I sent a copy of "Brother Green" to our resident musician. It was sung by a local female singer, and was heart wrenching. It came out in the game all twangy with no emotion. I am hoping to put out the whole CD in some fashion that y'all could access it.

Currently I do not use the "highlight brigade color" option. I only use the Highlight Organization button.

Maybe that will be the next option change for me. I will have to try it out.

Thanks,


I was with you sir. I have been using Brigade Colors on, just for giggles the last week or so and now find myself not switching to the Organization Highlighter near as much as before. I sometimes wish I could change some of those colors though.

Meister Sickbert Suh!

Excellent suggestion. And while they are at it - how about some consistency in the trooper images.

I got all used to the spic and span North Carolina boys in their white cross-straps, then the same image appeared out West.

What I would like to see is boys from the same state go by the same trooper image - no matter what brigade or army they are assigned to.

That way I know who the Alabama boys are and can take special care of them...

Not that I am a fussy goose or anything...

I used specific pics for specific states when I set up Overland. Many times you can pierce the fog of war to find out what brigade is coming at you. Of course, my favorite is representing the heavy artillery regiments that became infantry by showing a guy standing next to a columbiad!
