the 9 were gone without a trace. None had been in the red. I first played ACW a couple of years ago then left off P...

Thoughts

The best way to get your fleet up and sailing is to spread your damaged ships around. If you are the British, New York, even though it is a big port, often has a large British garrison and they compete for supply. Send your most damaged ships to Halifax and you will be amazed at how quickly they are...
