  1. Shiloh will be up tomorrow. As the last several battles have been, it's a bit of a mess with the highlight of not paying attention and going to day 2. But the results turned out pretty good so can't complain.

    UI and AI Customizations Mod V1.5

    Can you transfer one or both units to a different division to try and split them up? Or just get the duplicated unit into a slot you don't need? Worth trying moving the division to a different corps as well. My initial impression is that this is unlikely to be due to the mod changes. This one has no unit duplication type changes, though even the Rebalance mod does that outside of camp. Based on what you've described it sounds like somehow a unique got duplicated but kept the same identifier. Though that only would explain some of the things you are seeing. If you want to send me a save I can poke around a bit, but best case scenario maybe I can find a way to delete the duplicate.

    UI and AI Customizations Mod V1.5

    I've never seen that in any mod or the base game. Does the unit have the same officer as the one it duplicated from? The same battle history? Any other details you can provide like what happened to the original unit in the battle prior to the duplicate unit appearing? Any other mods you've installed in the past?
  4. We are testing out some higher morale damage changes as well as systems to increase morale while flanked by nearby friendly units and reduce it when nearby friendly units are fleeing. Will be a while before anything is ready though. Potentially also looking at higher experience gain with a much higher cost of veterans.
  5. This config is really more for ease of testing. It does control the numbers of units that can deploy in each battle but it's a bit of a mess behind the scenes for various technical reasons. A lot of smaller deployment numbers are hard coded so not all battles will show changes. killsPerEffectivity = number of kills to gain 1 point of the Effectiveness stat. The others use the same format. Reducing the numbers will result in units leveling faster. Officers level based on stats gained by their units so this will affect them as a by product.
  6. Base game value is 5. I've never tried decimals, unsure if they would work. There is not, this is stored in the assets file. Midway through having mostly colonels is about right for the mod's intended balance. This will vary a bit depending on difficulty(more men to kill to gain xp) and player ability to kill everything available. The closest you can get is changing the xp gain which will have the side effect of increasing officer xp gain. unitModifiers.csv modded values: killsPerEffectivity,350 killsPerMelee,125 movePerStamina,1700 shootPerFirearms,700 timePerMorale,4000 base game values: killsPerEffectivity, 150 killsPerMelee, 25 movePerStamina, 1000 shootPerFirearms, 5 timePerMorale, 1800
  7. These should help. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1398810316 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1396453437
  8. Probably, depending on what the last version that you played was. We reduced the base game speed a while back so the default speed is a little less than half as fast as the base game. A lot of the speed perks got reduced as well. Making frequent use of the fast forward and double fast forward buttons helps until you get more used to it. The gamespeed can also be changed in the configuration files Mod/Rebalance/ConfigFile if you try it out and don't care for it.
  9. I think holding the fort can still work sometimes, but it feels far less consistent and I usually make it to camp in worse shape even if it does work. Going back to the base version of this battle after getting used to the larger unit sizes available in the Rebalance mod was really rough. Being outnumbered 2:1 is much easier to deal with when your units don't start with 600 men.
  10. I still think it might be possible to corral the entire eastern reinforcements into a corner as well. I think more infantry would be needed though, the timing is just to tight to get up to the top edge and then back down to the middle. Definitely way more fun than just waiting out the timer though.
  11. Ambush Convoy: Tips on shifting officers around to maximize their benefits, minor stat optimizations with recruits, and explanation of officer experience gain. Hopefully shown at a more reasonable speed. Losses: 1138(991 of own units) Kills: 7195 Went very aggressive to try and take advantage of the passive AI. Only a partial success, killed all of the northern reinforcements but was unable to wrap up the eastern reinforcements and most of them escaped. Brief discussion of AI routing logic though I need to cover this in more detail at a later point. Stay Alert: Short camp discussion of bonus reinforcement feature and some more officer swapping. Battle is a bit of a mess, but still goes fairly well. Start with a skirmisher screen to block out the enemy cavalry and trap it in the corner, which promptly falls apart when the ghost cavalry bug strikes multiple times. Losses: 2490 Kills: 9252
  12. The closest I think I could get would involve copying the corps commander and renaming him. Same with the supply wagons. Would have to think about possible side effects and benefits to doing anything like that though. Adding new elements into the UI is beyond me at the moment. I might be able to change the message text to indicate it was a division commander. Likely issue is how many characters are displayable, will look into it. Division commanders gain xp based on a percentage of all of the units they command. So if you put them in charge of several units likely to do very well you can speed it up a bit. Honestly in the mod I largely ignore them though, it's worth more to have the better officers doing other things until fairly late in the campaign. I have a long term project to try and make all officers a little more interesting, but my last attempt failed rather spectacularly so it's on hold at the moment. Will see if I ever get it working.
  13. The surrender mod changes definitely greatly reduces the occurrence of units routing through your lines. Regarding division commanders, do you mean you would like them to show up as a controllable unit like the corps commander? If you meant something else can you post a screenshot showing what you are talking about?
  14. Unfortunately this is not possible other than disbanding and recreating the unit. In terms of routing, the games logic is basically run away from the largest concentration of enemy troops. This calculation sometimes determines that behind your lines is the 'safest' area as there is no concept of retreating towards supply lines, headquarters, etc. This does mean that you can largely prevent the issue with troop positioning. If you double up your lines the AI will nearly always try and go a different direction. This can be done with detached skirmishers, artillery, reserves, etc. This is most important when engaging in melee. Once you get used to it and play around it routing through your own lines is very rare.
  15. We do have access to the older versions, but everything between 1.2 and 1.23a has several bugs that can prevent battles from completing. I can send you a link if you want, but if you hit those bugs the only solution is to move to 1.23a. The current version is what I would call a stable release, we're still intending to make significant changes in the future though.
