    Some players the Company/Regiment name shows up with their name when the "T" key is pressed.
    Is this generated by the game or did the player changes his Steam name to include the identifier?

    Right now it is based by the steam ID of the user. I believe in the released version it is to match the company tool.

    Although we aren't US Regulars so we might not be what the OP is looking for.

    Either way though, one thing you could do to check if a company is active in the Company Tool, is scroll down and check the Company Records at the bottom of a company's page. It has time stamps for all the various activities. That's not to say a particular company might not be active in other places such as the forum or Steam but at least it's somewhat of an indication of activity.

    Using that trick you might be able to find a company of US Regulars that's active, but if you don't, you're always welcome to join the 42ndPA!

    Because when you really want the job done right, you send in the Regulars.

    When we want the job done we send in Jackson! ��. Good luck on your search, friend!
    When at first the southern flag unfurled
    its' folds upon the air,
    Its' stars had hardly gathered 'til
    Kentucky's sons were there.
    And we swore a solemn oath and sternly
    gathered round
    We would only live as freemen in the
    dark and bloody ground.

    Won't he feel awful alone out there by himself?
    We prefer to send at least a company, maybe a regiment.

    Sorry, but the CSA didn't have "regulars", what history proves is the volunteer & Provisional troops of the CSA were more resilient than union "regulars".

    Although, that being said, CSA troops were quite "regular".

    Oddly enough when I looked up Regulars it turned out that the Confederacy had Regulars. All the major commanders had both a Regular rank and a volunteer rank. So Stonewall Jackson was still a Major of artillery in the regular CSA but a General of Volunteers.

    Here is a list of the "Regular" CSA infantry(there were more cavalry ones) units raised. They don't have State designations.

    1st Confederate Infantry (1st Confederate Regiment, Georgia Volunteers)
    2nd Confederate Infantry
    3rd Confederate Infantry (Marmaduke's 18th Arkansas Infantry Regiment, and additional Tennessee units)
    4th Confederate Infantry (1st Regiment, Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi Infantry)
    9th Confederate Infantry (5th Confederate Infantry; 5th Confederate Regiment, Tennessee Infantry)
    23rd Confederate Infantry (Alabama Volunteers)
    Bailey's Consolidated Regiment of Infantry
    Tucker's Confederate Regiment (also known as "1st Foreign Battalion"; "1st Foreign Legion":former Union prisoners of war)
    1st Battalion, Confederate Infantry (Forney's Regiment)
    8th Confederate Battalion (also known as "2nd Foreign Battalion"; "2nd Foreign Legion": former Union POWs)
    Brooks' Battalion, Confederate Regular Infantry (also known as "Brooks Foreign Battalion": former Union POWs)
    Haskell's Company, Infantry

    Some people just can't see a joke at times.
