Hi Chris - the right wing is the 11th Corps, so C and D quality. Here is the Gettysburg area (notice the red arrows! Got 'em on the screenshot): https://i.imgur.com/4WCW4ZF.png Here is the Little Round Top area: https://i.imgur.com/Uvs85oh.png Phase 1 of my kitchen renovation is complete. I'm trying...

OK, the game got interrupted because of my kitchen renovation, but I just sent off a turn to Mark. I've got a couple of screenshots I'm going to post, but I'm pretty much done for the night...

Thanks, Walt. Turn 31 of 156 finds the CSA closing in on Cemetery Hill. I think that Mark has figured out that there are no troops between Cemetery Hill and Little Round Top. He's advancing at Wolf Hill (I had to look that up) and from the Peach Orchard. I'm pulling the 11th Corps artillery back, bu...

Thanks for responding, Mike. I don't have an eidetic memory, but from playing before, I think that the night movement penalty is 50. That brings up another issue I've been meaning to ask about. Where is the parameter data file (what is it named, where is it located, etc.)? The online manual provides...

Walt - we are playing Historical 1 with fog of war, manual defensive fire off, and rout limiting off. Turn 30 of 156 finds a general collapse of the right wing, with six guns of the 1st Ohio Light artillery captured. Here is a beginning of turn image, with the hexsides off: https://i.imgur.com/009Xa...

It's turn 29 of 156 and I remembered to get a start of turn image of Smith's brigade routing from Culp's Hill. However, I forgot to turn hexsides off. You can see Williams Division has arrived and will deploy to try to take Culp's Hill. https://i.imgur.com/UfKvdbp.png Huzzah! My artillery shot up 2 ...

It's turn 28 of 156, or 4PM, and Humphreys and Geary arrive with their divisions. Previously I mistakenly said they were arriving earlier, I misremembered the timeline - even though it was right in front of me. Slocum is deploying near Culp's Hill. Reynolds' guard company was posted to the right of ...

Turn 26 of 156 (320PM) finds 12th Corps artillery reinforcements arriving at the Emmitsburg Road. Both Sickles and Slocum will be at the 'line' in about an hour (more -and- less). Humphreys division from 3rd Corps and Geary's division from 12th Corps are scheduled to arrive next turn. I think that b...

Turn 25 of 156 finds all the remaining officers alive, so at least there's that. It looks like a race to prevent a double envelopment - Slocum is racing to Culp's Hill and Sickles to the Peach Orchard. Here's an end of turn image of the fortress: https://i.imgur.com/IIZV5lR.png When Slocum occupies ...

I've got another issue - it's somewhat of a pet peeve of mine - I can't always tell if I've built breastworks in a hex, especially the top / north side of a hex. I can zoom to 3D and it doesn't help. There's no way to rotate the screen as far as I know, or have the breastworks show up on the hex ter...

Turn 24 of 156 finds Orland Smith killed leading his men in demonstration against the CSA left. The maneuver was successful, in that the rest of the 11th Corps repositioned without interference and the artillery relocated. Slocum is close enough that I think he'll be able to occupy Culp's Hill just ...

Turn 23 of 156 finds Buford killed (9 points) and replaced by Devin. The artillery evacuated the Peach Orchard, followed by the cavalry. Fortunately, the artillery found safety with Stone's brigade and will deploy at Little Round Top. Cutler's regiment on Emmitsburg Road is not going to be enough to...

It's turn 22 of 156, or 2PM of day 1. Here's an end of turn map of the 'fortress': https://i.imgur.com/Se7sl6U.png Williams division of Slocum's 12th Corps arrived at the Baltimore Pike, and will take about two hours to reach the battlefield. It's getting hot at the Peach Orchard. Calef's guns are u...

Walt - that concentration is I Corps (-), which is fixed at game start. I opened up a new historical1 game to check, and they are there... It's turn 21 of 156 or 1340. The suspense is building - the Rebs have emerged from the woods north of the Peach Orchard, with at least two brigades (I expect a f...

Turn 20 of 156. The 11th Corps is still settling in and the guns are coming up. Stannard arrived at Emmitsburg Road, so Doubleday's division is complete. Doubleday and his division will join up at the Peach Orchard - I'm committing my reserve to meet the new threat. Gamble and Doubleday will have to...
