It looks like this will be a very nice map to play on. One suggestion though. The battle was fought in mid-September so the corn would be ripe and the stalks and leaves would be turning yellow by then.


We were at the battlefield for a tour and photo shoot a week after the anniversary of the battle. All of the live shots in the video are from that trip so you can see the state of the foliage. Fall comes a little later in that part of the country.

Understandable, I figured that the map-pack would be out closer to December then now.

Besides, I still haven’t played on the other two Pipe-Creek-Maps, just the second one!

Yes, we are shooting for it to be ready by Christmas. Progress is steady going and I'm confident we'll meet that goal.

Go play those other Pipe Creek maps! You're missing out.. The third map has the highest heights and the best defensive ground I think.

There's a large fatigue penalty for crossing the creek, and the troops cross at a VERY slow pace.


OK, this is good news, it gives the AI options as to not bunch-up and clog the bridges.

I was just curious about how this game handles the water, considering that Norb stated earlier ( roughly one year ago ) that the water can appear in the game at different levels of the terrain.

As far as South Mountain, screens will be released for those soon. Still quite a bit to complete on those maps before we can release any good screenshots.

Yes. we didn't think it necessary to add water to the Antietam creek, however if we have time at the end we will. There's a large fatigue penalty for crossing the creek, and the troops cross at a VERY slow pace. It's best to use bridges or the fords, if you can find them. There is water in the Potomac though.

As far as South Mountain, screens will be released for those soon. Still quite a bit to complete on those maps before we can release any good screenshots.

I've been promoting SoWGB to our Civil War Round Table since July of last year, trying to peak members' interest and knowing that they'll all become instant SoW addicts once they take a look. So, in the latest Round Table newsletter I'm taking a slightly different approach, using screenshots from the Antietam expansion in a contest to test our guy's knowledge of Lee's 1862 Maryland Campaign. The fun starts on page 7 of newsletter (follow link below).

See you in Maryland!

PS the "Knapsack" on page 6 includes a link to the NSD announcement of SoW's use by the U.S. Army. This should also impress our guys.

We handle a few code support emails every week.  We usually turn them around in less than a day.  It's the usual hard drive crashed, messed up computer, etc.  Nothing crazy.

If those cats fire missiles.


Well from the sound it sometimes, you swear you are in a world of hurt. Hell I even had one hack a ball that must have been about 8 inches in length that could have done massive damage if her head was pointed in the right direction.

Martin from Kriegsspiel has written up a review of SOWGB.  He had great things to say and you all know how much we appreciate hearing what hard core wargamers have to say about SOWGB!

I'm just glad I'm along for the ride and will support your work and as now, promote it as much as possible. It is easy to back what you believe in, as someone who has been in sales and public relations in one form or another for a long time, it's easy to see you have a winning concept and that your idea of business is not one found too often nowadays. I hear integrity in what you are saying and that is something I can use as a model to those whom I have the privilege to teach and advise.

If Norb & the team think a blank sheet is best, I'm happy to be guided by them.

It would be good if the map formats could be retained though, so we could use the existing maps with the new engine when it arrives. Will that be possible, or are they up for grabs too?

Martin


Currently we have no plans on changing the map format. It's not something in the plans, but I cannot promise it won't come up. That's mostly why we don't announce anything too early, we don't want to let people down or set their expectations too high.

That was a very good review. The comments about the AI were spot on. I too, can't think of any game that has a comparable AI.

We have the map pack done and it's up for sale. I'm trying to figure out how to work with all these online shopping carts, not as easy as it could be, but I think that I've got it.


PLEASE NOTE: THE MAP PACKS REQUIRE PATCH 1.3 TO SHOW UP!

PURCHASE HERE!



We've also recently made an agreement with Gamer's Gate to carry the game. This might be better for our Euro paying commanders.

Hi, I started the first scene- Longstreet and twenty minutes no union troops show up- one small question mark- where is the enemy in this battle please? just starting- thanks for reply


It's a mystery on the first scenario.. You've got to go and fine them.. The only clue is the OBJ marker showing the last known position of the enemy skirmish line..



rclark14,
If you really wnat to know what to do, play the second scenario first I don't want to give it away here in the forum. I, of corse did not do it that way. I did beat it but I see it would have been easier another way. I am now working to beat that second scenario

Got Pipe Creek this morning, looks like a great map. This thing is going to be a blood bath in MP.

I want to ask anyone that bought through ShareIt and FastSpring. Did you receive the proper links to download the installer when you purchased?


Hello. I tried share-it first, since in one of your posts this was the only link to purchase Pipe Creek. I wanted to pay with my credit card. I received the mail that the order is being verified and I shall wait up to 24h hours. After 15h I received a mail that they couldnt charge my credit card .
Now I tried fastspring and it worked immediately! No problems with paying, downloading and registering.


Great. That's why we have two means of purchase. Just in case one of them doesn't work for you.
