Apart from what may have gone wrong, a few key elements A - French Intervention: it will start from April 1778 onwards only (even if the alliance is signed in February of that year), roughly with 15% chance (increasing by 5% each month till it reaches 75%).

The only thing that would prevent a move would be to send him out of the "West" territorry. This comes from the fact that G.R.Clark is restricted in its movement to the "West" area only. In the 1776 scenario, G.R.Clark and its units may move anywhere in the West without restrictions, and I did not n...

Thanks for the tips, we'll correct as many as we can. Regarding the abilities naming, keep in mind they also have to be short in order to fit in the graphical environment of the game.
