In QB, no artillery units appear on the screen, yet the action reported includes things like "US Artillery 1 has no casualties." I found that message every turn in one big battle, preceded by "CSA unit such and such has 3,000+ casualties." So Union artillery was devastating. Is this some kind of shadow or abstracted action, or what?

Sometimes the artillery looks like infantry

There is also one or more types that simple are invisble in quick battle. This I believe is addressed in the up coming patch.

They are there you just cant see them, if they are yours you know they are there for placement because the "empty" box is highlighted and when you scroll over it, it gives you the name and stats.

okay, one thing I have seen, is if the Arty has IW weapons, it changes to a Inf Icon for some reason (thinking weapon based)


also, some of the art worked did not get linked up correctly (some late minute changes, and they were not guns types that I normally would be useing, so I didn't see it)

all of the weapon types should show in QC now

(remember, in some of these battles, not even unit will show up, so you may know you have something there and not see it, it means it didn't make it to the battle, but as tribes said, you may see a open space on the grid, right click on it and if it is there, you will see the detail for the unit)

Ah, yes, I see now. Thanks, Chris, Twotribes, Hard Sarge. I'm glad the patch is addressing this.
