    Thank you. The historic buildings such as John brows fort or the destroyed armories will be enterable - we've decided not to make the normal town houses enterable as we're not looking for a Dayz like experience where everyone is hiding in their own house (there are several hundred houses in Harper's Ferry and Bolivar).

    Shepherdstown is 12 miles up, so while you can see the rough contours of the landscape there, you won't be able to see it, no.

    In regards to Easter eggs - who knows!

    Will the pledge reward uniforms just be privates or will we have NCO and officer class versions to go along with them?

    That is the plan.

    Probably a good time to give you all an update as to the availability of the backer reward uniforms.

    When first conceived, before the Kickstarter, the plan was indeed to have generic uniforms available for non backers in the regiments that are featured as reward uniforms and then only to have the backers wear the "correct" uniform.

    While in theory sound, the sheer number of regiments we wish to feature will mean very little to no chance of a backer ever being able to wear his reward uniform (he'd had to hope the correct skirmish area featuring the regiment of his reward is being played or (at a later stage, such as in historical battle mode possibly, his regiment would be voted in as one of the active ones of the match).

    This all ends up giving extremely little value to the reward and is why (at the very least for skirmishes) we're going to allow you to use your reward uniforms whenever you wish. Faction locks are obviously still in place (can't use a 11th Mississippi uniform while fighting for the Union) but the uniform rewards won't be tied to regiments as was first planned.

    This might seem like a step away from authenticity and perhabs it is a bit. Please, however keep in mind the relatively small amount of people with these rewards - never obtainable again once the crowdfunding campaign ends.

    We want to make the reward feel like It's worth something (it ought to be considering the asking prices) and we can only do that by making it useable far more often than whenever the correct regiment just happens to be featured.

    Lastly, we are still very open to change this stuff, especially the availability of the uniforms in the historical battle mode when that launches in the future. Please don't hesitate to let us know your thoughts!
