Gameplay-related questions to veterans

Wed Mar 02, 2016 9:09 pm

I just finished my first Grand Campaign and I couldn't figure out a few things until the end which also aren't explained in the manual.

1) The Railroad from Port Said to El Arish: I owned all provinces, but I couldn't figure out how to build it (as CP if that matters).

2) Off-map Rebel-Alignment: Great Britain had a Rebel Alignment of 100% for over 2 years but never surrendered. Why is that? That should be 20% chance for over 50 times according to manual or do some special rules apply to GB?

3) Some Tech-related questions:
-Railroad Guns: The description says they are unlocked with Artillery Tech Level 3 but why can I build them from the beginning of the game then?
-Improved Heavy and Light tank units: I couldn't find them anywhere in military recruitment mode after I reached the tech level, are they just an improvement for the tank brigade?
-Also is there no special air unit for CAS? Is it just a new ability for fighters?

4) How many objectives do I need to conquer for a decisive victory? And does the game continue forever after the last turn? I ask because I dominated but only got a minor victory by VP and the game is still playable.

Thanks in advance for replies.

2) AI Great Britain doesn't surrender, as it was found the AI did a poor job of keeping their sea lanes open.
3) - Railroad guns are available from the beginning of game (in very small quantities) Lvl 3 artillery tech unlocks stronger heavy artillery.
- Tech upgrades just upgrade your existing units
4) Decisive victory comes from crushing your opponent's morale to 0

Thank you very much for the answer, but does nobody know how to build that railroad? And can the game be continued forever?

I'm pretty sure you can continue on indefinitely, though I honestly never tried.

I'm not sure on the railroad, this was an event added by the AGEOD team during the expansion pack, I'm not 100% clear how it works. I have a feeling it only applies to the Entente though.

I sort of remember PHILTHIB (the DEV) telling me that it was only a UK specific event, but i may be wrong.
Historically- the English spent a lot of money and time in building and maintaining the railway in Sinai, i also remember reading about them building a huge "Water Pipleline" from the Nile to Palestine though it was not fully completed, it did help in supplying troops in the Sinai.
