Re: MP Export?

the phasing is nearly impossible to resolve. and a turn could take a long time to run. For eg, battle between 2 players occurs in the first impulse. They have to decide (both? just one?) to take to FoG2, fight and return. In the meantime (FoW) the other player(s) are completely unaware of why the tu...

one small bit, by using two armies, and all the swapping of units between commands, you are chucking away a lot of experience as units and commanders don't match. worth remembering, if you send two armies into a region and they arrive and fight together, they are 'merged' so one group of units picks...

Re: Concerns about combat and FoG II Integration

1 - I solved this one by taking the option in FoG2 for armies to be inflated, I think you can go up to 50%. That seems to avoid the issue of a small elite army that can get swamped. 2 - is actually bad news, if I recall right, its really a penalty for the weaker commander to reflect some of their ar...

Re: I was led to believe that I could "play tall"?

I was led to believe that I could "play tall"? But it seems to me that regions seem to be the major factor in legacy computation. Thus, the game seems to encourage not painting the entire map, but painting more of the map than any serious competitor. Am I missing something? Thanks. I'd reverse your...

WAD, same happens Sicily-Italy.

fleets only stop land movements if the region border is all sea.

Re: Possible to mod quality of national leaders?

if you go to 'groups' in the set up files you can amend leader bias - raise or lower this and you change the likelihood of getting decent rulers & generals

Re: I am confused by amphibious ops???

fine if you have absolute superiority, I was suggesting how to manage close escort with the fleet in its own stack.

I also think you may find that Mahan is less than totally relevant to ancient naval warfare?

Re: I am confused by amphibious ops???

I never combine a fleet and an army. Gain sea control with your fleet. Know where the enemy ships are and neutralize them. Then move your army in safety with its commander in charge. Good luck! its simpler than that, just make sure the fleet and the army enter a region in the same sub-phase during ...

Re: Playing on EXPERIENCE 150 turns in - Supply?

overland supply in Empires is fairly straightforward, as long as you have control over at least one neighbouring region, food will be turned to supply and sent to you. if you have landed say in N Africa, supply can come from a fleet off shore, you'll need to do some rotating but its simpler than the...

Re: When I get the msg "Harsh weather next turn"?

in effect the next turn will be 'winter'. The impact of this will vary from reduced battle frontage to blocked regions (mountains will be impassable). In the deserts you can get sandstorms - similar effect. Note that both blizzards and sandstorms can hit at any turn, just more likely in the winter t...

you missed this section: In larger battles the unit conversion ratio is down-scaled to keep the number of units manageable You can partially control for this within FoG2 as you can adjust the conversion rate from the baserate up to about +50% (ie you get larger armies and thus more chance of small u...

Re: Islands have access to Bonus Goods across water??

I think the key on map clue is if the border between the regions is sea then there is no land connection (& thus no access to bonus goods) - Malta/Sicily is a good eg of this. But yes that cluster off Denmark are all land connections
