Would like to see a Civil War Newsletter for every battle pop up for realism

Need to show the Division Commander as a Corps General unit so that i can keep him alive or know what brigade he's with.

Division Commander's should have combat bonuses as well.

Brigade cap at 2600.

Custom battles within the campaign as a what if scenario.

Defensive custom battles for CSA and Offensive for Union.

Would like to see naval battles.

Detach brigades into five regiments if in a tight spot or able to deploy skirmishers (x3).

Able to dispatch all five Corps if available.

Unit detail.

Able to nickname Divisions.

Artillery and Sharpshooters need more damage.

It would be nice if you can get a few more special brigades like the "Iron Brigade." and the one cav unit you can get.  Maybe them historic leaders/units of that battle you can get and keep.   I normally have my own theme for each unit and corps, but would be nice if we got special ones to fill the rank every other major battles.

Oh I like that idea - reminds me of Hitman Blood Money. Little bit of immersion added and it could be easily done - I am sure some of the playerbase would pitch in if Dartis lacks the time to engage in that.

I would pay/donate if they could give us the Division Commander as a leader unit instead of being attached to a random brigade(example: John B. Hood was killed and the only unit who was taking hits was the 5th Brigade) and the Newsletter, give me a price.

I do not want to manage upwards of 20 tiny Corps Commanders. :P

You already manage Corps Commanders.  He's talking Division and Brigade commanders. ;)

Yes, I know semantics.  And I am sure you knew this. Your not wanting it doesn't negate those who do. But then those who do probably tend to play more realistically.

More realistically or not, it's going to be impossible to manage 20 miniature versions of Corps Commanders (the Division commanders) in addition to the Corps Commanders.  I don't want to think of the mess that attacking Antietam as the Union would fall into.  Hell, half the time I already forget about a Corps Commander sometimes, and they're left behind as the battle moves on.

It's not about realism or me not liking more realism, it's about practicality.  With the current system, it just wouldn't be enjoyable or fun, at that point.  Unless other functionality to aid the micromanagement were added (like how British officers in CoH1 could Follow a squad), I don't want this.

I'd like a Rep bonus for inflicting casualties- say 1 Rep for every 500 casualties.  It would provide incentive to go after the AI army along with the geographical objectives.

For Division commanders, instead of having them as individual units, how about assigning them to brigades?  Have an modified icon that shows a flag or star or something similar.  I'd like to be able to have individualized icons also- like the Corps symbols the Union used (diamonds, clubs, etc in red, white or blue) or State outlines.

I agree, I would LOVE to see more historical generals available for purchase or with reputation points. 

The newsletter idea is actually pretty awesome, never thought of that -- could even read Harpers Weekly...

@Hardcase726

A lot of the officers you listed, we can get.  Cleburne, Sickles, Butler, Pope, Thomas and Rosecranz are all generals I think I've gotten at some point, either as a buyable from the Government or from the Academy.

Good suggestions for an old fish-eyed fool. :P

How are Lamont and Aunt Esther these days? 

Color Coded Corps Symbols for Corps/division assignments I've been working for since day 1.

Yep a bit like for naval games where a specific symbol shows the ship where the Task Force leader is. It would basically be a Brigade with a slightly different flag that would have say 5 morale bonus or so.

Would love the newsletter idea. Wouldn't be too difficult... you'd just need some kind of blank space to replace the casualties and losses figures... as well as equipment gained, enemy generals killed... maybe something praising the brigade/division that got the most kills.

You actually want Butler? Grant and Lincoln sure didnt. I'd add Sherman (as a reward for Victory at Shiloh, possibly), Meade (for Gettysburg) and Sheridan (ideally from Cedar Creek, Trevilian Station or Third Winchester if they're ever added).

Careful on the color coded corps symbols as the Union army didn't adopt them till after 1863.  :)

Good information I will file under "who cares"!!!! :D

We need them right out of the box. 

Please

Thank You

Sadly, I know not.  But Gatling Guns would be awesome.

Color coded units on the battlefield based on what Corps or maybe Division they belonged to might be nice.
