REQUEST: Show experience of troops in battles

The battle scenes do not show us the experience level of the troops involved, as far as I can tell.

Especially if a unit is lost in combat, I want to know what level experience it had. It is terrible to lose veterans, and the way things are now, one never knows.

Needs and Imports

Think of Britain and its lack of Purple. It would be wonderful to have Purple available in a Region in Britain, but how would it ever get there? If you built a structure that "Needs" Purple, then it would obviously start arriving, but how? It would be a) out of Trade Range and b) highly expensive to...

A Pictes, crouching in his hovel in glens of Caledonia, fantasizes about coining in a mint of money through canny trading. He wishes to scout around and see what the reachable market is demanding, and then construct a building to fulfill these needs and the needs that will likely then follow. How ca...

Supply Ships?

The Picts started colonizing Africa, and were very short of food. It was very surprising to see that our allies had arrived on our coast with "Supply Ships". They looked like pirate raiders, but were they providing food? How were they constructed? What are the mechanics?

Marble Maniac

Please help a Marble Maniac in Montrose. In the game in mind, the Picts wish, more than anything else, to create cultural artifacts from marble. What is their best way to start this cultural extravaganza? What should be constructed to find the marble, and what should be constructed once it has been ...

Unity of Command?

Panzer Corps II and Unity of Command look very similar. I wonder whether the developers considered collaborating with Croteam and producing a single game instead of two similar ones.

It looks like a lot of the technology used is similar in both games.

Thanks for the update, rbodleyscott. The ability to scale down the number of units used when exporting battles from Empires to FOGII is most welcome. (If you are playing Empires, you mostly want to keep playing Empires, so smaller battles will enable you to return to Empires more quickly.) Would par...
