  1. I can't speak to the tactical differences between US and EU armies at the time. On the first question, there have been lots of forum posts about this on other boards (a quick google search will reveal dozens) and the quick answer is....there's no way to really know. Numbers of army size from that time are general at best (the Union Army boasts over 600,000 soldiers at the end of the war, but how many of those were actual fighting men is anyone's guess - guessing various European army sizes might be even harder), looking at training vs experience in the various armies is going to be even harder, as is comparing general officer ability, and arguably the easiest thing to compare, technology of weapons, hits a snag when you realize you'd also have to try and figure out what sort of production output a country could reasonably sustain during a prolonged conflict (it seems clear to me that any European country would have to import massive amounts of raw materials to try and keep up with what the Union could produce by war's end). So, this is a question that will never be satisfactorily answered in a way that will ever convince anyone to change their position on it....unless someone makes a mod for this game that lets us sim it out =P
  2. Finished Grand Campaign (UNION)

    Man I'm still in 1862! I need more free time lol.
  3. UG Civil War’s Future

    Ehhhh, not sure we really need a game about the US massacring native people except for a couple times where US troops were vastly outnumbered. That wouldn't make a fun game, IMO, and it would feel a little scummy to me. If you want a war that involves native american units, I think 1812 would be a lot more interesting.
  4. Bug with moving units into earthworks

    Oh my god. Thank you lol.
  5. Bug with moving units into earthworks

    Playing as Union, whenever I try and move a unit into an earthworks fortification (by clicking and dragging the move arrow until the shield is highlighted and the blue dots showing where the unit will go in the earthwork appears), the unit never actually moves into the earthwork and instead just sort of moves to a random position and direction near the earthwork. Am I doing something wrong? How on earth am I supposed to move units into earthworks?
