I wonder if this is an extreme FOW feature. But I'd say captured guns should be revealed.

As I checked what pieces are used in Petersburg I already saw that not few of them have a too short range. I'm currently looking through my sources and I hope you can delay the release of the final version some days, I'm surely done by Sunday. It would help if some info could be provided for some p...

Although I had pointed it out myself I think the strange 300 fire value in weapon slot l (Multiple Arms) was purposely set so. I found a unit in the "July 30 1864.oob" called "Mine" with just a single men using that weapon slot. That OOB is used only in the scenarios "034 T...

Would it be possible to also standardize the MP for supply wagons across the board?


Sure

BTW, any more comments about ranges, etc...? I need to put out a final version tomorrow, if possible

Thanks, Rich. This all went off when MG Mihalik found the 6lbr values strange, now I'm the one to find them strange because the rifled version now gets a much shorter range than the smooth version, it is currently the artillery with the shortest range what contradicts why it was rifled at all. We h...

Looks like a typo in the I line(42lbr Smoothbore).
It has a fire value of 5 at 10 hexes and 5 at 12 hexes but 6 at 11 hexes, seems strange that the fire value goes up there.


Right, hexes 11 and 12 should be eliminated

Where it is possible for a routing unit to capture a leader, it is not possible to capture a supply wagon, or artillery, excepting the artillery was unscrewed and abandoned. To capture a supply wagon or manned artillery, would require a melee. Routing units cannot melee. Now, if left behind enemy li...

Here are the weapon values. I have compared all the PDTs from all the Designers, Doug, John, Drew and myself. These are the results. They are not necessarily straight up averages, but rather a logically thought out compromise. No doubt they will not please everyone, but if any obvious errors are see...

I have reevaluated the weapons data on the PDTs. They will be included with the new updates coming in a few weeks. They will be incorporated into all the games of the series. I have given the files to Joe, so if he can attach them here, I would welcome comments. I forgot how to attach files on the M...

1. Still to fix is the minor but annoying bug that weapons with a fire value of zero on the first range are not showing up in the in-game PDT screen. Currently the missing weapons are in slot d, e & v in all PDTs, these are all weapons with a fire value of zero on 1 hex. 2. Note sure if the wea...

Yes it is a pity.

Rich, I know nothing about coding so will ask you if changing the snapshot "code" in the NAP series to perform as it does in the ACW series would be a big deal?


If you asking me, I don't know, I would address that in an email to support@johntillersoftware.com

I'm not aware that any 6pdr were build in the late war, what is here are surely modified guns only. Even the ANV send back their 6pdrs to recast them to 12pdr, by the time of Gettysburg there was just a single 6pdr field gun in the ANV left. Problem in my eyes is that the naming does not really ref...
