"Personally I don't like battles on the Antietam maps if you need to manouver because there are way too many fences, and performance is worse than other maps."

Can you expand on that please, Stefan?  Are you saying that all the fences hit FPS, and this makes for a slow game?  If so, is there anything we could do (eg with the map modding tools) to improve matters?

I personally like all 3 Antietam maps but the main map does seem to be either buggier than others or demands more resources. The Sharpsburg map also, more than most, draws the battle into a quite limited area. In the past though I've used the Antietam Creek as a good basis of making an attacker cross an unfordable stream, so in that respect its a useful map to have available for a campaign.

I can easily change the movement and fatigue penalties on these maps so they are similar to those on the C'ville maps. Antietam was the worst expansion pack NSD put out. Very little, if any, thought went into playing anything other than the scenarios. This has always been the great failing of NSD. Nearly all efforts are directed towards scenario play. Any changes to gameplay are looked upon suspiciously as they may negatively impact previously created scenarios.

I'm going to avoid use of Antietam in the campaign.

I do need to know which GCM map pack to focus on. GCM2?

Big campaign update tonight.

re Antietam

I remember a battle with Jack, I think it was the Crampton Gap Map in the east. It was a nightmare to move my troops from A to B and after moving about 2 miles, most troops were tired or worse, despite moving on roads as much as possible. But the AI sometimes just likes to march 100 yards on top of a fence instead of the open ground nearby  Crying or Very sad 

I think the fences hit FPS a bit, but they mainly hit the fatigue of my troops  Very Happy 

I agree with Jack that the Sharpsburg map is poor in performance/FPS in general.

Troops marching on fences instead of the roads isn't a problem of that map, its a bug in the game, happens on all mpas though of course it shows up most on maps with fenced roads.

I think Kevin amended the road fatigue for the Crampton Gap map and possibly others after we had this discussion about fatigue - what? - over a year ago? I haven't noticed any fatigue issues on the Sharpsburg map any different to any other map recently. Maybe its how players handle their troops? I always rest my men at all times whenever I can and try to never go into battle straight from a march.

The battle doesn't force itself on Digby, Digby forces himself on the battle.  Very Happy

I once heard that General Howe, before the battle of Brandywine, stopped his column at midday to allow men to brew their tea. Not sure if that's true, but it sounds quite Digby and Digby IS British, therefore using my powers of logic, I conclude this story to be true.

They didn't lose, Byrd, they just decided 'Murica wasn't worth the effort anymore.



This image looks innocent enough, but if you knew those underwear were made somewhere besides the USA, you'd be embarrassed for our country too. King George and Parliament definitely made the right call.

So who *really* won the American Revolution?

So it can't be called a loss if it involves the decision of one of the parties that trying to win is not worth the effort? Wink

Quite the underwear too. Very Happy

It was all worth it for those refreshing cups of tea.
