I'd like to know before I need to build a ton more scripts to fix another part of the game.

I'm diving into the production system and googling approximate army strengths at start of war 1805 to 1812, the height of the French army, to get an idea of how much production is needed to get there, taking into account replacements.

And what did I find. In your game, Britain starts with an army that's almost 3/4 the size of France in 1805. They have much more money (almost 10x) and get at least 30 more war supplies than the French each month. The French start with 210,000 troops in 1805 and almost quadrupled their army by 1812. The British had a total of 250,000 (8 corp) by 1813. So the math isn't adding up here at all.

Britain is starting with a force, according to your own history reports, 3/4 the size of France. You've given them higher overall production than France and though historically, their army was very small and made 250k by 1813, in your game, the British will be roughly equivalent to the French by 1812-1813, when they were in reality, about 1/3 the size of the French.

What were you thinking? Were you thinking?

Precisely I agree with you jackdoom. This is why there is no WoN game playing here, it doesnt match up, Id like to help you out with this in a mod. other factors are a 24 week compulsory peace term. the way it is now its basically perpetual war in Europe along with minor countries. You cant control minors directly even after massive occupation, I have seen a mod for this but cant load it. There is no way you can control minors the building of troops.
I was thinking of moding it to be like EiA rules actually, you will find the stats in EiA more acurate

Oh you two. Some stats support your notion, but not most.

What do players want? Historical, whole new problem or playable wargame?
Probably the latter.

I think Both is the objective actually ess1. To have GB forces half that of what the French had at start is unrealistic. At least there should be an historical start, hey
