0.1 would mean not even a half casualty for a 6 gun battery. The lowest value currently used is 0.25 and that gives at least 1.125 casualties, I think that should be the bottom line. Then there is the problem of ADF. Do you really want the choice to be essentially 4 hexes or max range with a chance...

The researched ranges have no impact on the organization of the batteries, but it's up to the player how to employ them. Besides this there were also uniform batteries, likely more common in the Union but nonetheless. That rifled pieces were deployed side by side with smoothbores is no reason to so...

We have to assure that rifled artillery is used in counter battery fire and fire beyond the main battle line and beyond the first line of a siege or the players will relegate them to act side by side with napoleons and other short range smooth bores in defending against assaults or trying to soften...

Although I had pointed it out myself I think the strange 300 fire value in weapon slot l (Multiple Arms) was purposely set so. I found a unit in the "July 30 1864.oob" called "Mine" with just a single men using that weapon slot. That OOB is used only in the scenarios "034 T...

Thanks again, Rich!

Can't testify to the overall values, but at least the ratios seem to be reasonable.

Hard to determine accurate values when you have two different systems (turn and phase) as well as extrapolation for fire over twenty minutes, but I'm satisfied.

I have reevaluated the weapons data on the PDTs. They will be included with the new updates coming in a few weeks. They will be incorporated into all the games of the series. I have given the files to Joe, so if he can attach them here, I would welcome comments. I forgot how to attach files on the ...

Thanks muchly for taking the time to post this AAR! In olden days when Talonsoft was king a few series replays were posted, but the turns were uploaded. Both players commented and an observer posted neutral commentary. Don't know which way is better, but any way is better than no way. Thanks again ...

Hi,

I had an occasion where a routing unit in a Vicksburg scenario even captured my limbered artillery.

I thought they fixed all that with a patch a long time ago. I certainly haven't seen it since.

Hi, General, First, I'm really sorry about your wife! I have known folks with dementia and I have seen how painful and draining it can be on those who love and care for them. I use Avast so I am unaware of any problems caused by Norton. I got the latest updates by sending a digital photo of all my d...

Hi, Joe,

I used to think the computer picked on the top unit in the stack most often. Now I am not sure.

I play phase, so each stack gets one shot. Don't remember how it works using turn op fire.

Miss the days when each unit would fire individually in ADF, even though that meant a longer replay.

I'm not aware that any 6pdr were build in the late war, what is here are surely modified guns only. Even the ANV send back their 6pdrs to recast them to 12pdr, by the time of Gettysburg there was just a single 6pdr field gun in the ANV left. Problem in my eyes is that the naming does not really ref...

From the User Manual. "Each unit of strength of a Supply Wagon represents enough ammunition to resupply 10 men." So a 30 point wagon can provide ammo for a 300 man unit. You are right of course. But I don't think two wagons can combine to resupply a single unit. PS: I am glad you are stil...
