Ralegh -> Ralegh Guides (7/2/2005 9:00:38 AM)

OK - since it seems Matrix and WCS are off at Origins at the moment, I will make these available from my company's web site for now. Expect them to be moved to a more authoratitive point in a week ot two.

Ralegh Tip Guide is a merging of a lot of advice created during the beta -beta players said is was a great help, and if we had enough time it would have gone into the manual.

Ralegh Briefing - France 1805 this is the first of the national briefing docs: it provides an under-the-hood look at France in 1805, answering questions like: which provinces are good at what? Whats the starting morale of the units? I will complete additional briefing docs over the next few days and advise on this thread.

Comments, questions, etc welcome.

[Hover your mouse over the doc titles above - they are links]

Most helpful, thanks.

Ralegh -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/3/2005 6:56:19 AM)

Having now tried to actually USE the current format brieifing document, I will now amend the darn things so that:
(a) list of provinces in the order they appear in the development area
(b) include the list of political goals for the country.

Anyone got any other suggestiions before I dive back into the 4 already done?

Beorn -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/3/2005 4:08:43 PM)

Wow, these are great!!!

dpazuk -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/3/2005 7:39:44 PM)

Thank you kind sir! [&o]

Jagger2002 -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/4/2005 12:25:47 AM)

It would be nice for future players, if this thread were stickied. It would be a shame to see it disappear after a couple of days.

Hi. I got this game a couple of days ago and finally got the time to look things over. I just downloaded your wonderful briefings and have a question. What are the blue boxes highlighted for? Can't figure them out.


jchastain -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/4/2005 8:50:20 PM)

Great Info Ralegh. I wonder if you've put together a macro economic report for all the nations? I compiled something simple (just added up the number of provinces each has that lists each item as a "best") since I find when contemplating trades, I like to know who has an abundance or shortage of what. But your guides are much more in depth.

Yeah - no legend! I coloured in some cells to identify things that are noteworthy. To put it another way, in the development area, these guide my initial allocation of labour.

I will - I haven't finished doing them all yet! - Watch this space.

jchastain -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/5/2005 7:42:21 AM)

Where are you getting the detailed province build figures Ralegh. I assume you are digging into a config file because I don't see anything this precise in the game. Mind if I asked where all of this juicy info is coming from?

marc420 -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/7/2005 10:29:33 AM)

Got me curious and I went looking. Data Folder. File name: EUProv2.txt

Ralegh -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/8/2005 5:25:35 PM)

Combination of the following text files that come with the game:
master (unit type codes)
targets (political goals)
relstart (starting relationships)
players2 (nations and countries)
eu_prov2 (provinces)
start2 (initial forces, including cities)
commndr (leaders)


Ralegh -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/9/2005 3:29:35 AM)

Hmmm - addition to Tips:

On naval transport of troops:
+ if you sail into a port which you own (or is owned by an ally) and then end your (naval) movement, your troops can disembark and keep marching the following month.
+ bewary - your fleets will move much more slowly when they are laiden with troops: about 2 sea areas a month?
+ some beta users had difficulty with the interface here: think of land forces moving before naval forces (they don't, but this will help you issue orders that will actually be caried out). So:
- move the fleets into the province, end turn
- load the troops and sail out, end turn
- sail to destination sea zone and end turn
- disembark the troops
+ while on board the fleets, your troops will be foragining in a zero zone. To pay for supply, create a sea supply chain...

Ralegh -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/9/2005 5:10:14 AM)

All 5 briefings currently available form the links on this thread have been updated to show:
- city and province names, with sort order by city
- political goals for each nation

The last three briefings will have these items too.

Ralegh -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/9/2005 10:38:36 AM)

Ralegh Briefing - Turkey 1805

Ralegh Briefing - Russia1805

Ralegh Briefing - Sweden 1805

If you want the lot, this link gets you all 8 Briefings and the Tip Guide -
The Lot

Ralegh -> RE: Ralegh Guides (7/9/2005 11:15:16 AM)

OK - here is summary data I find interesting.

The first few columns are pretty obvious. They don't include the city garrisons.
"Max Glory" is the most glory a nation could earn from its Political Goals.
"Cities" includes provinces, conquereds, and protectorates.
"Money" is the base money produced by the provinces (unaffected by population or banks etc) - so this one isn't much use, but its something.
For the ship counts and morale, I have included all ships, not just warships.

Other amusing factoids:
+ Turkey is actually the most capable nation for producing wool+cotton+luxeries - with the second highest luxeries capability (also up there are France and Austria).
+ Turkey also produces the most food (just pipping France), equal second for horses (after Prussia, and equal with France and Austria) and the most spice+luxeries (leading Austria).
+ France has an initial population of 139 - Britian 35 and Sweden 24.
+ In a per-city sense, econonomic capaibility (adding up all the resources) France and Sweden are up the top, Britain, Prussia, Austria and Spain in the middle, and Russia and Turkey have the worst.
+ Again, in a per-city sense, current development (adding up all the levels of developable things like factories and banks), Sweden, Britain, Prussia and France are the most developed, Austria and Spain next, with Russia and Turkey last.
