    UGCW Feedback v1.0+

    The color of the lines showing firing range still annoys me. It's way too dar for me at times (especially at morning/evening battles). I would really appreciate it, if the color could be tweaked a bit or give us an option to select our prefered color. Also some thing I would still like to see in the future: - add more accurate looking Lutheran Seminary building (Gettysburg map) - add Cemetery gatehouse (Gettysburg map) - add more accurate looking Dunker Church (Antietam map) - add non campaign versions of battles of Washington & Richmond (custom battles) - add option to change players avatar/General's portrait - add more historical accurate portraits of historical Generals (instead of placeholder images) - fix double General Gibbon reward in campaign - Officers level up way too fast during campaign. after sometime you have way too many Major Generals. It should be rebalanced a bit, so you will have less Major Generals.

    Change Your General's Avatar

    Yes. I would like to change my avatar too. Would make the campaign a bit more unique and personal. Also I'm still hoping for more historical acurate portraits of famous historical Generals to be added too. Placeholder images are okay, but more accurate portaits would be a nice little addition.

    First of all: Congratulations to the release of version 1.0 of the game! Though, personally I'm wondering why version 1.0 doesn't inlcude any fixes/additions compared to 0.97. The game is in a great state and doesn't need too many improvements but I was hoping to see some small graphical improvements/eye candy added before final release. Some things I still want to see added/improved: - Please improve color of lines showing firing range! They are too hard to see at times (especially at morning/evening)! Or let us select prefered color! - Fix US General John Gibbon being available twice during a campaign - Please let us choose an avatar/portrait pic for our own General. The generic pic is okay, but I would like to choose a different pic - Please add more historical accurate portraits of historical Generals! It bugs me a bit that famous well know Generals are only depicted with generic pics! - Please change Lutheran Seminary building (Gettysburg map) and Dunker Church (Antietam map) to more historical accuarte looking buidlings! - Please add Cemetary gatehouse to Gettysburg map - Please let us zoom in a little bit closer to the battlefield!
  4. I remember in "Sid Meier's Gettysburg" the game would play "Battle Hymn of the Republic" when the Union won a battle/Scenario and "Dixie" when the South won. Something like this would be a nice little addition to UGCW too and add a bit more flavor and immersion to the game. The generic music at the battle results screen is okay, but some "real" Civil War music would be nice addition IMO. For example you can see here at around 4:50 what i'm talking about, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3x1OForjZk

    Double US General John Gibbon

    lol I mean having great Generals twice is not a bad thing, but it surely is weird and ahistorical, unless he had a secret twin I'm not aware of. But honestly: It doesn't make any sense to get him twice. Neither from a gameplay point of view nor from a historical point of view . I would like to see it fixed with one of the final patches before full release of the game.
  6. So, apparently you get US General John Gibbon twice during the campaign. Once purchaseable with reputation points and once as a reward with the Iron Brigade. As I assume it's probably a bug/error (and really weird to have him twice during a campaign) I suggest to replace the purchaseable John Gibbon with a different historical US General and only have Gibbon as a reward with Iron Brigade.

    Nice new update. The game is looking better and better but I'm still hoping for a few small things to be added/changed before release: - Please change color of lines showing firing range! [or give us an option to select prefered color ]. Those lines are so hard to see at times right now. - add more historical accurate portraits of historical Generals - give us an option to change portrait of "our" General we create at the beginning of the game - let us zoom in a little bit closer to the battle - replace current Dunker Church (Antietam map) & Lutheran Seminary building (Gettysburg map) with more accurate buildings. - add non campaign versions [as historical or custom battles] of the "Battle of Washington", "Battle of Richmond", "Batlle of Wilderness" and "Battle of Spotsylvania"

    Teleporting CS cavalry during battle of Shiloh

    Please read what I wrote above: The unit switched position right at the moment the phase changed (within 1 second of gameplay). There was no time for the unit to move around my lines in 1 second. It was the exact same unit (jenkins cavalry). It disappearerd south of my lines only to show up north of my lines. I could see the unit disappearing south and reappeaing north. I saw it changing position. It was NOT that i lost track of the unit and it showed up two minutes later. It was literally "transported" to a new position on the map within a second of gameplay. Unfortunately I don't have an exact screenshot of this situation, but when I replayed Shiloh I took a screenshot at the same phase to better illustrate my issue. Blue circle indicates jenkins' position at the end of the hornet's nest phase, red circle his new position right at the beginning of the next phase. It just happend within a few seconds of gameplay, during the phase switch. There was no way for him to break through my lines or turn around my lines.

    Teleporting CS cavalry during battle of Shiloh

    Yes. 100% sure. They were south of my lines the second the phase ended and north of my lines the moment the next phase continued.

    Teleporting CS cavalry during battle of Shiloh

    No. They DID NOT get trough my lines. They were south of my lines attacking an artillery battery the moment before the next phase started and with the start of the next phase they were telported to north of my lines. Unfortunately I don't have screenshots of before and after it happened, but I could actually see them being teleported between the phases. They just appeared all of a sudden north of my lines. There was no way for them to break through my lines and appear north of my lines in 1 second of gameplay. It's clearly a bug. I had a game were they flanked my lines and captured the VP but this time they were clearly teleported from the south to end of my line to the north end of my line.
  11. I played the Battle of Shiloh as the union (campaign version). During the „Hornet’s Nest phase“ of the first day, Jenkins CS cavalry attacked one of my artillery batteries positioned at the Hornet’s Nest. Then the next phase of the battle started (where you have to retreat to Pittsburg Landing) and all of a sudden Jenkins CS cavalry was teleported to north of my lines, almost directly to the Pittsburg Landing victory point! I reported this issue in game already, but I just wanted to bring this to attention. I hope the devs are aware of this and it will be fixed soon.

    Proper Placeholders for Generals?

    OP is right. Many historical Generals still have random placeholder portraits in the game in version 0.90 of the game. Most of the Generals who were in UG: Gettysburg are depicted with accurate portraits, most of the other Generals are not. Grant does not have an accuarte portrait atm, just a placeholder pic resembling him a bit. I hope there will be more accurate portraits of historical Generals for version 1.0 of the game, at least for the more well known like TJ Jackson, US Grant, William Sherman, Ambrose Burnside, Joseph Hooker, George B McClellan, AS Johnston and more. Also would like to see an option to select a portrait for our own General (player character)

    "Skirmish Mode" Button PLEASE!

    I support this. Would help a lot with skirmishers IMO.

    In the battle of Gaines Mill CS General A.P. Hill is depicted with the wrong portrait picture too. His historical picture is in the game, but in this battle he is depicted with a random placeholder pic, which doesn't look like him at all. Still hoping they will add more accurate portraits of historical Generals for version 1.0 of the game instead of placeholder images (at least for the more famous ones like T.J. Jackson, A.S. Johnston, Joseph E. Johnston, U.S. Grant, William Sherman, Jospeh Hooker, Ambrose Burnside, George B. McClellan, etc.)
