Confederate casemate ironclads CSS Louisiana and CSS Mississippi were almost ready. In reality, the ships fought in the Battle of Forts Jackson and St. Philip as immobile floating batteries. The Confederates were evaluated fully prepared both ships is in such a period in our game.



So historical accuracy isn't distorted. All intrigue of opposition was concentrated on these two ironclads. The first round of game doesn't coincide with the first month of war. We chose such moment when the South still had a chance of successful resistance. Then there was an accident in New Orleans and at Confederation didn't remain chances of fight in for the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

There are at least two strategy for a victory. I won't describe them. Our testers found them by trial and error. I understand that it is difficult to play for the Union but it is possible to win.

LOL! Thanks, I understand better now. The Union start is a challenge and has been repeated more than a few times......

I'm looking forward to beating this and to then delve into the real time naval battles. I wanted to crawl first at the strategic level, then give it a whirl at the tactical level, reviewing Rockin Robbins video again.

Good game. My only complaint is the viewing system is a bit wonky and I wind up using my arrows keys more than my mouse.

I'll try to give a hand though some of these are hard as I don't know the context (how they are being used in the game), and I have not played this game. Italics are the original version, regular bold text is my suggestions, anything in () is my comments or questions.


Blockade doesn't allow to move the unit to this place.
A Blockade is preventing you from moving the unit to this location.

Siege doesn't allow to move the unit to this place.
A Siege is preventing you from moving the unit to this location.

Only amphibian units can land to harbor directly.
(I don't understand this one, an amphibian unit is something that can go from the water onto the land and drive around on the land. Are you talking about landing troops on a beach, or docking in the harbor to unload troops?)

Can't move units without warships in enemies harbor.
(I don't understand this one either, do you mean you need to have your own warships in the enemy harbor before you can move non-warships into the harbor? or do you mean there need to be warships in the group of ships you are moving into the harbor)

The ships can be moved only between specialized slots and can't move here.
(no idea what this is supposed to mean)

The ships can be moved only between the slots of your state and can't move here.

The characteristic of seaworthiness don't allow to move the ship to this place.
You cannot move this ship as it is not seaworthy. (I am assuming you mean the ship cannot be moved or it will sink).

War News!!! Warships USS Hartford and USS Brooklyn hits a mine and sunk at the entrance to Mobile harbor.
News from the War!!! The warships USS Hartford and USS Brooklyn have been sunk by mines at the entrance to the harbor in Mobile, Alabama. (I am assuming they did not both hit the same mine together).

Successful torpedo boat attack on a warship! Blockader USS Hartford sank near Mobile harbor.
A torpedo boat has attacked and sunk the USS Hartford! It sank outside Mobile, Alabama, which it had been blockading. (I am assuming here that the USS Hartford was blockading Mobile at the time it was attacked)

Damages less than XX percents doesn't need to be repaired.
Damage below (or 'above', it depends on if the percentage gets bigger or smaller the more a ship is damaged) XX percent do not need to be repaired. (does this mean it is not necessary to repair it, or that the game will not let you repair it?)

Not enough money to repair the warship.
You do not have enough money to repair this warship.

Don't need to reinforce infantry regiment.
You cannot reinforce this infantry regiment, as it is already at maximum size. (I am assuming here that the infantry unit is already full)

Drag the warship's plan on free dock slot in the same harbor as plan.

Not enough money to build the warship.
You do not have enough money to build this warship.

Harbor under attack! No possible to laid down a warship.
You cannot build any warships at this harbor because it is under attack. (does the game stop all warship construction when the harbor is under attack?, or can you continue to build ones that had already been laid down)

Harbor under siege! No possible to laid down a warship.
You cannot build any warships at this harbor because it is under siege. (does the game stop all warship construction when the harbor is under attack?, or can you continue to build ones that had already been laid down)

You do not have enough money to create this infantry regiment.

Harbor under attack! No possible to reinforce an infantry regiment.

Warship USS Hartford headed to New York dry dock for repairs. Works are expected to cost XX and take XX months.
The warship USS Hartford has headed to the New York City dry docks for repairs. The repairs are expected to cost XX and should take XX months to complete. (is this a News event, or something else. Also is the ship in the process of going to new york, or is it there already?)

The new warship USS Hartford was laid down at New York shipyard. Works are expected to cost XX and take XX months.

Anyhow I'll be happy to make edits to what I suggested if you can provide more information to my comments/questions, I need to be able to understand what is happening in game to be able to properly fix it.

Thanks!

Only amphibian units can land to harbor directly. (about landing troops on a beach)

(Infantry) Drag the infantry regiment's plan on free barrack slot in the same harbor as plan.
(drawing and dock or barrack are in the same harbor. to build a ship or infantry regiment you have to drag a drawing of the ship or infantry regiment on any empty dock or barrack only in this harbor.)

(Navy) Harbor under attack! No possible to laid down a warship.

Sorry for the delay. First here are a few corrections, I forgot to remove the capitals from blockade and siege.
Blockade doesn't allow to move the unit to this place.
A blockade is preventing you from moving the unit to this location.

Siege doesn't allow to move the unit to this place.
A siege is preventing you from moving the unit to this location.


And here is the rest.

Only amphibian units can land to harbor directly.
You require amphibian units to land troops at this harbor.
(I'm not sure if this is the best wording. Are amphibian units troops or ships?, also are they just landing at the harbor or assaulting it where enemy troops are defending?)

Can't move units without warships in enemies harbor.
You must move a warship inside the enemy harbor before you can move other units into the harbor.

The ships can be moved only between specialized slots and can't move here.
You cannot move ships into infantry slots.
(to use this, you would need an opposite message for moving infantry in slots, the reverse would be "You cannot move infantry into ship slots." You could also use the more generic "This unit cannot be moved into that type of slot.")

The ships can be moved only between the slots of your state and can't move here.
(is this happening during unit selection, or when creating a scenario, or somewhere else in the game? Anyhow here is a rough version)
You can only move your ships to slots that belong to your country

(Navy) Damages less than XX percents doesn't need to be repaired. Damage less than XX percent does not need to be repaired.
(Infantry) Don't need to reinforce infantry regiment.
This infantry regiment does not need reinforcement. (It would be a good idea to say why this regiment doesn't need reinforcement)
(ships and infantry can be repaired and replenished only if they have lost more than 90% hit points) (does that mean then that you can't repair a ship until it is almost destroyed? Or do you mean it has be damaged a little bit?)

(Navy) Drag the plan for the warship to a free dock slot in the same harbor the plan comes from.
Drag the plan for the warship to a free dock slot in the same harbor.

(Infantry) Drag the infantry regiment's plan on free barrack slot in the same harbor as plan.
Drag the plan for the infantry regiment to a free barrack slot in the same harbor.

(Navy) Harbor under attack! No possible to laid down a warship.
You cannot start construction of a warship as the harbor is under attack (I chose construction as 'laying the keel' would be more confusing to players)
(Infantry) Harbor under siege! No possible to laid down a warship.
(do you mean infantry recruiting for this? If not just replace 'attack' with 'siege' for my last answer)
You cannot start recruitment for a new infantry regiment as the harbor is under siege.

The warship USS Hartford has headed to the New York City dry docks for repairs. The repairs are expected to cost XX and should take XX months to complete.
The warship USS Hartford has reached the New York City dry docks for repairs. The repairs are expected to cost XX and take XX months to complete.

What I don't understand though, is the complete sentence. Who is the siege side? the side that is defending or attacking? I also assume enable means being able to construct defensive works. Anyhow here are two possibilities.


Defensive works enable only for siege side.

Only the attacker can construct defensive works in a siege. (only the side attacking can build defenses)
Only the defender can construct defensive works in a siege. (only the side defending can build defenses)

I already own Ironclads HS. I'm thinking of buying this new one. My question is does the game have a skirmish mode where you can set up custom naval battles? And also in the new update you mention harbor sieges, shore batteries, infantry, etc. Are harbor sieges/port battles etc. included in the tactical portion of the game?

Technically this is not a problem, but by the reviews of players a new game does not need it. All innovations as infantry and heavy artillery, amphibious assaults and harbour sieges only on the turned-based global map.
