  • With Jack new OOBs I decided to mess around and see what I could do. I sent up with vanguard which consisted on Montbrun's Division, Field arty battery, 10eme Legere, and all of St. Hiliares voltiguers. So I detached all the infantry from their division, but is there any way I could attach them to Montbrun divison? Since they are my vanguard their purpose is to find the enemy and either skirmish with them using the volts or to stand up long enough for my other divisons under Morand, Gudin, and Friant arrive in an area around the first contact. Right now it is a lot of clicking and moving because I have to move each unit that is not under Montbrun command to a certain place.

    Thanks

    LN,

    There may be a way to do it. In the orders section on the toolbar there are a couple of buttons for attaching and detaching units. They have little flags on them. I believe they have the ability to attach units to different commanders. I have not done this, but only because I'm lazy. Give it a shot.

    No. It is a bug. That capability is suppose to exist, but units can only be attached to their original parent unit.

    I can make this march and I will make Georgia howl.

  • Well then it seems I will just need to learn to bring the Light infantry Brigader general with me then!


    Hopefully and I am not sure if it is possible, but if this MOD gets multiplayer the Apline map will be great for searching out the enemy with someone commanding the vanguard on both sides. Then the overall commander issues orders to his corps or division commanders. Now that is what American Conquest Napoleonic game was really missing a map where you can actually travel and issues orders instead of just talking during the game through the sidebar.

    LN,

    Depending on what you want, I can run up a quick OOB for you. Let me know what you wnat and which OOB you are pulling this from. Take maybe an hour, probably less, depending on if I'm right here or not.

  • No worries Jack at work tonight I will write down the OOB from Montbrun fight on the far side of the battle at Teugen-Hausen. He was detached and actually was very badly outnumbered but the Austrians were never sure what size force they faced.
