Thread: Battalion Level Suggestions

  1. #31
    Well if I understand properly kind of like LtCol Redleader said if you dont want to form a corps or Brigade you dont have to, but I think we all agree no one should be forced into one on historical basis. Let it be ahistorical and go from there. There are currently only 3 groups organized as corps right now anyway; I Corps, II Corps and IX Corps... Js

    Even smaller settings would be welcomed. Might even open up more organisations which I think would help the community to get better organisation and more activity and competition. Needs at least a tool to verify the leader of each unit to be active on a regular base

    I think the idea with battalions is fine, however it would be even cooler if this Toolkit was directly related to the game. In my opinion, the developers had such ideas. Sorry for offtopic, but here will be important in my opinion.

    About the system with the battalions, it is likely you will need administrative plan? Now I don't know about larger associations than the 2nd Сorps. And whether there is from it some applied sense or only as a fad? Could anyone satisfy my interest in this topic?

    There are currently 3 organized Corps of regiments. Two in the CSA (I and II) and one in the Union (IX)

    Thank you, but i saw only 2 corps on my mind. It's my fault ofc. But what about applied sense? What that battalions need doing? i read this topic but don't know how this work in game. I would like to see a good tool that will allow you to take/fire fighters right in the game. To raise in a rank and to appoint to positions that they had the functionality allowing them to realize the official duties. And of course the tags that will define us as soldiers of a certain company is a member of the battalion. So far it is a very good tool, but there is not enough implementation in the game.

    This way it is possible to solve another problem. Nicknames.

    I would certainly like to see battalions that can show us a larger scale in battles with good organization and discipline, but so far I see only that few are ready to unite. This is a subjective my opinion is not claiming the truth for all.

    I do hope that if and when the company tool gets integrated with the game, we will have the option that with our made organisations we as players can fall in where needed. As an example if the richmond howitzers are in a clan together with the 2nd Virginia Infantry and the 1st Virginia Cavalry we can fill up each others spots when needed and to give players a option to try out other branches mix up the game play on the historical battle mode.

    Not sure why there's so much talk about "Corps" in game when there's much smaller(in scale)units like regiments that match these "Corps" numbers. Let's keep this idea somewhat realistic for now and go with a "regiment tool" first, then open up the field later on down the line. The "Corps" can still band together ad-hoc like they are now, while someone like 4th Texas or 6thLA can also organize themselves by regiment within that framework.

    You can implement requirements that will give you a curtain title.

    Have x amount of companies involved to get names: regiment -(Battalion)- brigade - (division - corps seems to big for the game but okay.. not against it)
    You could make regiments and have attached other branches.

    Example 3rd AL regiment + Attached such and such.
    So you don't mess up the name but have the organisation and visible connection possible in the company tool

    You can get a Legion included for the a-historical clans if they wish to be named as such.

    That'd work, I hadn't thought of a system that scales to the number of companies involved. Legions could be an organization like the type Ted E. Bear and Lenin are trying to set up; no direct chain of command etc.

    So a automatic system where the company tool dictates your organisational name? I think that can work
    Suited for those who can and want to start a historical correct organisation, and a system for those groups who enjoy playing together although not historical in the same organisation, they will have a place in the company tool to get organized.


    Options for Leadership: By vote & By appointing a leader so people can choose which fits their play style


    Because someone needs to start a organisation it would be wise to have a Company Captain starting a organisation to set up the rules about:
    - Voting or appointing a leader
    - How will companies be able to enter? Does every company initially involved agree that a new company can join?

    Example:: 1st Texas A B C D are friendly with each other they start up a battalion/regiment. Company K wants to join. A B C agree with company K to be aboard but company D does not like the guys in company K.
    How will that work?

    - Allow other branches to be Attached. Example 6th Louisiana regiment (attached 1st Virginia Cavalry B)
    So 1st VA Cav. will fight under the 6th LA regimental banner in the company tool.



    Legion besides the historical Legion's this setting could also be used for A-historical mixed branches wanting to team up.
