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.

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.

Respectfully
