1SP Moorehead, NC, (now 0) Ft. FISHER, NC
1SP Weldon NC, (now 0) to Louisville, Ky now 2SP
1sp Mobile Al to Monroe La


Sorry about popping off about using the vassal map. But it would be easier if you would just look at the map sometimes








40 3/19/2018 11:05:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message This would not be a problem if you would ever bother to look at the vassal map file I always send. WHY DO YOU REFUSE TO LOOK AT THE MAP WHERE I HAVE PLOTTED THE MOVES AND USE TO WRITE THE ACTS MOVES!!!!!

1SP Charleston Sc, (now 0) to Nashville, now 3 sp
1SP Steven, Al, (now 0) to Nashville, now 4 sp
1SP Columbus, GA (now 0) to Nashville, now 5 sp
1SP Moorehead, NC, (now 0) to Nashville, now 2 sp
1SP Weldon NC, (now 0) to Louisville, Ky now 3SP

38 3/15/2018 6:28:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message There is a probleme in your moves :

"
1SP Charleston Sc, (now 0) to Nashville, now 3 sp
1SP Steven, Al, (now 0) to Nashville, now 4 sp
1SP Columbus, GA (now 0) to Nashville, now 5 sp
1SP Charleston Sc, (now 0) to Nashville, now 3 sp
1SP Weldon NC, (now 0) to Louisville, Ky now 2 sp
1SP Moorehead, NC, (now 0) to Louisville, now 3 sp
1SP Charleston Sc, (now 0) to Nashville, now 3 sp
"

lines 1 and 4 (1SP Charleston Sc, (now 0) to Nashville, now 3 sp) are repeated.
If you remove the 4th line (copy/paste error perhaps), you spent 6 points of SR, you have 1 left if you want.
Can you confirm?

37 3/13/2018 6:58:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message your leader placement

36 3/13/2018 6:57:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I Moved North Blockade Sp from Norfolk to Moorehead.

Don't forget to change your SP from Norfolk

Your strategic rail moves?
34 3/8/2018 11:02:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message OK for your reinforcements, except :
Norfolk not possible as blockade runner since fort Monroe is US controlled
You can place your SP in Morehead city, Fort Fisher or Wilmington.

2 blockade zones failed => - 4 SW
CSA was 110+ -4 (-3 fortune) makes it 103-
USA has no change so stays at 100-

I will play my SR later.
33 3/7/2018 6:53:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I have received your new email and will agree to we both do our own vassal file. Do you need me to resend my last file. I will list below my reinforcements.

Columbus Ga for East blockade
Norfolk, Va for North blockade

Richmond, VA 1 of 10 allowed
Weldon NC 2 of 10
Charleston, SC
Ft. Gadson, Fl for 4 of 10
Steven, Al
Nashville, TN 6 of 10
Louisville, Ky
Fayetteville, AR for 8 of 10
Marshall, TX
New Orleans for 10 of 10

Your strategic Movement phase.
32 2/27/2018 9:54:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I'm sorry but I do not agree. You are constantly doing your turn and I have to take the time to plot on the vassal map. You have to start a new file each time you do a move and then attach that vassal file when you send a email.

Second then if you want me to record everything in the ACTS file then you need to start doing the same. If your time is very constrained then let me know that is the problem. I very detailed listed each reinforcement in the vassal file by state and city location. You want me to do this twicw, once in vassal and once in ACTS. If I'm doing this then you should be able to do your moves on the Vassal map and then forward the vassal file each turn.

Let me know if this is a big problem.
31 2/27/2018 5:30:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message West gulf zone is closed (sabine city and fort jackson are US controlled)
No Reinforcement at New Orleans.
Please can you list your reinforcements here?

I thing that exchanging .vlog files is pretty long, I rather play as follow:
Each time we have a move or reinforcement or loss, we write here with details.
After each of your rounds, you send me your vallasl file .vsav and I check that everything is ok.

Do you agree?
30 2/26/2018 9:18:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message 3 blockade sp placed and 10 state reinforcements placed.

Your Strategic Movement phase. Please send your Strat moves in a vassal file.

Bowling Green, Lebanon and Louisville are first 3 ops part one.
Part two of the minor campaign is CSA using its 3 ops second portion of the minor campaign to place three more PC markers in KY.
17 2/26/2018 7:42:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message You cannot play the minor campaign as you do.

Message from Union:
event
11 2/25/2018 4:28:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message OK with the move, but there is a problem with the vassal file: you have 6 SP in richmond, you should have 5.
1 from JJ, 3 from Beauregard and 1 from richmond = 1+3+1=5

10 2/25/2018 3:13:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message J. Johnson with 1 sp in Winchester Va moves to Strasburg and then to Manassas and picks up Beauregard and 3 Sp, now 4 SP. They then moved to Fredericksburg , Hanover and end in Richmond with 5sp. 5sp , Beauregard and J.Johnson now in Richmond.

I sent vassal file to your (m_smoucha@yahoo.fr;) email.
If this is not correct email to send vassal files please let me know
9 2/25/2018 8:20:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message "play as event. Move J. Johnson to Bearegard and move forces closer to Richmond to form ANV"

You mean play as operation I think
I don't understand the move. JJ (+ 1 SP) goes to strasburg, then manassas, and after?

I did not receive any attached file with your email

If you play with vassal, you can send me your vassal file .vsav after each move and I will check it.

Campaign card?
4 2/23/2018 10:55:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Hi
Do you play with vassal or cyberboard?
3 2/23/2018 10:54:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Draw Strategy cards 4 cards drawn.

2 2/21/2018 6:36:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I have set up the new game and drew my 4 cards. I would say we send files back and forth each move so unit placement is correct this time. I had a tough time following the game without send a move file. We can use vassal if you like or just send email with attached game files that are numbered starting with 001.
1 2/21/2018 6:33:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Draw Strategy cards 4 cards drawn.
