    Unit size

    Thank you for the reply. So, does the AI scale to my overall corps/army size, just the units I bring into battle or some kind of average? I am playing with UI and AI Customizations Mod V1.6 on legendary. I realized that charge cavalry and skirmishers are so much more efficient with this mod that I restarted my CSA campaign introducing sniper and charge cavalry units a lot earlier than before. Nice job on the mod, BTW 👍

    Unit size

    In my first campaign as Union I also used regiments of 2000 in size. But playing as CSA now, I simply cannot maintain this large number due to shortage in both, weapons and men. To reduce cost, I found a way to create 2 star units without spending a single dollar on veterans. When creating a new unit, I give them cheap smoothbore muskets and 2000 men, while my standard unit size is around 1200. I put the rooky regiment in the first line to absorb most damage and get lots of kills. After they have a little more experience, the unit gets good rifles, but I do not replace the lost men. Once the unit size is at 1300, the unit usually got a second star or is at least very close to getting one. Now the question is if there is an impact on the enemy size and experience if I have very inhomogenous unit sizes?

    Battle's Closing Uneven BR

    A solution to get rid of the ganking / counter-ganking with one simple rule and 3 server parameters: Battles stay open for a minimum time for everyone to join (server setting, maybe t_battle_open_min = 2min). After that, the BR balance is checked. Equal battles (BR1/BR2<BR_max_ratio; BR_max_ratio = 0.7) are closed immediately. Unequal battles stay open only for the side with less BR. Repeat the BR balance check for every ship that joins. Battle is closed regardless of BR ratio after a maximum time (server setting, maybe t_battle_open_max = 10min). These parameters could be even region dependent (capital zone, safe zone are defined already), but I would not like that, making things too complicated. Example settings: Gank fest: set t_battle_open_min=2min and t_battle_open_max=2min and battle will be closed after 2min anyway, BR ratio has no effect. A bit of ganking: set BR_max_ratio to 0.2 and t_battle_open_max=3min. That means a battles with BR ratio of 1/5 is considered an equal fight and reinforcements have 1min extra time to balance that out. Eliminate ganking: set t_battle_open_min=1min, BR_max_ratio to 0.9 and extend t_battle_open_max=90min.

    Port Battle Screenshots (New BR)

    Good thing is that underperforming ships are cheaper which is an automatic balancing mechanism for more variety in port battles. Me likes.

    You didn't get the point. You do what you do in game. That's fine. Absolutely no problem with that. But please stop repeating ^this bullshit that spain and particular one player is responsible for what you do.

    WAR of the LOVERS! Spain VS France

    So why did all the U.S. time zone players stop fighting each other and prefer to nightflip now? I am sure you have very good reasons to do endless empty port battles, cause I did that a couple of times unintentionally (the brits sent a 2 ship troll fleet once, the other time they entered in force only to escape 2 min later) and I can tell you it's a most frustrating waste of time.
