I would buy more JT Civil War games if they had a sale once in a while. Or once ever. I enjoyed the JT/HPS series in the past but I play SOW far more often for my CW fix because it has a pretty good scripted AI, is enjoyable to look at, and you can pick it up rather cheaply if you wait for the sales...

"High Hopes" with the killer Gilmore slide guitar at the end... yes!

1. Increased exposure to leader being killed for being mounted.
2. Regiment soldier graphics proportional to actual number of men. (we could do this now but it would take a while to do.)

I didn't know what to use here really. Now that you mention it though, maybe using "(night rules)" would be a good idea.

In the weather scenarios I did for Old Banshee, daylight is increased gradually from 1 hex (night) then 2, then 3 and finally 4 hexes and continues gradually through sunrise and morning mists until full 70 hex visibility around 9-10 AM. Afternoon to evening is the opposite. hazy afternoons lead to g...

Sure, you just add the information at the end of the weather string in the pdt file and it will display it.

But it is possible what Joe describes. And you could in fact add weather effects that then make it impossible during historically rainy weather.

I fear that you would alter the balance of many scenarios though.

Cleaned up the spinach spew, and those messed-up stock ford graphics:

With the Banshee weather mods, you will get this information in the bottom information line, whenever a modification applies:

The Mills Springs weather scenarios have reduced visibility, movement, and combat throughout the turns. This is WAD, I believe. What is happening is the scenario uses the last weather entry prior to the current date from the pdt file, from November 7, 1861: 1 1861 11 7 15 20 52 20 110 95 -10 0 Clear...

Not the blues legend, but a new mod for water hexes I'm working on to accompany the soon to be released Old Banshee weather variants for Campaign Peninsula. The stark blue river graphic is replaced by a murkier one: Swollen by heavy spring rains, the otherwise lazy Chickahominy River became a signif...

You will need a graphics editor like "MSPaint" or "Snagit" or something like that to "paste" the Banshee bitmaps over a corresponding line in the stock ones. A bit cumbersome indeed but we (the Banshee team) hope to expand on this a bit more to provide a complete 3dunit...

Sir, I sent you a personal message with my email address to contact me for a game, in lieu of posting my email on the forum for security purposes.

It should be in your inbox. :)

We had a discussion on this mod a while back : http://wargame.ch/board/acwgc/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17685&hilit=empire I installed it and played it for a bit - it looked great but the maps and atmosphere was too dark and gloomy for me, artillery was murderous and the campaign didn't make much h...
