The variableness provided by the weather rules in this series adds a lot to my gaming experience. Until battlefield smoke finally gets introduced, I feel that adding some smoke/haze effect during the game makes it a bit more realistic than constant 70 hex visibility range. Imagine playing a Chantill...

No, it's the stock OOB's; Jackson.oob in this case although there may be others in this release. I'll send a note to JTS support, although my post was mainly to spark a discussion as to why this surfaced only after 11 years on the market. Anyway I fixed it for myself by modifying the graphics file. ...

See the empty base in the screenie below. I believe the cause is that the OOB file has the 12lbr Howitzer units calling for the graphic on Line 22 of the 3D image file, and the file only goes to Line 20 (0 being the first line). It should be referencing Line 1 I believe. The fact that this glitch st...

Yes, good point, especially now with the JTS switchover from HPS. I'll try to get around to doing this.

Thanks for the extended explanation. My intent was to make the installation as simple as possible, meaning all you have to do is download the file and "extract to" (usually an option when you drag and drop a zip file) the "HPS Simulations" folder. I see now that the "HPS Sim...

I would buy more JT Civil War games if they had a sale once in a while. Or once ever. I enjoyed the JT/HPS series in the past but I play SOW far more often for my CW fix because it has a pretty good scripted AI, is enjoyable to look at, and you can pick it up rather cheaply if you wait for the sales...

"High Hopes" with the killer Gilmore slide guitar at the end... yes!

1. Increased exposure to leader being killed for being mounted.
2. Regiment soldier graphics proportional to actual number of men. (we could do this now but it would take a while to do.)

I didn't know what to use here really. Now that you mention it though, maybe using "(night rules)" would be a good idea.

In the weather scenarios I did for Old Banshee, daylight is increased gradually from 1 hex (night) then 2, then 3 and finally 4 hexes and continues gradually through sunrise and morning mists until full 70 hex visibility around 9-10 AM. Afternoon to evening is the opposite. hazy afternoons lead to g...

Sure, you just add the information at the end of the weather string in the pdt file and it will display it.

But it is possible what Joe describes. And you could in fact add weather effects that then make it impossible during historically rainy weather.

I fear that you would alter the balance of many scenarios though.

With the Banshee weather mods, you will get this information in the bottom information line, whenever a modification applies:

The Mills Springs weather scenarios have reduced visibility, movement, and combat throughout the turns. This is WAD, I believe. What is happening is the scenario uses the last weather entry prior to the current date from the pdt file, from November 7, 1861: 1 1861 11 7 15 20 52 20 110 95 -10 0 Clear...
