I just came across another issue with artillery during a battle in Overland v4.02. For some reason the VPs for destroyed artillery are only being recorded as 15 VPs guns not the correct 30 VPs per gun. Not an error - that was that title's designer's call. Now if you want to debate whether it made s...

Yep -pretty much what I figured out when I worked out that despite it might feeling like it might be cool to add all sorts of 60's tunes to the Vietnam games- when all it took to do the same thing was come up with a playlist (mine might have been WinAmp at the time- but same idea) ... no point to it...

Maybe, Steve- but wrong caps on the artwork then (they got blue kepis). Not saying you're wrong - just rather this sort of thing ought to be the responsibility of the publisher to do (or have done by the people they employ). After doing an image search - m guessing that is probably correct... not ex...

So what unit is that supposed to be? Not aware of any unit using red jackets. Just curious.

I suppose if you paid in actually currency instead of that fake souvenir facsimile stuff, you might have better effect - but that's just me. And realising that this entire conflict is essentially the equivalent of a 5 year old siblings' debate on Constitutional interpretation ... 'can too' vs 'can n...

Yeh well 'balance' is an interesting concept- but it also requires a lot of familiarity with events or conditions outside the scope of how someone has applied an engine. Or put differently it is the difference between chess, and what actually happened at Hastings in 1066 (or pick a battle) ... check...

You know from a scenario designers' perspective, and to be blunt, but honest, I couldn't necessarily consider that every designer actually had a firm grasp on the VP/objective point value assessment. It isn't as easy as just picking out a few values- it also involves how those might interact (and -d...

I tend to agree with Walt on this one - but there is no real reason to get mixed up around the engine necessarily representing reality. The engine represents the designer's take on it. You're already playing on a hex grid, technically you've entered into a dimension of abstraction already; frankly I...

In absolute truth - it is whatever doesn't have foxing, and is a physical book. I will and have gone digital as a last resort -like the jp2's off of - but as a personal preference it would always be a hardcover if I had my choice, and it was available.

Mine's working as well - about the only thing I can think of might be if using the icons on the gui, it is the screwdriver/wrench button - not the shovel button.

Will have to check that out --- it is in Overland, right? It was working in Chancellorsville recently. Have to put that on my to do list.

Good morning Sven (leastwise it is where my camp has been)- and it's fine to meet you sir. I so need to visit New England some day (my family roots run pretty deep up that way). I probably sound like a broken record, but it's the honest truth, I so look forward to hearing of your future endeavours! ...

Welcome to the forum Gary - I know I sent you a brief bit of a group email a little bit ago, however not exactly the same thing. I'm a bit of a victim of global timezones (otherwise I would have been by earlier).

Welcome to the federal arms, mate. :) Looking forward to your future endeavours.

Walt, I have always valued our exchanges; have enjoyed your confidence, and am really privileged to have guys like yourself assigned to the group I am lucky enough to admin. I managed to miss this thread earlier because I must have been going on auto-pilot and assumed I had seen all pinned posts. Ba...
