Re: MP Scenario 2: Supply Lines

At the moment there are still too few registered in doodle for the scenario2 being played this week. I hope some more enlist until tomorrow Wink


I did run some tests with cavalry capturing supply wagons (both in SP and MP, there is no difference):

  • Giving the order to "charge" doesn't work.
  • Just walking/riding on the wagons does work sometimes (it seems your flag has to touch the enemy's flag).
  • The best way I have found is to use the special cavalry command "Raid weak targets", one of the green toggle buttons on the last page of the cavalry toolbar. This works in about 90% of all cases. The cavalry rides towards the nearest weak target and charges it. In the other 10% they walk away and must be halted or moved closer to the target first. I will post a tutorial with some screenshots about how to use this properly.

I am positive that capturing will work more or less as designed.

Apologies for feebleness, but the female gender has imposed a moratorium on my online gaming activities at the present time, alleging overindulgence :-) I hope to rediscover my masculinity and rejoin you guys at a later stage - rest assured you are doing a great job Stefan.

A little off topic, but last night in an MP game one of my infantry regiments captured a wagon. Actually, it blundered into the regiment, but it was still captured. It may be that the flag of the regiment has to touch the flag of the wagon. I've seen a few wagons pass though a part of an enemy regiment without being captured, so that may be something worth trying.

Yes, that has always been my thinking, that flag must hit flag and was what I was trying to do when testing with cavalry when trying to capture wagons in the game last week.

EDIT: Also guys, even if you cannot make any of the offered dates, or have no interest in the scenario, or have other reasons why you don't want to play, it is still worth you logging in, filling the rows with red Xs and leaving a note in the comments section as to why. That is still valuable feedback and will help us all to schedule games at different times or design different scenarios. Votes of "no thank you" are still valuable votes, as long as we know why you voted "no".

I updated the scenario based on the experience from the first try and some further testing.
I will send the initial briefings now to the designated CinC's Blaugrana and Martin James. Just in case we get enough players for a game this week. It looks like saturday might work.

@Mr Digby and Martin James: Could you please register in doodle as well? http://www.doodle.com/i99cda5qf95c3i66
Very Happy Thanks

Great scenario, Stefan, and great game, all! It was utterly absorbing - I'm exhausted.

Thanks again,

This was the player list of yesterdays game.

Martin is playing Brig. Gen. David S. Stanley
Marching Thru Georgia is playing Col. Albert Jenks
kg sspoom is playing Col. John W. Fuller
Khryses is playing Col. Joseph A. Mower


Blaugrana is playing Brig. Gen. Frank C. Armstrong
Hays is playing Col. W. C. Falkner
Digby is playing Col. William F. Slemons
4TEXAS is playing Brig. Gen. Louis Hebert


I was riding as an observer with the main union force in the eastern part of the battle.
Here are some pictures


General Mower is very closely escorting his supply wagons.


But then two of the wagons decided to take a wrong turn. General Hebert, who was only screening the US advance until now, senses an excellent opportunity to strike and attacks. Col. Jenks sees this threat and is able to counter with one of his Illionis cavalry regiments.


Meanwhile the other two wagons on the main road are undefended and General Stanley cannot believe his eyes when they are captured under his nose by rebel raiders. Col. Falkner plays a very nice hit-and-run game and disappears as fast as he appeared.


After this shock the federal commanders are able to recover and get back most of the captured supplies.


On the hills north of Union Mills begins a fierce cavalry battle between Col. Jenks and Col. Slemons. Later, the confederates are able to gain a numerical advantage and drive the federals off the hills.


As General Mowers brigade reaches the safe ground of Union Mills, the US supply wagons did not and are captured once again by General Hebert!
But Mowers brigade was able to regain its credit when they turned back, drove the rebels from the road and even recaptured some wagons Surprised

Final Result
1 supply wagon reached its destination.
6 supply wagons were captured by rebels but recaptured again by federal troops and reached their destination in time. Some of the goods however were destroyed in the constant fighting.
The rest has fallen in rebel hands or didnt reach the destination in time.

Major Victory for the Confederate side. Congratulations!

Outlook: This outcome fits very nicely to the Iuka storyline Very Happy Hope to see you in next weeks scenario, there are still open slots...
