Not sure, I have had Commanders with almost every nation so far, except Minors. Plus I rarely see much of an impact on the battlefield with them anyway..not sure what you get for them...sometimes they have negative impacts by their details?

HAIG, has a bad defense rating, combined with a good assault rating.

What I do with Haig is use him for an attack, once the attack is all done and my entire turn is about over, is remove/detach him from the game, then next turn attach him somewhere. His poor defence rating can really hurt you in a counter offence if you leave him in the game all the time.

The same can be done with the 2 French generals that have poor defense ratings.

To me using the attach/detach of generals to different locations can enhance gameplay.

Perhaps there is a subtle difference with the commander. I'd like to actually see it. Does this impact dice as I see no precise formula for the offense/defense ratings?

The unit that has has a commander will have a little red X in it's box... Took me a few matches to notice... you can detach the commander and then replace him to another unit of your choosing...
P.S. I still think they're worth a bucket of spit

ok.. I found the unit info stuff... Haig looks bad for the defensive areas... which in the early war you really need them all to be... thanks

Before attaching a commander to a unit, take a look at it's (units) attack/defense values. Then attach the commander, you should notice a change up or down in those values, not just that unit, but also other units within commander's range.

New art for General Douglas Haig. I have removed the minus defence rating for Haig! It is bad enough fighting without having a commander, whose stats are a liability.( I'm in the process of adding new art work + new commanders for all Countries )

I will be adding a lot of new commanders, I'm working my way through each country at the moment, I have just finished James McCudden. So the answer to your question is yes I will be doing Ludendorff.

This is what I thought the stock COMMANDERS GAME would be like. Have to admit, that I don't know anything about how to save my stock game file, to download your juicey looking MOD. Free advice is accepted!!!!

Oneotherthing, Just finnished a CP 1914 game (ended Apr. 1916), yet there were Commanders, that met all the requirements to enter into game play, but never did, or they only entered years after where they should have, was befuddleing to me. Is this issue the same in your MOD?

I have had the same problem with no show commanders in the game from the first time I played, another thing I could not understand, was how many commanders that should have been included but were not, so this mod will fix all that, I'm still at an early stage off adding these, but if anyone would like to use them in game now, they should not negatively affect any scenario's. Adding commanders only really affects 3 data files, the commander graphics file, the language file ( only in English at the moment ) and the commanders script file. I can make available all that have been added too or edited at the present time, plus any new commanders that I have still to add, will be complete new ones, and they will be added below the current number of 54 commanders. So the next one will be in position 55 etc !

UPDATE CLICK THE LINK AND GET YOUR NEW COMMANDERS !

OK link available, all the above new commanders will be available for you to use. Anyone can use these, they only changes the commanders in game, Please backup your Commanders graphics file, your commanders script data file + English language file. Once you have backup these files, delete the originals from your game, and replace with these 3 new ones, and that's it done your ready to play with new commanders enjoy.
