    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.
    Currahee!

    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.

Once the battalion reaches 3 or so companies, it musters and becomes a full fledged organization.
    This is a really good idea, and I think that this is definitely the direction we should be taking with a larger organization system.

    I think that the "battalion" should be created on the same principle like forming a company. Simply choose and click. Commander of the battalion can then invite other companies to join his unit or commanders of the companies can volunteer to join battalion, same principle like soldier making a volunteer to join a company. Simple and practical. If the commander of the company would not be satisfied with their membership in the unit, they can simply leave the battalion.

    Definitely do not mix other army branches together in one battalion! War of Rights is supposed to be historically accurate and thats how the true community of this game like it! No fiction units!

    Don't worry about Company K of the 9th NY.


    This regiment, Col. Rush C. Hawkins, was organized in New York city, and there mustered in the service of the United States for two years, May 4, 1861; it was accepted by the State, and received its numerical designation, May 13, 1861. One company was formed of members of the 18th Regiment, State Militia, and Company K was equipped as an artillery company, and served as such until November 10, 1862.

    That doesnt mean that every infantry battalion can have artillery company attached to it. Cases like this are a very few. Developers could make a exceptions for units like yours.

    There can be two methods of creating a battalion.
    Example for the first method:
    You are company commander of 8th Florida Infantry Company A and you want to create a battalion, you then simply click and create 8th Florida Infantry Battalion and your Company A will be automatically attached to your created battalion.

    Example of the second method:
    You want to be regimental commander right away, so you then simply create 18th North Carolina Battalion and other Companies of 18th North Carolina can join your battalion.

    Companies can join your battalion if they are from the same origin! Example: If your Company is 23rd Virginia Company A and you want to join 8th Florida Battalion it is not possible!

    Only if your company has the same origin like the battalion you wish to join, then it can join the battalion.

    someone is so eager to start a battalion, but this is a game and historical accuracy you are talking about is to an extend, or are you telling me 8th Florida company C was a Czechia company way back then? Did the 8th FL fought on every battlefield? No they did not, or do you restrict yourself to play on just the battlefields they fought on for historical accuracy? So let people make there clans how they see fit. I think some good ideas have been mentioned before in this thread.

    Really like your idea Tišer! Simple and to the point.
