    I see. Thank you for the explanation! Will the Maryland Campaign remain the sole focus of the game for its entire development?

    We will concentrate on the campaign Maryland Campaign for the next couple of years, indeed

    If we have other plans, like adding a new campaign, you will read it in the forum of course. But we have no intension to concentrate on a new campaign, unless we haven't finished the Maryland Campaign.

    But adding a new battlefield for example would require 2-3 years of work (research, map making and such), just for a single 1:1 recreated battlefield map

    I guess we can bank on Mr George Crecy being already underway in Pennsylvania with a measuring tape since a year right?!

    Hey Bravescot hope you are well sir - apologize about the 3 year time in response! It will not happen again if the opportunity presents itself! The suggestion was not specifically to make in game medals for perks on my end - more along the lines of adding these metric's in company tool so commanders can keep track of "time spent training" & "Time spent on the field" - with the other metrics I listed in the original post. Many companies and orgs since then have created there own internal medal and citations systems that this implementation could reinforce - but also give commanders the sense of an individuals members level of activity on and off the field.

    I have two suggestions for the Company Tool; the addition of two units that are not yet available but were at the battle. The first unit would be the 2nd Maryland Artillery Company aka, "The Baltimore Battery".

    Here's a small post about their involvement in the battle - http://civilwarintheeast.com/confede...llery-company/

    And this next one might be a bit of a stretch, but my great (x3) grandfather was at Antietam with the 145th Pennsylvania Volunteer regiment, but they were not engaged in the actual fighting. They were posted up on the Union right flank to prevent the Confederates from attempting to flank around the Union right near the Potomac, but were not attacked during the fight. They stayed overnight and posted pickets and helped bury the dead the next day. Even though they did not get to fight, it would still be nice to see them at least in the company tool since they were there.

    Greetings Sir!

    First, all units that were actually at and engaged in the 1862 Maryland Campaign are associated with the Company Tool.
    With that said, according to the history that I could find on the 145th PA, I did verify that they were near Hagerstown / Sharpsburg / Antietam by September 15-17th but don't appear to be officially assigned to an organization until after that date and battle were fought.
    (Reference Information : 145th Regiment Infantry, Organized at Erie September 5, 1862. Moved to Chambersburg. Pa., September 11-12, thence to Hagerstown and Antietam, Md., September 15-17. Attached to 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, 2nd Army Corps, Army of the Potomac, to October, 1862. 1st Brigade, 1st Division, 2nd Army Corps, to April, 1863. 4th Brigade, 1st Division, 2nd Army Corps, to May, 1865.)
    The list of assigned performed service starts on October 22nd 1862, and that was in Harper's Ferry.

    So by the "rules" stated earlier about being in the campaign, they were close but not close enough apparently. Sorry.

    ---

    As for the 2nd Baltimore Battery, the battery was under Captain J. B. Brockenbrough and is identified as Brockenbrough's Battery in the Company Tool. It was a part of Jackson's (Brig Gen J. R. Jones') Artillery Battalion of Jackson's (Jones') Division under Maj. L. M. Shumaker.

    <Edit: All batteries in the Company Tool are under the acting commander's name on the date of the battle.>

    There is a mistake with the 1st New York Mounted Rifles. It should be the 1st NY Cavalry not Mounted Rifles

    The Rifles did not take part at Antietam:

    https://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist...RiflesMain.htm

    Battles and Casualties

    https://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist...iflesTable.htm


    But the Cavalry was part of the Army of Potomac

    https://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist...1stCavMain.htm

    Battles and Casualties

    https://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist...stCavTable.htm

    so i suggest to rename it. ^^
