1156 1/23/2023 7:22:00 PM Turn 12 Jeremy R Message Just realized ACTS has been duplicating every post I've made tonight. I have no idea why.

For the record, I used the second of the dice roll posts, because that's the only one I saw when I checked the ACTS page. However, it looks like the results would have been the same - strange.

1151 1/23/2023 6:18:00 PM Turn 12 Jeremy R Message At 6-1, Smith must be destroyed without causing any casualties to the AoP, so no point in rolling for combat.

BTY.
1149 1/16/2023 2:41:00 PM Turn 12 Jeremy R Message Think an attack on Poland is currently unlikely - that would amount to a declaration of war on NATO and Russia already seems to have its hands full. On the over hand, the chairman of the JCS is reported as talking about what amounts to conscription.

No, was just observing that, given the widespread use of drones in Ukraine, it's surprising they don't seem to be represented in NW:P. They're probably "factored in" or maybe they've been all been used. :)

1128 12/24/2022 4:28:00 PM Turn 12 Shannon M Message I will be remote in the Bay Area for the new job. When I go down to LA the new job will pay for my flight and hotel.

If I were to drive down it's roughly 6 hours. That would only happen if I wanted to see things as a flight is about an hour.
1127 12/24/2022 7:51:00 AM Turn 12 Jeremy R Message So, what's the distance to LA from where you are? About 400 miles? I guess that's not too difficult logistically. Moving yourself, of hiring someone?

Not sure what to say about Korea. Don't think I have even fought over it.

Hope the airport stays open for you.

1121 12/22/2022 6:10:00 PM Turn 12 Shannon M Message I'll be traveling to Italy December 27th through January 11th. I will only have an iPhone and iPad. Not sure if the iPad works with Vassal since Apple Store doesn't like Java but if you've heard anything let me know. Otherwise, no moves from me during that time.
1120 12/13/2022 5:12:00 AM Turn 12 Shannon M Message No, the trip to Italy is a vacation. The job is mostly remote with occasional trips to LA and elsewhere like South Korea.

1112 12/2/2022 4:02:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message You had me fooled because I had already rolled for Stuart and was waiting for his reaction. Not to worry, you can always move him.

OK - end of turn. Think I have updated everything correctly, but suggest you check.
1111 12/2/2022 5:26:00 AM Turn 11 Shannon M Message I corrected myself and said Stuart, yes?
1110 12/1/2022 4:22:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message Not sure why you think Morgan needed to roll for reaction.

In J v S Turn 11 187, you had him react from 4906 to 4905. That means Lyon's subsequent move in J v S Turn 11 189 from 4906 > 4806 > 4807 > 4708 wouldn't cause Morgan to react.

Can you clarify?

1106 11/30/2022 6:27:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message Still windy, but nothing to compare with the storm. However, now we've reached the end of "meteorological Fall" (don't you love how meteorologists have to be different), it has gone cold. (But, since the sun is only up for 7 hours, what can you expect?)
1105 11/30/2022 6:19:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message Rolled for Stuart's reaction to Lyon's advance into Staunton as per your standing orders.

Pausing for his reaction - he can go to 4607, 4608, or 4709. Lyon has 1 MP remaining.

It's okay to have the AOC on the river since you thought you had supply by railroad and we are not playing a hardcore tournament.
1092 11/21/2022 6:12:00 PM Turn 11 Shannon M Message No worries.

For cav not opposed by enemy cav I do the reaction first and, if it fails, the leader check. No sense in killing off my guy. :)

Back to work for me.
1091 11/21/2022 6:08:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message Sorry about all the mix ups - that missing link phased me completely.

Also, sorry about the delay. Had a storm on Saturday and it knocked out our broadband and landline. Got it back this afternoon, though, and all seems well so far.

1087 11/19/2022 4:23:00 PM Turn 11 Shannon M Message I think the AOC should be 19, not 20 on the counter, right? Once that is confirmed I can continue with the pulse.

19 to 4 is L but goes to J because of the fortress.
1086 11/19/2022 4:19:00 PM Turn 11 Shannon M Message We should stick with the rolls used on rerolls that way there is no temptation to try for a better roll lol
1085 11/16/2022 3:21:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message Well spotted, I have never noticed that missing link before.

I'll still make the attack, but with a slightly different move and attack at 2-1 (see updated file). I'm happy to give with the die rolls I made originally. However, if you'd prefer to re-roll, please go ahead and resolve the attack. The Union impulse is finished anyway.
1084 11/16/2022 4:40:00 AM Turn 11 Shannon M Message Looks like you RR an sp to 2116 won't work. If you remove the flags on the map you'll see there isn't a RR connection. Let me know how to proceed.
1083 11/14/2022 4:40:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message Whoops, just realized the dice difference was 5, not 6. I would have done much the same anyway, so please just put back the 1 East SP I placed in 5503. Sorry.
1082 11/14/2022 4:32:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message The CSA force in Memphis gets one re-roll because Little Mac is so useless. Just apply the result when you've made the roll and move the AoC back to 2117. Everything else is done, so you can then carry on with your impulse.

Of the ones I've read in the series, The Battle of the Wilderness is the best (I bought Huzzah! 2 off the back of it), but collectively, they are the best books on the ACW I've read since The Guns of Cedar Creek. (However, think it's fair to say he's not impressed with Grant or Meade.)

1065 11/10/2022 6:52:00 PM Turn 11 Jeremy R Message No worries about the delay - have been busy, myself.

Dave is Dave McCarty. He's in Oklahoma, so I guess he's somewhere on the FW map.

Yep, thought Lee would head south - when is he planning on changing the army's name?

Not sure you got the Confederate Raider rules right. I think the modification for the Union boats and Farragut apply to all raiders in the At Sea because 21.6.6 says:

"For each ocean ironclad in the At Sea Box during the Commerce Raider Phase, 1 is subtracted from the dice roll of each Commerce Raider."

Also, I think the one transport does subtract one from the die roll because the last sentence of 21.6.6 says:

"Fractions are rounded down; however, transport totals of 3 or less are considered to have an effect of 1 subtracted from the dice roll."

(Not well written, I know.)

For what it's worth, I think this means the changes to the raider rules are not very good. I've been wondering about how to improve them. I suppose the simplest way is to implement the changes for the Rebel ironclads, but leave the raider rules unchanged. Another way might be to limit the Union to using Ocean Transports. However, that's something for another game.

In case you're interested, here's another ACW site I came across:

https://altchive.org/

Now, back to Gordon Rhea's magnum opus on the Overland campaign. It's a big one: am on book 3 and the armies are still at Spotsylvania.
