It will be good to have a design team dedicated solely to the ACW engine. I think part of the reason so many of our suggestions fell on deaf ears is that JT was spread too thin covering multiple wars.

Soon, I hope to start playing again, but for now, I have to finish Petersburg

There have been some very interesting recent changes, and yes, a new ACW team does exist. There will be new features, programing, graphics and many other things coming in the near future. As a consequence, Petersburg will take a bit longer than expected, but I'm sure the wait will be worth it.

Hopefully it is a major rewrite of the game engine not just an update. The HPS/JT system is getting really old like me.
Maybe this time we will also get an AI player that isn't pathetic. :D

I would say that is a major code update, with many engine improvements, but don't expect a Bobby Fischer A/I. :lol:

If you can just get the artillery to stop attacking the enemy line while limbered it would be a vast improvement. :D

The pulse is beating a United States of America Red - White - & Blue for the club.

Great thread.
A lot of good posts, suggestions.

I am saving the idea of a "tweak" where lower rated units are not as accurate in their assessment of spotted units, (say an "E" rating has a random chance of missing a Units size of anywhere up to 100, 200, 500%? While an "A" unit would for the most part be pretty accurate).
(Huge, or as Bernie/Donald would say, YUGE fan of artillery batteries having limited ammo - what they can carry - unless they go back/are in range of a supply wagon/point).

I think the idea of subsidizing the costs of upgrading the system is fair.

Anywhose . . . beating, and will add some more comments where appropriate.
