AACW patch 1.16 = Official version March 24, 2012

Sat Mar 24, 2012 12:00 pm

After a long, hard road!

New patch:
http://www.ageod-forum.com/showthread.php?24527-AACW-official-patch-1-16a-April-24-2012&p=233550&viewfull=1#post233550




The AGEOD team recognize the enormous number ofvolunteer hours spent improving the Rail network accuracy, additionof new regions to enhance historical play, creation and adaptation ofthe "Kentucky Mods" to give a different "feel" tothe start of the war, numerous other fixes and enhancements byvarious modders to the Database, and public beta testing of newexecutables and changes. Without the efforts of the community, AACWwould not be as complete as it is today. We all know games are neverperfect or can ever be considered as finished, but help andinvolvement of our fan base always leads to a better product, and,once again, THANK YOU ALL!

Lodi,

If we have installed the most recent patch will it be necessary to install this one?

Many thanks.

Done.

I appears that the game now loads faster. Another little benefit on top of so many others :coeurs: .

My thanks and deep appreciation to all of the present and departed beta testers, coordinators, sleuths and other contributors to the official patch.

Outstanding work... the perfect salute to the continued passion and interest for the subject at hand, and the rather brilliant model that captures it. Hats off to Lodi and the volunteers. :hat:

I think, for some, this just might be the gaming Grail at last.

Thanks for posting the data base files!
I'm still having problems generating scenarios. The scenarios generate O.K but the area to start the scenario is off for the Confederates.
Their start point is on the top left of the map. Am I missing something new for scenario generation?

The Union start point seems to be correct.

Very well. Gentlemen, as a tribute to Lodi and the volunteers past and present who have made the game what it is...

...OK, that wasn't quite as beautiful as I'd intended.
It's kinda hard to whistle beautifully when you're giggling, OK?

Hi guys!

I'm translating into Spanish the ACW updates file (1.16 patch and the previous Release candidates) for users who don't speak English. But I wonder what this means:

"Added Cannons [flavor only: Guns per Hit] to French and British ships"

This was added in the RC13b patch. Is it just an ornament inconsequential?

Would you be so kind to answer? Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

Hi Ethan

We noticed that British and French ships and fleets only showed men and not guns with Ctrl key, and also on battle reports, British or French side only showed men, not guns, like they do with USA or CSA fleets.
This was corrected, but had no real effect on the power of the ships, it's just "flavour"

Thank you for the official update.

So I am clear, can I install this patch over 1.15 without any issues?
Or do I need to do a clean install of ACCW?

Hi guys! ;)

As I said some days ago, I'm translating into Spanish the 1.16 update file and I have a question...

Could someone explain what this means? :confused:

• Destruction of RailRoads is no longer automatic:

• A check is made of D100 <{less than} Stack Strength. +25 to stack strength if attribute “*pillage*” is applied to model.



Does this mean a dice roll? Thanks in advance. :thumbsup:

Hi Ethan

I also "translated" D100 with dice roll with 100 faces.....but not 100% sure.

A check is made of D100 <{less than} Stack Strength. +25 to stack strength if attribute “*pillage*” is applied to model.

A die roll is made for 1-100. If the result is less than the Stack Strength (of the unit trying to cut the rail), the rail is cut. Add 25 to the Stack Strength if pillage has occurred. (My best guess!)

So, a cav unit of strength 22 is in a pillaged area and is trying to cut the rails there. Net Stack Strength is 22+25=47. The die is rolled, and if the result is less than 47 the rail is cut.

The pillage applying to the model is referencing the .mdl file. Essentially, if the unit has the pillager ability, it has a +25 to the roll.

I think the mentioned "pillage" attribute is for the unit (like indians) not for the area. In your example I would say the die result must be lower than 22

Thanks guys! That's what I supposed. But then, any stack with a strength greater than 100 will always cut a railroad without problems, right?

Yes. This is the way you can make RR destruction automatic again but it is more costly in unit than in the past. By the way it remains that the destruction is random in time (not necessary on the first day) and you have to stay in the region to be sure to destroy even if stack power is greater than 100.

Using v1.16 playing union in pbm. Early sep 62 turn union signs the emancipation proclamation and gains 999 money. This extra money is a new bonus is it really supposed to happen ? Have tested it the extra money disappears when you remove the proclamation and returns when you sign again. In previous versions the proclamation only helped morale,vp and intervention score. I have a pbm turn available if required.
