Hmmm, admittedly very tempting.

But I think I'll have to "draw a line-in-the-sand" and refuse to cross it.

1390 turns? PLEASE! :shock:

May have to leave this one out of my collection. :(

Hi. I don't think there are any official updates to change the appearance of the map graphics. Are you currently using the original "stock" graphics as come with the game(s)? If you go to the links on the main club page you will find a link to the Old Banshee site ...and there is a map mod...

Sir, do you have an e-mail I can send a game file to? Sorry, cannot find one myself on the ANV site.

Yes, sure.

I will have to exhume my BG disks from their burial chambers and re-install them ...

Did you plan on a 1st or 2nd Bull Run ...or would you prefer Shiloh?

Never, NEVER! Chances are if I've played a scenario before then the benefit of familiarity is unavoidable. But I never bother to scout a new situation beforehand so as to maximise the fog-of-war. Most scenarios are designed as balanced so I don't see the point of figuring out where and when exactly ...

I'm not sure what the reasoning behind the creation of the various defences in-game was but I think there is a real problem with players being able to build trenches or abatis whatever and whenever they like: There would be nothing to stop a defensive minded player from setting a unit to constructin...

I advertised for a Reb opponent to play one of the monster "McDowell arrives" scenarios but I had no responses. I undertook this battle a manuever with me as the Reb side and I think I understand why I had no interest in my original challenge. The Reb Artillery in sections is something I h...

The BIG map I have played on appears in scenarios 61 & 62 and two campaign versions of the same situation. One scenario adds extra Reb Cavalry and one of the campaign scenarios is a Weather version ...all are "what-ifs". The map represents the ground that was covered in more than six w...

Hey Don, Hi. I'm doing ok I think, better than some so thanks for asking. I still have our old game file if you wanted to see that to completion? ...and as I have all 11 civil war titles I can manage any scenario that you may want to try out? 2nd Bull Run on the Antietam disk seems a good match ...t...

If there is dirt, you can dig it. Breastworks=entrenchment. As I understand it then the two things are entirely different? Trenches can be added to a hex in the scenario editor but units have no ability to "dig in" as such and that seems correct in historical terms? They offer a serious d...

A personal house rule that I tend to observe regardless of my opponents habits, then I: 1861 & 1862; Never bother to to build breastworks. 1863; build breastworks only sometimes depending on the scenario. 1864 & 1865; build breastworks freely with any unit. Seems odd to me that a unit can bu...
