    Scourge of War Antietam - the-strategy-wargamer.tumblr.com/post/57623865551/scourge-of-war-antietam-review-a-month-ago-i

    Most Wanted Features:

    - Mini Map orders. Wish I can direct my brigades or divisions through the mini map. Click on a brigade and drag a line where I want them to go

    Also I wish the mini map would be less cluttered. Its sometimes real hard to find leaders, brigades, etc. Could we also include a zoom option. Ran into a problem at Chancellorsville where tons of units were on top of each other and I couldnt make heads or tails.

    - Full Battle Scenarios. I know the game will be long but I think this would be a awesome feature. Imagine playing Gettysburg Day 1 all the way to Day 3, or Chancellorsville Day 1 to Day 4. Your in command of The Confederate Army. You can follow historical strategy and relive the battle OR you can devise your own strategy and change history.

    - Entrenching. Would love this feature. For obvious reasons lol.

    - Fire at selected unit. Wish I would be able to tell my regiment which enemy unit I want them to concentrate their fire on.

    Now I know some people will say some of these features dont show you the frustration a commander had to deal with. ie. Orders not followed, fire at selecting unit, etc. But remember its a game its not supposed to frustrate you... its supposed to be fun.

    Anyway great games Norbsoft. The graphics, gameplay... are amazing. I CANNOT wait to review my next Scourge of War Game and see what other features you have in store.

  • You will find a mod for Gettysburg 3 Days Carryover that will give you part of what you want in the Mod section of the forum.

    Just in case you weren't aware, there is a Command Map feature that basically accomplishes this. It is explained in detail on pg. 55 of the manual.
